It is 2012! You know, I have never thought anything special about the start of a new year. I know lots of people make resolutions and think of it as a "new start" and such. But, me, I just like the countdown and then it is done and over with. I just look at a new year as a continuation of my life. Not that that isn't good. But, I just don't signify this time of year as anything more important or special than, say, June.
But, five years ago, that all changed. I now have a reason to make New Years Eve special. My first daughter, Annabella, was born. I rang in the New Year in a hospital room after having one of the most perfect babies in the world. She is my NYE, tax deduction baby! :)
Saturday we had a party for her. Complete with a pinata and all! You can see how we celebrated.
For the rest of the birthday party pictures. Check out my flickr page.
On Sunday we chanced it (not sure if things would be open...some places weren't) and went to Aguascalientes. Every since getting back from the States two months ago, Bella has been asking if we could take her to McDonald's. So why not continue her birthday celebration the day after her birthday.
The McDonald's is right next to the Wal-Mart. And, there is still a big Christmas tree in the parking lot. The girls saw it and wanted to get a picture with it.
Then, we headed across the street to the mall. Bella said she wanted to pick out some new shoes. So, she found some she liked, which wasn't a hard task. The girl is shoe crazy.
I figured Emily should be able to pick some shoes out, too. Of course she wanted blue shoes. Jorge tried to get her to pick the pink ones. But, he should have known better. :)
Emily looks super cute in her Converse All Stars. And, Bella is girly as ever in her pink flats.
It was a fun weekend. Now that the holidays and a birthday is past, we can get back into our regular routine. Hope everyone had a good weekend!
