We sent her a short "I love you and miss you" video last week - just me and the boys. But this week, since her 21st birthday is on Wednesday, September 16th, we sent her more. And then her Dad and their family did one as well. It's safe to say we bombarded her with birthday wishes, both written and animated.
To my surprise, she sent a couple of videos today as well and I wanted to share them below. Her Spanish sounds awesome and her companion's English does as well! They're freaking adorable and I will probably wear these videos out.
FYI: I found a Wurlitzer organ on a Facebook Utah Garage Sale page for $30! I had to buy it for her because it's in amazing condition and I thought it would be fun. Because $30. So we bought it, hurried home, I taught the boys how to play "Happy Birthday", and we created a few videos. Enjoy!
Happy Jack - after a ten minute piano lesson.
Squatch after watching HJ and then practicing for five minutes.
Mum after several years of piano lessons (and apparently after some heavy drugs).
Hna Paez and Hna Hill - to Mum - in Spanish. Someone? Anyone? Haha
Keni said her English is terrible and then Hna Paez says Keni will be home pronto but Keni disagrees. I think they talked about Hna Hill going home in April and Hna Paez going home in March. (These are all hefty assumptions since I speak zero Spanish).
I get big smooches from Keni and an "I love you" from Hna Paez.
I died it was so adorable!
To Mum - in English. How adorable are they? Hna Paez says, "Hi Hermana Kelly. How are you? I think you're the best mom to Sister Hill." Keni says, "My English sucks" and Hna Paez says, "Yeah, I uhhhh testify. But now her English is terrific."
"I love you Sister Kelly. You're the best."
"I love you, Mom."
To Pops - in Spanish. Again, it's anyone's guess as to what they're saying.
I could pick out that she said she's going to speak in Spanish and then she apologized.
(Lots of unknown beautiful language)
"Thank you for the hymn books in English." (Kendall and Valerie purchased mini hymnbooks in English for Keni's companion and also her last companion, Hna Fernandez)
"Thanks" came out of Keni and then she had to tell herself no and made herself begin again in Spanish. "Ciao."
Keni nicknamed her oldest brother "Squatch" because he's always been such a giant. He has always called her a midget, for obvious reasons.
Keni told Squatch that he and Hna Paez need to get married when all is said and done. I'd go for that! However, Hna Paez said no and I'm not sure the reason since it's SPANISH!!
Keni tried to send HJ's video but it wouldn't send. She said she'll try again next week. These videos made my day and I love technology!
But not as much as you, you see.
