As with every year 2016 gave us many surprises and much growth.
January Carlos turned 3 & we celebrated in San Jose at the Children’s Museum with an old friend of mine & Carlos’ Nina.
February I celebrated turning 31 at Disneyland with Victor. Thank you Victor for the fun & the memories & thank you Mom for watching the kids!
Victor started a new job for the county in March & we are all very proud of him
After my birthday trip I decided to change my life and have been on a weight loss / healthy life plan that will continue into the new year.
Carlos started gymnastics in March
Emery had a Disney themed birthday party at home, with her kinder friends from school
Emery & Carlos loved being over at Grandma Yvette’s this summer for swimming. Carlos got braved this year and learned to jump in, sometimes before mommy could get to the side to grab him, but that brave boy jumped in with his life jacket (in the shallow end) & would pop up out of the water so happy. & I would panic about it every time.
Victor celebrated his 13th birthday with a family road trip. It was the longest we have went on & we traveled 3 states. All the kids were 100% perfect! Not one complaint from Mommy or Daddy. Now we are looking into more road trips in the future.
The Hoover Dam
The Grand Canyon
Historic Route 66
Victor started 8th grade & Emery started 1st grade
I continued volunteering at Emery’s school
Emery has decided not to further her gymnastics & wants to try Ballet or Hip Hop Dancing in 2017
Carlos has decided to grow his hair out. He says he wants it cut on his birthday but as that day approaches it doesn’t seem likely. Mommy & Daddy love his long hair.
After trick – or – treating so not everyone is in full costume. Aunty Serenity & Aunty Destiny stopped by to have some treats with us.
Emery as Hermone Granger from Harry Potter
& for some reason I have no photos of Carlos as a Tiger but this one of him at gym daycare. He wanted to be a Tiger to scare him friends
Spent the day at Great Grandma Mary & Great Papa Joe’s house
