Quick Quarantine our House

So, for the last 2 weeks somebody has been sick at our house. Funny thing is we've all had something different. Molly had the stomach flu, I got a really bad cold, Tyler got a fever and Rash... (well, he still has it) So I'm just waiting to see what Ellee gets. This should be good. Poor Tyler....

Wow, Playing Catch up......

Us girls took a little trip down to LA for the filming of 2 Dr. Phil shows. We had a blast. Going to the shows, shopping at the mall and laughing til our cheeks hurt. So much fun.
Went out to eat with a few friends from the gym. Fun times were had by all!! 

Football, Football, and more Football. Tyler is doing his best out there. They haven't won one yet, but I'm sure they'll get there. Go Jaguars!!
And a lot of dinners with the Whitmore Family. It is so much fun to get together with close friends.

Are you ready for some football??..........

This year Tyler is playing football instead of soccer. I was a little worried with his size, but he is doing great. He's playing first string both ways. On offense he's playing tight end and loving the position. Saturday they had their first game. Ty was very excited when he caught a pass and ran it  for 20 yards for a touchdown. Go Tyler. We have a great group of kids. Go Jaguars!!!

My good friend Priscilla was turning 30 this last Friday, so her husband decided to throw her a surprise Birthday Party. I was glad to be able to help plan the party. We had it at our club house, and it turned out great. She was so surprised she cried. The party was so much fun!!

Good Golly Miss Molly...

Molly is such a crazy girl. She has NO FEAR. She keeps begging for us to put her in gymnastics. She is constantly doing push ups, sit ups and jumping jacks. Her new favorite thing is to do hand stands. She's getting really good! I guess this would be about the time to start her, so we'll see.

Oh yes it's ladies night.....

Actually I got two really fun ladies nights out this week. A group of friends and I went out to dinner, saw Mamma Mia and got cold stone! What could get better than that. Then on Friday night Breaking Dawn (the last book in the Twilight series) came out, so we headed down to Borders and waited until Mid-night to get a copy. I've pretty much done nothing but read the book since then. It was Fabulous!! I Loved it!! What a great week!! The worst thing this week though was when we asked some of the young women in our ward to take a picture of us with our books. Thinking we were so cool until the girl taking the picture said, " Say TWILIGHT MOM"S!" How depressing. When did I get so old??

Our Crazy Fast Weekend.....

This last weekend Mark had a couple days off, so we decided to take drive up to Chico to visit our good friends. We had a super fun time! We went to Outback, (which was one of my highlights) saw Batman, went running in the park, Mark and Todd went golfing (of course), we swam, and had a campfire at Caper Acres park. We always have a fun time with the Lewis Family no matter how short the visit. We left the Lewis establishment on Sunday morning and headed down to ELK Grove. We stopped off at the Crandall's , for a yummy BBQ and everything tasted Fabulous!! We then headed over to my sisters for cake and ice cream for my nephews birthday. It was a crazy fast weekend with lots of fun stuff shoved into a few days, but very well worth the trip!!

Amber and Molly making the traditional homemade pizza!! Amber was so good to let Molly help her make dinner.

Road Trip to Chico. It was a long car drive but the kids were still somewhat happy!!

On our way back through Elk Grove, we stopped for my TWO nephews birthday parties. It was great to see all my family. Picture above: Megan and Meggin

I don't think Maryn was very happy that I took her picture.
