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.

Nichole's Portfolio Review

My sister Nichole has been going to the Art Institute of Phoenix for almost 4 years now. And after all that she's finally done and has graduated with her bachelors degree in graphic design. Pretty nifty eh? Yup that's how we roll... we like to accomplish. So even though she won't have her formal graduation ceremony until September... she is officially done and had her portfolio review at the Phoenix Art Museum.

Well I'd never been there so I thought that was cool. She set up her portfolio along with some boards displaying her work. Not only was this her last review for school BUT potential employers can find people to work for their companies through this. So that is awesome!

So here's some pics: (Sorry about the quality... I forgot my memory card for my camera and I used my sister-in-law's point and shoot with no flash, as it wasn't allowed in the museum.)

Nichole standing by her booth...

She even had her own bodyguard... LOL

And these are her boards and stuff:

(I helped her make these little "leave behinds" which had exacto knife blades in them. Hence the sign. Graphic Design students go through a plethora of exacto blades!)

Me and My Sister

We also got free admission into the museum so we decided to look around while we were there...

This is Jen and I keeping it Gangsta!

Loyiel couldn't decide what it was?!

Don't mind us... we were pretending we were in some sort of matrix.

All in all we came to the conclusion that the museum is full of mostly crap... some things were cool... but most of it we could make ourselves. I don't get museums.

This was the BEST piece of art... a Grandpa and all 7 of his Grandkids!

Then Nichole was given her certificate

And then it was over... and we left to Peter Piper to celebrate... and feast at the buffet! Yummy!

Congratulations Nichole! You made us proud!
Now you can do all our Graphic Design work for free... Bwahahaha!
