Sortir de la Clandestinité?

I know it has been a century since I have written. I guess time just flies by. Moral of the story is James and I now have our Associate's Degree from HCC. James and I are both attending USF in attaining our Bachelor's Degree. Rosie is almost 3 and can recognize 9 letters and recognizes the letter "y" as "yakitty yak". Rosie is our pride and joy and never ceases to amaze us. She says stuff like, "I got a great idea" and "Robyn's baby is perfect" without warning and blows us away with what she knows and understands. Rosie loves to dance, and I can't wait to get her into dance lessons. We are already planning her 3rd birthday party and probably her sweet sixteen not too long after that. James is still an amazing father and I am loving being a mom......maybe, just maybe I can attempt to update more often...maybe.

Bien, bien, je reçois le point

Daddy graduated from HCC with his Associates Degree!

We finally got our pictures that we won a year ago, yesterday

Like Mother like Daughter

Daddy starts at USF in a week to pursue his Bachelors Degree...and in a week on Tuesday he takes his test for naturalization.

This was Rosie's birthday cake for her 2nd birthday...fruit kabobs in a pineapple.

Rosie at her birthday party, look at how low her pants are....she was worn out after all the festivities.

Opening gifts after her birthday party that came in from Bubby and Zadie and Aunt Izzy and Amelia

I put Rosie in the sweater today, the same one she wore a year ago, and it still fit.

This was my favorite picture of us from that shoot....and I finished my semester with a 4.0, 2 more semesters till I finish my Associates.

Jour de Noël

Good Christmas Morning, I woke up at 8 and waiting anxiously for an hour before James and Rosie woke up.

Rosie, I think, thought the presents under the tree thing was a set up or a trick. I let her out of her room and she cried for me to pick her up, then I finally convinced her to come out into the living room (she saw the gifts the whole time). Once in the living room she hid behind my legs until I got her to run to her father where she did this timid face thing.

I mean really, does that look like a kid on Christmas morning?

So I handed her a stocking and she pulled out a baby orange thing and a baby tub of play dough and she was on her way, in the car. Notice the wrapped gifts still in her trunk?

It took us a while to get to this stage, the gift bag she is holding is empty, it held grandma's gift.

But she loved opening those gifts when she decided it was time to do so.

And she was a bit OCD when it came to opening them, she had to make sure all the wrapping was off and tape and all (kinda cute if you ask me, I would love it if she were a neat freak, because I am not)

see, every last bit of paper and tape

sharing her baby's bottle
 (notice my new laptop in the background in which I am composing this blog? There are also tickets to see Wicked back there, uber awesome!)
And no stroller is complete without a cat riding in it....Daddy's idea

The second stroller and pack n play were a gift from cousin McKenna and Allison, and it fits Rosie just right, with her baby bottle.

And that was our Christmas!
