Hi Sweethearts! I missed you all! I can't believe we're back for our sixth season and I can't believe I'm the last original one standing! Thank God Dina is back with me! What a ride it's been. What a rollercoaster! It was hard to watch footage from last season and be reminded of the ugliness with my brother and sister-in-law, but it was just one small part of our lives and thankfully it's behind us. You can see that Joe and I have a huge family that loves and supports us no matter what, and who we love and support in return. And I think you can see that my brother Joey and Melissa and Joe and I are all in a really good place now, where we should be. Families have ups and downs, we all fight about stupid things, but at the end of the day, we're blood, and we love each other and we always will.

Isn't it crazy to look back and see all of that snow and ice? What a long, hard winter! I'm so glad it's summer now, my favorite season! Bring on the sunshine! My kids always make things brighter no matter what though. I'm glad you got to see more of them just hanging out, cooking breakfast, doing homework, twerking...you know all the normal things kids do... Gabriella is growing up so fast and is such a good, responsible older sister. I love when she helps Milania with her homework. Milania is Milania. Yes, she is definitely funnier than me! She's also a little caretaker and such a snuggler! Audriana is almost 5! Can you believe it? She wants to do everything her big sisters are doing, especially go to school. She goes to preschool and loves it, but she can't wait for kindergarten. And Gia, my oldest, is a teenager now! She is every bit of a teen: taller, beautiful, and super sensitive and emotional. She has such a big heart and so much love for everyone. I adore my girls and I'm so proud of them. So proud to be their mama.
