Updates on House!!

Yesterday we went down to the house to meet with the cabinet guy and the boys decided they wanted to help the "workers" with the trusses. So they got in the "tractor" and took their own pictures!!! Yes I did not know they did this until I was looking at the pictures to load them on the computer. Then they went around and gathered up all the nails because the workers needed them!!!! Don't ya just love boys. Anyway here is updated pictures of the house. They got all the trusses up except for the garage. So it is really starting to look like a house and becoming real to me. Scary!!!!!

well soccer has finally started!! Branson finally gets to play this year so we are soccer parents!!! Lucky both of their games tonight were at the same time and right next to each other. Bridger was so excited that he made two goals and almost a third and Branson was just a blast to watch. He was much more aggressive than I would have thought he would have been. He was always right with the ball and almost made a goal. He was so excited and funny to watch. I hope he stays this way. So I am sure we will have soccer at least three times this week because practices are on two different nights!!! How fun!!!!

Instead of a thumb sucker I get a toe sucker!! The other night I heard him moving around so I got up to check on him and he wasing sucking his toes!! He loves to play with his feet and does it all the time. I can't believe he can get his toes into his mouth what a flexible kid.

Just some cute pictures of Broxton sitting all by himself in the bath. He loves the bath and gets everyone wet from splashing so much. He has decided that he would rather sit than lay down so we need to get some fun bath toys. Doesn't he just have the cutest smile!!!

These are pictures of the cute cowboy outfit my mom got for him. I think I waited a little too long to let him wear it but at least we got pictures of it. It is really cute it has fringe on the back of the jacket and the pants. He looked way handsome too!!!! The bottom picture they are both watching t.v. so I just had to take a picture. My babies!!!!

This is a soccer camp that Bridger took with the girls soccer team. It was for 2 days and then they got to show off what they learned at the varisty soccer game. He had a fun time and got a shirt out of it. Of course Branson threw a fit cause he wanted a shirt too so they let him kick three goals and he won a movie and a hat. I don't think you can see him in the first picture but he really did make all three goals and after all that he was still crying for a shirt so hopfully they do this again next year so he can be old enough to get a shirt.

Look how Cute!!!

Isn't this just sooo cute???? Shantala's sister made one for her so we decided to make one for a girl in our ward and look it actually turned out!!!! We basically did it all by ourselves we did have help from my mom to pin it cause I was trying to do it backwards and it wasn't working. But after her help everything worked out great. I thought it was way cute so I had to show it off!!!!

Walls we have WALLS!!!

This is last week!!!

This is TODAY!!! WOW how exciting!!! We could see this from our house so we had to take a walk down to see it up close. Then of course we need to have pictures so I made sure the guys didn't mind having their picture taken but I didn't mention that they would be on the internet. HAHAHA!!! Anyway I am getting really excited now because there is actually something there besides a hole in the ground. But I am stressing out about picking everything out like flooring and cabinets and doors and paint colors and windows and on and on and on. I just want it all to magically appear. So if anybody out there knows any magic please let me know!!!!

Branson's first day of school!!!

Branson's first day of school is finally here!! He has been so excited for school to start. Can you believe he actually has on a outfit that matches. I didn't think it was going to happen but I'm glad I finally convinced him cause he looks so dang handsome but so grown up too. He has one of his friends from last year in his class but he told me that he misses his old kids. I'm sure he will meet some good new friends cause there is 27 kids in his class, plenty to chose from!!!!
Yes that is a tatoo on his arm. He had to have it and it has lasted longer than I thought it would so yea something to show on the first day!!!!
He has also worn this same outfit all week because they are his "school clothes" I have tried to tell him that he has other school clothes but so far he is not convinced. Hopefully by next week we can find a different outfit he can wear all week!!!! Oh my Branson what am I ever going to do with you!!!!

Yea know when you are just cruising through life thinking everything is pretty good, kids are back in school, baby is only waking up maybe two times a night, and then wham you wake up for that wonderful dream into a night mare!!! Well last night about 11:00 that is what happened to me. Broxton woke up screaming. I finally got him back to sleep and then 20 minutes later he wakes up again. This time nothing is calming him down. He is just screaming at the top of his lungs and pushing away from me. I'm not sure who was most frustrated last night Collin, Broxton or me. I was trying everything I could think of and he just kept screaming and then Collin would come in and make suggestions and of course I had already tried all his suggestions but I kept having to repeat myself to him cause he couldn't hear me over the screaming so he decided he was going to take matters in his own hands and tried giving him a bottle. Well if you can imagine what that did it didn't make anything better that is for sure. So after about an hour we got him calmed down and back to sleep for about 45 min. Then what do ya know it started all over again. This time Collin said he just peed all over me so I am going to sleep in the other room. I said okay but can you get me a diaper thinking that it would be better than taking a screaming baby through a house of sleeping kids who have school the next day but of course men have their own ideas. So needless to say I had about 2 hours of sleep last night and I am the one who had to get Bridger up and ready for school only to find out later that he didn't have school because they didn't have any power. Ohh what a nightmare I so want my dream back!!!! Jake I am feeling so bad for you right now how are you doing this?????? What can I do to help him????
