Down. Set. Hut. HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILL

It is hard to believe that I have a 10 year old.
Will celebrated his birthday this year with a FOOTBALL themed party

We sent out invitations:

Come join us on the 50 yard hash

it’s gonna be a great big Birthday Bash!

For Will Boehme, he’s turning 10 soon

And wants to play football Saturday afternoon!

Too many presents make Will go looney!

Instead if you could, please bring a Tooney

Saturday October 30th

1-4 p.m.

Dress for the weather and bring a football if your game!!


I made a cake!

And then the greatest part about this party was that COACH Brian took it from there!! Brian loves the game of football and so he ran a really fun camp for the boys all afternoon. Will invited about 25 boys and 17 came. The weather was great and the boys had so much fun learning some skills and just having fun doing what boys do best, PLAY HARD!

Will's good buddy, Parks Hirsche letting Coach Brian demonstrate a good tackle!! What a sport!
Here are the boys. Tired, happy and ready for cake!

I thought the cake turned out well, and Will loved it! It was a really fun Saturday afternoon celebrating our BIG man Will. We love you so much Will and are so proud of you!

(On the night of Will's actual birthday we took him out for a special date just with Mom and Dad. We had such a nice time together. We gave him his present, an iPod and he said this was his best birthday EVER! We had such a nice time just being with him. We went to the FIRESTONE GRILL and they were so kind to open the patio just for us, heated and all! Will was impressed with the open fire torches lighting the room and the neat reflection pool/waterfall. We had the BIG TALK with him and were impressed with his maturity. That discussion is always intense, but he handled everything so well. We came away from that night feeling so glad that as parents if we are in tune we can choose the right moments in a child's life to teach when they are ready to hear. I love the challenges of being a parent and how with the Lord's help we can grow to be the parents he needs us to be for each unique and special child placed in our home)

You gotta "(g)love" it!!!




My little man found my rubber gloves and they were the new toy for a few minutes and then like everything else they were dropped and he was on to the next thing. He is a such a busy boy.
Seth's little personality is really shinning these days.
He is starting to say a few words and he is developing his inner comedian. Who wouldn't with such a great audience every day! He does the Mr. Cheeze face at suppertime to get a few laughs, you know nose up in the air, lips in the silliest grin, showing those little chompers! I love how his sweet little voice fills our home with laughter. It is contagious. Seth can say Mama, Dada, Wowl (Will), Diesa (diesel has obviously made quite the impression), Uh-oh, All Da (all done), Dow, Wa Wa (water).
But my favorite is Mama . . . BIG surprise I know, but there is just something so special about the way Seth says my name, it's that inflection at the end that just makes my heart melt! How wonderful to be truly needed, and loved. There are probably more words I am forgetting to mention, but I did write all this down in my journal too!

I love this sweet, chubby, high spirited little boy more than words can express. He has grown much to fast for my liking but in my heart I have cherished every minute.

flash back to Thanksgiving











We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving this year!
I had fun cleaning (ARG!) and decorating for this years get-together!

Jenny and I planned the meal and put together quite the feast!
Everything was so delicious and being together with family made it P E R F E C T
( everyone except the Colorado clan who were missed SO dearly!)

Here are a few pictures of everyone. We laughed, ate, shared what we were grateful for and relished in the moment of
T O G E T H E R N E S S!

How blessed I feel to have such a wonderful family. Each member is so dear, each relationship special, and I know that the associations we share here on this earth will, if we are faithful, last F O R E V E R!

I GIVE THANKS FOR THIS KNOWLEDGE!
