Briella Laughs

Today we got Briella to finally laugh! She would squeal and get excited but she wouldn't laugh out loud. Tonight she thought it was pretty funny to put her hand on my nose. It was so cute! She's also finally grabbing toys.

Oh Christmas! What a fun day! The kids had so much fun. This was the first year we stayed home on Christmas Eve. We've always gone to Jose's aunts house for the traditional Venezuelan Christmas dinner. This year we decided to stay home and just hang out. Christmas morning the kids woke up to this...
Santa had come.. and I surprised Alyssa with the bedding she's been waiting for that my friend Kira made. It turned out awesome. Now if we can just figure out her bed.
Kira made the girls matching bedding and all the kids a hooded towel with their names on it.
The fun begins....

Alyssa gets the DS she was hoping for!
Dominic got his Buzz and Woody

Briella just sat and watched...

Buzz Lightyear to the rescue!

Briella with her cute new hat.
She's so sweet...
Then off to Grandma's house....

Alyssa and her funky hat! She begged and pleaded at Nordstroms for over an hour for that hat. My mom surprised her with it. She was SO excited.
That's my girl!

Cale.. Leo and Briella with her awesome hat hair.

At Christmas dinner we played a little air hockey.. Dominic thought it was pretty cool to bed on dad's team. What a wonderful day!

Briella 3 months

Briella is 3 months now. She's such a good baby. She sleeps from 8-8:30 at night and loves to talk. She will smile and laugh and coo. She's so much fun. She's eating 6oz now every four hours and weighs in at about 10lbs. She's such a blessing and a joy to have in our family.

Festival of Trees

The festival of trees was a lot of fun this year. The kids had a blast. I'd have the say the coolest thing was the giant bubble and the cinnamon rolls.

Face Painting...

Pretty girl!
Shelby was named after this car. It's a Shelby Cobra 427. Shelby's birthday is also 4/27

My favorite gingerbread house.. from the movie up.

New Moon

Yes, i'm one of those people! Two years ago I read a book with and apple on the cover. Stephenie Meyer rocked my world. I joined TwilightMOMs shortly after and have had the time of my life. This year we did an event at the Expo center called the New Moon Experience! We had cars, photobooths, La Push, Forks and Volterra. We had amazing vendors and Alice's Salon. After six months of planning, lots of drama, and meeting a lot of great girls. I can't believe it's over! Only 216 days until Eclipse!

La Push...

I really like my hair curly
Valerie, Kristen and I waiting for a little of this....
and a whole lotta this....
The movie was awesome! Greatly improved from Twilight. I will always love the books more but they did a great job!
On day two I really liked my hair curly so I had the girl do it again right before my shifts started...
my crazy comittee heads Steph and Rae
and one of the sweetest Amy's she just makes you happy by being around her...

When it was all over the Reelz channel put on a little after party. Some how Valerie got me to dance. It was a lot of fun. I can't wait to do it again!
