Flag Football time again!!

I took these pictures with my phone, so hopefully I'll get some good ones with my camera this season.

Aren't they so cute out there?! Eli and Josiah are on the same team this season. It's a Pre-K/Kindergarten team, and we are all about the ease of putting kids on the same team(s).

Eli is a beast. He's so competitive, and it shows in his focus and determination in practices and games. It makes us laugh. He is now dubbed "Beast Mode" thanks to flag football. Finally, I appreciate and see the positives of his major competitive spirit.

Josiah is actually doing pretty well. At four years old (and a little bit...well, a lot of bit...of a hyperactive child), we weren't sure if he would stay focused/listen/keep his head in the game. He is so fun-loving and social, and he seems to be really enjoying football as well as getting a good grip on what he's supposed to be doing out there. They have had him at center quite a bit, which is great, because he stands in one place and because he gets to touch the ball every time :)

Justus is so much more aggressive this season than he was last season. It's so fun to see him maturing in that way. He is a little athlete, that is for sure!

Titus loves football. He jumps around out on the field the whole time, dancing and doing all kinds of pro-football player moves. His team last season was amazingly good, so he had a lot of fun winning all the time. We'll see how this team does!

Derek is coaching Titus and Justus' teams, so that leaves us girls on the sidelines, cheering on our boys. I'll hopefully get some good pics of Naomi watching her heroes :)

Titus is eight!!!

A video of clips from the day...pretty sloppy and the noise cuts out at the end. Ugh
Oh well...good times :)

And now some pics:

Eight years old!!!!!??????

Yeah, we kind of like Chuck E Cheese, too.

The boys are all so very much into basketball right now

Grandude trying a little football

Naomi, may you be a woman who is able to laugh at herself :)
(and one day look back at this picture and love it!)


Look at that stud!!! Goodness, he is good looking.
Titus, you are close in line :)

Naomi loved Chuck E Cheese

We were so glad to have Grandude and Mimi here!

Beautiful snow day

"Dad, really? Why are you laying in the snow?"

Naomi's first snow day!
(first time to go out in it anyway)

"Um, no thank you. I want no part in touching that stuff."

We got the boys laser tag guns. They. are. awesome. 
Derek plays, neighborhood friends play, Derek's friends play. haha
Naomi and I can go about our girly business and not have to dodge Nerf bullets...we do have to watch out for people tearing around the corner, but it's fun all around.
Happy early birthday to Titus! (and everyone else in the house)
This is a pic of Derek teaching them the ropes.

Cutie...what else can I say?

Da boys

Maybe now I'll blog?

I got off of the Facebook ride. No need to explain all of the why's...but here we are. People are already texting me, calling me, asking where I am and how they will be able to keep up with our family. My intention is to blog now in order to preserve memories, pictures, and videos. We'll see if I keep up with it :)

Here are a few pics and one short video of our little growing princess from the last few days...
