Final 2006 shots

Anna's school performance, do you spot her in the back row chatting with a classmate?

Having fun in the jeep at the Santa Ana zoo, Sam looks a little too comfy in the driver's seat, keep your hands on the wheel...

Randy's 40th birthday party, softball game, where he was presented with a cardboard guitar, which will soon be replaced with a handmade one, with the money we all pitched in...

Plates piled high from Sushi 5, a treat with Mama's bonus money, a "conveyor belt" sushi restaurant, excellent. Read about Sushi 5 here.

Eating snacks in bed...

Looking forward to blogging more fun photos in 2007!

The Day After Christmas

Yes, these were taken the day after Christmas. We have been blessed with very nice weather recently. We went to the local zoo for some animal fun.

Sam loved the train and didn't want to get off.

Anna and I enjoyed it too.

Later that day Anna and I went to the beach with her friend Gabbi, while Sam napped (and Steve stayed home with him). The beach in December!

No, it wasn't bathing suit weather, but lots of fun to play in the sand and at the beach park and take in the beautiful views.

Christmas Day

Happy birthday to Jesus!
Here are the presents before they were opened, Anna is sitting on Steve's new coffee machine with assorted coffees!

Anna received the binoculars she asked for, Sam was quite smitten by this shape puzzle that "speaks"...

Mari and Rob, Yumi, and my parents came over for Christmas lunch. Lunch included a Honeybaked ham, macaroni and cheese, fried rice, sweet potato cups, noodle salad, spinach dip, and cupcakes and brownies for dessert. We barely had enough food, just kidding.

Holiday Happenings...

Here's our tree, with the cutie posing in front. A little sparse on the ornaments but every year we add a few to the collection.

Last weekend we went to Tasha's house for some cookie-making. Seven-layer bars, yum!

A couple of Fridays ago was Christmas caroling with our home fellowship group. Can you spot shy Sam in the background acting like he's hanging some ornaments?

All right, enough of the photo op, let's get moving...

Daddy made this buggy real comfy for me, I love going around the house in it.

Piggy-back rides are quite fun as well, some days my feet never touch the ground.

My Gym

We went to David's 3rd birthday party last weekend, at a place called My Gym. Lots of climbing apparatus, trampolines, and things to play with. There were also organized activities such as this parachute game!

Sammy tended to stay away from the crowds, he did like this super slow slide.

They even had a zip-line! Fortunately an adult held the kids while they zoomed by.
I'm already brainstorming about Anna's party...

Photo Ops

Getting Anna into a pretty dress for a Christmas photo is no problem...

But Sammy, oh man, always on the go.

In other news, this is the Enormous Christmas tree at Fashion Island, Anna and I went with Grandma and Yumi to check it out, it's beyond beautiful.

Da Crib

Every so often Sam and Anna like playing in Sam's crib. These are really cute expressions on their faces, maybe Steve can do some photoshop magic, change the background and such, and make this into a Christmas card.
