It wasn’t hard to find Nemo!

Hello everybody!  I hope you guys are well.  We woke up to another snow day here in Brooklyn, NY, a blizzard named Nemo, and this time there was a lot more snow to play with.  You can already imagine the joy in my daughter’s heart when she looked outside and saw everything covered in glorious snow.

A family who plays in the snow together, stays together!  We had a lot of fun.

Bundle up and take good care all.

Until next time…

First snowfall of 2013

Hello everybody!  I hope you guys are well.  We had our first, quick snowfall of the year in Brooklyn, NY this past Friday night onto Saturday morning.  It was a semi-thin blanket of snow, but once it was shoveled to the side there was enough to play with for about a day.  My oldest daughter, who loves snow, couldn’t wait to go outside.  You could see the anticipation on her face.  She kept looking out the window and going on and on that we had to hurry before the snow melted.  She was very worried!  🙂

As soon as we were all bundled up, we made our way downstairs and the fun started:

I love how a little bit of snow brings such sheer happiness to Olivia.  She kept picking up the snow, which was still soft, and throwing it up in the air.  Can you imagine if we lived somewhere where it snowed more?  I think she would simply burst.  Sophia likes the snow as well, but she starts focusing on her gloves and trying to take them off.

If it’s snowing where you live and you love the snow, happy snow day.  If you simply despise it, my regards.

Take good care all.

Until next time…

Winter Assembly Show

Hello everybody!  I hope you guys are well.  Today was another first for my husband and me.  OUR DAUGHTER SANG IN HER FIRST SCHOOL SHOW!  Teachers, faculty members, and volunteer parents did a fantastic job in making sure that everyone, who came to see the show, signed in with their identification cards.  You could sense the anticipation and joy in the air.  Once the lights were dimmed, it was show time.  Two classes were brought into the auditorium, while the other classes waited out in the hallway.   A student from each class was chosen to announce their respected classes and the song they were going to sing.  As soon as the first class started singing, I immediately thought of the Sandy Hook tragedy and my eyes started welling up.  I took a deep breath and composed myself.  After the students finished singing, we clapped for them and they got escorted back out into the hallway as the next classes made their way in.  Olivia’s class was last and they were singing the songs, “Mamacita, Donde esta Santa Claus?” and “All I Want for Christmas”.  When her class finally came in, we waved like mad so she could see exactly where we were seated.  As they positioned all the kids into their places, my daughter’s teacher guided her to the front and I was so surprised to see that she was going to be one of the announcers.  I was so excited and nervous for my little girl, but she did a great job in announcing her class and the name of the song.   I was so proud of her.  We had a wonderful time hearing and seeing her perform.  All of the kids did a great job and I made sure to clap extra hard for each class because I believe it made them smile more to hear how much we were enjoying their performance.  We can’t wait for more moments like this and we’re definitely going to treasure it for the rest of our lives.
