Ok, so I know everyone is doing this, which was reason enough NOT to do it...but the kids are all in bed, Matt's still at work and I was curiously bored. Plus, I think I'm the first one that I know of to be an "Alice." I have to say, it's very fitting. Good and bad!

Pumpkin festival

We forgot our camera but our friend Dana took this picture of us just as we were leaving the kidspace pumkin festival. Now that I think about it I should've had her take the picture with the festival in the background and not this sweet park bathroom. Although, maybe it's fitting with this crazy sugared up bunch. The kids had a blast decorating cookies and pumpkins, playing in a bouncer, exploring the pumpkin patch and winning prizes from the game booths. Max thanked me 100 times on our way home. It was a fun family event...even Matt had fun! :)

3 kids in 1 room

We pulled the crib out of storage yesterday, dusted it off and set it up. The baby spent his first night in the bedroom with the other kids. We officially have 3 kids in 1 room. We live in tight quarters but it went pretty well. I think we're going to get a little more sleep now. Yay!

This crib.

The cheap bunk bed we bought at ikea last week. It does the job.

The human highlight reel


Last week after Max scored his second goal his coach handed me his phone and said, "Max's agent is on the phone and he wants to talk to you."

At todays game he hadn't scored a goal yet and was getting really frustrated. We could all tell he was working his butt of trying to score. Someone tried to talk to the coach and he said, "Hold on a sec. Max is on a mission." So true. He eventually scored two goals and almost scored a third during the last minute of the game. His coach can't get enough of him and commented just before the game was over that "Max is like a human highlight reel." He's always sliding, diving and crashing into people. He's sure fun to watch. Good job today Max. You may be small but you're one heck of an athlete.

Baby blessing, baptism, the boys

I just got these pictures from my sister in law. Thanks again Kylee for the amazing photos. We absolutely love them. Last weekend was a big one for us. Max was baptized and then baby Lucas was blessed. It was so fun seeing all the boys in white. What a fun day for all.

Kids don't get cuter then that. Kudos to Laura Daines for the beautiful knitted blanket.

What a sweetie! I love this baby.

Proud little Max. I love this kid too!

The classic pre baptism pose with dad.

All the boys. I love the little half smile Luke gave. So sweet! What fun memories we have from the weekend. It was so much fun to have family and friends here. Mark Aug (a member Matt taught on his mission) spoke at the baptism. He did a great job. We had so much fun with the Grahams and were sad to see them go. Thanks to all that came for sharing in our special day.

He's 8? How did that happen? It was a very fun weekend for him. I will tell more in another post (when I get photos) but for now here are a few things I love about this cute kid:

1. The best older brother in the world- Mia and Lucas are lucky to have him in their lives.

2. Helpful- Max has a list of chores he does every day. He has taken out the trash every day for over a year. When he's out of town, I don't know what to do without him.

3. Intelligent- Smart, smart kid. Not only is he an excellent student, Max is very intuitive. I've
had several people ask me how he's so intelligent. They want to know what I am teaching
him and how. The truth is, he just came that way. He blows me away sometimes.

4. Athletic- Probably one of the most coordinated kids alive. Every year his soccer coaches are
blown away, and the kid has mad skateboarding skills.

5. Spicy- A better word then personality. Max is full of spice.

6. Artistic- He is following in his fathers footsteps. He's a great artist and very inventive.

7. Hilarious- Just his facial expressions crack me up. Funny kid!

8. Warm- He is so easy to get along with and has a very warm side to him.

9. Competitive- He can be overly competitive sometimes but I think it's a great quality.

10. Curious- Max always wants me to explain things in detail. He has a huge capacity for knowledge and can't get enough. Try explaining to this kid where babies come from when he's not satisfied with a generic answer. He gives me a fun for my money. :)

11. Happy- He really has such a great time with everything he does in life. It's been a great life
so far.

I love everything about you Max. Happy 8th birthday buddy!
