November 2010
(Click on images to enlarge)

Things I did this month:
I have decided to become a singer when I grow up... even though the only "Area of Concern" on my report card was for lack of participation in music class (i.e., I refused to sing)!
I got Strep throat... twice
My first break dance battle Optimum B-Boy II
Hockey season (Santa Fe Youth Hockey Mites #94)
My first hockey game (vs Rio Rancho and Los Alamos)--SFYH Coyotes
My favorite song is Not Afraid by Eminem

Random Conversations:
Ari: You know what I like about Panda Express? They don't need to cook anything.  They just scoop it up and put it in a bowl and give it to you.
Mommy: And that is exactly why we don't go there!

Ari:  Mommy, is it Strep froat or Strep throat?

Ari (asking about his mommy and daddy's wedding):  Was Bubba still old back then?
Mommy:  Well, she was a lot younger than she is now
Ari:  Did she look the same?
Mommy:  Pretty much the same, except she had brown hair back then
Ari (snickering): She must have been funny looking... I can see a picture of her in my head with brown hair... she is much more beautiful now.
