Pick a costume already...

G has been into halloween costumes this year. We have acquired many costumes through the years. G has chnaged his mind every day regarding what he is going to be for Halloween. The other night we had a trunk or treat at church. He dressed up as a Frog. Last Friday he had a party at preschool and decided to go as an elephant. I guess we will wait and see what he finally ends up being for Halloween.

Big League Soccer

F's soccer coach is a professor at Radford University. As a celebration for the end of season, he lined up an awesome opportunity for them. The other Saturday night, F's team was able to play a scrimmage against another Rec League team during half time of teh Radford University's womens soccer game. F has loved soccer over the years. As he gets older, it looks like his speed and agility may be improving. He has been able to make some great friends on his teams through the years. Maybe one day, he will actualy play at the college level.

Playing as the goalie! The Rec League goals are much bigger by the way:)

Baby SoySoy

S just keeps growing bigger and bigger everyday. I have given him the nickname of baby SoySoy. This drives Jaime and F totaly crazy. I probably keep calling him that just to drive them crazy. He has finally cut 4 teeth. The 2nd top front tooth has finally come through. He has been having trouble sleeping at night and seems often cranky. Now that he has cut his first four teeth, we were excited that he would not be in pain any more. However, today we ave noticed that he is still drooling like crazy. Looks like more teeth are on the way!

The big day!

My baby has grown up and was baptized. He is such an amazing boy. He truly understands what it is like to live a Christlike life. What an honor it is to have a son that teaches me how to be a better person. F's baptism day was absolutely amazing. It was great to have mom and dad here in town for the event. Our great friends, Jon and Stephanie Dubyk surprised us with a visit from North Carolina. I performed the baptism and dad confirmed F. The water in the font was icy cold! F literally gasped when he came up out of the water. When F was confirmed and received the gift of the Holy Ghost, I had an overwhelming sense of his impending greatness. He will definitely go on to be such a great man and bring to pass a life of righteousness. After the baptism, we all headed back to our house and had an awesome brunch.
We bought G a new suit at TJ Maxx. It was on clearance after Easter, We picked it up for 18 bucks. He got to debut it for the baptism. He wanted some action shots taken in his new suit.
Our family before the big event.
