So the All Star baseball season is over. We really had a great team. The season didn't end that well for us which was a huge bummer. It is definitely bitter sweet. Wade has been coaching and so it has taken up a ton of time and they have been playing every weekend for the past month or two plus all the practices. It was a great group of kids. Porter is good friends with all the boys on our team. I think Wade did a really good job coaching. I really don't think he gets the credit he deserves but I think you truly cannot make everyone happy. It is impossible!!! Wade had two awesome assistant coaches, Wade Oakden and Shawn Griffiths. They all did a great job and had a lot of fun! Wades not sure though if he will ever do it again! (but I think he probably will).
Crayton was the bat boy for the team. He did a great job and was continually faithful in doing his job. He had the same full uniform and everything. He was awesome. He was able to practice with the boys and he is actually pretty good. He loves baseball!

Rex and Elsie just pretty much caused havoc wherever they were. Just kidding, they were pretty good and they loved their Beaver shirts. They have their names on the back and Porters number. Rex also had to wear his cleats to every game. It was fun!
My little Porter is a pretty good athlete. I love him to death and I am really going to miss watching him play ball. But there is always next season. It took up a lot of our time but it was fun family time. The kids loved going to practice and games.We were always together in our Beaver Blue. To bad I didn't get a picture of me in my Beaver Blue!

Every other year, my family goes to the beach for a week. Newport Beach to be exact, we rent one big beach house. 12 Bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, and 33 people! It is crazy but so fun!! It is a vacation I look forward!

This is my mom and I. She is really the mastermind of the whole vacation. She is amazing and we all love her so much. I am so thankful for all she does for our family!
This here is ChaMama (AKA Chanda)! She is Wades sister!
We love her to come with us (not only because she helps with the kids) but
because she is truly fun to be around. We love her!

On one of the days, we went to LEGOLAND. It was fun be really busy.

We celebrated Rexton, Boston, and Alanas birthdays while we were in there.
I love the beach and am so sad our trip has already come and gone. It is so much fun being with my family and letting all the kids play. We truly make some amazing memories.

I'm BACK!!!!

YES, I Am Back and have decided to start blogging again. I have looked back at all the things I have posted about and this is a must if I am going to have anything remotely close to a journal or scrapbook. This is the best way!!! Since the beginning of the year a ton, of course, has happened but I believe it to be impossible to try and blog it all. But every now and then I might post something from a while back just for my sake!!

This year,
Porter turned 9

Elsie turned 2

Rexton turned 4

And Crayton will turn 7 in August

Here is a picture of the kids around Easter I can't believe how fast they have grown and how quickly time flies by. Things are always crazy and hectic and sometimes I want to pull my hair out but how couldn't you love these darling litte faces!!!

Apparently, there is a Trash robber on the loose. Wade and I woke up this morning to find our entire trash can (full of trash) missing. Gone!! Nowhere to be seen. Anyway this is how it went down. Last night at about 11:00 p.m. Wade put out the trash for pick up the next morning. Then we slept! Then, Wade left for work this morning and then comes back in the house and says, Where is our trash can? I am like What do you mean our trash can? He says, Our trash, its gone. I'm like you are kidding me! W-Nope its gone. A- It can't be. You mean someone stole our trash. He is like yeah and they stole the canister. CRAZY!! So immediately I panic thinking Why does someone want our trash and the trash can! Luckily I save pretty much every bill, bank statement, etc. I really can't think of anything they could possible get except a whole bunch of poopie diapers and who knows what other disgusting items. But it is still pretty disturbing to think that someone might be going through our trash. If they wanted to still our identity, why wouldn't they just reach in and take the bags out without us knowing, why the whole canister? I mean now I know they have our trash and I will be monitoring everything like crazy so if that was the reason, they are really idiots. Maybe its some crazy drug addict and they are thinking maybe Wade threw out a prescription pad or something I don't know but very DISTURBING! Take note, I did notify the proper authorities and a nice lady deputy came up and filed a report about our missing trash and trash can! So beware, a robber is on the loose!!!!:)
P.S. The trash can is big and black and full of trash, please let us know if you find it or know any information regarding its whereabouts. There may be a small reward. Thank You!
