Soccer Stud

I know that soccer season has been over for awhile but I couldn't help but post a picture of this little cutie! I was going through a stack of pics earlier and come across this picture. It just makes me laugh because he is so snaggle toothed (and it is only getting worse!) I love this little man, he definitely keeps me on my toes.

One Strange Little Indian

Sam had a small little Thanksgiving program at his school today along with a feast! He was so excited because Mimi, Aunt Annie, Lily and Cooper were going to get to come to his school. The kiddos came walking into the room wearing their Indian hats and necklaces and Sam's looked a little bit different (see picture below). I guess he just wanted to have his own little style. That is my Sammy boy for ya!

This is Sam and his good buddy Caden. Notice Caden's feathers look a little more "Indianish" than Sam's!

I thought I would start documenting some of the things Sam says. It just amazes me the things that come out of his mouth (for a four year old). Anyway, since I am the mom I probably think that these are cuter than some of you do, but I wanted to start documenting them. I don't have a very good memory so I will just post them as I remember.


Sam walks through the entryway and the coat rack just falls completely over. (Yes, I am sure that it has to many coats hanging on it) He says "I didn't see that one coming" in his little manly voice, doesn't even look at the darn thing and goes and sits on the coach to watch Sponge Bob. I guess he really didn't care that he had a near death experience.

Chad drops Sam off at school everyday and Chad tells me this is the way it always goes.

Chad: "Have a great day at school at school Sam"

Sam: "No dad, you have a great day at work!"

Then he hops out of the car and goes on his merry way!

Great News!

I just figured out how to access my blog from work WOOHOO (you know school filters and all) so now I should be able to post more often! Don't tell anyone (and hopefully my boss won't read this :) and maybe you will be able to hear from me more often! Now I won't even be able to use my excuse of being to busy in the evenings. I hope you all get to hear from me again soon!

Sam's Party!

Since Sam goes to a private preschool he got to have a Halloween Party at school this year. It was so cute to see him in his element with all of his friends at school. It made me realize how old he is getting.Here he is with his buddies from church Kobe and Caden.They sang a Spooky song! Not really sure what it was about!Here Sam is being the best teachers helper!
And of course he was loaded up with a ton of goodies from the day! We have so much candy at our house it is insane!

We are leaving town tomorrow and will not be back until Sunday evening. Our entire family is going to Branson for some fun! Yes, there will be 18 of us total 9 adults and 8 children (all under the age of 6!) So I am sure that there will be several posts from the family dedicated to the trip! Hope everyone has a great rest of the week!

Halloween 2008

We had a blast this year on Halloween. Max decided to be Anakin Skywalker from Star Wars Clone Wars, Sam was Indiana Jones, and Ben was the cutest little lion you have ever seen! It does make me a little sad that the kiddos get old enough to chose their own costumes! I prefer to chose them, but hey, at least they didn't take a lot of effort this year!

This is Anakin ready to fight.

Indiana was always ready to pose for a picture!

Let's just say this lion was not as cooperative for pictures. He did love his mane though and got really mad at me if I tried to take it off of him. Everyone thought he was so cute (yes, my mother made the costume!)
Which would you bet on lightsaber or whip?
Luke got to enjoy Halloween with us this year and he was a cute little dragon, but don't tell him that! He says he is a dinosour!

Here is our best effort at a group shot!

More Halloween Fun!

I don't know why, but blogger cut me short on my other Halloween post. I wanted to post some pictures from KidFest at our church! We did a little trick or treating with the kiddos and then we headed to our church carnival, needless to say, we got there when it started and we stayed until it closed! We had so much fun. Here is Sam on the big slide I bet the kids did this about 50 times.
Max even helped Ben up once and gave him a shove down. Ben loved every minute of it!
As some of you know Ben is oppsessed with Basketball, so when he noticed a goal just his size this is what he wanted to do all evening.
I was trying to get a picture of Carter, the lion, and Ben together (jungle animals you know), but as you can see Ben was not cooperating so well!
There was a hay ride outside (Uncle Bert was the driver) and Aunt Sally took all of the kiddos for a spin.
I know this picture is horrible, but I feel like I haven't posted many of Max. Mostly because I can hardly stay up with him! This was at the carnival, it is a big swing that is hooked up to the seiling. They but the kids in this sling like thing and push them around (way high by the way) and of course my boys love every minute of it!
Needless to say that a great time was had by all, and thanks to my mom we are now the proud parents to three goldfish. Yes, my mother sets up a carnival booth and gives away fish to children who can thow a ping pong ball into a jar containing the fish. Mimi thought all three of the boys needed their own fish. Thanks a lot Mimi!
