The Football Life

So, this is my first year as a "football-wife". I'd love to say it was a breeze, but honestly it wasn't as bad as I had dreaded it to be. It was fun going up to the games and the kids had a blast. I didn't travel with the team to any away games, maybe next year!

Peter's #1 fan! Malia loved "Waldo" and refused to let anyone near him.

its not football without kettle corn. mmmm!

But let's be honest... all good things must come to an end so I can regain my sanity and get ready for the next season. I am excited to have a husband/father home. I can't do this single-parent thing for too long. :)

Malia turned 3!

I can't believe Malia is already 3! Where has the time gone? I threw her a party and it was a ton of fun. A LOT of work, but totally worth it. Jason was out of town for a football game. I did make a note that I will NEVER do a party without him again. We work really well together. I plan it all and he entertains. I am NOT an entertainer, but luckily 3 year olds only need balloons to keep them busy. Here are some pictures from the day....

We took her to Nicklecade for her special day.

Malia was SO excited that Brittny came to the party.

I had the kids decorate their own cupcakes and take the plates home as their party favor. It turned out great!

Where do I start?

I know! It has been like FoReVeR since I have blogged. Life has been super crazy. Here is a quick update....

Jason is still coaching the defensive line up at Weber State University. He is LOVING it (and I am learning to love it). They haven't had as good as season as we have hoped, but the Defense had done a GREAT job. Jason is still working at United Airlines, so he is extra busy. When he has a little time off from Weber, he is at the airport catching up on his hours. But I'm NOT complaining... I love the flight benefits!

I am still working at Potterybarn Kids and Gap. I have taken time off from the hospital during the football season. I was called to be the second counselor in our ward's primary this past May. I was really worried about all the added time it would take, but I have been really blessed these past few months and have noticed that my work schedule and church schedule have worked out great with one another.

Taliana just finished fall soccer and is totally bummed that it is over! She was a great forward! She is working hard in school and is top in her class. We are SO proud of her. Taliana is still dancing for Tanner Dance, but I think this is end in December as she would rather focus on soccer. What can I say? I tried! She also started playing piano again after taking some time off.

Ammon finished fall soccer and flag football. Ammon was a great goalie for the soccer team and an all-around awesome player for the flag football team. He was great at running back, quarterback, and a few other positions (that i am still learning the name of). Ammon just started piano this past month and is really enjoying it. However, he doesn't like the fact that he has to get up earlier in the morning now to practice.

Malia is enjoying her alone time with me! She wishes she were in school, so hopefully we can find her somewhere to go in January. Until then... I really do enjoy spending my days with her and listening to her talk. Which most of her sentences begin with... "Oh my gosh...". hahahaha

Meesha has found a new friend (Max). She visits him every morning for a few hours - then I have to go and get her because she refuses to come home.

okay.... now for the moment I'm sure you've all been waiting for.... updated pictures.....

We took the kids to Hawaii during the summer. A much needed family trip!
Malia finally had her chance to meet the princesses at Disneyland.

And Taliana and Ammon rode all the "fun" rides with Jason while I waited in lines to see all the princesses. Totally worth it.!
