Christmas Day

Santa came! He brought all types of goodies for these spoiled kids of mine. It was a great Christmas, and the kids are set for life for toys.
Christmas morning is always so fun to watch the children's expressions. They are so excited, and can't wait to start opening. Here is some pictures from our Christmas morning here and over at Grandma Dominguez's house.

Christmas Eve

This year for Christmas Eve, we went to the Culler's house. We enjoyed pisolee and tamales. I love family traditions. This year once again, my kids were the only small kids there to do the Christmas Story. They did a great job, and looked super cute though. Unfortunately I only had my cell phone to take pictures. We went to church to midnight mass, so I forgot to grab my camera on the way out...again. Here are a few pictures from Christmas Eve.
Here's Bryce...the donkey with Mary (Amiah) and Joseph (Aiden)
Here's Jonathan with Jeremiah the two Shepards.
Here's Mary, Joseph, and a Shepard with baby Jesus (teddy bear).
The Valerios where hilarious this year...they all came with some type of facial hair sweaters they scored at savers, and some sweet mugs! It was so funny!

Amiah and Aiden's Private Dance Preformance!

The kids have been home for Christmas Break, and are always looking for stuff to do. Well this day, they came up with this all on their own. Amiah had her room all prepared for a recital. She had chairs in a row, and even made a sign for the door. Here's Jeremiah getting ready to watch their big show!

Aiden sported this awesome Hat from his Dads Halloween costume.

Amiah was all decked out in her dress up ballerina outfit, and my moms wedding veil.

Here they are dancing together to some beautiful music Amiah picked out.
I guess Aiden needed to be higher, so he was standing on the bed in some parts. This is when Amiah was supposed to catch him jumping off the bed into her arms.
My kids are so entertaining, they come up with the most random things, I love it. Thank you two for the beautiful performance. I will remember it always!

Happy 2nd Birthday Jeremiah!

I can't believe my baby is already 2! He absolutely loves Mickey Mouse, so I thought he would enjoy Mickey on his Birthday cake! Jacob's aunt Lupe makes the best cakes, and we are so lucky to be able to get them for each birthday!
Here he is blowing out his candles, he was more then ready to blow them out. He kept trying the whole time we were singing. His big sister kept him back though until the end.
Yummy Cake!!!
Present Time! He had plenty of help from his older sister and brother of course.
Here he is enjoying some of his new toys!
Happy Birthday my little Jer-Bear. I love you so much, you bring such happiness in our lives. You have such a strong personality, and I love every bit of you!

Elementary Christmas Program

I love the Christmas Programs that the Elementary school puts on each year. They kids do so good, and it is always so entertaining. This year it was fun to watch Amiah and Aiden both in it. Here are some pictures of them singing. I put their names by them, so you can see where they are standing.

Here they are posing for the camera before we headed to the High School!

Here's the Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders.

Here is the whole school!

I even got to put my photographs in the Local newspaper. My pictures made front page! HOLA! With my Business Name MD PHOTOGRAPHY! That was exciting to see too...I know I am lame. LOL!

11 Years Baby!

We just celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary! I can't believe we have been married for 11 years. Wow...we are getting old. But you know what, he does seem like much longer. Probably because we are High School sweethearts. We have been dating off and on since I was just a Sophomore in High School. What a long road and fun journey we have had together. I look forward to the many more years together. I love you my Hubalicious Jacob!

Turkey Day!

Thanksgiving was at my house this year. Sorry no pictures, I have been slacking on that department lately. I have been so incredibly busy with my own business, that I just don't take pictures at home like I should. But I promise I will get better.

We had my family come over, and it is always fun with them. My brother even came out to his first in a while holiday with the family. It was good to see him, and his wife again.

We of course love it when my sister comes to town, and she was here with us for a few days.

We ate and ate, and had so much food left over.

I am so thankful for my wonderful family. I love all my ants and uncles, and all my cousins. I am so grateful to be in such an awesome family. Thank you all for coming once again to my house for Turkey Day!

My Sweet Aiden

Poor Aiden this year at his school, he has been every where. He first started in the Early Childhood program as a pier model. Then he got pulled from that class for needing more attention as he is young, and struggles in certain areas. So they put him in Special Kindergarten. Since the teachers did it without going through the proper school guidelines and process, he got pulled from that class, and is now enrolled in Kindergarten.
He is now in Mrs Hauver's class, with resource help, and speech help. He has been on an emotional roller coaster, but now I think he is doing so much better. He loves his new class, and he will be held back in Kindergarten, as my request. Which the teachers strongly support my opinion.
He is really young, and I don't want him to struggle with his whole school life, and end up hating school. I feel this is the best way for him to go, and hope only next year he will learn more! I love you my crazy Aiden!
Oh, and he goes by Jacob at school now it gets confusing for him at home. I just can't seem to call him Jacob...even though that is his first name. He will always be my little Aiden.

Turkey Projects

I had Aiden go collect a bunch of pine combs for us so we can make some Turkeys. They turned out super cute, and the kids had a blast making them. I got some feathers at Michael's along with some googly eyes. My mom helped the kids, and me and Jacob made ours. Jacob had to go way over board...for someone who thought it was a gay idea, sure had fun.Add Image Here are our famous Turkeys we made!
Here's Jeremiah playing with some feathers.
Aiden's little Turkey!
Amiah and my Mom putting the last touches on it.
Jeremiahs, Aidens, Amiahs, Mine and then Jacobs
It was a lot of fun, the kids had fun showing them off to people who came over on Thanksgiving.

A long awaited reunion.

I don't speak much of my brother on here. I try to avoid the conversation on all accounts, as it is hard for me to accept what has happened to our family. But recently I have been writing him, as it has been 2-1/2 years of any and all contact with him. I am sceptical of it, and it seems so surreal. But we are trying to build back our relationship that was lost years ago. I am anxious and nervous, but excited to see what the future holds. He is coming for dinner, and bringing his new wife. He still has never meet my youngest son. So it will be an exciting reunion. So cheers to the future.

Veterans Day Parade

Me and Amiah got to ride on the Lin's float with my mom and Kayla. My mom needed some extras to help throw candy, and help support her float. Here is Amiah on the float, with my mom and Kayla. It was so cold and windy, but we had fun throwing candy to everyone.

We took the kids trick-or-treating in Vegas. We went with Alex and Josie and their two boys. The kids had a lot of fun, and got way too much candy.

Jeremiah was so funny, he would walk next to someone and say, "I'm Cute!" Aiden was cracking us up too that night, after we would leave the houses, he would say, "Thank You, and Happy Thanksgiving". I swear I wonder where that boy comes from sometimes. Amiah is just a little scaredy cat, but I lover her.

I just love going to Vegas, cause you hit on neighborhood, and you are done. It is always fun when the houses are all decorated, and the kids get nervous to go up to the door. We are right there with them, but it is fun to watch them. Can't wait for next year!

Here's a better picture of the kids in the costumes!

Amiah as the Queen of hearts, Jeremiah as a puppy, and Aiden as a Police officer, or as Aiden called it "A Police Cop".
