No more PEAS for ME!:)

So my mommy forced me to eat peas the other night with my dinner. I really don't like peas and have told her this a few times when she makes them.

This is what happened to me:

I guess that'll teach her to force me to eat things when I tell her that I don't like them.

Mommy took these pictures of me so we could always remember this awful moment. When I saw them I started to laugh. Was that really me? O-my goodness I looked so silly! I couldn't believe that's what I really looked like. But I guess it makes sense cuz Mommy and Joe did look really concerned.

So now all I can say is Thank Goodness I don't ever have to eat those nasty things again!

Geez, It's been a little while since I've had anything to say! Nothing really happens around here though, so that's why. Every day is kinda just like the rest. We wake up, take Joe to work, watch cartoons, eat, take naps, pick Joe up, get dinner ready, bath and go to bed. How boring is that?! I really miss going to school and playing with my friends. I keep asking mommy when she's going to go back to work so I can go to school, but she told me it still might be a while. She said that I won't be going back to my old school though, supposedly she's found another school that she'd like me to try. The time just doesn't come soon enough though, I'm ready to go NOW!

I'm doing better at being a big sister. I like helping my baby brother. He's pretty cute and always smiles at me when I talk to him. Hopefully soon he'll learn to talk back and play with me. However the other day I was trying to watch cartoons and he was screaming. So I showed him that I can be louder and yelled "Baby, you are driving me CRAZY!". Luckily I didn't get in trouble because mom heard me yell at him, but she just reminded me that when he acts like that it's cuz he needs his binky or some attention.

Hopefully soon I'll have something spectacular to write about. TTFN

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone!! Isn't Christmas great?! I had so much fun this year. We got to celebrate a day early this year. Santa said he'd visit us a day early so Joe could be with us since he works on Christmas day. It was awesome. I didn't think that Santa actually came to our house though because I never heard his bells ring in the night. But, you know what he did come, I must've just slept through them.

On Christmas Eve, Mommy and Joe said I could open one present and my Christmas Jammies. I love my jammies. I don't ever want to take them off. In fact, I haven't taken them off except to go to my Abuelos for a fancy night with my Daddy and Martha.

See how cute they are?!

My arrangements for Christmas is that I usually get to spend Christmas Eve with my Daddy and his family and then he takes me home early Christmas morning to be with my mommy. But this year since at mommy's house we celebrated a day early I was able to wake up Christmas morning at Daddy's and stay there and play for a while. It was crazy cuz I woke up to go potty and walked pass the living room and there was all these presents...I had no clue Santa had already came. It was awesome!! I got everything that I asked for and plenty more. I love Christmas. I'm gonna have so much fun playing with everything!
When does Santa come again? Tomorrow?

I've got a knack for decorating

Mommy and I put out all the decorations for Christmas and did the tree all by our selves...well Joe did have to help us because some of the lights didn't work and we didn't know how to fix it, but he did.

I had the most fun pulling out everything from the containers and looking at it and remembering where it went last year. Mommy said this year we could pick out somewhere else to put it.

Here's how we did.

Our pictures didn't turn out very clear, but too bad.

Thanksgiving Weekend

This year I was lucky enough to spend Thanksgiving with my Daddy and his family. We ate dinner at Tio Carlos'. I had a ton of fun playing with my cousins and friends. I love spending time with them. My daddy dropped me off after all that excitement so that I could go to Sherwood Hills with Mommy and her family on Friday. We always go up there the Friday after Thanksgiving for a fun day at breakfast, bowling, sometimes we go to a movie or shopping. Then we always head back to the Hotel to swim and have dinner and play games.
This year we had family pictures when we got back to the hotel and then it was off to the swimming pool. I had a blast splashing around and swimming in the kiddie pool, I even went in the big pool for a minute with Kimi and Jared, but decided the small pool is better for me.
We had a very fun and exciting Thanksgiving Weekend.

Some things I'm thankful for:
My family
TV & Movies
Baby Brother

What's in a name?

A few weeks ago Mommy was explaining to me that Joe's parents were going to come and visit us. She was trying to help me learn their names. Papa Joe and Gramma Cheryl. Gramma Cheryl would be easy to remember because that's Noah's (my boyfriend from PreSchool) gramma's name. Mom said Papa Joe should be easy to because his full name is Joseph Alan Winkler, same name as Joe's and Zaden's is Zaden Joseph-Alan Winkler. Huh, they all have the same name! I started feeling a little left out. So I explained to mom that I wanted my name to be the same as theirs. Ivy Joseph Alan Winkler Marie Monroy, sounds good don't you think? So that is my new name. Mom and Joe kinda laughed but I was completely serious. I think they've realized that I was serious because I correct them everytime they say my name. It's not Ivy Marie, it's Ivy Joseph Alan Winkler Marie Monroy. Mom said that's how I'll know when I'm in big trouble, when she spits out that full name I'm in for it.

Time flies when you're having fun

Wow! We have been so busy in our house, not really doing anything, but keeping busy none the less. I've been learning how to help mom out so much. I've started vacuuming, sweeping, cleaning toilets, and picking up everything from dirty diapers to stacks of newspapers. I've even learned how to do laundry. Mom says if she teaches me young, then I'll hopefully have it mastered much sooner then she can be lazy and just watch me do everything. Right now I think it's great, but maybe someday I'll get tired of being the "slave". But it makes me feel good to help mommy out so much. Plus she usually gets me a treat on the days that I'm such a big helper. The other day Joe got me hotdogs and bananas for helping out so good, I got a pink skirt one day, a sucker and stickers once, and I get lots of hugs and kisses and praise, so it's worth it.
Baby Zaden is growing so much. It's kinda hard for me to hold him now, he wiggles his head so much that mommy gets nervous when I am holding him. He's a little boring to play with right now. He doesn't know how to talk so he won't sing with me. I try to give him toys but he doesn't know how to even hold them very well. Hopefully soon he'll learn some tricks and be more fun to help take care of.
I've been getting better mommy says. I don't really understand what she's talking about, but all I do know is that I am getting in trouble less. But every now and then I do throw a fit and that gets me sent straight to my room. I hate it! Mom threatend to lock me in my room til I could act like a big girl the other day...I quickly reminded her that no she couldn't lock me in there cuz Joe took my door off to paint it. That made her smile at least.
Well, I'm having fun with mom and Zaden. We do a lot of Christmas shopping. Mom always has to remind me before entering the stores though that we are not shopping for me, she can only shop for me when I'm not with her so it'll be a surprise. I do really well. I never ask for anything, but I do enjoy pointing out some things that would be fun to add to my wish list. It's a good thing mom has me to help her pick out things. She's so indecisive, but I always help her choose the right things. I'm pretty good at that.

Here's some things on my wish list for Santa:
Pink Guitar
Pink Scooter
Pink Motorcycle
Pink Tractor
Multiplication cards
Hannah Montana doll, bag, guitar, notebook, jewelry box...anything with Hannah Montana
red purse
High School Musical Bag
