Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.

Its more fun to talk to someone who doesn't use long difficult words, but rather short easy words like "what about lunch?"
So I have noticed that the random video I posted yesterday (December) doesn't really play like it should. It doesn't play the music and I don't think it even shows all the pictures, but I just wanted to see if blogger was actually working. I have tried to post the video of Isaac riding his bike for quite a while, so I just needed something basic to try first.
It is fun to watch my family change. It is weird that I no longer have any babies in the house but two children. We can now go bike riding together as a family, have game night with each of us being on his own team AND I do believe that Zoey will be big enough to snowboard/ski this year. It definitely saves time and money when you can just pile the kids in the car and don't have to fuss with the arrangements of a sitter.

So apparently blogger has the video up again, or so they posted. The video that I want posted still won't go, so I am trying to figure out how to get my videos from the camcorder to the computer in a form that is computer/blogger friendly. But the stuff from my digital camera is loading well again. So the video from last years December will have music and the video of Ike riding learing how to ride bike has no sound.

“If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.”

The kids are on the bed using the color wonder markers and Zoey is telling Isaac not to rip the pages, to try harder or he will have to sit in the naughty chair. They are just going back and forth and it is hilarious to listen to.

Going backwards in time--Halloween has been a pretty big event. Both the kids have been looking forward to it and very excited. Even Zoey kept telling everyone "I am going to be a punkin" We carved pumpkins Tuesday night. Today the kids had parties at daycare and school. We brought snacks to each of their classes. Tonight we went trick or treating around the loop of Kokanee Bend. The kids climbed into the wagon, I would ask if they were ready, the kids would make train noises. Isaac pointed out every house with their light on. I would say your ride stops here. They climb out, Isaac would knock on the door. Zoey would say I want to knock on the door (each taking a turn) and Zoey would usually follow that with Trick or Treat before the door opens. They say thank you and on the way back to the wagon they would say how much fun that was and we would start the process all over again to the next house.
Isaac finally got to have friends over to the house. We had a small gathering. I had planned for them to play some games, but they played with the balloons and then upstairs with the toys. I don't mess with kids that are playing good! (Actually two of them didn't really get along) We opened some gifts, ate some birthday cake and played some more. All worked out.

I can't believe the little bugger is 5! I have tried to post a video that I made--so beware. It is long and my choice of music is STILL limited. Actually the second song (that repeats a few times) makes me cry like a baby. Nix the stinkin video. I can't get it to load. I really wanted it up on his birthday, but may be another time. Many thank yous to those who have sent out gifts. Isaac has been very excited and we got to do some gift opening tonight, so thanks again.
Let's not forget to wish Becky a happy happy birthday. She is kind enough to share the day with Ike. I so wish I was there to celebrate with you!

Obviously, these are not my quotes, just passin' em on.
- No one can gain inner peace by pouncing on it.
- There is never enough time to do all the nothing you want.
- I've got dreams hidden in places and extra smiles for when I am blue.
- I think the pillow should be the peace symbol, not the dove. The pillow has more feathers than the dove and it doesn't have a beak to peck you with. (Jack Handey)

I was just watching Isaac's video. And I am 100% amazed at how fast and how much my kids have grown and changed. We moved here one year ago. I brought with me a three year old and a one year old. We still had our house in Gillette. How does that song go?--Livin' life in fast forward, now going to rewind real slow. or something like that. I don't mean to get so darn sappy, but you don't see them change until you look back. I miss my babies and am excited, and proud of the kids they are turning into.
- Isaac falls asleep every day in the truck after Chris picks him up from school. However, when asked about it he promptly says "No, I didn't"
- We were eating supper the other night and I can't remember exactly what we were talking about but Isaac says to Chris "You can do that when you are old?"
- Isaac is already singing songs about the universe and the Milky Way, that he learned in school.

Zoey and Isaac had a day of imagination on Monday. Isaac did a lot of surf boarding while Zoey was snowboarding. She was wearing the fireman's outfit that day saying" I'm wearing a costume."
Poor Zoey lost in the mess. She has to be exactly like Isaac and I haven't gotten to the point where I just automatically do everything in 2s yet. When I did Ik's pictures, I did hers also, but I made her wait on the slippers and plant. Oh--she does not like to be left out!
I have recently taken many pictures of the kids, so they will be soon to come. I usually don't have a problem taking pictures of Ike so I didn't take very many. Zoey on the other hand is a stinker so I took about 50! I used Dixie's technique to just keep pushing the button and eventually you will get something good. And I bet out of the 50 I got about 4 good ones!
