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.

Memorial Weekend

An altogether relaxing enjoyable weekend...

Friday we hung around the house doing absolutely nothing :)

My sister got a water slide and I think the kids had a blast!

Sunday was another hang out and do nothing day. But we did clean the entire house. And got a lot of laundry done. I enlisted the kids to help and it went smoothly for once!

And then yesterday the kids watched movies in the morning while I worked. And then we got ready and spent the whole afternoon with my Daddy-O. We had lunch at Peter Piper which the kids LOVED.

It was fun to sit and talk with my Dad for hours and hang out back at home with him. Thanks Daddy!

Low-key Sunday

Today my sister in law invited me to a family reunion of sorts on her Mom's side of the family. It was at one of my favorite parks where they have a splash pad for the kids to get wet. So given the option I thought, "Laundry? Or take 5 kids out for the day and drain their energy?" Well who really needs clean clothes anyway right?

So after laying in bed watching TV until oh about Noonish... I fed the kids, packed up, and dressed them and we headed over.

Oh but not before I threatened that whoever didn't help clean the whole upstairs (we've had my nephew Ducky since Friday and they love to destroy the rooms and bathroom and hallway) would NOT be going with me to the splash park. Well that upstairs sparkled in about 45 mins!

At the park they had a great time like always...

Arielle loved it!

Even Atalie got in the water. She was a little afraid but didn't make a big deal... but didn't last a long time in there either.

They also blew bubbles and played on the playground.

Atalie was content being right next to Mama!

And then it was time to go... exhausted and hungry.

These are my kids, minus the baby, and yes... Duck is half mine now... I think I need child support since I have him all the time :P

Lots Happening Once Again

So been gone a while again. I get busy what can I say? I am making myself blog more though. I hate that I am not keeping track of my memories!

So what have we been up to... well a lot and nothing much all at the same time. Haha!

Atalie has continued to be my little sunshine. She makes me so happy and I love spending time with her everyday just being silly. She loves to be silly!

Baseball gives us something to do 2 evenings a week. Diego is enjoying it and the girls love being outside running around for a while.

Cinco de Mayo, Jr and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary. I love that man!He took me out for dinner with his co-workers and then to the movies to watch Fast Five!

And Alayna and Atalie were festive for the occassion. I made Alayna Mexican hairbows and the dress that Tal was wearing has gone through all of my girls. My Mom bought it for Alayna when we went on our cruise in 2006 in Mexico.

After a few weeks of practice Diego had his first game. So much fun! I of course made myself a Dbacks bow and wore it as we cheered him on.

Tal likes hanging out with me in the wrap as we watch the game...

Diego and his best friend Detrick... best buds since Kindergarten!

We went to my good friend's daughter's birthday party. Ally turned 9!

This is me and her little brother, my best friend, Jimmy!

There was a waterslide and the kids ended up filthy... okay maybe not all of them but my nephews sure did!

It was a good time!!

My sister in law Jen and her Mom Linda (who does all my cakes) made Ally's Monster High cake. I loved it!

And this week we moved into a house. I cleaned and unpacked while the boys did all the dirty work... like knocking down walls!

Everyone is enjoying our new home. It has much more space!

But when your tvs aren't hooked up yet and you need to work from home... you find clever ways to entertain the children. Yup movies on my computer did the trick!

My dad came to see the house... and found a place to sleep...

As Did Arielle...

Tal spends time with the boys

And the kids have a huge yard now to run around in... so they decided to get wet!

And I will leave you with a little song... The girls favorite new game is to use the stairs as their stage and sing songs all day long. I gave them a microphone and I get full blown concerts now.
