My 24th Birthday ( Early Party)

Happy Birthday to me!

So. I had my fake 24th birthday last night at Celestine and Mike's house. It was great, we had Steak, potatoes and carrots for dinner. We watched a little of the debate between McCain and Obama. And we sang Happy birthday to Me. I Can't believe I'm 24 years old. I still feel like I am 17.

The were some of items from my birthday package. Yes, I'm gay from the guy from AI and the Face of Homelessness, plus some yummy candy, gift cards, ice scatting tickes and beautiful earrings.

A gift card to FOREVER 21.
Jared told me this year not going to buy me anything for my birthday because I got my early present, a treadmill, so yesterday I payed some guys 30 bucks to clean the east side of the house because it was full of wild grass, so that was Jared's present for me, he didn't know. But for my surprise he got me a gift card for the mall. I was so surprise!!

I like taking pictures like this with Jared.
Now when we kiss, we look like old folks kissing.

Mario was so excited with all the attention that he didn't want to go to sleep. He loves to visit his grandparents.

Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday everyone! It seems like forever since I posted last, sorry about that. We've been pretty busy lately, what with school starting and everything... Here's a little update on us:

Jenny has been enjoying her online courses this semester. She finds time to work on them while Mario is taking his naps. So far, she's been getting great grades on the assignments she's submitted. Jenny has also been working on her new flower garden that she got from Grandma Hobbs and Julie during our trip to Idaho last month. While planting the flowers, she found a big toad in our front yard!

Jenny has also been using her treadmill a lot and dieting to lose some weight.

Mario said his first real word when we were in Idaho! It was "bachata", which is a kind of music and dance native to the Dominican Republic. Mario is getting bigger every day and has been trying to talk and crawl a lot lately.

I've been busy with my last semester at UNM (I'm graduating this December, finally!). My classes aren't too bad, but there is a lot to do for them. I'm also still working at Sandia Labs part time and finding time to spend with my family. I love playing with Mario when I get home and I love seeing Jenny.

We need to get to church now so I'll end this post here. Here's a video of Mario that I shot in Wally World on my iPhone yesterday. Jenny was trying to hula hoop and Mario thought it was hilarious!
