These two kids have a pretty wild imagination, and it seems like they think about candy and sweets a lot. I took them out to a local trail nearby our house and while we were walking, I asked them if they could live on their own planet what would it be like.
Kristin: Our planet would be called Kaykris, otherwise known as Candyland. It would be a purple planet.
Kristin: There would be no bugs.
Kayla: YEAH! Only butterflies.
Kayla: The grass would be purple. The sky is made out of cotton candy and the clouds are made out of marshmallows.
Kristin: Houses would be made out of gingerbread and cars would be made out of gummy bears.
Kristin: I would be the princess, and Kayla would be the Queen.
Kayla: Our clothes would be made out of fruit roll-ups : )
Kristin: If you steal something, you would go to jail.
Sounds like my kind of planet, where can I buy my ticket to Kaykris!
Kristin had her first piano recital last week. She played "We wish you a Merry Christmas" and did a stellar job. Really proud of her. I have to try and figure out how to convert this video we took and upload it. She has never really had stage fright, and that night was no exception. However, it was funny to see her run up to the piano, place her notes on top, play the song, then quickly run off leaving her notes laying there. I had to tell her to go back and grab the sheets.
Fall/winter is the best time of year for the kids. Thanksgiving, Christmas, presents, and vacations. The kids also love seeing the seasons change, leaves falling on the ground, and best of all, making leaf piles and jumping in.
I thought this was the sweetest thing. While other kids had written they were thankful for toys, games, and other material items, Kayla had written she was thankful for her family.
Some humor for your Thanksgiving day. While listening to Justin Bieber, Kayla asks, is that a girl singing? We explain to her, no, it's a boy. He just hasn't gone through puberty so his voice sounds a little like a girl. Once he goes through puberty, his voice will change and sound more deeper. A few minutes pass by. "Daddy, have you gone through Pilgrim yet, since your voice doesn't sound like a girl?"
Kristin turns 7 years old today. I'm a little overwhelmed by the fact that she is seven, yes SEVEN years old. My little girl is growing so fast. Please, please, please, slow down.
Since her birthday falls on a weekday, we celebrated with her yesterday, by going to the Exploratorium in San Francisco. I remember visiting the place when I was young, and it was the coolest thing ever. I went back last year for an engagement shoot, and the place is still awesome.
I don't know why, but the kids loved playing with the magnet and iron sand.
Kayla is always up for a snack, especially if its fruit.
