Like Father Like Son

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010 by Mom

Hi there!  Cole here.  I just wanted to share with you how my 2nd Christmas went.  My mom says I’m still too young to really understand the concept of Christmas and that Santa guy but I still had lots of fun.

On Christmas Eve, Daddy read me a great story before we headed to the family party. I just love reading with my Daddy.

At the party, I got to play with my cousin Madeline. She’s the cousin who is closest in age to me. I like to follow her around.

But most of the time I pushed around this music making toy. I like to push toys around. I hope I get something to push from Santa.

While Grace and the other cousins were doing karaoke, I was trying to get my Mom to tickle me.

All the presents wore me out. I was ready for bed in my sock monkey jammies. This time, Uncle Shane and I were giving my Aunt Cara a big hug.

On Christmas morning, I received the best gift ever! It’s something I can push, it blows bubbles, and while pushing it, I look just like my Daddy. It’s my very own lawn mower. Now I can help him mow the lawn on the weekends.

Some gifts I received was a trash truck. My Papa and Yaya felt that it might help me over come my fear of the dreaded weekly trash truck.

And I also got this cool Kawasaki ATV (more on this later). Thanks everyone for the best Christmas ever! I’ve got some crusin’ to do.

Jedi Master Cole

Saturday, January 9th, 2010 by Mom

Hello again. It’s me Cole. I just wanted to share an awesome experience I had recently at my friend Diego’s 3rd birthday last month. It was so cool. Can you say Star Wars theme. My Dad’s dream party. Oh yeah, my sister is super busy blogging about her Scooby Doo birthday party so I’ll include her in on this post too.

Well, here I am practicing my Jedi skills. I know, I’m a natural.

The party started off like any other party with some good eats.

Then it was time for some crafts.
SnowVader2009 194

Hey Stormtrooper Grace! Quit fooling around. It’s time for the pinata!
SnowVader2009 187

It was a Darth Vader pinata by the way.

I’m too little to hit a pinata but my sister did a great job. I think this was the first time Grace has hit a pinata. She’s so cool.
SnowVader2009 208

Ah ha! I found me some loot. Num num num.
SnowVader2009 210

Afterward was the Clone Wars movie viewing in the next room. We had popcorn too.
SnowVader2009 217

Finally it was time for our special guests to arrive. Grace couldn’t contain herself she was so curious.
SnowVader2009 220

Could it be? The Obi Wan Kenobi!
SnowVader2009 222

He was there to teach all the young ones how to fight like a Jedi.
SnowVader2009 228

This was when it got real fun. Darth Vader made an appearance too.
SnowVader2009 229

But he had the dark side on his mind. It was a great fight.
SnowVader2009 232

In the end, Obi Wan and Darth Vader made up and became good friends.
SnowVader2009 241

It was time for cupcakes that had blue icing on it. Grace was showing off her blue tongue.
SnowVader2009 242

No blue icing for me. Just plain old vanilla. But I wanted to make sure my tongue didn’t turn blue anyways.
SnowVader2009 258

Thanks Diego for an awesome party. Hey, you got a little something on your face birthday boy.
SnowVader2009 249

Wow, this blogging stuff is hard work. I don’t know how my Mom does it. See ya next time.

Eating Snow

Monday, January 4th, 2010 by Mom

Hello there! It’s me Cole! As you can see I’m ready for the snow at Arrowbear.

Ok. I lost the pj’s. Now I’m ready.
SnowVader2009 003

This white stuff is awesome! So cold and yet so soft.
SnowVader2009 017

I wonder how it tastes.
SnowVader2009 013

Here, you try.
SnowVader2009 021

Num. Num. Num.
SnowVader2009 130

Hey Mom! Is it ok to eat this yellow stuff?
SnowVader2009 138

I’m not sure I like this.
SnowVader2009 029

Is it over yet?
SnowVader2009 031

Daddy is here. I’m much better.
SnowVader2009 137

This still isn’t fun.
SnowVader2009 146

Wow! I’ve never been to a park with snow on it.
SnowVader2009 078

What do we have here?
SnowVader2009 167

Num. Num. Num.
SnowVader2009 164

Cool. More snowballs to eat.
SnowVader2009 156

Thanks for the memories Arrowbear. And the diarrhea too :-(. But that snow was too good to pass up.
