I got this old Dell Inspiron B130 from my sister-in-law and I wanted to see if I could install Mac OS X on it.  Well, I could, but I also have to keep this paperclip in the VGA port all the time.  Not a great solution.  So tomorrow its Ubuntu.  I just wanted to see if this could be done.  It was fun, for a geek like me.


Samantha’s Baptism

Here is Michelle with Samantha waiting outside the church.

Here is a shot of Ryan (my nephew) and Melissa (my sister).

Here is a shot of the Father blessing Samantha.

The family watching an waiting in the pews.

A picture of the baptism cake.  We had over 50 people there and still had some cake left, it was huge!

We had a great time and was very glad that some many people could make it!

Samantha is One Month Old!

We have had a lot of visitors again in the past few weeks.  Mommy and Daddy took a lot of pictures.  Here is one of Samantha in her swing toy!

And this one is zoomed out so we can see her enjoying the movement of the swing.

Most of the Balderrama girls came to visit us as well.  Here is a bunch of shots with them holding Samantha.

Ann always wanted to hold Samantha more!

Eventually everyone got a chance to hold Samantha.

Today we took Samantha out for a little stroll in the neighborhood.  She wasn’t awake for most of it, but we did get some good photos.

Dad got his chance to hold Samantha too.

This next one is a good picture of me, but Samantha was starting to get fussy.

This one seems like a good shot to leave off with.

There are more pictures at our Picasa page.

Everyone Wants to Meet and Hold Samantha!

Samantha has had a lot of visitors last week and some this week already too.  Below is a picture of her cousin Charlie holding her.  From left to right is: Grandmama (Grace), Charlie, Samantha and Suzie.

Isela and Jonas also visited last Thursday when Suzie was here.  This is Isela holding Samantha.

And here is a shot with Jonas holding Samantha.  Jonas is the photographer who shot our wedding!  We can’t wait until he can snap some shots of Samantha!

Here is Michelle’s Aunt Ann who came to visit with her Aunt Mary Jo as well.  I even got to see them briefly when I came home from lunch.

Here is a good shot of both of the Aunts.  Are they fighting over who gets to hold Samantha?

Samantha really likes Aunt and Godmother Lisa!

Here is Uncle David putting together Samantha’s toy play area!  I can’t believe he fit in there!

Here is a picture of Samantha’s Aunt Lauren just before she went to work at Disneyland for Miley Cyrus’ 16th birthday.

And a shot of Grandpa (Jim) holding Samantha.

Lastly, one of my favorite times of the day.  When I get to hold and play with Samantha my beatiful little girl!
