Owen Playing Soccer

On Friday I came across a add for a local soccer program, Soccer shots. And they had a program that Owen could play, a 11 week program. The first day on Saturday ( the next day). I did not want to tell Owen about it just in case it was to late to sign him up. It was not to late!!!!
After we ate breakfast I asked Owen a few questions.
Me "Owen do you want to do some thing new and fun today?"
Owen "Yes mom, what?"
Me " You are going to play soccer with other kids at the park. Do you want to do that?"
Owen "YES!!! Lets go. I want a number. Lets go mom lets go"

After getting dress and a quick call to Aunt Kimmy and Uncle Nathan we were off.

My little guy was a little shy at first. But with Owen this is normal. One of the coaches say this and took Owen by the hand and help him get over his shyness. As a parent who was shy as a child it always makes me a little worry at first. At the first water break he came running to me saying. "Mom I cant do it" This made me sad. I explained to him that it is OK that he feels a little shy. Then I reminded him that he felt a little shy when we started going to kids club ( the gym) but he now loves going and the same with Swim lessons. He loved at me and said "OK mom"  He walked to the rest of the kids. The next water break he came running over and said "Mom I did it I did. I play soccer ball." My little boy was playing soccer running and kicking the ball and having fun.
They even played a little game. Owen was on the yellow team. Before they started to play he ran over to me to show me his yellow shirt. He did a great job!! When he had the ball Emily would yell "Go Owen." Way cute.

On the way home Owen asked me "Mom I want to play more soccer ball"" I think he liked it. He could not wait to tell his dad all about it and show his hand stamp and sticker. Owen even showed people at Costco.

Hello Happy Friday!

The kids were covered in my makeup. They were so proud of themselves.  Owen said "look mom I'm a monster" Emily said "I am pretty" Thank goodness for baby wipes. Have a great day and a great weekend!

I want to help

As many of you know when you are working on something the kids will want to help. As I was working on the Blog Owen kept saying "Mom I want to help" "Mom can I help". So I let Owen helped. Below is just a part of what Owen wrote. But I can translate for you.

"Mom I am fixing the Internet"
"I doing Sissy birthday party"
"Mom all fixed"

Christmas card fun 2012

We had a great Christmas the past year. Owen is at the age when he know what its all about. So we made sure to be at our home for Christmas morning for Santa. Here a couple pictures of us trying to do our Christmas card. I think that is shows how much fun we had and how silly our kids are.

We found that our sleeping children take cute pictures.
They stay still.

Cookie weekend Part 2

My last post was about our cookie weekend trip. It was a great weekend filled with family and cooking. The trip started in Newport in the early hours of the day and ending in San Francisco that night. By the end of the trip the kids were at the end. They wanted out of their car seats. Owen did great, thanks to snacks and a DVD player. Emily and the Twins were just to young to care about a movie they just wanted out.
Here are a couple of pictuers of all the cookies.

When all the cooking is done it is time to go see Santa. If you are in the bay area and looking for a Santa to see, Sanford mall is the way to go. With our aprons in hand and a plate of cookies we waited in line to see Santa. When it was out time Owen was the first kids to get see Santa. Owens face lit up as he walked up to Santa and sat next to him. Santa read him a story as they waited for it to be time for the picture to be taken. Tears welled up in my eyes, because you could really see the wonder and amazement of the moment. Emily was still a little to young to know who this man was holding her, but still really cute.
The twins were not that happy to be on Santa’s lap. But he was so cute and funny at the same time. They kept looking at us with a look of why are you doing this to me.
  We make a lot of cookies. And I mean a lot of cookies. We spend all day cooking, laughing, and having a great time.  Below are 2 pictuers of "The Big Bowl" we use and some cute kids.

I just love this.

Emily loves her Aunt Sandy.

I took this on the way home. Owen holding my hand.

I had a great weekend and I know that everyone did too. Thank you Aunt Vickie for opening you home to us and hosting another great cookie weekend.
