8 kids + 10 cans of shaving cream =


We've been lucky enough to have Brandi's kids over at our house a lot lately and so I've been trying to think of fun ways to entertain all these kids. My mind flashed back to the old days in Biazza Ridge and the super fun shaving cream fights we would have on the last day of school. Memories...

Well, the next generation loved it just as much as I did.

Kainoa and Reedy
(Is it just me, or does Kainoa's head look photo shopped onto his body here?)

Brooklyn and Teija

Teija, LOOK OUT!!!! Toa's got THAT look in his eye!


Such a good sport. Still happy after all that hair yankin'

Deacon and Kati (the Mr. and Mrs.)

Reed and his shaving cream bomb.
I'd hate to be on the receiving end of that bad boy.

Good ol' Eli. Making that face that just get's me every time.
Seriously, how can you NOT smile when looking at him...
and also wonder what he just did
or what he's about to do...

the damage...

While cleaning, I came across a note book that one of my kids uses to draw in. Since it's supposed to be a secret, I won't say who. I'll translate for you.

Dear sekrit (secret) book

Ihavea crase(crazy)
Brethr(brother)and his
nam(name)is Deacon.
(amazingly, Deacon is spelled right!)

Apparently, that's some super duper secret...as if we don't already know he's crazy. Well...Eli's probably more crazy.

Hello, Hello, Hello, Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can here me...Is there anybody home?

AAAAAAAANNNNNND I'm back! I know, I know, I don't even want to THINK about how long it's been since my last post. First our internet went down, then our computer went down, and then my camera went down. So far I've fixed 2 out of 3 of the problems. No good camera yet, but I've got my video camera that takes pictures...lame, grainey, fuzzy pictures...which may not seem like a big deal to some of you, but if you've seen some of my friend's blogs with their AMAZING picture taking skills, well, let's just say it's a wee bit intimidating! Life has been so busy that I haven't had more than a few moments to my self lately. BUT, I'm changing that. I'm taking charge! I'm simplifying everything around me so that I have more TIME. I've taken up sewing again and I'm in love with it all over. I have a special project I'm working on and I'm all sorts of excited about it. Here's a preview...

I'll post the final product later.

So, long story short, I'm back. I. AM. BACK.

ps...bonus points to my peeps who can tell me what song is in my title...come one...if you're my kin you've got to know this one...
