BetTeR...Ya EsTamOS MeJoR

We are better now. We were all very sick with the swine flu. Gael, Emili and I all had very high fevers and lots of other fun stuff. Gael also had a nasty case of the baby measles. Not fun.... so after being cooped up for more than a week and now that we are feeling better, off to the museum we went. Emili was very happy to see her friend and have a good time. Gael found a little girl to play with too. We had a good time. Feels good to feel good again. Thanks to everyone for helping us out when we were sick.

bridge from juarez mexico to el paso- the border

Yep-So i wrote about it last year and I am writing about it again. Damn corn is high...that starts, changes happen...weird weather, people get older, things happen, time passes and in a little while we will be waiting for the damn corn to get high again...grrrrrrrrrr.

Lots of changes since the corn last year... I think that we have adjusted well. Gael was born. Megan moved to Florida. Emili lost LOTS of weight! We moved. Went to Mexico. We had some family vacations. Juan got his permanent residency. Juan moved back in with us. Juan got a job, bought a car. Gael got teeth, learned to crawl and stand up. Emili lost teeth, grew 4 shoe sizes, shed more than 30 lbs, grew 2 feet, learned more Spanish. Emili is turning 9 and started 3 grade this week. Emili made it into 4th level at swim lessons and is becoming a beautiful young woman. I lost about 70 lbs!! Lots of change. .... We are adjusting well.

Here are some pics from last years corn to now. Hope that next years corn brings many changes again.........

LiFe iS gOoD....PuRa ViDa

We are back from Mexico and still busy. I was looking forward to coming back from Mexico and relaxing, but oh well... life is good. Here is some of what we have been doing..

Emili hung out by grandmas and had a great time while we were in Juarez and Monterrey Mexico. She had a great time and of course got spoiled rotten by her grandparents. She has been having fun at daycare since we got back. She has gone everywhere imaginable and done lots of fun things. She went to the Milwaukee Museum and the Windhover Center and learned how to make robots. She has also been adjusting very well to having 11/2 men ( one very little one) in the house now. She is looking forward to cave exploring and going to the planetarium. Lots of fun to be had.
Gael is loving having his Daddy around and according to Emili "is spoiled rotten." He has been having a lot of trouble with ear infections and has had his 6th one recently. Not sleeping...He is having surgery on Tues to put tubes in his ears and hopefully control them somewhat. He is almost crawling and can get around pretty good. He got two teeth last week and has now decided that he is too good for baby food. More to come on how the surgery goes.

Juan received his permanent residency and we got the card in the mail this week. Ya!! It was all worth it. He started work last Friday already and looking forward to his first real paycheck... wait till he sees how much GOOD OLD UNCLE SAM takes..Lol.

Me on the other hand is good, even though i was a victim of identity fraud this week... long story... working hard enjoying life.... loving it.
