Movie in the Park

I decided that Conner was ready for a movie in the park this year. In previous years, he was too much of a flight risk. We watched How to Train Your Dragon. It was FREEZING, Ryan had to go back home and get an arsenal of blankets. And there were technical difficulties with the screen, so we didn't get home until almost 11:30pm. We did it, it was fun, now we can move on. :o) The kids enjoyed all the free prizes more than the movie. :o)

MOM, I Stuck Up Here!

Conner & Sienna were playing together upstairs. I hear Conner screaming, "MOM! I stuck up here, HELP!" I assumed he climbed up Braden's bunk bed and was scared to climb down. I should have known better.

Conner hurt himself, hardly at all. Sienna played mother and bandaged his thumbs with toilet paper and scotch tape. :o)

Serve Your Fellow Man...

To pass off a requirement for Faith in God, R.J. decided to serve his brother a picnic! He made tacos & burritos with leftovers from Sienna's birthday dinner.

The End

Cross Walk Duty is over, yippee!! I enjoyed it most days, if they were sunny & breezy. But there were some pretty freezing cold days where I wondered what in the world I was thinking. And I felt a little bit dorky in my get up, but anything to keep the kidlets safe!!

Sienna's 8th Birthday!

I can't believe it, but my baby girl is 8! She woke up to birthday donuts, the movie Tangled, two shirts two headbands, and three pairs of shoes! She was very happy. Oh, almost forgot, she also got Justin Beiber baseball style fan cards. :o) We bought a couple of books to give to her classroom, and then for all her friends in class, we made these cds with all of her favorite songs, thanks Amy, for the suggestion, Sienna loved it! On the night of her birthday, we had a wonderful family dinner. We had yummy tacos, and then chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for dessert. Somehow I convinced Sienna to have a party with just one friend. And then somehow forgot to take any pictures with that friend! She got two barbie dolls from her friend and plays with them constantly. They had pizza for dinner, watched Tangled and ate popcorn and licorice, had a fashion show, played with barbies, and stayed up all. night. long. Then we had delicious french toast made by dad for breakfast. Sienna crashed at approximately 3:30pm and slept till about 10am the next day!

School Luau

The kids really love our end of the year school luau. Mostly they just want a snow cone. This year I ordered the kids meals because it said it came with an ice pop, which I mistakenly thought was a small sized snow cone. It was just a popsicle. And my kids may never forgive me. Each grade performs a "hula" dance. Sienna is always very into it... After specifically telling Braden to stand where I could get a good picture, he went as far away from me as possible, stinker... Every year the 5th graders are notorious for picking a silly, funny song. This year it was "Tiny Bubbles." At first I thought it was cute and funny, until I realized the song was about champagne, and then I was annoyed that anyone thought a song about getting drunk was appropriate for 11-year-old's... But it was funny watching R.J. totally getting into it...

Girls Night!!

Last month the boys had a Father/Sons Campout. And even though I requested pictures, Ryan did not take a single one!! And it was Conner's first time too. He just does not understand the importance of capturing memories. But anyway, I took pictures because me & Sienna had our first official girls night! Woo Hoo! We started with a fabulous dinner of Taco Bell. :o) We then went to the movies and saw Rio, which Sienna really liked. I can't get passed the gross slobbery dog, yuck. After the movie we went to Dairy Queen and got banana split blizzards. Sienna loved having a special night, and didn't want it to end. When we got home after 10pm she told me she wasn't tired at all and wanted to do some scrapbooking! Too bad I was done and sent her promptly to bed. :o)
