Remembering Grandma June Gale

I found this footage of June on an old MiniDV tape a few weeks ago. Since we didn’t get together for a funeral, I thought it would be fun to hear her voice and think of her. This tape was focused on questions about mom (Sandra), but it’s still fun to hear her and see her. This was taken in May, 2005.

Christmas 2014 Dance Competition

I know this is tricky to post just after the 2015 holidays, but I never posted our Christmas Dance Competition from 2014. So, without further delay, I present you with the 2014 Christmas Dance Competition. I didn’t edit out any of the dance scenes. You may want to fast forward through them. Enjoy:

George’s homemade rocket

George’s homemade rocket

George dreamed up and designed a homemade rocket. He used the materials he had access to and built it to his design. He then invited his good friend Dean over to help him launch the rocket. It didn’t go as high as they wanted it to, but they learned a lot and George is busy scheming the next version of the rocket now. As you read this he might be half way to the moon.

Dad’s Funny Faces

Dad’s Funny Faces

Once upon a time a little boy named Henry got sad, so his Daddy decided to cheer him up! He got the camera and took funny face selfies with the little boy until he was happy again. The End. It was really awesome to watch it all happen. Dad is so creative with his funny faces, we were all laughing! The favorite is the “The Cheesy Smile” or “The Disgusted Snob”.

Fairy Garden

Fairy Garden

In September last year we made a fairy garden. We had a path and all sorts of magical items. There were turtles, a trellis, a mini door, a pond, and flowers. Now it’s kinda gone but it was beautiful when it was new.

Rain, Rain, Rain

Rain, Rain, Rain

We love to go out when it’s raining and play. We’ll make umbrella tents and dare each other to run out and touch the mailbox, splash in the gutter three times and come back. Its so much fun! We also get drenched. I stay inside and read most rainy days but sometimes I’ll come out and splash. Lydia made up a rain song and it gets pretty funny. “Rain rain come and stay never ever go away, but if you dare to ruin my hair I’ll pull down your underwear, but dIMG_20140922_163509ear rain I’ll forgive you if you don’t give me the flu! And I forgot the last verse but I’ll try to remember for you.” This is what she told me after she sang it for me.IMG_20140922_163122

Dessert

Dessert

This year Dad has made alot of amazing pies, cinnamon rolls, and dessert in general. He’s made apple and pumpkin pie, sourdough cinnamon rolls, chocolate chip chore cookies and more. We’ve made cake and Christmas cookies too! Henry’s birthday cake was a fun thing to eat, it had a crushed Oreo road in the shape of a three and Mater and Lightning McQueen on top! Oh, and and 3 candle.
