Life's A Happy Song

Katherine and Caroline performed in their school's annual talent show a few weeks ago.  They have performed each year since Kindergarten except for the one year when the school didn't have one.  

In the past, they have performed song and dance routines to popular artists such as Katy Perry and One Direction.  This year they sang "Life's A Happy Song" from the Muppets with their four close friends.  The girls and their friends have always choreographed their performances with no help from the parents.   Each year I am amazed by what they come up with. This year was no exception. The song and dance routine was well rehearsed and entertaining.  When I asked the girls who came up with the song and dance moves, Katherine said that Caroline chose the song and most of choreography.  Caroline said that she wanted to select a song that the parents in the audience would know.  While I am proud of their performance and hard work, I am just as pleased that she put so much thought into picking a song that would appeal to both the adults and youth in the audience.  This line from the song says it all "Life's a Happy Song when there's someone by my side to sing along."  Here's to many more years of happy singing!

"Harry" Potter Lim and a quick recap

Haven't had the time to blog as much about the kids as I would like.  Here's a quick recap of what this year has brought:
Katherine got a retainer.

The girls joined the Bulldogs swim team. 

Harrison learned how to take "selfies" at 2 years old.

We celebrated Grandma's birthday with one of my homemade fruit tarts.  

Caroline and Harrison at Lemos farm.  Katherine went to LA with David to watch a UCLA game.  

My little man and I at Great America.  He loves the merry go round.

Don't the glasses look familiar?

Saturday Mornings

Like a typical kid on a Saturday morning, Harrison woke up early similar to his usual weekday routine. Today he woke at 6am. We watched TV (Barney and Thomas),ate breakfast, and played but he was starting to get cranky. I knew he wanted to go out and play. By the time we finally got out of the house and on our way to the park, the poor kid fell asleep. At least Katherine and Caroline are enjoying the park!

The Boy Loves the Camera

Harrison loves the camera. He will smile at the camera and loves to watch videos of his sisters and himself. 

I was taking a photo of Caroline with her hand crocheted lei and flowers after she earned her medals in both her violin and piano.  Harrison was eagerly waiting for me to take his photo too.  What a ham!

Hawaii Spring Break 2014

This April we took the kids to Oahu for the first time with David's parents. We stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village and had a great time swimming in the lagoon, pool and ocean. We searched for the best shaved ice on the island - Wailoa won the vote!  Here are some photos from out trip

We all have to learn sometime.  Even those of us who do it more than we should had to start at the beginning.

I'm talking about eating.  Something we take for granted, yet there is nothing like a 17-month old to teach you how difficult learning to eat can be.

Not that Harrison learning to eat is an unpleasant experience.  Harrison has taken to it willingly, so much so that he often refuses to each anything you offer him unless you set it in front of him and hand him a utensil.

I would mind so much really, if it weren't for the fact that it now take longer for him to eat, and I'm always worried that he's not getting enough to eat.  It makes me wonder how in the world we ever taught twin girls how to eat!

In any case, Harrison is happy during mealtime -- eating like a "big boy" and making a mess as he learns to use fork, spoon, and bowl!  Bon Appetit!
