I got Mom's Santa that Grandma Babe painted for her when Mom moved into her apartment. I've been wanting to get it framed but figured it would be expensive. Della suggested covering the old wood with fabric. (She's so cleaver!!) So, I headed to Walmart today to look for possible fabrics keeping in mind the bright limeish green Grandma Babe choose for the background. (I should have taken a better "before" picture!)

Says the commentator of the Toro's National Division II Soccer Final game. We think he's pretty brilliant as well -- especially since he is my nephew! My sister Della, husband Richard, two of their kids Mike and Julie along with his Aunt Mickie got to go to Tampa Florida to cheer on the team this weekend. They won their semi-final game on Friday which made them eligible for the TV aired finals today (Sunday!). We TiVo'd the game and saw as much as we could before our 1pm church and then had Mary Alice, kids & Mom join us after church to recap and see the final 3-0 score! He was named MVP of the final tournament. So cool to be able to see him on TV!! Way to go Kev!!!! For more info and action photos go to: http://www.gotoros.com/

Brenda Torsak, Sharon Kellilliki and I got together this week for a very sad occassion. Brenda's Dad passed away and Sharon came down from Utah for the funeral. The three of us haven't been together since college. Sharon lost her father just two weeks prior so now the three of us continue to live the legacy our extremely wise and insightful fathers have left us with. I know we all think we are our Daddy's little girl even to this day. Our Dads were the kind of Dad who made us all feel that way.

We are now the proud owner of this food storage orgnizer! It retails for over $400 and we got it used for $50. (It front loads so you can keep your food in expiration order.) I received an email from a friend in our ward asking if I'd help out a friend by letting people know it was for sale. I told him sure . . . . as soon as I checked it out for myself. It has hardly been used and the people selling it were downsizing into a mobile so no garage space. (I'm sure my friend in our ward had no idea what a deal this was otherwise would have taken advantage himself!!) Eric went with me to check it out, we loaded it up and was sweet to help me figure out how to customize it for our cans. (A very tedious process for sure!!) We then had to make room in the garage. Ideally this would go in a basement but for now this is the best we can do. (Once again, no camera so this picture is taken from the internet). What a deal . . . . what a blessing!

Jason earned his Arrow of Light! Our Stake did a special ceremony that includes his crossing the bridge into Boy Scouts. Each family decorates their own plaque and Jason got a ton of compliments on his. So now we are just waiting for "Mom" to graduate from Cub Scouts as Webelo leader!! We're proud of you Jason!!! Next step . . . Eagle! Okay . . . so there's a few more steps in between!

Football season is offically here! We're a Charger Family, huge BYU Cougar fans, our high school mascot is Nighthawks, yet Jason is a Bronco with Jr. All American Football (very similiar to Pop Warner).
His colors are blue and gold which are the colors of our High School Rival, Vista. There are about 6 boys on their team who wear their team jerseys to school on Fridays. They get some odd looks as you would expect Nighthawk colors which are Red & Black. Of course these boys say they are switching High Schools.
He is on a team with two of his friends from church, Tanner and Justin and they are having a blast! Jason plays center and defensive tackle. He got the game MVP medal on Saturday which was very exciting! Justin plays 2nd string QB and Receiver and Tanner plays Defensive Tackle. His coach says if these three boys keep playing they will no doubt be playing varsity early on in High School. All three boys show a lot of heart and ability.
Megan took these pictures for a scrapbook assignment she had. I'll get some game photos blogged later on. (My good camera died so I'm using an old one with poor resolution until I can get it replaced).

I'm sure she won't forget this birthday! Being on a Saturday she got to take some friends, (Rachel, Rebekah & Katelynn) to see Sugarland at the LA County Fair. (Mom and Dad got to come too!). Brandon decided to start her day off my postering her inside her room. So when she woke up to being 18 she had this wall of poster in her doorway! Megan couldn't beleive he made this himself . . . but he did! What a good brother!! Madison & Jason got in on the act as while we were at the fair, they all three TP'd her room. They even wrote "I 'heart' U" on the wall with TP. Very cute -- just a little annyoing to take down at 1 am -- but then again when isn't cleaning up TP annoying???
