Elizabeth's 8th Birthday

Elizabeth had a great birthday, which was on January 18th. I took Lizzy and her friend Rebecca to the movies to see the Chipmunks movie and then to McDonalds for lunch. Unfortunately I forgot the camera and didn't get any pictures of the girls together. All and all...they had a great time. After taking Rebecca home, Lizzy and I rushed home so I could work on a cake that her daddy had started. We ordered pizza, which is Lizzy's favorite, enjoyed that while I tried to decorate her cake, which was giving me a hard time since it was 4 layers and had chocolate pudding between each layer. Our neighbors the Willyerd's came over to have cake and ice cream with us to celebrate Lizzy's birthday and the cake was unsure of how long it wanted to stay standing. We sang and served up the cake and ice cream and enjoyed visiting with the Willyerd family. While we were visiting the half of the cake that was left...well the top half anyway...decided it didn't want to be on top anymore and fell right off. Everyone got a good laugh. Luckily we had already had a piece. Those are the memories that make a birthday so much fun to remember.
Lizzy is wonderful, and we're so lucky to have her in our family! She is very bright, and has many talents that we hope to help her develope. She is usually very happy, and is very loving. I can't believe she is already 8.
The one thing Lizzy is most excited about is going to Activity Days for the first time this week. We are also trying to get her baptism all planned out. Mommy is lagging on that! Will post pics. when we have it.

I'm back! At least....I think I am.

I can't believe how long it's been since I last blogged! WOW!!!! I forgot my password...that's sayin' something. I plan on getting back in gear, and letting everyone know what's been going on in our lives! It's been fun looking back at what I put on here so far. I've never been very good at keeping a we'll see if I can stick with this for more than a month! :) I will begin posting pictures and other fun stuff on a more regular basis hopefully starting this week. Life has been busy, and will continue to I'm sure.
Tonight is the first night of American Idol, so I'm off to watch that with my hubby, and make sure kids are all tucked in to bed.

Devin advances

Last week on 10-1-08, Devin advanced to life. He is now working his way towards getting his eagle. We are so proud of all he does. It take a lot of work!

He's getting ready to put my pin on me.

Not a great picture. The photographer wasn't familiar with my camera. It's the only picture I have of us together that night. You get the point.
He's taller than me still and I'm wearing my heels.

My addiction

I know I havn't been keeping up on my blogging. Sorry! I've found something that I've become addicted to. Facebook. I can't seem to pull myself away from it. My computer is constantly calling me. I've had fun reconnecting with old friends, and keeping up with the new. Like I needed another distraction in my life! :D

Our family is doing well. We are in full swing with school, and all that comes with it. Bruce started back to school last week. He has 1 year left until he gets his B.A., that is, if all goes well. He seems to be enjoying his classes so far. His brain is in overload with all that he is trying to juggle. Work, school, scout master, dad, husband, and football coach. He's a great man! That's why I married him. Luckily we have our morning rides together, otherwise I'd never see him.
I took some pictures while on one of our morning rides, to share some of the beauty I get to enjoy. Hope all enjoy them as much as I do. The pics. aren't the best quality, but they get the point across.

Bruce's birthday!

Yesterday, September 22, was my sweet husbands birthday. I won't post his age, in fear he'll put bugs in my food or something! :} Of course being a Monday, he had to go to work, but he did come home and we were able to have lunch together. Nothing super exciting! I did make him his favorite dinner. Chicken enchiladas, and we had his favorite dessert, banana cream pie. Yummy! Thier were a couple kinks in his day that sucked, but all in all I think he had a good day. He's the best!! Happy birthday sweetie.

September 22 is also the Autumnal Equinox. My father in law called my and told me to try and stand an egg on its end. Normally you can't do this, but because the sun is directly over the equator, you can actually make an egg stand on its end. I took some pictures to prove it.

Pretty cool ha?!! One of my eggs are still standing. I'm waiting to find out how long this equinox lasts.

First game of the season

In case you're wondering where Devin is, he is #36. This was his first real game. He didn't have his best game though. He was dealing with an injury that happened earlier in the week at practice. His injury was worse after a hit he recieved in the 3rd quarter. He was in so much pain, but wanted so badly to be out on the field helping his team.

His team, the Eagles was doing pretty good, considering all the penalties they got, until the 2nd half of the 3rd quarter. The teams were tied 6-6, and then all of the sudden, they started getting killed. The final score was 23-6. Ouch! Devin plays on the offense in a couple different positions, and on the defense, and the kick off team, and the punt return team. The boy doesn't get much of a break. He loves to play. I'm kinda hoping he doesn't play this week, because they're going in to downtown Oakland on Friday, and I want him to live to see his 16th birthday next year. I'm not sure I want to go and watch.

Here they are getting ready for the kick off. Dev. is 3rd man in from the far side.

Devin is being seen by a sports Dr. so hopefully we'll get him back to normal in no time. He really enjoyed getting his back adjusted, and laying down with heat on his back, and the deep tissue massage he got on his neck and shoulders. He almost fell asleep. I should've gotten a picture of that.

Devin is on the other side of 34 trying to hold him back. Go Devin!

Devin got to come out for a little break finally. Few!! Hangin' with his buddies.
