Thanksgiving

Mario got his own library card. Milo was a little jealous and inspired to learn how to read to get his own library card.
                            
We went to Mario's school to see all the wonderful things he had been working on.

Mario also went to a primary activity to make Christmas ornaments.

The Law family came here to visit from Santa Fe, NM. 
This cutie at church this week.
I have been feeling inspired to take photos lately. That desire of being creative comes and goes. When it's here I need to take advantage of it. Thank goodness for the boys and their willingness to pose for me.I am so lucky.
Today is thanksgiving! Jared and I went to pick up our dinner and this is what the deli clerk gave us. I just started laughing like what the heck? 
Everything was inside and it was really good. I just had to make the sweet potatoe casserole. It was so easy and perfect. Our kitchen is small but this is my first thanksgiving I am not stress out.
I'm grateful for these three handsome boys and man. So fun and cheery all the time. 

                              ...

One of the projects I have been working on. I wish I had photos like this one when I was pregnant. 
This is our new family tradition for the holidays. We went to the Christmas tree lining ceremony here in Palo Alto. We had our favorite pizza and later went to eat ice cream. It rained when we were at the ice cream shop so we got to walk home under light rain.

Blog, Insomnia, feeling productive.

These are my fun friends from Palo Alto. Rachel, Heather and I. My workout buddies.  
For FHE we made Christmas ornaments.
I was feeling artsy so I made an ornaments that resembled my in laws. Seriously. How cute is that?
I took the boys to a book store. They loved it. 
And we also went to a new place called Bare Bowls. Everything is organic and I like the portions size.
 After Mario asked me for a 1,000 time, I finally opened a YouTube channel for Mario. Please subscribe!

Sunday.
I have been working on learning how to use a video editing program-Adobe premiere so I can make videos for Mario's YouTube channel. So far, I am learning.  Last night I went to bed at 2 am, setting up everything. I have really bad insomnia. I am not taking naps either so I need to do something productive. 

Here it is Mario's blog in case you want to subscribe

Today was a special Sunday too. We got to hear speak President Anderson from the quorum of the twelve Apostles. I think it is amazing to see in person someone that actually have KNOLEGDE of Gods existence.

Mario and Milo have been with me this week. Mario is sick so we are avoiding going to places.


Tuesday.
Yesterday, I went to take the photos for esharesinc new employees. Well, I get there, my flash burned out, my battery died and the lighting wasn't working for me. I was feeling very emotional. So I had the brightest idea of getting bangs. 
How bad could it be? Well.. I have curly hair and the humidity here is around 70 %. So I have a puffy mess in my head. I look like Matilda lol

So far my pictures are looking great.. This is an example of my work. Artistic portraits. That's all for now ;)

We are done with October.

Primary Program. Oct 26th
Mario's part was: "we can repent when we make a bad choice." We are so proud of you.

This is Mario's best school friend. His name is Jason. They hang out all the time.
October 27th:
Mario's real birthday. He woke up and the first thing he did was to open his presents. He got many presents from my parents and from Jared's parents. 
It might sound ridiculous but it's 60 degrees here and I am freezing. I am wearing my sweats and this comfy sweater. It also hides all the weight I have gained. I eat healthy but too much of it.
We took Mario out to dinner for his birthday. He had a mint Oreo and chocolate fudge shake and pancakes for dinner.

October 28th
Mario and Milo went to my friend Colleen Casper's house. She loves to throw parties. At her Halloween party, they all went crazy running around in the backyard. 

Ready for bed.

October 30th.
I took Milo to the YMCA with me like always. He did the Halloween fitness challenge and got a bag of candy and little fun toys.
Mario and Consuelo working on a craft together.
This morning after dropping Mario off at school I noticed this awesome pumpkin patch with huge carved pumpkins. Well, I found out that the CEO of Yahoo (Marissa Mayer) had it built. She owns the property in front of Mario's school. All the kids were excited and happy.
Steve Jobs' house was decorated as an evil hospital and there were other huge CEOs that had huge parties for everyone. Larry Page hired a fire dancer for his. I am name dropping as if I actually know those people. That is sad.


October 31st

Today is my papi's birthday. Happy Birthday!

These are Jared's coworkers. Fun people!

Our neighbors. We are so lucky to have really nice people around us.

See this lady in the crayon costume. That is Marissa Mayer, the CEO of Yahoo. 
She was giving out candy and toys.
Funny parts about last night:
*Milo going to random people and telling them "I look cool"
*Mario reading a sign on a gate that said: enter if you dare. Mario lifted his hand and his fist and screamed I dare! And ran to the house. It was hilarious and dramatic.


Our cool booty. Lol 
We are ending the night watching Ghostbusters. I am really tired.
I hope everyone had a great day. Goodnight.
