Owen's Birthday

Owen had his 6th birthday party yesterday. He chose a lego theme this year. It was a really fun theme to work with. We had a lego building contest, lego brick cake, and everyone took home a small lego set. The cake took me much longer than I thought it would to make. It's not may best cake but Owen liked it, and thats what really matters.
Owen gets very shy when he is the focus of attention and usually does something silly. This year was no exception. After we finished singing he decided to not blow out the candles.
So everyone is hollering blow Owen blow, he just sits there until I inform him that the wax is going to melt all over the cake. He then procedes to blow each one out individualy. It took forever but he had everyone in stitches. He is such the entertainer. Here is my favorite shot of him from the day.

Kitty Shopping

Today we went "kitty" shopping. After much pleading we have given in and decited to get a kitten. We will be picking it up from my parents next week. In order to be ready we needed a few things so off to the store we went. Fiona is the one who talked Poppa into the kitty, which was not hard for her to do. If it had been any one else I am not so sure it would be happening. Just wait until the other 3 figure this one out! Anyway it was so much fun to watch them discuss which type of litter box and what color it should be. Who knew it would spark such debate? We also got a leash and harness, I was going to get a collar but decided that they might choke the poor thing to death, Fiona wanted pink but the boys vetoed that and they compromised on red. As Miles put it, "pink is really red washed out". We then had to get a toy, and treats, just like Moochie has. Moochie being my Mom's cat and the reason Fiona decided she wanted a pet. I stopped at buying the bed hoping that I can make something, and actually get the kitty to use the bed instead of someone's pillow

Now we wait to bring kitty home. Everone is so excited!

Young Voters

This evening David and I were discussing the upcoming election. Miles and Owen have been learning the history of voting and the importance of of the event in our counrty. Sitting in the living room Owen was writing the canidates names on a piece of paper and the asking Miles which one he was going to vote for and then circling the answer. They chose McCain as I am sure they have heard his name a lot more around our house than the other one. Owen made flags with "MuKun"s name on them and then they proceded to parade around the house repeating "vote for Mccain". Seeing another teachable moment we stopped them as asked them why they chose McCain, telling them everyone needs to have a good reason why they choose the person they want to be president. The responses were hysterical.

Miles: "I know, because it(his name) has a cane in it and you need a cane to go hiking and camping.

Owen: He wanted to have the same answer as Miles but we told him it was important to have your own reason and not just do what everybody else does. So his answer was "because you need a cane when you are old and we love old people.

So that was our laugh for the evening, I hope you get a chuckle out of it too. Oh and here is a photo, did you think I would just use words? :)
