As long as I can remember we always celebrated Christmas as a family. Except for the times when my brothers were in the military, of course. My family consisted of my two brothers. Ignore the bowl haircut (WTF was I thinking?!?!?!) Oh and as my children refer to them my "bullet proof glasses". I couldn't argue with that title.
In this picture I was about 8 weeks pregnant with Emilio and I remember feeling so sick this Christmas, constantly nauseous.
The first baby in our family was Andrea, my baby brothers daughter. The original princess before Shelby. And what a princess she was!!!
This year will be a very difficult for Andrea and her brother, Junior. Their mom lost her battle with Lupus earlier this year. As with all families who will experience the holidays without a loved one for the first time, I am thinking of you. My prayers are with you and so is my love.

over everything. I love this drama queen.
