videoRobs class at the festival



Robbie was up next and I dont know what I was thinking, but I didnt realize I could video tape the dance as well. So the next one is a clip of Rob's dance. He was awesome, he really was working the dance...






















Dance Festival

Every year in May the Elementary School here in Tooele does a dance festival and each grade learns a new dance and puts on a performance for all of the parents, grandparents, etc. to watch. This was Ryan's first year and he did the Chicken Dance. He was soooo cute.

My cousin Amy sent this to me and uhhh who doesn't want chocolate cake in 5 minutes, seriously...



THE 5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE CAKE FOR ONE PERSON (or two)....... 5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE4 tablespoons flour 4 tablespoons sugar 2 tablespoons cocoa 1 egg 3 tablespoons milk 3 tablespoons oil 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) A small splash of vanilla extract 1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. EAT ! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous). And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

Flat Robbie

Robbie came home from school awhile back and said he needed a family member or friends address to take to school. He said they would be writing a "friendly letter" and mailing it to this person. We talked about all of the awesome friends and family that we have and Rob finally decided on Aunt Carol. (Dan's sister) I wondered what he wrote to her, but life is going on and I forgot to ask him. The other day, Aunt Carol posted these awesome pictures on Facebook. When Robbie sent the letter he included a Flat Robbie, which Aunt Carol has taken with her to school and on the ferry. Completely Awesome. Check out the scarey ferry guy with Flat Robbie. Thanks Aunt Carol for posting these great pics.

Dale the Fish is Dead

Oh my the time has finally come and little Dale was not floating but hanging out between two rocks at the bottom of the bowl. Dan said I think the fish is dead and I said no way. So, I bumped the bowl and sure enough up he came floating to the top. Well, then came the decision making how do we handle this? Dan said I'll throw the whole bowl away and then we will be done with it all. I thought oh no we shouldn't do that because what if we want to get another one. So, my plan was to have Dan fish out the fish and Dan would not fish out the fish and I certainly would not do that. YUCK!! So the bowl sat for 2 days while we decided what to do him. The final decision came right before I had some friends over on Saturday. Dan wasn't home and I had not changed my mind about fishing so out went the entire bowl into the trash can. No long service for him, I thought briefly as I dropped him into the can "Sorry Dale." We have had the no more hamster experience and now no more fish!!!

37?? Can it be true??

Well, it's today. Today is the day that I turned 37. It's hard to imagine, at least for me. I don't think I should be 37 that seems far too close to 40 for my liking. Anyway, it has been a great day. Dan woke up long before me and he and the kids cleaned the family room and decorated for me. They made a great birthday poster and hung streamers. I had the best birthday breakfast omelet ever. It was a fabulous tomato, avocado, & cheese omelet. He made cheesy shredded potatoes and english muffins with that. Delicious!!! We ate and then went to the zoo. It was a great day at the zoo, a little chilly (not bad), very few people and lots of active animals. We are home now and there will be a very yummy dinner coming my way as well - or so I have been told. I'm working on getting the pics on here, but I seem to be having some trouble uploading the pics...
