Labor Day Weekend!

We went up for the football game and we stayed up there for Labor day weekend. My brother Steve came up with his kids and we stayed in a hotel up there with my parents. We went to the Swiss Days in Midway. My mom had never been before so I wanted to take her.

We ate at a 5 buck pizza that was just behind our hotel. I was suprised how good and it was and cheap. I had never ate at one before. The kids all loved it. Brett loved it too cause they had tv's all around with football games on.

It's Game Time!!

We went up tho the Varsity game in Salem Hills, it was so pretty up there. I loved the cute valley by the mountains and it was so green. My parents went up with us and we took Corben and Brielle. Kesley and Makayla stayed with Grandma and Grandpa Gifford.

Brett is the Defensive Coordinator for Pine View. He is excited about it, he has coached for Pine View for 8 years and loves it, and has good kids he coaches.

It is so much fun to watch him calling plays down on the field. It makes the games alot more fun to watch.

He talks on the headset to another coach on the tower during the games!

Brielle does so good at the games. She likes watching the cheerleaders, annd can't wait tell the end of the game to run down and see her daddy on the field.

Mom and Dad's 40th Anniversary!

My parents had their 40th wedding anniversary. We wanted to do something fun and special for them. We rented the church and had a nice dinner catered for everyone. We suprised them! We all pitched in and got them a gift. My brother in law Paul had some oldies music playing and my parents had fun dancing. It was cute!

The kids had fun watching them dance!

After dinner we set a projector up and watched our old slides of all of us when we were younger. It was fun to have my kids see all my family when we were little! I was sad Brett couldn't be there, he was coaching a football game.

Steph brought her popcorn maker. It was like we were at the movies.

My sister Steph cutting the yummy cheesecake!

Me and Marsha did all the decorations for it. We did it all in their wedding colors, light and dark purple. They turned out so cute!

It was nice to have lots of room at the church with our big family!

First Day of School!

I can't believe it is already that time of year again, Back to school. Where did the summer go? I am excited for the new school year, the kids all have really good teachers, and I think they are going to have a fun year. They are growing up so fast! I can't believe my oldest is going to be in the 5th grade! Crazy!
