Little Abe is such a cutie. He is so funny and adorable.
Robert was in love, he wanted him to come home with us. He is dying for a brother. Sorry Rob you got 3 sisters.

Mia with Lizzie and Sofie. I wish we lived closer. They get along so good.

Ava and lizze just hanging out.

We were lucky enough to get away and take a trip to Arizona to see my nieces and nephew. It was a short trip, but it I really needed to see them all. I would love to live near them. maybe one day we will all end up in the same state and the same city. We love and miss you all!!!

Mia's 4th Birthday

Yesterday was our little girls 4th Birthday. I really can't believe where the time has gone. She is independent now. It makes me a little sad when I look back at pictures and videos of her. Time does fly. This past week has been very hard on my family with the passing of my grandpa, but if it has taught me anything it is that we have to cherish every second with our loved ones. Having children has been a blessing and has helped with these hard times. Here is Mia. She wanted to spend her special day at Build a Bear. Mia and Ava got to choose a special animal. Mia picked a Jack Russel puppy, and a Ava a cheetah.
Here they are kissing a heart to place inside. How cute.

Ava giving her Cheetah a fluff.

And a brush.

Mia also fluffing up her doggie.

And later we had yummy Birthday cake. She loves ice cream cake.

She made a wish, I wonder what it was? My little girl is such a sweet heart. She has her 4 year old moments (the attitude) but ever since she was little she has always had a big heart and loves to laugh.
Happy Birthday Mia!!

Sad News for our family

We lost out grandpa one week ago today.Here is what was in the paper:

Juan Orejel Sr., 82, passed away early Sunday morning, Jan. 10, surrounded by his loving family.Orejel had lived in Fontana for many decades.The term “family man” does not do justice to the dedication which Orejel showed to his kin. From humble roots, he built himself a successful life in Southern California through hard work and tireless effort. He and his wife Rosa raised four children, John, Joseph, Carmen, and Gloria, who themselves produced numerous healthy and successful grandchildren.Orejel loved animals and provided many a dog, young and old, with a loving home. He enjoyed working outdoors and never missed an opportunity to engage in a new project to enhance his home, which he took incredible pride in. His family and friends pray that he rest in peace and that God continue to watch over him.
