We hunted eggs in the park in front of our house also.

This is our favorite annual hunt. We love to have lots of friends in "our yard" (the park) - if you donate 10 eggs then you can find 10 eggs. You can also hunt for an egg with an address on it and go after the hunt is over and get a prize at a neighborhood home. FUN FUN FUN. We invited our Harward friends. It was great - - - We colored eggs with them at their house on Friday night. Jonah loves to get together with these boys.


The kids had fun at all the local egg hunts. The first hunt was at Nolan Park - the local large park. Thousands of kids and thousands of eggs. Wow - Charlise was a little overwhelmed, grabbed 3 eggs and started to cry. I worried about Jonah even being competitive enough to try. He got 7 or 8. We found out after, some of the eggs had cash - some had numbers so you could get a prize (nice prizes) No luck like that for us.

I took my two princesses to the ice show and we had so much fun!! We went with Azu and Jazmin and the rest of Charley's best daycare friends. The girls were in heaven. Of course my Princess Charley dressed up in her Cinderella Dress. All her idea - she was beautiful and Princess Natasha wore a cute little dress and jean jacket from Auntie Jen. My girls bring me such joy!!!!

All Work and No Play????

I have to say that I am so grateful for Vili's hard work - - - I can't believe that we have survived without my teaching career. We have been blessed and Vili loves his job. I love working at our store. - I get to keep baby with me - it's my home away from home.

Currently, Vili is leaving the house by 5:00 am and working until 5:30. Tuesdays and Thursdays he goes straight to school. He has classes from 7:00 to 10:00. When he comes home after that he always tries to do a little something to help out at the house.

For the months of October, November, December and January - he worked away in Wyoming on the windfarm - - such a cool experience but also such long days out in the negative temperatures. He's a wonderful husband and father. THANK YOU FOR WORKING SO HARD - -

Charley at Mimi's

Charlise got to stay at grandma and grandpa's by herself for the first time last night. She was excited all week long - and with good reason -- - - - she got/is spoiled.

Some cute quotes from Charley:

She was crying like crazy on Sunday when Aunty Lisa left after dad's birthday party - - mom promised her that she could just go stay at her house by herself. - She didn't say when though . . . . .

Monday afternoon she called her grandma and in her sweetest voice said,"Mimi, I'm ready. . . ." Grandma had a touch of the flu and cried because she couldn't come get her. She promised her later in the week.

They picked her up last night and immediately went to Walmart to spoil her. Mom let her pick out an outfit (cute pants and a jacket)and called to tell me last night that Charlise informed her "I can't get this outfit, mom told me I could never beg you for anything. . . . . " After she knew it was ok - that grandma wanted to get the outfit . . . then Charlise said "Mimi, I have to get a shirt to go with it . . . what if I get a little hot, I will need to take the jacket off."

Charley is so cute and so fun!!! She is forever our entertainment - - - -

Tasha's Newest trick

Tasha is 8 months old and this is her newest trick. Of course, usually it is much better and of course, usually she is dressed but this is what she would do for me on video

Jonah took his second degree red belt test on Saturday. This is very stressful. This is his demonstration on attack. Yes - it's a girl. He can kick butt on the boys too. What a STUD!!
