Can you spot a real smile

I got 11 out of 20. My husband got 12 out of 20. I think I tried too hard. Let me know what you get!

Saturday Siobhan had her dance class. Then we had a Family Reunion at Irvine park. Sunday I dropped Siobhan and Krystal at the Main Place Mall. Afterwards we went shopping to buy a big blow up pool. The kids enjoyed the pool Monday. I was out there with my book, wine cooler, enjoying the kids splashing me about every 3 seconds. Tuesday all of us (minus Bradley- he didn't want to go) went out for a nice lunch of Indian food. Yummy. If you will in So. Cal, check out this place, the best! Haveli's Go for the buffet!

Sam, our friendly Electrician came to install the electrically for our new bathtub. He brought his wife Judy too. Talk about a couple of fun, sweet people. Those two have it nailed. What a wonderful marriage they must have too!

Last night Siobhan spent the night at her Nana Carol's house. Today I will be taking Krystal to the bank to deposit all her graduation money she has received so far. I might take Siobhan to get her hair trimmed. I need to go to the pet store. Tonight I pick up Siobhan's dance pictures and take her to the doctor. She complains often after eating that her belly hurts. The doctor suggested to try prunes and see if it helps, if not bring her in. Well, it didn't so we are going today to follow up.

I think my hubby wants a sandwich from Mattern Sausage & Meats. Yummy! I might just have to stop and pick up a big meat filled sandwich for a mere $3 something.

And baby makes SEVEN

My husband has been bothering me like crazy lately that we should have another baby. As is, we have FOUR children. What will we do with another? I have been a mother for almost 18 years and finally, ahhh yes finally, I am actually starting to feel like a person. I do not want another child, of that I am sure. But the more he talks.. how could I not love another little Eric/Di? A beautiful little angel. He answers all my questions and concerns correctly. Where will the baby go? I am too old. blah, blah blah.

I don't think I can handle getting up "all night" long. I just don't know. Of course I would want to give my husband anything he wants. He is such a fabulous dad. I love him and all four little brats so much. The pressure!

My two girls

Siobhan and Krystal went to the mall on Sunday to buy bathing suits. Siobhan just "had" to take the pictures. Yeah, I am sure she really had to talk Krystal into it!

Last La Fea mas Bella tonight

  • Tonight is the last La Fea mas Bella. I think we have been watching it every weeknight for almost a year now. It was supposed to end in January but they have kept going. Tonight is the night! I just know Lety is going to pick Fernando. I know I would!
  • I didn't cry

    I did tear up a little bit at the end when they announced the graduation class of 2007, but just misty eyed. I surprised myself!

    She was so excited to be done. She thought the graduation was boring (it was, aren't they always!). We were all there, her Uncle Tony, Aunt Emma, cousin Holly, Uncle Mark, cousin Tyler, and both Grandma's. It was nice. Everyone came over our house afterwards for cake. She was so excited by her new Macbook (she photo below). She cried! Ahhh, doesn't get much better than that!

    Krystal and Siobhan

    Krystal is a high school graduate

    Here she is, graduation night, with her new Macbook. A gift from her wonderful parents (if I do say so myself!) Ahhh, college, here she comes.

    Today, I will cry

    I will cry today. I will cry freely. I am sure they will be coming in buckets.

    Today my oldest daughter graduates high school. It is a turning point. She is grown. I can no longer deny it. She IS grown. Still a lot to learn, don't get me wrong, but grown nonetheless. I will cry knowing she is through with high school. I will cry that she will be a college student. I will smile with the joy of knowing that Eric and I have raised a wonderfully loving, bright, caring, thoughtful and all around great kid! No one could argue the fact that our daughter is one of the sweetest girls around.

    I will cry that my Dad is not here to sit with us as she receives her diploma. I will cry that I am getting older. I will cry that I will do this three more times after today.

    I can not believe how quickly children grow. When you are little time is SO slow. Christmas never gets here. When is school going to be over for the summer? Will my birthday ever come? Will I ever be 10? 18? 21? Once the kids get here, time is suddenly running by. Who said my kids could grow up in a blink of an eye. Because that is JUST what it seems like, a blink. A mere second, and all is changing.

    Today I will cry. I will cry with pride as I know my daughter will attend and complete college, more than likely with an advanced degree. I will cry because I am so proud of who she has become.

    Out of the mouth of babes

    When we go to Mexico, the kids spend most of the time in the pool. Yesterday Siobhan had water play at her preschool. In the morning we were putting on sunscreen when she said, "This smells like Mexico". I explained why it reminded her of Mexico. On the way to school she said "Now I smell like Mexico". oh sometimes they are too much! ha ha
