Winter time

Well, winter has arrived. We had a "blizzard" a few days ago and then the past couple of days have been in the single digits to the teens temp wise. Here is how we are coping....

Eating some string cheese after coming in out of the cold (note the rosy nose and cheeks)

Bundled up for our walk.

Wearing a new snowman shirt to celebrate winter. :)

Saturday with Izzie

Starting off the day in her chair, the usual morning ritual.

Breakfast at Original Pancake House

Playing in one of our many huge piles of leaves.

Relaxing on the couch after a long day.

California trip....again

So Franz and I had the opportunity to interview for jobs in Ventura - so we jumped at the chance so we could visit family too! We had great weather - the only sad part was that Izzie's Grandma Esther happened to be out of town. She still loved seeing Ashley, Stanley and Grandpa Javier.

Beautiful sunset with beautiful Isabel.

Enjoying the beach...

Isabel loves her Grandpa Javier - I love how they have the exact same facial expressions in this picture. :)

This is the new dog - Buster. Isabel just loved the dog - especially giving it kisses by opening her mouth nice and wide for the dog to lick her tongue. :)

Sunday afternoon at Neptune's Net in Malibu for good seafood and hanging out with all the bikers.

Money and mommy

Isabel is close to walking, but still not yet....She can find her "button" and sometimes her nose. She is saying "go go go" a lot and imitates a lot and speaks in her own language a lot.

She knows where to find the good stuff....

Hanging out with mommy watching "Up"

Sound asleep after a long day.

End of October...

Wow, it has been a while since I have posted. Isabel can't keep still so it is hard to catch her in a picture! What is new? Getting closer to walking, but not quite yet, saying "ba-ba" for bottle and "na-na" for banana, but no mama or dada yet. :( She got her 1st tooth yesterday!! I know, a little late, but no worries.

Anyway, no big events recently, but here are some pics from the last few weeks...

Hanging out on her favorite chair.


A strawberry always makes you feel better.

Sharing her banana.

Maybe a little chocolate too!


Izzie wouldn't let me take a pic without putting something in her mouth - either posing for the pics or just the teething...

Since the Party....

I guess it is 2 weeks since Izzie's party....she unfortunately came down with a cold that seemed to last forever, then we spent this weekend at the cabin!! Some pics....

This is a picture of Izzie sick but still cute, hanging out with dad.

Showing her Latina side with beans and cheese on a tortilla.

Enjoying putting on a show while eating fruit, waffles and whipped cream at the cabin!!

Wearing a UCLA hat (she likes them after Stanford and Utah)

The family at the cabin!

Dirty Dash

Sorry, you have to look at a post about me and not Isabel for once (actually, still pics of Izzie in here). And all pics here are from Jess - I take no credit for them, but hopefully she doesn't mind me posting them. Anyway, last weekend I did the Dirty Dash race - basically a mud run up in Soldier Hollow that included obstacles, a big slide, and lots of mud. Here are some pics.

Team fairy wings and old navy boxers

My shorts look awesome, I know.

Heading to the finish line.

The final mud pit.

After the race.

Isabel was at the race cheering us on!!
