Old Pictures Shared

This week, was a time of old pictures being shared.  My Aunt Mary has the best pictures and she shared them with family.  This is a 1st day of school  in front of our house.  Ready for Bishop High School.  I believe I was a Freshman.

Carmen, Dolores, Me, Jesse, Mary, and Lupe.  Imagine the expense my parents had with all of us in high school.  We also had two younger sisters in middle school.  They are Josie and Alma. 

Great memories.


Lupe & Mary with my Uncle, Jake’s, Sr. Jacket.  He was a football Player.


This was on Christmas Eve, we were all going out to a Christmas dance.  We had also made tamales all that day.  My Mom would make so many tamales and it took all 7 of us girls and some aunts & Mom.  Man, I hated tamales for a long long time.

This is me, Lupe, Dolores, and Mary.


This is a picture of our 8th Grade class in Driscoll, TX.  Go Dragons!


Great Memories!

Arianna, not so much.  She kept hiding from me but finally, I got her!   


They are so cute!  Love these Girls!!!! 

When they went out, Grandpa and I also had a date out with our Friends, Frank & Adela.  They invited us to a Casino Nite at the Church.  We had such a nice time out.  We really enjoyed ourselves and we also won at the card tables.  I played Blackjack with the Compadres and Manuel played 3 Card Poker.  What an awesome time we had.

Until next time!

Grandparents Day

On Friday, Sept. 11, Arianna invited us to celebrate Grandparents Day at her school.  Of course, we would not miss it for the world.  This was at 8:30 am so we headed out to Wilderness Oak really early in the morning.  We had a great time. 


I spotted her in the crowd and she had this big smile when she saw us.

A week before school started Arianna had a tonsillectomy.  She did great and had a very good recovery.  Here she is sleeping in recovery with her Teddy.4

They have such a good time playing with Quincy.  Here they carry him in a Bath & Body Works bag.

In Corpus Christi

Since we were in the area, we decided to stay in Corpus for a couple of days.  We spent time with My Brother Jesse and also with Manuel’s Brother, Robert.  We had a great view from our room. 






This What a Burger was in our view from our room.  This is a very unique 2 story What A Burger. 


I took a picture with the Founder of WhatA Burger!  Mr. Harmon Dobson….


Corpus is a very beautiful city.


My Brother, Jesse and his Wife came to have dinner with us.  We ate at Joe’s Crab Shack on Shoreline.




We were waiting for our waiter to come take our order when Mathew walks right up.  Mathew is Manuel’s Sister’s Grandson.  He was so sweet.  He told us we could order anything on the menu for half price.  Wow!  That was an awesome treat.  He also brought us an special appetizer he fixed, not even on the menu.  We are very thankful to him.  He was a great server!


We had a great window view, too.


The following day, Manuel’s Brother, Robert and his wife, Sylvia came to see us.  We had breakfast together and then we headed out to take a boat tour.


We really enjoyed the view from the boat. 




We really enjoyed out time in Corpus.  Until next time!
