Vincent's Kindergarten Graduation!

Gabriel and I attended Vinny's graduation ceremony yesterday. This is his graduation picture that was taken in March. Look at that smile!
Graduation Day! That hat made his head look BIG!!!!!!!!!
Receiving his "diploma". He's been promoted to 1st grade. Mrs. Hobbs did a great job with all the kids! It was a successful year for our kindergartener. Here's Vinny throwing his cap in the air. Instead of having the normal tassel, he had a scorpion...his schools mascot. Hip Hip Hooray!!!! Schools out and summer break has officially began! This summer will be fun. We plan on going to Ca a few times, Disneyland, Laguna Beach [our favorite beach in Ca], and swimming in our pool. Oh and we get to sleep in.........ALOT!!!!!! Ciao!

Franko's 5 NOW!!!!

Joseph Frank turned 5 yesterday! All our kids have different nicknames but I think Joey has the most nicknames out of the other kids. Lets see....we call him Franko, Frankie, Frankie Doodle, Shakes, Love Bug, Josephus [thanks to Nana...Aunt Erika], Doodle, and Doodle Bop. Since we postponed our trip to Ca this weekend, we told Joey we would do anything he wanted to do. So we went out to eat breakfast yesterday at one of the casinos here and went bowling afterward. We bought him his cake after our game. He picked his own cake!
He's now 5 years old! He will now use all 5 fingers to state his age! This picture is of Gabriel [smiling again!!!!!!], myself, and Frankie Doodle.
This picture came out pretty good!!! So then today, Joey wanted to go to Vegas, eat breakfast again, and watch a movie. We did all that! We watched Iron Man which was so good! He got lots of phone calls from our family singing Happy Birthday yesterday. He loved it all!!!

Christina's Day!!

Christina was given an award for completing the G.R.E.A.T. program yesterday. As a treat, they drove 3 buses full of 7th graders to the skating rink here in town. How fun!!!!
I showed up with Joey and stayed for awhile. Here's a picture of Crissy as she is about to go back to the rink to do some skatin' with her friends.
Here she is accepting her award! Way to go Christina! We are so proud of you and continue to support your every step. This has been a challenging year for you but with us pushing you to do your best, you've shown us that you can do anything!!! Love you lots!!!

Card Swap

Here are the cards from our card swap with Lisa Stenz
This weekend was supposed to be surgery weekend for Joseph. We are so happy that it didn't happen after all. We spent the day yesterday in Las Vegas going to Target and watching a game of baseball. Gabriel's friend plays and we stopped by to watch his team "BEANZ 'N KRACKERZ"....funny name right!!! We also went to a carniceria [meat market] and bought some carne asada, beans, fruit, and lots of other yummy goodies.
