the best "hero" movie
Zorro Pictures, Images and Photos
I am watching Zorro right now. It is seriously one of the greatest movies ever. haha Well at least in my opinion it is.
When I was a kid David, Coryn and I used to always watch it. My mom even made my brother a zorro cape for fun. We would run around the house playing Zorro. My mom use to babysit our friends in the summer and this is what they would do. haha


These pictures always make me laugh. O I miss those days.

Fun Times with D.J.

Today I babysat my cousin D.J. along with my lovely cousin Jackie.

So I was being silly and began singing and making up a songs about the reasons I love D.J.

For example I said "I love D.J. because he is so funny. He has has cool shoes and always makes me smile. O I love D.J.

and then he started singing and saying "I love Estar because she has pretty eyelashes."

He does not say Esther even though he knows how. He purposely says Estar.

I said, "Really that's why you love me?"

and he just says, "yep Estar"

So anyways I was kind of sad that he didn't say anything like she reads to me or she plays games with me but I am not going to lie. My self esteem did go up a little when he said I had pretty eyelashes. Haha. Coming from a four year old that means alot.

So here is some of our evening.

This is what happens when you entertain a little boy. You end up wearing crazy things on your head.

D.J. wearing the fake hair.

4 year olds take pictures just a little too close. I think he blinded himself with the flash. haha
Got to love his wonderful Star Wars mask...

I love school right now. Senior year is the best. I have three electives, English, and Government. Because I have only two academic classes (that are very easy) I rarely am assigned any homework. This gives me time to do the things I love like sew, knit and crochet etc. So today with all my extra time I crocheted Coryn a cute little beret. She looks super cute in hats. Me not so much. Well tomorrow I will try to post some pictures of Coryn wearing it. I wanted to take some with her wearing it today but she is hard at work (she is working on a term paper) She has some tough classes right now. Junior year was the most difficult grade for me. But taking the hard classes when you are in 11th grade totally pays off when you are a senior. Anyway I need to stop rambling and go to sleep.

Winter Camp

I went to San Diego for Winter Camp a couple of weeks ago. I had a really great time. The weather was great and the beach houses had awesome ocean views. Here are a few pictures from the weekend.


This is taken from the beach house. Not to bad for camp. :]


Bryan and I


Fun times.

So it has been a year today since I lost my little Sombrita. I really can't believe it. The first few months after she died seemed like forever but now I can't believe it has been a year. At times I feel like Sombrita was just here. To me she was just the cutest little dog. I was heartbroken when she died. Honestly it was the saddest day of my life. Some people may read this and think how can that be the saddest thing that ever happened to someone. But I honestly loved that dog so much. We did so much together. She was always there. We use to watch movies together, play outside, just about everything. I mean when I use to do my homework she would always lay on my math book. It was so hard being alone at my house. I had never been home alone (with no dog at least) I think that was just about the saddest part. Even though she was just a little chihuahua she made me feel so safe. I cried so much after her death. Sometimes I still do. But so far today I have gone tearless. The only thing that kept and keeps me sane through this is God. But I just didn't understand why God would allow my little baby Sombra to die. I thought who would benefit from this? And why did she have to die in such a horrible way (my brother accidently ran over her.) But she died instantly. I am glad she did not have to suffer. I love that my parents were so comforting through all my grieving especially my mother. I would cry and think to myself, "O my gosh I need to get myself together she was just a dog"


To get over it I had to turn the situation into something positive. I thanked God that he put the wonderful dog in my life for nine years. He gave me something good to love and care for. Through this I realized how blessed I am. I thought to myself how wonderful my God is. He has given me everything I needed. If my dog dying is the saddest thing I have been through it goes to show that he has really blessed me. I meen I still have both sets of grandparents, my parents are still married, I live in a house, I have a car. The list goes on and on. Now I just want to share and use my blessings to help others in need.

Happy 18th Birthday Megan.

I still can't believe that I am 18. Even though my birthday was like 8 months ago. But every time one of my friends turns 18 I realize it more and more. It is just crazy to me. Childhood just went by way too fast. Well at least high school sure did.

So today I went to my lovely friend Megan's party.
Daniel, Gaby, Megan, and I.
I love these girls. We have been friends since when we were in diapers.
Jumper with Megan
Delicious chocolate cake.
Megan sure liked the cake.
Well it was another wonderful day and I am ready for bed.

Tire Swing

Today ABC and E (no D) went on a nice little hike to the top of a hill in San Dimas. It was really fun. Even though I whined a lot because I was wearing ballet flats which made it kind of difficult to walk up and down a steep hill. I was such a baby. I did almost fall like three times but I managed to break my fall by putting my hand on this prickly weed that made my palms bleed. (eww it really hurt) But besides that it was great. We are planning on going more often. O and there was this awesome tire swing. What a wonderful day.

O Brother

John David Carrera.
He is just about the coolest brother ever. Ten reasons I love and admire him.


1. He plays the guitar.
2. He is super laid-back. (but not the lazy kind of laid-back)
2. He loves The Office just as much as I do.
4. He listens to wonderful music.
5. He doesn't care what people think about him.
6. He use to build crazy things out of Knex when we were kids.
7. He keeps his car and room super clean (something I need help with)
8. He has really long sideburns (which I learned to like) and dresses really cool.
9. He use to play the most fun games with me when we were little. (we use to pretend our radio flyer wagon was a ship. It was so much fun)
10. He is caring and lives for the Lord.



what a goof.
I just love him.

I am 18 and my mom still tucks me in before bed...

I know. I know. That may sound a bit odd. But how can I pass up a hug and a kiss. I am a big time cuddler. I always need hugs to get me through my days. So every night my mother prays with Coryn and I before we go to sleep. She has been doing this for as long as I can remember. When I was around seven or eight years old I use to honestly think to myself, "How will I ever be able to fall asleep without my mama to tuck me in?" Haha. I use to actually worry about it. I wonder if my mother is trying to put a end to this tucking my sister and I in business because for the past year or so she has been forgetting. Coryn and I will be in our beds and we will have to yell "MOM come tuck us in" It is kind of sad when I think about it. We don't say please or anything. We just whine. Man we really need to grow up or at least ask nicer. Haha. I am glad this made me realize that. Well the reason I am writing this is because today my mother remembered to come tuck me in. Yay for my mama. I love her so much words really can not explain.

Baby Mia

Random fact about my schedule.

Every Tuesday night I babysit a few kids. But today I didn't have the usual group. I had baby Mia only. Well she isn't a baby anymore but I can't get use to just calling her Mia. Isn't she a cutie pie.


I just love this little girl to pieces.

Well thats all for today.


Sunday, March 15, 2009


A is for Alyse. My best friend. I love her tons. She is too cute and always has a way to make me laugh. She plays a crucial role in the ABCDE friendship.
B is for Bryan. He is like the younger brother I never had. I really love him like one. Good kid.
C is for Coryn. My favorite and only sister. Isn't she lovey. Look at those pearly whites. Model status. Love her more and more each day.
D is for David. My awesome brother. Although we do get on each others nerves often I could not love him anymore. I mean he is my big brother.
E is for Esther. I love the clan like a family. Which is not very hard seeing that half of them are really related to me. Haha

O we are currently searching for a F.

Davey Turns Six!


This is my cousin Davey. I love him so much. I had a wonderful time hanging out with the cousins. Family parties are the best.


I met my cousins Sarah and Becca's new puppies. They are so precious. There names are Emmett and Bubba. I will have to take Mimi over to meet her new cousins. Haha. But I don't know how well that will go seeing that Mimi is like triple there size. O and they are boy dogs. Maybe they should keep there distance.


Just another picture of cute little Emmett.


Jumper time!!
My girls on the jumper.


Davey hitting the Pinata.


Two of my favorite little boys. Evan and D.J.

Wonderful day with the best family ever.
Now its time for bed.

Mimi Caroline Button

So I have this puppy who I adore dearly. Her name is Mimi Caroline Button. But everyone calls her Mimi. You may ask why such a long name?
Well I chose Mimi because the first night with her she would not go Mimi's. I was constantly telling her go Mimi's but she wouldn't budge.
My mother insisted we name her Caroline after the Outkast song Roses. Yes my mom like Outkast. I would even go so far to say that she loves them. Haha. But I do too.
And as for button I just thought she was as cute as one. So we decided to put them all together.

Meet Miss Mimi Caroline Button.


Today Mimi is not looking as cute as a button anymore. But in my eyes she is adorable. It's so funny when you have an animal you just think it is the cutest thing in the world. Like your literally blinded to any unattractive features. But then when I look at pictures of my puppy I notice Mimi's odd peculiarities. Like her huge ears. I think to myself where did my absoulutely darling puppy go. I mean this picture below taken less then 3 months after the one above. I hope things go up for Mimi from here. Haha. But big ears or small ones I love her too much to care.

Yay First Post!

I love to journal and have filled up too many to count so I decided to start blogging. I dont know if anyone will every read these but if they dont that is totally okay. Writing is such a stress reliever. I think thats why I do it so often. To get my feelings on paper. Or the internet? I guess. O great now I sound really emotional. But I am not. Anyways...

I don't write very well. My mind is crazy and always in super random places and that is how my writing is. All mish mashed.

Im extremely tired but the scent of oatmeal cookies is keeping me awake. My mother is baking them right now. I just want to stay up so I can eat one. But by the time they are finished baking and cool off it will be far to late for me to stay awake. I am such a five year old. I am ready for bed at eight thirty. haha. I should just hit the hay. I am trying to eat healthy anyways.

Maybe cookies for breakfast tomorrow. Ugh but it will ruin my "healthy eating". Darn Oatmeal Cookies.
