Feliz Navidad


I'm currently in Reno with the kids and Jordan is flying in tonight. We're pretty excited to be back after almost 3 months. I don't know if I'll be able to post very much while we're here, but I just wanted to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and an awesome New Year!
My family (the Garcia's) took some family pictures a few weeks ago, which I stole from my sister's facebook account, and I thought I'd share that with you since I don't have OUR family pictures with me right now.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AGAIN!

Pues estamos de vuelta en Reno, despues de casi 3 meses de estar en Portland, Oregon. Mi esposo llega hoy en la noche y estamos sumamente felices de estar de nuevo con la familia. No estoy segura si podre escribir mucho en esta pagina, quizas despues de que pasen las fiestas, pero solo queriamos desearles a todos una muy Feliz Navidad y un muy Prospero Año nuevo
La Familia Garcia se tomo una foto familiar hace unas semanas, y queria mostrarla para que vieran lo bien que salieron todos, las de nosotros no las tengo conmigo pero despues las pondre aqui.
Feliz Navidad de Nuevo a todos!!

A very special thanksgiving

This year we spent thanksgiving in Portland, Oregon, since as many of you know, Jordan is attending chiropractic school. We were a little sad at first that we weren't going to be with our families in Reno, but we decided to make the best out of it and invited some of our friends to our home, cooked a turkey and we had a great time. I don't think we'll ever forget our first thanksgiving in Portland. Also it was my birthday a few days before,
and it was a great day, Jordan made me breakfast, gave me flowers, chocolates, a t-shirt from his school, and we had dinner at a chinese buffet and than we went home and I cut a yummy chocolate cake
with lots of candles that I made.
Here are some pictures:

Este año pasamos el "dia de accion de gracias" en la ciudad de Portland, Oregon, ya que como muchos de ustedes sabran, Jordan esta estudiando medicina quiropractica. Al principio nos entro un poco la tirisia, pero despues decidimos cocinar la cena tradicional-un pavo- e invitamos a unos amigos y fue todo un exito, ya que fue muy especial. Tambien unos dias antes celebramos mi cumpleaños, ya que Jordan me hizo desayuno, me compro flores, una camiseta, mis chocolates favoritos, me hizo una tarjetita y fuimos a cenar a un bufet chino, y partimos un pastelito
con un monton de velitas que yo hice.
Aqui hay algunas fotos.

at church, we got invited to a thanksgiving potluck with some of the chiropractic students. This is my friend Yusook and her daughter.
En la capilla, fuimos a una comida con algunos estudiantes y sus familias

Doesn't she look like me??

This is my mom (sister Garcia) holding me (Ruth) as a baby.
She can't remember how old I was in this picture...but she thinks about 3 months old
Ever since Rebeca was born, people told me that she looked like Jordan,
and I just couldn't believe and still don't believe it. So I wanted to show everyone the resemblance between my baby and I.
Desde que nacio Rebequita todos me decian que se parece a su papi y quize mostrar esta foto de mi mama y yo cuando era bebe. Creemos que tengo aqui como 3 meses.


This is Rebeca (Ruth's baby) at 3 months.
So what do you think?
Esta gordis es Rebequita, la hija de Ruth. Tiene 3 meses.
Que tal, nos parecemos??

Trick or Treat

This year Jordan and I were spider webs since Massey was a little spider and Rebeca a lady bug and spiders eat bugs. Anyway I thought that Jordan and I looked more like the Spider Queen and King; however when we went to our ward Halloween party, this girl asked me what I was and I said a spiderweb, then she said: ""oh I thought you were the grim reaper"....can you believe that? I laughed later.

Massey loved throwing bean bags into this pumpkin, he made all 3!
That kid had great aim!

So, Jordan was in the donut-eating contest...and guess who won...
JORDAN!
and he almost died, because it got stuck in his esophagus I think.. He survived though and got a gift certificate to Jamba Juice!!


After the party we decided to go trick or treating and a nice girl that was giving
out candy was really nice to take a picture of us.

So we came to this house and we see this grim reaper sitting on the porch, it looked pretty scary but I totally thought it was fake and then as we got closer, Jordan noticed that it was BREATHING!! So I totally got scared and told Jordan to go first. I looked at him for like 5 minutes, debating whether or not it was real.
He blew his cover when he started laughing. He got up at the end and that's when I started screaming and left to the next house.


Massey loved digging in bowls looking for the suckers

Halloween at the Zoo


On Saturday we got to go to the zoo with Josh and Whitney. They got one of us in for free since they have a season pass. It was awesome! We go some awesome videos:

The sea-lions were entertaining.

We got to see a polar bear doing all the stuff they're famous for (except kill things).

Me and my little lady bug.
I wanted to get video of the way Massey runs.

Sauvie Island

On Saturday we went to the pumpkin patch in Sauvie Island, which is 16.5 miles long and 6.5 miles wide, and has 26,000 acres, is the largest island along the Columbia River.
We went with 3 other couples and their kids, the weather was really nice when we left but when we got there it was raining A LOT, but it was pretty fun.
Este sabado pasado fuimos a un huerto de calabazas en una isla llamada Sauvie, la cual mide 16.5 millas de largo y 6.5 millas de ancho y tiene 26 mil acres, y es la isla mas grande a lo largo del rio columbia. Fuimos con otras 3 parejas y sus hijos y de ida estaba el clima bien bonito pero al llegar estaba lloviendo bien fuerte, pero aun nos divertimos mucho.

There was a little barn that had ducks, chickens, goats and a few other animals. Massey kept calling all the animals "guau guau", which is the noise a dog makes in spanish..it was so funny.
Habia un establo chico con varios animales y Massey a todo
le decia "gua, gua", hasta a los patos, nos dio mucha risa.
Whitney, Josh and Sabrina.

This was a little market, they had fresh produce and it was packed.
It reminded me a lot of Mexico.
Este era como un mercadito, y tenian verduras frescas, me recordo del mercadito
de Culiacan porque estaba retacado.
Oh, this is my cool double stroller, which I found on Craigslist last friday. A girl was selling for $60.00 and I offered $40.00 and she totally accepted, I couldn't believe it! it even has a cool steering wheel for Massey. It feels like I'm pushing a little train, it's actually kind of cool.
Esta es la carriola doble que compre el viernes pasado por $40.00, la muchacha que la vendia acepto mi oferta a pesar que la estaba vendiendo por $60.00. A Massey le encanta especialmente ya que tiene un manubrio chiquito que hace ruido. Parece que ando empujando un trenecito, bien chilo.


Some fun pictures

Jordan made this hat for Massey so that it could match with his snow suit, it's really cool looking, especially since Cedric told him of a different way he could crochet .
Jordan tejio este gorrito para Massey, para que le combinara con su trajecito de nieve que le compramos, que bonito le quedo no?
