Jalapeno Cilantro Chicken Alfredo

Well hello again! It has been almost 7 months since my last post! I have been a busy girl with cabi and dance classes....but mostly I have been pregnant! We are expecting our first, a girl on June 16th! It will take a few blog posts to get you updated so here is the picture updates for the end of 2015.

Emily is engaged! She and Alex got in October and they are getting married April 1st! An added bonus is they have bought a house 2 streets over, so we will be neighbors!
 We had another fabulous Keith family Thanksgiving! Mommasita and I are getting better at the whole Thanksgiving dinner day we will have it down pat, but for now we have fun learning.
 Here was what we posted to social media to announce our pregnancy. Can't wait for our sweet baby girl to arrive soon!
 It's a girl! Right after we told my mom she would be getting a granddaughter.
Christmas lovers in Albuquerque, NM.
 My sibs and my cousins!
 The fist signs of a baby bump! Hi little girl!
Christmas in Santa Fe, NM. we had a blast!
 Fun times with Jeffrey's side of the family in Fort Worth. We were team "belly balls."
