Reader’s Digest Version -Jan/Feb 2009

I wanted to recap the year in one post, but since this year was not the best blogging year for me, I think I’ll do it in little condensed issues. So here is our January & February issue:

Hunter, Emma, and Mom all auditioned for Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach. Behind the kids are examples of the artwork in the show.

An “Emma & Mommy day” at the American Girl Place in LA. It was like going to heaven for her!

Rob tried out a new look, and so did Sabrina. Twinners!

Hannah celebrated her birthday wearing her pirate costume on the “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride. Cutest pirate ever!

I changed the look of our bedroom by getting a new duvet and dying our lilac colored bed skirt a chocolate brown.

Rob took a business trip to New York city and made a new friend at the Carnegie Deli.

We drove to Logan to visit all of the family there. Lots of fun, cousins, and food!

More cousins, snow, and sledding!

Uncle Gary made sure the kids all got a good ride.

Estee and Hannah with their Valentine kisses!

We thought we would have to leave Utah without ever seeing it snow. But on our last day it did, and we got to build snowmen.

Sabrina got her piggy cake for her birthday…

and a throne to sit on as she opened her presents!

Hannah and her pre-school friend Krista were ready for the whale watching  trip!

We saw many dolphins swimming next to our boat…

and we even saw a few whales! They’re harder to spot because they don’t jump out of the water like the dolphins.

And last, we went to a Valentines Day 80’s dance that was so rad! The kids had their own little party while the adults went crazy and reminisced the past.

    Great recap. I love the pictures. It looks like it was a great year with lots of fun memories. I want to comment on every picture but it would be a LONG comment. Your room looks so beautiful. Hannah is the CUTEST pirate ever, I agree. I need to do dates with the kids. I remember doing them when I was young and loved it.
