Around...


Well, it seems that Spring is definitely HERE. Mornings are cool and crisp, days are hot as all get out, and our evening are rather enjoyable. Today I began the process to go back to school... as in college. Again. Gotta transfer whatever credits I can, try and get that scholarship I was awarded back in 2000 and apply for as many scholarship and grants to supplement.

It's gonna be a stressful couple of months while I try and get this under control, but I would like to think that the reward will be greater. Let's hope I finish this degree(s) by my 30th birthday. I won't tell you when that is, cause I'll be turning 25 for the next TEN years. Ha!

Things are good. We are blessed... ☺

How to PROPERLY eat a Duvalin...

First you make sure you look MIGHTY CUTE...
Whatever you do, DO NOT remove that leftover frosting from the donut you ate this morning...

Next, dive into your Duvalin with your plastic little spoon/spatula/whatever it is...

Smack your lips and make sure you get all that yummy goodness.

You need to get a proper mixing motion going on with your spatula. This makes for more robust flavors.


Bring the spoon back to your lips and repeat until it's ALL GONE.

Dr. Seuss Reading Extravanganza

Dr. Seuss' Birthday was celebrated earlier this month across America. In the children's school they had a whole week dedicated towards literature closed with a Reading Extravaganza with guests reading to the children. The whole community was invited for birthday cake and partake in the festivities.

State Representative Aaron Peña read Green Eggs and Ham to a cafeteria full of kiddos. We were in the audience too and I managed to get a couple pics of that.





Evelyn saw that I was taking pictures and proclaimed herself to be the subject of my photos with a loud "CHEESE!" - enough to make the whole cafeteria turn and look at her while I snapped the picture. Oy. notice the cake crumbs on her face...


My son's class decided on the book Giraffes Can't Dance as the one to portray and they all wore little giraffe crowns/hats. It was rather adorable.


I really enjoyed participating in this event with them. I hope next year is just as fun.

Happy 2nd Birthday EVELYN!

Evelyn turned TWO!

TWO!

Wow... Can you believe it?!

Let's take a photographic trip down memory lane....

Here she is as a wee newborn...

A few months old...

Silly girl!

About a year old...


Here she is NOT getting her way...


With freshly trimmed bangs. Too bad her momma isn't a hair stylist.

At her ladybug party, collecting loot from the piñata.
