Starbucks Moments

Tessa and Sienna are bonding over chocolate milk at Starbucks. It is their favorite drink. I wonder if they are chatting about their Mommy:).

Sienna is our lioness. Every morning her hair is extremely huge. There are times where you can not even see her face because her hair is all over the place. When it bugs her she will come over and say, "Mommy, hair!" and fling it up in distress.

Road Trip Home

It was a long weekend and we were able to visit my cousin Matina and my Godmother Les in San Mateo. We had a long trip home because we had to stop a few times to let the girls run around and burn some energy. Sienna was pooped.

Tessa's Birthday!!!!

Tessa is 3 years old today. I can not believe how fast time has gone by. She is such a big girl and surprising us at every turn. Today her Nino graduated from Cal State Sacramento and we were there celebrating. There was a jumpy and she took every advantage to have fun. She was int he jumper for at least a few hours, stopping only when she had to eat and use the bathroom. This picture is her and her sister having a good time with their Daddy.

Road trip

We are on our way to Sacramento. It was an early start. We got up at 4:30 am and were on the road by 5:30 am. The girls were a bit drowsy but slept in the car after we got moving. Sienna loves to read so I caught her reading a book as we were driving.

Bug Fair

We went to the Bug Fair today in LA at the Natural History Museum. Tessa was all over it. She touched a scorpion and also a water bug. She also let a creepy crawly thing crawl up her arm. We spent the day with Grandpa and Tessa loved watching the bees.

Sleeping Angels

It was a rough day today. The girls didn't want to go down for their naps. They fought it until late this afternoon when their energy was out. They both fell asleep on our bed and took a break. I too got a chance to take a nap too.

Mother's Day

My girls gave me a beautiful gift that they made. It was their tiny hand prints on a tile that was decorated. It was the cutest thing. My girls love crafts and they were busy today painting with their cousin Alma. I am blessed to be a Mother.

Visiting Daddy

Today Andres had his Mother's Day session at Twinkle Twinkle Little Store. It was a slow morning for him. So the girls and I decided to take him to lunch since he was gone all day. We went to Rubio's and had a picnic at the park. It was alot of fun and we got to spend time with him and encourage him that the afternoon would be better.

Tessa the photographer

Tessa is a photographer. When we go on walks she takes her camera with her so she can document life. She is following in her Daddy's footsteps.
