"Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies. I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records, they will indeed be a source of great inspiration to you, each other, your children, your grand-children and others throughout the generations. Remember, the Savior chastised those who failed to record important events." --President Spencer W. Kimball

I got to take my boys to the walking with the dinosaurs that came to town and it was so much fun! I bought the cheapest seats which, of course were in the super duper nose bleeds up all the way against the top wall, but it was so much fun! The dinosaurs looked real, they were HUGE and they sounded so real. It was funny because Makai said "Mom, thanks for getting our seats all the way up here because if we were lower they would eat us" I just laughed and went along with it.

These ones were Makai's favorites:

These ones were Filimone's favorites:

And here is the T-Rex. My boys were scared of him because he was SOOOO loud, but I thought he was pretty cool!!

And of course some pictures of them with their treats, and them being silly during the intermission!!

Makai & Elle

Elle is Makai's kindergarden class friend. He got to come home with is for the weekend to sleep over with Makai and Mone. Here is a scrapbook of the fun-filled weekend we had with Elle.

Fangupo Family Christmas 2009

We always get together on the holidays, and this year we wanted to do something a little different, we focused more on the kids...which was such a good idea! Thanks to Toa and Kiki's wonderful ideas, the kids had a blast, and made tons of good memories. Toa baked some sugar cookies shaped like jingle bells and I mixed several different colors of frosting. While we were preparing the cookies, Kiki and Siosiana split the kids into groups and decorated gingerbread houses. It was so fun to see all the kids being so creative. After the houses were done, they all got a couples cookies and butter knives and decorated their own cookies. I think little Siope was the funniest because he kind of just kept the green frosting to himself and was eating it out of the bowl instead of decorating his cookie...all the kids had so much fun and I got some good pictures of the Fangupo kids!!!
