1. What is your holiday wish for your family?

When the girls wake us up we head to the Christmas tree to open presents. After they open all the presents then I head to the kitchen to make breakfast.

3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish for yourself, what would it be?
Oh, that would so be a bigger house!

4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money?
I try and play games that are fun with the girls.

5. What games did you play with your family growing up?
We used to play a lot of card games especially Hawaiian Rummy! That was my fave!

6. What holiday tradition have you carried on from your own childhood?
That would have to be opening presents as soon as we get up.

I would love to take the girls to Disney World!

Our Breast Cancer Support!

I know I didn't talk at all last month about Breast Cancer Awareness, but I would love to right now!! A local hair place did an amazing event! For $5 you can get your hair highlighted pink to support our Yolanda G. Barco Oncology Institute. So, my daughter and I had a girls day and went and got our hair highlighted PINK to support the cause.

Breast cancer has affected my family and I for a long time. When I was about 12 my aunt was diagnosed with a very aggressive type of cancer. She had 3 boy, the littlest was 3.... After being diagnosed she lived for about a year. One night my mom decided to take the littlest to our house to stay the night. Well, that was the night that she passed.... He usually slept with his mommy at night, so it was a blessing that he was with my mom. *She was waiting for him not to be there.*

It is just heart wrenching when someone so close is just gone.....
