Saturday evening the we took the kids to Skate Whirl! We got Hayden skates for his birthday so he has been begging Amber to take him. After our experience at the Plex on NYE, we decided to go back to old faithful for some fun! Once we got there, they warned us about the big kids and to be careful with our little ones. To our surprise, they cleared out the birthday party area just for us so it was like we had our own private skate rink! We had so much fun and really enjoyed not having to worry about the kids getting pummeled by the bigger kids. Thank you so much Skate Whirl for really making our night a super enjoyable one!
Baeleigh, Hunter, Hayden and Kel
Yo, Yo...check out my new skates! Kelby did soooo good this time. She is really getting the hang of it now!
Baeleigh had never skated before but by the end of the evening she was doing much better
H Moffia regulating the skating rink
Baeleigh skating on her own even if she was holding on to the wall!
BTW...Hayden told me that he wanted to skate with me because I was the "fastest!" Ca Ca Ca...I'm glad he likes his new skates and that the kids had so much fun!
Here is a video of Kel (ignore my voice as I thought it was too loud for the camera to actually hear me!)
Saturday afternoon, we went out to the complex to watch Kaila play a little soccer! The kids were cracking me up because when Kaila was on the field they were yelling at her and did not stop until she acknowledged them! I hope she learned her lesson - just wave and they will be quite!!
On Saturday, Madison turned 1! They had a party for her at Grandpa's house and the kids had lots of fun eating cake and playing with her.
She had fun with her little cake!

When a project is selected, our Opportunity Knocks program provides the following: -Financial assistance up to $1500 -League volunteers to work with the organization for a short term to be agreed upon by the Junior League and the organization
We had so much fun and were glad they let us come help!

While Isaiah was in town, we gathered all of the kids up, dressed them alike, (thanks Children's Place) fixed their hair, and then took them all down to the park for some cute cousins pictures. They all did so good and these pictures are priceless memories!
First...here is the last group picture we did in 2007!
We have had a few more additions since then!
This one cracks me up because Kolby was not liking having to hold still and sit there so we told Hunter to keep him in line for the pictures. He is just smiling away but holding on the Kolby like we told him to!
The whole gang!
The original kids! Sure do miss Jonathan in this pic :(

Isaiah was telling Jeremy to take care of himself...he just loves him so much! "Hey Isaiah"
