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!!)
"Celebrate Me Home"
"Grandma Got Ran Over By A Raindeer"
"The First Noel"
"Joy To The World"
"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!

...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!

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!

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!

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.

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...
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.
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).

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
Joe Jonas (You can call me Joe-Joe)
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.

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)!

Our little Patapat and her bodyguard Tex. (Explanation below)
On our way to the hospital to have Patapat, Aunt Jessibell was run over and killed by the General Grevious below, if anyone has seen him please call your local police we believe he was trying to kill Shaniqua so that Patapat would not be born. Patapat is a very special child as you can see, she was born with clothes and shoes on and golden hair.
