buckets, work shoes and donuts

The boys went with Grandpa to pick up trash.

 They made sure to wear their work boots and carry buckets.
Then they got to go have donuts with Grandpa. 

Sam's 7th Pacman Party

Happy birthday Sam.  Seven years have gone too fast.  I love how fast you pick things up, your goofy energy, how you still need me to hold you in thunderstorms.  You are pretty scared of dark places still and I have to talk you into doing something you have never done before.  You don't really like to try new things, love to eat salad, melt my heart when you give me hugs (because that doesn't happen very often).  Love you to the moon and back buddy!

Trying different things for a Christmas picture

Hot chocolate in these fun mugs from Travis' grandmother (Vava)

Sam's Thanksgiving outfit. His Indian name was Lightning Bolt.

Trying to be in the moment and enjoy these little guys.

Angry Eighth birthday

You are an amazing boy! You have an addictive laugh, a compassionate heart, a will not quit attitude, do everything at 100%, love to play soccer, and love chapstick!! You are a shining light in my life, little boy. I love you and am trying to cherish this time when you still need me and want to be around me. It will go too fast! Happy eighth birthday!
