Cleaning out the closets!

Once I get started on something, there's no stopping me! We were just getting the house cleaned up, but once I saw the girls' closet I had to do something about it! What a mess! Then I realized that it is fall, so I took all the summer clothes out, made a "get rid of" pile, "too small for Mic, so going to Summerlin" pile, and a "still good for next year" pile. It's a not so fun job, but someone has got to do it, and now I can go into their closet and not freak out....that is until about a week when it's a mess again. I did the same for Roman, I got rid of some of his clothes, baby's grow so fast. There are some cute outfits, that bring back memories of when he was little...why is it so hard to get rid of some clothes? I can't keep everything, so I at least have pictures to remind me of the cute outfits and the memories that go along with it. I have to say, my husband was so good and helped me get our rooms organized. Thanks honey! I have to thank him in person, because I doubt he will read this. I better get finished up, we have two soccer games today at the exact same time, so we have to split up today...busy evening.

My baby boy (not baby anymore) is 13!!

Saturday was an awesome, yet busy day. We woke up, went downstairs (Andres was having a sleepover) and we woke up Andres and his two friends with the Happy Birthday song. We hugged, we kissed and we gave him his presents. We got him two hoodies, a new phone, which is really not new, but new to him, and we gave him money because that's all he really wanted this year. He was really excited. After that my work began, I made the kids breakfast (pancakes) then cleaned up, got myself and the kids ready, my brother Leandro showed up to help me with the afternoon so we all went to Andres' soccer game,( we lost but they played awesome! Then it was off to get the three older ones a haircut (Andres, Mic and Summerlin) haircuts done, off to the store to pick up something for lunch and cake mixes, frosting, drinks, ice, and a number 1 and 3 candle (13). Came home, fed the kids, cleaned up, and started my baking! I made cupcakes galore!! I also made a cake, for the family. Amie (sis-in-law) showed up with her husband Brian and their girls Hailey and April, while they watched Monsters vs aliens I kept baking. Then my parents showed up and my sis Raquel with her boyfriend Danny, and Dave and Mandi with their boys Caleb, Carter, and Holden (baby Kenzie in her tummy) So we had a full house, while I still baked. My cake did not turn out too well, it appears I did not spray the pans enough and so when I took them out of the pan, it broke! But my dad was there to save the day! He fixed it, it was a messy cake but a really yummy cake. So then I started with the cupcakes, thank goodness Amie took my girls to her house to play and took Roman and dropped him off with my mother in law, that way I could focus on what I needed to do, before Andres's friends showed up for the party. Seven came around and kids started to show up. I was still decorating the cupcakes, I made about 50 cupcakes! I had set up a table downstairs with chips and salsa, two halloween buckets full of drinks, and later on when all the guests arrieved I got them pizza, along with some cool music and cool kids, it turned out to be a great party for Andres! I had to laugh because they are teenagers yet every time I went downstairs I caught a few playing with my girls' toys...the Hannah Montana Malibu Beach house was a hit with all of them! Andres had a great day, great party and he got some really cool gifts from his friends and lots of money. He thanked me later on for such a great party, and I felt like a supermom!

Routine, Routine, Routine!!!

Okay, so I'm a fan of routine, you know, having a schedule and planning out your day, but not of what's been going on lately. Lately it consists of going to bed late (my fault) being awaken every night by Roman screaming and screaming, and continuing to scream for about 30 mins, waking up late (again my fault) and part lack of sleep, rushing to get Andres to school on time, coming home to the girls finishing up their shower, helping them get dressed, brushing their hair, remind them to make their bed, and brush their teeth, getting them breakfast, rushing to get the girls to school on time, coming home, trying to get Roman to eat something, in the meantime, he throws food everywhere, makes a big mess on his highchair and himself, then cleaning up the kitchen, by then it's time to get Summerlin picked up from kindergarten (I wish Kindergarten was all day in Davis County) bringing her home, feeding them lunch, of course Roman makes a big mess on himself and the highchair again, so I have to clean the kitchen again, trying to get them to take a nap, Roman screaming, getting into everything he could possibly get into, changing poopy diapers about 4 times in about 6 hours, trying to get a shower in before I have to pick up the kids from school, which sometimes fails, picking up the kids from school, feeding them, cleaning the kitchen again, doing homework, takind them to whatever activity is going on, then coming home feeding them dinner, cleaning the kitchen again, and then doing it all over again the next day! AHHHHH!! I really need to plan better, and I also need to start going to the gym again, right after I drop the girls off at school, that seems to help me feel better throughout the day. Since I got my wisdom teeth pulled and I was recovering for 2 weeks I got so behind on everything and it seems like everyday I get behind even more because I have not had a chance to get caught up. Uhg! Anyway I just needed to blow off some steam, I think I feel I'm off to take a shower......maybe

My baby girl is 8yrs old!!

Micaela turned 8yrs old on September 29th, 2009. We had a fun day, I took Mic and Summerlin to the Miley Cyrus concert that evening. We had a good time together. On Friday I had a party at our house with some of her friends from school and from church. Rick made her cake, it was awesome. I made Halloween shaped sugar cookies, and halloween color frosting and had the girls decorate cookies. I got a pinata, filled it with tons of candy, so the kids made out with a bag full by the end. She got some fun stuff as gifts from friends and family. After everyone went home, we celebrated with my family at my parent's house. We finished the four layer cake that Rick made. Now we are looking forward to her Baptism which will be on Halloween day in the morning. We have a gorgeous dress for her, my brother took some amazing pictures of her with her dress, I ordered her Baptism invites and we are going to be sending them out soon. Im really excited, and so proud of her.
