Meet Boomer!

The kids have been really missing having a pet since we lost Bandit. Della has been keeping us posted when she has come across a really cool cat. Mom & I went to take Della to lunch for her birthday and we went over to the Animal Hospital to check him out. He's adorable and looks alot like Bandit. It took us 5 days to come up with a name we all agreed upon. Boomer is pretty active, (but then again Bandit was a fat cat and this is a 4 month old kitten), quite skiddish (he's lived most of his life in a cage) and thinks my candle room is one giant cat toy just for him! We all love Boomer!!

Jason's a Bronco!

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).

Megan's 18th Birthday!

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???
