Family Photo

We took this photo on Sunday. It was an interesting session with the boys not too interested in participating. After a long while, they got better and we were able to get the photos. Thank you to Natan for his patience.

Austin's new mouth device

Austin wanted to show his new mouth piece. We open it everyday until his upper jaw lines up where it's supposed to be with the lower jaw. At first, it was hard, but now he got used to it and is doing well. He even had to learn to speak with it.

Austin wanted to show and tell!!

Happy Birthday Mom and Evanni!

Evanni turned one year old on Nov 17. Happy Birthday Evanni. Also, Mami's birthday was on the same day. Happy birthday Ita!

Race for a Cure in San Diego

Today I had the opportunity of walking in the Susan G. Komen foundation "race for a cure". It was a great experience and Lord willing plan to do it again next year. There was a ceremony for survivors and we all wore pink hats and pink survivor shirts. It was great!! I was just thanking God for my life and was a little bit emotional too. There was a lady that was a 55 year survivor! It gave me a lot of hope. It was a sobering moment looking around at all the ladies that had gone through what I had gone through, wow! It was also so sad to see little boys walking "in memory of their mommy". It just breaks your heart to see that...
Best of all, it made me realize even more how greatful I am to be alive and how important early detection is. How important family and friend support is and best of all, how important it is to have an Awesome God to believe in,when faced with trials.
Thank you Yami for going with me and thank you Babe for all your unconditional love towards me. Love you tons.

A day in the life of Lissette

My cousin Yamel challenged us to document our day through photos and I did. It was fun to do this project. I feel so thankful for everyday now more than ever. When I wake up, I thank God for a new day. I love being a stay at home MOM. It allows me to be active in Austin's school and I still do my side jobs that I really enjoy. The housework is never ending, but I am even thankful for that. Life is precious to me!! Enjoy! Tell me what you think.

I wake up everyday and read my Bible first thing. It's short, but powerful

I make the lunches for Ruben and Austin

I serve the boys their breakfast

I make the bed(yes! everyday)

I make my healthy fruit shake to hopefully maintain myself healthy

I empty the dishwasher to wash the dishes

dishes are washed

I set out the clothes for Adam

I fold the blanket so that Austin can make his own bed

I set out Austin's clothes

We get in the truck to leave the house by 7:30. I like to get to school early to see my friends and talk before it starts at 8 a.m

We go to Justin's house to pick him up

I stay in school from 8 to 8:30 in the playground with Adam and his friends on most days

On this particular day I went to Grandma's house to clean out some very old paperwork she had. This is the bag with all the trash

Tia Linette came over on this particular day that I was at Grandma's and we all went to see Grandpa

This is our dear grandpa

We put all these photos in his room so that he can see us anytime

Adam was eating a snack after we got home from school

On this day, since I went to grandma's, she gave me food so I did not have to make dinner

I tell Austin to practice his piano

I help Adam pick up his toys throughout the day

I have to do laundry throughout the day

I shredded more of the papers I took out from grandma's house

At the end of the day, I watch my home decorating shows and then I go to bed at about 11 p.m.
