Today is Robert's 34th Birthday. I can't believe it's been 8 1/2 years since we met. Anyone who really knows Robert knows that he really hates to have his picture taken, even more than I do. It's really hard to get good pictures of him because he insists on making goofy faces, closing his eyes or keeping his sunglasses on.

Happy Birthday Robert/Daddy! We love you very much and hope that you have an awesome day and that us surprising you at work didn't cause too much trauma. If you see him today please wish him a Happy Birthday.

Twilight Birthday

My good friend Marissa bought me these Bella & Edward stamps for my birthday last month and sadly they haven't seen ink. I think I was waiting for the perfect project. Today, I found it. Robert's Birthday Card. Now you are probably thinking "Why would Cula make Robert a Twilight themed birthday card?" Well, here's your answer... I love Twilight, therefore Robert has to deal with all things Twilight.

Here's the card:
Here's the inside
I normally don't add anything to the inside of my cards but I couldn't help myself. Let me explain; last year when I was caught up in the Twilight Frenzy along with the rest of the world, Robert was making fun of Twilight Vampires and how instead of bursting into flames when they step into the sun, they sparkle like diamonds. He then proceeded to stand in front on the large picture window in our dining room and pull up his shirt and say "Am I Sparkling?". He had me on the floor laughing so hard.
As payback for making fun of me, he now had to deal with anything Twilight I do for him.

Daddy, We Got You Wolverine!

Tuesday night I took Sage with me to Target to buy him some new school shoes as well as Robert's Birthday present. Robert has been wanting the movie X-Men Origin's Wolverine movie ever since it came out, so Sage and I decided to pick it up for Robert.

We also decided to get him an iTunes gift card to feed his music obsession.

While in the store and all the way home I kept telling Sage not to tell his Daddy about the presents we just bought because it was a surprise for his Daddy's Birthday. He promised he wouldn't but as soon we got out of the van and into the house, he proudly announced to Robert that he couldn't tell him about the Wolverine Movie and iTunes card because it was a secret for his birthday. Needless to say the surprise was ruined but seriously if your gonna have your birthday surprise ruined isn't that the way you'd want it to happen?

This Is It

Last Saturday Kelley and I went and saw This Is It. It was AMAZING! I will be buying it as soon as it is released on DVD. My favorite parts were Thriller, Smooth Criminal and They Don't Care About Us.

Here's some of my favorite shots from the film.

You Are Not Alone

Smooth Criminal
They did this awesome thing were they put Michael into an old Black & White movie with Humphrey Bogart. It was really cool.

The Way You Make Me Feel
More Smooth Criminal Awesomeness

I would have loved to attend this concert. It's such a shame that Michael had to die, the music world will never be the same. No one is as genius or amazing as Michael Jackson!

Spiderman & Fairy

Wow... this post is way over due! Sage of course had to be Spiderman for Halloween. Aurora still doesn't really care so I got to pick her costume{I don't think I'll get to do that ever again}. My Mom made her a fairy dress. They both LOVED their costumes and continue to wear them around the house.

I was released from my church calling today. I have come to truly love the Young Women in our ward not only as girls but as my own Daughters. I will forever be grateful to the girls in our ward for the lessons they have taught me. I have enjoyed teaching them each week and will miss being apart of the Young Women's organization. I look forward to our Trampoline Sleepovers and Chick-Flick Movie Nights.

Flash Back Friday - Vandalism

Okay... so this flashback isn't too far back, but it's still in the past.

Last week on my birthday I went to Young Women's and during the activity Kelley, Lillian and Lindsey snuck out and decorated(vandalized) my van. They heped make my birthday a memorable one. I love my girls so much!

Adopted Family

Sage has adopted his own little family. He met Analia at Preschool Last year and they continue to be the best of friends. Sage also loves Analia's brother Adrian so much that he calls him his brother.

Sage told me last week that he wanted to Marry Analia when he grows up. It was soooo cute and I would love to have Analia as my Daughter-In-Law. Her Mother and I have accepted the fact that these two will be inseparable for the rest of their lives and we'd love to be related!
