Birthday wishes

I hope you all are having a wonderful week... Unfortunately, my week has been filled with 2010 budget reforecasts and client proposals. Plus, this time change is just not agreeing with me. No, not at all. I'm a morning person, but I don't like having to get up when it's still dark outside. It just doesn't feel right. Between work and the dreaded time change, I'm feeling gloomy this week. And it doesn't help that my poor honey bunny is working loooong hours on a big project and he'll be off to Philadelphia soon.

I sure hope my creative juices kick into high gear because I want to create with my new kit. I can't wait!

Last night, we celebrated Richard's grandma's 83rd birthday. She is such a blessing. What a special lady. I love her so much! She makes me miss my Mami even more, but she's always looking out for us. She jokes that I have saved her life because I am always worrying about her. I did save her at least once though. We were at the beach last year when she was hit by a wave and she panicked and went under water. She was yelling for Mari (Richard's mom), but nobody noticed except me and I ran over and pulled her up out of the water. Pobrecita. I really do love her as if she was my grandma, too.

Here are some photos from last night. I captured this photo of her and Richard and a close-up of them holding hands. So sweet.




This is my mother-in-law, her aunt Felina, Richard's uncle and grandma.



And here she is blowing out her candles...



Toward the end of the night, Richard was holding his cousin's baby and I snapped a few photos. The funny thing is that Richard is terrified of holding little babies. He won't do it. Ever. This is the very first time I've seen him hold a baby. He is afraid to hold other people's babies, but yet he is so awesome with kids. How cute is this?



I leave you with a layout using February's Cocoa Daisy kit. This photo cracks me up. It was taken on our anniversary and we were at South Pointe Park in Miami Beach. It was REALLY windy and we were on top of a hill so we are taking a self-portrait while the wind is hitting us directly in the face. :) Good times.



Enjoy the rest of your week!

Peace and happy scrapping,
Vanessa
