I put together a little highlight video for Sam's football team I wanted to share:

Sam is #27

Joe helped coach again this year, and Sam loved every minute of it. They went undefeated, too!!!!

May 2011

It was a cold and rainy June, but I added some super hot water to the pool to make it more bearable for the little kids to hop in the kiddie pool. It was almost summer, and everyone was getting antsy for the weather to warm up -- it just needed a little help.

Chloe is always so great and lets Jake play with her and her friends every day. I am so grateful for that!!!!!! Jake just loves her!!!!!Geddy loved watching the kids jump in the pool. He was afraid to get in with them, though...........water is scary to him, I think!
Baby Sophie falls asleep in weird positions all the time!!! She got a little tired in her bumbo, and so she just put her head down and took a nap. I think I've done that a few times, myself!

Chloe did an amazing job at her dance recital! That's her on the floor in the front.
Grandma and Grandpa even brought her some flowers!!!!!

Jake was very proud of her!
Aunt Katie graduated from high school, too!

We love her so so so so so much - there isn't a nicer girl in the planet!
Chloe and Jake played t-ball together for their first year on the Red Sox. They were so dang awesome! When Chloe was going in for a point one time, she tried to slide in to make it BIG! The sweet little thing was a little early in her slide and got stalled only halfway between third and home! Instead of getting up and walking in to home plate, she continued to scoot herself the whole way in using her hands. I'm not going to focus on the fact that she was the last run and that the teams were changing sides, and the rest of the teams were all heading to the dug-out, I'm going to focus on the fact that she followed it through the whole way to home plate. When she finally got there and stood up - the whole crowd cheered like crazy for her!!!!! I've never been so proud and so mad that I didn't bring my camera that game!!!!!

Jake's buddy, Jack was on the team with him - it was a lot of fun for them even though this picture doesn't show it!

They are so cute together. People ask if they're twins all the time!


Naughty Mommy!

I have been such a bad mommy-blogger! Life keeps on happening, I keep on taking pictures of it all, but does the blog get updated? No! Not for months now! It's been a pretty wild summer and fall, but I want to get some of the events covered, so there's going to be a TON of updating over the next little while!

Here's a few of the girl's 6-month session. Lucy was the first to sit up on her own - even before 6 months old! Sophie was still a little tiny and scrawny, so she didn't sit up on her own until she was about 6 1/2 months old, but she was crawling within 2 weeks! I'm guessing that just sitting there wasn't enough for her - she has places to go! Lucy would just sit there and stare at all the places Sophie was going with total jealousy on her face. I'd put Sophie down on the floor to sit by her toys, and she'd immediately "frog-hop" over to where she'd rather go. It made Lucy a little frustrated with herself - we could see it all over the grouchy faces she'd pull watching her sister. It was pretty funny!

Whenever I put the girls next to eachother, they'd start examining eachother. Sometimes it would make them mad when an ear or an eye would get clawed at, but mostly they were just confused about what was happening!
Sophie - the sweetest little angel ever!!!!!

Lucy - she's such a funny and loud baby! She wakes up in the morning (or middle of the night) singing. Her singing is really more like bird whistling, but it's cute and it's loud and sometimes it scares me out of a deep sleep at 3 in the morning!
This is Sophie.
This is Lucy.

This is Princess Chloe - the best helper/big sister/daughter/friend EVER!
Oh, my...........life is wild around here, but it's so fun, too!


Spring 2011 - whew!!!

It's been so crazy around the house, that I've let my blog posts slide! So, I'm doing a little recap of what's been going on the last few months. There will be more catching up, but this is a start . . .
I always wonder and worry. Up here, in Morgan, it seems like winter gets longer and longer, but a few flowers finally did peek through right about the time "winter despair" was setting in.
Cole did a great job on his history fair project. the 4th grade always has a history fair, and he did it on the Rocky Mountain Elk. His amazing drawings really added to his display!

Jake is always wearing some sort of super-hero costume, and I had to grab a few pictures one day. Isn't it adorable to watch a 3-year-old get dressed on their own? I especially love it when arms and heads get stuck in the same holes! I guess it's kind of mean to just sit back and watch, but how else will he get the hand of it -- I'm not going to be helping him get dressed when he's a senior in high school!

Chloe is always right next to me all day long. I love how much she talks. I don't understand how her lips can move so much without every taking a break! It's so funny sometimes!

I am SO in love with seeing her dance! She's always making up her own dances at home!

Chloe's clogging team did an amazing job at Lagoon this year. I think they placed 8th out of the age division of 3 - 8 year-olds and out of hundreds of teams from all over the place! Good job girls - it was adorable!!!

I did preschool pictures again this year for Chloe's preschool. The picture day fell on "park day" so I got a few minutes to watch the kids eating their lunches on the bleachers. It was cute to see how all the kids interact with eachother. They're at such an innocent and sweet age. Chloe doesn't mind playing with the boys at all (and vice versa!) In fact, she has a "boyfriend" from this class. His name is Zac and he's really cute. Chloe confessed to me that she and Zac had kissed once in class, but that it was okay because Teacher Melanie didn't see them. GREAT. It's beginning already! I'm a little nervous about all of this - aren't boys supposed to have cooties?
