better watch out!!!

Ethan is taking taekwondo and he loves it! These pictures are from his board breaking class. I never thought he would be able to break boards, but he can! He was the smallest kid to come to the class and he loved being with the bigger boys. He got lots of personal attention from Mr. Duke. He was the first to break the boards and we all loved to watch him. Here are a few more pics of that. It is really hard to get good pictures photgraphing through glass.... At the end he got to keep the boards he broke.

the party

Megan had her 7th birthday party and it was a spa night! We had a total of 4 girls over with their moms. We had such a blast pampering the girls and they loved every moment of it. We started with a "spa like" dinner of croissant sandwiches, chocolate covered strawberries, and heart shaped cheeses. YUM! Then we had the girls lay down and we put on an avacado-oatmeal mask. They thought that was pretty weird feeling. And what spa facial would be complete without the cucumber slices on your eyes. While the girls laid there with the mask on we rubbed their feet with smelly lotions. Then they went to wash off the mask with the cutest washcloth mittens me and my friend Karalee made. Next we got to paint their toes. So dang cute! We played a right-left game to decide what polish the girls got to keep. I made up a funny story about Megan painting her nails. The girls had a little bit of a hard time knowing which way was right or left LOL! Then we painted their toes and I bought the funnest stickers with bling on them to put on when the polish dried. It was really cool! Megan opened her presents and loved everything she got. Then we had cupcakes. I think I always do cupcakes for parties, they are so easy and cute. The girls finished the night by playing wii. It is so fun!

My daughter got a Webkinz for her birthday and last night I helped her get it all set up. I cannot believe how dang cute it is! Everytime we made the little kitten walk around, get on a chair, jump on the trampoline, eat some food, or go to sleep on the cute bed we bought, she and I could be heard from the other side of the house saying, "AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!" It is seriously the cutest thing ever and now I want one. The husband of the friend who gave us the Webkinz has his own and decked out the room you get with it. I thought that was so funny and now I am going to be hooked, too! I can't wait to go pick one out...... LOL!

Something else to try...

Ok, I guess it is time to get into this blogging stuff since I keep getting links to my friends' blogs. I have no idea if this will work so this blog is just practice.
