A Visit with Santa

Our visit with Santa this year. We know why we celebrate Christmas, but we still enjoy our annual visit with the real Santa Claus. His official drivers license lists his name as Santa Claus.

My Camera is broken.
What a weekend for it to be broken. We had a lot of kodak moments this weekend. Our Saturday schedule was this:
9AM Kaeden's soccer game in Lake Stevens
Noon Kenna's soccer game in Marysville
1:00 Birthday party, which actually started at 12:30, but we were late because of soccer
2:00 End of Season Soccer Party for Kaeden
4:00 End of Season Soccer Party for Kenna
I would have loved to have taken pictures of their last games and each of them receiving their trophies. Both of the kids soccer coaches invited the whole team and their families to their house for the party.
We ate so much junk throughout the day... birthday cake... pizza... ice cream sundaes... hot dogs... hamburgers and all the fixings... chips... dip... cupcakes... cookies... pop... and more.
Today Shawn and I started off with stomach aches, so we weren't sure what was going on so we stayed home from Sunday School. By the time we needed to decide whether or not we were going to church, we felt much better. We weren't sure what the tummy aches were from???
Going to church on Sunday mornings is such a great way to start off the week. Our Worship Team is fabulous and they sing such great songs that speak right to the heart and praise God. Pastor's Message today was on the wife's/woman's role. I enjoyed listening to it and getting a better understanding of being a submissive wife... not an inferior wife.. but knowing my role as a wife and to be a helper to my husband. We were created for a purpose and it is to support and give our husband the authority. I did not grow up hearing the word of God and this concept has been hard for me to grasp. This has definitely been a challenge to me because I am so strongwilled and have a dominant personality, but I am learning and praying how to be a godly wife to my husband.
We ended our Sunday, by heading up to my sis's house in Anacortes for my nephew's 3 Birthday Party!!!! Ty was adorable. He was so excited about his party. Being around family is so nice, the kids all enjoyed playing with each other. More good food... ugh! I think I am going to have to buy bigger pants.
Have a wonderful week!

My favorite Niece & Nephew!

We were fortunate last night to watch Ty and Tatum. Kaeden's friend was also over the evening, I guess it was date night for those couples. We had fun. Tatum is hilarious when you take pictures of her. She says cheese and moves her lower jaw to the side. It's funny!

Kendyl is now 3 and a half. My baby is getting older. She has been going to preschool this year where I am working. It's been great to see her in the classroom and to know what she is learning so we can talk about it. I am practically pulling my hair out to get any information out of Kaeden and Kenna about their day, so it's quite nice that I know what Kendyl is learning.
Kendyl was coloring while I was watching the Officer Brenton Memorial online (I don't know the family personally, but, Officer Brenton, who was shot and killed in the line of duty last week has a son at Kaeden and Kenna's school - please lift them up in prayer!)
Kendyl colored this picture. She said look mommy, a pattern! I looked and she did a 5 color pattern all by herself. I was shocked to see that she did it all by herself. At preschool, we have only touched base on patterns 2 times. My other two kids couldn't do this at her age, they are all so different. Please don't think I am bragging, I know there are a lot of other 3 year olds that can do this, but I am proud of my baby!

just one kiss
