S: Angus Family Happenings 2009-2010
FC: Other things may change us, but we start and end as family.
1: Come one, come all... The Circus is coming to town for Kainoa's 5th Birthday 8-22-09
3: Kainoa's 5th Birthday party was a blast!! Guests enjoyed the many booth games and prizes that were won. Stomachs were filled with popcorn, hotdogs and other circus fare.
4: On your first day of kinder, you saw some familiar faces at school. Some of your preschool buddies: Austin, Lauren, Emma, Nicholas & Nadia were at Township too. Mrs. Greeley was your kinder teacher this year. You loved school, and couldn't wait to go to school each day.
5: Other Kinder Happenings: Special Person's Day, Animal Themed School Play and the last day of school.
7: In the Fall of 2009 kainoa joined his first soccer team: the Green Gators. Then, he also played for the fire and the blue tigers.
8: I decided to celebrate my 2009 birthday at Ventura Harbor . I was joined by all my family and my very dear friends. It was a beautiful day. We ate at Andreas-YUM! After eating, we took the kids to the arcade and played awhile. It was a great day and I'm sure to do it again!
9: Ventura Harbor 10-17-09
10: Happy Halloween
11: For Halloween 2009 you were Wolverine. We all went to the T.O. Mall to trick-or-treat and then Maddie came back home to trick-or-treat with us . In 2010, you were Iron-Man (back-to-back super-heroes that will probably be a theme from now on). This was the first Halloween at our new home. We went trick-or-treating at the Topanga Mall with everyone and then we thought that we'd be trick-or-treating all ourselves this year, but then Tom, Sandra and Claire joined us too.
12: Home Sweet Home | Since July 2009 we waited patiently till November o9' to move in, just weeks before Thanksgiving
13: After we were settled and moved in, we had a green-themed house-warming party on 5/1/10. Our friends and family came over to help us make our house a home. | BEFORE AFTER
14: 2009 | This Christmas was bittersweet because, although it was the "most wonderful time of the year" it would be our last with our beloved Curly. The day after Christmas, we said goodbye to our loyal pup. | Merry Christmas
15: Christmas 2010 | Dear Santa, This year please bring me Super Mario Bros DS, a Club Penguin Membership,a and a Super Hero Squad DS game. I've been (mostly) good. Love, Kainoa
16: Happy Valentine's Day 2010 For valentine's this year, we booked a free 2-night stay at Hotel Corque in Solvang. Actually, when I booked for these days, I didn't realize it was Valentine's weekend, so it was a lucky coincidence. We spent the next day in Santa Barbara before returning home. It was a great V-day spent with the 2 guys that I love most! | So sweet...
18: LAS VEGAS March 2010 Thanks to Groupon, we planned our trip around King Putt and you loved it. Then we checked out the new hotel Aria and the City Center.
19: We went to Vegas in December with our friends: Lilia, Gery, Mara & Josh, and all the kiddies! It was fun seeing all the kids have a blast together. They even had fun rampaging the hotel room! The week after Christmas, however, is a crazy busy time in Vegas. We waited nearly 3 hours to eat at the buffet the first night and learned our lesson fast about when to eat. | Las Vegas Round 2, December 2010 | You lost your first tooth the day we came home from Vegas!
20: We hosted Easter this year because we finally have a big enough yard to do so. The usual gang came over and we had a lovely brunch. Then, the kids got to do their egg-hunt and enjoy their Easter baskets filled with lots of goodies. | Look at all the Easter basket goodies!
22: UCLA Book Festival 4/25/2010 | We finally went to the book festival this year because The Fresh Beat Band was playing there. Kai loved this group because of their show on Disney. The weather was great and we had a picnic there with our friends.
23: REX | Meet the new addition to our family--REX, otherwise known as Batdog because of his huge ears. Although no pup will ever replace Curly, Rex has stolen our hearts already. We brought him home in the middle of May to meet Mimi. ! | Rex Angus DOB 3-7-10
24: Look Who's Turning 6 | Kainoa's 6th Birthday Party August 21, 2010
25: A Super Hero party at Chuck E. Cheese for a SUPER-DUPER kid!
26: FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL: 1ST GRADE The first day of school was actually on your birthday, August 25, 2010. You got Mrs. Kissane, the teacher whom we requested. She's an awesome teacher, and a self-proclaimed chatter-box, just like you. Since it was your birthday, Mommy brought to-go cupcakes and goody bags (no eating sweets in class is school policy) for your class at the end of the day and everyone sang to you. It was a wonderful start to what seems to be a promising and exciting year.
27: A couple of activities that have happened in 1st grade so far were Scarecrow Day, Thanksgiving, and Holiday Party. I took the day off & came to help out and hang out with Kainoa. These are special memories that Kainoa will have of his early school years.
28: Knott's Berry Farm 12-5-10
