Christmas 2009

Christmas Eve Photo

The girls at their Christmas Even dinner. We tried to make it special for them. They actually ate on my china--I know I'm brave. But we survived the dinner with no breaks:)

Analeah poses--and knows exactly what to do.

Opening their Christmas Even gift. David's mother made them rag dolls. In the back there is a zipper where they can put their pajamas. Analeah loved hers and sleeps with it, Sofi on the other hand, prefers to sleep with her little animals:)
Christmas morning, Analeah came to our room about 8am--I know can you believe they slept in! She said that she peeked and Santa had eaten her cookies, and left her a note. Santa wrapped their gifts this year, and we had such a fun time watching them open them. Sofi's facial expressions say it all. She actually understood what was going on, which made it more fun for Analeah also.



Gifts from Grandma and Grandpa!
Sofi opened the box, took one look at the bag full of miniature animals and left the rest of the box unopened. She was so excited and still sleeps with them. Great choice mom!
Analeah posing with her Sleeping Beauty head and a dress from Grandma. She is such a little beauty queen:)
Thanks everyone for the gifts, calls, and thoughts. We had a great Christmas and thank the Lord for the blessings he has given us this year. We've truly been blessed above all for our family and friends.

Silly Sofi

Sofi cracks me up! She has such a different personality than Analeah. She loves the color green, loves animals, spiderman, frogs, and horses. She loves pizza and french fries. I love how stubborn she is (most of the time) about what she wants, and that she always wants to be like Analeah, but different too. Here are a few photos of her at her best.

Sofi me hace reir. Tiene una personalidad muy diferente que Analeah. Le encanta el color verde, animales, spiderman, ranas y caballos. Le gusta pizza y papas fritas. Me gusta como ella sabe que quiere y no los cambia.


Sofi sets up her animals and has conversations with them. She sleeps with them. That is something Analeah NEVER plays with:)

Sofi pone sus animales en la casa. Le gusta hablar con ellos y dormir tambien. Analeah nunca quiere jugar con los animales.

This is her big cheesy grin. All you have to say is "show your teeth" and she'll smile for the camera.
Su sonrisa chistosa! Solo tengo que decir "Ensena tus dientes" y sonrie para la camara.

We often find her sleeping like this. I went to a RS meeting so David let the girls play a princess video game. Analeah actually plays and Sofi just plays with the extra controller.
Siempre encontramos dormida asi. Fui a un reunion de la iglesia entonces David las dejo a jugar un juego de princesa. Analeah juega y Sofi juego con el control extra.

I cut Sofi's hair. It was so thin and stringy that I just decided to chop it off one night after her bath. She looks so cute with her hair short.
Corte su pelo. Estaba muy escaso entonces decidi a cortar despues de su bano. Me gusta mucho su pelo corto:)

Happy Birthday Analeah

Analeah turned 5 this year! I can't believe my baby is growing up. She received a package from Grandma.
Analeah cumplio 5 anos en Octubre. No puedo creer que my bebe ya esta creciendo tan rapido. Recibio un regalo por correo de Abuelita. We found a dollhouse and polly pocket dolls on craigslist. She loves them and I love that we didn't have to pay full price:)
Encontramos una casa de barbi y unas munecas usadas. Las encanta mucha y me gusta que no tuvimos que pagar todo el precio.
Sisterly love.
El amor de hermanitas!

She is definitely a Daddy's girl!
Definitemente una nina que ama a su papi!
A little celebration at the park with some of her friends.

First Day of School!

A bittersweet day! Analeah was so excited to start Kindergarten! She's been talking about it all summer, but this week was a constant "when am I going to school" "Can I wear ... to school" She is going half a day, in the afternoon. David took his lunch break to be with us today. You can tell by the pictures how excited she is. Her she is in her school uniform:)

Hoy dia fue el primer dia de clases para Analeah. Estaba desmasiado animado--todo el verano pregunto cuando empezo clases. Va a ir en los tardes cada dia. Aqui esta con su uniforme. De las fotos pueden saber come estaba antes de los clases:)Saying goodbye to her sister. (The entire 3 hours Analeah was gone, Sofi kept asking to go "get Nuni")
Despidiendose de su hermanita (Durante los horas que Analeah no estaba, Sofi pregunto mil veces par ir y ver Nuni)


It was sooooo hot today, and the sun so bright she couldn't even look at the camera. Her building is behind her.
Hacia mucho calor hoy dia. El sol estaba bien fuerte que no podia ver al camera. Su escuela esta atras.
Getting her nametag
Recibiendo su placa con su nombre
Finding her cubby.
Encontrando su caja para poner todos sus cositas.


Her place on the mat--She will always be in the purple row--She was glad!

La alfombra donde tiene que sentarse cada dia. Tiene que sentarse en el morado.

Waving goodbye--no tears, just mine and David's
Despidiendose--no lagrimas, solo de mio y de David

Blowing a kiss to us as we walk out the door. Sniff Sniff.
Un besito:(((

A happy and a sad day. A new beginning for our little baby--now a big girl!
Un dia feliz, y triste. Una nueva tapa para nuestra bebe--ahora una nina grande!

Pictures at the Temple











Sleeping Beauty

Sofi usually gets tired in the afternoon, but rarely takes a nap. This is how I found her the other day.
Usualmente la Sofi tiene sueno el los tardes, pero no le gusta descansar. Encontre a Sofi el otro dia. Sleeping Standing Up
Se Durmio Parada



Analeah's Haircut

Analeah has been begging me to cut her hair all summer. It's just too hot. She refuses to wear it down. She hates when I comb it. She sweats at night. So finally I took her to Great Clips and they cut off 6-7 inches. She was so excited and felt so important! I wanted her to donate it, but it just wasn't long enough and she would have had to cut it really short to do so. So this is her experience:)
Analeah queria cortar su pelo todo el verano. Hace mucho calor, no le gusta su pelo suelto, no le gusto peinarse porque le duele. Finalmente, la lleve a la peluqueria. Cortaron 6-7 pulgadas. Estaba muy animada y se sintio muy importante. Yo queria que lo donara pero no tenia suficiente.



I still need to get a good shot of her with her new style:)
Todavia tengo que tomar una foto bueno con su nuevo estilo!

Our Ballerina!

Analeah has been in a ballet class for about a year. She finally had a recital that wasn't on Sunday. We were so excited for her. She did such a great job and we just wanted to share with you how proud we are of her.

When I Grow Up--Analeah is 4th from the right.

The Jungle Book--She is 3rd from the left.

It's been awhile!

Hello Everyone! Sorry for the 2 month lapse in posts. You know how it goes. Here are a few random shots of us during the last month or so.

Sofi and Analeah building robots with blocks.
Construyendo con bloques.
We loved having Aunt Cary come to visit. Thanks Cary, it was so great to spend some time with you. The girls think about you often.
Gracias a Cary para visitarnos. Las ninos te adoran!


The girls showing off their princess nightgowns. It all started when Analeah watched Peter Pan and noticed that Wendy had on a "night" dress. Ever since then, she has wanted one. She wears it every night! In this picture they are dancing. Silly girls.
Las ninas recibieron unos "vestidos de noche" (Las palabras de Analeah) Empezo cuando Analeah miro la pelicula "Peter Pan" y vio Wendy con sus pajamas.





Balboa Park

We went up to Balboa Park with David's Aunt and Cousin. The girls rode the merry go round, and absolutely loved it. I got dizzy:)
The girls playing in the water in one of their beautiful gardens.
Las ninas jugando en un fuente en los jardines en el parque.
