Happy Birthday Baby Girl!!!

Wow I can't believe that she is now 6! It seems like just yesterday I was holding this beautiful dark haired baby girl in my arms. The day she was born my room was filled with family, we laughed, I cried in pain, laughed some more and then the doctor who was probably just the funniest shone the light on me and said in his Bad Detective voice "Dolores Where were you exactly nine months ago" LOL we were hysterical laughing. Elisa has been such a blessing in so many ways, she just lights you up. Thank you Lord for giving me our family this precious little gift. Here she is Elisa photo from today layouts from 5 mos. to age 5 Thanks for looking

Don't be late!

Yes that is going to be the theme for Elisa's 6 Birthday, I have decided that she would have a Tea Party theme for her Birthday. As a child I loved Alice in Wonderland, my favorite part of the movie is when the Rabbit runs around yelling I'm Late, I'm Late. Well Elisa loves the modern version of Alice in Wonderland and I thought hey why not? The inside of the invite will read a little like this " You are cordially invited to Elisa's 6th Birthday it will be a Tea Party late afternoon Lunch. Please come dressed in your Finest Tea Party Attire. I got that idea from Tea Parties for kids loved it. I might change it up a bit, but I will definitely show you the final outcome. I used my Cricut imagine using the Cricut cake Birthday Cartridge. Can you say Perfect.  Thanks for looking!

Happy New Year!!!

I am so excited to bring in this new year, it was quite we went to IHOP for Brunch with the kids then to the movies to see Narnia's next Chronicle. I loved the movie if you haven't watched it yet it really is a must see movie.  Now lets talk about 2010 and how happy I am it's over, it was a year of so much emotional stress, hard decisions but it was also a year of growth. I will share with you all tomorrow a layout I created for with my hope and desires  for the New Year. In the meantime do you all remember in October I made the decision to join a Gym, got a personal trainer well I haven't really shared about my weight loss progress. I have lost a total of 12 pounds so far, I have lost inches beyond belief and most of all I have gone from a size 12 really close to 14 to a size 10 loose now. I think in the next two weeks I might be a size 8. Cool huh! Here are my before and after pics you can visibly see the weight loss. In so many ways I felt as though I was dying not physically, but emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, then I made the physical decision to live. Yes live, I got out of my rut and began not only going to the gym so that physically I could be healthy I also made a decision to go back to God for my emotional, mental and spiritual state. Am I still struggling, YES but it's a little easier when you have faith that God is in control. thanks for reading, chat with you tomorrow!!!
