Parental Guidance is Suggested

Ok so Matt and I set up some internet security on our computers the other day because something questionable came up when Kate was looking up Harry Potter. The next day I tried to access my blog and it wouldn't let me without a password because apparently my blog is not suitable for all ages. With that in mind I give you more trouble with Kate and four letter words. Here's the background: In school the kids have been learning about Chinese New year. On day one they had Chinese food and they had fortune cookies. That night, for homework, they were supposed to make their own fortune cookies to give to their families and they were supposed to say something kind on them. This is what Kate's said -
Can't read it? I'll translate, "I love you, so here is a fuchin cookie." Ahh such kind words. Happy Chinese New year everybody and I hope you enjoy many "fuchin" cookies.

Guess what we did? We went to Disneyland this weekend. We promised the kids that we would go when we moved here, but then one life threatening illness after another and we still hadn't gone. So, the kids had Friday off from school and we decided it was time. It rained pretty much the entire time we were at Disneyland but it kept the lines short and we had so much fun. Ryne wasn't sure he was having a great time on all of the rides and tried to convince us that it was time to go home. I think he got the amusement park stink gene from Gran. On Saturday we went to the beach. When we woke up it was pouring rain but, by the time we made it to the beach the sun was out and it was lovely. This is the first time that my kids had ever been to the ocean. The waves took them out a couple of times and we saw a dead pelican on the beach, they loved it. Kate and Ryne thought the beach was even better than Disneyland. In fact Kate found a house across the street from Huntington Beach and can't believe we won't buy it. It was a great weekend!

New Years!

We love living here people come visit us, it's fabulous! The Moulder's came for New Years we went to a place called Opportunity Village and in it was a Magic Forest. They had a carousel, train, and an alpine slide. It was a little strange but the kids loved it.


Christmas Day

Christmas Eve

I know that I am so slow but here are our pictures from Christmas. We had a really fun Christmas and my parents were able to come the Henderson. This was the first Christmas with my parents in something like 8 years. We had a great time.

Tessie Tagged Me - Tag #4

Here is how the tag works, go to your 4th picture folder and then your 4th picture explain it and tag four people, here goes:
This is a picture of our last day in our house in Kansas. The truck was packed and we were loading stuff into the van when we looked across the street and saw our little neighbor Aurora. She was very sad, my kids ran over to say goodbye and I think this is when it hit them that we were moving. There were many tears. It was a sad day. We loved our time in Kansas our kids had great friends who we still miss very much.
There you have it, I tag Sarah, Amanda, Maria and Kristin.

I love this boy

Here is a conversation Ryne had with my dad on Christmas Eve:

Ryne: Sneeze
Papa Al: Ryne you just sneezed on my food.
Ryne: Well what do you expect Papa Al, I have a sore throat.

Needless to say my parents are both now sick. With what you may ask? A sore throat and they are sneezing.
