Nephi's coming HOME

Nephi (my brother) is coming home TOMORROW. I am so excited. He is one of the best people I have ever known. He was a stellar athlete but never let himself get big headed. He has always CTR'd. He is valiant in doing the Lords work. He is one of my best friends. He is a great example to everyone around him. He has definitely lived up to his BIG name! I just want everyone to know how PROUD I am of him and his willingness to serve the Lord. He is a GREAT person!!! I love my brother :) Can't wait to see him!

Madisons FIRST soccer game

Madison had her FIRST soccer game on Saturday. Her team is called the sharks! It was really fun and Madison LOVED it. She did really good too. She has a timid personality so she's not quite sure whether she should 'steal' the ball from people. But, towards the end of the game she was doing much better!!!

We are also horrible parents who are not use to being prepared at the games. We brought some water but there were no drinking fountains and the water ran out rather QUICKLY. Then I forgot to put her hair up in a pony tail but luckily we had a rubber band in the car. Then we forgot her own soccer ball! Luckily they don't need to bring their own. It was quite the experience and we realized that we completely forgot how to be PREPARED for sporting events ;)

Madison in her soccer uniform. We didn't have time to go buy shorts so we had to just use what we had. Next time we will be much more prepared! (I hate taking the time to flip the pics)

Madison's team cheering at the end of the game. Our team won (even though they don't keep score)!

LeVander Birthday Party

Last Saturday we went to Brayden (3) and Ryland's (1) birthday party. We had a GREAT time. They had cotton candy, a water slide, EXCELLENT food, dogs, drinks, and most of all FAMILY. We were there for 7 hours and the kids played in the water slide for the entire time! They had a complete blast. THANKS LeVander's for inviting us.

Gavin absolutely loves NICE dogs.

Gavin had a very difficult time remembering that this was NOT his party and these were NOT his toys. THANKS Brayden for sharing ;)

Madison and Gavin LOVE cotton candy. HOW FUN!

Madison in her super duper cute swimming suit. I love pink and brown.

THANKS again LeVander's for having us!
