This is what we did the last week of 2010.
Because we told everyone that each family had to present a talent and we never got around to doing it on Christmas...we did it on Sunday. Because I am now writing this in March I have forgotten the details so I'm sorry. This is the reason why we should write things down soon after they happen because we forget very easily and quickly.
Julio and his kids sang a song funny Christmas song.
Z and her kids sang a silly Christmas song also.
K & S performed a duet on the piano.
KC & I sang "Mary and Joseph".
Derick and Alex performed a piano duet.
Mami R. told us a favorite memory of Christmas.
Papi O. told us Christmas memories as a child.
Then Z. had a "special bonding activity" for us. We all sat in a circle and one person sat in the middle and we went around and said something we liked or admired about the person. Well here is C in the middle. It was very emotional for all of us.
Because the activity went a little long and G was getting bored. She used my camera and took a billion pictures of herself and others. Here is one of herself.
Here's another picture taken by G.
On Monday we went to take pictures but because it was so cold we took the pictures inside the capitol building. This one was taken by K and KC & I. Isn't it so cute?
We took grandparents with grandkids pictures and many more that D has not given to us yet :(
On Tuesday Julio had to go home so we took him to the airport and then drove up to Park City to the Lodge. I had these three boys with me and because we were up there a little sooner than everyone else we stopped by the Olympic Park. Of course I'm obsessed by the Olympics and I loved going here. I think the boys did too!
This is the cousins hanging out at the Lodge. We all spent the night there on Tuesday and we had a blast although the sleeping part was not that great. The next day there was a huge snow storm and it took us a while to get home because we had to drive really slow and careful.
This is the Birthday Girl G. We celebrated her birthday in Park City. This will be a separate post later.
This is New Years Eve. We are standing in front of the TV waiting for the ball to drop in NYC.
Our New Year's celebration included a chocolate fountain!!
The party crew! Ellie, G, and Derick.
Happy New Year 2011
