Jace's Birthday!

I can't believe Jace is 11 years old. This cutie pie warms my heart. I sure love watching him in everything he does. From mma, racing dirt bikes, and his love of football. Football is his life right now and is so deticated to getting enough sleep for his games to eating right. I can't believe the self decipline he has only being 11.
He is a great player playing offense and defense most of the game. Tonight we had his birthday party. It looked like he had a lot of fun. His friends came over for pizza and played in the back until we loaded them up and went to jump street.
It was craziness there but they all had fun. I made Jace a football cake with his jersey number on it. #5!
He got some great gifts. What a great night. Jace has his first playoff game at 8am tomorrow which means he has to wake up at 6:15am. boo to early games! I sure do love my freckle face boy.

Parker is 5!!!

How can my baby be 5 already! I'm still in denial. He had the best birthday party ever! We rented a huge blow up water slide for his party. Parker had so much fun going down it. Between the water slide, our pool and two trampolines all the kiddos had a great time.

Carter's Baptism

What a special day! I get so emotional during baptisms. Carter was so excited. He was so funny. When I was driving he was asking me questions about his baptism day. One of them was "Mom can dad dip me two times"? I bought him a new suit and he looked so handsome.
The kids were all so excited for Carter's big day!

Not the greatest pic of me but it's Carter's day. I can't believe that 3 of our kids have been bapitized and only one to go:) I sure do love my family and I'm so thankful for all my family and friends that came to Carter's baptism.

Happy Birthday Carter!

When did this happen?? my sweet boy Carter is now eight years old. Time is flying by and I don't like it at all! We went to Red Robin for his birthday dinner. It is our favorite place eat out as a family.
Carter wanted to have a bowling party. He has sooo much fun. He always had a smile on his face. He is usually shy but was up front dancing the cha cha slide. So was Parker.

I'm a worn out mama!

The past 6 weeks have been some of the hardest weeks of my life..and fun! I definetly signed up the kids for too many acivities. I'm soooo ready for May to be over!! This is what we've been up to. I was able to go on a fieldtrip with Carter to the Maricopa County fair. It was a lot of fun spending that time with him and he thought it was really cool to have his mom there. Yes i've gained weight.. but a good friend told me that I need to take pics anyways. The kids really liked the rockets. Jace has loved playing tackle but he is on the worst team ever. It's the coach. He is horrible! But he is having fun anyways. At three practices a week i'm ready for it to be over but we still have 5 weeks. Hayley is still dancing. She takes hip hop, hip hop company, jazz and clogging. It has been way too much for me. She also got pick to represent Dance Element at Starbound dance Comp which meant more practices. and she has extra practices for the recital. I love watching her dance but i'm so ready for it to be over. Heck i'm ready to do nothing but swim all day with the kiddos. Anyways her dance trio took 2nd place and so did her dance group. i will post videos later. My girl Hayley.
The kids last day of school is June 2nd. Hooray!! I can't wait!!! I will make it through the month of May! I will I will!!

Things that can go.

This is what Parker's preschool field trip was about. He was able to bring his bike. He rode it everywhere!! He had so much fun with his friends. Parker really likes going to preschool and he is learning so much stuff.

Character Counts

Carter recieved an award for Character Counts. Resonsibility. He was very proud of it and he should be. Only two kids per class, per quarter recieve it. He is such a good student. Mrs. Willman really enjoys having him in class. He is missing his two front teeth. What a cutie. Way to go Carter!

the day that never ends....

Today has been one of the longest days ever..... Have been going none stop since I woke up this morning. I went to the gym today. Stretched out in the sauna then 30min on the eliptical. I just kept staring at the cycle door. A class was going on and I miss it. It is the best feeling ever when you complete that class. It's hardcore and I haven't had such a feeling of accomplishment as far as an excercise class goes. I'm jealous when I see everyone walk out sweating like crazy, smiling and talking. I will try it soon. My muffin top went away finally with that class and my muffin top is back! And that is not a good thing.
Emotional day for me. I really need to figure somethings out. I really need to read my scriptures and some uplifting books on self esteem. I really lack it even though maybe I put up a front that I have it all together to most people that know me. Wish I did but I don't.
I should send my mom a card.Even though we haven't talked in a lonnggg time I can tell her hi and that I do love and miss her.
Today was the first day of back to back soccer/football practice and I'm exhausted. I let Hayley go to the movies with a friend alone today. The first time I have ever done this. Then they did a little shopping. She had fun. I took the boys to lunch. It was fun. They were really good. Went home cleaned up my living room, dining room and kitchen and washed a load of laundry. Got the boys ready for practice. Picked Hayley and her friend up and went to soccer practice. Parker did really good. The parents helped out a lot today which I really enjoyed doing. We kicked the ball back and forth and he practiced kickind and stopping the ball. They also practiced making goals. I'm really enjoying my baby boy. If I had younger kids right now I wouldn't be able to spend this time with him. I would be chasing a 2 year old around. They straight to Jace's practice. It took me 25 min to get there. I'm going to try a different route tomorrow. Jace's coaches really like him. They are excited about how fast he can run and how he catches everything! He is also really good at throwing the ball. Even though it's really busy for me, trying to juggle a lot of things at a time. I'm glad we are out of the house. I will have to start packing a dinner or we will be eating out every night. and I don't want to do that. Maybe a lot of subway. Please Heavenly Father, give me the energy I need to take care of my family. I need it!

a CrAzY mama!!

So the time has come. Jace, Carter and Parker will all be playing a sport this spring. Carter and Parker start this week and Jace starts next week. Jace is playing tackle football, Carter is playing flag football and Parker is playing soccer. They are all very excited. So far the practices are on the days that are good for me. Haven't heard from Jace's coach yet. Jace's schedule will be the busiest. He will have three practices a week for the first few weeks then twice a week after that. I rather be busy and enjoying life with my kiddos. I find so much joy through them.
So yesterday while Hayley was at dance class the boys and I went and bought some fruit/vegtable plants and seeds. We have a place for a small garden. I've wanted to a garden for a long time now and we are excited about it! It's teeny tiny but its a start! I'm so excited!! I haven't been able to workout like I use to. It's been about four months since I've been able to go Monday-Satuday. I miss it and it has caused me some depression. My back is finally feeling better. Seeing the right doctor is amazing at the results I'm now getting. Went to the wrong one for a year now. So my SIL Lacy has been doing these workout dvd's and is getting great results and feeling good!
Since I can't take my favorite classes at the gym I'm going to give them a try. Hayley is going to do it with me. It's going to be fun!

Merry Christmas!

Can't believe Christmas has come and gone so fast! We were super excited about the kids opening their gifts this year. Hayley wanted Vans and a prepaid credit card.
Jace a Fitzgerald Cardinal Jersey. Carter wanted legos and guitar hero game for his nintendo ds. He is so easy to please. Parker is happy with anything. He did get one thomas train but his favorite was his big wheels from Santa.
I really did a bad job at taking pics. Parker dropped my camera on the lens and broke it. So we have been using Chandlers which is ancient. I can tell I'm not taking as many pics which isn't a good thing. I'm so proud of myself for not stressing out this Christmas day. Well I did a little. It was my turn for the Pearce family Christmas dinner. I think it went well. We decided to have Mexican food instead of the usual ham and cheesy potatoes. Everything was soo yummy. Should of took a picture! We hung out and played games. I'm really glad it's over though and I'm ready for the new year.
I sure do love my family and I'm so thankful for a wonderful husband and how hard he works for our family. I really am excited for 2010!
