The "CAT" of Monte Christo

If you have ever seen the movie "The Count of Monte Christo" then you will remember the scene when the old man is trying to teach him speed and he is trying to put his hand through water without getting wet.  Well, I decided the other day that this movie is the cat version of that scene.  (Even though the cat is pretty slow... he got pretty wet)

Heart Bums

Ella was soooo excited that her and Elena both had tights with hearts on the bums, that we had to take a picture!!

Going GREEN!

There is a lot of talk about "Going Green" these days, but when I say going green, I am much more literal.  My blog is actually turning GREEN!!  Anyone who knows me well, knows that I like the color green.  (just ask my husband)  I like it, I love it, what can I say!!  Now you all might think that it is a little early to be going green for St. Patrick's Day, but it's not.  Those of you who get harrassed by their husbands as much as I do about liking things green... St Patrick's Day is the one holiday out of the year, when our family and friends can't give us a hard time for having lots of things that are green!!
So everyone show some ST PATRICK'S DAY spirit and GO GREEN!!!

Valentine's Day 2009

Valentine's Day was a lot of fun this year.  We woke up and the girl's found their presents from Mommy and Daddy and from Grandma Tamara.  Later that day a box came from Grandma and Grandpa Cederstrom, so we got to open it and have even more Valentine fun.
That night our babysitter fell through for us to go to dinner, so we decided to take the girl's with us.  It was a lot of fun to have them come, so we decided it would be fun for Dave to take them out for a daddy-daughter lunch/dinner every year.
It was so fun to spend Valentine's together as a family this year, and it reminded me how much I love my husband and girls.

Ella's bad luck

Ella hasn't had a very good few weeks the last few weeks.  She has puked a few times here and there, fevered here and there, this that and the other it seems like.  Generally she hasn't felt good.  Well, today she was finally feeling pretty good and we to Idaho Falls shopping.  She went into PetSmart with Dave to get Bruno's toe nails clipped and while they were there they were looking at the fish.  David told her it was time to go and she turned around without looking where she was going and ran straight into the ladder they use to get the fish out of the tanks.  She said that it didn't hurt, but when they went to check out the lady and the counter made a big fuss and Dave realized that she had a big bump on her head and already had a bruise.
I don't know how well you can see it in this picture, because pictures never show bruises very well.  Needless to say she has a headache again tonight but we are hoping she will feel better soon.

If the broom fits

The other day Ella came wondering into the office with a witch hat on sitting on a broom.  I told Dave that I thought it was really funny that she was pretending she was a witch this time of year, but Dave reminded me that she is 3 and she doesn't get that witches go with Halloween.  Anyway... (that was kind of long to tell a simple story)  
So, here is my little Happy Valentine's Day witch!
