    State Wrestling/ Season End

    No Comments

    State Wrestling Tournament was January 26th and 27th! I went and watched Packer wrestle on Friday. Ben and Grandpa Netty cheered and coached. He wrestled 5th-6th Grade bracket, 60-64 lbs. His first match up was against the guy that won the bracket. Packer survived the first round and then he got pinned. His 2nd guy pinned him in the first round 🙁 Packer was excited to be there though and proud of his hard work and improvement.

    Benji wrestled early Saturday morning. I wasn’t there to take pictures 🙁 I decided to go to the Temple with Shannon instead) Ben and Grand[a Netty were there. He wrestled in the 7th, 8th, 9th grade bracket at 104-108. He got beat pretty bad on both of his match ups.

    Ray wrestled Saturday evening in the Kindergarten 40-43 bracket. They did a round robin and he beat all 3 guys! He pinned the first 2 and then won by points on the last one! Ben and I and Grandpa Netty and Michelle and Udine were there to watch.

    Shae and Tyler got Married

    No Comments

    I decided that I really wanted to be at Shaelyn’s wedding so I bought a plane ticket and met up with Kelsey and Shannon at the airport and had a great weekend with my siblings and extended fam! Millie was a little sad to let me leave. We flew out on Thursday evening and I had a blast with my sisters:

    Millie was also upset that I was going to get wedding cake so her dad got them cake! Mom picked us all up at the San Jose Airport and we went back to the Eggers house. We crashed the bachelorette party and had a fun pre-wedding evening.

    The wedding was Friday around noon. They were SOO Happy and SOO Excited. It was a beautiful wedding. Christy had food for everyone and I had some quality car time with mom, dad, Shannon, Kelsey, Tracie, John and Michael.

     

    The reception was at a golf course. We had mac and cheese bar and all you can drink soda bar. I’ve got to admit that it was nice to just enjoy the atmosphere, help out where I could, and not worry about my kids. Josh and Brady were security, the cake fiasco was dealt with and the place was packed. We danced until 9:00 and then sent the couple on their way. Clean up and then a big sleepover in Holister.

    On Saturday we had GIRLS day out. We went to lunch and to the outlets and to dinner! and celebrated Mal’s birthday.

    We hung out again Saturday evening and most everyone went home. This is where my phone stopped working so the pictures end… but we went to church the next morning and then to dinner at the friends house with all of the other friends and then Bryce took us to the airport. I had a BLAST.

    Meanwhile back at home:

    Ben stayed and worked from home on Friday! and then took the kids to the 4:00 movie.

    Saturday: Erica watched the kids all day while the boys went to their wrestling tournament and they finished out the night with Pizza Pie Cafe! Ben is the BEST! I think they even got to church on time. He made them roast and potatoes! The house was clean when I got home! amazing husband!

    Some Cool Gifts

    Carol and Larry made me a TETHER BALL!! They had one in their backyard so I’ve been begging for one. I told them I’m good for the money to cover the cost and they came through and delivered it the first weekend in January!!

    Ben wanted to build a workshop area in the basement but we never communicated that to the contractor doing the basement. Ben’s Dad got word of it and talked with Ben and HE BUILT IT! It fit like a glove and looks great. Ben was so excited to organize his tools like his dad does 🙂

    The whole family got to go to the work party this year!

    Dinner at The Galivan Center and Ice Skating and Hot Chocolate and Cookies!! I was nervous about the ice skating but all of the kids surprised me and really just jumped out there and skated their best. It was fun and they are still talking about it.

    Wrestling Season

    No Comments

    Soccer ended on the 28th and Wrestling started on the 30th!
    The big boys go to practice Monday – Thursday – 4:30-6:30. Ray signed up this year and he goes Tues and Thurs from 6:30-7:30. So besides the lack of family dinner time its fun to have them pushing themselves and working hard.

    First Practice:

    After practice wrestling:

    Raymonds first tournament! Check in. Go. 2 point reversal. Get him on his back. He WINS!

    I like to come and watch and the kids come and “watch” or play toys, or color, or eat, or wander around and make friends…

    Ray’s 2nd match was really hard and he cried in the middle and didn’t want to finish but he stuck it out. And beat the next 2 guys and ended up with a 1st place out of the 5!

    Benji was at a BYU Pow Wow so he didn’t get to wrestle in this tournament.

    Packer worked hard but got beat all 3 times. He stayed tough and never got pinned! 4th place for him.

    Escape Room

    No Comments

    For Nathaniel’s Birthday we went out to Rockwell’s Ice Cream and then to an escape room! We had never done one and we had a blast. We solved it with 5 seconds to spare! Than, Erica, Kyle, Becca and us. There were 2 times that we had it figured out but just had problems actually opening the lock – otherwise we would have dominated 🙂

    RSL date night

    Date Night!

    I love these little turkeys but sometimes a night away is just what I need! I took them to the pet store while we waited for the tires to get changed on the van 🙂 They love to do stuff like this with me but I love to do those errands on my own as my free time. They weren’t the best listeners this day but we survived and I’m glad I let them come along.

    Motorcycle Dad Night

    Millie was so excited to go out with Dad!

    On his Motorcycle!

    To get a treat!

    She got a new special seat belt harness to keep her on tight and I love when kids are still figuring out the THUMBS UP sign.

    They stopped for a treat and played at the park. Millie was in HEAVEN – the girl loves attention, she thrives on one on one time. LOve her spunkyness!
