what a holiday! This is Adolfo performing at SouthWest All-Star Gymnastics 2008 Holiday Extravaganza, preparing for a flying round-off and completing it fearlessly. I'm such a goober mama, I was sobbing with tears streaming down my face so profusely that Paola became alarmed and wanted to cry too. But it was an enormous swelling pride that forced the tears and nothing more.
Paola really got into the gift receiving this year, it being her third Christmas. Normally, she feeds off her brother's energy, but for this occasion, she didn't even know he was in the room as she tore paper and shrieked with delight.
My little family is happy and healthy and we are blessed to have each other and our friends nearby. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday as well.
