It’s AK’s Birthday

And just like that she turmed seven She has wanted a ninja turtle party for several months. We spent one afternoon making masks for everyone and then we bought swords for the guests to have during the party. It was a total success!!


This girl loves all things glitter, song, drama, dance, dresses, and superheroes. She is some what of an eclectic little thing. I call her my bohemian child and I love every bit of her free spirit. She amazes me!

My first born girl, you love very deeply.  You owe genuinely. Your entire personality is genuine. You are a lover of many things. Cheese being your favorite. You keep us laughing with your genuinely honest conversations that we can’t help but chuckle at most of the times. Here are a few example just so we don’t forget:

She just came down stairs and said “daddy the falcons are playing my favorite sea creature.”
Daddy, when I’m older can we invite a lot of men over here and who ever works the hardest, loves Jesus the most and prays the best we will pick to be my husband.
AK: Daddy how does salt water get in out bodies so we can cry?

Jim: Baby, we have tear ducts that make our tears.
AK: But daddy ducks are to big to get in our eyes.
Mommy why do boys always drive girls wear them when they’re in the car?

Anna because that’s what boys are supposed to do they are gentlemen.
why do boys do things when girls can do all of those things by themselves. That is what a boy in my class does. He always pulls my chair out.!
Are you hungry? AK: “My stomach tells me that I’m not, and my stomach tells me that I am.”
Ak: mom your eyes look really bad.
Me: I know babe I don’t have make up on
Ak: are you going to put make up on so your eyes don’t look so bad?
Me: yes
Ak: What will people say if you don’t put make up on your eyes?


She has waited six long months for this special birthday date. He has her heart and mine too! We are so blessed to have this man in our lives. Happy Birthday Sweet Girl! Daddy, one day she’ll ask for Natalia’s instead of Salsa’s!



I swear she was just born yesterday. But I see her face and listen to her speak her big words and realize that I am mistaken, she really is seven

Opening Day 2015

Spring is in the air, which baseball season has started. We love baseball season. This year we have three kiddos playing, Jake, Judd, and Sadie. It’s going to be a wild ride.

One minute, she is all smiles:

This baby….

Today is Wednesday! It’s seems that every.single.Wednesday lately she has decided to turn my world upside down while I try to school the other children.  

First, it was this


She dumped TWO full bags of cereal on the kitchen floor while I was helping the boys. The funniest part was all the other kids kept walking by and grabbing a snsck… Like it’s normal for us to have piles of cereal on the floor in the middle of the morning. 

Next, we started potty training so on Wedenesday of our first week she decided to poop on the stairs because stairs look Sorry, I don’t have a picture of that event.

Today, this happened 


I was helping AK with math and some how Caroline found my beads. She dumped out thousands of them. When I moved her, I found MANY more. She was picking up as many as she could get in her fists and throwing them. She said “fun”

All I wanted to do is help AK with math:) guess we should work on counting beads today?!?!

What will happen next week? Midweek shenanigans!
