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!

Gino turns seven- Oct. 3rd

Morning gifts....
Needed to play right away in the tub with the Lego batman gifts....
Brownie cake for Gino....
He had punch, too. He really wanted punch for his birthday in our new punch bowl! Happy Birthday to dearest Gino- making us laugh since 2001! Heart of gold and full of wit and wisdom and perfect comedic timing= Gino!
Jessica found her fingers. She has been putting 5 fingers in her mouth at one time- 2 from one hand 3 from the other! She sucks herself to sleep.
