Soccer Stars!

We've been running all over the valley for soccer this season with both boys playing. It hasn't been too bad with soccer stuff only three or four night a week, but I have no idea how people with three or four or five kids in soccer do it! Ty finally got the hang of it about half way through the season. He almost scored a few goals and loved playing goalie the most (probably because he didn't have to run as much). His team was called the Red Lasers!
C was on the Blue Jets (which was the Blue Dogs previously, until half way through the season). He scored his first goal and really likes soccer, though we think we might be better suited for football. He spent most of the games making "plans" with his teammates about how they would push down the other team and take the ball!
They both had so much fun! Can't wait until spring season starts!

A Hunting We Will Go....

Well, not we.... We stayed home and watched Conference and hung with Grandma, Grandpa, J, and the Hursts all weekend. T went hunting with my cousins. They were frozen and muddy all weekend, but came back with two four by fours. Pretty good! Congrats to Tom and Chris who actually got to shoot the poor elk. T is bummed he didn't get a chance to kill Bambi's very large cousin, but hey, at least they got two for the group. Pretty good. And they had fun. Like I always say, "Nothing says home sweet home like a dead animal carcass on the wall."

Everyone has seen that picture with the monkeys doing hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil, right? This is what my kids learned during General Conference! During the Sunday Morning session their was a big thunderstorm (we were hanging out at the grandparent's home in Bountiful) and the power went out for about an hour; no satellite, no Internet, no Conference. So in between down pours, Aunt J took the kids outside for some fast pics. We got some cute shots, but this was the funniest. They were copying each other and playing peek-a-boo and this was the only shot she got where they were each doing something different. I think it's hilarious!

Diva Tantrum

Tonight K was hanging out with Dad while he was vacuuming out his truck and after a while she started getting into trouble, so T sent her inside. I was in the kitchen doing homework with the boys. She came in SCREAMING! She was furious that T made her come in. I'm surprised she didn't immediately come over to the table cry to me. Instead she flopped down in the entryway on the stairs and shrieked. Then she ran into the great room, flopped down onto the floor and shrieked some more. Then back to the stairs for more screaming. Ty and I were giving each other practice spelling tests, so I was only watching her out of the corner of my eye. I think she was frustrated that she was making all this fuss and no one was really paying attention. Finally, she literally head dives back into the carpet in the great room, grabs her quilt off the floor, and.....silence. Nothing. I got up from the table to check on her. Had she hit her head on the floor or choked on something? Nope. She was asleep. Completely passed out and snoring slightly. She's such a delicate little thing.
