Gabe's Game Today

I decided to take some shots today at the game but missed the coolest play by Gabe. I keep regretting that I missed it but on the positive side I'm glad that I saw it with 2 eyes instead of thru my lens. He was on a breakaway with 3 other boys on him and while he was running his hardest was beating them and had possession of the ball and was ready to shoot when on of them tripped him and he fell, should have been a red card. We are so proud of how he played tonight...with all his heart. I think our Gabe is coming back. It was his best game even though we lost but he came out of it a winner by how hard he played. He was so happy!!!

A little something from Gabe

Today I talked with Gabe about money and our circumstances and he then asked, "How are you happy?" I smiled and said "Its not everyday that I am but I try."
I've read an article in the ensign its says "be of good cheer" Christ said it all the time to Paul.
Its a phrase that runs thru my mind all the time.

Celtics vs Firebirds

Its a 2-0 win for us. Wish I could have been there. Bryn had 2 shots and an assist, this is all from the defense.

A little Elly Quote

Quote for Elly "Mom, why don't you save your money and buy some medicine?" I laughed so hard. The simplicity of a child. Its all a matter of just saving your money.

For Those

....For the husband who told his wife, "I love you" one last time before his plane went down in a field, for the wife who stopped in the stairs to call her husband to say, "I will love you forever", for the mothers and fathers who kissed their kids goodbye the morning they died, for the policemen who rushed in with the firemen to help get others out only to die themselves, for the soldiers who fought back and lost their lives. Today, tomorrow, ten years from now, we will remember.
I remember vividly that day. Greg called me and woke me up, yes I was still sleeping had a 2 and 1 year old at the time, he told me to go turn on the t.v. I did. I was in shock. I couldn't believe what I saw. I was thinking about everyone actually going thru this tragedy and how scared they where.  I was scared for them and sad for the families. 
The t.v. was on all day watching as it all unfolded. The scene at the twin towers when they fell, and smoke that followed so much destruction that day meanwhile the heaven's where flooded. Its been 10 years and I still remember.

Today I wondered how am I going to get diapers.
I thought to look inside Beckam's closet and check in the box and WALA...diapers.
Its time for me to find the small miracles.

this year.
Well we celebrated with a BBQ, just like it says to, but little did I think about why...shame on me. I should do better! 
We thought to give the pool one last swim, the BIG pool, but it was too cold. So, we pulled out the warm water and filled the little one.

And had to steal a cute photo of this little one. 

Just building Grandpa's hut for all of his garden stuff.
