We have lots of dragonflies outside right now. Not sure why they're all congregating in our backyard, but the girls love chasing them.

Reese channels Mr. Miyagi

The other night we ordered in some Chinese.
Once the girls were finished eating, they opened up their fortune cookies.
Reese handed me her slip of paper and asked what it said. Of course, I told her that it said something along the lines of, "little girls should always listen to their Mom and Dad .. clean up their messes .. sleep in late .." blahblahblah.

She wasn't buying it.

I gave it back to her .. "Fine .. YOU read it."
She looked at it for a second and then started to "read"..

"It says .... If you're a bear .... be a bear!"

I read the actual fortune after she said that ..

"Depart not from the path which fate has you assigned."

Nailed it.
Nice of her to dumb it down for us common folk though.

Apparently we have much to learn from our little sensei.

Birthday Party Video

FINALLY got finished with putting these clips together. It's not the best quality (it looks ridiculously choppy on my computer .. hoping it's this horrid laptop and that it's not a huge problem for others.) ..
and it has a lot of little issues that drive me insane to look at .. buuut ...
it's the best I can do right now.

Working on an old spare laptop right now since my Mac died on me. Not much power on here .. and no great editing software either. I had one heck of a time just throwing together a few clips.
Once I'm back to a computer that will cooperate more, I'll be re-editing and finishing it up.

In the meantime ...
(If it seems choppy, you can try it on YouTube's site .. )

Kaelin has some mad skillz on the dance floor.

Pray for us ... one day she'll be 13.

Reesey at the Waterfall.

We added a new pet to the fold ..

... for two days. I'm not a big fan of capturing creatures .. however, when we came across this little guy it seemed like perfect revenge for two flies that had gotten into the house and were slowly driving me crazy.
We made him a little home and watched with glee as he gobbled those pesky flies up.
Once he was fattened up (and we no longer heard any buzzing noises around the house), we released him in the backyard.

pics and movies soon ..

4th birthday party was a blast! I'm trying to get stuff on the blog .. but progress is being hampered by the fact that I'm working on a spare computer right now. My laptop died .. iPhoto has inexplicably disappeared from this spare .. and I can't find iMovie on here either.
Sooooo .. trying to figure out a way to make it all happen ..
Hopefully tomorrow I'll come up with a solution (because the videos of our little "Rock Stars" dancing are hysterical)!

My babies are 4.
