February catch up

Well the computer was down for most of February so now I am posting what's been going on with us this past month.

Mana turned 5 on Feb. 3. We attempted to make her a Build-A-Bear Workshop cake. The reason part of the bear is missing, is that Mana got ahold of the cake before we put the 2 parts of the bear together. I guess it tasted so good she just kept digging into his shoulder. We decided not to wait to make frosting, as this cake took a while to make, so we just at it like this.

Anu got his Rainforest Jumparoo just like his cousin Haley has. It didn't take him too long to realize that it's pretty fun to jump in it.

We got a new leather couch set from an awesome guy on Craigslist...Note Alani has fallen asleep on it, it's so comfortable.

Anu got his first baby food when he was 5 and a half months old. Alani took the photos.

Anu started sitting up at 5 months old. Now you can't get him to lie down, he likes his new perspective much better!

Anu and his cousin Haley spent some time in the papasan chair. But now we have new couches, the papasan is gone. Sad, but at least there is a happy college kid out there who is using it now.

Three sisters posing in their headbands they got from the Canaans for Christmas.

Ode to Peace by Kawai

Peace is happiness
Peace is joy
Peace is a flowing stream
Peace is love
Peace is a graceful dove gliding in the sky
Peace is a newborn baby smiling
Peace is a sleepy koala bear hanging in a rough branchy tree
Peace is a lovely rose garden
Peace is a snuggly calico kitten on a snowy day resting by a brick fireplace
Peace is a family spending time together
Peace is what we want
