Lots of Stuff

Bethany got so many clothes from friend's giving me hand-me-downs and from our baby shower, I have hardly bought her anything. But, when I saw this darling little dress at the store, I couldn't resist. Also, I tried putting it on without the onesie under it but is just wasn't modest. I know it's kind of crazy, but I had to keep the shirt on. If I didn't, my boys would probably would have called me on it and said, "Mom, that is not modest."

Doesn't she look happy? See, she like the dress just as much as I do.

Mr. Wesley playing soccer. He missed a few games this year because of his asthma, but when he did play he did really well.

Cameron reading a book (I think it is Frog and Toad Together) at Wesley's soccer game. Kind of a strange place, but I love to see my children read.

We had Wesley's end of season soccer party at Peter Piper Pizza along with every other soccer team in the league it seemed (it was crowded). This was Kent Loney's last season to coach. We had all the kids on the team sign a soccer ball and Carrie (one of the moms) got a nice box to display it in. Julie (another mom) made amazing scrapbooks for the coaches. Julie also made soccer pillowcases with a picture of the team on them and had each of the players sign them as well. They were very impressive! If any of you want to purchase some for your children's team let me know and I will give you her information.

And of course, the highlight for Wesley (besides playing all the video games) getting his trophy.

Carter is really becoming a popular guy with two birthday parties in one day. First, he went to a "Space" party for Michael Fluckiger (a little boy in his Sunbeam class at church). They each got "jet packs" (made by Michael's mom Sarah) and got in the "space shuttle" (also made my Sarah) ready for blast off. They were watching a video of when the space shuttle first blasted off and they were all so excited.

Notice Carter's rocket ship shirt. That was supposed to be Michael's b-day present, but Carter just had to put it on. He told us, "I can share it with Michael. I will wear it one day and then give it to Michael the next day." Good idea Carter, but we decided to go back to the store to get Michael his own shirt instead.

They flew to the "moon" and had to collect "moon rocks" and put them in their "jet packs." The moon rocks were little toys and candy wrapped up in balls of tin foil.

Then he went to Isabelle Embry's party at Main Event to go bowling. Isabelle is in Carter's preschool as well as in his Sunbeam class at church. Carter helped me pick out Isabelle's present. It was between a dress and some jammies. He couldn't decide and actually had a break down in the store because he wanted to give her both. We finally decided on the jammies. I'm glad he is not a girl, the drama would probably be worse. This is Carter after throwing (well I should say, slowly pushing) his bowling ball down the lane. He was actually really good!

More of Miss Bethany whether you like it or not!

Yes, Mama and Bethany like to stick out our tongues at each other.

Bethany with Gram and her famous hat.

Sarah got home from BYU. We are all so happy to have her back in Texas as you can tell by Cameron's big grin.

And...our dear, dear friends the Putnams moved to Houston today. We are happy for them since they have a great job, a beautiful house in a wonderful location with exemplary schools, but we will miss them so much. They lived around the corner from us and we either saw each other or talked almost every day. We are especially sad for Erik and Carter because they are bestest friends. They just love each other and play so well. The Putnams spent almost every day this week at our house because their house was being packed and the new family moved in. It was so fun to have them here this week. We wish them the best in their new adventure and look forward to visiting them later this month in their new house.
