Wonderful Weekend !!!!

After lots of past issues and things i think DH is finally starting to spend some quality family time. Thursday Alberto picked up Fifi for me which is a first....Here is a pic of him after picking her up.

I took a much needed vacation day friday so I could catch up my cleaning and laundry and spend some time with Fifi. Friday night Fifi had her first official playdate with her 2nd cousin Braidyn. Mr. Braidyn Del***** (sorry I won't post his real last name) is the son of Alberto's Nephew. He was born on 11/26/2007 and is the little brother to Mason who is now 3. He was about 7 lbs at birth and is a HUGE baby now at almost 30 lbs. Fifi is 1 and only just over 21 lbs.!!!!!! But they were so cute playing....although at one point they actually started fist fighting!!! I was shocked .....but they stopped thank GOD!

Saturday morning DH woke up with Fifi so I could go get some overtime at work and when i got home Sofi was running all over the house (Dad is the push-over so she can do what she wants with him...LOL) I gave her a bath and DH got ready and we went to Jackson Outlets Mall in Central Jersey down by six-flags. The weather was perfect and we had a nice family day shopping and walkind around. Fifi loved it!!!

Sitting on the Car....still to little to turn it on but she had fun !!!


After the Outlets we tried to make it back to North Jersey to go to Jersey Gardens Mall but we were too late so we went home.

Sunday I took Fifi to church and this was our first time in the new church. We still have the same congregation but we moved to a new building because now there are too many members to fit in the old building. The inauguration (ribbon-cutting ceremony) was at 10:30 and i have a video but i haven't uploaded it yet. It was kinda hot in church so Fifi was miserable but she managed to make it through the service...LOL

So after that we picked up Daddy and headed to Jersey Gardens but Fifi was not having any part of shopping today so needless to say we had to leave fairly quickly. Then Daddy took us to eat at an awesome Portuguese Restaurant where we ate so much and watched some Futbol which was great, and then we headed home for an early night.

I must say this was the best weekend i think i had all year. Mainly because DH was participating and just having family time with the baby. I hope this continues for a long time!

Wow Wow Wubbzy!!!!!! More teeth!!!!!

So this post is not about Wow Wow Wubbzy but i just love saying that because it's one of Fifi's favorites to watch...She always starts shiking and dancing as soon as I put it on !!!! An I would like to say I am really in WOW mode right now because as some of you may remember she was teething and I was miserable ....Well I know her top teeth finally came through right after that week of crying . Well today she threw her head back in laughter and not only were the top ones there but the ones right next to the front teeth were also there !!!!!!!!!!!!! No wonder my baby was crying so much she got 4 teeth all at the same time!

Think of a Name!

Some of you know that I make baby bows and clippies for Fifi.....and some of my friends too. I am planning on really opening a business online but I need a name!!!! I really want something that says "high end" .....like a name that incorporates the words "posh," or "couture" even couture spelled with a "k" or something. The only problem is that everything I can come up with is already taken. I also don't want someting too long or too short! Someone please help. Maybe I will make a contest out of it if I get enough suggestions.

Trick or Treat???/

I know this is a little bit early but I wanted some advice from anyone who is in church (practicing). I grew up Catholic celebrating Halloween not as anything religious (I didn’t have a clue about the history of the day) and we always decorated and went trick-or-treating and dressed up. We always had so much fun!!!!

I am now a member of the Pentecostal church where celebrating Halloween is something you are not supposed to do. Most people keep their kids home from school that day so that they won’t feel left out while the other kids celebrate. I figured that it was because Halloween originated from Pagan rituals and culture…….but it’s more so because death and gore and demons and things are being glorified and celebrated.

So anyways my niece, Fifi’s godmother (who is catholic) wants to have a huge Halloween Party at the clubhouse in my apartment complex. I want to but I am torn…….i have decided to let Fifi participate in Halloween as she gets older because I thinks it’s a fun day for kids as long as she doesn’t decide to be a demon or something……I just don’t know what to do about the party ……I won’t invite anyone from church obviously but I feel very guilty about doing this. I don’t know ….Any advice from anyone would be helpful.
