Landon's been all about the "I'm a little teapot" song. His Australian teacher at school taught the class and Landon loves it.

Here's a cute video of him...

Kenzy has really been talking it up lately. Here is a cute video of her "talking."

Fun with the home studio...

Posted by Tim 13 November 2009 1 comments

Before leaving America we bought a home studio. It has a backdrop holder, light boxes and a remote transmitter. Here are some pics from our first time using it.

This picture shows the boys' personalities so well! Landon is our calm boy and Josiah is a rascal. He looks like he is scheming right now... rubbing his hands together like Mr. Skinner in the Simpsons "Exxxxcelllent!"

I just love this expression. I don't know why it's so funny to me but I just crack up everytime I look at it.

I told Landon to do a funny face and this is what he came up with.

For anyone who watches the great show, "Community" it reminds me of Senior Chang calling himself the Spanish genius "El Tigre Chino"

Landon's knowledge will bite your face off! Ya bit!

Landon is soooo good with Kenzy and she loves him so much.

Cute kiddos!

We recently had a plague of flies. I'm pretty sure that they were the descendants of the the plague of flies in Exodus.

"There came great swarms of flies into the house of Pharaoh and into his servants' houses. Throughout all the land of Egypt the land was ruined by the swarms of flies."

I bought some fly paper when I saw 15 swarming around my daughter's face when she was trying to enjoy a bottle. The final fly death toll was nearly 175!

Here are a few pics of the flies:

Check out these curls. Too cute!

The hair is geting longer!

Landon was sick the other night and he was throwing up in the sink. Afterwards he laid down and fell asleep underneath it.

On halloween Landon went to school as spiderman.

Josiah wanted to dress up too.

Landon also has these batman pajamas that have a cape. Josiah is very jealous of them so we gave him a cape... a dish towel hooked on his back with clothespins.

Yvonne made this awesome birthday cake for Josiah. I'll upload a video of us singing soon. It is so great. She put a firework candle in the center of the volcano and when we lit it up it was way cool!

Josiah's shirt says, "Warning: I am three"

One of his presents was this ball with a spinning motor in it. I think it's usually a fun toy for pets but Josiah is pretty wild so it works well for him. ;)

Plastic snake = rockin' present

The grandparents chipped in for this "Sand and Sea" table. It has a sandbox on one side and a fun water channel on the other. Ther ei s apecial doohickey that makes the water move around and push boats. There is also a cool water tower.

But as always... nothing beats a box to play with. Look for the feet.

New Tattoo Idea

Posted by Tim 28 October 2009 0 comments

Here is the new tattoo idea. I'd like something in between these two. I want to see that there are stone pieces and the grout lines of the top one but perhaps a little more of the shape of the bottom one. The idea is a mosaic of the tree of life.

Happy Belated Birthday Landon!

Posted by Tim 19 October 2009 2 comments

Sorry it's so late, but here are pics of Landon's birthday (September 8). He is 5 now and very proud of that fact. We had a small party at home, and we took cupcakes to Landon's school. They sang to him in English and Arabic, and he got to pass out the cupcakes to all his classmates. I think he felt pretty special. Isn't he a cutie!? Thanks Grandma and Grandpa and Nana and Papa for the fun gifts!

Here's a video of Landon at school when they sang him Happy Birthday in English and then in Arabic.

Here ya go mom... now get off my back!

love those eyes!

Kenzy has always made this cackling noise when she is happy. It's kind of a laugh or... or something.

I don't know what precipitated this dancing session but these children are wild.
