My Sweet Valentines

This year for Valentines Day... my nephew Jaxon called and let us know that we could have the best HEART shaped pizza from Papa Murphy's. So we did (thanks Jax). They all loved the shape and it actually tasted really good.
When the kids woke up on Sunday morning, I had them a stuffed animal, candy and a special card for each of them on their beds. They LOVE them. It is Wednesday and they still carry them around and sleep with them every night. I am glad that they can feel how much I love them when they hug their bears/tiger. B named her bear, Timaree LOL, Keegan's tiger is Chester and I think (not positive) Morgan's is Michelle (from Full House)

Happy Valentines Day to you 3. I am so blessed to have such wonderful people to share this special day with. I am proud of each of you and I want you to know, how special I felt to have been woken up to you saying..."I love you Mom, you are my Valentine".

Go Strikers FC

Morgan had her first Competitive Soccer tournament this weekend. This is her and her friend Abi. Abi came with to cheer her on. :) :)

Morgan and her biggest fans. We were all really excited (even though Keeg doesn't look it), to watch her play again.

Stretchin......She is #17. She got this from her favorite softball pitchers...#7 Hillary (ASU) and #10 Katie (ASU-World Champion 2008)....together = 17. Kinda funny that she picked softball pitcher's #s for her soccer # LOL

Look at her go!!!!!

I love to see her happy :)
Yup, that's right...captain. Her and Shelby, we won the toss.

I love that they are learning sportsmanship. They all have to take a knee when a player is hurt and remain there until they are off the field. This is not a new thing in sports, but it is for a young division. I am very glad about that.

So in the end...they did not win any of their 3 games...BUT, they played well and learned a lot. They had only 4 practices before the tourney because of all the rain we have had. So I really think they did good. At the end of this month their regular season will start and then they will have another tournament...Utah Summer Games. I am glad that out of the 3 teams that asked her to play, she chose Coach Pascal, who is French (Morg really likes that cause "they know a lot more about soccer there" LOL). He is great and is really determined to teach them the game and not just win (although, he wants that too haha).

B Takes Dance :)

So as if we didn't have enough going on in our lives LOL...Breckyn started dance class. This was her first day. Can you tell she is excited?
This is her "pose". Thanks again, Aunt Chey and Mags :) She is tooooo cute!!!

These are her friends that she "car poles" with :)
Makena, Dotti, Sophie, Sidney and Breckyn
They are all in our ward. It makes it nice because I only have to drive every 5 weeks (yeah me!)
As you can see, they have to wear pink (glad the girls gave B all of it for her Bday back in July). At the end, they will get new outfits and have a recital :) She absolutely loves it and she learned "The Swan"??? she showed me her "moves" and said that the teacher told her she did it "just right". Too funny. I'll record her sometime and post it. I have to say, I never thought of my Breckyn liking dance and wanting to be a cheerleader...that's right, you heard me. But it's all good. As long as my kids are happy...I'm happy. And as you can see.....she is happy!!!!

CHILE....Here Comes Sister Nikolaus



This is the video I took of Chey opening her call. I have never been good at shooting action footage....and it shows here LOL. I am sure you figured out that, Cheyanne will be entering the MTC on April 14, 2010, to begin her mission to be served in Santiago East, Chile (Spanish speaking)

I am so proud of her. A year ago, she would have never even thought of taking this on. But since being home from Honduras and missing the service she was able to give....she changed her mind. They will be so happy and blessed to have her there.

My kids are all very excited for her. They haven't come to terms with the "gone for 18 months" thing yet. That will be hard but it will be something we will face when it arises.

Here are some pictures of the "Call Opening" night :) :)

Chey...holding her call

Chey and our proud Mom (after the tears)

Shauna, Chey & Dad (also very proud)

Chey pointing to her Mission...Elder Nikolaus is serving above in Mexico City South. AND by the way...I guessed where she was going. That's right, I'm the WINNER LOL

Ok, this is actually the night before...but I love this picture of Chey and Tinkerbell. It was definitely a Kodak moment :) :)
