Christmas Recap

Here we are with our new Christmas gear on! Matias legs are resting on the bump. Luis is looking handsome in his new North Face Jacket. He is starting to look like an "outdoorsy" type :) I am ok with that he looks pretty cute no matter what he is wearing.

I consider this a Holiday event. Congrats ,Jim and Christine (who are in Paris!!) The wedding was really beautiful and we had a blast all though we left before the dancing due to a pretty squirrely toddler. It was great to see everyone and Jim and Christine are so in love, which makes me extremely romantic.

Matias showing off some moves before the dancing had begun!
We spent a ton of time with family over the last 2 days and it is a blessing to have such a diverse group of people to celebrate with. I am truly honored to be part of such a warm, caring and generous group of people.
In other news, I will be 26 in a week! *eek* I am working on my application tonight for the MSW program, we will see if I get in. I am leaving that one up to the big guy and just putting all of my paperwork in place. It seems like the right thing to do at this point in my life. I hope to serve people in some capicty.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

Everyone is talking about how cold it is and 4sure it is cold. But I offer a counterpoint to all this cold.

In Miami today it was 80..........

It is 80 right next to my furnace vent....take that all you Flordians.

Comings and Goings

Hi all!

Wow I have been a terrible updater. I missed the most important milestone of this blog because after all it is mostly to keep people updated about Matias and how great being a momma is.

Matias is 2, we kept it very low key, and went to Underwater Adventures at the MOA and then to Bubba Gump for dinner, where Luis and I shared a main entree and appetizer and Matias got his own shrimp boat filled with food. (Oh he got the same amount of food as us too...)

We then had family over on Sun. to the tune that I am still recovering from all the fun :)

Coming up this weekend we are planning a Holiday baking extravaganza! We Decided to make treats for everyone we know and are planning to do the baking this weekend. Tonight after ECFE I plan on making a list and checking it twice to figure out the amount ingredients and cookies we will need to make. I think that it will be really really fun. If everyone has a good attitude about it. :) That includes myself.
We are then going to be busy people over the next few weeks, we have a wedding (Yeh! Christine and Jim!) Parents coming and Christmas, oh and then my birthday(with an accompany DR appt where the receptionist said she would give me a present, a cup to pee in. Sweet!)!!! Woo Hoo!
Did I mention all the gifts I need to finish making and that I need to call the contractor to come and pour our basement oh and finish an acdemic paper for Social Work school at the U( really people) slow down a little plz!

How is this possible

We finished all of our laundry exactly one week ago. Now this picture above, awaits me on our landing.

The last 2 days have been very busy with lots of working going on. Which in a word can be describe as stressful. On the flip side when I got home tonight I plugged in the Christmas Tree, had some cranberry bread, read blogs that made me really happy, and chatted with Ellen. All things made me feel ok about where things are at right now in this moment.

Tomorrow Dr appts and laundry and prepping for Matias's b-day. I think stickers might be a good gift but I have not clue...any ideas for a 2 year old b-day present?
