CLassic SKating!

We had a Fun Filled start to our Morning at Classic Skating for Chase's Birthday Party! It was from 10-12 and I took the babies and Roller skated while Boston rode his scooter & they were in their Stroller, (it was quite comical) . They had rented it out for the Party so they didn't have a ton of people everywhere, which was great! I brought Hayes & Olivia's bikes so they could play with those also.
Geoff and I were the ONLY adults who Played red light, green light.........and WON! Sometimes you just can't help pretending to be a kid!

Oh Boston had his School Carnival on friday. Which was a blast. He shot the target with a Ball and Dunked his Principal in Water! It was great, all the kids thought it was AWESOME! He also won a huge Cake on the cake walk, he was very excited.
Then I was in Charge of the Cotton Candy station, and he & Esdee would occasionally come and help make it with me. We had a blast!

Our school had a silent auction with great Baskets of everything, Our class was in charge of the Disney theme, and each class had a theme and they auctioned them all off.
I did end up winning "DREAM DINNERS" 6 dinners valued at $150 and I ended the bid @ $80! I have been wanting to try those so bad, so Yeah ME!
I am going to the Conference session tomorrow from 2-4 with witney, We are so excited, we hope the VIP seats sit us up pretty close to the front!

I will post pictures soon, It's taking forever!

We went to pick up My Dad & Madge from the Airport and then went to Market Street Grill for Jill's Birthday!
She absolutley loves that place, It was good.
Boston had a Birthday Party to go to at Backyard Adventures and then when we went to pick him up later he was soooooo Excited to Play with Grandma & Grandpa! He has already played Marbles, Chinese Checkers & Chess! He has a full weekend ahead of him!
Tomorrow is our School Carnival, I am in charge of the Cotton Candy, Oh NO, That could be dangerous for me, I may be a little bit on a sugar high!

Madge's Son Chris is working with Senator Orrin Hatch, so he got them and us VIP tickets to all of the General Conference sessions! So i am still deciding on which session I can go to! How fun will that be. I have never been up to the Conference center. I think I will do Sunday afternoon with Mindy. Dad and Madge said they want to stay with the kids so we can go up.
OH how nice is it when you have your parents here! I love it!
I have to get up nice and Early for my morning run........ I am now at 3 miles (that's pretty good for me)

See you tomorrow

They had the Cub scout Pack meeting tonight also, Which Chase is now a TIGER CUB!
Boston got Belt loops and Pins for Baseball, Swimming, & Soccer. He also got the Bobcat badge, and a pin that he got to Pin onto me! Very Cool night for these boys, We have a fabulous scout leader and makes it so great for these kids to be so involved.
We don't have the Pinewood Derby until March and Boston is already Sketching out his Cars.......He has like 12 sketches and they are all really cool, thanks to his Dad!

"Olivia the Pig" Material

Here is what I am working on right now! I finally got it all cut out and now I am trying to see how I want it to lay out! Isn't it so cute! The Borders are cut out, they are just not in the Picture.
It's a little bit bigger than a baby quilt, and not quite a twin size, I don't think.
You know your a Dork, when you get excited to Blog about what your doing!

I better quit rambling and Get to Bed!
Good Night.

FHE! (Family Home Evening)

Tonight was our Family's turn to clean the Church! And it definitley needed to be cleaned. Our ward is in an older church, and you can tell nobody really tries to clean it right. So cory Pulled a "Phil Gunther", and Tore into it! We stuck the babies in the Nursery room, Hoping they would stay and Play......But they Remembered "The ROOM"! We did it and it looks great!

Boston has a Baseball game tomorrow in Taylorsville, a Pack meeting on Wednesday, and Grandma and Grandpa visiting on Thursday,& our School Carnival on Friday,& Chase's Birthday Party on Saturday Yeah! We are so excited to have some Company, especially Grandpa (my Dad), He is like another child in the House, so Boston thinks he has a friend sleeping over all weekend long, and I have to remind Grandpa to be careful, as he slide tackles my son onto the Kitchen floor and barely misses the corner.... It is quite funny!
We are getting all practiced up on our Chess Skills for Grandpa too! So you better be coming prepared!
I am loving this weather! This week is supposed to stay so nice, in the 70's! I need to get out and go biking or Something before it's GONE!

I am the Room Mom for Boston's First Grade class and we are auctioning off a huge Disney Basket full of DISNEY everything for the Carnival on friday, & I still need to get some mom's to come and help with the Carnival too. So what am I doing just rambling on when i really need to be calling around and getting it all put together!

Have a Good Night.

Boston & the Sugarkings had their first Loss! I dont even remember the Score, However they did play against a 9yr old team!
It was good for them to see what mistakes they were making, so now the coaches can help them improve the game. They really didn't lose that bad, I just had 2 babies all over the place so I didn't keep track of the score.

Boston got the Game Ball! He was the only one to hit off of this amazing pitcher! He was so excited, everyone thought he was the BOMB! It was pretty amazing for him, He even scored in 2 runs, and scored for himself also!
We have three more games and then we are done with Baseball until Spring.
Soccer is now over also, until the Spring, So I pretty much don't look forward to the Spring Craziness again!

I Had a NORMAL day today Jane! I can finally say that! I started off going to the temple, and thank goodness for the Rain cause all of our Practices were cancelled. Boston Just went to scouts tonight,and that was all we had today, It was so nice to just hang out at home and Make a yummy Sweet and Sour Chicken dinner! (Which was delicious& Very easy)

Cory & I went and Saw the movie "World Trade Center" on Friday! It's a documentary on the life of two Policemen who were buried in the Rubble and Survived.
There were only 20 people who were rescued and they were 18 and 19! It's a great Movie. Obviously very Sad. Bring lots of Tissues.

Here is a Great Quote from Jay Leno:

"With Hurricanes, Tornados, Fires out of Control, Mudslides, Flooding, Severe Thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of Bird flu and Terrorist attacks, "Are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegience?"

Happy Birthday to my Mom!

This is the sweetest, most patient, rule abiding, loving Mother. I don't think she has ever raised her voice to me or any of us children.
How come I (or We) didn't inherit that trait mom. What a Great Example of Patience!

We had a busy weekend.... Boston played a Baseball game in Park City on Saturday and they won 20-6 ! It was a great game. Nana came and watched (helped)! Boston got a hit and scored two runs and then he ended up scoring too. SO it was a good day for Boston, especially since he had a fever during the game! What a trooper.

Sunday was our monthly Family Home Evening dinner at our house, Where we had a delicious Ham dinner and gave out awards from our Lake Powell trip. It was so fun to give the awards with the Gag gifts that went with.
My favorite ones were .......
Best Milks-Todd (total inside Joke with his 2 yr old daughter)
The Kelly Hog--Olivia (she would not leave Aunt Kelly alone)

Good Times.....

WOW! Where to begin. Well our day started with Breakfast at the Blanchard familia! Where they have a huge swing that is hooked between two trees and you can get some serious Air. There was quite the line for that one! Then we went to Riverside for a carnival like day with BBQ and lots of FREE food and Rides! Then off to swim at The pool there. From 5-8 we went to our friends and Neighbors the Rhodes and had a Volleyball night with lots of friends and food! It was so fun, They have a sand Volleyball court in their backyard and it is so fun.We pick teams (adults only) and end up having a championship game at the end. We (my team) Team #2 made it to the championship with team #1 (cory's team) we did lose, but it was a pretty close game. We ended up having 5 teams playing.
Now we are back to school again tomorrow. And I am back to Laundry, BIG time!
Oh yah! I forgot my camera all day! But I did get a few pics from Volleyball. Oops!
