Turkey day is near!

Can you believe in two days it will officially be Thanksgiving??  Geez, this year flew by.  Sofia is almost 14 months old!!  Good lord, pretty soon she will be 15 and driving.  But let's leave that for another post.

Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday of the year.  I get to see all of my family (crossing fingers) and it revolves around eating!!!  My two favorite things. :)  Every year since I can remember, Thanksgiving has been held at my aunt Lydia's house.  We all get together, eat, laugh and eat some more.  I sometimes make a dish but this year I am off the hook!  I only have to bring plates, forks and drinks -- SCORE!!!  I can totally rock that one out.

BUT, I'm not totally off for this great holiday. I am hosting dinner for Boogie's family.  Aint' I sweet? I am making the turkey, opening a few cans of veggies :) and making a sugar-free dessert.  I know that sounds foreign coming from me, but Boogie's mom is a diabetic and it wouldn't be fair if we were all eating yummy desserts in front of her. I hope the pie comes out ok -- I'll let you know if she eats it or throws it in my face!

I will post afterwards and pictures of the day!  Last year Sofia was so small and I actually FORGOT to take pictures!!! What a loser.  But this year, I will tell Cassie to. LOL!

Happy Thanksgiving people!!!!!!

It's been a while...

Man I have neglected my blog for way too long! It's almost thanksgiving and December is around the corner!!!!  How the hell did that happen?

Well I was ACTUALLY busy at work in the month of November so that explains my absence.  But now that it is sort of slow here, I will do my best to catch up!

Happy November People!!!

Can you believe it's already November 1?  Where the heck did the year go??  I swear I just turned 30 and now I'm about to be 31!!!  Man, I'm old.

Well I guess we can start counting down to Thanksgiving!  Which , by the way, is my favorite holiday of the year...surprise, surprise, it revolves around eating and watching football!

And it also means that I can start Christmas shopping!!  And let's not forget about BLACK FRIDAY!!  The only day out of the year that it's ok to start a fight in Walmart over a $5 sweater!! :)

Let's gear up for the crazy holidays!! BRING IT ON!!

Happy Halloween!!

Halloween came and went but it was a good one.  Last year Sofia was just a wee 3 weeks old and this year she was able to walk and ask for candy!  It's crazy how a year changes things. :)

Anyway, we went trick-or-treating in Conroe.  Yes, THAT Conroe.  Why so far you ask?  We always celebrate Halloween with our good friends The Riveras.  They also happen to be Sofia's god-parents and we have baptized two of their kids. :)  So I guess you can say we are TIGHT! :)

Sofia was a beautiful fairy for Halloween.  At one of my baby showers, she was given wings AND a tutu and I never knew when she would EVER wear it but alas, a time came.  Look how cute she looked!!!

Miss Betty Rodriguez KNEW she NEEDED these two things in her closet and boy was she right!!!  I thought for sure Sofia was going to be pissed off that she had to wear the wings and the tutu but she was a perfect lady and fairy.  She never once tried to take them off.  She is a natural prissy princess.  LORD HELP ME!

Sofia LOVED being able to walk in the middle of the street with all the other million and two kids that were out last night.  She never got scared of all the scary faces and people trying to scare her. She would just look at them and keep walking.  She's from the hood...she's used to scary people. :)

Here are some more pictures from the evening.  I can't wait for next year!!!!!!!!

She was trying to steal the pumpkins. I told you she was from the HOOD! :)

Sofia and her god-sister Priscilla.

Happy Fairy!

Sofia and her dumb dad.

She was too cute walking in this outfit!!

I hope you had a great Halloween as well!!!!  I can't wait to eat all of the candy. :)
