15-JAN-09 Update

Ok, so I haven’t updated in a while.

Christmas.  What do you say about the holiday?  This day is made for children and this year was no exception.  Marisol had lost her ‘Bowie’ stuffed kitten – actually the character ‘Marie’ from the Disney cartoon ‘Aristocats’.  We found one on eBay, but didn’t notice that it was the larger one.  As far as Marisol knew, Bowie came home a little bigger.  She screamed when she opened the present.  Isabel had been asking for a scooter and Vicki found one at Target, a red one.  She’s an outside girl and it made her happy.  Sofia, being the girlie-girl that she is wanted and got a Barbie house.  (There were other gifts, but these stand out most for me.)

The other thing that makes Christmas special is all the family.  Sure we have our issues from time to time, but we’ll always be family.  Tamales, ham, snacks, drinks.  Music.  It’s all good.

Oh, Santa Ana got da Mama a new television.  She needed one.  The nice thing with the new Samsung’s is that they include digital TV receivers so she won’t need a separate receiver.  Ana also picked up a nice antenna, so da Mama now has stations that she didn’t know existed. 😀

New Years was nice, all football, all the time!  Again, family time.  Drinks, food, snacks, the usual.  What more can you say?

Marisol just had her 5th birthday (5-JAN-09).  She had cupcakes, which was important for her, some small gifts, and just had an all around good time.  My gift was some one-on-one time with her, I took her to McDonalds so she could play in their play center.  She wore a tiara.  She kept the tiara on when I took her to go pick up the twins at school.

Vicki had her birthday the next day (6-JAN-09).  We were kind of worn out, so we didn’t do anything that day.  We ended up going to Red Lobster on the Thursday before my birthday, which was Friday (9-JAN-09).

That’s enough for now. 🙄
