Happy Birthday Little Brother!

That is right today March 23 Shane is a whole year older! He has entered his last year of his twenties. I did that 2 years ago, don't worry the thirties are even better.

You are a great brother, wonderful Uncle and I hope you have a fabulous Birthday!

Everyone's Parents are Rock Stars....Right?

I wonder how many of you knew that my parents just recently released a cd? I know you all repeatably tell me about my astounding singing voice and endless music capabilities (note the sarcasm) therefore assumed I must be the product of two talented musicians. Well guess what I am. My Mom and Dad are part of
The Knitting Club
Gene Murphy and the Knitting Club to be exact. Just before Christmas they released their first CD titled Travelers on the Black Line.

You can hear for yourself they have a website and myspace.

Bountiful Babies!

Today at our Mom's Playgroup baby Kaitlyn was ready to meet all of her new friends. Look how adorable all three of these babies look in their car seats. They are all born within 4month of each other. We also typically have Ruby and Ben that make the baby collection complete but they were away today.

Abby was in her glory FINALLY meeting Ka- issa and Batt's baby. She didn't want to let her go! Good thing cousin Jacob was there to fill her need to mother the young.

Cole was there for Abby to dress up....what a good sport!

Her friend Sam was here today too and they played amazingly together but of course I couldn't move fast enough to capture the two of them on their many adventures together!

Busy Weekend

Our Weekend was jam packed full!

We started out with a birthday party for Carissa. We had a great time eating, playing games and just hanging out with close friends. I still say Ryan shouldn't of put Canary for his first pet....I mean really.
Happy Birthday Carissa we hope the year ahead is better then you ever could dream. For those who don't know Carissa she is ready to pop and anytime in the next couple weeks her little girl will come out to meet us!

Saturday was Sports Mania. Caleb was first with his final session of soccer. He is grinning from ear to ear while playing. I have to admit he is fast and really show drive and determination. His biggest weakness is his size those darn feet just can't keep up to the rest of him. Josh had his little tournament of games. Game 1 he was into it running keeping up with the play still preferring to be in net (thank goodness they rotate), Game 2 he found the middle of the field and pretty much just hung out. Game 3 he was back and making purposeful passes and attempts it was great to see!

After soccer we race off to Hockey. The boys are in Fun Hockey and that is just what it is. A time for them to develop there skating skill and hockey skills through fun drills and games. They both have improved leaps and bounds with their skating.

After hockey off to have lunch with Daryl and Janelle to debate the differences between soccer and hockey through the eyes of the spectator parent. I see many a days in my future to be in a rink. I don't mind that part it is getting all the gear off and on....YIKES. Brainwashing and bribery are in the works to get hockey on these boys minds and trust me it is NOT their Moms doing this.

After lunch. We had a yummy dinner at my parents house. It was wonderful for all 14 of us to get together. My mom used to have us all on a weekly basis, nothing like cooking for 14 once a week(she didn't seem to mind). But with the busy school schedules we have not been able to do that.

After family dinner it was time for bed...I would like to say everyone slept like a baby but our baby sure didn't. Abby was up for 2 hours last night beside herself screaming. If anyone figures out what her problem was feel free to let us know.

After the night came morning an early one at that. Off to church for a very special Sunday. Our littlest nephew Jacob was dedicated today. We kept our kids in the service so they could be apart of praying for him. Abby was quite cute when she saw her Auntie and Uncle go to the platform she figured she should go too, I managed to distract her. Then when they were stepping off the stage she cheered and clapped saying yeah uncle Marc. Very cute.

In a nutshell that was us this weekend.

Our Prayers Worked!

We found out today that Jake does NOT need surgery, but does have a bad bad break, and dislocated his elbow. He has a SUPER cast on that should fix everything. He has been such a trooper! Your cast looks very cool Jakey!!!
