Stacy's Baby Shower ~ Jan 7, 2006

Stacy knew she was having a BOY! My Best Friend Tiffany who is a ultrasound technician scanned her. Dre, her husband and baby's father is serving in our U.S. Marine Corps. He is stationed in California and was informed that the baby would be a boy. He didn't believe it at first. He was soooooo excited. They both wanted a BOY!

Stacy got into the rubber duck theme real quick and couldn't get away from it so we did her shower in that theme. It actually was ADORABLE. Although Dre was not able to be here for the shower. His family was there. Thanks to all of Stacy's family and great friends for coming.

PS - Thanks Tina, Priscilla, Chrissy, & Rachelle!

My Family ...

Where do I begin? I think I have the BEST family in the WORLD. I have the NICEST and MOST CARING parents to start. My Brother and I don't always see eye to eye but life would be boring without him to talk about, lol. (still Love Ya Bro!) He gave me my nephew Richie whom I don't think I could live without. My Aunts and Uncles are AWESOME. My Grandma, bless her heart is still with us :0)

Family is the most important thing in the world! Treasure it as long as you have it!
You never know what tomorrow holds.

I can't thank my family enough for the LOVE and SUPPORT over my life.

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

NEW YEARS...HAPPY 2006!!!!!

It started as a trip from hell as Richie (My nephew) and I were driving on the turnpike when Richie informed me he had to throw up. So of course I had to pull off the side of the road. Luckily, he didn't get sick again and we made it to Brooksville to Carrie's for New Year's.

We cooked out with the Family. Made smores on the fire & Richie and I fell asleep before midnight, lol. Richie brought his guitar to sing us a few tunes. We loved it!

Thanks to Carrie & the Family for the stay!

Happy & Healthy New Year to EVERYONE!!!!!

Santa is the BEST.

Hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas.

MY 2ND TRIP TO HAWAII - 2005

It wasn't soon after Melissa left it seem like it was time for me to head out west to her side of the world. Its a VERY long and lonely flight out there. Over 12 hours to get there. Although Melissa & Jaxson were worth it. Now, this is my 2nd trip and both times Jason was gone on duty out of the country. :0( it was good to keep Melissa company since shes on the other side of the world.

While in Hawaii this time, we just went to the beach and dinner with Jaxson. Just relaxed! I did the tourist stuff the 1st time so this time I just wanted to spend time with them. Before you know it, it was time to come back home. Only stayed 1 week. Melissa, Jaxson & I left off for the airport. As many of us know... Melissa hates to drive, well she drove me to the airport and of course we go to the pickup instead of the drop off so the lady lets me get out real quick so once again I barely got a goodbye so i gave Melissa a hug and Jaxson a kiss in the car seat. They drove off and im going up the escaltor with my luggage. I stop to check my email and get a message on my phone from Melissa crying her eyes out that she already missed me. I will never forget that phone call as long as I live. I just wanted to tell her to come pick me up till Jason came home. Yet, she still had about 2 1/2 more months before Jason got home from Africa. Just her and Jaxson day in and day out. I give all my love and respect to Military families who have to be so far from their spouses, family & friends to sacrifice what a lot of us take for granted. FREEDOM. So thanks to the Dixon family for your sacrifices.

JAXSON'S 1ST TRIP TO FLORIDA! 2005

Melissa and Jaxson came to Florida for about 3 months to stay with family and friends while her husband Jason was sent to Africa for 6 months serving in our U.S. Marine Corps. Her sister and I picked her up from the airport and lil' Jaxson was only a couple months old. Jaxson and I bonded from the start. I am proud to call him my GODSON. They ended up staying with me the last month here and when it was time to go, Melissa almost missed the flight because people told us to go to the wrong terminal so we had to load back the luggage and drive around to the correct one and made it with about 20 minutes to spare. We barely got to say "Goodbye" - we were actually RUNNING through the airport with the baby. We knew that before she came to Florida I had already purchased my ticket to Hawaii to see her so it wasnt going to be long before I saw them again.

Here are some pics of Jaxson's 1st trip here.

DEREK'S BIRTH 5/10/05 - IT'S A BOY!!!!!!

Carrie went into labor on 5/9/05. However, they stopped her contractions until 6am when they broke her water and not 4 hours later, Derek was here. No medications! Fully natural. She made it look so easy.....SHE DID GREAT!!!!!! Frankie and I were there for the birth and I will tell you thats a TRUE miracle.
The baby was born Derek Francisco Portuondo ~9:58 a.m. ~ Memorial East Hospital

Seeing that whole experience can definitely freak someone out who hasnt had kids, but holding that bundle of joy puts it all in perspective.

Congrats to the Portuondo Family ~

Carrie's Baby Shower 4/30/05

Well, Rachelle and I put together Carrie's baby shower. Soooo many people came, I've never seen so many MEN and WOMAN at a baby shower. Just goes to show how much Carrie & Frankie are loved. They waited till the birth to find out if she was having a BOY or GIRL. It about drove everyone crazy. The shower turned out fabulous and she got everything she wanted.

Here are SOME pictures from her shower!

Enjoy :0) http://www.flickr.com/photos/dolphins06/sets/72157594200449308/
