So Broken

So this video is a few weeks old, but it has been my favourite routine on this year’s SYTYCD.  Sonja Tayeh works her magic again!

Tooth #5

After breakfast yesterday, Asher came downstairs showing me he had lost another tooth!  The kid went a whole year between tooth #2, & tooth #3, but apparently now he’s on a roll!  He was very excited about it & started begging me for money right away!  Time for a lesson in gratitude vs. expectations!

Chancery’s 6!

Yesterday was Chancery’s birthday, & she was lucky to get to celebrate with Grandpa & Grandma too!

IMG_3740 Chancery decided she really wanted to make a birthday hat, then she hooked a string to a pipe-cleaner & looped it on her arm to keep the hat on!

IMG_3727 Birthday tradition says that the birthday kids gets to choose the restaurant for dinner!  Chancery chose Pizza Delight, & enjoyed a free birthday pizza!



IMG_3749 Chancery received pink headphones (Which she had already used on the trip to New York, but since they were really a birthday gift, I wrapped them up for her to open)!

IMG_3782 Happy Birthday, Chancery!

During church yesterday, after we had just sung a song, Chancery turned to me & said, “I was singing too!”


Me: “That’s great!”


Chancery: “Yes, and I wasn’t singing ‘Twinkle-Twinkle’ or another song!  I was singing the same song that you were singing!”

IMG_1313 Asher: “I have a new game that Grandma gave me!”


IMG_1314 Chancery: “Can my kitty play it?”


IMG_1315 Chancery: “My kitty loves to play games!”


IMG_1316 Asher: “You have to jump over the pegs, so you only have 1 peg left at the end.  It’s really hard!”


IMG_1317 Chancery: “Well, my kitty is really smart.”


IMG_1318 Asher: “I have tried & tried, but the best I can get is 2 pegs left.”


IMG_1319 Asher: “It’s driving me crazy!”



Chancery: “That sounds like a great game, Asher!”
