Epcot 2005

We had tix to Epcot and we got to use them on a date for just Mike and mee. We left Bella with her babysitter and off we went to Epcot. We went "around the world" listening to storytellers tell about holidays in their country. We took pics with Papa Noel - Canada, Father Christmas - UK, La Befana - Italia, and the Monkey King - China (but I don;t think he brings presents - bleh!). Anyhow, I liked hearing the about the different traditions - in Germany they hide a pickle in the tree and the first kid to find it scores an extra present - cool, huh?

We spent Christmas down in Cape Coral with Mike's extended fam. I especially liked visiting Ft. Myers Beach.

Cool www finds: ; ;

  • How can I make our Blog bettter?
  • Today I search the internet to try to find ways to "personalize" the look and feel of this Blog. I want to get away from the same template that many other bloggers have. Just to give you the inside scoop, When you start to create your own blog you may choose from many templates already available. Since Erica nor I know diddy squat about HTML I knew the template was the way to go. I was able to copy and paste the link section to this blog so there's a pat on my back :) . But when I discovered how to do this I stumble onto editing part of the template, there I found out who created this template. Todd is his name and his blog What do I know is really neat! It has these "text widgets" that are very cool and useful. I tried to add them to this blog but It is mostly advance Html with Javascript and other code I don't know. But that could be the next step for this blog someday... someday really far into the future. Oh yeah let me not forget, if anyone knows how to make popup windows for links please let us know by posting a comment.

    Which of Santa's Reindeer are you?

    Erica is Cupid

    A total romantic, you're always crushing on a new reindeer.

    Why You're Naughty: You've caused so much drama, all the reindeers aren't speaking to each other.

    Why You're Nice: You have a knack for playing matchmaker. You even hooked Rudolph up!

  • 1st day of Christmas Vacay 2005
  • Hurray! We are on our first day of Christmas vacay 2005! I'm so excited because we'll be going to Disney, Sea World ( thanks K fam), the movies, and to South Florida (Pollo Riko - here I come!). The great thing about working at the same place is havign the same vacay days off. So, Mike's looking forward to sleeping in, and I'm looking forward to reading some good books (any suggestions?), getting some reading done for my grad class, and playing tourist.

    In other news ....this second pregnancy is going well despite the constant nausea. This baby kicks reaallllllly hard. It surprises me because Bella kicked hard but this baby seems a little more enthusiastic. I'm excited to have another baby join our family. It'll be fun ( and a lot of work) to have two in diapers.

    I have just three grad classes left til I graduate with my master's degree in TESOL. Then I'm looking forward to traveling and living abroad and putting that degree to good use. Japan, United Arab Emirates...we'll see where we'll head off to. Hey, if you can afford the ticket, you can come stay with us (after you clear the background check and we receive a deposit, of course ~ smile.)

    A fun new website I found: it's where you Read a Book, Release it into the Wild for some lucky person to find, and Repeat. Cool idea.

    All is well. -e

  • Beaware of the "Next Blog" Button
  • Since we last posted I have been searching these blogs of other similar blogs. I tried by clicking the "Next Blog" button on the top of our blog. Believing that blogs are group together by similar interests I was hoping to find other people kind of like us. I also thought if blogs were not link together at least I might then have neighbor I can vist next “door.” Well then I was surprise that both ideas I had were wrong and that the button takes you to a random blog. Because I feel this is a G blog with a bit of PG-13 for the grown-ups. I must warn some of you that the next blog you visit might be rated R. So please be warn!

  • Well this is it our first new post!
  • Who are we you might be wondering since you stumble on to this Blog. Well we (my wife and I) are just newly wed couple from Florida. My family is mostly Latin (Hispanic if you preferred) we were raised in the U.S. with a mix of cultures from Colombia, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Cuba, and now sprinkle in my brother-in-law who is Caucasian and Hawaiian you can see we are a melting pot. I hope this Blog evolves to be a forum where everyone in our family can come to, to read what’s going on and posts their thoughts and feeling with everyone. This is the first post as you can tell, so as time passes and we learn more, the entries to this blog will become more dynamic (as dynamic as blogs can get) and we will add pictures and links to some of our favorites spots on and off the Internet. Well write soon. Bye!
