One and only........

Okay so Rob and I decided it was time to cancel our facebook account and start updating our blog regularly. It feels so refreshing to have done that! So if you guys want to check up on us this is the one and only place. ;)
I have been thinking a lot lately about my life where it is now and where it is going to be in 5 years and there are so many things I want to make happen. One thing I have always always wanted 4 kids but the 3 that I have are sure kicking my butt! I go back and forth one day I am certain I am done. I will even talk to Rob about permanent options, but other days I think what the heck what's one more to the clan? Is the difference to 3 to 4 really that great? Also if I have anymore I want to get pregnant sometime next year no later. Because I don't want a big gap since I am only having one more, (or if any) so any suggestions would be great. one thing I do know is that I am so grateful for the 3 that I do have, and I wouldn't change it for anything.
Rob is still working at Advanced Shotcrete as a foreman but is currently looking into a career change. Me I am still managing these apartments. It has been tough but I know one day I will be grateful for the opportunity we had to do this.
The kids are great. Allison is loving school and she is so talented with her art she is always drawing and finding new ways to draw. She is so kind hearted just like her dad. Sophia she is as rambunctious as ever and so sweet and funny. My mom says that if I ever wonder what I was like as a child to look at Sophia, because she is my little replica. Devin is almost 18 months already and he is starting to become a little boy. He does not look like a baby anymore. It's bittersweet. He sure is a momma's boy he never wants me to put him down.
This October Me, Allison and Devin had the opportunity to go to Brazil for 19 days.
the purpose of the trip was so we could attend Ciro's wedding. It was such an amazing
experience! My Dad and my brother had never met my kids. It was so amazing to see them
hug and Kiss my kids!
Here is a photo of the Abdalla side in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Ciro and Bianca, my grandma, my dad and his wife Roberta.
Ciro at the beach with the kids
Allison and Devin. I can't get enough of that speedo.
This is the Nougeria's from my moms side in Marilia. My Grandma and Grandpa. They are just so sweet.
Allison's little cousin Camilia. Allison misses you!
This used to be my playground.......................
My Uncle, Jr, Andreza, my moms sister Lucia. I miss you guys. You promised to come visit So lets see if we can make it happen!

And all my extended family
my grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins. I miss brazil, I miss my dad and my brother.
My dad was a natural at being a "vovo" It was truly amazing to see him and Ciro with my kids.
Allison loved it she loved the beach and I even managed to buy Devin a little baby speedo.
I am so proud to be a Brazilian even though I was raised here. After visiting there I am bringing
some of the latin culture to my family. There is such a close bond in families in Brazil, it's just
different than here. I don't know how to really explain it. It was hard to leave Rob and Sophia
behind but next time they are coming! I miss everyone back there. I am so glad to have Bianca as
my new sister in law. Welcome to our family!
When we got back Rob and I took our dirt bikes a couple more times, it was great. I sure
love riding that thing, but what makes it better is having a hobby I can share with my best friend!
Rob got a cool little camera called a go pro he mounted it on my bike and I was fortunate
enough to have it on when I crashed my bike. I sustained minor injuries, but it's too funny!

Now the snow has arrived!
With Thanksgiving coming up I just want to say how grateful
I am for my husband and all that he does for me and our kids. I am also grateful for our
kids and the joy they bring into our lives.
Well I think that's it for now. I hope everyone has a awesome Thanksgiving! We are headed up to Idaho to spend it with Ben and Lori Jensen then off to gammie's house! Can't wait to have a calm holiday with friends and family.

6 Months later Finally!

Well I decided I am finally going to sit down and update my blog. Here are some pictures we took Rob and I had a vacation scheduled  and we hung around home but we did a ton of stuff. 

We went to 7 peaks. We had a blast, I liked it allot better than lagoon and it was way cheaper.

Rob wrapped Sophia up because she was cold.

The waves were coming for them!

Funny face. She is so white and blond! I promise these kids are mine.

Fishing up at Jordanelle Lake We caught a few fish and some snakes.
Allison Playing in the fountain at Lagoon.
Allison on the Lady Bug ride at Lagoon she screamed the WHOLE time, Bloody murder. We left that ride and were waiting in line for another ride and some 16 year old kids walked by and was like did you hear that little kid screaming on the ride? and her boyfriend said ya that was awesome. She said, no it wasn't poor thing. That was Allison they were talking about.
Merry Go Round

Fun ride with daddy
Fountain at the Gateway.

I am sorry it has been so long since I have updated. Our computer crashed like 2 weeks ago so these are the only pictures I have until I find them on the old hard drive.

I can't believe how big my girls are getting. I know Sophia is still little but I saw her up next to a newborn the other day and she was huge next to her.


Okay I finally decided to cut Allison's hair. It was so hard to make that decision but it was good one here is a                before shot.
So much better!

Here is Allison with Santa she was a little nervous but she still sat on his lap and told him what she wanted for Christmas.

 My dear Sophia 
Recently she has started to smile when she sees people she recognizes and likes. I was fortunate enough to have the camera right by my side. I can tell she loves Allison. Allison was the one that got her started smiling this time. Allison walked in front of her and sat next to her and started to talk to her. Sophia immediately turned her head to look at her big sister and started to smile so big. She was so interested in her, staring at her. It was cute.  She is getting so chubby already. And she has slept through the night a couple of nights. Lets see how long that lasts. 

Just some cute pictures

Allison loved halloween. She was so excited to do her make up like mommy and wear her Wonder Woman costume.  We went to my moms house and trick-or-treated in her neighborhood.  The day before Halloween I explained to Allison how to trick- or -treat and she would knock on the doors at home and play pretend it was so funny. Her imagination is amazing. 

I think Allison got on a little Sugar high and started making funny faces.

We went to the zoo a couple of weeks ago. I thought it was pretty lame they have hardly any animals there anymore. Allison had a good time and she loved the Giraffe. I just remember it being so different as a kid. I think they had a lot more animals then. It was worth it but we probably wont go again anytime soon. 
This is my scary pumpkin. I know I am not usually the creative one but I need to tell every one that I came up with this pumpkin.  I carved it while Rob was sleeping. The only thing he did was paint the blood on the little pumpkin. When my sisi saw it she did not belive that I did it that is why I feel the need to specify, sorry.    :0)
