Christmas Happenings & Good/Bad Christmas Songs...

Well, it seems as if only yesterday it was Christmas and now it is here again!! Me and Shaniqua (not to mention Patapat and Jessy) are so excited. We have decked our halls and the outside of out house, both of which look FABULOUS! BTW, Shaniqua is expecting a girl and her due date is January 2nd. Some names we've been thinking about are Junerly, Ulimanny, Jymter, Puton, Jumlarny, Qwere, Ulaze, Remvly, Pollijan, Nolly, Werly and, finally, Sally. We can't wait!

So, a post on our friends blog inspired us to put down our "Good" and "Bad" Christmas songs.

"Grown Up Christmas List"
"Mary Did You Know" (especially when Shaniqua sings it!!)
"Sleigh Ride"
"Winter Wonderland"
"Celebrate Me Home"
"Grandma Got Ran Over By A Raindeer"
"The First Noel"
"Joy To The World"
"Jingle Bells"
"The Christmas Song"
"Jingle Bell Rock"
"Carol of the Bells"
and any other song we missed.

"Oh Holy Night", by Josh Groban (although Braden and...some others...would disagree.)

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of you! And a Happy New Year!

Sonter Came to See Baby!

Yesterday Sonter came to see the baby and he was going to hold the baby but right when he picked him up he did a snot-barf rocket! Bobert ran and said, " don't be mad just put a banana in your ear!" he was so mad he said ADIOS AMIGOS and went on the pegs of his dad's bike. Yeah it was a sad and short visit! We hope that Sonter is doing ok and we hope he is not mad at us!

Happy Birthdays

It's been a long time! It's been a very busy, long time! Well our new baby boy was born on Aug. 17th (he was very late!) He was born at 12midnight exactly! His birthday was almost on the 16th but he liked the 17th better as a birthdate. He is the cutest....

...don't you think so?? This was a very happy birthday even though I was in labor for 49 hours and 10 minutes!

Anyways, we're having another birthday in our family...TODAY! Today is our wonderful Bobert's birthday! We are making him Sit Down Splat and Have Some Fat for his desert tonight. Sadly, he broke his wrist last night when we went out to dinner with some friends. We went back to their house and played Sardines. He was climbing on a fence and he fell off and landed on his wrist. So his happy birthday is also a painful one. But I think our desert will make him happy!

So that's the update from our Family!

Last week I was on Facebook updating my profile and everything. I was just surfin around and then I started searching random names of people I knew while I was growing up. Well, I found Ken!

Ken was my good buddy from 2nd grade! We were best friends for a long time until he moved to Florida. Well I asked him to be my friend on Facebook and then he accepted. I talked to him and we arranged for him to come and visit us!

We had so much fun and it was just like the old days! He is so fun and crazy! He is a model so I included some of the model shots he's done.

This is Ken at our house being crazy.

This is a model shot he did for a hat store in Michigain (where Ken lives now).

This is a shot of Ken modeling an old 50's suit for a costume store.

And this is me and Ken together!

We were so excited to have him come for a few days! He became very good friends with Patagonia and all she can do is talk about him! Can't wait to see you again Ken!

By the way...Shanique is VERY pregnant with Jessy who is expected...on the 8th!

This is me, I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be now, gonna let the light shine on me...

I finally feel like I am recovering after an exhausting few months of choreographing and teaching all the dances for Dance Festival 2008. Sheniqua and I couldn't believe it when we got the call to come up with all of the dances. Not because we don't have the talent, obviously we do, but because Sheniqua just had 2 babies and lost a leg and we've had Spongebob and Patrick here all summer, not to mention the Jonas Brothers Concert tour Sheniqua has been on, it has just been very busy for us. But of course, we never turn down a calling so we accepted, and after hearing all of the comments, we know that they couldn't have asked better people to choreograph these dances.

The highlight was the fancy, gold blouses that the Cha-Cha boys got to wear. I almost cried of delight when I saw them in their shimmery, ruffly blouses. I was hoping to buy one myself, but just couldn't get my hands on them as they sold out instantly.

This is Preston. He was one of the boys that I taught the dance to! One night after practice we went to In-N-Out and he got ketchup all over his blouse. He started screaming "MY BLOOOOUUUUUUSSSE! MY BLOUSE!" He took his Dance Festival-ing very serious. We had to calm him down and take his blouse to dry cleaning and he ended up being okay.

You can tell why I am glad that I can just relax now.... Phew!

The girls and I

Here I am with my best girlfriends at Disneyland. We each dressed up as a princess, I am standing to the left of Belle.
We had a blast yesterday when we went. We stood in line for 5 hours for the Toy Story ride at California Adventure. We were standing right behind these very tall boys and their mom. One of the boys was eating a pickle. I wish I would have gotten a picture of them. I think we would have been great friends. Patapat would love them.

...Kelly...The Big Bear...

I feel like crying as I write this post...

We went to go visit Kelly yesterday, after church. Well, Kelly has found a wife and they had a little cub...

I am so happy for him! But it seems like he has kind of forgotten us. As we went up to him he kinda did this...

...and this...

The reason I feel like crying is because I have a deep emotional connection with this wonderful bear!!! Well, because we didn't want any more limbs lost in our family, we hurried back to our car. I am sad that Kelly isn't the little bear he was. I'm glad Ellen isn't going to take us on any emotional roller coasters and stay small and innocent.

Anyways, To cheer us all up we made up names for his cub and for his wife (even though we didn't see her.)
The name we came up for the cub is: Kewly!
The name we came up for the momma bear is: Stacy!

If you didn't notice we like to name things, in our family.


Spongebob and Patrick

Sheniqua didn't know that Spongebob and Patrick were here so as she went into the the bathroom she just started to put her leg into the bathtub to take a bath and then i heard her SCREAM! I was terrified, i had thought that she had fell and hurt herself, so i ran upstairs and saw her looking into the bathtub wondering why there was a sponge, a starfish, little suitcases, a rock, and a pineapple in there bathtub. So i sat down with her and explained the whole thing to her and introduced them to her. Sheniqua and Patapat love having them here and so do I, they are a joy to have them in our home unlike some other people (Squidward, there neighbor).

Hey Shaniqua...

Hey Shaniqua,

Joe Jonas here and I have heard a lot about you recently. I know you are a big fan and I wanted to give you the opportunity to meet me. I started a charity not to long ago, coincidentally enough, for girls who wanted to be a pop star but now can't because their legs got bit off by a bear, called "WE DON'T NEED NO BEAR HUGS."
I wondered if you wanted to come to my next event where I will have all of the girls whose legs got bit off by bears and want to be pop stars be the opening singers at mine and my brothers concert in San Diego.

Just let me know if you are interested.

Please contact me at (555) 555-5555 or email me at JoeBrolovesgirlswhogottheirlegsbitoffbybears@wedon'tneedno

Love ya,
Joe Jonas (You can call me Joe-Joe)

Can I stay with you?

Hey Bobby,

My friend Patrick and I are coming to Southern Cal. for a visit and wondered if we could stay with you? We won't be much trouble, just have the bath water ready and we are good to go.
We can't wait to meet Shaniqua and little Patapat and of course Ellen. We also hear your cute cousin Emma might be in town, we would like to see her too.
It's been forever since I've seen you! It will be great to see you again, just like old times.

Your friend,

Spongebob Squarepants

Even Storybook bears get to big...We had to release Kelly into the wild. He bit Shaniqua's leg off on Sunday night. It was very tragic. This is him loping off into his true home.

Hollywood's Disney stars Selena Gomez and The Jonas Brothers

As bobert and i were shoping in Hollywood, we bumped into Selena Gomez! It was an awesome experience because Bobert is a huge fan of that disney star! This is a pic of Selena Gomez laughing at one of bobert's silliest jokes, LOL! And to make Bobert jealous I told him that I am a bigger fan of the Joe bros. (Hopefully next time we can see them)!
