Robert is 33 (3+3)= 6 and that is how old Karalee is!! Cool huh!
Now since Robert and Karalee do share the same birthday and Robert is not to fond of celebrating his it has ususally become the day that we celebrate Karalee's Birthday. We all love Robert and he actually wished for a chocolate cake, I told him that the Barbie's head has chocolate frosting so he could eat that. Hey, at least he got to pick the flavor of the ice cream- chocolate.
It was a fun day. Karalee got to invite 2 friends over to play all day and have a tea party for lunch. I was ready for a more relaxed birthday then she has had in the past.

My kids had a ton of fun coloring Easter eggs and they really got into the spirit.
The last picture is of our very cool spider web Easter egg after we took the shell off. Leon thought this was so cool since he is really into Spiderman.

I took Kanon to his doctors appointment and he weighs 21.2 lbs and is 28 1/4 inches long. He was doing really well until Dr. Shamo came in and he started to get really upset. He started grabbing and clinging onto me. Dr. Shamo said that is what he likes to see at this age and it's called stranger anxiety. It occurs mostly when they see another male because the only other males they are used to are their fathers and grandpa's. Dr. Shamo said he was the picture of perfect health and that he looks like he is doing well.
He is so cute and his personality is expanding, we all really enjoy him and his happiness.
This picture is what Karalee calls his Chinese Hat (they are just small cones you use in soccer).

If most of you didn't know I am the Activity Day Leader for the 8-9 year olds in our ward. I have truly loved this calling and all the girls have such sweet spirits.
On this particular Activity Day we had a lesson on "Our Bodies are Temples". I really wanted to get their attention and this is how I did it.
First, I had baked this cake and decorated it pretty. Then I asked the girls if they would like a piece and they said yes. So I took my hand and dug out a piece of this cake and slopped it down on a plate. The girls faces were priceless and then they decided they didn't want it. This was to show that the gospel is more attractive depending on how it is served. Then I sliced a nice piece of cake to show the contrast and let the girls have a piece of cake asking how they would like it served. I told them that it matters how we dress, what we do, what we say, and how honest we are because we are serving up the church at all times, even when we don't think we are. I believe this was very affective and they seemed to enjoy it.
I had a couple of moms come and help with that day. The girls had foot baths, facials, mani's and pedi's. I then gave them Beauty Bags with some fun stuff for them to take home and use.
I had a ton of fun planning it and it turned out to be a great Activity Day that I believe the girls will remember.

I was so proud of Karalee at Parent Teacher Conference. She got all Honors and seems to be really loved by her teacher, Mrs. Schena. Her teacher told me that she is one of the most well behaved kids in the class. Apparently she likes to remind her teacher of everything; for example if it was someone's birthday and the parent brought a treat for the class and there was a kid not there to eat their treat they would save it for them and then the next day Karalee would ask if Mrs. Schena gave so and so their treat. She also likes to help the teacher get her supplies out for the lesson or activity that they will be doing. I am so glad to hear that she is so thoughtful of others and that she is doing so great.
