Happy Birthday Heath!!

This little guy is all kinds of happiness bundled into one small package.....he brings joy on so many levels, it feels inadaquet to put words to them. He may be in a small body, but his spirit feels so big.....When I watch him interact with my other children, I cant help but feel he has been around us more than his short two years, I know that he has been with us forever, and even though we had been apart for a while, he was still close by us. I cant help but feel as though there is more happiness with this baby, not because he is any different, but our experience with Heath is on more levels-watching my older children love him and he love them just adds to the experience....He makes car sounds, and gun-shooting sounds, he loves to play ball with dad and the boys, and when theyre not around he plays by himself (basball,soccer,football and esp golf- he has a melt down when I take the golf club back outside)....loves to sit by the shoe bucket and try on everyones shoes....he is just a little busy guy, trying to enjoy every moment along the way.

Some of the words he can say are: ball,sit,outside,go,shoes,no,dad,mommy,jacob!!

Mother Duaghter Campout

This year was the first year my girls and I went without my mom and all her love for camping (hehehe) In fact, it was on the 1 year anniversary since her was weird to be doing it without her, and even though we missed having her, we all had a good time....

*note the cute pillow cases I made for such activities...I am not a gifted person when it comes to sewing projects, so the fact that I have something to mention is impressive (to me)..

Jared's birthday observed

Misc Summer Fun

I am still in awe that my boys LOVE to watch,help and learn anything that has to do with automotive repairs... Heath loves anything with wheels, and so much wants to be able to ride a bike....but for now will settle for a ride with a big brother or sister.....

This summer was spent mostly inside, which makes for a long summer....

We enjoyed a turkey this summer and the kids wanted to try a leg.....

Scout Night with the Missions Baseball Team

Every year we go to scout night with the missions baseball team and it is such a fun family night.

We had to leave the game a little early, but on our way out a ball landed on the other side of this fence, with inn seconds Travis scaled this fence like spiderman and retrieved the ball, this is a picture of him in all his glory.....

A Mobile about Megan

One of the first projects Megan did in 5th grade was collect items or pictures which showed the class a little about her. She had so much fun gathering things to include, she probably could have filled up another hanger!!

Day at Six Flags

six flags has a reading program which gives the children a chance to earn a six flag ticket by reading a certain number of children are readers so it is a given that we go to six flags once a year- let me just say that it was an especially brutal visit, the temperatures were cooking, there were lots of people having experiencing heat exhaustion, yet here we are!!

Heath is a hat boy, he loves to put hats on and wear them for an extended period of time. He is wearing a hat Jacob one at one of the carnival games-shooting water at something.
