The first time you do something: Its funny.
The second time you do the same thing it is : Annoying
The third time you do the same thing (in a row): Really Annoying
The fourth time: You get sent to your room.
The fifth time: You get sent to bed with no BED TIME SNACK (that's a really big deal at our home)
SOOOO...all afternoon, after church we kept repeating the rules. Because Aaron kept repeating the annoying noises. After dinner he seemed to stop just in time for him to sit down and watch the movie Paul and I were watching. "Never Been Kissed".
So here is Aaron all snuggled up to Paul, in his P.J.'s, ready for bed. The end of the movie comes when Drew Barrymore is waiting to be kissed by Michael Vartan, MY FAV PART (Heidi's). She gets the first kiss, and I ooh, I am loving it. Then the second kiss comes. Aaron blurts out,
"TWICE IS ANNOYING!"
Ya, we all busted out laughing. He got our point and pointed it out to us.
What a boy.

"Brittany sings with her Show Choir from Pueblo Middle School".
They sang at the school carnival for Rachel's and Aaron's school, Paloma. Brittany was the cutest (why wouldn't she be?). They sang and danced for a very large crowd. I'd say around 500 kids, family and crazy people where there. We fit right in as we watched them perform on an outdoor stage. It was a little hard to hear, but we were in the front row. Brittany even did a solo in the last song and "nailed it". We loved watching and thought you'd like to know about our "Super Star". Go Brittany, Go Brittany. In May she will be going to California for the "Show Choir Tour." ( Brandon did this the last three years, its Brittany's turn, oh and Heidi gets to go as a chaperon. ) We love our family of singers.

Heidi had just got a hat from the pro shop because she had forgotten her hat in the car. Lucky for her she used her head and handed Ana Ivanovic the new hat for her to sign. Ana was so kind and signed right in the middle. Then she hung out for a photo with Paul and Heidi. What a cutie!
Here is Mr. Roger Federer. Tommy, Kevin and Paul watched three feet away from him as he practiced. Heidi bolted to the gate she know Roger would leave from. She had a photo she wanted him to sign that she had taken two years earlier. When the practice was done an hour later and about 50 people around her...she was able to tell Federer, "Roger, I took this picture of you two years ago when I was here"...he signed it, and Heidi left with her heart jumping up and down. YEA!
Our next stop was Sea World. Paul surprised Heidi with "Breakfast with Shamu". Heidi loves to have breakfast, what a great plan...and it was very yummy too. The buffet was full of great food. French toast, biscuit and gravy, eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit salad, croissant's, danish, cereal etc... Heidi was in heaven. The trainer talked and shamu swam and showed off his skills. Paul and Heidi were one of the last to leave the hour long breakfast. Everyone should do this!!
Our next stop was the Wild Arctic. We took a "helli" ride and got sick...then we got to see the cold animals. Our fav was the Polar Bears. The were eating, then the starting fighting. What fun to watch. These guys were fun.
Thanks to Steve and Shannon Steenhoek for letting us stay at there home. Also the the whole Birchall family for letting us stay in there home for 2 days. Mostly we like to thank Heidi's mom, Connie. Without her we couldn't have made this trip. Thank you.

Sunday afternoon Heidi's family (aka John and Connie Geier, Ellen, Chris and Chad Timothy, John with Tess and Kai). The dinner was salads and sandwiches, so there would be room for the chocolate cake and ice cream.
Brandon was in charge of all photos and video. He learned what settings not to use, but got a few good PIRATE shots. We love party's. Mostly the cake and ice cream.
