The week in review

Soccer, soccer and more soccer. Bryn scored 2 goals in her game and Ely assisted a goal and Gabe's games starts next week. We can't forget Greg...he scored 3 goals this week. I hosted a high fashion photography workshop this weekend and I am so happy that it's over.

Oh yes, we can't forget that we had the Doctor apt. to see the gender of the baby and....
It's a BOY!
I know the news has already been announced thru facebook or texting but had to put it down for the book. We are super excited.
Everyone came to the ultrasound to see the baby in the belly and it was cool for about 5 minutes...then they were pretty much done.
He looks very healthy and all is going well.

It looks like it starts at an early age. I got this battery pack for my studio light and it had this charger in it. Isaac found it and decided he needed to put it on Kitty.

Always a Big Brother

Sometimes being a BROTHER is even better than being a SUPERHERO. ~Marc Brown

So, I pulled out the camera and Gabe let me get a shot of him but the first 10 where crazy talking expressions. So, we laughed and kept trying for more but then he said to me "I hope you don't post these."
Here is a good shot for you.

Bryn will take care of it

Saturday night the kids wanted to watch a movie instead of going to bed...I mean who wants to go to bed anyways? We made an agreement that when the show is over there will be no fights about getting into bed and that you just do it (get in bed).
The show was over and Bryn gave Ely and Isaac piggy back rides to their rooms and tucked them into bed. She is amazing! Give her something that she wants and she will now follow thru. What happened did she grow up over night.

I am so happy about the photo above. I think it was 2 years back when the kids couldn't handle being touched by their siblings I said, "no more together shots." But since, I have been looking thru old scrapbooks I have missed the connections that they do have with each other.
My new goal is to get more shots of the kids together and so far it has worked...crossing my fingers.
These 2 girls have the sweetest connection. They will play all night together in their room (while they should be sleeping).I love to hear their role play and when they call out "mom" i'm not really sure if I should answer or not.
I hope this connection they have will stay with them forever.

A note I found today while trying to catch up on my scrapbooking.

Dear Dad and Mom
thank you for helping me with homework. thank you for helping me with soccer. thank you letting me go to school and church. thank you for letting me have the hannah montana movie. thank you for a bed. thank you for a room. thank you for clothes.

The Pain

Just one more post for today...maybe. I plan on doing some photos of Ely soon.

Last night as I got in bed my I pulled my round ligaments and laid there in pain for about 10 minutes it really felt like they were contractions. You see, I don't know what contractions fill like naturally because I have been started in all of my pregnancies.
I have been having this problem from the beginning but it hasn't been so bad until now and it's getting progressively has worried me a little. I will be seeing the Doc soon with all my questions and finding out the gender too. We will see what he says.

Gabe and soccer

Gabe has practice everyday for 2 hours and he LOVES it. He is ready for a Triple A team. We have been working on him to getting on one of his friends team from school but for now he is practicing with them everyday. Today (a Saturday mind you) Gabe got up at 7:30 to get ready for is 9:00 practice. After I picked him up he said they ran 6 laps around the track at the high school and he started out first and only 2 people passed him. He is so happy and very proud of himself for his hard work. He has developed so much in the last year that he is become a different boy. He still has that BIG heart and it is fun to see him grow into a young man. He really is a good kid.

Just had to add one of Beckham because he is so HOT! It's okay Greg knows my feelings. The other day I was giving him some suggestions as to some boy names that I liked and this one came out. I don't think he took me very serious but I am.

Gabe and I went to this game a few years ago it was pretty cool. There were so many REAL supporters wearing Beckham jersey' was a little off.
Yes, I took this picture and I wish I would have gotten more even if that meant kicking people out of the way that were getting shots too.


We have been playing this game a lot around here lately. The rule is I count to 16 and then come find him. He does find some good hiding spots but he giggles the whole time so you know exactly where he is. The kids also play this with him and he loves it just the same.

What kids say.

Mom - "Isaac how was school?"
Ike - "Good...blah blah blah blah"
Mom - gotta a good laugh outta that.

Ike - "Mom your weird."
