O Come All Ye Faithful ~~~ Adeste Fideles ~~~ Bing Crosby

when i was a kid, i went to a catholic school run by nuns.

by the time i was in school, mass was no longer done in latin regularly. but those dear sweet sisters wanted us to sing in latin.


us kids didnt know what we were singing, but we said the words to avoid getting hit. we were in survival mode.

some of it actually sunk in, because a few years back i heard the song 'oh come all ye faithful' being sung in latin on the radio and I SANG ALONG!

my kids thought i was weird singing all this jibberish.

but they think im weird anyhow.

im sharing this version of 'adeste fideled' by good old bing crosby. and if you want to sing along, here are the words!

Adeste fideles læti triumphantes,
Venite, venite in Bethlehem.
Natum videte Regem angelorum.
Venite adoremus (ter)
En grege relicto humiles ad cunas,
Vocati pastores approperant,
Et nos ovanti gradu festinemus.
Venite adoremus (ter)
Æterni Parentis splendorem æternum,
Velatum sub carne videbimus,
Deum infantem pannis involutum.
Venite adoremus (ter)
Pro nobis egenum et fœno cubantem
Piis foveamus amplexibus ;
Sic nos amantem quis non redamaret ?
Venite adoremus (ter)

day six...

we took the boys back to huntington beach in the daytime.
parker loves the ocean! nate likes it but wont marry it.
a life guard house with 'nate' written on it!
my feet in the sand. i didn't get wet at all.
my boys resting after being in the water.
i told nate about 'shrinkage'. he had to check it out for himself.
parker and dad in the cold cold water!

***strep update-i slept from saturday 8pm until sunday 11.30am. i was that sick. there aren't any photos of the way home but it went something like this...
i fell asleep as soon as we were on i-15 in california. woke up in vegas to pee. slept until the middle of utah.***

day 5...taking it easy...

with me finally on an antibiotic, we took today easy. the boys tried to swim in the pool (as chris got to judge their dives.)and i slept.
when we left the hotel, we headed to huntington beach.
the kids loved watching the surfers.
mostly because the surfers weren't very good and kept falling.
the boys had their very first gelato.
they weren't impressed.
this we found HYSTERICAL!
this cute girl was stuck trying to get people to come into some mexican restaurant dressed like a taco!
it reminded us of a snl sketch with justin timberlake. i would post it here but i cant find it.

***strep update-still sick. made the kids sleep on the pull out bed (our room had 2 queens and a pull out) so i could have a bed to myself. best. decision. ever.

day 4 part 2...

back at the lego store...
nate and woody.
this is one big giraffe.
a build your own bucket of legos.
(summer would love to live here!)
nate getting chased by a lego snake.
these are at a chocolate store. these apples look too good to eat! so i just took a photo.
me and belle! twins!
they will stick ears on ANYTHING just to get moms to buy them!
going into disneyland for trick or treat night. isnt this minnie the cutest?!
more decorations.
action shot of the tea cups.
it is so nice that they can go on some rides themselves!
***strep update: had a call into the good dr peterson in utah for some drugs. i was only on ibuprofen today.***
