lets begin again

i am going to start blogging again. its been an entire year since i have. but i am going to start up again. i will just start from the beginning of the summer.
These first 5 pictures are from aspen grove.we had a ton of fun there.
Next is all the pictures from the 4th. My sister and her family came down and we had a blast with them.
After they left, Keena and Andy had Efy and they seemed to have a lot of fun.
Right when they got back, Me, Keena, and Malia all headed off to girls camp up in Shalom. We had a really fun time up there.
As of today. We are packing up for Oregon and Washington. We are leaving for Oregon on Wednesday, staying there until Saturday, then driving the rest of the way to Seattle to stay with the Andersons. We like to call it the Anderson resort.
Enjoy the pictures!

Knee - Deep!

Well we are knee deep in soccer season. With three kids playing right now it's been pretty busy. Malia is still on her competition team and is playing great. She has killer practices (2 per week) and two games per week which is keeping her to speak! She loves the sport and I really like the coach and team she is on. Caleb loves soccer season - there is just no other way to say it! Andy is his coach -- which he also loves -- and they are doing great. Marcus on the other hand is sort of plugging through the season. Last year he had a great team with all his little school friends but this year he is on a team with a bunch of random kids that don't even go to his school. He also doesn't love the sport because it "makes his legs too tired". So he will just finish out the season and we will talk about next year.

Needless to say this is our life right now but I love it. I love watching them play -- well unless it's 20 degrees and snowing!

Okay I know it I am the worst blogger ever you don't have to say it!!! No excuses except well I guess I just can't keep up with everything! I mean one minute it's "Hey try out these new blog things" and now it's "look how cool FaceBook is". Really I mean this is pushing me to the limits in the technology world. But if I am going to be married to Andy I guess I really should try and keep caught up.

But since it's conference weekend and time to fix those bad habits this is coming up. Time to keep up with blogging and no more excuses..........

So it's either blogging or keeping Quincey's hand out of the Nutella jar!!

It's a Miracle...

Well it's officially an early Christmas Miracle at our house. This year Andy decided to put up the lights (which is a miracle in and of itself) but he also had them up and working on December 1st. Now to some of you that may not sound like much but since Andy has compared Christmas lights to childbirth we all know that it's a big accomplishment. The lights look great and we are all just happy to have them. I guess it's true there really are Christmas miracles!!

Disneyland 2008

Wow, we had a lot of fun in Cali! It was about 70 degrees each day and there was no such thing as lines. We also went to the beach a few times, and we also saw a lot of "Vote Yes" signs everywhere... even one in the sky over Disneyland. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words so here are a few:

Happy Halloween

We carved our pumpkins finally. I love how the kids each did their own personality in the pumpkins.

Here is Caleb with his winning Pinewood Derby car. He was pretty excited to have his pencil car win. Andy was just happy it made it since before the race even started one of the wheels came off. I guess a little praying and some super glue saved it!
Malia just found out that she won as the student body secretary. She is pretty excited about it.
Then there is Marcus with his award winning "Lego glasses". We have more Lego creations around this house we can hardly talk about it!

How cute are these girls?? They both look so grown up lately. Thanks to Malia these two girls had quite the photo shoot.
We finally got the blog fixed and hopefully back to normal. So I thought I should share some recent cute pictures.

Cory and Amy were able to find us a cool cave-like area to park the houseboat where we had shade the whole week. The cliffs even protected us from the rain.

We went on a great frog hunt and watched lots of movies on the roof of the houseboat. We had great weather, great company, and great fun. There was a huge storm the night before we left and waterfalls fell from all the cliffs surrounding us.

It was hard to leave and come home to start school a week later but we built some great memories. There's nothing quite like sleeping in a pitch black canyon with stars and a full moon staring down at you and the sound of 13 kids snoring in the darkness. What a party.
