not so good made by the photographer.

The Christmas picture of 2007 was really beautiful.
Sometimes it can be difficult to tell with such young children if they are a girl or a boy. You have to look at the clothing, if they don't have long hair. However, those who receive the card, or are familiar with the SRF know that she is indeed a girl. I think that she looks really cute in this photo.

I think I know now who Infanta Sofia looks like. It's Grandpa Jesus Ortiz. Do you see it too?

Sofia's hair will grow longer soon. She was not born as much hair as her older sister. She has her mother's eyes and mouth (her mom's two best features), Cristina's face shape. Leonor looks very cute and sweet, in additon has this special something that would always have people look at her first.

Yes, Sofia will be as beautiful as her mommy but what i like more is that the two infantas are different, the genes are very well spread

The girls are so adorable. Sofia has her mom's eyes, Leonor is a little star, a good mix of her mom and grandma Sofia.

Thanks for the pictures.

Wonderful cards by all the family members. I, especially loved Infanta Cristina's Christmas card. Her kids are adorable, the boys look mischievous and with those grins, it feels like they are up to something. Irene is just too cute for words, she's like a little doll with her beautiful blonde hair and those gorgeous blue eyes.

Leonor and Sofia are adorable as well. I find Leonor to be a little bit cuter than Sofia. But, I am sure both of them will be heart-breakers when they grow up.

Infanta Elena's kids are precious.

Altogether, the King and Queen have the cutest grandchildren around.

Very nice cards this year, all the children look so cute and lovely. I especially like the card of Felipe and Letizia with their daughters, they look so relaxed and happy.

I love the pictures although I would love it better if their Majesties, Infanta Elena and the Dukes of Palma are included in the xmas cards. Leonor is such a Borbon whereas Sofia has the Ortiz genes. I adore Irene, her blonde hair and pink cheeks. Lovely children.

I wish Elena and Christina would make their cards look more "festive". It looks like the pictures were taken in the summer time. It doesn't reflect the holiday imo.
All the kids look cute though.

Lovely cards!
I simply adore Sofia with that beautiful long, blonde hair and don't even make me start about Leonor, she is simply the most lovable and beautiful princess I've ever seen!
I have to say that Felipe Froilans handwriting is AMAZING, I wish mine was that beautiful!

Great pics for this year! OK the Kings seem to be done with portraits but the rest is adorable. The Asturias' card is the best they've had so far in 5 years, nice family shoot with festive atmosphere. Glad to see a happy shot of Felipe & Victoria after what they had to go through this year.

Cristina and Inaki have the most beautiful and relaxed bunch of kids by a mile. They look happy, normal and like a close sibling unit, all four of them. They are lucky that they will be able to lead a pretty normal but still privileged life without having to answer to duty.
