Finally! Some layouts to post!

I have been so terrible with uploading pics to my blog and gallery...sorry! But ya go.

I was scrapping Friday night, shout out to Alondra, Elia and Rochelle. I just recently met Elia on, and what do you know she lives right in my moms back yard, not even 5 minutes away! It was a pleasure to meet her and we were so grateful that she opened her home up to us to scrap! She fed us complaints! Elia is good in my book!

Well enjoy!
This pic was taken back a few days after Christmas...

And Today She Turns the Big #2!

Well today was Breanna's 2nd birthday and we celebrated pretty lo key today. Her cousins came down from Huntington Beach to celebrate with her, one of her Grandmas, one of her Grandpas (Big Reggie), Uncles, Aunties and more cousins.
Today she woke up today not feeling so great and my mom said she had a runny
nose! AHHH MANN!!! NO!!!!! I so dislike it when my baby girl is not feeling well. Anyway once she got around her cousins, she was being her crazy self again...after the company left she became clingy again..she is sooo fighting sleep right now.
Anyway, here are some pics to highlight her day!

Remembering Micheal

Man...I don't even know what to say. I was waiting for someone to say that he
was breathing again or in stable condition or something...but nothing came

Weird how fast news flys...from country to country...

One of my coworkers emailed me (from a different office), then my mom called me, checked Facebook, it was all over, all over MSN search,l TMZ, Enews, etc. =(

I figured if he was not breating when they picked him up it might not be good.

Micheal had a very hard life...poor guy. He has always been at the end of someones jokes, and I will admit Ive made a few too. Must admit...he was different. But alot of it had to do with his upbringing and being forced into the entertainment industry as a little boy.

He completely missed out on his childhood, didn't even have a chance! I mean, they guy has never really lead a "normal" life.

I truly hope the family keeps it together as best as they can, and no drama starts as it usually does in most families. I pray for peace in their family, and especially those children of his. How many did he have 2? 3?

Well my nana's bday was yesterday, I guess he was invited to her birthday party! And Farrah was the guest of honor...Ed was also among the list of attendees...I could only imagine the partying that went on up there!

Micheal will truly be missed! That man made some great music! WONDERFUL music! Party hits, just music you can 2 step to, swing your hips, that twirl-a-round, grab your crotch, HEEE HEEE music!

I will be making some tribut CD's for my coworkers...glad I have a few of his greatest hits.. =)

Whew. Rest in Peace Mike.....Farrah...and Ed. Lost 3 great entertainers in one week....too much to swallow.

My 25 cents... =)
More like a $1.00

Hope you all enjoyed the slideshow...

Today is Her Birthday...conversation with her....

I'm slightly jealous....cause I know you are eating cake and eating it with most wonderful man!

Well, today is your birthday and I sit hear shedding tears because I cannot physically hug you. Yes, you can say I am having my moment now.

You were and will always be the most greatest nana in the will definately not be forgotten.

Remember when we were sitting in the Dr's office one day once your visits started to occur...I made a promise to you. I promised that your people (Pupie & her two boys) will be taken care of. I promised you that they would be taken care of. I am carrying out that duty today and everyday. I know you are very proud of them as they have came a very long way....its been rough, but Pupie is getting use to living on her own and being independent. Its a struggle at times, but she is loving every minute of it. She is ever so thankful for us helping her to get to this point. Matthew is doing really well in school. =) Unfortuantely we had to take him out of private so that he could get the attention that he needed.

On the other hand, family dynamics aren't so great as you already know whats goin on. But I am sure you are not surprised of the events that took place shortly after you departed. You know it truly hurt me that there were such nasty accusations against me from other family members. People get so ugly after loved ones leave the earth. Its a shame. And I actually thought my family would be exempt from such craziness....NOT! As long as I KNOW that you KNOW whats up and that I would NEVER create any harm to anyone in my family. Never. But this too you already know.

I just wanted to say that I LOVE YOU and truly TRULY miss you. I think about you daily...most of the time at night or when Bre does something funny. Everytime she does something silly I just wish I could pick up the phone and call you and say, " NANA! Do you know what this girl just did!?" She has grown sooooo much and developing so well, and is the biggest clown ever. Well who's her parents? She learns from the best! Even though I can't pick up the phone to call you...I know you see everything. You are a witness to it all, and I know she keeps you in tears from laughing at the things she does.

4th of July is coming up, one of your favorite holidays. We will make sure Pupie and her boys pick out some fireworks as you always would pitch in for the big kahunas! Well, we don't have them this year, so we will just buy from the stands.

It has been so hard being without you. The holidays that have passed the birthday celebrations and so forth. We just celebrated moms birthday, mom and dads 23rd wedding anniversary and Big Reggies, Little Reggie and Stans Fathers Day in Vegas this past weekend. Everyone had a ball. Ebony flew down and even Tommy, Mickey, Thomas, his wife Nichole and their new baby girl Eilianna drove from Arizona to visit with us. She is too cute! The traffic from Vegas was horrific...6 long hours. Long enough to think about flying next time!

So...anyway...I just wanted to start my day off by telling you how much I miss you. But you already know that though. You left to fast....everythnig happened just too fast. I LOVE you go back to your birthday party sweet thang!

Happy Birthday Beautiful!

Your Grandaughter,

Coming Back with Words of Wisdom...

Written By Regina Brett of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland, Ohio

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me.. It is the most-requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90000 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone...
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret,you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful,beautiful or joyful.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie.
Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special..
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'
27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive everyone everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did
or didn't do.
35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd
grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
42. The best is yet to come.
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."
