Been Lazy!

Wow! Its been nine months since i've last updated this thing.. I think its time to start getting back into the habit of doing so!

Back in August my kids started school again, I can't believe how big they are getting! My little Paigey is in first grade, my Ethan boy a fifth grader, Ashlyn started middle school, and Aubrie is now in high school!! 10th grade I cannot believe that time has gone by so fast with these kids!
Ive been so caught up in work, sports, etc. Its always drive here, drive there! Lucky for me, Aubrie can drive now so i've been having her do so, and shes not that bad! Pretty soon she'll be 16 and I know there is already a list of handsome young men just waiting to take her on a date!

School is going good now for my kids. Ashlyn is no longer at Summit, and is at South Hills Middle, I must say thats the smartest decision I have ever made. Shes getting such great grades and everything.
Aubrie, my slacker, is doing amazing in school! On her mid-terms she had nothing below an A-.
I am so proud of all of them!
P.S. This post was written by Aubrie Blackburn...thus the uncapitalized letters!!

Yes, I love my son!

Getting his BEAR badge!
Reading with of his favorite things!

His cousin Dylan...he and Dylan have their futures planned together with college and all!

His favorite movie (YouTube Videos..I won't let him see the real thing yet!) He was Freddy Krueger for Halloween!

Dressed up in his uniform for school...the suspenders he needed for a play but BOY OH BOY, does he look like his Grandpa with those on!
Quick story to share about Ethan, (his teacher was in tears telling me this). At the beginning of the year, they were doing a read aloud in class for a play and the girl in front of him couldn't read very well, and his teacher forgot this. Well, Ethan stood behind the girl and told her the words in her ear and did it in a way that no one would notice, but his teacher did. Just a KIND HEARTED boy. I know great things will come from this boy of mine. I am so thankful he is one of my children. I love them all soooooo much!

Aubs and track

Aubrie is on the track team at Riverton and she is doing great. She is running against Varsity in all her heats...she will be doing long jump today! I hope to get pics of that. She is spot on with all the other gals she is running with. She is VERY fast and I am so proud of her! She has really exceled and done great. Her grades are doing great. She is on the Honor Roll this month! SO EXCITED!! This trac team has been the motivation that she has needed. She also has a VERY wonderful Vice Principal at school who has really made a difference in her life. We thank you Mr. Stanley!

Happy Holidays!

So I am getting sick of seeing the Halloween blog. I don't have time for anything anymore. I have been working on all my Christmas gifts for work mates the past hour and a half. I am glad that I started making them early. It is a homemade Christmas. Sometimes those are the best gifts.

I am excited for a couple weeks of sleeping in (at least till 6:30 a.m.). I am also excited to just hang with my babies!

I love this time of year. I love the feelings you get of love and service. I love taking my kids shopping for Toys for Tots and I am so proud that they get so excited to do it each year.

This year Ethan has been involved in a Homeless Youth program, so he is collecting stuff for them. He wants me to use his Christmas money to buy stuff for these kids. That is the true meaning of Christmas.

At this Christmas time, I like to reflect on the birth of our Savior. I wish I could have been there to witness the star in the east. My favorite song is "O HOLY NIGHT". I love the feeling that song gives me.

I hope we all remember the true meaning of Christmas. I hope your days are merry and bright!
