Fun Weekend

I went up to L.A. and had a fabulous Friday night with Mari and Rob, we had a delicious Italian dinner, and then went off to the Keane concert at the Wiltern. Here they are posing with their tickets. And here's a video Rob posted on YouTube. They sounded amazing! The crowd was totally into the music, it was a lot of fun!

The next day, back in the OC, the family and I went to a cute birthday party for Tristan, who turned one. Heather (and sister Holly) always get the most amazing cakes, check it out!

We Heart Disneyland

We took a quick trip to Disneyland one evening last week, didn't get the best photos but got the look of awe when Sam spotted his favorite friends in the parade...

Mickey and Minnie. Yahoo!

Anna enjoyed riding in the front of the Storybook Boat. So much fun squeezed into 90 minutes.

Winter in So. Cal

Yes, Anna created this picturesque scene in our backyard, made a nice photo op.

Sam likes piling in the laundry basket with his "friends", guess I should socialize him more with some real people. :)

Sam & Anna Dolls

Not only does Mari knit, she sews too! Look at what she made for Sam and Anna, personalized dolls!
Aren't they the cutest? And stylish as well!

Of course Sam confiscated both.

This is how Sam plays with them. He loves the dollies! Anna does too! We all do! Thanks Mari!
More dolly photos to follow, wanted to get this post up asap!

Scooter Girl

This was one of Anna's Christmas presents, she's only been on it a few times, but is motivated to learn so she can go scootering with her friend Gabbi.

More Disneyland Fun

"Oh Goofy, I love you but you're a little too close to me and you're much bigger than I thought you'd be," Sammy thinks.

"This could have been our Christmas card," mumurs Mommy.

"I'm a little nervous standing here in front of all these people, why did they choose me? Oh, it's all good, I think..." stresses Anna.

"Oh Mickey, you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, hey Mickey," sighs Sammy.

"Proud Papa moment," says Daddy.

New Year's 2007

On New Year's Day, Sammy's birthday of course, we went to a park and had some playground fun. Sam's new favorite thing is to go down the slide all on his own... Anna and Sam tried to coordinate their sliding...

I had to take photos of the deluxe Japanese breakfast my mom makes every year. I think she said she made around 15 dishes or so, cooking all day Sunday...

Here's the chef hard at work. Yes, she did have a spare moment to eat. Happy New Year everyone!

When Anna was two, she wore red everyday, and was wary of Disney characters...

At two years old, Sam will wear whatever we put on him. Still, he is also cautious around those same characters...

I'm hoping to post more Disney photos, as well as some New Year's Day pictures. Happy 2007!
