Birthday Shirt

Li made Sheldon a 4th birthday T-shirt this year so Sheldon can wear to his class on his birthday. I think Li feels the need to make something special for Sheldon since she's not putting much effort into his 4th birthday celebration. Li did get around to order a $19 dollar Safeway cake for his birthday! We're all looking forward to the sugar flavored cake. Happy 4th Birthday Mr. Sheldon!

Sheldon picked out the rose Gap shirt. It takes a manly man to wear rose.

The iron-on letters are from Jo-Ann. It looks pretty professional!

Aloha from Kauai

Aloha from Kauai! Sheldon and his folks spent a week in Kauai while we stayed at Grandma's house. As usual for me and Bronte, we had a nice R&R from Sheldon. Instead of hiring a professional photographer, they humans decided to save some money by taking "portraits" themselves. This usually means that Li is taking all the pictures and doesn't end up being in many of them since we all know that Cecil's slightly below average when it comes to camera skills.

This is from the Canon point and shoot camera on a random beach.

Mr. Tri-pod took this shot. He's pretty good!

Li took this one. She must have told a good joke to get 2 genuine smiles.

Cecil is thinking how his back is hurting.

Reminds me of the Morton salt commercial.

Oh Deer!

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.

Not So Free Bike

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.
