Below are a few pics I uploaded and saved back around January 10th (just after Angie's birthday) with the intentions of adding captions and posting the blog the next day. Um...that didn't happen. But here are the pics with captions below for your enjoyment!
One week after the kids started school John's (Juancho) 4th grade class had a school concert called the Jungle Beat. Mind you, John is still very basic in his English knowledge and comprehension...and over 8 songs were sung (with motions!) at this concert. He was brave and got up there and bopped along with the rest of the crew...even belted out a few lyrics that he had learned. It's hard to see in this pic, but John is the boy on the far right, front row with light blue pants and a blue sweatshirt. He also has a tiger mask on. He was beaming with pride after their performance...how exciting for him!
Our little reader - I often find her in a corner or on the couch 'reading'. We definitely encourage that behavior! :)
Angie at the end of her birthday dinner (spaghetti) asking "Regalos?", which means "Presents?"
Angie's birthday was on Wed. January 9th - she turned 3! She was quite thrilled with the celebration of her...here she is showing off her birthday cupcake! (pics from her birthday party will follow in another post).
John and Laura picked out these fairy princess items (from the Target $1 spot - love it!) to give Angie for her birthday...she was VERY excited about them and was a fairy for the rest of the night! (we thought the fairy dress-up went quite well with her fuzzy pink pajamas too!)
Angie opening her 'dress up shoes' from John. Can you see the excitement in her eyes? It's so fun to be celebrated!
Angie helped make her own cupcakes on her birthday...here she is licking the spoon after the cupcakes were put in the oven to cook.
And here she is licking the frosting off the top of the completed cupcakes...I think the frosting may have been the only part of the cupcake she ate! :)
Fun with Frosting - Part 1
Angie wasn't quite sure what to do with herself when Daddy brought out her cupcake and 3 flaming candles...with everyone singing to her. She was smiled and laughed and laughed. We had to remind her that the next step was to blow out the candles!
