Preschool Style

The other day Ethan heard a few strums of PSY Gangnam Style on the radio and said 'Woah that is Preschool Style'.  I told him it was called Gangnam Style and he said no it was Preschool Style and he would show me when we got home.

Apparently for his school Christmas program they have been learning this song to sing for the parents.

Happy Halloween

This year Ethan was a superhero.  When asked what kind of superhero he was by others he would say 'a black one!'.

We had a neighborhood Halloween block party this year:

Everyone was so cute - I esp. love the teachers costumes.

Goofing around with Daddy.

Finally set to go trick or treating (notice the mask grew to include a Fu Manchu).

Ethan had once piece of candy that night, then the next day proceeded to forget all about it even though he ran by his pumpkin bowl of candy 500 times.

But don't worry, Bob and I didn't leave the candy lonely.

After Halloween, E was finally excited to dress up for next year (completely uninterested this time around) and requested to go as a heart - Daddy as the left atrium, Mommy as the valve and him as the left ventricle  (the left side because it receives oxygenated blood natch).  See you as a heart (well, half of one anyways) next year!

Pumpkin Patching


P1170646

We went to two different patches this year: the same bounce house pumpkin patch that we went to last year for jumping fun, and then another patch to check out the pumpkins and fun rides.  This year we decided to check out Spina Farms in San Jose.


While we visited the patch because it offered train, pony and hay rides, Ethan only wanted to jump on the hale bales and navigate the wheelbarrow between the pumpkins. We all had a great time, and it was even better because Nai Nai was visiting and able to come with us.

Ethan turns 4!

Birthday

Happy birthday to my little one!  We love you so much!  It's amazing how every day, even though we often do the same things, is always a little bit different.  We feel like the luckiest parents to be able to learn and grow and play along with you!

Silicon Valley Long Course Tri (SVLC)

P1160983



 Bob ran his first half iron man!  Woot, go Bob!  =)  The SVLC was held at Lake Almaden in San Jose.

We were so excited to go cheer him on...only we got a bit distracted by all the geese (Ethan's favorite!).

P1160991 

In the brief time it went to go watch them wade into the Lake, we just missed Bob crossing the finish line.
 Boo. So here is to a reenactment:

Completed finishing time?  5:50.  And yet he still looks spry.  

 And here is the whole team.  Congrats everyone!P1160994
