1st Day of School!!

My cute little Gavin is now in Kindergarten!  He had his first day of school today and loved it.  He goes to my school, Westfield Elementary. He goes while I work in the afternoon, so it is perfect.  He does get to hang out in my room for a little bit and he had so much fun being with the big 1st graders!

My little soccer player!

 Gavin had his first soccer game on Saturday and he LOVED it.  I loved watching his cute face as he was running on the field.  The whole time he had a huge smile on it.  He kept telling us later that day, "I love soccer Mom.  I had so much fun!"  He gets right out there and tries to get the ball.  You can tell he's new at the game, but with a little practice I think he'll be a pretty good soccer player!  Hopefully he has some of his dad in him in that way!

 He pretty much drowns in his clothes...

 I finally was able to get pictures of my cute little family.

SAAS Cousins

 Meet the SAAS Girls, who I know will be giving us lots of sass...

We have Sadie who is the oldest of the crew at  11 months.  She be our little miss Bossy.

Next is Avery at almost 8 months. She'll be our happy friendly girl.
 Adalyn is right behind her at 6 1/2 months.  She'll be our serious little one.

 And last comes new baby Sonja who is just one month old.  She'll be the smart little one.

 Now, we can't forget out our ring leader, Miss Bailey who all the little girls will just idolize. 

 It was very interesting trying to take these pictures!  We have one little girl (I won't name names, but her name starts with an S and ends with and adie) who is very mobile and trying to get her to sit still was fun....but I did get a few! 

 And here are some more of baby Sonja for your viewing pleasure...

Sunday best

 Adalyn looked so darling dressed up today for church I couldn't resist taking a few pictures.

Sadie's almost 1!

 Here is my cute niece Sadie.  She is almost 1, and so my sister-in-law wanted me to get some pictures for her.  Sadie was a little serious, but we did get a few smiles out of her...

6 month old Addie!

 Our sweet little Adalyn is 6 months old!  I am so amazed she is that old already!  She is such a sweet little baby and I love seeing how in love her brothers are with her.  She loves them too.  Gavin can make her laugh the hardest I have ever heard her laugh.

At 6 months Adalyn can:
-Sit up (finally!)
-Roll all over
-Eat rice cereal and loves it
-Sounds like a bird squawking when she is sad
-Sounds like a cat purring when she is happy
-Puts everything in her mouth
-Sleeps about 8 hours a night
-Takes 3 naps a day, about 1-2 hours long
-Loves to snuggle on my shoulder to fall asleep
-12 lbs 15 oz
-25.7 inches long

We love our sweet Adalyn!

Getting Ready

 The summer is almost done, and that means it is time to get back into school!  Gavin is excited/nervous about going into Kindergarten.  Luckily is classroom is literally right next door to mine, so I think that has eased some of his nervousness.  I just got some bookshelves to put in the boys' room and they have been "reading" a lot more.  I love hearing Gavin tell the stories in his own words.

 Adalyn started solids for the first time and LOVED it.  Earlier that evening we were watching a movie and eating popcorn and she kept trying to get the popcorn, and that was when I knew we had to get the cereal out and see how she would like it.  I don't think Gavin or Kyson were as messy as she was.  She kept trying to do it her self and hold the spoon.  She loved it!

Wolf Creek

 We went up Ogden Canyon this last week and stayed at Wolf Creek.  We had a great time and it was great to get away for a little bit before school begins.  We started off the week with my parents.  We went in to Ogden and visited the Children's Museum.  The kids had fun wherever they went!

 Cute little Adalyn just sat in her stroller so good
 At the condo the kids just loved spending time with their cousins
 Playing Little Big Planet
 Miss Avery learned how to crawl on this trip
 On Wednesday Casey and Doug came up to finish the week with us.  It was so nice to have the husbands with us!  We did the same things every day...

Wake up, eat breakfast, go swimming at the big pool...

Then hang out at the hot tub...

 Then we would go back, eat lunch, take naps or watch the Olympics and then head back for more swimming and hot tubing...

I loved ending the nights by putting the kids to bed and hanging out watching the Olympics.

Thanks mom and dad for letting us kick you out of your room, your TV and being around our crazy loud kids.  We had a great time!
