So Jeff and I had a PO-KE-NO party on Saturday night. We had a few neighbors over and taught them how to play. We had a great time!

I think we've decided to make it a monthly game night! I've always wanted to be a part of one but never could get it together with my crazy schedule. FUN TIMES!!

football physical

Malachi had a physical for football this week. As we went in, he asked me if he had to have a shot and I said I didn't think so. Turns out he did. He was so brave this time. He didn't even flinch or cry!! He's turning into such a big boy!!

rock climbing

Mema and Papa watched Malachi and Makaelyn this weekend so on Sunday I went to pick them up and we had brunch at Mona's and then decided to go to REI and look around.

Malachi wanted to rock climb so we signed him up and he got all his gear on for the climb. He excels at anything athleticly. Wish I was like him. It ended up being a very fun Sunday!!


broncos vs. cowboys

So I got the privilege to go to a NFL game with a friend!! I've only been one other time and I don't remember anything from that game as it was snowy, rainy and I was freezing. This time was an awesome experience! The seats were great, the company was great, the food was well you know ball park food (yum, yum) and the weather turned out to be great!! Final score: Denver 23 and Dallas 13. GO BRONCOS!!!!!!

Malachi received this from his teacher and I thought it was so sweet of her to mail postcards to her class.

back to school night

We got to meet Malachi's 1st grade teacher tonight at back to school night. Mrs. Stransky seems really nice and I know he will have a great year! He got to pick out his name tag and put it in the desk he wanted to sit in! We got his school supplies all in his desk. It's official...he'll be in school ALL day now! This has been a big week for Malachi!!!


1st football practice

Malachi had his first football practice last night. He did so well for his first practice!! We're so excited for him. GO WIZARDS!!

rockies game

We had a great day at the Rockies game. The Rockies lost big time to the San Diego Padres, but we still had a fun day. This was Makaelyn's first game! Of course for her it was about the ice cream, popcicals and slushies!! What can you say for a two year old! FUN TIMES!!

After the game we stayed for Faith Day at the Rockies. Steven Curtis Chapman had a concert that was out of this world. I'm amazed by his family and what they have endured after losing their 5 year old daughter this past May. What a wonderful family of faith. It was an emotional concert but one of the best because of its rawness and openess.

the BOY is back

I am so happy Malachi is home!! We sure did miss him. He looks like he's grown a foot since he's been gone. Our house is back to normal or as normal as we get!!
