Sophia was an angel for the Preschool Christmas program- she did such a GOOD job- always singing and following the teachers cues so well. Arianna on the other hand.... was MARY (her wish came true) and had fun playing with her friend next to her and waving at mommy- she did a good job and it was funny to see the twins different personalities emerge! Aunt Emy, Val, Alex, Aunt Tina and Grandma and Grandpa all came to see the girls big production- thank you guys - it meant a lot to our family!!!
LOVE this picture of my GIRLS!!!
And my HANDSOME little man all dressed up for Christmas!!!
I frequently ask this question to my twins and Arianna has consistently replied "a cowgirl" for the past few months- maybe one day she'll have a horse ranch in the mountains and invite us all over for Christmas!!Sophia has had a plethora of responses with the most recent being a pilot- she can fly us to Arianna's ranch for Christmas!
No response from Ella, but I think she'd make a good birdie!
My old college roomie Val and her husband Tim and daughter Carly, were able to visit Colorado the first week of December. I LOVE when Tims job brings them here- we have SO much fun hanging out with our kids and catching up- I love Val SO much and wish we lived closer- we have a lot in common-all those late nights studying and goofing off in the dorm brought us close:) I will be posting some pics from our week of MANY activites... Here are a few to get started...
It is NOT Easter here at the Gomez house, this is one of the ways I keep my kids out of trouble and keep myself sane during these cold winter days. We get TONS of eggs through WIC (such a blessing) but we always have extras so I let the girls color eggs the other day- thank goodness I kept the supplies from last Easter!! They had fun...
We have gotten a few winter storms this December- this week has been freezing- usually we get a snow storm and the next day is in the 50's! Not this week- very cold like New England!!! (not something I miss) But, it is cute to see my kiddos all bundled up eating the snow.. well, actually I despise the winter- it takes FOREVER to get 4 kids ready to go out in negative temps and once I get them in the car, they start shedding their clothes while I am driving and then I need to rebundle them before we get out. Elijah screams in his snowsuit because his little arms can't move and Ella eats every peice of snow she can get her hands on- even brown snow on the floor of the post office and icicles hanging of the tire rims of the car- OH MY!!!!!!
Thanksgiving always makes me reflect on what I have to be THANKFUL for...
1. my salvation and relationship with my heavenly Father
2. my family- a husband who I love with all my heart, 3 little girls who make my heart so full of JOY, I can hardly breathe at times:) and a new little baby boy- an answer to prayer!!
3. my health and the health of my family and friends
4. God's daily provisions- He meets EVERY one of my needs and many of my wants:)
5. freedom and the opportunity to live in America- we are blessed...
6. my friends and church family- fellowship with believers is SO refreshing
7. my job at Gymboree- I LOVE it there
8. I could go on and on, but you get the picture- I AM BLESSED!
"Cowboy" says Ella with the potty seat on her head! This is becoming a nightly ritual- Ella walking into the living room around 10:30 and crying for JUICE!!!!!!!!!! No matter how much a stinker- always my SWEET BELLA!!
