Look who's Fifteen

On Saturday we celebrated my sweet cousin Jessica's Fifteenth Birthday. I can't believe she is quince!! She is in high school and everything. It seems like just yesterday she was in first grade. Here are a few pictures of the wonderful party. It was awesome there was a taco man and everything.Yummy.

She is such a cutie!
We played fun games.
with all the cousins
and friends. (snuck a picture of Gabby too)
We ate delicious chocolate covered strawberries.
And I wore the bandanna with hair on it again. You may have seen me in it previously in another post. I got to entertain the little cousins.
How come he looks so much cuter in it?
I snuck a picture of cute little Evan during the party.
My lovely girlies!
I just love these family parties. I can't wait til the next.

Mi hermano

He is the best. Well when he is in a good mood he is. I am glad I managed to take a few pictures with him in his joyous mood.
No its not beer. He buys his favorite apple soda in bulk. Crazy kid.
I honestly have no idea what I am doing. But isn't his shirt cute? It reminds me of Charlie Brown so I had to buy it for him.
Love him soooo much.

I have been super busy with random stuff so I haven't posted for a long time but felt the need for a quick short one. Hopefully I will post more pictures of my nice long weekend tomorrow.

More fun times with D.J.

So on Saturday I went to L.A. with my mom and sister. It was really fun except for all the traffic getting there. We went shopping, ate pizza, and went to church. Fun times. Then I drove in a hour of traffic on the way back well my mom and sister slept.

After I went to babysit one of the coolest kids ever. My little cousin D.J. We took so many pictures to document our evening and morning.

This cupcake was so good.

His faces make me laugh.

Jessi and Jackie.

After the cupcake we played Star Wars.

Its kind of his new favorite thing.

Then it was about time for bed.

He makes me smile.

Just woke up. He was excited.

But I still wanted to sleep.

Then I went to jail...

Gosh I love this kid.

San Juan Capistrano

I decided to ditch school about three weeks ago. But don't worry my parents knew. In fact they were the people I spent the day with. Haha. You know your cool when you ditch high school to hang out with your parents...

We went to San Juan Capistrano to see the mission. I absolutely love history especially museums/historical sites so I had a wonderful time. After that we shopped around a bit and then went out to eat. It was a fantastic day with two of the most amazing people in the world. O I just can't describe how much I love them.<3

Here are some picture of the mission.

So beautiful.

There were so many pretty flowers.




I just love the arches.

My Mama and Me.

Cinco de Mayo

Can you believe my parents made my siblings and I do this? I remember taking this and thinking it was so embarrassing. Just knowing that all of my family and friends would have this picture with all their other Christmas cards. Yes they sent it out as a Christmas card. haha. But now this picture is more on the hilarious side. I am actually glad I have it. It is one of my cherished memories with my brother and sister. I just thought it would be perfect to share on Cinco de Mayo.

Testing Time...

I don't know why I get so nervous for tests but it is such a pain. So today I went to Cal Poly Pomona to take my placement test to find out if I will have to take remedial math and English courses. I have been dreading these tests all week.

I wake up at six thirty to get to the school by seven twenty. I then have to stand in a extremely long line and wait half an hour. The entire time I am telling myself that I have to good on these test so I can get out of some classes next year. Then I start getting extremely anxious so I start to think that I shouldn't stress and that if I do have to take those courses it is totally not a big deal. The line seems never ending. I hear one of the Cal Poly staff say the having to check in eleven hundred students. Crazy.

So then I finally get admitted into the test room. We are all seated in this small classroom filled with too many desks. The first thing we do is write an essay. Can I just say I nearly freaked out. I just could not think. Well I could think but not about the topic I was suppose to write about. When it comes to test the more I try to focus the more I end up thinking about random stuff like how I want to see a certain movie, or what I want to sew, or how my sister was doing on her SAT (she took the SAT at Charter Oak High today)I seriously thought about everything but the test. After about fifteen minutes of being in the classroom I began to freak out. I know I am so dramatic but I just felt like the room was so tiny and that I could not breath. Can you believe it I had to tell myself to take deep breaths. All over a silly little test. I just hate that these test can effect so much. Like what college you are going to or just your future in general. But I understand that it is really the only way to measure a students academic level. Ugh I just sike myself out so much before these test. I know the stress and stuff is all in my head but I don't know how to rid myself from that. I need some test taking strategies to prevent another one of these pathetic panics. I pray the Lord puts me in the classes that I need to be in. I am really excited that I got accepted to the college I want to go to and for theopportunity I was blessed with to pursue something I love.

O and the funny thing is that when Coryn came home I started telling her how horrible my testing was and in a cheerful and pleased voice she says,"Really, I think I did great today!"

O life...
