Welcome Little Z to the Church

The baptismal gown it the same one that I was baptized in...all of my children and nieces and nephews have also worn the same gown

We are so thankful to our generous and merciful Lord. A year ago this weekend we buried our little Tarcy, a year later we are blessed to have Lil Z Baptized. We truly feel so blessed not only for this precious life God has entrusted to us but also for all of our family and friends who who have been with us along the journey.

Z just kept staring at the Monsignor

We love Little Z's God Parents!

Sister Mary Servant of the Cross was there when our beautiful Tarcy was buried

And of course this day wouldn't be the same without family

getting thinner!

I have never been one for diets...this is a well known fact!
I LOVE TO doesn't help that my wife can cook sooo well and I travel as lot
a few of my friends have had a lot of success with a new diet....The 17 Day Diet .Broken up in 17 day cycles it's not too extreme nor is it complicated it seemed to me like your regular run of the mill carb/sugar restricted diet. Since so many of my friends have seen pretty good results I figure that it couldn't hurt to try. I figured that since I wasn't traveling until the baby came this was the perfect time. The results were in a word AMAZING...... I started out at 233lbs and I am now around 216!

I didn't think I would be able to continue this diet when I started to travel again I have since stopped this diet and joined Weight Watchers....BTW the weight has kept off!!

A wonderful surprise

This weekend we received a wonderful surprise..... Friday afternoon Mallu's dad called, he has called every day since little z was born, and we talked for a few minutes. But Mallu noticed that it was strange that he was calling from his cell and when he got off the phone he said "see you later."
Soon we heard a knock at the guessed it he paid us a surprise visit!

We are all very happy to spend a weekend with "Appupa" (grandpa)
