Joshua the Dinosaur

Today in the midst of spotlight student and Hailey's b-day, Josh had a Kindergarten Parade. It was really cute to see all the kids in so many different costumes and decor. The teachers even dressed up as well. I was able to walk with him, and here is a sneak peek at what the hoop-la was all about...
Here he is first in line with his teacher Ms. Gamiao...
Here he is with his best buddy Tristen..and as always, he is smiling!!

My little Pumpkin..

So my little pumpkin turned 9 today! I can't believe she will only have one more year in the single digit category! The time has seriously passed too quickly with her, and I can barely remember when she was 6 years old and looking at me so it's "Mom, are you sure? Mom, that doesn't seem right..Mom, you don't know what you're talking about!"
All in all she has been a HUGE helper around the house, and BIG sister to her brother and younger sisters, and a GREAT friend to her classmates.
She had a get together with just a couple of friends as they carved their own pumpkins, and decorated cupcakes. They seemed to really enjoy themselves, and here is their final products....
Hailey we LOVE you and are soo proud of you and all your accomplishments!! We hope you had a great and memorable birthday!

Bragging Rights...

OK so I have to first start out by saying I have been doing some major renovating in the house. AKA disaster area!!! I have been re-arranging because I am just not satisfied with how the house looks right now..I don't know if it is some "inner turmoil" or what..but my house is turned upside down, and the ONE thing I need I cannot find to make my project complete.
But with all of this going on, my #1 SON decides to make Mommy and Daddy's week by being Spotlight Student! I am soo excited because he gets to do "special" activities throughout the week in his class, and on Thursday, he gets to eat lunch up on stage with Mommy and/or Daddy plus gets to choose his favorite cheer to say in front of the rest of the kindergartners. (The idea is to be in front of the spotlight.)
Anyway, this week was crazy to begin with, AND it is Hailey's birthday on Thursday, so we are fortunate enough to celebrate two special occasions with two very special pumpkins=-)

Costume Party..

Hailey thought it would be fun to re-iterate once again what the kids were going to be for Halloween. (she constantly wants to "talk" about this) So, she decided to take it upon herself to dress everyone up in their costumes and surprise me in the shower! Needless to say, they looked too cute, so I grabbed the camera, and this is what I captured....

This is what Hailey was last year..she keeps "debating" about this costume or her "race car" one...I guess we will see on Halloween!

Here is Joshy, always full of smiles..he is a dinosaur/lizard/amphibian of some sort?!?!?!(The costume was not specific when purchased!)

The girls are "Dumbo's"..if the costumes look familiar it is because Hailey and Josh were these little guys when they were one..the girls are two and the costumes still fit!!!

I will get better pictures on Halloween, but in case you wanted a sneak peek what will be happening over here on the big blue Island of you know!~happy halloween everyone!

My Hailey Bug..

So up above is a picture of my little Hailey when she was in Kindergarten. Even back then she wanted to be "boy" characters for halloween not anything too girlie. Now here is a picture of her from school just this year, I got these back this week. Since I see her day to day, I never notice the changes that occur, until I compare pictures...
I love how she still has the same smile, (minus the baby teeth) and how she wants to grow her hair out (finally!!) but she won't let me curl it or make it look feminine in ANY way. I can't believe she is going to be nine next week. I will, of course, have another post soon, and Josh doesn't get his pictures for two more weeks so I will post then as well. Miss everyone a lot especially during this time of year, so keep us on speed dial, and have a happy and safe Halloween!

My Little Man

So David and Josh went to go get their haircuts this morning, and I realized this is the FIRST haircut my little guy has gotten before!! Before you say 'WHAT?" I have always cut his hair with a "flow bee" that we bought a few years ago, but this was the first time a "professional" has done will have to tell me what you think!
Ohh, and to get him to let me take his before and after picture, he was singing this new song he learned in goes something like this (hand gestures and all)-
It is about washing your hands..
"Tops ans bottoms, Tops and bottoms
In between, In between..
make hands clean, make hands clean!"
I love his little face when he sings this!!!

Family Time...

So while we were in Boston, creating new memories..the kids and Grandma made some of their own. Aunt Net and her family came to visit as well, so our house was FULL of excitement! We got to meet little Graham for the first time and that was exciting, the newest little Sobek grandchild. Here are some pictures of some of the fun things they did!

This was when Lynnette and her family went to the zoo..

Here they went to Pearl Harbor...

Here they went on a hike..isn't he cute? Graham really has a funny little personality!
We also had the privilege of Net taking our family pic's. They turned out great! Lynnette is working her magic, so when they are done, another post will soon follow!
