Playing Outside

We had a great Saturday at home the other day.  Just playing around outside at the house.  

Porter had a chance to try out his birthday present.

While Walker and Luke rode around on the snowmobile with Mike.  What do you think?  Do they look like they enjoy it or what?

Of course they had to show me the jump.

Even Chewy decided to join in on the fun!
Good times!

Cub Car Rally Numero Uno...

Only something like 11 more cars to go!

Porter took part in his first Cub Car Rally the other day.  When they were getting ready to design the car Mike asked Porter what he wanted to do and they came up with a carrot.  You read that right... a carrot.  A typical Cub Car design?  No.  Unique?  Most definitely!

And get this...

His car was fast!

I mean, like really fast!

He didn't lose a single race in his first bracket and only ended up losing two races the entire day!

It was a very successful first year and we are looking forward to many more to come.

Congratulations Porter!

Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole.... REAL.... Salt Lake!

This family is ready for Real's soccer season!

Did you catch their season opener?!?!

Real Salt Lake vs. LA Galaxy....


Woot!  Woot!!!! 

Living With Boys...

I sort of think I'm the luckiest mom in the world.  Seriously!  I love being a mom of boys... Love it!  We get to do a lot of fun things and while we mostly do things that boys enjoy, I still get the time to craft and do a few 'girly' things. 

For example...

When I want to make a beautiful pie I do it!  I just a have to make a few alterations...

... like using a "Yoda Using the Force" design.  :)

And since EVERY SINGLE PAIR OF JEANS (I swear!!!!) end up with holes in them I've been patching up a storm.  I've actually enjoyed it!  I consider it my 'sewing' time.  :)  And since flowers on a pair of little boy jeans just won't do, this is what we've come up with...

We've got Green Lantern

The Flash and Captain America

The Punisher

The Union Jack

Porter's favorite NFL team, the Chicago Bears

And of course Superman!

Not that I'm wishing for more holes in their jeans, but I had a lot of fun coming up with these ideas and creating these patches.  All I've done is look up a logo of what I want on Google, print it out in black and white in the size I need and then start cutting layers of fabric in the shapes I need and then sewing them together.  I sew a denim patch on the inside of the jeans to really patch them well and then add the patch on top and VOILA!!!!  

The boys think they're cool and I get my sewing habits taken care of. :)

Porter Gets Baptized

Porter turned 8 in December and was soooo excited to get baptized!  Since we were in Utah when he turned 8 and he wanted his cousins to be at his baptism, we decided to wait until January to have the baptism.  Grandma Hurren was able to come up for the occasion and it was a really great day.  We are so proud of Porter!  He is such a good boy.  He is gentle, soft-hearted and we love him so much.  Congratulations Porter.  We are proud of you for making the choice to be baptized!

Another Crazy Sledding Day

I'm just going to go ahead and let the images speak for themselves! :)
