We're Back!

Hey, blog-goers, Cutiepie here! I am officially in charge of this blog now! It's been almost two years now; sorry about that. I was promised responsibility of blogging two years ago, but I was never told how to do it. Never mind that, the Super Starrs are back! Time for recording some of the past two years! Let's do this thing! ;)

This is the picture we used for our Christmas card 2009. Short Stuff, Cutiepie, and The Boy were all sick at that time of year, so it seemed like the perfect picture to put on the card.

Short Stuff and Cutiepie performed a cheer last Independence Day and put on this patriotic getup!

Well, that's it for now. Some stars are on stage, some are in the sky. But California is where you'll find these Super Starrs. 'Bye!

We're Back, Baby!

Well, it has been a long school year (thank you, seminary!) but we're ready to jump back into the world of blogging! Stay tuned for more coming soon - same bat time, same bat channel. For now, let's take a look back at what you may have missed. Cooking with The Dad. Cutiepie and The Boy both have the requisite dish towel-over-shoulder, as is always the case when The Dad cooks.

Smiling for Christmas photos after church (in front of the undecorated tree) for holiday cards.

I spent 3 good days working on painting the harlequin patterned wall in the music room.

Cutiepie's Science Fair project: to discover which cake flavor results in the poofiest cake. It was Classic Yellow at 6.8 cm.

Walking on Air

Cutiepie has become an amateur photographer since she received her own camera. She loves to capture candid shots of Short Stuff and The Boy as well. This is one of her editorial shots. She was laying on a blanket at a community event and decided to get a shot of her shoes in the air against the backdrop of pure blue sky. You would never guess that all around her there were children dancing and music playing and people eating and games and activities in every direction. I especially love the fact that you can see the words "All Star" on her Converse - that says it all!

May The Force Be With You

The Boy stands up to Vader at the Star Wars Exhibit in DC with CC. According to The Boy, "This is the real costume that Darth Vader used. Everything else you see below is also real: Han Solo, Chewbacca and the Cherry Blossoms."

CC comes between two men... er, a man and his Wookiee.

The Boy, The Dad and the Cherry Blossoms. What more is there?

Swimming, Anyone?

Our pool is finished and we have been enjoying it (after school and homework) for a couple of weeks now. The Dad's barbecue is done too, so we have also been enjoying some great summertime meals. But it's not just chicken and burgers - he makes some mean grilled veggies... scrumptious! So now the countdown is underway: 8 more school days and we're officially plunging into summer! After that, we expect to be wrinkly, puckered and thoroughly waterlogged all day long.

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Check out the girls in the 'before and after' photos. (Cutiepie is staying true to the idea that in the 'before' photo you should look unhappy.) They decided to donate their hair to Locks of Love. The girls both had the required ten-inch minimum length, so this time they could donate together. (Short Stuff has donated her hair once before.) Bye-bye, hippie hair... Hello, short and sassy!
