I love soccer I really do, I just hate going and dealing with the rest of my kids during the games. It's not very enjoyable for me, but since I really want them to play, here we go again. The kids have 1 more game this week and then we are done (till the spring). They've been doing great, making at least 1 goal (usually more) per game. Micah's color's stayed the same and now we will never lose Morgan. It's very bright.

Here we go again. Not only is it Rad Kid year for Kenz. But also Morgan and Micah. So be prepared. There will be more coming. Mac's just the lucky one who goes 1st.
Here is her simulation with the lobster man. I don't know why, but these things always make me emotional. Maybe it's because this could really happen to my child and it scares me. I pray that it never does, but if it does, I know they'll know what to do.
Oh and this is proof that she actually yells.
It's been so crazy around here that it took me 3 1/2 weeks to finally let Morgan have her birthday party. We decided long ago to let our kids have bday party every other year on the even years since those are usually the big birthday's. It worked for McKenzie, I had no problems getting hers together, but Morgan's birthday was kind of part of the "Perfect Storm" as we like to call it around here. Her baptism was right after her birthday, we had family in town, we were still getting used to going back to school, I had some issues I'm not going to go into right now, Malia had her first birthday party, soccer was well underway and it just felt like the world was going to crash down on us at any moment. Anyway, so we gave Morg some options on what she could do and she opted for a "Movie" party, which btw I absolutely love and think I'm going to encourage the rest of the kids to do the same, at least once. The kids came at 5, and I quickly gave them pizza, drink and some healthy junk and they sat in the blanket and pillow covered living room and ate, drank and watched "Rio."
The gang after it was all said and done.
I loved this party because I had little to plan and do. I didn't have to entertain them with games or crafts because the movie took up 3/4 of it. All we had time to do when it was over was cake and presents. There were no dishes, clean up was a snap and Morgan loved every minute of it. Sorry Morg for being such a slack mom, I'm glad you had fun.

This was a special year for Morgan. She not only went into 3rd grade, and had a birthday shortly after, but she turned 8!!!! Which means she was able to get baptized into the LDS church. On her birthday, her teacher had her give her family presentation and got to wear the birthday hat and get sung to. That night Randy had school so we really didn't do a whole lot until the weekend when a ton of family came in for her birthday (which also happened to be my birthday, which subsequently is the same day as my baptism, crazy hu?)
But really this day was about Miss Morgie poo. She is a special part of our family. We are so proud of her for making the decision to be baptized. We love you little girly.
Before I get into Morgan's baptism I wanted to post a few pics from our photo shoot. We went out one afternoon to BYU and the temple and just clicked away. She was a good subject. I'm still learning about my awesome camera and I probably should have waited a few more hours to do this shoot. You live and you learn. This is the invite that sent out.
I took almost 200 shots, it was pretty fun.
Craziness is all around, on the house tops on the ground. (Can you name that primary song?) Anyway, school started with a bang. Three kids off to all-day school and one at home waiting to get evaluated for preschool which started the following week. Mak started 5th grade

Don't worry I'm only 1 month and 3 days late. Man, I'm awful these days. Malia did turn 4 last month and we did celebrate her birthday, I promise. We woke up on her bday and I made "the pancakes"
