We Have A Preschooler!!

August 23, 2014


I know I sound like every other mother, but I honestly don't know where the last 4 years went.

Mac and I dropped him off together for his first day. I managed not to cry, just got a little teary eyed as we left the class room.

But to be honest...I got a little panicky thinking...

Ok Hannah, you had 4 years with this precious boy, did you do enough for him? Is he ready to be alone at school all day? (It's 8:50-3:30 yall!! that's a long day!) Will he be polite? Obey his teacher? Make friends easily? Get made fun of? Eat enough lunch????

Ahhh, the list of a mom's worries go on and on, but my sweet husband reminded me it is only preschool, and that we have an amazing little kid, who is tougher and smarter than we give him credit for.

He has finished his first week, he loves it and he is doing great!!
Now I am adjusting to my new schedule at home with just me and this cutie...
Oh, and I can't handle the thought of dropping her off at preschool so she has already been told she can't grow up anymore, she is just to stay this way...little and adorable :)

Happy 32rd Birthday Mac!

April 26, 2014

Today is my husband's birthday, and in keeping with tradition, I made him a special birthday cake to celebrate.

This year, I chose a "taco" cake, afterall he is half mexican ;)


It was actually pretty easy to make.

First I bake a small round cake, cut it in half, and set the two sides up. Then I used icing for the "taco shell" and "sour cream".

The toppings are swedish fish cut to look like tomatoes, watermelon airheads cut to look like lettuce and the shredded cheese is starburst candies flattened and rolled out.

I used the left over watermelon airheads with some green icing to make guacamole dip, and flattened some extra starburst to make tortilla chips.
 I love my two goofy guys!

Happy Birthday babe! I love you more than you will ever know!

Happy Easter!

April 20, 2014

This is one of my favorite holidays, the day we celebrate our risen Savior!!

Everything in my life, my hope, my joy, my security, my reason for being is based on the fact that Jesus conquered the grave!!

That is the best reason to celebrate!

(by the way... this is the only time of the year you will see my husband in a tie, and one of the few times I wear a dress.)




Happy Easter from our family to yours, I hope you had a blessed day!

Sugar & Spice...

April 19, 2014

...and everything nice, that's what little girls are made of.

Last weekend our family and friends celebrated Laney's first birthday with a Sugar & Spice themed party.




In one word, it was ADORABLE. You can read more about it, and see more pictures of the party over at my craft blog.

They grow up so fast!

March 30, 2014

I know it sounds cliche...but seriously when it comes to children, they really do grow so fast!

This week my little boy turned 4 years old.

He changes so much every day! He now insists on calling me "Mom" instead of mommy, and "Dad" instead of daddy with Mac. Sniff, sniff...

When he turned 3, I started a tradition of giving him some interview questions, so I could see how much his answers would change as he got older.

(If you want to read his interview from age 3 click here.)

Here are the exact same questions again now at age 4:
 1. What is your favorite color? Green

      4. What is your favorite vegetable? Radish??

      6. What is your favorite movie? Arthur Christmas
      7. What is your favorite animal? Alligator

You can read all about his minion birthday party on my craft blog.

And last but not least...my baby girl turned 1 today!
Laney has brought so much joy to our home, and I seriously couldn't be more smitten by her charming little self. She also has her daddy wrapped around her finger! 

And don't let this picture fool you...she has a fiesty little attitude behind all that adorableness! 

Her birthday party will be in a few weeks, so I will post more then. 

Wishing you a Happy New Year...just a little late!

January 25, 2014

This post is pathetically late on ringing in the new year, but rest assured the Lucero family is alive and well, and we are all looking forward to what God has in store for us in 2014!!

Now let me fill everyone in on our family happenings since my last post....

We spent Christmas in Florida this year with my family. Elias had fun hanging out with his cousins (even if he was the only boy)
And spending time with his Nana, because she is the best!
...Laney was spoiled rotten by just about everyone she met.

It was her first trip to my Pensacola, and also her first Christmas.
Here are my little Luceros on Christmas morning...
After Christmas, Elias was a ringbearer in his babysitter's wedding. 

I was so nervous about this! I knew he would look adorable in his suit, but I wasn't sure he would be adorable with what he was supposed to do. 

I prayed quite a bit as he walked down that aisle :) But thankfully, he made it (with no tears) and he did a great job! 

He is definitely Mac's child, because he kept tugging at his suit and dress shirt, and asking when he could take it off. Tell me if this doesn't melt your heart...
Also this little ginger is a party animal! He LOVED dancing at the reception, he kept begging me to go out there with him, and he didn't want to leave the dance floor once he got on it! 

Here he is dancing with all the ladies...
We love our "Mere-Mere" and we are so happy for her and Dennis as they begin there new life together.
Lastly, Laney got to meet my dad's side of the family. She finally saw where her big dark eyes come from, and all her other "Sanders" features everyone talks about.

Here she is hanging out with my second cousin, Bentley, can you tell they are related?
Overall, it was a great trip! I loved spending time with all the people I love. 

I especially loved catching up with a few dear friends from high school, and I realized how much I missed being able to just sit down and talk to each of them. 

I never really make new years resolutions, but for this year, I did decide to be better at keeping in touch with these sweet friends, even if it is only through texts or emails. 

I hope you and yours had a very Merry Christmas!!

Happy Halloween!
