200th Post!

Can you believe that my computer won't accept any new photos? Apparently the memory is full, and I don't know how to fix this. So I will post some pics taken back in April at Camden's swim meet. My friend took these, and they turned out beautiful.

This is Camden's heat at the start. She is the one with her legs and arms all over the place. I love it! She generates so much energy on her push off that she can't control herself!


Oh, Peej...he's so patriotic!

Home Run Hitter!

Well, my Brooksee finally went deep, hit a dinger, a homer, a four-bagger, a bomb, a solo home run! He told me on the Friday before his tournament in Tampa to make sure and video all of his at bat's over the weekend, because he was going yard. Did I do it? Nope. But I will never forget watching him connect on the first pitch of his at bat and knowing immediately that it was gone! He almost tripped over first base, and legged it out to second, but as he rounded second base he fell into one mighty home run trot. I'm pretty sure he's been practicing that in his head for ages. I am so proud!!!

The picture I took after the game. He's pointing to where it went over the fence.


He and his buddy TK pose together. They hit back to back homers on back to back pitches! Lots of excitement for our team!


He is holding his FIRST home run ball. Priceless!!!

Cams & Her Art

We recently received exciting news that Camden's art was on display at the local bank. They held an afternoon open house to come and view all the artists on display. They had hors devours from a local restaurant and live music...very swanky! I was excited and proud her work was chosen.

Camden in front of her masterpiece!


Her "paper weaving" piece was the one on the left. Put together, both pieces really looked great!!

Air Peej

Basketball season has begun, and this is the first season that ALL THREE kiddos are playing. Quite a mess to make all the practices and games, but thanks to neighbors, we are doing very well.
Palmer and Camden are playing in the Upward league, which is really neat. In Palmer's very first outing, he had 10 points and played superb defense, and Brooks and Camden were just beside themselves with pride! (I know, he is only 5, but still...what a little Air Peej!)

Look at that shooting form!


I seriously think he's trying to throw that little boy's shot. Sweet!!


This is the pic that made me come up with the nickname, "Air Peej". Look at that serious air he's getting! Why, he's practically jumping out of the gym! (And if you remember anything about my playing days, you'll understand why this seems amazing to me!)

Big Catch!

I figured I'd better update a bit since Halloween was AGES ago...
I had to post this video. Here's the setting: Championship game for the Boys Club League...down by 8...3:30 minutes to go in the game...4TH DOWN AND 7 YARDS TO GO...
video
What a throw...WHAT A CATCH! Triple teamed and everything! They don't connect here, we probably don't come back IN OVERTIME and win the Championship! It was all very exciting, and Tim and I went to bed with smiles on our faces that night. Good times!

Halloween 2010

We had another fabulous Halloween...my parents were here again, the weather was wonderful, and the kids were downright professional trick-or-treaters this year! I loved their costumes, especially Brooks'---he wanted to be an American Indian, and he really looked the part. I need to upload a color photo, but I loved how this one turned out.
Hope everyone had a great Halloween!!

Cute Pics...

Brooks played a baseball tournament in St. Augustine this past weekend. It was a beautiful weekend, and we played at an absolutely gorgeous park. I'm posting a few pics I thought turned out ok...

Here's Brooks at the beach (since we got eliminated early Sunday morning. BOO!!). He plays for the Gainesville Ghosts. And yes, they are burnt orange. Can't seem to get away from that color! ;-)


Camden posed for me over by the park. She's such a good picture taker!


And this has to be my favorite pic. I caught Peej taking in some of the game. He seems to be looking on to his big bro playing first. One day he will be out there!!
