So much news....

Biggest news...Patricia wins Most Outstanding Student again this year for Tae Kwon Do! We are so proud of her! Gino tied with her for Perfect Attendance. (Well, actually the instructor docked Gino for one day because he sat out because he had a hard time breathing. But he was there and made the effort to go even though feeling ill. Patricia shared her perfect attendance trophy with him and added his name to it. What a wonderful child!)

Patricia also won Best Sparring (fighting) of the year!

What a great Christmas Demo! Photos to come soon!

Lots of spiders in our new home. We thought this one only had 6 legs but not up close. Neat folk but we've asked them to leave.

Mama and Jessi

Bummer about the red tint. I had my hand over the flash. Still cute though!


Trisha's mandarin trees produced- quite tasty!

Our new home has a spa tub

Amazing how many bubbles can be made with Trader Joe's hand soap!!

Patricia earns her black stripe!

Before testing- no nervousness here!
The starting position for her black stripe pattern...

Wonderful job testing- 6.5 across the board! She made us all so proud. Next testing will be for black belt. Master Bosse only test for black belt once a year. She will surely be ready when the time comes. Master Bosse wants to start a Tae Kwon Do class at Mt. Charleston- that would be great! Otherwise we will be driving in to town to go to the YMCA (closer then our current class) where M. Bosse is still the instructor.

Gabriel's turn- he's 5 Oct. 4th...

Happy Birthday!
Wishing for....? More muscles???

The cake decorator... (she burned her toe with melted chocolate- ouch! That's why her toe is in the sink. It was a horrible burn. After a check at the earth clinic on line, we found EGG WHITES to be the BEST burn remedy ever. She felt better in no time after soaking for 40 min.)
Gabriel wanted a "ghost" cake (feeling halloweeny) and Trish did a great job!
Keeper of the Arms.... Our Gabriel- 5 years old! He is such a gentle, "tough" guy. So kind and loving. Just a wonderful child!
