I am buddy the elf

So I took this quiz about which "holiday" character you are most like and this is what it said:

You're Buddy from Elf!
With you, there's no pretending -- you believe in the magic of the holiday season with all of your heart. Your friendliness and generosity impress even the Scroogiest, Grinchiest naughty-listers. You're always rushing around on holiday errands, picking out presents, and preparing decorations, but no matter how busy you get, you have an endless supply of good cheer. Smiling's your favorite, but you're also a fan of hugs.

I do love the holidays, this year though it has been quite crazy but somehow I never viewed myself as Buddy from Elf:)

Sorry I haven't blogged in awhile, I have been busy w/ life...well actually now that Evan has been working nights I have taken to watching cheesy Christmas movies until all hours of the night. As you can see it is two in the morning and I have decided to update my blog!!!!!!!

Chloe Anne Beck is here!!!!!

Congratulations to Kim and Rob and their new little girl! I am so excited for Chloe to have arrived. I am very happy Savannah has a baby sister now as well. It was fun to watch the kids while Rob and Kim had their baby. We have had a house full of kids and I have decided I definatly do not want 8 kids of my own but I don't mind borrowing others once in awhile:)

Aubree's version of makeup

This is what happens when your older kids don't put away their markers. Aubree thought she looked "pretty" so I couldn't resist taking a picture of her before her bath!!!!

The Wretched Flu............

Well I have survived death....but am faced with the unpleasant task of putting my house back in order. We have all been really sick, I was sick for about a week which as a mom just can't happen. But we are still alive and now just piecing our lives back together. At least I have lost some weight, right?:)

Well school has started for us as well as the crazy schdueles. I have been trying to get through these first couple of weeks without forgeting anything or anyone:) Everyone is happy w/ their teachers and so am I. Aubree doesn't know what to do w/ herself w/ her siblings at school all day! Ashton and Ethan both played their first soccer games and did fantastic. Emilee and Ashton have both started to take piano lessons, we will see how they like playing. I will post some pics as soon as I have time to download them onto my computer.

Happy Autumn

Monsters & Vikings

A picture of us and our good friends the Becks. We had so much fun at the beach this day and actually a really fun weekend:) Kim has this picture on her blog as well but I just thought it was too cute not to post on mine!!!!

A last hurrah......

Wild Rivers.....
I took the kids to Wild Rivers w/ a few friends to say "goodbye" to the summer:( We really enjoyed ourselves and Aubree went down the slide all by herself, it made me realize how big she is getting! School starts this Thursday and the kids can't wait to find out who their teachers are going to be (secretly neither can I).

11 Years of Marriage

11 years today how fast the time flies! I just have to say how much I love and appreciate my husband and all he does for our family. He just finished his summer class and will start the fall session in a couple of weeks plus he has just started a job w/ a more demanding schduele. Anyways I just wanted to let him know I value our friendship and marriage and look forward to many more years:)

How the Summer flies by....

I cannot believe that school starts in just three weeks! The boys have just started soccer again so we already are having to adhere to a schduele again. We have enjoyed our freedom and playtime while it lasted.
Evan is almost done w/ this semester of school. His new job is going well, he is very busy at work so he will just take a couple of classes in the fall. We miss having him around but he is working hard:) We will celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary this Friday!!!

New blog

I have never had a blog before so this should be interesting. I really enjoy looking into my friends blogs and seeing what is going on in their lives. So I thought I would create a blog of my own so people could check in on our family from time to time. Evan has just started a new job and is also back at school. He has been doing a great job of juggling family, work, and school. I am so proud of all he does for our family.
