Quirky Kids

Our kids have been cracking us up lately:

On Monday evening we went to my mom's to go through their Halloween costumes. Dannon found a batman costume that he liked. At some point in the evening we heard the front door open. We assumed it was Dannon, but after looking outside started to doubt ourselves. So we looked other places for a while because Dannon was missing. Once we returned to the front yard again, we noticed Suki and Natalie Kuresa on the front porch laughing. Apparently Dannon, dressed up as the cutest batman ever, had ran quickly over to the Kuresa's, let himself in, sat down on the floor, and played with their granddaughter. Funny, and scary at the same time. Crazy kid!

Yesterday I told Brody to get in the shower and he replied, "Um, I'm thinking about it." Wow, he's growing up a little too fast.

And last night Marley carried a stool over to the piano, got on the stool, and carefully put some books on top of the piano. We clapped for her because it was just too cute. She got off the stool and bowed. Hahaha, we have no idea where she picked that one up, but she continued to bow the rest of the night (possibly because of the reaction she got from us).

Anyway, just thought I would share.

Marley's 2 Year Pictures

October 19, 2009


I hope you are up for a long posting; a lot has gone on the last few weeks.

So a few weeks ago we had family home evening at the temple. We like to have a picnic dinner behind Mormon Center, talk a little about the temple, and eat. This time it ended up with a dance party on the stage. These pics were taken with Chris' phone. Despite the blurriness, you get the idea.

A couple days after we headed to the pumpkin patch. We went with some friends and had a blast!

The boys both just had birthdays. Brody just turned 6 and Dannon 4. So we rallied all the family together for a combo party at the park.
Chris and Julene
Emily and Libby
Meggie and Gage
Marley and Coen ... they couldn't get enough of each other.

Puzzle Time

Our business trip to Monterey ... so much fun!
Chris had a blast golfing in paradise.

Lovely I know. We went kayaking in the bay. It was a lot of fun, and a the wind made it a nice work out too.
Saturday we decided to go whale watching and had some time to kill before departure. Chris tried to try on some cheesy glasses.

Finally on the boat. It was a blast. We didn't see any whales but we did see some Dallis Dolphins, I think that's what they're called. They look like a mix between a killer whale and a dolphin. It was so exciting to see them. We were at the bough (sp?) of the ship and got a close view of them swimming right underneath us. Anyway sad news that we didn't see whales, but the place is so awesome they gave us a rain check. So next year, we'll test our luck again.

Okay, this is kind-of a black male video, but it's so funny I had to post it. We decided to take a break from the cold and wind. You can't tell from the video when we go up and down because the camera is going up and down too, but it was a very bumpy ride.

The token puker.
Obviously after our trip. She's been putting on her pirate face a lot lately.
I know I'm biased, but isn't she beautiful?!
