Everyone keeps telling me to blog and I really do want to. But here's the problem: I have absolutely nothing to blog about. So I'll try to think of something, anything...
Yesterday was el Dia de los Reyes, the Day of the Kings, and to celebrate we got to eat Rosca de Reyes. Basically it's like this big, oval pastry thing that everyone takes a piece of and eats it. It's really good, so you might want two pieces. But be very careful-- there are THREE little plastic babies hidden in the pastry somewhere and if you get one you have to make dinner for everyone! And, I thought they'd be pretty noticable, but then Freddy's step dad showed me the one he found and it was TINY. Maybe, 1 inch by 1/4 inch... After seeing one I was like OH! Maybe I already ate one withou realizing it...? But luckily I didn't get one (or I don't THINK I did)-- but Freddy did... Wonder what he'll make?
What else... what else? Riley is getting bigger. And now he stays outside all day, every day. (Kinda makes me sad to leave him out there... but what can I really do-- it's not my house, so it's not my choice.) He got his first shots about a week ago... he was probably MUCH better than I ever was at getting shots. And he gets more in two more weeks. He's learning tricks too. Like sitting. That's about all we've gotten to. Today I tried "Stay" but we'll work on that more..
I got my new planner for 2009. Love it! It's pretty colorful and fun, completely different from my 2008 planner; I like it 100% more. I anticipate that I will be 100% more organized because of it.
Tonight Freddy is playing soccer-- the first game of their new indoor team. I'm super excited-- I like being there to watch him play.
Today I went to my Grandma and Grandpa's house. My mom and I went to go and do their grocery shopping, etc for them. When we got there we stayed to talk for a bit and Grandpa went over his to do list for the day. One of the things was that he needed to do was to write his pen pals. (Pen pals?) My mom clarified, Southern California Edison, California Gas Company, etc. Oh yeah, pen pals... Funny. My grandpa's funny.
That's pretty much all I can think of... for now anyway... I'll update as soon as something interesting happens.
OH! Except this! For Christmas Eve we went to Freddy's stepdad's parents' house. They have a tradition that they have gifts for all of their family. I was so surprised that they had one for me too-- just since I haven't really been part of the family for that long, and I don't really know them that well. Sweet, a present. So then I open it. AWESOME... it's a T-shirt that says (in Spanish)-- "I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA. I AM THE BEGINNING AND THE END. I AM JESUS CHRIST." Um... thank you?? Sooo... where do I wear that to??? Not sure yet.. I'm still going to write them a thank you card... in Spanish. It's the thought that counts, right??
