Thank you.

  On behalf of the Lopez/ Perez family, Manny and I would like to thank you all for your posts and your prayers for our niece Norma. Tragically, her body was found on Tuesday. We take whatever comfort we can in knowing that she is not suffering and was guided to Heaven by her Abuelita. Please continue to pray for her parents and her brothers and sisters. Unfortunately, this is only the beginning of toughest journey any parent will ever have to take. And please... if you have children or grandchildren... hug them a little longer and a little tighter today. Give them some extra besos. Randomly tell them you love them- and never ever take their laughter for granted.

Thank you again.

Mothers, touch your children,
Fathers, hug them tight,
Let them know you love them
morning, noon, and night.

Put your arms around them,
hold them near to you,
Feel the beating of their hearts,
the life that you made new.

Roll around the floor with them,
tease and laugh and play,
Listen to what they'll tell you,
they have so much to say.

Take time to get to know them,
see the colors in their eyes,
Appreciate that person
that deep inside them lies.

Let them run their fingers through your hair
and down your face,
Fill their hearts with words of praise,
make home their favorite place.

Cuddle with them on the couch
and watch a t.v. show,
Sing with them or share a book
and help their world to grow.

Take a walk into the park,
hold each other's hand,
Smell the flowers, feed the ducks,
build castles in the sand.

Mothers, touch your children,
Fathers, hug them tight,
Show them what a gift they are,
to love them feels so right.

MORENO VALLEY -- A $2,100 reward is being offered for information in the case of a 17-year old girl last seen leaving summer-school classes at Valley View High School. Authorities fear Norma Lopez may have been kidnapped.

Police and volunteers searched door-to-door in Riverside County Saturday for information about the teen's disappearance.

Riverside County Sheriff's detectives say Lopez left Valley View High School on foot Thursday morning and was expected to meet her younger sister and a friend at the girls' home in the 27000 block of Cottonwood Avenue.

Her family told police she normally walked home from school south on Nason Street to Dracaea Avenue and then took a shortcut through a field south to Cottonwood.

When she did not arrive home, her family searched for her for two hours, according to Riverside County Sheriff's Sgt. Joe Borja.

Borja says items belonging to Lopez were found in a field near her home and there also were signs of a possible struggle.

Is your name Summer? Cause you are HOT!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer! I have to say I am not yet counting down the days for Stella to go back to school... (although yesterday was a close call. :-) We had a bit of a "heatwave"... which I thought was what summer was all about. But then again I AM the one in the winter complaining that it is too cold!


I also wanted to let everyone know that we are re-vamping My mom (Capers of the Vintage Vixens) and I will keep you updated. It will be easier and more FUN for you to shop (How can it possibly be more fun? you ask... Oh but it can!) So we are super excited (that's me talking with a lisp that my mother never told me I had... long story) and can't wait to give you more details!!

And by the way- can you tell I found 
How did I ever post a picture without it?

Thanks for stopping by!
