YouTube Favorites

I have just recently discovered the wonders of youtube and all the fun things that can be found there. By chance I happened upon this video of Charice Pempengco. She is from the Phillipines, and apparently is quite the sensation over there but I don't think it will be long before we start hearing about her here. She's only 14 or 15 and I think she's better than anyone on American Idol. Nathan didn't think it was actually her singing, but recently Ellen found out about her and had her on the show so I think she must be for real. Here is the clip:

Another funny video that my sister showed me. This is just so cute.

Deep Thoughts with Kaleigh...
I have to take a break from Christmas to share some of the funny things Kaleigh has said and done lately. Here goes...

K is excited about graduating to her "big girl panties" as we call them. She's also excited for other people, like the other day when she saw Nathan getting dressed for work and said "Look, Daddy gots big girl panties too!"

The other morning she came to lay down in bed beside me for a few minutes, snuggled up close to me, looked over and said "I'm just hanging out".

Coming home from church the other night:
K: Where are we going mommy?
Me (after having told her at least 3 times that we were going home): Where do you think we're going?
K: A party?
Me: O really? What kind of party?
K: A pink party.
(Funny b/c everything now is described as either pink or big)

Kaleigh saw a picture of a wedding on someone else's blog:
K: Look mommy, married! Gettin married!

Me: yeah

K: Sing a married song?

Me: What's a married song?

K: Joy to the World

And, another slightly embarrassing encounter that happened today. We were in Wal-Mart and looking at the vitamins. There was another lady standing there but I wasn't paying much attention to her until we walked past and noticed Kaleigh staring. Then I glanced over and saw that she had a patch on her eye. I was thinking to myself that I should probably hurry before K's staring turned into something else but I wasn't quick enough. In a not quiet voice she says "Look mommy, she got a pirate. Look mommy she got a pirate" and continues saying this over and over again while I'm running off as fast as possible and trying to discreetly cover K's mouth at the same time...

Kaleigh's Big Bump

I have to take a little break from Christmas stuff to put these pictures of Kaleigh up. The other night we came home from a friend's house and Kaleigh was running through the living room and fell straight into a chair that has a piece of wood running along the bottom of it. She hit it just right and got a nice little goose egg. She cried pretty hard for a minute but then was brave and calmed down. We held ice on it for as long as we could. Here are some pics.

These first two are from right after it happened.

This is from a day and a half later

This was two days after it happened. Starting to turn green.

This was from today. You can't really see the bruise but I liked how she was dressed up in her chef attire.

Some Christmas Highlights

I know, it's been way too long since my last post. I was just a little overwhelmed about Christmas and everything we did, but I will do it in stages. Here is a slideshow from Christmas Eve, starting at my parents house and ending back at our house. Kaleigh started out tentative with opening presents but by the end of the night, she was an old pro. She just starting ripping open anything and everything she could get her hands on, and then went digging under the tree for more. She likes her Dora bike that Santa brought her, but next time she gets something like that, Santa really needs to assemble it beforehand! She was a little impatient about getting to ride on it. I got some nice things, including a straightener from my sister and lots of clothes from Nathan that he picked out. Also some Dvd sets and a book of cake ideas.
