Everyday moments

Rain is pretty rare around these parts so the kids were really excited this morning to wake up to gray skies and about 2 minutes of rain. They ran to put on their raincoats and stood outside with their faces to the sky. They loved it!


Nothing exciting has been happening around here. Just the same old thing. Here are a few pictures from this past week.
This is me after doing my Barry's Boot Camp DVD. He really kicks my booty!!


These are the kids still going strong. They love to do the workout with me and I usually have to rewind it for them because they like to do it without me in the way.









We love to have a stash of pizzelle's in the pantry so we make them about every 2 weeks. The girls love playing with the dough and making a mess :-)









Marina is very serious when it comes to baking.



I just love to look at their little hands at work


And these little piggies are the cutest!



Michaela usually eats whatever she plays with.




Here's my little elephant. It's a towel with an elephant head on it and Michaela loves to wear it around the house.


This is how Michaela eats pizza! I turned around for a minute and I here her saying "look mommy, I got make up"




She is such a ham!



As you probably noticed, she does not like clothes! I do dress her in the morning but by lunch she is in her diaper. It's a good thing we live in Arizona!



They sure do keep me busy, especially the little one! I'm always cleaning up some kind of mess that she has made. If I'm not paying attention to her for one minute she finds something to destroy! Oh well, she's a stinker but I love her. She keeps our days exciting around here.
I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! I'm not sure what we're doing yet but I'm sure you'll here all about it next week ;-)
I gotta go, I'm making a few meals for our dear friends from church who just had a beautiful baby girl this past Wednesday. I hope to visit her today and maybe I can post a few pics for you to see!
Love ya,
Marilena

Hey Mar,
I'm ashamed to say I finally viewed your blog today (5-27-08). You all look so good. I must say though that I do have a tough time with you guys getting excited over gray skies and rain. That's a very common thing over here in the big "M" (as I'm sure you remember). Too bad we couldn't send some of ours over there. We really wouldn't mind sharing. Thank you very much for sharing these wonderful moments with your family with us. We all miss you very much. Hugs and kisses to all of you. Take care.
Love you,
ZiZi Joann

Hi Marilyn, Julio and kids:

We enjoy your pictures and blogs so much. Wish we could see the kids in person (and you). We miss you all so much and think about you guys ALL the time.

Your Michaela stories make me laugh and the pictures tell the story.
