  1. your kids are hilarious- love them and miss them! and i will be one of those americans coming to see you all there! 🙂

  2. How precious! Although I must say, my favorite was Malaya saying that leaving Gabe in St. Louis would be best for everyone. Spoken like an older sister!

  3. Gotta love the views of the kids. Always original and surprising. Tell Rosie that this American will definitely come see you all.

  4. Love those kids of yours. Tell Mikayla I miss her, she’s a princess, Malaya…well she’s just a riot all the time, Rosie…she’s so inquisitive with those big brown eyes and millions of quesions; Gigi…awesome to watch her walking; the boys…they’re all adorable but still looking for one who favors Jose’s handsome looks…any chance of one in the Mole!
