It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!

A quick visit from Uncle Bryan! We miss him and Kelli so much!
I know it's early, but we are leaving to Hawaii on Friday and won't be back until the end of the month so I had to get an early jump on things and decorate the kids room.
Crew LOVES the train and is actually really good about not knocking it off the track!

Keeping Up With The Boys

We had a busy and fun weekend as usual. Friday night Chase had a soccer game (they lost). Saturday Chase had another game (they won - Chase had 7 goals - he was on fire!) and Caden had a game (they lost but Caden scored one of the 2 goals). Saturday night we had a box for the Jazz-Warriors game with the Taylors. It was so much fun, even though the Warriors lost. They kids loved the game and LOVED getting food and drinks whenever they wanted. Not to sound spoiled, but a box is the ONLY way to see the game if you are bringing 6 kids! We had our own bathroom, kitchen and plenty of seating. Bryan and Kelli - where were you?! Stinkers still in NYC! Then Sunday I played soccer with my boys (I have a huge bruise on my calf trying to teach them how to NOT be afraid to block shots when you're a goalie) and we rocked to Guitar Hero III (my fingers feel like I have arthritis!) So an eventful and fun weekend, though my body feels a little beat up. It's hard to keep up with 3 boys - well, actually 4!

Guitar Hero III

I get the "Bad Parenting Award" for the night. I really try not to spoil my kids. I admit, holidays are a little out of control, but other than that I really try not to buy them stuff. They have a chance to earn $5 per week for chores and I am a stikler about receiving the money only if ALL their chores for the week have been done. Well, all of those wonderful teachings were out the window last night. We went to Toys R Us to kill some time while waiting for a table at Chilis. They just got a shipment of Guitar Heros and I totally succombed (spelling?) to peer pressure and bought it for them! Boston had a sleepover and they rocked out until midnight. Then I rocked out until 1:30! It is addicting and SO much fun! Boston is totally the best. He taught us all. He passed a ton of levels that I couldn't even pass. It is seriously so fun to watch him. His little fingers move so fast and he can totally keep the beat. Shannon, I think you are raising the next Eddie Veder!
