Max's Birthday Week

Love this kid! Max turned 9!! I can't believe I have a 9 year old. .. Right? What? Did I really just write that my babes turned 9!! I did. He is such a good boy. I heart just about everything about him. He is good natured. Little Max, Maxy Doodle, smelly cat... whatever we call him.. he is pretty amazing. Max is the one who takes care of others. He is a great example of how to love. How to live. And how to have a good time. That elephant remembers everything!! He just so happens to bring "funnies" up at the most opportune times. He is a great kid to have around! He is TO. DIE. FOR!

We started his birthday celebrations with a "Minute-to-win-it" themed birthday party the weekend before. It was wild. Crazy. And definitely an all boy celebrations. Good times for sure.

At the Watson house we start our "birthday day" out with the perfect breakfast {Max's choice}. Max's choice was our new "go to" pancakes... with Strawberries.. syrup.. whip cream and.. AND.. you can't forget the candles!! YUM!!

A birthday wouldn't be a birthday without a special trip to their classroom. Lola and I got to go to Max's 4th grade class and share ice cream. It couldn't be just any ice cream but Max requested Creamies. The boy knows what he likes!

This is me on Max's birthday.. "Max, what kind of cake would you like?" "Do you want to go to dinner?" "Do you want to go swimming?" "Trafalga?" "Anything?" Well.. this boy decided that he wanted to play night games with his best buddies and roast smores. Love it! Easiest.. most fun .. birthday day ever!!

Birthdays are a lot of work!! So worth it!! Love this kid to pieces. He's my babe!

Karate Update

Jacqualynn is really doing well in Karate. It is so fun to watch her in action. She is so determined to do well. So determined to do everything PERFECT! Jacq's perfectionist side really shines through in karate. When she is practicing her forms it looks like a combination of karate and dancing. She is determined yet graceful. These are pictures of her second belt test. She is pretty excited about that. Yeah Jacq. Keep up the good work!

I wish I took more and more and more pictures! I always think that. I am getting to be a way lazy lady at documenting our adventures. Auntie came to town for a visit! It was a party!! It always is!! We headed to the canyon for a campfire dinner/smores. What a fun time!! Seriously love going to the canyon.. even in the rain! We love visitors at this house. The more the merrier. Come visit us any time. Our weekend with Auntie was full of adventure. Too bad my camera died! :( BOO! More pictures of our awesome time.. NEXT TIME!

Where does this girl come from? Seriously! I just about died when Jacq's school work started coming home like this. She is a very special girl. Only Jacq would take the time to make her name a piece of artwork. {Love her}

Fall Soccer

I love watching these boys play soccer. I'll have to admit that this has not always been the case. In fact, we took a couple years off. When we first started playing instead of playing soccer my boys were picking flowers ... laying down in the grass during game time and it became evident that the end of games treats are what kept them coming back. I waited patiently for these boys to decide that they wanted to be apart of a team. I decided that it had to be "their idea." Sure enough this was the year. All three boys did their best. They practiced hard. They played harder. Awesome defense. Great offense. Scored some goals. They all had a great first half of their season. GO TEAM WATSON!!
