Josh at work...

Thought I would share some video of Josh wrestling today. He finished third today, and is getting more confident every time he goes out. Was a long day for the girls sitting in the bleachers (and for my buns too), but they were real troopers. By the way, he has officially caught up with my weight class today. Enough said...

What do you think???

So I saw this on my friend Lisa's blog and thought it was too funny to not share. Those of you who have been to China, or traveled to a less developed country, will see the benefit of this new product, GoGirl. Check it out and let me know what you think, and whether or not I should purchase them for my trip back to China this summer!

Olympic Trials.....

Okay, so they may not be in the Olympics YET, but check out the video of the girls performing for us at their last tumbling class for this session. We just need to work on the silliness a bit:)

Friday Night Cartoon Classics...

So we seem to have started a tradition with the girls, as every Friday night lately we rent a classic cartoon (mostly Disney) to watch with the girls, and then they spend the next week re-enacting all their favorite parts, until they watch the next movie! Two weeks ago it was The Aristocats and they were cats all week, and this past Friday it was Peter Pan. Well Josh decided to take this weeks' re-enactment one step further, and make costumes for the girls. He ripped up an old t-shirt to make Kaia's shirt and the girls' head coverings. Jaelyn loved that Josh made for her a hook out of an old hanger for her arm. He then went out to the garage and pounded an old shower rod into swords, and they had a good old fashion sword fight in the living room.

Like a good mom, I shot video of the fighting scenes. Let's just say it was all fun and games until someone got hurt:( That made for funny video, but I decided to post the sweeter version (the one that makes me look like a better mom!).

This past weekend was a busy one for Kellen. After Thursday night's track jamboree, he headed to the Sold Out Conference with his youth group, then came back early Saturday evening to shower and shave, then rushed off to the TOLO dance. I snapped a shot of him talking on the phone, explaining to his date why he was going to be a tad late:)

The Lion King....

Our favorite things about the musical...
Joshua: The opening scene with the animals parading down the aisles, especially the giraffes.
Kellen: Mufasa saying "Don't turn your back on me Scar!"
Jaelyn: Simba and the song he sang about his fadder (father).
Kaia: The wildebeast.
Michael: The opening sequence.
Me: The gal that played Rafiki (yep, it's a girl in the musical, unlike a male in the movie). She had some funny lines and a terrific voice. There were too many other great things to list.

Back by Popular Demand....

For those of you who have been following my blog since its conception, you will remember this video. I had originally posted it in March of 2007, but I took it down because I submitted it to America's Funniest Home Videos. They sent me three legal papers to sign and submit, which I did, so I took it down "just in case." Well fast forward two years, and since it hasn't aired, I thought I would share it again.

To set the video up, I had just bought two large bottles of shampoo and conditioner that were still in the cellophane wrapping. It was all too quiet at the other end of the house, so I asked Kellen to check on the girls (they were 3 and almost 3 at the time), and I knew something was up when I heard the panicked "MOM!!!" As soon as I walked in, I held in a giggle, and I quickly told Kellen to go get the video camera. The rest speaks for itself....and yes, I can laugh now:)
