Heaven Help Us

Well, the inevitable happened Saturday. Our Houdini ripped a hole in her crib tent during 'nap' and hoisted herself up and over the tent and down to the floor. I never heard a big boom so I assume she never fell. Is she had it would have been about 5ft! What a monkey with some SERIOUS upper body strength!! Gymnastics here we come! The fact that we only gave a private club here and the issue of being a 1st grader to start may set us back but i think we have the next Mary Lou Retton on our hands! Except for the height factor....

She is now in her BGB (big girl bed) as our crib turns into a day bed. Yes she has escaped. Sunday night it was 7 times, tonight only 3!! I am going to make a push, however, for radiant floor heating, however as i got to experience a sleepless last half of the night on her floor. Brrrrrrr. Didn't help that it wad about -5. She was awake trying every measure to escape and play from 4am on but she eventually fell asleep at 6 in time for Jaden to make his lovely pre-dawn 'Maaaaaaaawwwwwwwwmeeeeeeeeeeee' bossy demands.

We bought a cute new big girl bed sheet and comforter set which will go on tomorrow. I whipped up a soft and WARM minky sheet that i honestly would love to steal and put on our bed if it fit!

Christmas Program 2012

Mackenna's and Jaden's Christmas Program  Two Videos!

Mackenna is in the front row with the stellar red boots! Thanks, Ann and Rick!  We think her interest in the mic stand clearly sets her on her path to becoming the next sound tech for an award winning movie!
Unfortunately our video camera was not working well so my friend was nice and gave me the video she shot on her phone of the 2 and 3yr olds.  (Her daughter is the one in the middle top row stealing the show with her magnificent set of lungs:)  We don't have video from Jaden's.  Boo.  He did excellent, though!  He knew EVERY word and did a great job!

And in the second video...Mackenna shows her lack of zeal/physical endurance that a 5 minute performance requires.  She is sitting down on the job the majority of the time but what the video does not capture is the fact that she IS indeed singing.  She can sing all three songs at record decibel level and enunciation at home.

Career update

Just moments ago Jaden updated us on his career path.

'When i grow up i am going to be a dad and when the teacher asks the kids where is your dad they will saw in Mexico in an office building."

Me- 'what are you going to do in an office building in Mexico?'

'I am going to be a teacher'.

Ok. So I guess we need to work on our Spanish!
