It's been 3 years

since we have said our vows at St. Patrick's Church. My love, it has been a roller coaster these past three years, full of changes and new beginnings. I have to say it has been a pleasure being able to hold your hand as we lift our arms to enjoy the flips, loops, and drops of life. Our marriage has been like Space Mountain, we never know when the next loop or flip will come but as long as you right beside me, I know we can gt through anything. Here's to many more by your side!

Someone mentioned...

I don't post very often....so I thought it would be nice to post some pics of what has been going on in good ol' laredo.

First off, we finally have tile in our new home, but I haven't taken pictures of it yet. So here are some before pics of our house.

So we finally have tile in the whole house. We need to paint two walls and one bathroom. Next are the base boards which we need to sand and repaint. Lastly, we need to power wash the outside to take the chipping paint off and repaint. Slowly but surely we are getting closer to the move in date which for now is presumed to be some time in February.

The Garcia Gonzalez and Kuhns Garcia families spent Christmas at Tio Poncho's house and although we didn't take many pictures, we did get a chance to snap one with Santa hats on. We had a lot of fun, but as always we did miss our Austinite and Qataries from making it a real Christmas! We did see the Garcia Ibarrola's before they left to the In Laws to spend Christmas eve. We exchanged gifts and had a great time!

Next we had the baptism of our new Goddaughter Roxanna Maria at St. Patrick's church. Fr. Mary David from the Brothers of St. John Congregation presided andhe gave a beautiful homily on the welcoming of a new member to the Body of Christ.

And today, has been a nice and relaxed Sunday. This morning Roxanna's father and wife came over for some barbacoa for breakfast. Once they left we kicked back and rocked and rolled to good ol' guitar hero. We even got my mom and dad to jam out! My mom's face is priceless!!!!!

Well folks, from our family to yours I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and have a safe and fun New Year! A special shout out to the Rose family and their beautiful two new sons!! And another very special shout out to our Qatary family whom we miss very much and can't wait to spend next Christmas with them! We love you and miss you.....
