B-day Boy

So we did a little b-day party for Alec's 1st b-day at our clubhouse. It's been a month already but I kept on forgetting to post some pictures for our extended family and friends who couldn't be here for his b-day...Soooo here we go...Alec did good, I thought he was going to have fun opening the gifts but he didn't care for them at the time. Now he loves his new toys, books and clothes. He had a special b-day outfit as you can see. I did a Mickey Mouse theme since he just loooves watching Mickey Mouse, and of course we had to have hot diggity dogs to eat (with Dave and Brenda’s amazing chili), and a b-day party can never go without Brazilian candy that my mom and I made. It was fun! Thank you everyone who was able to come and celebrate his first b-day ever!!! He'll have fun looking back at these pictures when he's older.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

It went by too fast...

....our family vacation. It was much needed, and we had lots of fun in Mexico. Everything was way better than I expected. The airport was nice, the city was clean, and the resort was amazing! Everyone was so friendly, always greeting us with a smile. I got to practice my Spanish, and even remembered some basic French. There were lots of Europeans there. Alec enjoyed the pool and beach. He did really well, especially on the airplane. He better get used to it at an early age :)
There are so many good pictures...

We saw quite a few iguanas
This was a show about the history of Mexico, it was so entertaining with live music and dance. It was at a park called Xcaret.

Perfect picture

There was a Brazilian restaurant in our resort, so we went to check it out

Alec's favorite place...the pool!
and the beach...

He was ready to jump in.
Our resort was wonderful

Miss America & Mickey Mouse

October was a great month for us. No, I was not dressed up as Miss America for Halloween...but Alec sure was a cute Mickey Mouse. This was his first Halloween so I made sure to take lots of pictures. Steve's grandpa calls me Miss America now because it's been 2 weeks since I became a U.S. citizen!! I'm super excited!! It was a great ceremony, and I feel way more responsible now being a dual-citizen and all. November is going to very fun as Alec will be turning 1! I can't believe how fast this year has gone by and how much Alec has grown in just 1 year. He's such a smart "Alec". He is not walking yet, but can stand up on his own. His favorite thing to do lately is climb up (and down) the stairs...sometimes I have to stay there with him for over 30 minutes cause he has so much fun with the stairs...oh man, he's going to be a climber :)
We're all doing great and are super excited for our vacation with Alec soon...

Visiting Utah

Last month we drove to Provo, Utah to visit my sister, and see some old friends that I made from my 1-year studying at BUY. We had a fun trip, and Alec did great. We drove to SLC a few times, had a BBQ at Bear Creek Lake, visited Park City, and below are some pics we took at the Thanksgiving Point farm. We had a great time!!
