Cap of 2010 Soccer Season

Well soccer season has finally ended. Glad for us as parents now we get our saturdays back but the kids will sure miss it! Both boys did so well this year being their first year. Jayden was named MVP for his team. He sure was the rock for his team. He was so very fast and scored 98% of the goals. Their team ended up undefeated for the season! GO JAYDEN we are so very proud of you! Brigden did about the same. He must of scored at least 10 goals a game. The other kids just let him have the ball most of the time because they knew he was faster than them and would just score! Next fall we are planning on them being on the same team together! Watch out for the smith boys! We are all so very proud of you two and your great talent in sports!!!!

Jaydens Baptism

Jayden turned 8 at the beggining of October and was baptised a member of the church last Saturday October 30th by his dad. He got to be baptised the same day as one of his friends Liam. I thought that I was emotional having him be my first; he was more motional than me. I think he really felt the spirit for the first time that day. We are so proud of him for make this big decision in his life. We are so grateful for Jayden and the example he is to his brothers, sister, cousins and friends. We love you Jayden!

I think I'm a BIG girl

Chazlyn is 6 months old now. She is becoming very active and independent! She just learned to crawl last week and is now pulling herself up on things. She just stays on her knees for now; but it wont be long until she is standing up. Were has the time gone? She is such a joy to have in our crazy family of boys! She is the happiest girl ever and loves her brothers!

Jedi Knights

Jayden is playing soccer this fall for AYSO and their team is called the Jedi Knights. Their first game they won 4-1. Jayden made two of the goals! Did I expect anything less; not really. My boys are always playing with a baseball, football or soccer ball! Brigden also had his first game but their banner was not done yet. So I will post pictures of him next time. His team name is the cheetahs. They also won 22-0! Brigden made about 95% of the goals! Just like his brother. What can I say he has a great example for a big brother! We love both of you boys and are so very proud of your efforts. Go TEAM SMITH!

Dove hunting

September 1st is the date that every dove hunter looks forward too! Especially my husband. He wakes up at 4 in the morning to get to his spot and sits until a half hour before sunrise then he shoots away! Poor birds:( I still dont understand why he doesnt hunt in our back yard; we have tons because of the chickens and there feed. The boys also got to go with dad a couple of times too! They love being with dad; especially when thet get to shoot their bb guns. Anyways this is the recipe that we are trying this year on the barbecue. Looks yummy!

Soccer 2010

Both Jayden and Brigden are in soccer this fall since the city of Gilbert decided not to let outside boundaries play baseball for them this fall. They both are loving it so far. They both have a couple of buddies on their teams. Jaydens team is the Jedi Knights and Brigdens is the Cheetahs. Landen is having a blast practicing with them and playing at the playground during practices.

They were both up at 5:45 a.m. this morning and school doesn't start until 7:40 a.m. Brigden has been watching Jayden play soccer every morning for the past two years; so this morning he finally got to join in the fun! I can't believe how quite my house is this morning; and Landen is so lost!

Mascara Attack!

This is what I found this little one into while I was getting some house work done after being gone in San Francisco. He was sitting in my rocking chair putting on his mascara. Too cute that I had to take a picture. It was sure nice having a break from the boys for awhile! But I still love them! :)

Memory of Joan Carol Mack

This is the view of the cemetery. Beautiful!

Family and close friends carrying her up the hill.

Her Hurst.

Her casket and beautiful flowers.

On Wednesday as I was pulling into the parking lot for a baseball game I got the call that I have been dreading for a few years now. It was a call from my dad saying that my grandma had just passed away. She was diagnosed with small cell cancer almost three years ago and was only given 6 months to live but she lasted almost three years. She was a fighter that was for sure. So my mom left right away while my dad, brothers, I and Chazlyn flew up to San Francisco on Friday. When we arrived on Friday we helped get the house ready for the gathering after the funeral as well as get the funeral preperations all done. The funeral was Saturday at 2:00 p.m. and it was so beautiful. My dad did the ceremony and he did an awesome job. After she was loaded into this old fashion hurst and taken up the hill where we laid her to rest. We then headed to the house to have a celebration of her life. Grandma was 77 years old when she passed away from a heart attack on Wednesday night. She loved baking, cooking, being with family and friends and traveling in their R.V. with her husband of 59 years. The rest of the week we had a great time with Grandpa going to the farmers market, out to eat, going to the beach and traveling to San Francisco twice to SHOP! Fun but exhausting trip. We will miss Grandma greatly; but look forward for Grandpa coming down to spend some time with us, since we usually only got to see them once a year. LOVE you BOTH!

Landen turns 2

Well my third boy turned two yesterday. He is such a fun and entertaining BIG BOY. We call him our little brute! He is short but chunky and strong! He loves to wrestle his brothers and dad. We had his grandparents over for some Reeses ice cream cake from Dairy Queen. Boy was that GOOD! He got his own t-ball set like his bigger brother, clothes, money and a new quad from mom and dad. He is definately in his terrible twos! ATTITUDE! I can definately say he has been such a handful with Chazlyn. Happy Birthday Brute we love you so much!

Pictures of Chazlyn


VERY PROUD DADDY! HE finally got his girl!

Mommy trying to recover. NOT!
Landen loves to try and hold his little sister. I lOVE this picture! :)
Brigden fell asleep with his sister after school the other day. So precious:)
My doctor induced me on Friday night at 9 p.m. since she was giving me such grief. I had been in labor three nights prior to that but nothing strong to keep me in the hospital. He was on call all weekend so he decided what the heck. She would only be 1 day early. They couldn't start the pitocin until 12:30 a.m. due to me having to have antiobitics pumped into my system for 4 hours so really she was born 4 hours after they started it. I went from a 3 to a 6 in 45 minutes then popped my water followed by my BEST FRIEND the epidural; then from a 6 to 10 in no time. She was born at 4:32 a.m. LONG NIGHT and DAY! She weighed 7 lbs. 9 oz. and 19 inches long. She is so petite and tiny. She has been such a joy to our family. She only cries when she is hungry or dirty diaper. She already sleeps 6 hours through the night and she is as cute as ever! What more could you ask for!

For all those that are wondering Chazlyn did arrive this past weekend only one day from her due date. She was 7 pounds 9 ounces and 19 inches long. She arrived at 4:32 a.m. on Saturday the 27th. She has lots of black hair. She is the best baby ever and I thank Heavenly Father everyday for giving her to us. We are having so much fun with PINK and BOWS! The boys just love her and daddy is having the best time with his new little girl! We still can't believe we have a GIRL! I will post pictures soon!

Bridgens 5

Today Brigden turns the big 5 or as he says "one whole hand." We decided to celebrate his birthday last night since dad has to work the late shift tonight. So we went goofy golfing at golfland and then took him to Texas Road House for dinner. The boys got balloons from the balloon guy and while we were singing to Brig while he was on the "bull" of course, he made Brig a birthday hat. He loves it and has been wearing it all day. We are so lucky to have a boy like Brig in our family. He is so fun loving and keeps us on our toes for sure! Happy Birthday Brig we love you so much!

Christmas 2009

I am so sorry that I have not posted for a while but we have had our ups and downs with my pregnancy. More downs than ups but lately things seem to have evened out and she is doing good. It has been poor mom that has been doing the suffering of course. Long story short she has decided to come a little to early and mom is left with taking lots of medicine and exams for it and now I am stuck with a weird rash behind both of my legs that is more painful than itchy from it all. NOT FUN! But here is some of our Christmas pictures. Santa gave the two older boys and WII and Landen got his first scooter, in which he calls his bike. After opening all their gifts at our house we went over to my parents and had another Christmas practically. The two older boys got these really cool remote control cars and guns and Landen got his ELMO. Marley of course got her holiday necklace and lots of treats. We hope that 2010 brings more joy and happiness to our family.
