We're going to be in Texas until next week. For a mariachi and dance workshop. I'm so excited! I really like coming to these things. You meet so many good people. And you learn so much.

I've got all my homework with me. My Dad told me that it's important that I keep up with my school work. I agree. But I'm really excited about performing this week.

My Dad is going to be teaching. And all of my dance group is here too. I'm so excited! We had to bring so much luggage. The airports were so busy. But everyone is happy to be here. :) C

A New Dress

Today my Dad and I drove to the big malls. It's an hour from our house. But we wanted to go have a fun day together.

I wanted to buy some Christmas presents too. So I took my allowance with me. I've been saving it for a long time. And I had my list. I got lots of presents. And something really special for my Nana.

I also bought me something special. A new dress. :)

I found it at Forever 21. And it was $15. I really like it. I think I'm going to wear it for New Year's. My favorite part of the dress is the sleeves. I can't wait to wear it! :) C

Happy Thanksgiving

I think Thanksgiving could be my favorite holiday. My Dad makes the best food ever! He's already been cooking for hours. Yesterday, he baked a bunch of pies too. My Grandma and I even made a pumpkin roll. That was so fun! I can't wait to try it. Because I've never tasted one before.

We're having a lot of friends over today. I'm super excited about that. Baby Jelly Bean still isn't here yet. Jelly keeps telling us that she just wants to get through Thanksgiving before her baby is born. :)

Now I'm going to go have breakfast with my Dad and my grandmas. Then we have to get ready for mass. But I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! :) C

Praying for Sarita and Adelita

My friend Sarita's little sister was born last night. We're all super excited! And we can't wait to meet Adelita. My tio Juan told us that she has so much hair! They already put some of her bows in her hair. :)

We're all excited, but also scared. We are all praying for Sarita. She had her surgery a little bit after Adelita was born. We're all hoping that her surgery helps her. And that her cancer will be gone soon. For good.

I can't wait until they get to move back. Please pray for them both. And their mom and dad. They need all the prayers that they can get. They are so special. Gifts from God. :) C

My Dad Bought Me...

My Dad and I tried to start our Christmas shopping early. So we went to Old Navy last week. And I seen this shirt.

I really liked it. They also have it in purples, greens, and blues. But I liked this one. And I really liked the owls. But I didn't want to ask my Dad for it. Because it's getting close to Christmas.

My abuelita and I were looking on the computer yesterday, and I showed it to her. She liked it too. I don't have a lot of regular clothes. Since I go to Catholic school and I have to wear a uniform.

But my Dad surprised me today. He bought me this shirt. And a pair of jeans. Just because. That's what he told me. I think I'm going to save them for our trip to Texas next month. :) C

Going to Disney World

Today my Dad told me that we're going to go visit my Nono for Christmas break. I'm so excited! We leave the day after Christmas.

We're going to go spend New Year's in Disney World. But I'm more excited about seeing my Nono. We always have so much fun! This is my Christmas present from my Nono.

I just wish that my grandmas would come with us. But they don't want to travel during the holidays. And they don't really like all the walking that you have to do. But we will bring them back lots of stuff! :) C

My New Scarf

I wanted a new scarf. I think I might have told my Dad one day after church. And he told me that we could go shopping, after the mariachi conference. So I was pretty excited!

Today, my tia Sals brought me this scarf. Isn't it pretty? I like the color a lot. And it's super soft. :) Thank you tia! I love it. I just wish that it was colder outside so I could wear it. :) C

Dia de los Muertos

Today is Dia de los Muertos. I always think about Sarita on this day. She really likes it. She told me that this is her favorite holiday. :)

The reason for today is to celebrate our family and friends who have died. We make alters and offer food, gifts, and music to them. A really special day.

Tonight we're going to mass. And having a celebration at our house. It's important to remember all of our family. Even if they have died. It's really important. I like this day. Because we get to remember them, and celebrate their lives. :) C
