Logan's First Communion's

Hola Amigas! It's been CRAZY! Solimar's asthma has been so bad that her lungs are in distress...She is on the mend...As she is such a TROOPER...and her COLORFUL personality doesn't let anything get her down. I have been busy creating, creating, creating. Here is a First Communion invite I made for my friend's son. I cased it from duviness at SCS.I love the elegance and simplicity.

GAB Challenge 7

Hola Amigas! It's time to PARTY with the GAB DT. This week's theme is Birthday. This should be easy as we ALL have a birthday to celebrate at least once a month...if not more. This month I have Solimar (my daughter), Aramis (my hubby), My Mom (same as hubby's), Abdel (my BIL), Sol (my neice), Aidan (my nephew), Liam (my Godson-born the 4th)...hmmm, anyone else?

For today's share I made a masculine (I KNOW-SHOCKER) birthday card.

Let me know what you think? and play along.

City GIRL!

Hola Amigas! Solimar and Joaquin had a BLAST in the city. Solimar had no clue that she was going to the American Girl Store.We walked and talked about the possibilites...Joaquin and I ran to the store and waited for her to notice it...She noticed a HUGE poster of Kanani, 2011 Girl of the Year. She was so EXCITED!Look at her face. She brought her Lanie, 2010 Girl of the Year. Lanie got her ears pierced and her hair done. She also got a new wardrobe. Solimar also picked up a bag to carry her in and clothes for her... Of course before we entered my hubby gave her a limit that FLIES out the window the minute she says, "Please Daddy". HE MELTS! "Mama, Soli done?" My poor baby.
We told him when Solimar is done he can buy whatver he wants in Toys R US! PRICELESS!

We had lunch at Havana Central, YUMMY! As you know both my children have food allergies so no dessert for them. Our waiter Jesse was so NICE and accomodating. He was really careful with their orders and filled a HUGE coctail glass with fresh fruit and a candle and brought everyone to sing to Solimar. She had no clue. When she realized it was for her she was so embarrassed.
and here we are in Toys R US! This place is HUGE! I think it's 4 or 5 floors. There was a woman waiting in line to get on the Ferris Wheel and she didnt want to wait anymore so she gave us her tickets...THEY LOVED IT! Joaquin also bought two big trucks. He was a HAPPY CAMPER!
What a LONG day! and we aren't even done YET! We then went to our counsin's house and they had a DELICIOUS dinner for us!
This is our Titi Ruth.
