Annika's 5th Birthday Celebration

We decided to celebrate Annika's birthday a little early since her actual birthday is just days before Christmas.

We started the day at Build-a-Bear, since she was given a gift certificate as a gift. She chose to dress and stuff a Lalaloopsy doll.

Then we went to dinner at a local mexican restaurant. She got to wear the hat and eat fried ice cream.

Then we went home to bust open what Cale made for her.

Cale made her a chocolate pinata filled with treats. It's basically a chocolate and white chocolate shell made in a silicone mold and then filled and "glued" together with more chocolate, but it was a lot of fun.

National TaeKwonDo Tournament

This past weekend Cale, Cohen, and Lakin participated in a TaeKwonDo tournament in Montgomery, AL.

The 3 of them all ended up in different groups- which was nice and made for less sibling rivalry. 

The tournament consisted of them doing their current [purple belt] form and sparring.

Lakin placed 4th in sparring and 2nd in forms. Cohen won 3rd in forms. And Cale won 1st in forms. There was a mix-up with the names and another kid was awarded his trophy, but he should get it soon.

 We decided to stay the whole weekend in Montgomery as a mini-vacation. Lots of swimming in the hotel pool and we ended with a trip to the Montgomery Zoo.
