Mi Primo

Two weeks ago during our family reunion my cousin Hugo asked me to take some photos of him. I'd like to take this opportunity to not only show you who he is but also to tell you a little bit about him and the work that he has been doing with local Latino youth. Hugo is currently serving as the youth leader of the First Hispanic Baptist Church in Smithville, TN and organizing the Youth Union DUNAMIS throughout the whole state. The group will be holding its 12th Conference of Baptist Youth this August. The event is called IDENTIDAD, and its goal is to allow young people to identify with God through Jesus Christ. I just want to say that I'm really proud of him for turning his life around and inspiring others to do the same. Espero te gusten las fotos Hugo!

Week 18 - “Then & Now” Photo Challenge

Oh my gosh! I can't believe I'm posting this... but hey it's for fun, and we had FUN doing these. In fact my family and I are going to recreate other pictures just for kicks :-) This picture was taken a looong time ago!! around 1991..Steffy (my sister) was about 1.5 yrs old, so that means I was about 6..almost 7.. My mom just looks the same! We went to a studio in Mexico to have this picture done so that we could send it to my dad. Dad was in Tennessee at that time and mom wanted to send him a good picture of all of us. This photo cracks me up because you can see my mom is frustrated, because Steffy wouldn't sit still. I KNOW the feeling VERY WELL now that I have a 1.5 year old..oh my goodness... and look at me.. where was I looking? hahaha..and my bangs!! I almost cut them that short for the picture, but then I chickened out. Go to I Hear Faces to see more hilarious entries!!

ps..can you believe I found a sweater this similar..It belongs to Mrs. White, she's 97 years old.. I told you I'm really an old lady on the inside!! haha
