Amelia had her second soccer game of her indoor season this afternoon. She played her heart out but sadly they lost 15-1. (Ouch) The best part of the entire game was.... ELI was on the other team;)
Eli is a really nice boy from Sissy's class at school and she has a little crush on him.... Junie and Macker couldn't help cheering for Eli, Sis was embarrassed, Scoot and I laughed and Sammer slept through the whole thing.


I'm not sure if you can tell, but Samtastic is smiling so big under that scarf. He'd been waiting all day for the big kids to get home from school.

Some of our nice neighbor friends joined us and as we headed to the hill.

June was perfecting his snowboarding skills.

The kids were attacked by Big Scott.

The kids got him back.
Sissy made a snow baby. (check out her crazy did in the background)
 Speaking of crazy.....

The Fort

The kids don't want to leave the house this morning. They are addicted to their fort.
The 3 bigs woke up and went straight to the fort.
The Pledge.


I wonder if you can picture how annoyed Sam is to be left out??
I also wanted to send a shout-out to my (pretend) friend Leanne. GET BETTER! Will you please join me in praying for her today? She's in the hospital fighting an infection. I'm sure she'd much rather be home with her little Leo.

More Cousin Fun

About 2 seconds before they left this morning I realized I hadn't taken a picture of all the kids together... this was as good as it gets.

Or this....

Sis played "church" with Mac and Haddie for hours... She was so serious.  I overheard her preaching about humility, Genesis 1:1 and making them each say the Lord's Prayer. Wow fun.
Even the American Girls were listening.
My Scoot got a new pair of tennies last week. When Brother-In-Law saw them he had to have them too.
Lucky for him, they had a pair left on clearance at Dick's. They promised each other not to wear them on the same day.


Sissy got her first goal ever!!!!! Scoot and I both cried a little. Her little body never stops moving, she's seriously amazing. (sorry for bragging)

We've been working really hard to help Sam stop screaming when he wants something.
He's not a big talker.
 Why does he need to talk, he has Sis, Juner, and Macker to do that for him.

Enough pictures, I need my bottle.


Who Wants to Come to Dinner?

Doesn't this look like a quiet, peaceful dinner?
When I said smile, Mac's elbow hit his plate and the chips when flying...
Just a normal dinner.

Sis had a  project called "Trash to Treasure" and I couldn't think of anything....

Scoot to the rescue. He always has the best ideas. These are the before pictures....

AFTER. You're looking at a Barbie Travel Fashion Closet.
Macker jumped in the picture at the last second.
This time Sis doesn't know he's in the picture and it makes me laugh.

I always knew my People Magazine subscription would come in handy some day.

Valentine's Day

These are my little Valentines before school.

Sam was still sleeping so he had his own picture. He will NOT smile for the camera.
Every year Scoot and I almost get each other the same card.  Do you see how simular they are?

I got to help in Juner's class.

My little darling.
I got to help in Sissy's class too.
My little sweetheart.

Today someone said Sissy and I look like twins.
