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.

A Quarter of a Century

It's my 25th birthday!!! Yay!

I went to sleep at 7:30pm last night (can you believe that?) and slept until 6:50am when I was woken up by my Mom and 3 kiddos singing the "Happy Birthday" song. It's been a tradition in my family since we were tiny that we all gather in the morning and sing to the birthday person. So it's cute that my kids are following the same tradition we always have. Even Arielle muttered happy birthday after she heard the other 2 a few times. It was shocking and adorable. Of course the rest of the day she hasn't repeated it. But how perfect was that? It was so clear too.

And Diego presented me with this:

And he said, "Mom I was gonna make you eggs, and cereal, and orange juice on like a tray thing..." and I say, "Like breakfast in bed?" and he says, "... yeah but I have to go to school." Haha! Well it's the thought that counts right!

All the kids could talk about at the bus stop this morning was what kind of party I was having. Alayna insisted on Princess. So funny.

So after we get Diego on the bus... Jr calls me and asks if I want to go quading today. I was impressed... he never has anything remotely planned for my birthday and even though it was mostly fun for the guys... I just wanted to get out of the house. We had a blast. I rode around on the trails with Jr... No hills for me... boo! And we took Diego out of school early along with a lot of the other kids. They were happy to get out a couple hours early. Good thing Diego only has lunch and his specials (PE, Music, Art) in the afternoon. And all his important subjects are in the morning. Jr bought me my choice lunch and I chose Chipotle. It was so good. We spent all day out there. It was great.

It took all of 2 seconds after arriving for the kids to practically roll in the dirt and become dirty...

And my kids (all 3) love riding. None of them are scared at all.

But then the older guys played alone for a while so that they could be crazy

Okay so maybe Loyiel is just crazy...

And that makes Alayna sad when she can't have a turn every time. She's an absolute Drama Queen!

And then at towards the end of the day I got my ride. I am always pregnant when we go (in the last 5 years only 1 time I haven't been) so I never get a full ride. But hey it was fun anyway!

And Arielle got her first ride and she LOVED it! She cried and cried when we had to leave and she had to get off. She yelled "weeee" the entire time riding.

After that we came home... everyone showered.

And my Dad and the kiddos decided to bake me a cake. It was funny how Diego was trying to keep it a secret from me. I had to pretend like I knew nothing about it. It was so good... chocolate cake. My favorite.

(P.S. Don't mind my looks I am sunburned, TIRED, and had just gotten out of the shower)

So all in all one of my BEST birthdays ever!

Thank you Daddy for the cake! Thanks Mom for serenading me in the morning. And thanks to everyone who went quading with us (Nichole, Loyiel, Chris, and Franklin) who made my day fun and special!
