Finding things to do.

On Fridays and Saturdays from 6:00pm to 9:00pm the Mall by our house has something called "Family Night". We love it! They have all kinds of fun things for the kids.
Ashley enjoys holding Lucas. She is such a great sister!!

Ashley's favorite thing to do is ride the horses. On Friday and Saturday night it is FREE! and we take advantage of not having to pay for it. Isn't that great??

This is at the Sooner Mall. We went to Norman this weekend and I remembered the first time I went to this Mall and who would have thought that I will be there watching my kids play when my plan was to stay here in the States for only 3 months!!. You never know what life holds for you.

Ashley loves going to the pool at the YMCA.

This is me and Lucas at the Oklahoma City Airport. I was smiling I guess I had no clue how this trip was going to be with a 2 month old baby and a 2 year old toddler.

Overall Lucas was great. Tylenol works great when you double the dose...Just kidding..Well maybe not. hahaha

Here we are at the airport in Paraguay! My mom, sisters, and nieces and nephews came to pick us up. It was so fun to see all of them and especially to see Ashley again!! One of my sisters curled Ashley's hair and she looked great. She was excited to see me and to see Lucas; the only problem was that at first I couldn't understand a word she said and a couple of hours later I finally figured it out...she was speaking Spanish!!! Her Spanish is great only that now after being back for a month she is mixing it with some English and it sounds really cute.

At my parents' house we have a tradition that every time someone comes to visit or someone leaves on a trip we celebrate it with steak ( this is just another excuse to have steak which is my family's favorite dish. :) Another rule is that you always get dessert (if you ever wondered why it is that I like sweets so much now you know) Ashley definitely took advantage of that. My parents feed the kids first and anything left after the kids eat is given to the adults. I don't know if I like this rule that much; I sure did when I was a little girl.

This is Ashley and Jose. They had a great time together especially watching Discovery Kids.

This is at Mama Cristi's home. Here is Mama Cristi, Cristi, Ashley, Caro and Maricel.

This is Ashley and her cousin Martin. I think he is her favorite cousin. When they are together you better watch them because you never know what they are up to.

This is Mama Cristi and Ashley. Ashley misses her. She says,"I want subir avion Mama Cristi" (I want to go home on an airplane with Mama Cristi).

Here is Papa Luis, Ashley, Cristi and Martin.

This is my family!! Mom and Dad. Carina, me, Maricel, Ingrid and Carlos.

Mama Cristi ans Lucas.

To finish I wanted to include a picture of our friends from Oklahoma that have moved to Argentina about 3 months ago and we got to visit with them on our way back to the States. We didn't stay there very long but it was nice to visit with them and have the kids play together like they used to do. They picked us up, took us to their beautiful home, and took us back to the airport. They are a great family. Thanks, Andersons!

Our first Home!!

We just wanted to have a picture of our first home which was in Owasso, Ok. The minute I saw it I knew I wanted to live there. We miss the house and neighbors but we also like our house here in Moore. We just don't have the same cool neighbors:) These pictures were taken on the 18th of May as we were leaving our house:( The people buying it were inside checking EVERYTHING before signing the papers. I must admit that I had tears in my eyes as we drove away but I also knew that everything was going to be OK. Well you have to understand... I was 8 months pregnant and it was my birthday and I was homeless:) Just kidding; some great friends offered us to stay with them until we could move to our rental house and we are very grateful for them and their kindness.

What a year!

I finally graduated from OSU. May 2007

Our friends came to celebrate it with us and then we went out for more celebration!!

The Dorius Family came to see Lucas on the 4th of July.

Mama Cristi came all the way from Paraguay to help out with Ashley and the new baby. Thanks Mom:)

Heading to the Hospital. I was in so much pain.

I am holding Lucas for the first time. He is such a cute baby.

Dorius Family Introduction

Here I am trying to start my own blog and the computer I just don't get along. Anyways I have been inspired by a friend to do this and hopefully you all will enjoy it.
I will start posting pictures from various occasions so you can see what we have been up to. Tim as most of you know is going to OU Medical School and he is enjoying every minute there (except for tests!). I am busy with Ashley and Lucas. Ashley turned 2 years old on the 1st of June and she is doing great. Then on June 28 Lucas was born and a month later we moved to Moore, Ok. So far we have enjoyed Moore but I can't say much since I went to Paraguay to visit my family which was lots of fun. You could ask Ashley about Paraguay. She was there for 2 months!! My mom came to help and took Ashley with her to Paraguay so I could get things done with our move and Tim starting Medical School. It has been a great blessing to have my parents and Tim's parents help. We have been greatly blessed by having them as our parents. And Tim and I have been blessed as well with the children we have. They are great kids. I can't imagine my life without them. They are both very special and we are very glad to have them.

Isn't she cute?

I have enjoyed playing with Ashley more than ever! She has been such a great helper with Lucas. Here we are playing in her room and she is trying to entertain him. I don't know what he thought of it but I thought it was really cute.
