Davin's 13 - I have 3 teenagers now - HELP!

Happy 13th b-day Davin! We sang happy birthday and Eleni promptly blew out the candles for him! She just got so excited!
Davin chose to not have a birthday party and receive $200 from us instead. He bought himself a laptop. He has been saving so he didn't even have to use any of his birthday money.
Nash loves Davin even though he's going to be 1/2 of Davin's weight soon. It's pretty funny to see him carry him around. Davin weighs in at a hefty 77 pounds (I think I have been stealing his poundage). The law in Ohio says that you are supposed to be in a car seat until 80 pounds. Could you seriously see me pulling up at the junior high or his club soccer practice and having him get out of a carseat!!! You would not believe how much this kid eats!

Baking Cookies

There's nothing like baking cookies in your church dress while feeding the dog flour! It is always an adventure when Eleni is over and she always says something hilarious. I finally have HELP in the kitchen. Kenzi loves to cook and she made most of the cookies! Yes!

Halloween pics with the Corsons

A dog is a much better companion than 3 older brothers who have no patience with an annoying little sister! These 2 have a special bond!Kenzi went from princesses to wanting to be a Ninja and a fascination with Ninjas. She's kind of at a weird age right now because she still loves attention, but she isn't getting all the attention she used to get as a toddler. I love having Eleni here so she has to act more like a big sister which has been really good for her. I was worried that she was going to be the spoiled baby of the family forever!

Elvis is in the building band season 2010

Centerville placed 12th at Nationals! Yeah! It was especially fun because Boyce and I left the other 2 kids at home and spent a weekend together watching the older boys!

This was the BEST part of band season. Bryce and Kaid were able to enjoy a year of high school together and they had a blast. Everyone knows the Fish boys because they were cute and always chilling with t

Like I said, the boys were always around girls. One of the cabinet moms told me the story of how Bryce's uniform is ALWAYS the last one in the closet. One day she told another mom, "Bryce is the only one not dressed yet. He's probably out hugging another girl." When they went to go find him, that's exactly what he was doing! The boys are particularly fond of these 2 girls. :)

We had a blast with the Elvis theme this year! The kids did a lot of dancing!
Kaid made the cymbal line and loved it! He won a rookie of the year award!

The New Diamond Back

Kings Island Rocks! The new Diamond Back has a big drop and is a smooth ride! I loved it after I got over the first hill - Davin informed me that I am now a screamer!

Marching band groupies on the road again

Kaid made one of the two cymbal spots for freshman this year. He's happy to be marching and enjoying the time with Bryce in the band. Many parents have asked if the boys fight because their siblings do. Luckily, my boys have developed a better relationship than they have ever had - it might have something to do with them both hanging out with all the girls every chance they get! I'm enjoying Bryce playing taxi for his little brother also!
We have started another season of marching band, but this year Bryce is a senior and boy do the parents go all out. We have so many senior dinner things going on for band - it's great. Here Bryce is with some fellow tuba players. The show theme is the "icon of Elvis" so if anyone has any good, cheap gift ideas let me know. We love watching all the shows during band season, and I'm not handling my son being a senior very well. It really does go by too fast!

Cooking with Kenzi for her 8th bday

Kenzi wanted to have a cooking party, so of course I went crazy and had a blast putting it together. I made 20 six inch cakes for the girls to decorate. I sure wish I had a double oven! They loved learning how to frost them and using bags of icing with different tips.
I made all of the girls these little cookbooks!
Kenzi LOVES being the center of attention!

They decorated their own aprons!
Making pizzas....YUM! Boyce was in charge of this and so the pizzas were a little large for the girls. He's used to boy-sized portions! They turned out great though.
