Catch up from last weekend to this weekend

So, we have had a busy week. Tucker is playing on the YMCA basketball team and has practice twice a week and a game on Saturday's. On Saturday the 10 it was picture day so I snuck a few pictures of him while the photographer was getting his.

His picture time was at 9:10 and game time was at 10. He is was battleing a pretty bad jammed thumb and managed to get it good during the game so I scooped him up and we headed to Tre's games. He had a double header at 9 and 11:30. His team did pretty well for playing in their first tournament together. Unfortunately they did not win. But I did grab a few pics of Tre' in action. They also had one game on Sunday at 9.

After the game on Sunday we headed to lunch with Jared's parents and brother and sister because his parents were here visiting for the weekend. While we were at dinner his aunt that was visiting from Ohio called his mom and asked if any of her kids were planning on stopping by great grandma and grandpa's because she would like to see us. So after lunch we headed over there to visit. There were a lot of leaves in the back yard and the boys decided to rake them up for the grandparents. Great Grandpa Baker has a horse that has not been ridden in a long time that I have been working with so I decided since we were there I would go out and check on her. When I walked out this is what I found.

Where is Tre'?

If you look real close you can see his hands and feet. The kids burried him in all of the leaves.

We ended our weekend at grandma and grandpa's and headed home because the work and school week was approaching. We have such busy weeks that I wanted the kids to get some sleep. We attend our basketball practices and our baseball practices, girl scouts, hip hop dance class and probably a few other things in between. Bo and Nicole were headed up north on Friday so they asked if they could take the kids. I picked Cordd and Chloe up from the baby sitter on Friday and brought them to my house and packed Tucker and Tatum because they are the only ones that were going to go. Tre' was invited to his friend Clayton's birthday party on Friday and stayed the night. While Cordd was at my house he decided he wanted to hold our snake. Go figure, he is deathly afraid of a fly, but this his how he feels about our snake.

Later that night our friends Jackie and Jeremy came out to stay with us and hang out. We have not seen them in what feels like forever. Their daughter Jada decided it would be fun to climb in the dog's kenel. I was not fast enough to get a picture of her completely in the kenel. She was all the way in and tried to close the door. We miss the little moments at our house because ours grown. But it is sure fun to borrow everyone else's little ones for a while.

On Saturday we went to some friend's house and watched the UFC fights. It was a few couples from the ward. It was great fun and we came a way with a little blackmail from everyone. We finished our weekend by attending a meeting with Tre' at church. He will be 12 next month and will become a deacon. He is growing way to fast. It was such a great feeling to be there with him and feel the spirit. He will be a great example for his friends and brother and sister. He is already a great example to his brother and sister and such a great kid. I thank my stars everyday that he has his head on straight. I pray that it will stay that way.

Well I started a post a few nights ago or maybe it was a week ago. Anywho, I have not yet finished it because I have lots of pictures to add and lots to catch upon. Well, my laptop decided to take a crap and everything I own is on it. This happened to me once before, you would have tought I would have learned to back everthing up the first time, but nope I did not. So now I have to wait for someone to fix it, if it can be fixed. If not then I have to figure out how to get all my good stuff off, ie: lots and lots of pics., tax files, Itunes music and many other valuable items. Hope a good fairy comes down and takes care of it so it is up and running soon. I will be so sad to loose my pics.
