This year was the last year of pitching machine baseball. And what a great year we had. Jackson had a great little team that pretty much dominated the league. It was so fun for him to play with so many of his friends. And I think BJ had just as... Continue reading

A couple of months ago, Audri had asked for help brushing her teeth because she had a strawberry seed stuck in her teeth. At that time I noticed she had an adult tooth budding her gums right behind her front bottom tooth. I really wasn't ready for it. Could she... Continue reading

The day after school got out, Audri had her dance recital. I always wonder why on earth they schedule the recital the day after school gets out because it makes that week a madhouse, but in the end when I see her doing her thing up on stage, it makes... Continue reading

This year, the kids had different "last days". Usually Deanne does an end of the year picnic on the last day of school but this year, Gary had surgery that week so she was closed. So Audri's last day of preschool was the Friday before the last week of school.... Continue reading

The end of the school year always creeps up on me and I find myself just trying to keep my head above water. It's always a battle to keep up at work and attend all the end of the year activities. And to top it off, this year I got... Continue reading

So proud of this kid. He brought home the Character Trait of the month for the month of May. And the Character Trait was perseverance and that is what makes me so proud. This kid tries so hard at school and it brought me to tears to see his teacher... Continue reading

A month ago today, our Audri Jayne turned five. FIVE! I no longer have a toddler running around the house but rather a little girl. This past year, she has grown and changed so much. From her looks to her attitude (yikes), I feel like every time I turn around... Continue reading

For months before her birthday, Audri asked if she could have a birthday party at the gymnastics place. She was SO looking forward to her big day and being able to have a birthday party. So I booked the date and I'm so thankful it did not disappoint! She had... Continue reading

Whew, it's been a while! Life has been exceptionally busy for us lately. But it is time for a major update and a iPhone photo dump. Here goes... First up… we moved. And it’s pretty much been madness ever since. Like it wasn’t madness before when we were building. Who... Continue reading

Guess who won their kickoff tourney? It's so hard to believe it's time for softball tournaments when it is still so freezing outside! Let's hope it warms up! Continue reading

At the end of March, we celebrated Nicky Roo's fourth birthday! The kids gave her a new toy and she had her favorite treat, vanilla ice cream. We sure love our Nicky girl! Continue reading

This winter, Jackson was lucky enough to do the Eastmont Saturday morning basketball camp and the Little Hoops League through Wenatchee Valley College. We were a late addition to the Little Hoops League and I'm so glad he was able to participate. The kids were broken into teams and coached... Continue reading

Confession… this is definitely one area I’ve been horrible about sharing. Our lives have pretty much been turned upside down since mid-June and to be honest, I’ve struggled with just getting through life let alone keeping up in other areas of my life that are non-essential. Like sitting down to... Continue reading

We've had quite a winter this year. Super cold with lots of snow at times. Last weekend, we tried out sledding at our new house and it ended up being awesome. The kids had a blast and we can't wait to do it again! Continue reading

Another holiday season has come and gone. And while this one was far from traditional for us, we still had such a great time with family and the kiddos. It was the most memorable Christmas Eve for us as for the first time ever, we got to witness a marriage... Continue reading

BJ's cousin Erica puts on a pretty amazing fundraiser every December. It is called the Brave Warrior Project and all the proceeds go to families who have kids battling cancer in our valley. It is pictures with Santa by donation. I'm so glad we made it this year. She did... Continue reading

We made our annual trek to see Christmas lights around our valley last weekend. And since we went on a Saturday, one of the houses even had a Santa. Jacks was all about it... sis, not so much. I had to sit with her. This year, we made it to... Continue reading

Mid-December, Jackson was selected as the “star of the week” for his class. His teacher selects one student a week throughout the school year to be star of the week and they get to do a presentation to the class on Friday. They fill out a poster about themselves and... Continue reading

Wow... long time with no posts. Our lives seems to be SO busy right now with no chance of slowing down anytime soon. I guess that comes with building a house and raising two kids. I was lucky enough to spend some one of one time with each kid last... Continue reading

Time to catch up on some pics of Halloween! We kept it simple and just bought our pumpkins at Fred Meyer. No patch for us. :) This year, the kids chose a Washington Husky "W" and Olaf to carve. They had a fun time gutting the pumpkins and as usual,... Continue reading

What a difference a year makes. When Jackson played Pop Warner football last year, it was a bit of a mess. We had a coach that had never played, things weren't really organized and while BJ and a couple other dads stepped up to help, it was just not a... Continue reading

At the end of September, our Jacksie turned eight. EIGHT. Another year has flown by right in front of our eyes. Jackson… as I sit down to write this, I can‘t help but be amazed at the person you have become. So many instances recently have made me pause and... Continue reading

At the end of September, the one that made me a mom turned eight. We celebrated his big day at Red Robin that night with family (where his face turned red as they sang) and then again at Abby's pizza after his Saturday morning football game with his friends. It... Continue reading

Last week was a big week for Audri. The start of preschool and dance. And they both happened on the same day. I was so thankful Deanne had this picture to send me because I failed to get a dance picture. Our girl was so excited to start both of... Continue reading
