Disney World

We went to WDW the last week of October and it was a blast. It was really hot unusually hot for that time of the year. We had a fun time despite the heat. I don't have alot of pictures to share because not very many of them made it to my computer they are on the lap top. I also am not in very many. In fact after seeing a few a friend asked if I was even on this vacation. I guess that is what happens when you have a hard time giving up your camera.

This is out side of the pirates of the Caribbean. A nice lady from England offered to take our pictures. There were alot of people from England there. As they say it must be there "Holiday" time.
As you can see from these pictures my children all love roller coasters. I was just impressed with what good pictures my new camera takes. This was from quite a ways away.

The boys rocking out at Rock n' rollercoaster.
This was the dinosaur ride at animal kingdom...

Ben's football team has been amazing this year. So far they are 3-0. They beat the team last night 43-0. Bennett has had quite a bit of playing time and has "Pancaked" quite a few. Brian said last night that watching football players get hit is always somewhat painful but it is a different ballgame when it is your own child out there. Thank goodness that Bennett is the one doing most of the hitting!!

I need to get better at this... It seems like since the beginning of August this is what our life has been..
Ben with his coach getting some advice.
He plays center which totally stresses me out!! Alot depends on those centers!
Just a cool picture taken by Baxter. Which I have to say is quite the photographer!
Since Bennett goes to a charter school that doesn't have a football team he has to play for the high school that he would be going to. These are the only players on the IT (Indian Trail) team that go to Harborside.
Giving mom that don't bother me look.!!

Over all I have to say that I am enjoying football. Bennett gets to play quite a bit and might even start playing defense.

Not all play grounds make this possible. Wheelchairs, walkers, and other devices can hinder a child from being able to play in an ordinary playground.

Chloe's Sunshine Playground is an accessible park that is tentatively planned to be built in Syracuse, UT. The playground will include features that will allow ALL children to play side-by-side, including those with special needs.

A "Scentsible" Way to Help!

Just wanted to let you know that there is another great opportunity for you to help raise money for the playground! If you love Scentsy (and who doesn't!), July is the time to buy. And Julie is the gal to buy it from! Scentsy consultant, Julie Dillman, is donating the profit of her sales for the month of July to our cause. How cool is that!

Go to her blog HERE to find out how!

Get some new scents. Buy extra for gifts. Let your friends and family know too.

Thanks everyone!!!

Scripture Bowl!!!

This was team Testosterone and the princess. They didn't want to participate but the did in the end and I think had a blast. Sofia, Fernanda, Danejah, Dalton, and Troy.
This was the B team and they came in 3rd. Chris, Colin, Dustin, Justin, Matt.
The A Team they came in 4th. Nathan, Baxter, Noah, Natalie, Matt wasn't on the team but he drew their flag.

Over all I think it was a great night.. Last year we had three boys go and did ok. This year we had 14 kids participate and came in 3rd and 4th. It was a great night. The cool thing is the majority of them are sophomores and freshman. So we hopefully will do well again next year.
Way to go guys!!!!!!

Cassie's Baptism

As I was going through pictures I realized that I forgot to post about Cassie's Baptism. What a horrible mother I am I guess thats what happens with child #4!! Oopps!!
Cassie and her beautiful dress. Getting ready!
Grandpa and Grandma came out for the big event.

It was an amazing day. This was the last time I will go through that as a mother. It was a very monumentous day. I can't believe that my baby is growing up so very fast!! Does any one know how to make them stop?

Sisterly love!!! How cute!! How long will it last???
