Skye had a Soccer game last Thursday, and scored a HAT TRICK!  That's 3 goals!  She was pumped out of her mind!  She has milked the "3 prizes" to the max!  We were super proud parents.  Love you Skye!

Favorite Pic

I love this picture. What an awesome fluke! A couple of months ago, when Raider had just started smiling, and I was at Boulevard Home Furnishings picking out our flooring. Davyn was whining a ton, so, since she loves having her picture taken, I tried to distract her by taking a picture of her. This is what I got. I didn't even notice Raider till I got home and was showing Robbie the samples of flooring.

Soccer 2011.....the blue team

Check out our Soccer Star!

I think she is finally getting the concept!

 No Way!  Who would have thought that with such midgets as parents, Skye would be the tallest!
 Yes, that is our WHOLE team fighting for the ball.  Hello 4 year olds playing soccer!

2 Chocolate Cookies+2 Teapots of Milk = An Hour of Freedom

Today was a fun day. My girls played well together the whole time! Davyn didn't beat up Raider, and I was productive. I love these days. They are few and far between, but they make all of the days of fighting, whining, and crying worth it. I love my kids. These two were so content with 2 cookies, and milk in their teapots. It seriously lasted a whole hour. They did come in to fill up their teapots with water twice, but I would take that any day. In fact, we may do it again tomorrow!

This picture cracks me up.  I can't look at it without picturing the part of Cinderella when Gus Gus is in the teacup and the stepmother is about to pour her tea in and the one dribble keeps coming down, and his belly sinks in.   RANDOM.


Worth it!

I love this BOY!

OM Friggity friggin gosh! This boy cracks me up!  He has seriously been spoiled.  Just one funny thing I want to remember about him.  So Robbie fed him a bottle tonight, and I discovered something hilarious.  I hadn't noticed it till Robbie was feeding him, but when he eats, he has to be laying down in your arms so he can see your face.  That's not all!  If you aren't looking at him he gets irritated and cries.  Really Dude???  I kind of like it :)

Our New House

We are building another house! I didn't take pictures as we built last time, so I wanted to really document it this time. I am so stoked to build this time. I have done some new things that I can't wait to see done. You probably feel, every time, like you've done it perfect this time, and I do. I think I did last time too though, and we changed a TON!  So here is our lot just after we bought it.  We had to bring in 100 truck loads of dirt just to make it level with the sidewalk.

Here it is after the added dirt and after we dug the footings.  Each step is so exciting.  You can see the shape and size of the house.  It's starting!

We poured our cement on Thursday.  The girls and I spent a lot of the day out there delivering breakfast and lunch to all of the awesome guys that helped us out.  Thank heavens the lot next to us is prepped to build as well, so there is lots of dirt (out of the way) for the kids to play in.  They loved it.

Oh look, working hard? or hardly working.  I love this picture.  Totally sums up their jobs.  Ricky is clearly not working.  Cody is.....??  Robbie appears to be digging, but check out the size of scoop he got, and is he pushing it on with his foot?  WOW
What a STUD
WooHoo the cement is done!!  Every step is so exciting from here!  We are obsessed, and go out there every day with the tape measure checking out how big each room will be, and imagine what it will look like.  Today we even started planning out our yard.

Holy Cow!  This girl is my current trial.  She is lucky she is so dang CUTE!  I was loving the peace and quiet this afternoon.  I had turned on Bolt after nap-time, and I thought both of the girls were watching.  NOPE!  Dav was in my bathroom applying her makeup, and painting her toenails.  Doing a pretty good job for a 1 year old I might add!  She was so proud of herself when she came out to show me, how could I get mad?  Besides, Skye had her turn as well.  I wonder if Raider will follow in his sisters' footsteps!?  Dad would KILL!  Love your smile Davyn!

A look back.....

 This is Skye when she was just older than Dav.  The top pic is mascara.  Gorgeous...  The bottom picture was taken 4 days later!  I guess my girls just love to be pretty!
 These two pictures are when Skye decided to do her makeup like DAD!  She saw Robbie after a football game with his "makeup" under his eyes.  She thought it was awesome, and soon after, had "FOOTBALL EYES" like dad!
 Pretty Proud of Herself as well.

The Post I Hoped I'd Never have to Post

Shoot!  She really did it!  I was putting Skye's hair in a pony tail, and found this little cHuNk!  I asked her why she did it, and she said she just wanted to try it.  What could I say to that?!
