The Queen: Michelle

The Queen: Michelle
I am 28 years old. Still a princess but the queen of my family. Spoiled beyond belief. Lucky and truely blessed. A lover. A crafter. A mother. A wife. A friend. This is me.

My King: Junior

My King: Junior
The LOVE of my life! He completes me and balances me out in every way. He's a workaholic. He's loud, blunt, and crazy. He drinks Monsters like his life depends on it. Above all he is the greatest Daddy I could ever ask for, for my children. And he treats me like his Queen (and he calls me that too).

The Model Child: Diego Ray

The Model Child: Diego Ray
9 years old. My only boy. He is the epitome of the perfect child. He is so responsible and independent. Wise beyond his years. He is laughter, he is love, he is compassion, he is simply amazing. He keeps me grounded and reminds me always that I am beautiful. He is a natural born leader and takes care of the household and family better than me!

The Diva: Alayna Danae

The Diva: Alayna Danae
7 years old. She is drama. My fashionista for sure with a style all her own. Sensitive and loving when she wants to be. Thumbsucker. My biggest headache because she is the most like me. She is the only one who can cause me to become uncontrollably angry. She loves to dance. She loves to model. My bookworm and most academic.

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace
4 years old. This one is something else. She is pure comedy. Never a dull moment with her crazy antics. She is also the crybaby. She does things her own way. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to be cute to get it. My Disney loving pal. So girly. Her favorite color is pink. Loves Rapunzel. Will wear a dress every single day. Can't leave the house without a bow in her hair. She refuses.

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle
2 years old. My sweet baby. She loves her Mommy above all else. She is a cuddlebug for sure. The calmest most well behaved baby ever! But she has TONS of energy. She is so small and petite. She loves to sing and dance. She so SO ready for ballet and has yet to even step foot in a class. She loves Minnie Mouse and watching Disney Jr. She is hilarious and talks way too much.

My Little Man is Six!!!

Friday was Diego's birthday... He's 6 years old now! I cannot believe it. I guess I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't lived it. My baby is old. That makes me old. Who woulda known I'd be 24 years old and have a six year old. Aren't most 24 year olds just out of College? Wait maybe that's 22. Either way I feel old. I don't feel 24... I feel 30.

But this post isn't about me...

it's about a small boy who turned 6.

Friday was his actual birthday and my cousin Rebecca (and her boyfriend) made the trip from California out here to surprise him. You see Diego and Becca are best friends. At least that's what Diego tells me all the time. He didn't know she was coming. So in the morning I had promised him that I would take cupcakes to his class to celebrate. And when I dropped him off at school I told him... "Diego, one more thing, when I bring your cupcakes in the afternoon... I have another surprise for you." So as planned I get there to take his cupcakes. Only he was slightly confused when I didn't walk in with them in hand. So I open up his classroom door and in walk Becca with the cupcakes. It took him a few seconds to process what just happened but he ran up to her and gave her the happiest hug ever and looked like he was going to cry! My heart just melted. He was genuinely so happy to see her and overcome with emotion that he almost cried. But he pulled himself together enough to pass out his cupcakes and be serenaded by his classmates singing "Happy Birthday".

The rest of the day was spent eating junk food, answering birthday phone calls, and paying Rockband.

On Saturday, we threw him a pirate themed birthday party and invited al of his friends from school. Everyone showed up! We had a total of 30 kids including cousins. It was quite exhausting for me who had went to sleep late the night before... and ran around all morning. But he had tons of fun so it was worth it.

But now I have Arielle's First Birthday Party on Sunday.
This Mama never stops when it comes to her kids.


This amazing cake was made by my SIL Jennifer's Mom. She makes the most delicious cakes (and I don't eat cake) and comes up with the best designs! I just told her our theme and let her do her work... isn't she amazing?!

Arielle got to spend a lot of time with her Nina Becca over the weekend. And although she won't be here for her goddaughter's birthday party... she did bring gifts that we can't wait to open! The boxes are from the Disney store... so one could only wonder!
