Who is Rosie?

For all you dolls out there wondering who is Rosie,
Watch this swinging video and find out
I usually fix my hair up on wash day like Rosie. I'll post one later.
Until then watch this video as Lisa does a great job of illustrating her video:)

So did you know who Rosie is?
I love the pin-up / Rock-a-Billy look.
I would love you see if you try the look.
I will post my look as Rosie, soon,
as I fix my hair as such, on wash day.
Just post your look and leave a comment so I know where to peek:)

Labor Day 2010

Today is Labor Day, I like Labor Day, an extra day of rest in honor of Labor. I sure needed the extra day. What did you do? BBQ, Shop, go camping or a mini vacation?
I spent the day with my little one and my niece, Olivia.
Ayla and I went to visit my brothers new restaurant at the
Pool Together in Mesa, Az.
We love the empanadas, gallo pinto, arroz con pollo de Costa Rica, and especially the variety of Latin America's sodas. My favorite, a Brazillian drink, Guarana.
As I was ready to leave, My brother and law, RJ, showed up with my nephew and niece.
Olivia ran straight to me and then noticed Ayla and wouldn't let go. It was so special.
Then Evan came and wouldn't let go of Ayla.
While Evan took off with Dad, Olivia, Ayla and I strolled around the market place.

Later we went to the book store and read books there.
Finished the day at McDonalds and called it a day.
It was a special day, spending time with my niece and my little girl.

Olivia is home!

I have so, been bad on face book and especially my blog.
I just noticed I have not updated my blog with Olivia's progress!

I want to thank everyone for their prayers. Olivia was diagnosed that she was not going to recover and had brain damage. Needless to say my sister was very upset and my brother-in-law, I have to hand it to him he would not leave Olivia's side. I did not believe the doctors, I had faith and said we have to keep trying and having faith. We have prayers coming in from everywhere. Olivia was drawing but would not speak. 'How could she have brain damage' I thought to my self. I told RJ, my brother in law to get a second opinion. I explained that patients have rights to second opinions.
It had been days since she has eaten. She would not eat. I started to feed her and she would spit it out. I would tell her, Olivia, 'this is macaroni and cheese, you love it. It's just weird at first.' So I tried it, and said 'mmmm'. So then she slowly tried it and boy did she tear it down. I couldn't catch up to the feeding.I was sure it was because of the tubes down her throat. She was probable afraid to swallow and speak.
They got a second opinion and sure enough, suddenly there was no brain damage, Olivia said "I love you mama" to my sister and within 24 hours later, they sent her home and Olivia was Okay.

She is now more active than before the drowning. She is back swimming and doesn't remember the whole ordeal. I know it is the faith and prayers from our family, friends, and all of those who read about Olivia and prayed for our family. Thank you!
