Star Lighting in Castle Rock

Tonight was the annual Star Lighting on top of "Castle Rock" and it was a beautiful night for it. It's the kick off to the HOLIDAY SEASON and no one wants to miss it. Clancy's and the Osborn's all went and we had a great time!!

Everyone downtown Castle Rock

Kyle,Nick and AJ

Yes...Santa made an appearance and Hayden still isn't so fond of him so that is why I joined him in the photo. Well...not to mention I DO have a few things on my list. Haha!!

After the lighting everyone (19 of us) headed to dinner and to celebrate Gwen's birthday. Happy Birthday....we had a great time.
(Sorry I dont have a picture of the star...but I couldnt get a clear picture)

Season is over!!!

Tonight Hayden and only a few boys from his soccer team met for pizza and to get their trophies. These boys and 5 others have been playing since they were 3yrs old. What a great bunch of kids and WOW can they play. They will continue to stay together as the "Sharks"

Racing in AZ!!!

So Justin and I enjoyed a GREAT trip to AZ this past weekend. We not only enjoyed some GREAT Mexican food(a must since Colorado is lacking in that department BIG TIME), visiting family(thank you Bryan and Dawn for meeting up with us...glad we were able to see you both and Lily) and we also went to the Nascar Race at PIR. I've been before but this was a first for Justin. What a crowd that place brings on....I'm not so sure how to even put it in words. Our best friends from here also went to AZ for the race. So it was fun having friends with us.
Justin booked us at the Fairmont Scottsdale..AKA Scottsdale Princess and it was AMAZING!!
Thank you, Happy Anniversay and I love you!!

Check-up time...Round 2

Yes....Round 2 was today but now it was AJ's turn. WOW, 10yrs old!! AJ's visit went really good and for the first time I actually waited outside the room. Haha, but I understood!!
AJ is 67.2lbs(45%)
53 1/4 in = 4 1/2ft(25%)
The doctor can see that he is very active and doesnt have an ounce of fat on him. He still seems to be a bit smaller but not by much at all.
(AJ...waiting to be seen...oh I was allowed in for just a bit)

Check-up time..Round 1

Yes...The 5yr check-up was today and Hayden did great. A few new things compared to years past. They checked his eyes and I actually had to leave cause he was making me laugh. The concentration in his eyes was just so dang cute.
He was 40.6 lbs (50%)
41.5 in tall = 31/2ft (25%)
My little man is getting big but still hasnt hit the 50% in height yet. So when compared to his older brother Hayden weighs a tiny bit more, but AJ was a bit taller. I say ...pretty equal! Hayden was the tiny one but has caught up pretty good. Best part for him was
