No idea

Carlos had no idea this morning when he planned a quick trip to the city dump, it would end up like this!

He smashed his pinkie finger with a metal barrel he was unloading into a tractor bucket. That is what you call BAD LUCK! And of all places to get a flesh wound. . . the nastiest dirtiest place on earth. . . the dump! It was too jagged to stitch back together, so they ended up gluing it. EWWWWWWWW!

Holiday Update

I have really neglected the blog lately. Sorry Mom! I will try to make it up to you by posting lots and lots of pictures! This year was a Gonzalez Christmas, so we packed up the car, kids, dog and presents and drove down to Orlando. We stayed at Carlos's sister's new house. One of the best features of Cendy and Robb's place was that every night at 9pm we had a clear view of Disney World's fireworks! And once again so sorry that Charlie tried to kill your dog!

On Christmas eve day Mamita and Papa Carlos surprised us with tickets to Sea World.

Here is all the gang before the Shamu show.

The kids LOVED Sea World, and we were able to stay all day because Charlie took a great nap right in his stroller.

Our very cautious Abby somehow talked her dad into taking her on this ride in the kiddie park.

Quickly she changed her mind!

The Merry-Go-Round was much more her speed.

Here is the under 48 inches bunch who could not ride the big roller coaster, and got to go home early for Christmas Eve dinner.

Christmas morning came around, and let's say that these kids must have been VERY good this year, because Santa treated them really well!

Christmas Day we went to Aunt Rina and Uncle Danillo's house for family fun. Here is proof my kids really do love each other. By the time I got around to take a picture from the front the moment was OVER!

Here is most of the gang. We had a great time together. Lots of great food, laughing and catching up! The Latin side of our family is very fun and LOUD!

While in Florida Carlos and I celebrated out 6th anniversary. We took advantage of Mamita and the aunts, and Carlos surprised me with a get-a-way at the Peabody Hotel. It was a great surprise and so nice to sleep-in the next morning!

Before we left town we visited Downtown Disney. With our kids being so young, to them it was as good as Disney World itself (and it's free!)

Here we are taking the Ferry from one side of Downtown Disney to the other.

Notice that these dogs ae made out of legos. Here is Charlie trying to climb on.

Abby got a kid proof digital camera for Christmas. Here she is taking pictures. Abby asked if she can put her pictures on the blog. I think I am going to have to start her own blog to showcase her talents.

The 7 hour drive home took us over 12 hours, we are excited to be home!

We had plans to go to a New Years Eve Party, but Charlie came down with strep throat. He really is the most pathetic creature when sick!

Charlie is on the mend, and we are looking forward to 2009!
