Kicking and Screaming

This past weekend Sophie had her first soccer tournament down in Phoenix. If you can guess by the title, Sophie was kicking and I was screaming. We didn't win any games, but they didn't give up and that is all that counts. (RIGHT) I'm really proud of Sophie, her coaches think she has the potential to be a really good goalie. I beg to differ, that position scares me especially when you have a whole team trying to get to you!!! Even though it scares me, she had some really great blocks and I'm super proud of her giving it her all. GO UNITED 99!!! #7 is the BEST!!!

I have more ACTION pictures, I just need to get them from Megan!!!

Our New President

This past Tuesday, I took the opportunity to VOTE. I believe that this election was very critical to our Nation. Although the guy who won is not who I voted for, I was very moved and impressed by his speech. I will pray for him and hope that he leads our Nation in the right way as we head into these tumultous times.

On the lighter side, Fred and I watched SNL alot to keep us laughing throughout this election. This video is of SNL's Amy Poehler doing the Palin Rap, I can't get enough of it. ENJOY!!!!


I am taking a 9 week course at NAU called FYE 101(yes it's a requirement) that helps you acclimate to school as a Freshman, we have to complete 4 passports in certain areas and one of them was to get involved in the community. They have an event here in Flagstaff called the First Friday Art Walk and I read the Wienermobile was coming to town and participate in the Art Walk. So I called our friends, the Beans, and we met up and took a tour of the Wienermobile. The kids kept yelling "Yeah we get to go and ride in the BIG WIENER!" I think my kids just like to say the word, wiener. I guess I do to because I've mentioned it a few times already. wiener, wiener, wiener... Anyways, we bundled up and headed out and after we experienced the "Wiener"mobile, we went and got crepes for everybody!! They were scrumdelicious!! Once again I give credit to Stacie for taking the pictures!! Thank you for hanging out with us!!!

I have been so crazy lately with school so I haven't been able to blog, but I have an extra hour so I thought I would catch up!!!

Trunk or Treat!! We had a great time on Thurs. Our church held it inside even though it wasn't that cold outside. Sean--pirate, Sydney--Hannah Montana, Sophie--Baby, Sarah--Theodore(from Alvin and the Chipmunks).

On Halloween I always try to do something fun for dinner so this year we had the Pumpkin Pizza from Papa Murphy's. Love the just throw in the oven and it's ready dinner!

Our Pumpkin Pizza (TASTY!!!)

Sean decides he doesn't want to be a pirate anymore, so he decides he wants to be Spiderman! (Whatever!) Stacie and the girls came over and we went Trick or Treating for about 2 hours. I can't believe they lasted that long, the weather was nice, but we had to climb some hills!!!

Spidey in Action!!!
