Uncle Michael....

This Thanksgiving my brother Michael came to Texas for a visit. Aida just loves him and he is excellent at playing with her. Here are some pictures of the fun we had trying to get Aida to pose for a picture with him in front of the Christmas tree.

My camera was acting up that day -- actually it was operator error but Alex read the instruction manual and miraculously he fixed it! I of course have been using the camera for over 2 years now and didn't even know where the manual was -- nor did I care really. Thankfully my husband to the rescue. However, this picture is super cute. My brother was trying to get Aida on his shoulders and this is how it started out ---that is her hanging upside down!
More to come with our Holiday fun!

What I am Thankful For....

I have so many things to be thankful for...I am blessed really. I am most thankful for my family. My beautiful daughter and loving husband. I cant think of any better gift or opportunity that I have ever been given than being a mom. Even when it is hard and I stink at it, I have never wanted to trade one second of being a mom for not being one.

I am also thankful that Aida loves school. Today, Alex and my brother Michael and I all went to Aida's school for their thanksgiving celebration. All of the little ones in her class had a Thanksgiving lunch. Here are some pictures of Aida having a wonderful time and really enjoying her lunch. When we got in the car after the party Aida looked at me and said "I happy Mommy." I knew she was and I was so thrilled to hear her say that for so many reasons. I am happy too :)

My camera is acting up right now so forgive this dark picture. Here she is sitting at her table and enjoying her lunch.

Aida and Ms. Jessica. This is Aida's favorite teacher ---mommy's favorite too!

Here she is sitting at the head of the table. Enjoying her lunch and totally at peace. She was such a good girl today.

Eating like a big girl!

The three of us!
Enjoying her cupcake....Grandma made these for the party. They were a big hit.

Today was a big day and a great day...Happy Thanksgiving!!!
