Belated Birthday Post

On December 22nd our little Calvinator ( his nickname since birth, I think originally given by my Dad, silly I know, but he was a gigantic baby!) turned three! Our dear son has been a huge blessing in our lives. It is amazing once you have a second child how the enormous amounts of love you have in your heart for your first just simply doubles. Calvin has made for some interesting times here in the Zuniga household and has made this journey as a family even sweeter. Certainly never a dull moment to be had with him around. He keeps me on my toes and my mind sharp. Although staying one step ahead of him can be challenging at times I think his quick thinking and curiosity is what I like most about his character. Happy (belated) birthday Cal!

Ringing in 2009

We celebrated the last day of 2008 at my sister Gretchens new home. The kids and I bundled up and headed over for her first new years/ house warming party. Steven had to work the closing shift that night so the kids and I decided to try our hardest to make it to midnight.

We all enjoyed a huge homemade mexican food spread, (thanks Gretch!) and had our fill of fun, games and conversation with all of the guests.

We had a fun night and tried our best but by 10:30 PM,

we had one down and two more following closely behind.

So we said goodbye to the old 2008 about an hour too soon. But ended it with family, friends and a fun night to remember.
