Olivia turned One!

Hi!!! ; ) 
I've been trying to finish this post for a couple of days now.... not easy!  Keeping my posts up to date, is becoming harder and harder. I have so many things going on at the moment... including, having everybody with a cold! Hopefully, it won't be too long for the next one! : P 


Happy moments... 

Or not... ; )

Our precious Angel turned One! What a blessing she has been in our lives. She is such a sweet, funny & happy baby! We ❤ you Olivia!

On her birthday day, Marky sang to her and she was loving it! She was sitting in her big girl chair and dancing side to side... soooooooooo cute! 

The following weekend, we did a little something for her at home. ; )

I asked my sister if she could do a little doll and a bunny (Olivia was born on the year of the rabbit). She totally outdid herself!  I LOOOOVED it Sis, thank you soooo much! It looked just like her and her bunny! I want to use it every year! : P

Back in Seoul

Hi! : )

Life's been busy...

We celebrated Olivia's first birthday, dol (doljanchi or tol).  We flew to San Francisco the very next day. We met our friends. We had delicious all American style B.fast ... every day! We did as much as we could around the northern part of California... and I fell in love... We shopped. We got sick. We attended the most beautiful and happy wedding I've been to. Thank you David, Laura, Helen & Ken + 4 ; ). D & H's Mom and my beautiful Mami that flew in from PR to meet us there. We had THE best time! Now we are back in Seoul & so life goes on...

Marky is not happy....

Where is the Hotel? Where's abuela? Where are my friends? Where's uncle Dave? Where's Ken?.... Whyyyyy, why, why, whyyyyy.... Why are we here???? I don't want to go here?.... We where stuck with whinny Marky for 3 hours. After the 12 hour flight of horror... I'll leave it at, I'm glad I went to bed at 6:30 pm and got 8 straight hours of sleep... Wow... I'm old.

This is just a, "I'm baaack" type of a post, no pics, no exciting story. ; ) I now will start uploading and organizing the 3,000 pictures I took. As soon as I'm done with this, (and a HUGE pile of laundry), I'll tell you all about it. : )
