Bianca and Daniel are officially on vacation for the next two weeks! And Carlos is on vacation. So the holidays have officially begun around here. Christmas gifts are bought, wrapped and under the tree. Woohoo! I hope to do some holiday baking tomorrow. And beginning Sunday until Christmas day, it will be hectic! I'll be sure to take lots of pictures! Have a wonderful weekend and if I don't make it back on here before Christmas...have a *blessed* Christmas!

But unfortunately, I don't get to enjoy the tree as much as I'd like. We have to keep the doors to the living room closed because we have two little people like this who just want to know all the ornaments down and eat the tree. hehe!

Last year, we added two to our Christmas list (the twins). This year, Nataniel was added! And next year, we will be adding Tatiana Brianna! Yep, my lil sis is having a girl!!!! I'm stoked! OK...no more babies!!! I'm gonna need to actually work outside the home just to afford Christmas gifts for all these kids. LOL!

OK, I really need to stop making cards for other people and do my own. hehe!

For the first one, we were challenge to use a xmas song in our layout and the main color of the layout had to be red. And for the second one, we had to use clear embellishments and alter them. I sprinkled some glitter on mine. Love the look of it.
And just to give you a little smile to start off your week...here's Jaz playing peek-a-boo! Not because she's mine...but isn't she adorable?! hehe!
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!

The next day we headed to a Citrus Farm so the kids could pick some oranges. That was a first for us. It was so much fun! The kids really had a blast. Here's Daniel:
And here they are enjoying the oranges!
Oh, and just a reminder...the Scrap4Life weekend crop is going on right now! There are some awesome classes and challenges. Don't forget stop by! And best of all, Jodie, the owner, is giving away a December kit and a $50 gift certificate to the store! You can't beat that!
Have a great weekend!!

One of the best things from that weekend was that my sister flew in from New York and I got to hang out with this handsome little guy. He was so tiny the last time I saw him. Isn't he just adorable in that tie?!
I think I may have gotten a little too *picture happy* because after awhile he wasn't too happy with me. Take a look for yourself.
My sister didn't seem to have a problem with the camera though. hehe!
I wasn't too sure how the twins were going to react with a new baby in the house, but the three of them seem to have hit it off just fine! Aren't these guys adorable?!

Isn't it great?! Aren't those alterable ornaments from Creative Imaginations so cute?! Here are all the fun stuff I created using this kit (and I still have product left over)! Woohoo! More fun stuff to make!
Here's a close-up of some of my favs!
Look at how small Daniel was!! That photo was taken in 1998. I think Jazlyn looks so much like him. And I love this next one, too! That *snowflake* paper is just so cool! That's Bianca hard at work making snowflakes.
Here are a couple of other things I made using the kit:
This was my first time altering a bag, it was lots of fun! And like I said earlier, these ornaments are too cute! I did those swirls using the Crafter's Workshop template. Oh, and I know the photo is a *bit* old but that was all I could find for now. As soon as I get one with all the kids, I'll replace that one. hehe!
I'll be back soon, I took some really cute pictures these past few weeks that I can't wait to share with you guys! Oh, and tomorrow I'm going shopping *sola*! My sweet husband took the day off from work to stay with the kids so that I could go Christmas shopping with my sister-in-law and mother-in-law! Love that man!

They are truly a blessing in my life and every day bring me so much joy. Gotta admit...I do make some cute kids...huh?! hehe! I should probably give some credit to my husband too, huh?! hehe!
I am also so grateful for my wonderful parents. They have always believed in me! I thank them for the values they have instilled in me that I will try so very hard to instill in my children.
But not only are they the best parents, they are wonderful grandparents. My children ADORE these two people!
I am lucky to have these girls as my sisters! We truly are best friends. I know I can always count on them! Love ya, girls!
And last but not least....my husband's *crazy* family! I feel right at home with them. They treat me just like one of their own. I feel blessed to be part of their family.
I could go on forever! But these fall way up on the top of my list. God has truly been good to me! And all that I have is because of him.
"Give thanks to the Lord."

Have a good weekend!

We also had the in-laws over for the weekend. DH's parents are here visiting from Puerto Rico. So it was quite the full house this weekend!
We hosted game night on Saturday, too!! I ate soooo much! One of our friends brought over a Turtle Pumpkin Pie.....OMG...it was soooo good! There's still some in the fridge...I'm trying really hard to *ignore* it. It's getting harder and harder as the day goes on. hehe!
Sunday afternoon we headed up to Tarpon Springs with DH's family. Tarpon Springs is this cute little Greek town! The best Greek food around! I enjoyed a yummy gyro (like I needed that)! But oh so worth it!
FUN WEEKEND! But now we are exhausted from it all! Can you tell?
