Ready For School.

My Mimi Girl. She is growing up so fast. As her first grade year comes to a close its becoming more obvious actually how much growing up she has done in the last year. Its fun to watch her be excited to go to school every morning and come home interested in doing her homework (I hope that lasts all the way though to high school!) She is so willing to learn and to be taught. Its not only in the area of school. Last night she was such a big help me, her and her little sister. They were in a cleaning mood. Both were very willing to help me in any way they could. They helped with dishes, cleaning the table, and wiping off the fronts of the dishwasher and stove. I even got Eva to take the Magic Eraser and clean some of my walls! I am very proud of my children. Its fun to watch them all grow up.

My Little Musician!

It's so fun to watch Flavi's passion for music come out. I think we have another worship leader in the family! All of our children love music and singing but Flavi seems to have a musical talent. He likes to take out his little size guitar and try to play along with Abdel but his most favorite of all are the drums. He bangs on everything and when I try to tell him to be quite he tells me no that it's  his music.  We always catch him on the drum set at church after service is done banging his heart out with a big smile on his face. Now his newest instrument he has added to his collection is this kids size accordion. It was given to him by a lady in our church. He absolutely loves it!  I can't wait to watch him grow up and see how God will use his talent for the kingdom.

Quiet TIme.

This was our quiet time yesterday. All of them sat down together and read their Bibles! We had told Mimi before that when she was old enough to read well on her own we would buy her her own big girl Bible. So yesterday we made the trip to our Family Christian Book Store and found her a pink princess  Bible. She is in love it. Yesterday she couldn't put it down. She read 3 chapters in Psalm all by herself. So when I said it was time to sit down and look at a book they all grabbed their Bibles. I am a proud mama!
I have also started a nightly devo time with the girls before bed. Where we read a little out of our devo book and then look up the verses. We are also working on the books of the Bible and where they are located. I am happy that they are really into it.

My Baby Bump.

                      Photography by: Mimi
My baby bump. My bundle of joy! We are so excited to be having our fourth baby. God has really blessed us with our children. I love the feeling of being pregnant (minus the first 3 months!!) The feeling of a new life God has put inside me is the best feeling to me. I am 28 weeks along and am awaiting the day when our little Gabriela Joy will be brought into this world. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. Every once in a while Eva will tell me, " Mommy, your belly is getting big!" I love watching my children await the time when their new little sister will be here. All of the talks they have of the games they will play with her and how they will help mommy take care of her. Even Flavi  walks around the house talking about Gaby! June is fast approaching and we are ready. Especially me!

My Little Muffins!

This is my crew! Flavi-2, Mimi-6 and Eva-4. They are my life and the most precious little children to me. I love being a full time mother to these three. 
Things can be a challenge some days but that is what keeps life interesting when you have kids!
Flavi is our only boy so far. Everyday I am discovering the joys of having a boy. The volume in my house went up a little when he turned the big two!
Mimi is my little mama. She is a big help to me. She loves the Lord and strives towards being a loving a Christian. I am very proud of her and her love for the Lord and her family.
Eva is the funniest four year old you will meet. She is my little princesses in cow girl boots. She can't wait to start kindergarten next school year. I know she will do well.
They all are growing up way to fast for what I want. I love watching each stage they go though in their lives. They are truly a blessing from the Lord for my husband and I.
