Today was ETC's 3rd jelly roll race! Here is the store sample I made, we've done a different pattern each time and I think this one is my favorite! We have fun at this class, it's serious business getting everyone prepped until the music for the kentucky derby comes on and we say Ready SET GO!

What a great way to cool off in Az with ice cream! I went to watch the boys at their swimming lessons again and we just happened by their frozen yogurt shop on the way back! Yummmm! I love watching what toppings they want to put on theirs....me...I go for anything chocolate, and maybe a free strawberries on top! It was fun to hear the tales of their first day of school! I love these short little catch up times with my boys!

Life is pretty good already with the addition of little Brock! He's doing great, chills out pretty well as you can see. His Daddy is enjoying a few days off to enjoy his new son!

Ken and I got to go to swimming lessons last week. It was so fun to see
Ethan and Garrett and Aiden working so hard at their lessons! Amy somehow got them all in at the same time! whew! They have such a great pool 5 minutes from their house. Such nice small little classes scattered everywhere...everything seemed calm and well organized....little signs up saying it's the dolphins or whatever level...and I guess that's a big deal, the boys tell you exactly what level they are in! Ethan after his lesson....

Well here we are in the time of year we all love since for once we see clouds, maybe hear thunder and at least have something different than sunshine. I know for you living where it snows that sounds crazy but I thought I'd just show you what happens around here when we get a huge dust storm. They've been coming pretty often, some nights we get just some wind, some times dirt blowing and then 10 drops of rain, this week we got a good one, huge dust storm, the kind you can hardly see thru and then gushing rain for quite a long time. I had over an inch in a bucket out in the yard so I know none of it was run off. Here is what it does to the pool.....the cleaner was trying! I started the massive clean up in the yard while it was still sprinkling and thundering once the heavy rain quit. Lots of branches down, everything on the patio was blown to the west fence, big big mess! I saved the pool and patio until the next morning since it was dark. More hours spent trying to get the pool cleaned up, it had tried over night but it wasn't so good. After a total brushing and running 6 more hours it looks good again. After running again last night I can still tell it needs another brushing today but that will have to wait until after work. Amazing how much dirt there is, every surface outside had that dirt on it. One more patio to clean off yet...probably in time for another one tonight! The one that came thru last night just made it windy, we didn't get the dirt, that stayed over in Phx.!

Baby Brock got to come home! Pretty fast for a c-section baby! His numbers for jaundice were back in the normal range so they released he and Mommy and the trek began!
I picked Bode up from playing with Aiden, Garrett and Ethan and away we went to the hospital....mostly so he could see Mommy and also to deliver Brocks car seat. Bode was very excited so we only stayed a few minutes and home we went for more food, bath and bedtime. He fell fast asleep with songs then so you know he'd had a huge day playing with his cousins! He was fast asleep before the new arrival appeared!
Chris and I had fun having to change him right after his arrival since he'd peed thru his outfit already! Then the routine begins....get the clean diaper under them and before you even have it on they poop! Then you roll them over to get the wet jammie out and they pee off to the side wetting the new jammie, the blanket and a towel..... we were all laughing so hard....half a load of laundry and he hadn't even been home 15 minutes!
So the adventure begins! Hope the first night went well, they have Grammy chicken noodle soup and tortilini salad fixins ready to go in their fridge, so I'm off to work!
What a cute little frown at the flash! Brock welcome home!

Aiden cooked dinner on friday night and invited us over! How cute is that...when you are 8 that's what you do! Amy is teaching them all to cook so Aiden picked this great chili recipe out of the "childrens cookbook" they have and did all the prep in the morning for it!

Here are a few more photo's of our newest little Brock. Life was a bit nuts that day so we really didn't get much time to take many photo's while we were there so another day it'll happen! Chris text me moments after he was born that he was there safe and sound, then a few more minutes and I got this picture... my first peak at our newest Grandson, Chris text me this one ... I was home with Bode and boy were the text messages flying from family members asking what I'd heard, since we knew the C-section was scheduled for 8:00 AM.
Next came this cute little shot! How wonderful to get to see him so soon! I love technology!
Here is Bode in his Big Brother tshirt ready to go to the hospital to meet him!
Little Brock we are so glad you are here safe and sound! We've been so anxious to meet you! We can't wait to hold you and play with you and share all the fun we have with your brother and all your cousins! We have enough for a basketball team and 1 alternate! You are going to fit right in Brock, what fun we will have! You are just so cute, we just need some time to rock and cuddle!

We had our 3rd class in our Holly Jolly series at Scrapbooks today, 8 gals came to make the snowman or tree table mat or treeskirt. Kathy brought back her first one all done, so cute! This was such a fun one we are going to teach it again this fall if you missed it.
