Super Robert!!!

This actually happened before Christmas, but it was too cute to pass up. While I was washing dishes Robert loaded up with medicine droppers, spoons, forks, etc. We added a dishcloth cape and he was "SUUUPER ROBERT" ready to fight the evils of the universe!

Three in a Bed

The girls invited Robert to a "sleepover" last night. I didn't think he would actually go to sleep, let alone stay there all night, but he did! It's moments like this when I realize how much they really love each other.

Christmas Fun

Christmas 2008

We were so lucky to have David's parents here for Christmas this year. This is the first time we have had family here and it was such a treat! They came Monday afternoon and left this morning. We were sad to see them go. On Tuesday we went to the La Brea Tarpits and the LA temple.

Let it Snow!

Here are a few pics of the snow that were taken earlier in the day. We checked about an hour ago and almost had 12" and it is still falling!

some news

A few things to tell ya!

Robert has been wheezing and coughing again. Last time this happened it got to the point that we had to call 911 and Robert had his first (and hopefully last) ride in an ambulance. They are finally treating him for asthma and hopefully we will be sleeping a little better in the very near future.

Alahna had an awards assembly yesterday where she received an award for "excellence in math" Good job LouLou!

The girls stayed home today due to SNOW!!! Yes, that's right it is currently snowing here in the desert! We probably have about 4 in" so far and it's still coming! It is beautiful! I will post some pics as soon as my battery is charged on my camera.

Santa Disapointment

So last night was our ward Christmas party and as tradition goes the man in red paid a visit. Without me knowing, Robert pushed his way to the front of the line and jumped up on Santa's lap. By the time I realized that he was already with the Jolly Old Elf, Robert was starting to get a little frustrated. I listened as he told Santa that he wants "ots a fins". Poor Santa was trying to understand, but Robert wasn't leaving until he was SURE that Santa heard him correctly. I came just in time to interpret. (In case you can't read Robertese, the interpretation is "lot's of things".) So he leaves Santa's lap . . . and gets back in line. When I tell him that he already had a turn he became upset saying he "didn't tell him". So we patiently waited in line. When it's our turn Robert marches boldly to him, stands right in front of him, and motions with his finger for Santa to lean down. Then he whispers that he would like a train and a toothbrush (yes, he really does want a new toothbrush). Again he wouldn't leave until I translated and Santa repeated it back. After some resistance, I pull Robert away trying to figure out what the problem is; when he looks up at me and with a trembling lip says, "it didn't work."
"What didn't work?" I asked
"He didn't give me any presents"
Oh dear, it all became clear! What a disapointment! Luckily, He seems to be okay with Santa delivering them to our house Christmas Eve.

I hope I never forget those little trembling lips.
By the way, pics will come later.

Beauty Shop

Anna brought home a manicure set that she had won at school and was so excited to set up a "Beauty Shop". Her and Lahna made a sign, put books in the "lobby" for costumers to read and then went searching for potential clients. I think Robert was there best costumer, but even William participated a little. Oh, the joys of being a little brother. I can't help but remember Corey in a dress and make-up with cleavage and all. If only I had a picture of that!!!

Sleepy Head

Robert carried this book around all day and then fell asleep with it.


William found himself in this little predicament yesterday. And yes, I know, I am mean for taking a picture before rescuing him. The funny part is not 3 seconds after being rescued he did it again. Silly William!

I am so utterly annoyed right now. The neurosurgeon's office called to schedule Robert's appt and apparently they didn't get authorization because they had our insurance listed wrong. Now we have to wait another week or two before we can even get an appt. I HATE dealing with HMO's. I cannot even count how many times we have been through this. ARGHHHHHHH!!!!!!

silly boy

Here is a conversation I had with Robert last night a little after midnight when he crawled into our bed.

Is it morning yet?







Sorry Robert I have no idea what your trying to say.

He thinks for a second, shrugs his shoulders and says "that's okay, me either."

I love that little boy.
