Double Double This This

My niece taught us a tricky hand game this weekend too. She was awesome at it! I was not so good and Caleb totally trash talked me so I made him step up to the challenge. He was not so great himself it turned out!!

Isaac's Baptism

Isaac was baptized a couple of weeks ago (Nov. 15th for those keeping records). It wasn't in our original plan to do it here in Colorado so it was a nice and quiet day. Actually the baptism was PACKED with all the families there for the other two kids who were baptized. We made sure the day was special for him and we had a lot of fun. Thanks to the Jeffers and a couple of his friends for supporting him! He's such a sweet natured, tender hearted and feisty kid! We love you Isaac and are so proud of you!

Welcome to Our Crazy World!

Last weekend my little sister Johnna and her husband Chris came to visit us from Mesa, AZ. It was a ton of fun to have them here and catch up. I'm afraid we scared the crap out of them as far as having kids goes though! They're used to a totally quiet house besides the scrappy barking of their UGLY dog. My house is pretty much constant noise with 4 boys! I'm sure they still have a noisy kid hangover headache from them. Johnna cut and colored my hair, Chris took our's and the Jeffers' family pix, we took a trip up to Estes Park which for November was unseasonably warm and Ashley came with Hannah and Cedric for an evening. I hope we didn't scare them too much!

Silas and the Single Lady

Silas was playing in the living room tonight while I was catching up on this weeks SNL when the Beyonce skit and later her performance of Single Ladies came on. I noticed his attention perked up and he was bopping to the music. He started saying some pretty funny things... "Mom, I like a girl with that color hair", "I want to dance with her.", "I can play the guitar and Single Lady can dance", "I want to marry the single lady", and "I want her now, not Maddie". (Sorry Maddie, apparently he's swayed by the glitz and glam of a famous girl). It was hilarious to see him form a little crush on Beyonce a.k.a. Single Lady! BTW, JT was freakin' funny too!

Kick Someone's Can

The boys wanted to get outside last night and play some games. It was a really nice night so we decided to play kick the can. I asked the boys if they had ever played? Both Elias and Isaac thought they knew but they didn't really remember much. Silas knew though. He said, "It's the game where you go and kick someones can." What he meant by that is kicking someone in their "can". Although that sounds like a really fun game too, I don't think the boys would have enjoyed it quite as much as kicking a regular can. We had a lot of fun running around the backyard and trying to hide from the boys. Jude even had fun. Tami bundled him up and he just wandered around in the dark while we played. It must have been a good night because no bones were broken, everyone was still on speaking terms and we all want to play again soon. Next week it is going to be capture the flag. I wonder what Silas can come up with for an explanation of that game?
