Merry Christmas from our goofballs to yours!


I cant believe that my Hayden is 8!! He is such a great kid, and it is so hard having a Birthday so close to Christmas! We tried to celebrate all day...he had to share with the Christmas party, but presents and cake we added too! We love this kid, and all that he is! Happy Birthday bud!

Moms special pancakes

Hayden played flag football again this year! I am so proud of him, cause he really is learning and catching on to what football is all about! Mic helped coach, which is so funny for many reasons, but a little yelling never hurt anyone right? :) Hayden loved that his dad was there, and they actually went undefeated!!!

Our little princess turned 3!! This is actually the first year we even acknowledged her Birthday...last year she got a cupcake like a week later! The year before I am pretty sure we forgot all together!
She is way more girly then I would like, and her party went from a pumpkin painting party, to a "jingabell" (tinkerbell) fairy party! All my nieces around her age came to help celebrate. And her best buddie from next door, who is a boy, was such a good sport, and loved doing some of the girlie things!!

tryin to pose like jinga...tinka
her fairy cake
all the kids got their own fairy wings

we painted pumpkins, then painted faces and added pixie dust to our pumpkins and hair and body...glitter is the worst...I am still finding it!

I loved this picture...she was so happy that day!
All the kids with their pumpkins and fairy wings
her loot...
it was so funny each kid sat on the couch and waited patiently for their turn to give her a gift, then after she opened it, they very kindly took back their gift! Too funny!

This last picture she was DONE with the camera, and started posing and just plain being goofy! We had such a great day with her, and love her to pieces!!

We had some great first days of school around here!! I think that they were all pretty excited to start...especially Sawyer

Mack knew exactly what he wanted to do when Hayden was gone to school...exactly what we did last year. He had his friends come over and wait till Hayden got home and so they could all hug him! It was so cute! And just look at Haydens face, he secretly loved it too!

Mack will and has always been my "hard" one...he loves school, and loves his teacher...but would just rather hang out then do anything else! We will see what this year brings!

All she has talked about has been school....seriously!! She has carried around her backpack for at least a week...and she tells everybody ( a few times) that she is going to school! She is especially excited that she gets to go school with her cousin Claire....She is not quite 3 but she is potty trained and way to chatty to not go!!

Who need tents...bugs...bears...or nature when you can set up a sleepover in your own house! My kids loved every second of their campout with Dad....Mom slept great in my own room too!!

What a slacker I have been....but looking at these pictures brings a huge smile to my face!! The boys talked our babysitter into painting their face. This is what Mack said he wanted...but he took one look at himself and wanted it off!! I think he looks hilarious!

I know I have only said like 10 thousand times how much I love my neighborhood.....
But with this cute bunch of boys you just dont get much better
They all talked each other into getting their summer hair cuts! Hence the "buzz boys" we have a few more that we are missing...we hope to convince them to join our gang!!!
Honestly this group is best friends.....the big ones play with the little ones and they all get along so well!! We are so lucky to live so close to so many great friends!!

This picture is so fun cause they each have a brother in the pic...Hayden Mack...Mackay Kampton.....Issac and Aaron

explains this group perfectly!

cute cousins!!

I have so much to catch up on....but for now we are this happy....

We have our Dad back. School is over, he has a job, and we actually get to see him from now on! He got home and all the kids climbed on to tell him about their day!!! It was such a great moment!
