My baby's BIG 30th!

Me and my man looking good for his 30'th bday party.
A kiss for the camera! Ohhhhhhh SCORE!
Sooo happy we got to go home to Cali for Jorges big 30th birthday. His parents flew us to Cali and gave him a big Mexican birthday party. It was great to spend time with friends we have not seen in a year or so and family. His parents are soo sweet for doing this for him. We spend the whole day and night before the day of the party preparing for it. His mom, myself and his sister made all the food from scratch. And darnet I didn't take pictures of the food or while we were preparing it. Oh well! All of his family was at the party to celebrate it with him. Also our friends Monica and Dom from the Valley that drove down just for him. Thanks guys! Also Ricardo, Liz for coming down I know you all were tired from work so thanks guy's. We had his Uncle DJ'd for us and also enjoyed Karaoke. It was soo much fun.
I love to see your smiling face. He knew what was coming up next.....the whole family was screaming for his face to be smash in the cake. It's a tradition!
That's more like it. Baby you make that cake look good!
My father and mother in law. These are the best In Laws in the world how did I get soo lucky? Actually I feel madly in love with Jorge the moment he took me home for the first time to have dinner at their house. I saw how he treated his mama and how he was not embarrassed to kiss and her hug her in front of me. He would always take care of her and not make her lift anything. I knew then he was a great catch by the way he was treating his mother. It gets me teary eyed just thinking about it and how much luv they all have for each other. They are such a loving family.
Monica and Dom. We have been friends with this fool's for 10 years. Jorge knows Dom longer through the military. We have so much memories with them and through the years we have kept in touch and friends no matter where the military sent us. And they are both from California too. He is not longer in the military and been out for a while but we always get together when ever we can. That was a fun night just catching up and talking smack and joking around.

Ricardo and Liz oh to be a newly wed again. NOT!!!!!hahahah. Ricardo has been friends with Jorge since 4'th grade. Liz is new in the clan but she fit's right in. She is now in of the circle! hehehe
Jorge's sister Isabel and her man David. I went to High school with her but didn't know her until I got together with Jorge. Thanks for everything sis! The kids had such a great time with Jakob and Alyssa.
Mini!!!!! I luv me my Mini! Mini is my mother in law's house keeper, maid, helper, assistant, babysitter and what ever else you want to name it. She is such an awesome lady. This was the first time I got to meet Mini and I luv her. She is such an awesome and sweet person. I made her cry on our last day in Cali and we all started crying even my hubby. She said that she has never felt so loved by strangers ever in her life and that she know how much our family loves her. I'm gonna miss waking up in the morning and having coffee with her and the whole family.
It was funny cuz it was sooo cold for California weather but to me, Jorge and the kids it felt great. It is much colder in Georgia so we thought this is awesome. Notice how everyone in the picture wearing jackets or sweater. After a while it got windy and finally had to put a jacket on but took it off as soon as I got inside. Here I am at the end of the night next to the fire pit chillin.

Thanksgiving Day.

I just wanted to share some pictures from our Thanksgiving day at the house. It was a simple party, nothing fancy but with friends and love ones. A lot of food and got to see my cousin Harry who just got back from Iraq and drove all the way from Florida to be with us. Ooooh how sweet!

Look at all the food! It doesn't look as much in the picture as it did in real life, but it was soo much food we had a marathon. I love holidays!

Isaac enjoying his food, although his face does not show it.

Isabella smiling even while her mouth is full of food. That girl know how to work it at a moments notice. hehehe

My handsome cousin Harry! He is such a grown up it is weird for me. I remember when I got to the US I was 12 years old and he was like 3 or 4 and I use to take care of him. I live with them until I reached High school so he was my baby brother growing up. Luv you Harry! It was fun having him for Thanksgiving and spoiling him with homemade food. Girls he is SINGLE!

Me and my love! Ahhhh how sweet! We were all chillin after the big dinner and after everybody left. We never get to be in pictures together since I am always holding the camera and most of all I tend to not take pics cuz we all have self esteem issues but I now try harder to be in pics for my kids and for myself as well. That's right folks that is no makeup and hair not dolled up but who care's it's a great picture cuz its me and my love. But just to make it interesting and getting back at my husband if you scroll down it's outtakes. He kept messing with me and saying how crazy I am for wanting to take pictures without looking at the camera. So this is what he did just to spite me. And just to spite you honey (cuz he looks at my blog all the time just to see what I am up to and comments once in a while) this is for you.

I can see you looking at me with those eyes! Punk!

Of course classic Jorge! Notice how he can fit half of his whole finger in there. Yeah baby! That's a Magana nose for ya!
