I have my eyes on you

Today I remembered that a while ago I bought  some googly eyes. I showed them to Kelsey and the first thing she did was to open her eyes really big and gave me a smile.
I draw the 'templates' and helped her adding the eyes...

She added the final touches and made it hers.

When we finished the first one she said: "How about tio Tony, tia Palola..." and here we have them...

and tio Deivis, tia Nadia...

Our family made by Salma.

This one is completely made by Kelsey. She glued it, draw it and colored herself.

The Morales by Salmita.

Los Abuelitos by Salmita.

When we were finished Daddy came back from work and had fun with the googly eyes. They laughed a lot... they even tried it themselves, but not for long enough to take a picture of them.

day off

we woke up to see this. honestly, we were not expecting it at all. total surprise to our eyes. but after all the snow we have gotten before, four inches meant nothing. the girls were happy to play with it on the day off.

happy 40

cuando solo eramos Felipe y yo, el siempre me cantaba Las Mananitas la noche anterior o temprano en la manana de mi cumple. Luego se hizo tradicion y yo tambien lo hacia.
Ahora que tenemos a nuestras bebes lo seguimos haciendo y cantamos a quien le toque. Pero hoy muy feliz ya que Salmita me acompano a cantarle a papi las mananitas. Mi nina orgullosamente cantaba la cancion que habia aprendido el verano pasado. Hooray!

Ya para la noche no podia faltar el cantarle a papi Happy Birthday acompanado por un rico cake que le preparamos.

aqui ellas emocionadas por su papi... pero sobre todo porque habia cake que comer... no me dejaban tranquila ni un momento... apenas vieron que tenia los ingredientes en la cocina me rondaban a cada rato para ver si ya lo iba a preparar... luego cuando les llegaba el olor del cake horneando venian a preguntar si ya estaba listo...

No perdieron ni un momento despues de cantarle a papi y a buscar tenedores para empezar a comer.

Bartolo... nunca olvides lo mucho que te amamos y lo importante que eres para nosotras. Feliz 40 y que Dios te colme de mucha salud.


Happy 40th birthday my sweet lovely husband.

she is doing much better... still has to finish her medicine...

On the other hand, Little Kelsey started to get sick yesterday (oh boy how much drama) not quite the same virus as Salma has. She only needs to take medicine if she gets a fever.

all about me poster

As predicted we did not have school today. Not too much fun in the morning since we had an icestorm... lots of ice to shovel.
Anyway... we have been working on this poster for the past two days.
She is the Student of the Month... which she is so proud about.
Also, she brought a Certificate of outstanding achievement for the month... Hooray for Salma...

The poster says:

Some things I like:: cooking, baking, reading, princesses, and arts and crafts.
Some things I don't like:: alligators, corn, peas, and crocodiles.
When I grow I would like to be:: An Engineer.

Today, She stayed home with her sister.

Isn't it nice to have a day-off in the middle of the week?
Crossing my finger for tomorrow. I would rather make up for the snow-day during June than working on a day like they say tomorrow would be.
