I can no longer say that I have never seen deer droppings. A deer dropped its droppings in front of our porch yesterday. Why would a deer even venture to our house? I guess we live closer to nature than we had imagined. Over the last 5 years, we've had a bird's nest (with eggs) on our front porch, several turkeys, deer, raccoons in our backyard. We see many hawks glide around on the backside of our house on a daily basis... which probably means they are eating rats or wild hares. I'll let you know if we see hares in our yard.

Sheldon got a free bike from Santa for Christmas. This free bike ended up costing the family a lot more as Li ended up getting a bike for her birthday, Cecil got a bike for his birthday, the Subaru needed a bike rack to hold both bikes and everyone needed a bike helmet. "Free" ended up costing them hundreds more.
|It took 30 minutes to install the bike rack and bikes. They only biked for 20 minutes.|
|If helmet apparel represents one's desire to get attention, |
then I wonder who is getting more attention? Shark Head or Little Red Riding Hood?
Sheldon has joined the families out there who fill their weekends with lessons and classes. No, it's not piano, soccer, basketball, drawing, dance or a foreign language class. It's Kung-Fu!
|Sheldon earned his white belt today (not pictured). |
To earn the white belt, Li just needed to complete the registration and pay the fees.

Jasmine and Audrey came over for a play date today. Audrey slept the entire stay and missed all the fun while Jasmine and Sheldon built a gingerbread house in February. Better late than never, I guess. While Li was icing the house, she discovered that both kids would sing Mandarin songs for just a tiny bit of icing! Check out the video here.
|Wilton's House Kit. It really wasn't tasty at all.|
|Sheldon and Jasmine didn't pipe the icing but they did add the candy decorations. |
Sadly, they didn't get to eat the house (it was stale) but just ate some candies and icing.

Sheldon and Kai had to drive about 3,000 feet higher than last year to find snow. When at 6,000 feet, and snow was still nowhere in sight, they panicked a little.
|Cheeeeezzeee! They found plenty of snow!|
|Sheldon and Cecil after a run. Look at the gigantic smile on Sheldon's face!|
|Everything that goes down must crawl up. Most of the hard work was to walk back up to the top.|
