Justin Bieber Ahhhahahhahahhhhahahhahah!!ahhahah

Penelepe fell asleep on the couch tonight while watching American Idol. Then Justin Bieber started singing. All of a sudden she sat up straight and said, "That sounds like Justin Bieber! That looks like Justin Bieber. That's him!"
Seriously what?
I couldn't believe it! My little four year old. I asked her how she knew who he was and she said she watched him at a friends house. Just in case you may be like me and not really know who he is here's a quick clip of him on Jimmy Kimmel . I love the 11 year old interviewing him.

Where do you work?

Oliver only asked me the last two questions. He already KNEW the answers to the first questions.

New Blades

Thanks Grandma DeEtte! He loves them!

Water Girl/Trainer

It was a perfect SUNNY Day!

Can I get a woot woot!

Ryan graduated from Buffalo State College last week!!! He didn't walk or anything like that so - sorry no pictures, but this is definitely blog worthy! He really enjoyed it (as much as you can enjoy college) and for the most part really appreciated all of his instructors. He did amazing in all of his classes, and we HAVE to THANK Rachel from our ward. She helped him with so many papers!!! THANK YOU!!!
He now is attending UB (still here in Buffalo) and is in the accelerated program for a Masters of Social Work. The program is 12 months! How wonderful is that?! There is light at the end of the tunnel!

Two Wheeler

Over Mother's Day weekend I went to Toronto with several girlfriends for the weekend. It was the first time that I have left the kids, other than when I was at the hospital giving birth to one of their siblings, and I was nervous and anxious about leaving them. Why? Who knows. Ryan was home with them, I guess I was afraid I might miss some big event. Well I did.

Whoa - whoa

Penelepe's cousin Lorenzo, who isn't even 3 yet, knows how to ride a "two wheeler". We thought for sure this would be a major motivator for Penelepe to learn..... if her little cousin can do it...... Ryan and I tried teaching her, and honestly I gave up and thought maybe next year we'll try again. Well, while I was gone, Uncle Chris, a.k.a. The Bike Whisperer, taught her! Yay! No more training wheels - they were so loud! Thanks Uncle Chris!!!!

She has had one little fall since learning - but that won't keep her down. She has been doing an impressive platypus impression the past couple days.


The other day I was in the grocery store and all of a sudden she said "More" and signed it at the same time. It was so out of the blue, and the first time she has ever signed anything, it made me laugh. We were of course in the cereal isle and she kept pointing and saying/signing "more", "more", "more". For the rest of the shopping trip anything she saw that she wanted, she would let me know by saying/signing more. Now every time we go grocery shopping she says/signs more at least a dozen times. I love it!

We Love These Kids

I love that I am the Mom of these three crazy kids!

Penelepe loves her Mom so much she wore hearts in her hair today just for her! Isn't it cute Rebekah? It would be adorable in Piper's hair too.

Pumpkin Face

Kids at this age look so silly. Oliver had his tooth magically hanging on the entire day today, even though you could see the top of his gums. He could twist it and make it go any direction - he was trying to see if he could make his Mom puke on Mother's Day.

Happy Birthday Oliver

Just in case you may not know, Oliver Loves LEGOS. If he isn't outside riding his bike or playing he usually is inside building something.

The boys built a Lego bridge to see whose could hold the most weight and we had a contest to see who could create something awesome while they were blindfolded.

On his actual birthday we had the neighborhood kids over to do a pinata. I have attempted to make a pinata for the past two years, but just ended up with paper bags. This year I actually made one. I was really worried the kids would break it after the first hit, but they didn't.

We have no trees in our little side yard, which created a minor problem with our pinata. Luckily Oliver has a super strong Dad who held it out the window.

The pinata was so well built that no one could break it. (Don't worry we have fired the pinata maker).

The forecast did say it was cloudy with a chance of candy.

Violette enjoyed all of the festivities in Rozannah's bike trailer. She is such a cheese ball!
