Kris Allen Watch Party

Here are the pictures from the Kris Allen watch party. We had a lot of fun, the kids wanted to go so I had to go with them!!!

This is not the real Kris Allen but isn't he so dang cute!

This is one of my favorite pictures when Paige is holding her sign, she danced and sang all night with them! I'm really glad that we are able to see how everyone is coming together for one cause, will he win who knows but we are sure having fun watching!

Strawberry Picken!

So Friday we decided that we would do something adventurist with the little ones and we went strawberry picking. I have never done it before and we loved it!

I would have to say they should have weighed Paige coming in and going out. She had to of eaten 7 lbs of strawberries all herself... This picture you can see her little face and the juice dripping off of her chin. I love it!

She picked and picked and picked. At first she was picking everything but by the end she new only to get the RED ones!

This was our stash 7 lbs of strawberries, we made freezer jam, bread, cake and then had strawberries to munch on. It was a fun day, thanks for letting us tag along everyone...

Wolf to a Bear

Yes Braydin turned 9 and that intelled that he moved on to Bears. The night of pack meeting was so fun they learned about fossils. It is so much fun being able to see Braydin grow in cubs and also to see Regan getting excited to join.

One of the games that we played was racing in Dino feet. It was a difficult task and yes I did join the fun and NO you may not see the pictures that were taken!!!

For the treat of the night they had to dig for Dinosaur snacks in the pile of shredded paper, you would have thought that it had snowed there was paper everywhere. Sister Brock did such an amazing job.

The to top off the night I was able to pin Bradin's wolf badge to his shirt. I really love the scouting program and how it influences the boys to "Do your Best"

Happy Birthday Braydin

Braydin turned 9 years old today, and what a ride the last 9 years have been. He is such a good boy, and so much fun to have in our life! For his Birthday we told him that he could have a sleep over with a few of his friends. Man a house full of boys was not a quiet place! Boys go and they go and they go, and just when you think that they are ready for bed they go again! Then they fall asleep for a couple of hours and are going again and again 2 hours later!!!

We started out at the slick track and miniature golf... Most of the boys had never done anything like this before so it was alot of fun to see them fly!

Are family loves going together here so yes Kevin couldn't pass up the chance to show these small fries what he was made of!!!

Regan isn't tall enough for the slick track so he road the small track, and yes he still loved it.

After the track we went miniature golfing Paige got in on the fun for a minute!

Then it was back to the house for dinner and cake. The night may have been a little crazy but Braydin had a great Birthday and that is really all that we wanted, so needless to say that a mother can handle anything for a night as long as her baby boy had the Best Birthday ever!!!
So in closing all I want to say is Happy Birthday Braydin, and thanks for being ONE of my favorite boys!!!

Easter Sunday

We had such a great Easter, the kids where so excited about what they got from the Easter Bunny. Are morning started off at church at 8:30. Regan was devastated that the Easter Bunny didn't come before. He told us that this was the "WORST Easter ever!" But oh well we went off to church
All three kids got new outfits for church, they thought they looked pretty good!

Church was wonderful, Easter Sunday is one of my favorite days. The music and speakers were wonderful.
When we got home we had found that the Easter Bunny came while we were at church, he sent the kids on a "Treasure Hunt" They laughed and ran like you wouldn't believe, they had to go out side a few times and because of the rain they were sopping wet.

The last clue took them out to the car where they found a new bike for Paige and new baseball gloves and bats for the boys.

This is Paige on her new bike, she was starting to get it by the end but we will have alot of work to do...Hopefully when it stops raining that is!

The boys loved their new baseball gloves and bats, all in all it was alot of fun.
I thought I would share with you what Braydin's comments were at the end of the hunt...
Braydin: mom I think I know how dad did it, he went and bought everything the other day then came home during church and set it up.
Lindsee:so Braydin are you telling me that dad is the Easter Bunny?
Braydin: Well I am 50% sure its him and 50% sure its the Easter Bunny...
He is getting so big he just makes me laugh, but like I said before this was a great Easter. I hope that your Easter was as entertaining as ours and that your kids have been bouncing off every wall in your house like ours! But the sugar rush will wear off and the memories will last forever!

Go Ellen Smith!!!

Braydin played with the Boys and Girls club this year, he was on a really good team, and he learned so much. He was on a team with all the boys from his school it was a fun year.

As you can tell his team won the championship, it took a little longer then what we expected but we got it done in the end. Like I said this was a good group of kids for Braydin to learn from, and what makes me most excited is the great example Braydin is becoming for family!
