Is it Spring Yet? NO!

Oh my goodness, will Spring ever get here!?   So tired of snow and cold... 

So far we have been healthy with the exception of my first head cold of the year. 

The kids brought home EXCELLANT report cards from school.  Kali had all A's and one B.  Kaci had her first semester of Straight A's!  And Kole, what can we say, he will be following along with his sisters with his excellant grades once he goes to letter grades.    He is one smart cookie.  Very bright and talking about wanting to be an Architect.  How so totally cool is that!

Had to get the kids new shoes today.   Kole's feet have grown to a size 3.  Good to see he is healthy and growing.  The girls just had to stop in to Ulta  for a makeup fix.  They love looking at cosmetics and nail polish.  Kali painted her nails to be a French manicure.  She has also been practicing her Spanish with us at home.  Not that we know much Spanish.   

Kaci loves video taping herself and then playing it back, but not for us! LOL  She says it is embarrassing.  They are like instructional for applying makeup or doing hair. lol

I did see a robin about a week ago and one again today...  I hear that means that Spring is 6 weeks away!  Oh I hope it is sooner...  Or at least a good thaw where the weather can break out of the 30's and below...

We recognized two birthdays this month, My Mom and our wonderful Vivian Kuo..

Happy New Year! 2011 is here!

It is hard to believe that a year is gone already.  It just seems that the older I get the faster the years go by.   I think we have had a good 2010 with many ups and downs...  The kids have really grown not only in stature but emotionally and mentally.

It is so hard to believe that Kali's first year of high school is half over.  Three more years of school and she will be graduating!   Kaci has one more year in the intermediate school then she moves to the Junior high!
Kole has another year in the elementary school, then he will move to another school too!

My hopes and wishes for this new year is to make the best of it and fully enjoy life and our kids!  We are in the planning stages of a family vacation this year.  We are looking at several different places for this family vacation.

Kali celebrated with her girlfriends at a sleep over, Kaci and Kole stayed here with Boyd and I.  It was nice to just sit back and relax.    

Now a new year begins....
