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.

Dad's 50th Birthday Fiesta!

So the long awaited Fiesta was a HUGE success. My Mom and I are great planners if I do say so myself. And my Dad enjoyed himself to no end and that was the whole point.

But instead of me babbling on and on... I will just show you:

My sister and I getting all dolled up

My sister-in-law's Mom was a cake genius once again! Now you know why we use her over and over to make ALL our cakes. Very "on theme"... what's more Mexican than a Sombrero?

My Daddy and his little Mexican Granddaughters...

My Mom hired a Charro to sing for a few hours. He was a good singer, he was funny, he acted well, and everyone liked him.

We had my Dad's favorite food in mind when we hired someone to make us a taquiza... Mmm the tacos were delish! As you can see the line was long for over an hour...

And what made it even better was all the people who made it out. Family, friends from the Harley Club, friends from the Mustang Club, old friends, work friends... My Dad is very loved.

I loved seeing people we haven't seen in a long time! My Mom's friend Madline is crazy, and funny, and one of the best people!

Here I am with my Parentals... Dashing aren't they?

Here I am with my sister... And I'm not fat... I'm pregnant.

And of course the love of my life... who decorated and worked his butt off helping us set up for the party. He's amazing.

We did a surprise dance for my Dad who had NO idea that we had that up our sleeves. A few of the women and girls in our family got together and we learned a simpler version of a "florklorico" dance... with 2 of us prego and three 8 year olds we needed to at least look good. (When I get a hold of the video I will post it as well) Thanks Tia Chely for teaching us all the routine!

My Dad's family. Mom. Sisters. Brother.

Diego got an opportunity to get a dance with Grandpa

The drunkos singing "Happy Birthday"... okay so maybe my Dad was the only drunk one... but at least he's the only one that held his liquor the whole night! Funny cuz my Dad's not a huge drinker.

What can I say... We're Camera Hogs... We can't help it when good looks run in the family...
Oh sisters...

Some Noriega clan

Some Melo Clan

And what Fiesta is complete without Pinatas?!

It was a looooong night. But a great one!

RE: Teaching you all the Jarabe Tapatio - Your are welcome! It was a lot of fun<3
