    Baby Mine…

    Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

    Ever since Joey was a baby, I used to sing this song to our little guys when they were babies. Zach even sings it with me now when I rock him before naptime. When I held our precious little Tiny Tim in the hospital, I sang this to him, too.   Thank you all for […]

    Only One More Sleep ‘Til Christmas

    Friday, December 24th, 2010

    One more sleep till Christmas. After 364 days of waiting, of preparing, of anticipating. We’ll decorate gingerbread houses in the morning, and then tonight have a Christmas Eve tea party after a traditional Cuban dinner of roast pork and black beans and rice, put on our red-and-white-striped pajamas, and all camp out in the boy’s […]

    I’m Back…and Christmas is Almost Here!

    Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

    Hello, everyone! I’m back! Pigeon Forge was amazing and our time there was amazing (and a big picture post is coming soon) but it’s so good to be home! This week has been super-hectic! We got back late Saturday night and then Sunday night we had such a fun caroling party at our church. It was […]

    Happy Independence Day!

    Sunday, July 4th, 2010

    Oh, say! can you see by the dawn’s early light What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming; Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight, O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that […]

    Happy Mother’s Day!

    Sunday, May 9th, 2010

    Mom and I, 1992 Before I took a breath, Before I took a step Unnumbered prayers were spoken– Were spoken just for me. And as I rested peacefully There in your loving arms, You dreamed of what my future would bring And what tomorrow would bring. My childhood days are gone, And time keeps moving […]

    Christ the Lord is Risen Today!

    Sunday, April 4th, 2010

    Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia! Earth and heaven in chorus say, Alleluia! Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia! Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia! Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia! Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia! Death in vain forbids him rise, Alleluia! Christ has opened paradise, Alleluia! Lives again […]

    Twenty-Three Years…

    Sunday, March 14th, 2010

    March 14th, 1987 Make of our hands one hand, Make of our hearts one heart, Make of our vows one last vow. Only death will part us now. Make of our lives one life, Day after day, one life. Now it begins, Now it starts. One hand, one heart Only death will part us now. […]

    One More Sleep Til’ Christmas

    Thursday, December 24th, 2009

    Here we are, Christmas Eve. An evening at my paternal grandmother’s, with my dad’s side of the family, opening presents, having fun, and of course, a big Cuban meal of roast pork, black beans and rice, and flan! And lots of talking. Cubans are known for that. One more sleep till Christmas. After 364 days […]

    Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

    Monday, December 14th, 2009

    Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is my very favorite Christmas song. There’s a difference between Christmas carols and Christmas songs. Christmas carols are about Christ, Christmas songs are about the season. Anyway. There’s the explanation. This song is special for a lot of different reasons. One, I love the song. By the way, I […]

    O Holy Night

    Friday, December 11th, 2009

    This is a lovely version of the song. I don’t listen to pop music, so I’m not a fan of all of Josh Groban’s music, but some of his more classical-style songs are absolutely amazing (his version of my favorite song, Somewhere, is just incredible). He has a gorgeous voice and his rendition of O Holy Night is so […]
