10 on Monday

Caden surprised this fall by wanting to play soccer--Layne nor I know much about soccer, but we signed Caden up and lucky Layne also got chosen to coach---Layne spent a lot of time on You Tube learning about soccer and trying to help Caden's team learn about soccer--we had a team of about 6 that LOVED soccer and really wanted to play and then we had about 6 players that would rather look at clouds.  Caden's team did not win any games, but they hung in there and at least scored some goals.  Caden loved it and did a good job!

We also enjoyed going to several home football games at SES this fall--Caden and I loved our matching shirts!

Our 3 sporting their Trojan Pride!

Brynn was elated to go to Princess Camp this summer---she also started dance this fall at 
Tamara Howe's School of Dance--tap and ballet.  We had a bit of a melt down the 1st couple of weeks because Miss Tammy was not her teacher, but Brynn finally adjusted and loves Miss Kandee and looks forward to dance every Thursday--although Princess Camp was pretty amazing in this girl's eyes!

My cousin Allison got married in KC this summer--we headed to Kansas City to celebrate!

June's Baptism

June was baptized Labor Day Weekend!  I had to have a picture of the cute headband we gave her--her Daddy is a Camo fan!

June is all dressed and ready for her big day--she got a dress from Caleb's Grandparent's and her headband was Lakyn's and Lakyn wore it on her baptism as well!

Honored to be this little girl's Godmother--it was a joy to share prego stories with Kristi and Caleb and be with them the day June was born--being an Aunt is pretty amazing!

Curt and Mary are also Godparents--June will have lots of love and prayers :)

All the girls--dressed up and looking pretty cute!
What a great day to celebrate!

School Days

In August Brynn started preschool at Angel's Academy and goes 3 mornings a week.  Her teacher is Miss Katrina.  We love Angel's Academy--they do a wonderful job with the children and providing a well rounded education as well as learning about Jesus in different activities and readings.

Caden started 1st grade at Southeast of Saline--he is right next door to me--which we both love--I get to sneak in for a hug--but also get to remind him to put his coat on--which he loves!

His reading is improving and his math facts are taking off--he is a very average student and has been making good choices in school and enjoys playing the computers after school with the big kids so mom can get her classroom work done!

Caden gets pretty spoiled with my wonderful co-teachers--and he and Mrs. Anderson get along pretty good and have lots of laughs :)

What a joy to have this guy in school with me--LOVE IT!

11 months!

11 months--here we go--count down to the big number 1 and I am having flashbacks of being
 8 months prego and getting my blood pressure checked once a day--whew--glad we both made it to now safe and sound!

11 months brought our 1st ear infection---and some yucky poos with the ear infection--and then the antibiotics also gave Lakyn runny, yucky poos for several days--but we powered through and all is well now except we are back to waking up several times a night again---I am telling you--Lakyn is high maintenance but her smile makes our days and she also has a fun personality!

Lakyn still just has two teeth, but I can feel the edge of another one coming in on top--I am sure that does not feel good and part of the reason she is waking up again at night!

Lakyn loves grilled cheese and continues to enjoy baked beans and black beans and rice.

Lakyn is just outgrowing her 9 month clothes and is ready for 12 month clothes and size 4 diapers!

We tried out our 1st pony tail!

Can't beat snuggle time with Daddy!

Our college friends--the Eaves Family stopped by on their way home from Thanksgiving and we got a quick picture of Lakyn and Cecilia before they left--the girls are 5 days apart and about identical in size--what cuties!  Thanks for stopping by Eaves Family--always a joy to see you!
