Everday Life

I can not believe we fall is flying by so quickly! I must say, I am a little bummed. I want the leaves to hold on to the trees a little longer, and the beautiful fall weather to linger. Well, truthfully, I just don't want to have to gear up for the holiday season. It is coming tooooo fast.

The following pics are a pretty good glimpse of what goes on around here. Everything from playdates with friends to chores and sports.

This little family cracks me up and I am grateful to be a part of it!!

Emily and her friend, sharpening their light saber skills, in order to defeat the Clone Trooper.

The girls successfully defeated the Clone Trooper......

Apparently, Andy convinced Emily that if you have Mom and Dad's rockin' early 90's helmets on, the foul smell of dog pootie is not so bad. Lock and Load Sis!!

Reward for foul chores........Football with Daddy. This is an everyday occurrence in our house. We are always talkin' and playin' football around here.

The picture of Andy tackling Emily, is not real clear, but notice Emily is smiling. She LOVES to play football with the boys. We need to work on holding on to the ball. Fumbling is not real convenient.

Braden trying to keep warm before a race......Yes, that is a Sponge Bob blanky.

Coming down the home stretch.......
I am so proud of him!!!

Andy and Emily went to the pumpkin patch last week with their classes. What a blast. Both kids walked away satisfied, pumpkins in tow.
Go Wild Lions!! Her team, (and Andy's) went undefeated!!

How we feel at the end of the day!


  1. Love it. You and classic. What a blessed life. Go Braden!

  2. You have the cutest family! Love how much fun you have together. :)


Of course Braden did not stand still for me long enough to get pics of him on the first day of school, but I do have a picture of him at his cross country camp in McCall the first week of school. I would get pics of all three of these young men every year on the first day of school. I love that they are all such great friends.

Kyle, Oliver and Braden
