I don't blame her...wish I could have curled up with her and done the exact same thing!!!

Jaden got to hang out with our friends Tony and Samantha Fri. night and of course had a great time and got spoiled a little in the process. They came over to get her Fri. night and gave her three options for the evening...shop at Justice, play put-put golf, or go to build-a-bear. She says she did eny-meny-miny-mo to make her decision, but really she's a little shopper so we all knew they would end up at Justice. So to sum it up, Joe had a terrible night sleeping outside, I got my packet ready to turn in Sat. morning and got some other stuff done while I had some free time, and J had a great time...until Sat. morning that is when she had to get up a little after 6 am. She is definitely not a morning person and was certainly no ray of sunshine. We made it by our deadline though and she came back home w/Joe. Then it was up to me to stand in line for 3 hours with my fingers crossed hoping they still had a spot when I got up there. Luckily there were four 2nd and 3rd grade spots left, so we're good for another year!!! Joe got a little rest then we headed out for a soccer game. Our team played pretty well...Jaden not so much. She says it's because she was too tired to play...hopefully next weekend she can get in all of her beauty sleep before game time. Here are a couple of pictures from the game on Sat...only one more to go in case you're tired of looking at soccer pictures!!!

Here's where we are now...better watch out Mammaw, if she keeps eating like she is now she may catch you pretty soon!!!
We're heading into a free weekend around here...no soccer or anything we have to do anyway, although I'm sure J is making plans for us already. She is pretty excited about not being so busy and getting to invite a friend over...plus I'm pretty sure she's added the Hannah Montana movie to the agenda. Guess we'll just play it by ear and see what happens.

Here are a few pictures from our Easter. Thanks to Becca for posting pictures and details on her blog of all the fun you guys had...I probably won't let J look at that for a while!!! Hopefully we'll see you guys soon. Give Cody some big hugs from us when you all see him. Love you all and Happy Easter.

Well, I decided to try and video a soccer game...not as easy at it might sound, especially with the small hand held video camera I have and strong winds. Anyway, it is a pretty long video so don't feel like you have to watch all of it, maybe someday I'll get all fancy and figure out how to edit and just put in the parts I want. I tried to be extremely quiet during the filming of this video because nothing ruins a good video like the sound of my voice!!! I'm sure J didn't mind that I wasn't yelling and drawing her attention away from the game. The main highlight is toward the beginning where Jaden scores a goal for our team. I didn't do a very good job of getting her and the goal in the video at the same time, but it was my first try after all people. This is the only goal for our team during this quarter, but of course I got great shots of the other team scoring three goals...hopefully it will work out better next time!!!
Well guess I'd better go figure out some Easter plans for us. It will be our first Easter here by ourselves and not spending it with family either in Oklahoma or the panhandle...so no one will be doing the cooking for me this year...unless I can talk Joe into it. Steaks could be the new Easter meal I'm thinking!!!

Except before we get rid of them I have to cut the "feet" off of her tennis shoes. These are earned by running a certain amount of miles in PE at school and apparently it would be horrible if they were to make an exit with the shoes. J has told me she is going to keep them in her "secret" box our friend Sylvia brought back from Budapest for her. It has a secret compartment in which to keep stuff. Although I wouldn't exactly call it a secret around here because if you visit us one of the first things she will show you is the box and how to get to the secret compartment!!! I'm thinking the only real way she is going to keep her stuff in this box a secret is going to be keeping the box somewhere in her room...now that place could use some spring cleaning!!!
I wouldn't feel too bad for J or think that she may be going barefoot anytime soon. She still has a closet full of shoes to choose from. They are organized for now and you can find a match...check back in a week though, and I'm sure we'll be right back to where we started!!!

Jaden had another soccer game Monday night...it was none of the things that Saturday was. It was COLD...I hate cold. On top of being cold, the wind was blowing 40 mph. There is nothing to block the wind at the soccer fields. I cannot imagine how hard it is to run with all that cold air filling your lungs. Plus every time the ball got kicked out of bounds...it really went out of bounds. There was no stopping it with the wind the way it was. Monday was a miserable day, but these little girls still got out there and did everything they could to get that ball where they needed it to go. They should get an award for all their effort...I should get an award for staying out there the whole time watching!!!

We started off with some fake animals...just to get used to the idea...plus it looked like fun.

We're getting ready for round two of visitors. Sandie and Corkey and little Miss Hope will be heading our way later this afternoon. I can promise clean sheets since Mom washed them before she left Sunday...but that's about all. Guess I should have gone ahead and cleaned the bathrooms instead of starting this blog two weeks ago!!! It will be another busy and fun weekend for us, and hopefully I'll get some good pictures to share with you guys. Maybe we should try and keep the streak alive...so I'll be taking reservations for next weekend if any of you are interested.
