I can't believe that Bridger is three. He is getting so big and he is such a great brother. We are so thankful for Bridger in our lives...we wouldn't be as happy with out him.
Bridger loves to have fun and smile. He is a happy boy. We love you Mister Bridger Maxx. Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Becca!!

Happy Birthday to my oldest friend in the whole world Becca. Not that Becca is OLD, just that she has been my friend for 22 years! I can still remember meeting her at the bus stop for the first time. We have sure had a lot of fun in the last 22 years.

We have gone sledding down her hill, fed baby lambs, ran from snakes, ran from boys, broke teeth and wall decorations, went through school, got married, had kids and just had a blast.
Happy Birthday Bec, I hope it is a great one!

Songs I love

Happy Birthday, Mister Parker! I can't believe you are nine years old, WOW how time flies. I swear it was only yesterday you were born.
Parker is SO lucky, he gets to be in Florida for his birthday. And Yesterday for his Birthday we got to go to the Zoo. It was so fun, we went on a jungle safari and got to see all sorts of animals we don't have in our zoo back home. Parker (and all the other boys) favorite part was feeding the birds. Here is Parker holding a bird in his hand while he feeds it.
I hope you had a great day buddy! I love you!

We made it to Florida, in one piece. Everything went great...maybe a little too great. No one cried, not even for a second. Each of the kids were in charge of their own back pack and they each had a parent they were assigned to. The kids did awesome. We had to RUN in the Denver airport, to get to our next flight, and each child RAN with Brent and I, and we all got on the plane. I guess our Luggage did not RUN fast enough, because when we arrived in Tampa our luggage was still in Denver. It arrived about 20 hours later. But I can't complain the kids were wonderful and that is truly what mattered. Thanks boys and Annaka for being so good!! I love you!! Here is Noah on the plane, ready for take off. A little nervous but so excited!
Corbin was overly excited, he was spazing out a little, but once we got on the plane he was great.
Hooray for Parker...we are ready to go see Grandpa and Grandma.
Bridger sat by the window, but had to have the shade down, because he did not want the sun to "burn my eyeballs".
Here are the boys in Denver ready for take off...Florida here we come!

Nothin' much!

We have been up to nothing lately....HAHAHA. As I sit here to update a little bit, Holly's laundry needs to be rotated, bags need to be packed and I am sure I don't have everything in order. In three days we, yes I mean all seven of us, are going to get on a plane and fly to Florida to see my Mom and Dad.
I do hope we get there in one piece. So I thought I would post a few cute pictures of Annaka.
Here she is just a smiling away. She now knows what a Camera is,
and what to do when she sees it,

If you can't tell by this picture Annaka has discovered her tongue.

She sticks it out at everyone, everywhere.

She can even twist it over, what talent she has. We are so excited to see Mom and Dad, Ryan and Andrew. We are counting down the days, yippee three to go. We wish the whole family could be together, but a few is better than none. So Andrew get practicing guitar hero, because we are ready to ROCK!!

Parker had his first pine wood derby last week. He didn't do as well as Brent hoped, but his car did make it down the track. His Car is the black one with gold flames, his best friend Tyler had the Cleveland Cavaliers Car. I hope Parker took away the knowledge of good sportsmanship, but with the way the Dads acted it could be hard to walk away with anything. I never remember going to my brothers pine wood derby, maybe because by the time Ryan was in scouts I was 12/13 and I could be left home alone. I never realized what a huge deal these little cars could be, I mean you would think Jeff Gordon was personally coming to be the judge. Brent is in the Webelos scouts and one of his boys made the comment that he was so excited this year for the derby, because it was going to be his last year so his dad was going to let him pick out the color. Yes, his dad did all of his car, poor David got to pick out the color. Really, is it that important to win. Dads were re oiling the wheels before each run, and reweighing the cars, it is really crazy if you ask me. Isn't it supposed to be for the boys? Here is Parker racing his car down the track, yeah Parker.
Parker did not want his picture taken, so this is the look he gave me. Did someone put something in the punch?
Here is Parker getting his Award for the race. He did not win first place. Brent's scout David did, maybe his DAD does know how to build a good car. We think you still did wonderful Parker.
