Bowling Party

Last Friday Big Sis had a combined Birthday Party with a friend from school. Their birthday's are just a day apart. We had it at the local bowling alley. The kids had a blast. Lil Sis was awesome. I told her once to throw it a little harder. She proceeded to chuck the ball as hard are she could directly at the floor. The next time I showed her how to roll it between her legs. She then fell on her butt after rolling the ball away. So classic. Big Sis was pretty good. I guess the practice she had with my parents and her uncle during Christmas break helped.
Lil Sis right before falling on her butt!
Check out the perfect stance!

Random Photos

Every once in awhile I let the girls take my small camera to have some fun. I am always surprised at what they deem worthy to photograph. Sometimes the results aren't too flattering; my messy bedroom, my guilty pleasure (coke), dad's bad posture, and me in the bathroom (that definitely got erased!) But sometimes their stuff is pretty cool. Can you tell dad has been working really hard. We are making some progress on our backyard. Yeah!

What happens when...

your kids eat loads of sugar for breakfast...

Oh but those donuts tasted so good. Especially the fresh ones right off the conveyor belt. Yummm.

Hurray for Disneyland

We love that we can go to Disneyland this year with our passes. Big Sis asked me this morning. Why are kids so happy at Disneyland?

Lil Sis hates and I mean hates the Pirates of the Caribbean, but loves the Matterhorn. Really? The Yeti is a bit scary. We think we've figured out that she doesn't like the dark, the drop in the beginning, and the water splashing up.

M and I are excited that the girls can now go on almost all the rides, except Indiana Jones. No more kiddie rides for us, bring on the roller coasters!

Happy New Year

Thanks to some wonderful mysterious elves in Mission Viejo we enjoyed some tradtional English crackers. They pop when you open and contain a toy or treat as well as a fabulous crown. So fun. I think we will make these a tradition every year.

Happy New Year to everyone. We have had a wonderful 2009. It brought us a new home, the start of kindergarten, wonderful new friends, and many great family memories.
