Facebook, I believe I am addicted!

Being the new web content editor for Fresno Pacific University comes with some interesting challenges. One of my colleagues suggested I create a Facebook and Myspace profile. I must admit it has been quite fun. It is a great way for me to see how youths are communicating, and to see new and upcoming ideas on the web. I, myself, prefer Facebook. I am able to stream my blog directly into Facebook. Way cool! It is tons of fun. If you are a friend of the Alvey blog and have a Facebook account, let me know...we'll be come 'friends.' Have fun surfing!

Pasghetti, Birthday Cake and Pixie Dust

Yesterday, Lizzie pulled out her other top front tooth in the school library. The whole class was excited! So the tooth fairy once again decorated Lizzie's pillow with pixie dust.

Yesterday was also Kevin's birthday. We had made plans for Lori and Paul to watch the kids while we went out to dinner. So Uncle Paul took advantage of the time to prepare his famous "suck-the-pasghetti-through-the-hole-in-your-teeth" dinner for Lizzie. See photos and video. All of the sauce landed on her chin, so as to look like a goatee. Yum!

Lori and the girls made Kevin a birthday cake while we were out. Tori decorated it with the candles. It was beautiful!

Happy birthday Kevin. You are a wonderful husband and father. We love you!

Lizzie and the Spelling Bee

Yesterday was the big spelling bee at Lizzie's school, Sierra View. There were 10 finalists (out of about 60) for the second grade and Lizzie was one of them. In fact, she made it all the way to second place! She and a friend, Wyatt battled it out - they had to use third grades words for them to spell. It was so amazing to see these second graders spelling so well! Lizzie was very disappointed that she didn't win, she vows to be more prepared next year! We are so proud of her!

(She got tripped up on the word listening...Lizzie's version: lisenting)

One of her words...feathers.

Kevin and I had a chance to go to our first U2 3D! In a word it was, well, one word does not suffice. Dave Klesch highly recommended the movie, and I had read some reviews that rated the 3D techie stuff as top notch. They weren't kidding...we felt that we were at the concert. It was amazing! Don't miss the opportunity to go. (Click on the title bar to see a trailer.)

Pixie Dust and the Tooth Fairy

We had another visit from the Tooth Fairy last night...Lizzie lost her third tooth! It's one of the big top teeth so she is very excited. The Tooth Fairy left Lizzie a little cash, another letter and pixie dust sprinkled all ove her pillow and check (I think she gave her a little kiss!) It was all very exciting to find this morning!

(p.s. I've accepted a position with Fresno Pacific University, I'll be the new Web Content Editor - also Josh now has six teeth!)
