Santiago turns 7

Santiago woke up on his birthday to his room decorated in ribbons and his doorway tied off with streamers!

His daddy woke up early and made him his favorite breakfast before school - potato and egg tacos! Liliana and mommy brought him his favorite lunch of Chickfila with a colossal cupcake, a birthday hat and a balloon at school.

And for dinner we went out to Mi Rancho for one of his favorite dinners - cheese enchiladas.

They put a sombrero on his head, whip cream and a cherry on his nose and sang to him at the restaurant. He said it was the "best thing ever!"

Two days later we had a his birthday party at the skating rink with his friends from his soccer team and school. It was a blast! We did a Minecraft theme - he's very interested in minecraft everything lately!

-Likes tummy time and can lift her upper body up pretty well

CGS MDO Thanksgiving

We celebrated a Charlie Brown potluck lunch at Christ the Good Shepherd yesterday with Sophia and Gabriel. As always it's nice to see the parents and kids and teachers come together to celebrate all the things we are thankful for. I'm definitely thankful for the teachers who help guide and teach my kids here at church. They are preparing them for elementary school and molding their caring hearts each day.

Nana was able to come with me to have lunch with the kids this year.
