Christmas Chairs

1/22: Our Christmas 2010 was challenging as we were not home and faced the passing of my "Abuelita". Once we came home, getting back to routine was hard and rough. It has already been a trying year! My amazing in-laws had sent the Peas Christmas $. We had chosen to buy cozy and elegant chairs for them. Thankfully, we bought them early and they had been sitting in the garage. We finally were able to unpack their chairs!! Thanks Mom and Dad Walter! The Peas absolutely loved their chairs!! The rest of the Christmas $ was put in their college funds!As usual, Matthew is always front and center helping DAD!!

Snack Thief

1/22: When snacks disappear at our house, I blame Rob! Well, I think we have new culprits!! I caught the boys red handed with a bag of Doritos! As you can see they were surprised and were hiding under the table!!

Daddy Goes To Texas

1/15: Daddy got a TRUCK!! This is Rob's retirement/birthday/Christmas present!! He bought it in Texas while we were there but could not bring it back. So, he had to fly there to be able to drive it back! While in Texas, Rob was able to go visit with Aunt Ginger and family! She sent Christmas presents for the Peas! The Peas LOVE to open presents!!

For the last few days, Emily has wanted a pony tail on top of her head. This is a tribute to ALE!!

Texas PART IV, Christmas

12/24: Grandma Mina's funeral was 2 days ago. Needless to say, Christmas was not on everybody's mind. In fact, the turkey was forgotten and we ended up having to shop today for pork loins instead for Christmas Eve dinner! Dinner turned out fabulous and the most important thing, we were all together! It really was not what Rob and I had planned either. We had planned on being home and starting our family traditions. Well, there is always next year!
