Boys Night....

Tonight I went to the Relief Society General Broadcast.  While I was sitting there waiting for it to start I got a text from Mike with 3 pictures...Sobbing boys.  Lucas and Nick got stung by wasps at a soccer game.  Oh its always something!  Then a little while later I got a text with camp fire pictures.  Mike said that he had to come up with some way to cheer them up:)

So all in all I think they had a fun boys night:)

Scout Camping!

 This is Matt's latest scout camp and Ty's last one as a Scout! I'm kinda sad that Ty's no longer going to be a scout.....I need the growing up to slow down!  Any how, they went and camped outside of Brian Booth's parents cabin.  It looks beautiful and the boys had a blast!  I'm thankful that I have a husband that puts so much of himself into scouting and for boys that love being there with him and with each other!

Put Your Hands Up!

 Today we had our preschool visit with a Riverdale Police Woman.  I love our Riverdale cops.  They are so kind and accommodating. Mary's group came and joined us too.  It was so much fun to watch the kids.  They were hanging on her EVERY word!  She was great and hopefully our kids came away knowing that they can trust our police force!

Happy Birthday Isaac!!!

I can't believe it but ISAAC IS 9!!!  Where in the world have the last 9 years gone?  WOW!  Isaac has always been an amazing child.  He's sweet and smart and thoughtful.  He never wants to say anything the point that even if something tastes really bad he hums and haws and finally comes out with something like "Well, um, there are parts of dinner that I really like....some probably aren't my favorite....but you did such a great job getting it done on time!"  LOL funny kiddo.  I just ADORE him.

Anyway, this year we have a fun dinner, cake and presents (with the Malan's) on his birthday.  The Avengers was probably the biggest hit of the night! (but of course he would want to say that he really loved each and every gift he received:) cutie)   Then we also took some friends and went bowling.  It was simple and fun and I didn't have any clean up!  Happy Birthday to my sweet and amazing Isaac!!

Rolling in the MUD

The other day Emily called me to see if I was interested in taking a spot on her Dirty Dash team.....I was but I was terrified!  I don't run.....but she assured me that she wasn't planning to run the whole thing and that I'd be I said yes!  It was the 10K distance and I was terrified but OH SO EXCITED!  Mike and the boys decided to come up and support us and I'm so glad they did!  It's not often that as a mom of boys I hear "Mom that was SO cool! You rock!" They thought watching their mom roll in the mud was cool....their mom thought it was cool too!

I was a disaster when it was over....I had mud in places that shouldn't ever have mud.....but thankfully I had brought wash clothes full of soap and a jug full of hot water, so after I washed off in the freezing cold showers I was able to finish rinsing at the car. Then I changed and we hurried back home for soccer games!

I can't wait to do this again next year!  I hope Mike and the boys will do it with me too!!

15 Amazing Years!

I can't really believe it but Mike and I have been married for 15 years!  It feels like its just been a few years....until I look back at pictures and then I realize how much older we are now!

Life is so nutty right we didn't have time for much BUT we did go to lunch together!  I love my sweet, kind, thoughtful husband.  I am so thankful that I found him!

Soccer Star Lucas!

 My sweet Lucas more than holds his own on the soccer field.  You can totally tell that he's got older brothers that he plays with.....nothing slows him down on the field!  In one game he scored 9 goals.....3 hat tricks for him LOL !!!  I love watching him play!

Party Time!!

I hate that my sd card ate all of my cute pictures from Nick's birthday party!  UGH!  But I guess it is what it is.  Fall is such a busy time for me.....and I was so stressed about Nick's party not being "good enough" but I could only do as much as I could do and believe it or not.....he loved it!  We played the normal little kid games and then they all got to decorate their own cupcakes!  It was messy and fun and PERFECT for little boys!  Nick absolutely loved being the center of attention at this party and even though we don't have pictures its not one that I'll ever forget because I learned that I need to chill a little bit and just roll with it:)

Happy Birthday Nick!!

Its hard to believe but my sweet Nicholas is 4 years old!!  What in the world is happening to time?!?  It's flying! 

Nick has a personality like no other.  He's funny and sweet and oh so stubborn!  He knows how to hold his own (with 5 big brothers how could he not?)  but he loves nothing more than being with his brothers.  Every day from the minute the boys leave it's "when will my brothers be home?"  His favorite color is red and he loves oatmeal:) Oh how I love my 4 year old!

Today we had a great day.  After preschool I took Nick to "Nickdonalds" for lunch and then tonight we had a little family dinner (with Ovesons and Grandma and Grandpa Wittke) before we went to the Brigham City Temple open house.  Nick was so excited to go to the temple for his birthday!  The temple was gorgeous and the kids were all so good!

It's been a perfectly wonderful birthday!

Sadly my sd card freaked out (can electronics freak out?) And I have NO pictures!  UGH

Happy Birthday Mike!

I have the world's best husband.  I love when I get a chance to focus on him and his birthday is one of those days.  We had a fun day and a yummy dinner but Mike was SUPER happy when he got new super nice Mtn bike tires:)  He's so easy to shop for!  Happy 37th birthday honey!

MAJOR Owies!

 Today I drove to church while the boys walked because I needed to take a few things and, well lets be honest, I was feeling lazy.  So I parked and was waiting by the car for the kids and Mike to get there when all of a sudden I heard a horrible scream.  I knew it was Nick.  It was.  Mike and Matt were swinging him and his hand slipped out, he flipped up and around and landed on his head.  Blood everywhere but nothing that could be stitched.  We grabbed the first aid kit and ran into the church to clean him up.  He was hysterical but wouldn't leave because he knew he was going to get his birthday present in primary!  Steve Buck ran home to grab kids pain medicine and he grabbed us cold paper towels.  He was so kind and helpful.  Nick was just a mess.  His ear was hamburger and his head was just a mess.  Sigh.....boys!

Back to Preschool!

 I love the first day of preschool!  Some of the kids are worried, some are excited, and Nick is thrilled because its at his house!  This is Nick's second year and he knows what he needs to do and how he needs to do it and I'm so excited to see how much he grows this year! A funny little side note....this year we only have boys:) 8 cute little boys!

Labor Day Biking:)

 Today we decided to spend our morning riding with the kids on the Legacy Parkway trail.  We ended up riding 10 miles....which given some of the little legs that we have was HUGE!  There's no better way to spend a holiday!
