Thanks to my blogger friend and fellow Guat momma, Sarah,
I'm now playing the Pay It Forward game.
How does it work?Here are the rules:
I will send a handmade gift (of my choosing) to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this "PIF" exchange, and who make the same pledge on their own blog.
I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise!
The only thing you have to do in return is PAY IT FORWARD - on your own blog.
So, if you want to (eventually - remember, I get a year!) get a homemade goodie from me, and are willing to do the same via your blog, let me know!
(Note that you'll need to give me your real (snail mail) address... Which you can give be by emailing me
Let's have fun!

A Special Thank You♥Gracias

We were blessed to have the best Foster Family for Sophia. Since Sophia has been home we have continued contact with them weekly. They have become a part of our family. They have been a wealth of information to us and have been able to tell us about Sophia's first 13 months that we missed and they have been able to send us pictures from that time as well. We are very lucky and honored to call them a part of our famiy.

The weekend after they gave Sophia to us, they ran in a Marathon, and won a medal. They told us they wanted Sophia to have that medal since thinking of her gave them the strength to run it.

Thursday of last week we got the mail and were so excited to find a small package from them, we knew it was the medal and Frank and I were both so excited. But what we didn't know is in with the medal was a birthday card for Katelyn and a beautiful necklace. We both were in tears. It is stunningly beautiful and she was so excited to have it.

Iris de gracias y Marcial para afiliarse a nuestra familia y para hacer el cumpleaños de Katelyn especial y para enviar la medalla a Sophia. Lo atesoraremos y ella se honra de tenerlo. Usted es ambos una bendición a todos nosotros. ¡Amamos a ustedes ambos muchísimo!

♥FFF♥ Easter♥

This was last year and Sophia's 1st Easter Home. She was so excited but yet didn't know what was going on.
When I look back at these pictures, I feel so much happiness but yet so sad. She was so little.
Why can't we freeze time and keep them small a bit longer just to savor it? If you figure out how to do that? Please let me know.
Sophia all dressed up and ready to go. Look how tiny. Not much to them ponies is there? Now we got curls galore!
Happy Easter to you all from us all!
Un deseo de Pascua Feliz muy Especial a nuestra familia ampliada en Guatemala. ¡Iris y Marcial, amamos a ustedes ambos y le deseamos una Pascua muy bendita!
Con Amor
Frank, Lisa, Katelyn, Frankie y Princesa Sophia

Are you a Bow Addict? I have something for you!

Ok, listen up girls!

My friend Nikki is having a online bow party! What is a Online Bow Party you ask?
It's a great way to have a party and invite all your friends and family and no one has to even leave their house, including you the hostess.
Please leave your email address in my comments if you would like a email invite to Nikki's party. I will make sure she gets it and you get your invite.
Don't miss out on all the fun!

New clothes...Pictures...Ticked off

All in one day!
At the mall one day Frankie spun a Give away wheel at Sadies and won me a Bronze package. Free 8x10,2-5x7's & 8 wallets No sitting fee for one child and $19.99 for 2-4 So I thought, awesome I will get the 3 kids done in the barn room. Had my friends make Sophia's new bandana dress and bow and got the big kids matching shirts, all matched up and ready to go.
We get there and I was, am so disappointed. The girl that took the pictures, didn't know what she was doing and was asking me how I wanted the kids pictures? How to sit them? No Props? Totally unorganized and only took 10 minutes. And when she found out that I wasn't ordering any more pictures she was down right rude.
Even though I didn't pay for the pictures, I am still tossing up contacting the manager of the store? Any suggestions?
Here is my sweet girl all prettied up before we left!
