Halloween 2015

I love Halloween and I miss the fall weather from chicago's suberbs!

But I can't complaint how beautiful Florida is.

We had so much fun this year, we got together with Eliott and his kids and Will and his kids.

We ate pernil with Sherri's amazing aroz con gandules and tostones. Eliott made my cheesecake recipe and I think it may have been better than mine :) Tiana made pumpkin pie and Sherri also made brownies. I brought pumpkin bread and all was very yummy!

We started this tradition when we were in Illinois before you girls came along and we decided to keep going at it this year. We told scary stories and played games "gestures" and went trick or treating ate a lots of candy!

This year Emma was Sofia the First and Seylah was Hello Kitty (yeah same as your birthday) And Andrea was bambi!

I did your make up, Andreas', Jay's and mine :)

This is what happened after Halloween

Emma's School Pictures 2015

These where so cute that I couldn't just choose one!

It's only been 3 months and I'm impress how much you have learned at school. The second week you started writing your last name! 

You know your numbers in Spanish and English from 1-20!

According to your teacher you work well with others, your respectful towards them, you try to resolve your own problems (if it was more like that at home). 

You assume responsibility for your actions, complete task once started, you listen, participate with the group and you share and take turns.

I'm so proud of you my Emma!

Another year to celebrate you girls

I have been wanting to write this since your birthday party.....but time just past me by and here we are today.

This year we celebrated your birthday with two different characters, for you Emma you wanted Sofia the First and Seylah, Hello Kitty.

As always I wait for the last minute to make your decorations. This year I said I wasn't going to do it big, something small but not as much as I did in the past.

I have the best family ever because they helped me out so I really had to handle was the decorations and making your cake.

Now the cakes were fun, I liked the way Seylah's turned out better.

Whats more important is that we all had a great time and you both enjoyed every minute of it!

You both got lost of gifts (clothes and the cutest boots in the world) that I totally want for myself :)

N-e ways I can't believe Emma your 5 and Seylah your 4!
When I look at both of you, pictures in my head of when you girls were babies and I miss those days. Regardless I know I gotta take advantage of these special times as well.

Seylah the day after you turned four we dropped Emma off at school and you said to me "now can I go with Emma, I'm like this...(giving me your four finger)" It was so cute, but I had to tell you the bad news.

You are talking so much now, still you say some cute words here and there, you are getting so big too fast for my liking!

You get so angry sometimes because you want to do things on your own that you still can't handle and some things you can....maybe is just me that doesn't want to let go.

Emma you are the true definition of 5 going on 20! You are such a mommy with Seylah even though Seylah doesn't like it sometimes.

I can see both of your personality developing and is just a beautiful thing that I'm here to see it all unfold!
