It's been really cold here lately. The wind has been strong too. We've had snow. My Dad said that he's glad he doesn't have to go to work today. Because it's really ugly outside. We're not used to having winter weather here. It usually doesn't snow. And it never gets this cold.

Every night, my Dad has built a fire in our fireplace. Today my abuelitas didn't go to mass with us. Because the weather was too bad. It's better that they stay at home. I wouldn't want them to get hurt. And right after church, my Dad and I came home.

He made us breakfast. And after we ate, we all put our pjs on. We've been under the blankets since. It's that cold! But I'm glad that we get to have hot chocolate. And my Dad's homemade soup. :) C

Sarita is Happy

My Tio Juan and my Tia Christina came home today. Sarita is very excited to see them. I think they had a good trip. Because they can't stop smiling! They brought us all back something too. I got a pretty pearl necklace.

All my tios sent them to Hawaii. I think they were gone for a month. My Nono said that they needed some time away. Because they've been taking care of Sarita since she was a baby. They spend most of their time at the hospital. My Nana, Nono, and Dad took turns watching Sarita. I know she had a good time!

It snowed here on Tuesday. We live in the desert. But this year, we have had a lot of snow. It's been fun to play in! But my Tio Juan said it was a big change for him! I think they just got used to being on the beach. :)

I'm glad they're back. We all missed them! My Nana, Nono, and I have been praying for a baby too! We're not supposed to say anything. But My Tio and Tia are trying to have another baby. It could help Sarita. I hope God sends them another angel. :) C

Snow White

Yesterday we watched a few Disney movies. My Dad said that he had never seen Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs. I'm not sure about that. But that's what he said. He liked it a lot. He told me that the next time we go to Disney World, he wants to buy something with the Dwarfs on it. I think he should get a coffee mug. :)

Sarita told him that he looked like Doc. I think he is more like Happy. My Dad didn't really know who we were talking about. He just knew who Sleepy, Doopey, and Grumpy were. Doopey reminds him of Sancho. He's pretty silly like that! And Grumpy, he knows Grumpy. Because my Nana has some pjs and a sweatshirt with Grumpy on them. My Nana says that she is like Grumpy in the morning. My Dad agrees. :) She just doesn't like the mornings. My Dad is like that. But coffee always makes him feel better. I hope we get to see Snow White again with my Nana! :) C

Little Women

My Dad and I went to Barnes and Noble yesterday. I've been wanting a new book. It's been really cold around here. I like to read when it gets cold like this.

I looked and looked through all the books. My Dad was having coffee and a cookie. I picked the book Little Women. My Nana and I had been talking about it. She likes to read a lot like me. I stayed up late last night reading. I got up early today to read too! I'm already halfway through my new book. But it's a really good book. :) C

Ash Wednesday

Today is Ash Wednesday. My Dad went to church with me this morning. I go to a Catholic School. We go to mass every day before school. This morning, my Dad came too! And we got our ashes. It's the beginning of Lent. Papi Rene told use not to look at it as a sad time. Or even a time to give up stuff. But a time to do better. To do nice things for people. And make a better effort to pray and meditate every day.

I decided to practice every day for an hour. And to help my Dad and abuelitas more. I'm also going to volunteer at church. I think that would be a good deed to do.

I was happy to get my ashes today. It was weird to see so many people at church. You never see that many people there. But it was nice to see them worshipping. :) C

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! I'm so excited! I like Valentine's Day a lot. Because it's all about LOVE! My Dad gave me a heart necklace. And some cupcakes. Tonight, we're having a special dinner. My Dad had the weekend off. He's been cooking us lots of yummy things!

In the mail, I got a box of candy and a teddy bear from my friend Joe. My Nono gave me some roses. And chocolate strawberries. :) But more than the presents, I just like a day to tell everyone how much you love them! Happy Valentine's Day! :) C

I Like This Blanket

I found this blanket on Ruby's blog. I really like it. This blanket was made my Ruby's husband's grandma. I don't think there is a pattern for it. But I really like it! I like the colors most of all! I want to get better at crochet. I want to make me a blanket like this one.

My Nana has crochet me 2 blankets. I like them both a lot! 1 of them is on my bed. I sleep with it every night. It matches my room. The other one, is in the living room. That way when I watch TV, I can use it. It's my favorite color!

But I really want to make me my own blanket. I wonder how hard it is to make a blanket like this. Maybe I should show my Abuelita this picture. She can help me make one. :) C

Super Bowl

Today we had a busy day. We went to church. My Nono took us all out for brunch. My Dad had to go to his concert. I got to go see it last night. It was really amazing! While my Dad was at the concert, my Nono put together our Super Bowl party. Lots of people came over!

By the time my Dad got home, everything was cooked and ready to go. We don't watch too many sports things. My Dad likes soccer. But we all enjoyed the game. There are still some people here. But Sarita went to bed a little while ago. I think I'm going to go to sleep too!

It was a fun weekend. We did a lot. Mostly, we ate. But it was really good! My favorite part of the weekend was making cupcakes with my Nono and Sarita. And my Dad's concert. :) C

Sarita Wants One

Last Wednesday, Sarita's parents went on a vacation. So she's staying here with us. So is our Nono. He came back with my Dad, my abuelitas, and me after New Years.

This afternoon Sarita and I were looking at Ruby's blog. Our Nono was making dinner. And we found this.

This is the front of the pillow. It's like a Dollhouse. Sarita really wants one.

This is the back. It has little rooms. She really liked that!

You can even climb inside it. And take a nap. Sarita would fit inside too! She's tiny. The doctors said that she's not growing because of her sickness. But when she starts her recovery, she'll catch up.

But she really likes this pillow! And our Nono searched for one to buy for her. But he couldn't find one. :( I wonder if we should write to Mrs. Ruby. Do you think she would make one if our Nono would pay her for it? :) C

Ruffle Headband

I found this headband on Disney's blog. Don't you like it? I just wish I knew how to make one. Here's the tutorial. But it's kind of out of my sewing skills. I just like the way it looks. It's so ladylike. :) C
