Yay For Paint!

I am so excited to redecorate my bedroom!  Mike has been so great about helping me redo it all even though he has SO much work that he really should be doing!  I can't wait to be done with the yellow!

Sports Fun!

Some times I wish that we could just be lazy and sit around during the winter.....Not my boys!  This year Ty, Matt, and Isaac are all playing In Door soccer and Tyler is playing basketball. Isaac played with 2 different In Door teams....the first session he played with Corssfire.  The second session he played with the Outlaws.  He's LOVING it.  It's such a fun new thing for him:) Ty and Matt love it of's soccer!  Here are afew pic's from both Isaac's soccer and basketball!

Drive-In Fun!

Every year at the school they have a "drive in" movie for the kids that meet their reading goals.  I have taken to making one car for all of the boys to's a lot less work!  Last spring when we got our new tramp we saved the box so that we could make a school bus:)

Down and Derby!

I LOVE the Pinewood Derby.  I LOVE all of the excitement that goes along with it.....and I LOVE that it's all something Mike gets to do! hehehe

This year we decided to do "Cars" cars.  I bought enough kits that all 5 boys could make cars.  Ty decided to NOT follow the rest.  He wanted a Corvette.  A red Corvette:)  Matt made Professor Z, Isaac made Fin McMissile, Lucas made Francesco, and Nick made Lightning McQueen.  They all looked AWESOME and they all did such a great job!  Isaac won the "Most Elaborate" Award and Matt won the "Judges Favorite" Award.  They came in 4th and 5th on speed which we decided was ok because you couldn't have the coolest looking and the fastest cars!

Tonight Matt also got his 20 WeBelos activity pin.  Because he earned all 20 he got his super achiever patch!  It's no shock that he's a super achiever but WAY TO GO MATT!

Mmmm Tasty!

 I love going to Mrs. Cavanaughs chocolate factory on a preschool field trip! I think it's so fun to see how it all works and to watch the women hand dip chocolates!  No wonder they are so pricy!  I also love the discount bags of chocolates....I liked them a little to much actually!  Mmmmmmm!

Natural History At It's Finest!

 The other day my wonderful Sister in Law called to see if we wanted to go with them to the new Natural History Museum....the timing was a little tricky but the tickets were free and I was dying to see the new museum so of course I said yes!  I checked the kids out of school early and we headed to Salt Lake!  The museum was BEAUTIFUL.  I was amazed.  The U did a great job on this one!  And that's just the lobby! LOL....The exhibits didn't disappoint either.  My kids were all in heaven.  There's nothing better for a Staten boy than a museum!  We totally didn't have enough time......we could have spent several days exploring I think.  But the museum closed and we were forced out:) the upside though was a yummy dinner at Paul and Clerie's house.  Thanks Clerie for thinking of us!!
