Jake had his 2nd soccer game yesterday! Jake loves soccer! SCORE 3-0 (Jake made all 3 goals!)Have I mentioned Jake LOVES sports and is very good at them?

On his way to the first goal!

Taking a small break after 2 goals and a lot of sweat! (and Millie's cute behind!)

Did I mention that my handsome hubby is the coach??!!
The boy is in the background... But this photo is all about the girl!!

Happy birthday Thompson!

Brad's daddy had his 64th birthday on Sunday. Here are a few photo's of the birthday fun!
Different toys at grandma and grandpa's house!
Carter.... And silly Brad of course!
Lily and Millie. Cousins born on the same day exactly one year apart. Lily was interested in hugs and kisses while Millie was interested in having a sip of lily's juice!
I see the ball, I want the ball!
YES... I got the ball!!
And I am excited about the ball!!!


We went to the Dew Tour this past weekend with some of our friends. we all had lots of fun watching all of the sports, skateboarding, motocross, and bmx bikes! Jake even got to meet one of the champions!


The boys and Brad went to the father/son camp out last weekend and had a blast! They got there late Friday and returned early Saturday morning....Not a long camp out, but a fun one for sure!

My sassy little Jake!

I have started taking minutes off of Jake's bedtime for not listening, being sassy, not respectful, etc.

Really it is the only thing that is working for us at this point in time. He has this funny obsession with asking what time it is and how many minutes till bedtime. He wants to get every second possible before it's time to go to sleep.

So a few days ago he started being a little "sassy" with me, so I went over to a little board I have hanging on the fridge and wrote "Jake's normal bedtime, 8:30.... -10 min for being sassy." To make a long story short I never actually followed through for one reason or another and this is what I found the next day... it says "momy you nevr hade me go to bed at 8:20." Brad and I got a very good laugh out of it. Oh Jake, you keep us on our toes, I will be sure to follow through next time!


Millie was crying in a weird way today after I laid her down, I went in to check on her and this is what I found!
She was very proud of herself after I said, "what do you think you're doing?"
What am I in for??

I put Millie for her morning nap and a few minutes later she was crying. Usually if she cries then she will not go to sleep. So I went to get her and this is what I found..........
She had pulled herself up on the crib and was looking over the edge like, hmmm how do I get out of this thing?? :)
Oh boy.... She is already a handful, I do wonder when she will walk if she keeps going at this rate?? Does this seem a little early to anyone else? I don't remember Jake doing this so soon?
