~ La Familia Port A 2009 ~

Hola Familia ~

We know this sounds early but in actuality it really is not. I think that everyone has been reading the family blog and noticed the countdown for the coast trip to Port Aransas in July. With the way that the months have been flying by, 6 months really is not a long time to prepare for this. SO HERE GOES!!!!

We would like to get a family coast trip together and would like for both sides of the family to get together for somewhat of a family reunion type trip at the coast. We did this last year and had a great turn out and had alot of fun. The following is what we are looking at as far as details are concerned.

DATE: JULY 24, 25, 26 2009
ROOM COSTS: $420.00
Look for the "Deluxe Kitchen Unit"- this is a one bedroom- has 2 queen size beds in the bedroom and pull out sofa sleeper in the living room.

We have already reserved one whole building which consists of 10 rooms. So what we are really needing to know is how many families or people are going to go so that way if we need to get more rooms, we can. I know $420.00 sounds like alot for a room but when you look at it, depending on the family, you can fit as many as 8-10 people in one room. 2 people to each bed or more if you want and 2 people to the sleeper sofa and then sleeping bags for the kids or even blow up mattresses. You are more than welcome to ask the other family members that went last year regarding the rooms and they will tell you that these rooms are worth the money.

The money deadline for each room will be May 31, 2009- that will reserve your room for you and your family.

Everyone will be responsible for bringing their own food and drinks and liquor and beer for their rooms and families. There are bar-b-que pits there, where we can have a family bar-b-que and everyone bring items for this bar-b-que.

If you have any other questions please email me ~ Terri or Greg .

Again- this will be alot of fun for all and the area we will be staying at is very isolated so the kids can run around with no problems.

Luv Y'all like Cuz's

Family Christmas Party 08

Feliz Navidad La Familia Style!

Our Christmas party came and went and I think everyone had a great time! A big Thank You to Cuz Helen for welcoming all of us into her home! As y'all know Marjorie gets a little excited when presented with the opportunity to take a lot of pictures, so here they are! (Click on the word pictures) From the time we got to SA to when we got back to Austin she took 500 pictures ! Luckily she was able to scale it down to what we have now and it won't take you all day to view them ! I am the one who did the comments on all the pix so don't get mad at her (Thelma) ! We really hope maybe one of these Christmas's we can get the Cali Cuz's down here or maybe we could all go up there but for now we will just make do with pictures ! Thanks to everyone for bringing your favorite dishes and BIG Thanks to the other cook Joe ! I would also really like to say a Big Semper Fi Thank You to Cuz Louie for rounding everyone up for the group pic ! I dont think we could have done it without him ! AND Thanks to Ty ( I hope I spelled it right) for having the patience to take the group shot with 5 different cameras ! We really LOVE you guys and gals and hope you enjoy reading this blog and looking at all the pix ! ENJOY !

Since we were in town we also went to the Riverwalk and checked out the Alamo and Christmas Tree on Christmas Eve. It was so beautiful and not really crowded at all! If you would like to see more pictures of that night click here!

New Cuz's and My San Fran Visit

Hola Familia !

Ok I want to take this opportunity to introduce some new little cuz's to our family !

Sorry this one is kinda of late but Mama has been kinda busy and I didnt want to bug her for the info but she was nice enough to take some time to send me the info and pics so I would like to introduce Cuz Gabriel Federico born November 8th to Cuz Shanna !

I am also proud to announce the arrival of our newest Cuz on the East Coast.... Little Cuz Simone Emilia born December 9th to Cuz Tom Vasquez and Lisa Davis ! (when I figure out how to get the pic out of the pdf file I will update)

All parents and babies are doing well at last report and will all enjoy their First Christmas's together !


I just wanted to throw in a personal note, I visited my girls in San Francisco this past weekend and all are doing good and growing smart and healthy...I have started a tradition this year with Hannah's bday last month of taking them by themselves on their bdays for a Daddy-Daughter Dinner of their choice , its really nice to get them by themselves and just talk about whatever they want too and just have some time on our own. I took Faith to her's on friday and she chose Red Lobster just like her sister and we had lots of fun ! Here is the link to the pictures I took ! Enjoy ! ( Click on the word pictures)

Some news about the Family Christmas Party.....I have heard thru the grapevine that instead of having it at the "Party House" in Helotes this year it might be at the "Party House" at Nena's ! I am waiting for official word about this but as soon as I know I will let YOU know...I just wanted to give everyone a heads up so you wont be at Chata's christmas day on her porch wondering where everyone is ! Stay Tuned !

Luv Y'all like Cuz's
Cuz Andy & Cuz Marjorie
