Happy 2.5th Birthday Nic!

2.5 years ago today Nic was born.  I remember going through the first 6 months of Nic's life wishing I could fast forward time.  But sometime around the year mark, I stopped feeling this.  I cherish each milestone and each month and at 2.5 years it is only going faster. It seems that I'm always tired and can barely keep the house afloat but today I wanted to make celebrate Nic's 2.5 birthday.

It was pouring and I picked up Nic at 5pm and went to Target to get some cake mix to make him celebratory cupcakes.  We got soaked but we got the stuff for the cupcakes.

The ingredients

Mixing the batter

Counting how many cupcakes we are going to make

Watching them bake

Blowing out the candles

And a few with Mami

He was so happy with his cupcakes and so was I.  They were delish. 

Happy 1/2 Birthday Nicolas, I love you more than you will ever know. 

Until the next post
ps-please excuse the crappy shots but the memory is more important than the quality.

Long time no post

I think it has been over a month without an update.  I feel like I've neglected my blog and photography but I still pick up my camera weekly and read other people's blog (LOL).  Life is catching up and after a long day at work and spending time with Nic the last thing I want to do is edit pictures and sit in front of a computer. 

I still have not gone through the 800+ pics from Napa/San Francisco.  I did post the first day of our trip on picasa. 

Instead of sharing the ones that are technically right, I'll share the silly ones from the first day. 

My sister, Caro, and BFF, T, waiting to be picked up.  I gave them the wrong description of the car, oops!

The best combo cheezits and champaign. (LOL)

Me acting silly!

And one of T & Caro resting up.  We were tired after a cross country flight.

I'll hopefully finish editing my trip pics soon but don't hold your breath!
