Haircut Time for Al and Charlie

When the hair of my two oldest sons started to get a little shaggy, my wife Anita decided it was time for a haircut.

Al got to go first. Both boys are not fans of clippers, but they are getting better about tolerating them.

Gender Reveal for Baby Santana 8-17-19

When a family find out they are having a baby they naturally want to know if it is a boy or a girl. That desire becomes even more evident when you already have a child. For those that don’t want to wait until the child is born, they have a gender reveal party.

At a gender reveal party, a friend finds out the big secret first and devises a way to tell it to the expecting parents.

But, first you have to have a meal.
