Paloma turns 3……

Oh my….we have had quite the birthday!!!  Paloma is officially 3 years old….

I had to ZOOOOM home to be there for the GRAND party…..(thank you, Jesus, for letting me miss the Chuck E. Cheese part earlier in the day)

And thank you, Delta, for being a VERY BIG PART of my delay…..anywho….back to the party…

There is mama (Becky).. and the girls…

Erin and Papi…

(Papi is too busy for kisses)…

Presents, cake and swimming!!!

EVERYBODY loves to swim with daddy (Chris)!!!!!

I’m so glad she finally turned three……

Two?       It’s SOOOO yesterday….

the swim meet…

Oh boy!!!  We’ve got a swimmer, people!  Yesterday was Sofia’s first swim meet….just one day after her 6th birthday!!

Boy, this was going to be the thrill of my day!  We got to the pool early (because we are grandparents and that’s what we live for) and tried to figure out the best seat…..finally deciding to stand..

First came the relay…but wait!  They need a timer!  Someone that can be fair and balanced….

Well, hello there Papi!!!!  You’ll make an awesome timer…..(remember, she’s in the pink swim cap)

So, they gathered for their team cheer…

And waited for their turn!!  Nani was so excited to see her ANGEL getting ready!!!

And she’s off!!!  Lane one!!  GO, SOFIA, GO!!!!

GETTING CLOSER!!!

WOO HOOOOOO!!!!  She made it! ♥♥♥♥ AND she got a ribbon!  (by the way, when she got out of the pool, she was awarded the BLACK ribbon that said, SEVENTH PLACE!  And she ran to me to tell me that she was so happy because (and I am quoting)  “Nani, black 7th means FIRST place!”  Of course I had to be happy with her…. (as I tried to do the math in my head)….

Later came a GREEN ribbon that said SIXTH PLACE, and finally another BLACK ribbon….which was 7th/1st place….however you want to look at it.

All I know is that Nani and Papi couldn’t have been prouder!!  And, yes, this little one wanted to jump in the pool……

All in all….there was sweet victory!  She did AWESOME for a little girl that started two weeks ago!  We are looking forward to many, many more victories!!!!  Nani and Papi are SOOO BLESSED!!!♥

cinderella wears Ugg Boots…

God was gracious to me today and let me skip a horrible headache.  He knew that PJ was coming and in His infinite wisdom…gave me relief.

She immediately came in and got to work in the ‘kitchen’. There was so much sorting and touching to do…

Everything she picked up was prefaced with, “SEE!”  Yes, I see.  (You have to answer or the question will be repeated forever x 3).

I actually thought that we would have a little time of quiet and reading….but this book was thrown to the ground and forgotten.  Next was Bugs.  And each time she would touch one…she would say, “EEEWWWWW!!!”  Yes, even the neighbors got to hear her, I’m sure.

Yes, if you look reeeeal close and listen reeeeeal hard, you can actually hear her squealing!

Next came lunch and a ride to the store.   By the way…. did you know that Cinderella wears Ugg Boots?  Well…..now you know.
