Fall Sports

Cierra. She played on the Cheif Jo 7th grade A team. Funny thing, her coach was my high school jv coach. She really had a good time and she's a good player.

Harley. I love this picture because it shows how high Harley jumped! She's the middle player in white. Even though she missed the block, I still love it! She played on the Freshman team for Richland High. She was tired every day when she came home but she had fun! Harley also had one of my coaches! She had my varsity coach. That's Richland for ya!
Carter spent many evenings sitting on the bleachers! The boys were very excited when they were FINALLY at the LAST game of volleyball season! They got tired of being dragged to the girls games.
Mason with some of his team. Mason is #10. Don't they look so cute!!? It was so much fun watching those boys play football. I think they were undefeated! They did awesome!!
I thought I might get a LITTLE sporting break but it looks like that will be a short break. Cierra is doing dance team with Cheif Jo. Mason wants to play city basketball and Harley will tryout for Club Volleyball. On to the next thing!

Football ends

Football has come to and end for Mason. He had so much fun! This was his first year playing and thanks to a couple of great coaches (thanks Brad and Ryan!!!) and some other parents helping out, Mason had a wonderful experience!!! He learned so much this year! At the end of the season party he recieved a small trophy and he's been carrying that thing around the house since he got it! I had to convince him that he didn't need to take it to church. I'll have to search my other cameras to see if I have more pictures.
I had to thow in this picture of Carter also. I just love it! Cracks me up every time I see it!

Finally on the boat!

We finally made it out to the river. The first time we went out it was quite a journey. We loaded up the cooler, the bag of towels and all the kids. Drive down to the marina and get the boat in the water. While I drive the truck and trailer up to park it, Alex stays in the boat with all the kids. When I get back to the boat Alex informs me that the boat won't start. He even had it running less than a week ago when he got it all ready for the season. He figured out the battery must be dead, drained from the stereo. So I walk back up and unhook the trailer, drive the truck head first down the ramp to the boat so we can jump start the boat. It doesn't work. The battery was just totally fried! So then I drive the truck back up, get the trailer and we load the boat back up and all the kids and go home. The kids were disappointed to say the least! I was pleasantly surprised my a few people down at the dock who offered their help to us. A week later, we buy a new battery, load everything and everyone up again and we actually get to go for a boat ride. That day the wind picked up little so there wasn't any tubing but we ate lunch on the boat and the kids had a great time! FINALLY!

At the Pool

Just another day at the pool. This time I remembered to bring my camera!

Shine to Bruise

Here he is a week later.

A Shiner!

We were at the pool last night, Harley was swinging a large squirt gun to get all the water out when Spencer walked right behind her and got nailed in the face. Harley felt bad but it wasn't her fault. I'm sure it will turn into a very nice bruise in the next couple days. Poory guy, he cried for a long time! It sounded like the water gun had just hit the ground! OUCH!!

The busy scrapper

Birthday Goodies

These are the Birthday goodie bags I made for Mason's class at school.

Mason finally got his wish of having a "friend party" for his Birthday. This is such a busy time of year for me that it's been hard to schedule one. This year I made it happen! Sadly, only 3 friends showed up but I think Mason had a great time anyway.

We played some Transformer games and I made very simple transformer cupcakes. One game that they enjoyed was locating the Allspark. We hid it in the backyard and they had to search for it, when they found it they got a turn to hide it.

Another game they all enjoyed was finding the gumball hidden in a plate of whip cream. It was pretty funny. Even after they found their gumball they wanted more whip cream on their plates.

It's great to be 8!

It's hard to believe that our oldest son is 8 years old!!
We let Mason choose where he wanted to go out to eat for his Birthday dinner and he chose Red Lobster. Check out that plate of food! Mason loves all things meat.
He was baptized on Sunday March 7th along with another girl from our ward. We had over 110 people show up for their baptism!!! We started out in the RS room and we were overflowing into the hallway so we moved to the chapel. A huge thank you goes out to the stake choir for giving up the chapel!
On Wednesday Mason went to his first Cub Scout activity. He was very excited!! His birthday was just intime to be able to attend his first Pinewood Derby coming up in a couple weeks. I then realized that I had 18 years of scouting ahead of me with two other boys to follow. Let the sewing on of patches begin!

Scrapping projects

I've been busy trying to catch up on my scrapbooking lately. The first weekend in February I took a trip to Portland for the Creating Keepsakes Convention (CKC). This was my 4th year going! It's so fun to have a weekend where scrapbooking is all I have to do. If you ever get a chance to go you really should, loads of fun!!! It helps that I have a great husband that lets me go. Not only does he let me go but he keeps all the kids at home! He's awesome, LOVE YOU ALEX!!

Anyway, these are some projects I've done lately. Some at CKC and some at home.
