Ringing In The New Year: Baller Style

31 Dec

Bc2I6RrIEAA4qIWHow did some of our faves ring in the New Year? Well, Marcelo started by posting this, but had to share quite a few more pictures. Turns out that it’s Caio’s birthday as well so the whole family was celebrating (Enzo must be asleep). And guess what, they added a new family member – a tiny puppy for Caio.

Sara is heavily pregnant, as you can see. Iker can barely wait for his baby so he’s hanging on to his friend’s kid for dear life. Mateo has been his surrogate baby for ages. He also posted a picture of the 12 grapes that are traditionally eaten at midnight in Spain. Excited to reach a million Instagram followers, he drew us a little picture.

The Albiol-Roig clan kept the grape tradition but substituted M&Ms. Yum. d18c1d5c727b11e3a622128130bd76d7_8Carlota, Alvaro, Alba & baby Raul posed for a family picture. It was just a year ago today that we first found out that he was on his way. I love his little old man face (and, of course, Albita’s).

The French contingent posted shots as well. Again, Varane went classic and Karim, well, he went…Karim. SMH. I can’t even with him.

And here are few little videos.  Iria, Diego & Zoe (The bonnets are back – hooray!), Outakes 1 & 2 from the Calleti, Marta & Paula Christmas Video (They can post bloopers, but Real Madrid can’t? Pfft!), The Alonso- Aranburu family year in review and Cesc & baby Lia performing a Catalan tradition of which I know very little.

And, of course, I left the best for last because this is the note I want to end the year on. Not only does Sergio Ramos own a shirt with dinosaurs on it, he thinks this is the PERFECT occasion to wear it. I’m starting to think that Pilar has an entire closet full of animal print goodies. Oy vey. Never change you two and please dress your baby as you would dress yourselves. I’m counting on that. (I’m imagining that if Xabi saw this picture on Twitter, he’s probably rocking back and forth and weeping in a corner).

    I know a 6-year old little boy who’d LOVE that shirt, Sergio.

    It’s a crazy day when you’re wearing a dino shirt with a vest and there’s still someone dressed worse than you …. Yes croissant, I’m looking at you!
    But please, keep going boys! So entertaining!

    And of course …. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!

    The first thing I thought when I saw that pic of Sergio and Pilar was, “There better be a post on HB&HB about this…” Of course you wouldn’t disappoint!

    New year, same fashion choices but just imagine him wearing that shirt and holding a baby in the same dinasaur onsie?

    Happy new year to everyone! Hope you all have a fantastic year ahead. It’s World Cup year!!! Xo

    here’s to a new year of questionable fashion choices, a moratorium on injuries, well contested matches and some new silverware for the trophy cabinet.

    as a side note: that dinosaur print is simply stunning. and guti is looking positively refined these days. what happened? lastly, pipita (and his jorts) — never change.

    O my lord Karim. What the hell is that.

    And then I see what Pony is wearing and I actually burst out laughing at your zingers. Never change Pony. Never change. I also know a lot of little 6yr old boys in the class that I teach who would love that shirt. LOLOL!!

    Dinosaurs?!? Oh dear.

    I love Iker’s little drawing. Here’s to a better year, mi capitan! Let’s just forget all about 2013.
