Take me out to the Ball Game....



Our 2018 Regular Baseball season has wrapped up. I am sure that I say this every year but this year we had an exceptionally wonderful team with amazing supportive families. We were so lucky that our little was such a slugger she felt ready to move up and play with the big boys so she and Big A could play on the same team (The only time that would ever be a possibility). She rose to the occasion and showed those boys how to tough it out (she got hit by a pitch 7 times!!! I think the small strike zone freaked out the pitchers. Big A shone and built even more on the skills he gained last season. He was pitching  awesome and still "Automatic A" on 1st base. He didn't make it over the fence but he SLAMMED the ball into the fence SO many times! Big A will continue on this year on the All-Stars team and little a is looking to try out softball this fall. I'm just so thankful that they had this opportunity to play together like this. I'm so very sad it went by so quickly!

Summer OverLoad 2017


It happened again... spring came around and I got all the notices for Summer camps for the kiddos. Keep them interested in sports! Keep them learning! Keep them interested and excited! So I signed them up, and signed them up and Oh yea what's one more?!?!? Then Summer started and Big A made the All-Stars Baseball team and we had baseball EVERY DAY for an extra 6 weeks... (It was AMAZING don't get me wrong) but then in the middle of all that the camps started. The kids were on over load and I was feeling totally frazzled. We did Baseball Camp, Basketball camp, Science Camp, and Horseback Riding. We are in the middle of Advanced swimming and still have a Science one to go. The kids have DEFINITELY not been bored this summer but it's been anything but relaxing. Next spring when I start talking about summer camps... slap me!

Superbowl or Football Party Entry

We had a little shin-dig for the Superbowl. It was a blast with TONS of food, good friends and oh yea, some football watching too. I always try to be really festive when we have a party and I wanted to spruce up our entry way. So I grabbed my cricut, some wood from the garage and had some fun....
What do you think?

Snow Much Fun

 
 
 
 
January has hit Salt Lake City with a vengeance. We have gotten snow, snow and more snow. It has blanketed everything in beautiful, magical white. It also creates a crazy, chaos trying to get boots, hats, gloves, and coats together to get out the door in addition to the regular chaos. Ahhh winter.

Santa Baby 2016



We had yet another wonderful experience getting our Santa Pictures done. We used FotoFly Santa and they blew us away with the amazing pics they got. IT took 20 minutes and the pictures were So amazing for the price... miles above a "mall" Santa. Even though Big A realized this wasn't the "real" Santa he was fine getting his picture taken with a "Helper".

My Little Pilgrims

 


One more year of the pilgrims...whew! I was so worried that my big boy would not be up for dressing up for a photo shoot this year. I had actually kind of resigned myself to the idea that I wouldn't get one this year. I tried to bring it up tactfully..."Hey guys we are going to do pilgrim pictures this weekend!" Big A was all "Mooooommmm, That is SO dorky, I can't let anyone see me like that!" "We are going to Gardner Village when they are closed, there wont be ANYONE around." Really Mom? Really?" and he gives me the raised eyebrow that he is working a lot lately. Then he says the golden phrase "I'll do it for $5!" Little a chimes in "I want $5 too!"

I am not proud to admit it but I am NOT above bribing my children. $10 in the piggy banks and I have one more year of AMAZING pics of A and A in full on Pilgrim mode!
