“The Kite Runner” Is Great

Last night, Candace and I watched The Kite Runner. It was a best-selling book a few years ago, and the movie is equally as admirable. It is such a pure story of human tendencies, honor, and honesty. No big stars. No big explosions. Just a great story that made us cry and laugh.

Throw it in your Netflix queue or rent it on Apple TV. It’s incredibly moving.

Getting Ready For The Monkey Luau

Cole is having his first birthday party tomorrow. (Though his birthday isn’t until the tenth.)

Candace, in her usual party planning style, has a fun day planned for our family. The theme is a “Monkey Luau.” I’m sure we’ll have plenty of pictures and videos afterward. But in the mean time, we have been polishing up his luau dance skills. Cole will dance for 45 minutes straight as long as I keep drumming. And I love how he cocks his right elbow back and then let’s his left arm just groove.

Here’s a short video (click the image below):
