This is Damian making Jesus on the cross out of play dough. I don't know where he saw this, but this is what he made.
Today is Friday, in our house otherwise known as pizza Friday. Most of the time I make homemade pizza , but when I'm lazy I go to Sam's Club and buy one. I also buy the veggie tray to put out and chips. This is an easy meal and the kids love it. Today is also ice cream Friday. We have a real nice ice cream man named Joe and on Friday he sells all ice cream for $1.00. If we are really lucky post housing buys it and we get free ice cream. The kids love ice cream Friday too. It seems a little weird that on the mainland it is winter and here it is ice cream weather. In fact Joe comes every week all year. I guess there is no rest if you are the ice cream man in Hawaii. Today I'm feeling a little lazy so I will probably take a trip to Sam's.
update on mom. She does have MDS and will start some sort of treatment in a few weeks. She will have to miss her yearly trip to Hawaii in May, but next year she can come if all goes well.
I hope everyone has a nice weekend.

My mom is going to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center tomorrow to find out if she indeed does have MDS and what type of treatment she needs. This is the place she was treated for breast cancer 14 years ago. This is the place that made her survival likely. This is the place that will try to cure her again. This place where my Savior will be tomorrow. This and many other places where people need Him to be. This song I dedicate to My Savior and to my mom. He will be there today, tomorrow and forever. No matter where we are led He will be there no matter what until we see Him face to face and Grace Amazing takes us home.

This is the arcade part of the movie theater. Do movie theater's still have arcades? This room also becomes a sports bar on NFL Sunday in the winter. Home of the Dallas Cowboys. As my neighbor will tell you you can't come to my sports bar unless you root for the Cowboys. This is very authentic when you add my bunch of screaming kids.

After reading this I know who it won't be.

Please pray for my mom who is in the hospital with some sort of infection they don't know what it is. This is one of my favorite songs that I play all the time. My kids hear this daily before school and it calms everyone. To me it is just plain truth.

I didn't get a chance to get on the computer yesterday so today I am posting the pictures from Valentine's Day. The top one is of Darrian in his Valentine costume he made at school. The second one is the vase and flowers he made at school. The third pic are the flowers Dominic bought me. He left them by the coffee pot so I got them in the morning. The last one is a little box Darrian made at school for me that was filled with candy.
I gave Darrian a heart shaped lollypop that morning and when he went to school the teacher asked him where he got the lollypop from and he said "Miley Cyrus." I didn't know Hannah Montana lived here.

Yesterday the kids celebrated the Chinese New Year at school where my son Jr. informed them that he doesn't celebrate it because he is a Christian. I told him you are allowed to celebrate the Chinese New Year you just don't really believe in the year of the Lion and all that stuff. Especially how it pertains to the future. Anyway Darrian has an extremely creative preschool teacher who helped them make the dragon and the hat. He is very lucky. Like I could actually make this hat! Anyway he came off his bus with the hat on yelling happy new year in Chinese, see above title, and then informed me he had seen fire dancers but no real fire. I guess it's a safety issue. So have a great day and Gung hay fat choy!

This might be a little better for some.

Brandon walking away after receiving his award for 3.7 average. I wasn't able to get more pictures because I was sitting in the back and didn't realize when he was called since his colonel goes about 90 miles an hour. Kind of like role call instead of presenting awards. He has 90 cadets so he tries to get through it as timely as possible. All in all the ceremony is nice anyway. Only lasting about an hour. There is one every quarter of the school year.
