Pic overload...but all very necessary!

A couple weeks back I had the privilege of doing a photo shoot with two very adorable little boys. People, meet Jacob (my godson), and Luis David (his little cousin). These cuties are one month apart (Jacob is the oldest...ehem). My Best friend in the whole wide world (I'm going to post just on her one day...Love you Emily) and her cousin asked me to take photos of their kids. Emily is originally from Venezuela. She is very close to all her aunts, uncles, and cousins, however they ALL live in Venezuela. Whenever family comes down, it's like a holiday for them. I share their joy because I see, hear, and feel the love they all have for each other. So anyways, these proud mommies wanted some pics so the family could drool over their cuteness (here and in Venezuela). I had so much fun taking their pictures, they're naturals.

Stay photography blog will be coming soon ;)

Niña de tus ojos

Okay, for all you non-spanish speaking people out there, the title for todays post means "Apple of your Eyes" in spanish. This is the title of the song that my baby girl danced to this past sunday in our church. In our church we have a girls ministry that's called Missionette's (actually, the name has recently changed to National Girls Ministries). Its a discipleship program for preschool through high school girls. I love this program. It makes learning biblical principles fun and motivating for the girls. It truly is awesome. So anyways, starting this past Sunday we've been celebrating "Girls Ministries week". The service was great! We started off with praise and worship (which I'm very proud to say that my DH leads) and then the word was presented in form of a play which also involved some songs and dances. One of those dances was done by my beautiful princess and her cousin Evelyn. They did such a great job. I was so proud of them (Great job Princess Evelyn). Miss Evelyn and Alyssa love to dance! My baby girl is only 4, and she had me a little worried. She was suppose to be practicing at home but everytime it was time to practice with me she was tired, hungry, and/or sleepy. It was so frustrating. But when it was time to practice with Jessica (choreographer)...forget it! She was all for it. So, I must say...I was so touched by their dance. The song is one of our (Irv, Alyssa, and mine) favorites so it made it even more special. I'm also very proud of my sis Bethsy. She is the coordinator of this ministry and she actually wrote the play the girls did which was also great. She's the bomb! I'm proud of you girl! you have it. My first VLOG! How cool! Its not the play, just the dance. Make sure you scroll all the way down to pause the song on my playlist. Enjoy...and be blessed!

Oh! Anyone already familiar with the former MISSIONETTES program? Anyone a former MISSIONETTE? Comment if so...let me know!

Its been way too long...

I won't go on and on about how busy life is and how I wish I could blog more...yadda yadda yadda. Let me just start. A lot has happened since I last posted and I just want to thank God for the allowing me to be here right now typing this post. Each day of life that we are given is a blessing and I just want to recognize that right now.

Well, today was a cool day. Had lots to do and didn't accomplish much of it was still a cool day. I managed to make myself a cup of coffee and my daughter loves my coffee (I add whipped cream to my delish coffee). Well, I left a little bit for her (hey, don't judge me) and she tells me "Mom, I have a great idea. Lets share!" So, she walks to the kitchen, climbs the counter, inserts 2 straws, and voila! A work of art! I just had to take this shot! (Thank God for self timers!)

Good to be back! Will post again soon! God Bless you all!
