Thanksgiving With Family

Thanks everyone for such a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a fun time and the girls did too. I wish we had taken more pictures, but if any of you have some, please post so we can see them.

Gracias a mi familia por las vacaciones en Utah para El Dia de Accion de Gracias. Fuimos a la casa de mi hermano Clint. Hacia mucha fria, pero hicimos mucho y estaba muy divertido.

Analeah and Sofia --FRIO!

At the Restuarant! Que Rica!

We had to put this in here just for laughs. David took this picture in the bathroom. What a momento!

Pusimos esto para broma. Comimos en un restarante italiano que tenia estatuas de ninos y otras cosas--ya puede imaginar. David tomo esta foto en el bano del restarante. Es un fuente. Que chistoso.

To Make you Smile/Una Sonrisa Para Todos

So I bought matching shirts again. Analeah only smiles when I tell her to show her teeth, Our little beaver! Only Analeah can make Sofi smile like that.
Yo compre camisas iguales para las ninas, otra vez. Analeah solamenta da una sonrisa cuando digo "ensename tus dientes" Solamente Analeah puede ayudar a Sofi a sonreirse.

Nuestra Viaje a Mexico!!

Decidimos a ir a Mexico esta fin de semana. Hemos escuchado que si parquea su carro en los EEUU y camina a Mexico es mas facil, y menos tiempo. Buscamos en el internet, y es muy facil, o es lo que otros dicen.

Entonces fuimos ayer. Tomamos el camino equivocado y estabamos en Mexico antes que sabiamos lo que paso. Tomamos otra camino que fue horible con carros locos y mucha basura. No habia una salida entonces teniamos a ir por unas millas asi. No estabamos preparados para el cambio tan fuerte. Esperabamos que tijuana fue bonito para turistas. Eramos los Turistas turros! Finalmente encontramos una salida y fue a la ciudad otra vez. Sabemos que Tijuana ya tiene unas cosas bonitas pero no las vimos. Decidimos a regresar a los EEUU y venir cuando tenemos una guia o un mapa. Queremos regresar con mas preparacion! Encontramss el camino corecto y vimos esto

Esperamos por mas de una hora, que hemos escuchado que no es tan mal. A veces es mas de 3 horas. Entonces finalmente regresamos a nuestra California.

Compramos solamente una cosa, una guitarrita para analeah. David la negocio y Analeah le encanta

Our trip to Mexico!!!

So we decided to go to Mexico this weekend, just to see what there is to do, and to say that we've been. We had heard that if you park your car on the US side and then walk across, it is much easier. So we decided to go. We looked it up online, and it seemed very easy. They have some type of plaza just after you cross the border that you can buy things, and eat, etc.

Well . . . We had no idea where we were going, and the next thing we knew, we had missed the exit to park and we were in Mexico. The minute we crossed the border, the organzied I-5 became utter chaos. Soon we were on a road, with potholes and garbage everywhere... and no way to get off. We had no maps, and the drivers were driving fast and crazy (no staying in the lines) Oh, and we didn't have Mexican Car insurance!!!! AAAAGHGHHGH! Even though we've been to some pretty rough neighborhoods in Ecuador, we were not prepared for this complete change of lifestyle. We expected Tijuana to be at least tourist friendly, but, that was not the case. Now, we know that there are some beautiful beaches and things to do in Tijuana, they just weren't where we were. We took a side turn, and we were in the wrong part of town. We decided to just go back to the US, and come back to Mexico with someone who knows, or at least a map to lead us. We do want to go back, but just with a little more preparation!

Anyway, it took us awhile to find our way back to the main roads and then... we saw this... I didn't take this picture, but it is exactly how it looked. We waited in line for over an hour, which he have been told is not a bad time, sometimes it is up to three hours.
So we finally made it across and decided to go home. Such was our trip to Mexico.

We did buy a miniture guitar that David bargained for. It is a real guitar, just Nuni's size.


So Analeah finally learned how to write her A's. She now makes three dots and connects them. She was practicing on her whiteboard in squares that I had drawn. (Thats how I keep her busy. I make as many squares as I can and see how long it takes to draw A's in them.--Ha Ha I use reverse pscycology.
Finalmente Analeah aprendio a escribir la letra A. Hace tres puntos y los conecta. Yo hice cuadors para poner las letras. (Asi la mantango ocupado durante el dia. ji ji ji)
