The Big 6!

I just have to say that Pete is Awesome!! Pete made this cake for Zach! Since Zach has started school he has learned about Pokemon. He has never watched a Pokemon movie or show, but he loves them and he wanted a Pokemon cake for his b-day. So Pete came up with this! Zach loved it of course!

This is Zach opening a Pokemon movie from Matt and Mandy! He was quite excited!
Here is Elora, Lacy (behind the wrapping paper), Ben, Danika, Matt and Mandy enjoying the party.
When Zach opened this present Elora yelled out "You've got a new car!!!" It was a cool kit to build your own truck with wood pieces (that have pre-drilled holes) and screws! Soo perfect for Zach who is always trying to build things!
So, Zach had a good b-day party!

Elora Singning!

video

Elora is always singing! All day! About everything she is doing! As I am typing this, she is singing about how Danika is 'posed to go to sleep to the tune of Hi-HO the cherrio (that's how she says it). So I figured it was time to record some of her favorite songs and share them. I love to see the Temple has been one of her favorites for about 2 years now, so she actually does know both the verses and always has to help me remember which verse comes first.

More Singing Elora

This song is dedicated to Grandpa Tim (since this song is about Tiny Tim).

In case you can't understand Elora and you don't know this song, it goes like this;

I have a little turtle.

His name is Tiny Tim.

I put him in the bathtub to see if he could swim.

He drank up all the water.

He ate up all the soap.

Now he's sick in bed, with bubbles is his throat.

Bubble, bubble, bubble.

Bubble, bubble, bubble.

Bubble, bubble, bubble......... POP!

Happy Halloween!

Elora was a pretty princess this year! She wouldn't even think about being anything else! Aunt Lacy gave her a princess hairdo. When we were getting ready to go she started to take off her dress. She was so excited when she realized that she could wear her outfit to the party and trick or treating.

Zach was a tough cowboy with spurs and everything.
Danika was raggedy Ann of course. She is such a cute little doll!
I dressed up like Lucille Ball, (minus the red hair) I even had a cool hat! But somehow no one took my pic. Oh well! Pete went as a working dad (which means he didn't dress up)!

We all had a good time even though we are all sick with snotty colds. The weather wasn't too cold this year and tons of people showed up for trunk or treating. The cultural hall was completely full during dinner!
