Spencer and his team, the Richland Raiders, played in the Superbowl against the Prosser Mustangs. It was a heartbreaking loss, going down by 6 points, 13-7, but the kids had such great attitudes and fought so hard, that though they lost, they ended on such a positive note. It was a tough game and things just didn't go our way. I'm sure Spencer and his teammates will be extra hungry next year though. Spence had a great year and has been fortunate to be on such a great team. His coaches are so good at teaching the kids the game and keeping it fun. He played numerous positions including receiver, safety, cornerback, backup QB, and others that unfortunately I don't even know what they're called. "Spicy Red" even played quite a bit on the line....mostly on the offense.

Rob and I enjoyed watching him play and even got a bit dressed up for the big end of the season game. Rob really got into the spirit of it all and I decided to at least paint my face. It was fun and Spencer even thought it was cool. He was impressed that Dad made his outfit and came up with the whole idea. Don't worry everyone, this is only a Superbowl thing, there will be no face paint or outfit unless one of our kids makes it to the big game! We love football and we especially love watching our boys play the game!

Birthday Time

It's crazy how time flies. Our once little "Car-Car" is all grown up.....according to him. He's NOT little anymore. He has learned so much this year. Carter's writing his name by himself, starting reading, can do a perfect cartwheel, splits, and the highest karate kick I've ever seen a 5 year old do. His enthusiasm and laugh continues to be so, so infectious. We love that toothy smile and his passion for all the little things in life. We were grateful to have a special visit from Gma and Gpa Harris and enjoyed them til our hearts' content.

I'm Smitten...

What can I say about our little Jackson? He is such an amazingly happy cutie! He has grown so fast and keeps passing milestones that I'm not quite ready for. He has been standing all on his own these last few weeks and it's only a matter of time before he starts walking! Spencer and Carter didn't even crawl til they were 10 months old, and Jackson is only 9 months! I know he wants to go and play with his older brothers, especially since they take such good care of him and I'm forever grateful for that. -sure makes my life easier!

Just look at that face! I sure love this kiddo! His red hair, blue eyes, never ending drool, and a smile that I just can't get enough of!

Gettin' so BIG!

Jackson is just about 8 months now and he has mastered so many milestones. He sits up like a pro, starting to crawl backwards, and can even push himself up to a sitting position. We are enjoying him so much! Carter and Spencer are such great big brothers and are the best of pals. I can't even imagine the day when they are all in cahoots with each other driving me up the wall with their antics and loudness, but I'm sure that it's going to be great!

For Thanksgiving we had Rob's Mom come and visit. We had a great time and Carter soon became her new best friend. They did puzzles together, played games together, toy cars, and she even gave him one of her famous word searches books. We enjoyed all her smiles and giggles and now...8 days later, we're still talking about Grandma Noni!

We have much to be thankful for!
