Foxy Family

Halloween is around the corner and of course we are obsessing about costumes… but when you have your 4 year old daughter make the final executive decision, it gets a little complicated! It changed from being Elsa, to being a llama, to Katie Perry in the “Roar video”. Even though Katy Perry would have been so funny specially because she wanted her little sister to be the tiger from the music video. I finally got my way because we are going to be a fox family.” Yay!!


The inspiration is the Fantastic  Mr. Fox. I wish I could do a full-on mask but I’m afraid Arden (9 months old) would be too scared, so I found this cute mask tutorial from Handmade Charlotte.

Welcome to Everly’s Pizzeria!

Walk-ins welcome, the only catch… you have to make your own pizza! We had our little friends over making their own dinner and keeping those little fingers busy.

Pizza night1

We bought the dough and sauce from our local Italian market, Angelo’s in Belmont Shore, but Trader Joe’s carries pizza dough for about $3 as well as Pizza Sauce. For the cheese we used cheese sticks  (kid Friendly) and easy to use.

The pizza turned out great, and the kids ate every single piece!

1. Set oven to 450
2. Split the dough in 3 pieces
3. Using flour, start making a round shape with the dough
4. After you made a round shape for your pizza add the sauce and cheese.
5. Put in the oven for about 12 minutes and serve.


I’ve been putting off writing this post about our trip. Let’s just say it didn’t go as I planned.
After 2 long flights, we finally landed in Cusco. My girls did so well and they were happy to finally be on land.
Cusco is such a magical town, it always takes me back to my childhood. Even though Cusco is a tourist destination
and a little bit too expensive, it’s magical and beautiful and worth visiting.
This time I was flying for “La Garramada,”  a big family reunion with about 125 family members.
It was so great seeing family I hadn’t seen since I was probably 11 years old.
We visited the hacienda where my grandmother was born  in Oropesa, and it seems like that little town was stuck in time.
Cusco is located 11,200 ft above sea level and almost feels like you can touch the beautiful sky with your fingers.
I love this town so much, this is where I got married and where I baptized Everly, so it holds a special place in my heart.
People in this town are so friendly, there are always parades and delicious food.
But with that said… the weather can be brutal and I probably won’t take back an 8 month old baby again. We all got 
so sick after after the first week. We had a horrible cold, 104 fevers, a cough and all those wonderful things that come with being sick.
Here some pictures before we got sick.
