Jace is nine!

Happy Birthday Jace! I'm a few days behind, his birthday was actually on the 27th but I still wanted to journal it down. Chandler and I took Jace to golfland for his birthday. It was a lot of fun. We went through the haunted house. It was so scary. I haven't been to a haunted house since i was 16 and i won't go again for another 16. It was so freaky. I saw the exit door about 30 feet in front of me and i bolted as soon as i heard the chain saw! i am a wimp. Jace had fun going through it but wouldn't do it again with chandler. We then went miniature golfing. Jace was so cute with just mom and dad. His personality shined through and didn't have to compete with the other kids for attention. After golfing we raced on the go carts. Jace was mad that he wasn't tall enough to ride on his own. He ended up having fun anyways. Jace kept telling me more gas mom, brake here mom, then more gas again. Chandler got stuck in a slow car. Ha! We also went to red robin with my dad, step mom and step sister. ( i"ve never have said that before) my dad was here for a funeral and spent monday night with us. Jace is my oldest son and i love him so very much. He is such a crazy, brave, smart, daring, and funny kid. He has always kept me on my toes, those of you who know him you know all of the crazy things he has done since he could walk at nine months. He was my largest baby at 7 pounds 13 ounces, now he is a rail! but strong. I need to plan a birthday party for him still. it is always crazy to get all his friends together around halloween time so i'm thinking monday the 8th we will have a football party. Happy Birthday Jacers Man!

Fun Stuff

I need to start blogging more often because so much has gone on and i cram it all in on one post! The kids are back into the swing of things. They are in school year round so we just finished their 2 1/2 week break. I was able to go to the SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE concert with Hayley, and our friends Janel and Sadie. It was a lot of fun ! The dancers are amazing and this is truly my favorite show. I took the kids swimming with Cambria and her kiddos. It was a hot, beautiful october day! The kids and I had a lot of fun and hey i got a tan right before winter! We took the kids to see the hohokam indian ruins. It was really cool. I thought there would be more to it but it was really neat to imagine them thriving in the middle of the Arizona desert. They lived here at the begining of the 1400's. I am feeling so much better, mentally, emotionally, and physically. I have been going to the gym six days a week and it has made me feel awesome. I lost three pounds of fat and gained 2 pounds of muscle! No wonder why the scale wasn't really budging. So i should meet my goal by the end of the year! Finally! I have been down this road a few times since i have had Parker and give up when i'm close but not this time!!!! Jace is turning nine on the 27th. What the heck! He is the star player on the flag fooball team . He scored 3 touchdowns and an extra point! He loves it!
He is riding again. His doctor gave us the green light on riding his dirt bike again. He is getting more confident with every practice. Carter is riding like a pro. Hayley chopped her hair and donated it to locks of love! She loves her new haircut but misses her long hair too. Parker is driving me crazy! He has been using the potty since July and has been popping and peeing in his under wear for a month now! I know you shouldn't put them back in pullups but i did yesterday. I've had it! He is actually taking them off to go potty on the toilet and when he has an accident i' m not as mad since i don't have as much laundry to do.. so that's whats up in the pearce household!
