Ohhh my goodness!! This video is SOO funny. Maybe it's a 'you just had to be there moment' but I totally have to share it anyway.
Glenn had a game night/b-day party the other weekend. We had our friends, Alan and Lisa over and the kids had a couple friends from school come over.
I don't know who started this, but, someone thought it would be fun to run from my family room and slide in my was a contest to see who could go the farthest. Tori, Nick and Alan were the ones having a grand ol' time and we had a blast watching them. At one point I sprayed pledge on a rag and wiped the hardwood floor down, in hopes that would speed them up. It was funny watching them almost biff it.
Sorry the video is sideways, I can't figure out how to turn it the right way!! SO sit back and tilt your head :) and hopefully you'll laugh.


So Glenn turned 16 a couple weeks ago. We gave him some choices; Do you want presents to open? OR Do you want to go paintballin' with some friends, all expenses paid?

Can you guess what he chose??
Here they are at the orientation
All ready to go...
from l-r : Big Glenn, Andrew, Tyler, Nick and Glenn
Of course they had NUMEROUS stories to share after and welts to show off. They had a GREAT time! Glenn said this was one of THE BEST b-day presents he's ever got!! YAY!!! I am so glad they had a GR8T time and glad 'dad' got to share it with him.

F O U L ! ! !

Someone's takin' out the keeper!! No fair!!
and look at that HUGE smile on Glennie's face while he's doing it!!!!!

Sweet 16

I can't believe it, my son turned 16.

We had a family birthday party for my niece, Abby and Glenn. Abby's b-day is the 7th and Glenn's is the 10th. It's kinda funny and I hadn't noticed it till now, but Abby was turning 8 as Glennie was turning 16....1/2 the age. I thought that was kinda cool.
So we had a family get together, made spaghetti and meatballs, their favorite, and had cake and ice cream and cream puffs. We did cream puffs/eclairs for Glennie since Sara had cake and ice cream already for Abby.
My not so little boy!! I still can't believe he is 16 now!! Sheeeesshhhhkaaa where does time go??
OK... I had to throw this photo in here. Abby give the BEST looks!!! I'm not kidding you either - she is the best at her looks....I think it's funny... but I'm not her mom!! LOL :) So because she gives such great looks, we just had to wrap her present in a Cat Pan Liner box... I was hoping to get a look to kill... but....
she saw the present in the opening and was relieved not to get plastic bags!! :) She is the cutest thing with the most spit fire attitude ever. She absolutely adores her Uncle Glenn.... it's very cute to watch.
Here's Glenn opening his presents from Jeff and Sara and Oma and Pampa. He scored big and went shopping already. He got 2000 paint balls for his paint ball gun. All he wanted from Glenn and I, was for him and some friends to go paint balling at a paint ball place. Hopefully I'll be brave enough to stick around there and take some photos.

High Adventure

Glenn and Glennie went on the High Adventure trip with Glennie's scout troop. They went canoeing on the Gunnison River outside Grand Junction. Here's some photo's of their trip.
All packed and ready to go
Loading up at the church
This was Josh Miller and Robert Jones' tent - like 15 feet from the train tracks
I guess trains went through at night and Glennie never woke up.... his new nickname is
"Sleepy Hollow"
1st day on the canoes
The other canoes and the river
Wow...imagine that. The boys found a scorpion!!
Big Horn sheep
They went hiking one day and found these waterfall/swimming pools
Mushroom Rock
Glenn climbed to the top to look down
Nature's beauty
More waterfalls and pools
Fun in the river
Glenn went on a hike and took this photo from uptop a montain. This is their camp spot
