The Karate Kid

Patrick has been asking to go to karate school. We thought...why not! Let him get trained to kick Daddy's butt.
Last night was his second class. The first week he was super shy and it took him about 15 minutes to get on the mat. This week, he got out there in 2 minutes. The first 2 classes are 1 on 1. He did a great job last night. He had to pass a test to earn his white belt. When the instructor was explaining the test to Patrick, I thought there was no way he was getting that belt. But to my surprise, Patrick did an awesome job! He had to sit on the mat and stare at the wall for about 5 minutes without moving. I was so rpoud, but was secretly wishing this instructor could come to our house everyday and get him to do that.
Patrick is now on a mission to earn all of the belts. God help us all!

There is so much to be thankful for, isn't there? We certainly feel blessed to have each other. Our families. Our friends. Our health.
I am thankful that I have a husband as wonderful as he is. I am thankful that my amazing children are growing up in a house full of love and happiness. (Not that it's always sunshine and roses in our house, but you know what I mean) I am thankful that I can come home from work everday to our home. I am thankful for everything we are able to have and provide to our children.
This year I am just so thankful. Not that I'm not thankful any other time....but I just feel extra thankful this year.
We wish all of our family and friends a happy and safe Thanksgiving. We are looking forward to having all of our family together tomorrow at my sister's house for some good food and lots of laughs.

I can't believe my little boy is 4 already! Although he already acts like a little man...and reminds me regularly that he IS a man now, and not a little boy.
He is so smart and funny. Harvard should be holding a spot for him already!
We had a great birthday weekend. Starting with his Spongebob birthday party on Saturday to our family photo session on Sunday followed by dinner at Arirang. Now on to planning Allyson's birthday party.....


Happy Halloween from our Nerd and our little Robot!

Anniversary Night Out

Ron and I spent the night at Ocean Place to celebrate our 5th anniversary at the place it all started. We had a great time. Had a great dinner at Sawa, walked around, listened to music, watched the fireworks, and just enjoyed some quiet time. We watched a wedding on the beach from our balcony (not as nice as ours was, of course). After telling the front desk woman that we were there for our anniversary, we came up to the room to find a bottle of champagne and strawberries and a card from the Ocean Place staff. It was a really nice surprise.
Definately made us want to pick a year to recreate the whole wedding again.

Ally's First Open

Ally had a great time with Peggy at the US Open on Sunday. Although it was extremely hot, they were able to get relief in the Chase lounge...
