Failed attempt to decorate Mario's room.

I went to Mario's first play date at my friend Emily's house, which is the most beautiful house I have ever seen. Well, I wasn't surprised that her child's room looks like a room from a magazine, she has three small children under the age of three and still had time to decorate. I was so inspired by her son's room that I decided to paint Mario's room. The first mistake was that the color was flat and it made the room look smaller. Mario's room is already small so I didn't like that.

I painted and it looked okay at night but the next morning I could see all these splashes of dark paint and I didn't like it. I went back to Walmart (where I chased a lady down Cerrillos but that is another story) and got another paint color for free because the color came out too dark..
In the pictures the color doesn't look that bad but I disliked it a lot.
I painted the room back to a creme color. It looks like I didn't do anything to it. I got some cars, airplanes and train stickers and my boys put them on the wall.
Mario is into those things.

This huge red car is his favorite.
Before going to sleep Jared reads two books to Mario. Oh before I forget, Mario said his first prayer last week. He folded his arms and said two things, you know baby talk and he was done. I'm so proud of him because he can't say any real words yet but he participates.
I can see that he is learning to love Heavenly Father.

Tuesday the 19th.
So much snow here in Santa Fe.

Cute foot steps

The snow was deep.


Today I was in Mario's room working out (he doesn't like to be alone in a room). He loves drawing and looking outside at the beautiful snow.



Yes, Mario loves to watch movies in his bed.
On Tuesday we were invited to go to eat and check out a new restaurant located behind Jared's office called Second Street Brewery . We were the first customers and we got to eat for free. Is that awesome or what?
We got to socialize there with some of Jared's co-workers and friends.
I really LOVE Santa Fe.
Mario took a picture of me with my iphone. He is really getting good at it.
The restaurant is where the Farmer's Market is located.

I had a good Steak Salad with bleu cheese.

Tuesday was a really nice day for me. After eating at Second Street Brewery I went to play Bunco with some ladies from my ward and have dinner too. It was a pleasant time and I laughed like I haven't done in a long time.
2010 is going well so far!

Update!





We are the proud new owners of a Land Rover HSE 2006!!!
After our little blue Hyndai die in the freeway, Jared, Mario and I have been using the little truck to moved around. It was nice to be close to my two guys but I wasn't really happy just living like that. Mario's car seat is enormous, and we didn't have enough leg space. So, we got a new car.
These pictures are actual pictures of the Land Rover we got.


Our New Year's Dinner.
So far this 2010 has been a nice year for me and Jared. I keep saying that 2010 is going to be the year to do a lot of new thing and to do things that make us happy. We finished 2009 with a nice dinner. Jared and I waited for the new year to come. We were so tired, but it was nice to drink some apple cider with him and to say a prayer so our new year will bring amazing things for us.
Jared in his office at Qforma. He has an amazing view. His office is located in downtown Santa Fe, plus he got a raised at the end of this year, after working there for just 8 months! I'm really proud of him and his amazing accomplishments. You see girls, it pays to married a smart guy.
We got together with Jacob and Shauna. It was nice having them here
as the same for the Dunlaps.
Jared, Mario and I at down town Santa Fe.

Every morning this beautiful amanecer shows in my bedroom window.
After living here for almost six years, I finally went skiing for the first time with Jared. I took a lesson with all the little children. It was fun and I learned a lot. I think I did pretty good. I went once on the bunny hill, I fell MANY times but I enjoyed. I hope to go back soon.


I also have some exciting news from me. I went to school and I am just missing a few credits to graduated with my Associates degree in arts with a concentration in Culture and Gender Studies. Fancy eh? I'm really happy about this, and all the new things this year will bring. I didn't make too many new years resolution but my main one was to avoid stress and stressful people first because it makes my GD worst and second, life is too short to be wasting it with insufferable people. What? You know that I will say what I think.
Love you guys, have a great 2010!
