Hope we get to sled in some real snow soon – maybe next month…
Oscar tried really hard last week, amidst many other distractions, and learned this song in time for Christmas.
He surprised his teacher by learning all the left hand notes.
We’re all very proud of him.
Hooray for Christmas music!
(His first lesson was April 20th)
The latest craze (song) out there is Gangnam Style.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s this:
Kinda ridiculous, but totally fun.
However I’m not trying to blog this. (even though I just did – Boom.)
I’m actually trying share a moment from Oscar’s day..
MEANWHILE, across town, Oscar gets out of school. He goes to chess club for an hour, which he loves (yay!) from 3:30 to 4:30.
After that, my friend Belinda brings her son Brayden, plus Oscar and Shayan, and Brayden’s twin sister Kayleigh, across town to JK for soccer practice.
(and this saves me the cross town trip so I luvvvvv her)…
We’re soccer moms together.
Tonight, AFTER THE GIANTS WON, AGAIN, I remembered something, so I texted her. Here is the convo:
(Did I mention the World Series?!?
MadBum was crazy good!
or should I say…. Num Num style)
Our Aunt Pam is battling cancer. Please pray for her, or send a hopeful thought her way.
And Pam, Oscar and Lucy have a quick message for you:
LOVE and Hugs!!
Here are the last photos from a Very. Happy. Birthday.

This was at breakfast. Oscar got what he asked for: an iPhone.
I know, I know, hold your horses. First of all, it’s not actually functioning as a phone (no sim card), although it does have internet. And, we didn’t go out and get it. It’s a hand-me-down from Mark, from when he upgraded to the 4S. He uses it to play games, and he is newly on Instagram (more on that in a future post).
He has been using it already, but now it’s “his”, to keep with him, manage, and not share with Lucy.
Not a single pic during the day. :( Oscar went to school. He said it was good. I picked him up, with chocolate milk in hand. We drove across town to get Lucy, which is our new normal thing. Then we came home and started cooking dinner.
This is the shot Kiera got with her phone, as seen above. (We’re all a little camera phone / Instagram addicted around here lately. I love it.) And, there’s no photo, (what was I thinking?!) but we also had a visit from Lucy’s Godfather, Carlo, and his soon-to-be wife Flor. They helped us sing happy birthday.
P.S. A song for Oscar
