Dinsneyland #2

We went to California Adventure Park and had a good time there, but it's no Disneyland. We saw the water show and what can I say, but it was amazing. I've never seen anything like it. We spent another day at Disneyland as well and had a great time. Also during this trip David had a Tae Kwon Do tournament. My instructor Master Shin was hosting the tournament and so Yai and the kids got to meet my tkd teacher. David did a great job and we are so proud of him. It was a fun tournament and vacation.

We went to California for David to compete in my Tae Kwon Do Master's tournament and we decided to make a vacation of it and do Disneyland and California Adventure Parks. It was a lot of fun. We went with Yai's sister and her family and his parents flew in from Virginia to be with us. Here are some pictures of our first day at Disneyland. We had a blast!!! There will be more posts on the rest of our California trip soon!

Happy 6th Birthday David!

David turned 6 on July 15th. Since his birthday fell on a Thursday we did a mini celebration that morning before I went to work and had his party on the Saturday. I never thought I would be so emotional when my kids had birthdays, but it turns out I cried on David's birthday because it is hard for me to see my baby boy growing up so fast. We had a lot of fun celebrating his birthday at Jump On It with his Aunts, Uncle, Cousins, Friends, Sisters, and of course Mom and Dad. We love you David and are so glad you are our son!

David's birthday breakfast. Pancake, strudel, and juice. (At his request)

Opening his birthday card from Nanny, and of course when I read it to him I started crying because it was sinking in that my baby boy is not a baby anymore, he's 6 years old and going into first grade.

Opening a birthday present (Mario Galaxy 2 for the Wii) He is addicted to his Wii.

Articles of Faith

Here is video of Avery who just turned 2 on 3/4/10. Be warned, I am average volume, but she is soft, so you will have to turn up the volume.

Avery shocked us by learning the 2nd article just by listening to Jaylin learning it for Primary. So Ashley worked with her since we obviously found out that Avery is capable of memorizing them.

Christmas 2009!!!

We had a lot going on this Christmas Season. Jaylin's pre-school had a couple performances of the Christmas Story. Jaylin was the angel and was so cute. The kids performed for some Seniors and also for their families. They all did a great job. David helped out and was a shepard. We went swimming with some friends at a hotel in Salt Lake that had a water slide. That was pretty eventful. Jaylin thought she could swim without a life jacket and jumped right in when none of us was looking, thank goodness a young life guard was paying attention and jumped in to help her swim to the side. David's kindergarten class had a Christmas program for their families. It was cute, they sang songs and read their "Dear Santa" letters. My side of the family gets together every Christmas Eve and we have a buffet for dinner, read the Christmas story from the Bible, sing Christmas songs, and Santa comes with a present for the young grand kids. Then of course there is Christmas day where we stay home in our new Christmas jammies, play with our new toys, watch movies, and eat all day! Here a pictures of our festivities ;)

Jaylin in her pre-school play for the Seniors. Isn't she such a cute little angel?!

Jaylin meeting her new adoptive grandma and giving her a card she made in pre-school.

David singing songs in his kindergarten Christmas program. This is what his Dear Santa letter said that he read in front of everyone: "Dear Santa, please bring my mom and dad my new baby brother. Love, David." and NO I am not pregnant! He's just going to have to wait a while for that one ;)
