Family Fun

This picture is supposed to be our Christmas card...oh wait Luis is holding a saw in his hand, so I guess not...

So a 10 day break with no posting. I still have to finish all of my school applications but I am slowly but surely getting there. We went up north for Thanksgiving and had a really nice time. My mom cooked for us and cooked some more for us. My dad took us to Twilight and ice cream, where I was able to get some Mackinac Island Fudge Ice Cream! Yummy! We also went and cut down our Christmas tree and that was a blast. It took about 10 min. But Luis cut it down no problem. We also saw Greta and Sara and their mens.
It was really nice to get away, tomorrow at work Christmas Craziness will start and I am so looking forward to it. Luis and I am making our advent calendar tonight where we are putting activities in for the days leading up to Christmas.
Today our searom at church was about parenting. I am really thankful that I have such amazing parents. I hope to continue on this parenting journey in a way that is successful for Matias. I know that I have a lot to work on, to make myself a better person and parent. I really want to improve myself to benefit those around me. I think I have made some small changes but I ready to do more.

Matias had a really good time with his grandma and grandpa. This is only one of the strange and interesting activities they found for Matias to do.

Taking a quick Break


Where have I been? Crafting and google reader. I am taking a vacation from the Internet for the next week or so. I need it!!!!! and I also need to get my social work applications completed and get our house in order before December hits. And hopefully get all my Christmas gifts done. Luis and I are helping with a food giveaway this weekend at church and I am really excited to volunteer and be around others that are willing to serve too. Luis hopefully will be helping to translate and will be working in the children's ministry. We are also excited to be going up north for thanksgiving next week. I am so excited to spend time with my WHOLE family and not have to explain that Luis is working, because he has the time off. YEAH!!
I am just feeling really grateful for the time that I have been given to figure out what is important to me and how can I think about that more, the good things.

Universal please get my messages

Over the past few weeks I have been dealing with some challenges in regards to health care and how to pay for it. I have not been sleeping well, worrying and over all have general anxiety about the whole situation. I have been asking God to just take away the worry...well today I figured out the majority of what I needed to, all thanks to a very sweet phone representative. I was so relived to get the answers I needed and from a person that was not judgemental of the entire situation. So I know that she will never read my blog, but I wanted to put out the gratitude into the universe so that she might get just a little bit of it.

I am excited that I start my online class in a few short days! I am ready to learn again. I am also am working diligently on my school applications and that is fun but it makes me anxious. So but whatever happens will happen and I will be grateful for that choice. Right Universe! :)

In other news, Matias is being a complete toddler today which is a nice way of say his powers are being used for pure evil. Except when he made flirty eyes at a new baby and blew her a kiss....other wise he has eaten 1 ego, 4 pieces of cereal, milk and some juice and is taking nap number 2 for the day. So I don't go insane.

PS Sam L I am glad you are back, I missed you girl!
