Zeke is Reading!

This is a video of the first ever STORY TIME with ZEKE! Or, at least a small clip of it. The way we're having to upload videos right now only lets you do 90 seconds. If you didn't see it, don't miss the Sierra Sweetness in the post below.


So, this is supposed to be a really cute video of Sierra waving bye-bye and giving a high five, but alas, blogger has been blocked in our country and thus I can't get the video to load.

Note: Oh good, mom says it's working for you guys even though we can't see it here. Enjoy!

Sunday Morning Conversation...

Zeke has been sick the last few days with fever, but it's been over 24 hours since the fever left. Sierra, however, started running fever yesterday and continues today, so this morning, Dan was planning on taking Zeke and Kaiyah to church. Sierra was going to stay home with Tami. We explained this to the kids, and this is the conversation that followed:

Zeke: "I don't think I should go to church either, since I still have a snotty nose."
Tami: "The fever is the bigger deal, and you haven't had fever for 24 hours, so it's probably okay for you to go, but if you feel like you should stay here, that's okay, too.
Zeke: "I think I better stay here."
Tami: "Okay."
Dan: "So, just me and Kaiyah will go then."
Kaiyah: (high fives Dan)

Five minutes later...

Zeke, to Dan in the kitchen: "Actually, Daddy, I think I should go with you."
Dan: "That'll be good. Why did you decide that?"
Zeke: "Well, I thought Mommy was going to play here, but she said she's just going to listen to church and study."

Fun stuff.

Be sure not to miss Kaiyah's story below...

Kaiyah cuteness

The last few days Kaiyah has been wrapping her arms around me and saying, "You're my hero." This morning she got stuck behind a chair and I got her out. She came over, gave me a hug and said, "You're my hero, mommy, you're my hero. [Sierra crying in the backgroud]. And you're Sierra's hero too!" Too cute, but do you think she watches too much Higglytown Heroes?

Salad Party!!!

Yay, a salad party! Wait, what?

That's right. We got invited to a salad party at Zeke's school today. Not knowing what to expect, we showed up at the school and were led to Zeke's classrooms, where we saw a rather large group of adults seated in kids' chairs along the wall. We joined them and watched as the students were marched in wearing their special chef outfits.

The students gathered around a table filled with all sorts of salad items, some of which included peas, carrots, potatoes, and corn. They played some music and told the kids to make a salad until the music stopped. Some kids were piling their plates high with salad. One kid was crying. Zeke was slowing making himself a very very small salad.

Once the music stopped, the kids stopped making salad, and the kids were led one by one to their parents to give them a taste of their salad. Zeke, when he saw the first kids giving it to their parents, he started to sneak more food onto his plate, I guess knowing that he didn't have to eat it.

After most of the kids went, we got our bite of salad, exclaimed how good it was, and put a little paper metal around his neck. Then all the students were marched out, we were thanked for joining, and that was it. It took about half an hour, but it was fun, and definitely educational. (-:

New Years Party

Our New Year's Eve celebration in this house was nothing to blog about. However, Z had a costume party at school for the occasion! When they told us the children should dress up we asked, "Like spiderman?" knowing we had a spiderman costume at home. But, spiderman was unacceptable apparently. Luckily, Maw Maw and Paw Paw's Christmas present to Z came to the rescue and he went as a fireman!
