Party of Five becomes the J Crew...

is the first thing to change.  Lots to update... pictures to come soon.  I am trying to stay up on my 365 day blog and notice if it's not one blog, it's another that is falling behind.  Not sure I'll do three blogs next year.  Might be time to consolidate them into one or maybe just two blogs.  Doesn't seem necessary to have my stuff scattered across three blogs and some of the stuff gets double posted.  In any case, a run down...

September 1st, Jett's 6th birthday
September 2nd, Radd's birth
October 15th, Sky's 8th birthday
October 31st, Halloween and Dads 42nd birthday
November 5th, Sky's baptism
November 6th, Radd's blessing

My goal is to catch up on some things now that the main events are behind me and I've got a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving.  Looking forward to things calming down a bit!!!

Wedding dinner/Wedding

My brother got married this weekend and being pregnant (seems to be my excuse for a lot of things huh?) I didn't take many pictures.  I managed to take a couple of my kids at the wedding dinner of course and then of the kids at the reception in the cute outfits I made for my girls.

4th of July weekend...

Every year for the last couple years we've gone up to Park City for the 4th of July weekend with our great friends The Plants (my best friend Suzanne's family).  We stay at a condo that sits just in front of the parking lot that they let the Park City fire works off.  We're able to sit inside and just watch them from the window.  It's fabulous!  We always swim, eat lots of yummy treats, go on the Alpine Slide, shop, etc.  This year being prego, we opted not to do the Alpine Slide so we swam extra and hung out more as a family just inside the condo.  The kids didn't seem to mind.  They love hanging out with their daddy!

Track Meet

Track meet day...
It was hectic, trying to find where Sky had to be while carrying the cooler and keeping an eye on my two littles at the same time.  Dad hadn't come to get Jett yet, so I had the kids.  I freak out in crowds.  I don't like them or the idea that my kids can get lost.  We sat in the shade discussing what to do in case I couldn't find them.  A good friend of mine had an experience once and because she had prepared her children for it, it ended with the perfect outcome.

So... there I was kinda the frantic, prego lady trying to listen to when Sky's events were up.  In the mix of it all... I missed the call for the 50 meter dash.  When I figured it out, I had her go up to her coach and find out what she could do.  She cried.  The coach had her race the 50 meters with the older group of girls which meant, she got last of course.  She cried more.  Not good for the ego.  I asked her coach if there was any way she could run the 100 meter with her age group even though she wasn't registered to do so.  She allowed her to do it.  It was then up to me to convince Sky who was completely depleted to try it.  Dad showed up just then and I explained...  He was able to convince her to try it.  I'm so glad she did!  She pulled it together and ran the race.  And then... took SECOND!  It was smiles from there on out!  And a text to Dad to tell him the news!

Good morning!

So after almost two weeks of fighting, arguing, figuring out who was in charge and who's game they should be playing, they finally worked it out and this morning I woke up to giggles and laughter.

Learning to bike ride...

Sky started out ready and smiling... but that didn't last long.  Soon perfectionist Sky showed her true frustrated self when she couldn't get it ALL BY HERSELF on the FIRST TRY!!!  Gee... wonder why she's like that?  Jett, enjoyed dad helping him and was starting to get the hang of it.  This frustrated Sky even more.  Brooke went off on her own, riding back and forth with the training wheels still on, and could not have been happier!
