I am thankful...

i am thankful
by: tanner beasley
i'm thankful for many things. first, i'm lucky that i have a mom and dad and brothers. my mom and dad take care of me. next, my dog is soft and fluffy. he is very hyper. his name is patton. third, i'm thankful for God because he died for our sins and he gave us food and made the earth. finally, i'm thankful for my friends. they share toys with me and they are nice to me. these are the things that i'm most thankful for.

love is..

the other day i was reading a blog and i came upon this quote, i LOVE it....

"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being in love which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two." – Captain Corelli’s Mandolin

csuf soccer game..

smooshie's team was invited to the csuf vs. ucla soccer game ,
they got picked to walk with csuf team on the field.
it was so cute. they had a great time.
the only bummer was csuf lost 3-2. but it was still a great game

seth's 35th...

seth's bday was last week and we celebrated with a little
dinner party at our house. it was super fun eating outside with friends.
happy bday babe!
love you :)

first day of school...

school year2nd , 5th , kinder
all the boys are in school now 5 days a week.
i am still having a hard time adjusting to this new time of my life.
i have been mourning that the baby stage is over
and now i am a mom of school age kids.
luckily for me smoosh gets out early
(he onlygoes half day),
but it still has been hard.

my big 2nd grader
he loves his teacher
and is in class with 2 of his best buds.

he was more then ready to start school and to have his OWN homework.
he let me walk him to class on the first day but THAT WAS IT!
every day since then he wants me to drop him off at the gate just like the older boys.
he said to me "mom, i am fine! i have been coming to this school since i was 1years old. i know what i am doing!"
he has a point.
but i wasn't ready for this new independance

the reason there are no pics of the new 5th grader cause i guess it's not cool to have your mom walk you to class and take pics at the door. i understand. sort of :)

smooshie's bday party...

**smooshies' 6th bday** this year smoosh celebrated his bday at bounce -u with some of his buddies.
super simple party (which mom likes )
we had a blast!

isaiah's baptism...

on sunday august 22nd, 2o10 isaiah was baptized
seth and pastor chris baptized him
seth prayed for him and he said he was super emotional
i was too
it is so amazing watching your baby who you love
make this choice on their own
to make a public profession of their faith and love for jesus christ
it was a great moment

isaiah we are so proud of the choices you have made
and the boy that you are,
your heart for the Lord is truly amazing.
we love you so much!

happy 6th birthday smooshie!!....

**happy birthday my shweet shweet smoosh** i can' t believe it has been 6 years since our last baby was born.
you have been such a blessing to all of our lives.
for your 6th birthday i am going to write 6 things that we love about our smooshie.
1. you are still and will always be " smooshie". you have turned into your nickname. so many people don't ever even call you by your real name. we love it. i wonder how much longer it will last :)
2. you are so funny!! you love to make people laugh and you love being the class clown.
3. you have what we like to call "smooshie reasons" it's kind of your own set of rules that you make along the way in life (usually for your benefit). they are hysterical.
4. you adore your brothers, but even though you are the youngest you don't let them boss you around. alot of times you are the boss.
5. you still love to cuddle. especially when you wake up in the morning. one of my favorite things ever with you these past 6 years has been cuddling you with your crazy hair every.single.morning!
6. you run, jump, hop, or skip every where you go. i think you need to make a "smooshie workout and diet" video and we would all be skinny :) you move all the time, and snack all day. i get tired just watching you . :)
we love you soo much!!
happy birthday!!!!
