Soccer Practice

Today was the boys' first soccer practice. Both Carter and Britton looked so cute in their outfits. Britton was especially excited to be playing since he has seen Carter on a team. I could tell they had a good day. The park we went to didn't have a restroom so Chris had to drive Carter to the restroom and he got Mc D's and then 30 mins later Britton had to go and Chris took him to a pizza place to go and came back with a pizza.  This was all before noon! When I was questioning him about the two fast-food stops within 30 minutes, his answer was just that he was hungry. I think that's hilarious!

Just a Few Pictures

Carter is the best brother ever. This is how he eats his breakfast and Macie loves him because of it.

For some odd reason the boys had been wanting to sleep under there beds for a while and a few nights ago Chris let them. They loved it. Also, that is one of the Quilts I made this Christmas. I let the boys pick out fabric. Carter picked money, outer space, batman, peace signs, super man, spiders, skulls, balls and zoo animal fabric. Brittons quilt had flames, tootsie pops, Lighting McQueen, Popsicles,  peace signs, airplains, tony hawk, wisconsin, cars, skulls and scooby doo fabric. I made both of them rather large so that They can have them on there beds and I put minky dot fabric on the back. They  saw me make them but I told them that I had made them for poor boys and they belived me. I could tell they wanted them. I am glad they like them so much.

This is a cake I made for a friend.

 Britton and I went in to Costco to get something and when we went back out it looked like Macie was driving (She was on Chris's lap while they were parked). Britt got a big kick out of it.

 This is a picture of Macie the day she turned 6 months. She is the light of all of our lives!
She is in the 25th percentile for her head, 50th for height, and 25th for weight. She is nice and healthy. 

Bouncers don't work even if she is strapped in. She is a wiggly girl.

We went to Red Robbin on Wednesday Family night the boys got their face painted, free arcades, balloon animals and free chocolate Sundays. It was fun!

Thanksgiving 2010

We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving here in NM. We had it at our home and had both the Bredthauer and the Jones families over. We ate turkey with gravy, ham with Jeanine's famous ham sauce, mashed potatoes, green beans with bacon, carrots, brussels sprouts, rolls with honey butter, sausage stuffing, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, pumpkin cheesecake, peach pie, pumpkin cake and of course Martinelli's. I am getting full thinking about it! It is nice to have great friends to celebrate Thanksgiving with.

The best looking folding table ever.

The turkey's last protest.

Brooke had a cute craft where the kids stuck marshmallos in an apple to make a turkey. We watched How to Train Your Dragon and played 31.

I always buy a bunch of Martinelli's because my cousin Erin says every year she has "Martinelli stress" because she is worried about there not being enough. I don't want my guests to ever feel that way so we get tons!

Thanksgiving nap.

This is what we are thankful for:

Family, army and toys.

Carter, Macie, parents, Oreos, and my friends.

Husband, home, beliefs, kids, family, ice maker and for my husband's job.

Macie-  (didn't ask but I am assuming)
Milk, and brothers.

Chris- Stephanie, Carter, Britton, and Macie. Good friends, a good job, the gospel, Christ, Christmas music, my brothers and parents, and the comforts of modern living.
