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.

The Hardest Day of My Entire Life

And I say this because the day she died was hard. But not compared to today. Today is the day we laid her body to rest. And now it's the day we have to figure out how in the world we are going to go on without her. We now have to step up and fill those shoes... high heel shoes might I add... and continue on with what she's taught us. It's so hard because we literally came to her for EVERYTHING! What I was gonna wear, money, the kids, how to cook things for dinner, emotional issues, marital issues, friendship issues, pretty much everything you could think of. Now I'll have to ask myself... what would my Mom tell me... and hope I can find the right answer. I have to now become my own person.

The funeral was beautiful and afterward everyone came over to eat food catered by Buca de Beppo on behalf of Cox Communications. Here's some pictures of the rest of our day:

We miss you Mama!

Then another photoshoot inside at night

The Noriega clan and then some...

Daddy, Willie, and I: For those of you wondering... Willie IS family! He slept on my aunt and uncles couch some 20 years ago and never left. He keeps coming back and my Mom loved when he'd fly in on Thanksgiving day to just to spend it with us! He's our Mexicanese cousin okay... just leave it at that.

Mario, Daddy, Me

Daddy, Me, Cecy

My Mom always joked that everyone needed a Junior in their life. So I guess we have a transfer of ownership now... Kika!

Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger generation.  For they are us, our bodies are only wilted leaves on the tree of life. - Albert Einstein

Tia Sylvia is in a better, more serene place where there is a bit more time and few more gentlier words. Love You Tia Sylvia Forever and Forevermore!!!
