in awe.

I am constantly in awe how something like this:

can grow into this so quickly.

Booker is 7 today.  He is truly one special boy.  Each time I look at him in awe of all he does and who he is reminds me what a miracle he is.  7 years ago I sat in a hospital bed holding him.. not quite sure what I was suppose to to do things just the right way. Booker has taught me how to be a mother. He has helped shape me into a better person..taught me to look at life with a grateful and detailed eye..and has shown me how to enjoy the simple things. His LOVE and ZEST for life is contagious. I am constantly saying that if I moved around and enjoyed my life as Booker does NOTHING COULD STOP ME!  He is one incredible kid and I feel SO blessed to have him in my life.

Booker at 7:

favorite color:  red, green and pink
favorite food:  peanut butter and jelly
favorite animal: zebra
favorite movie:  Star Wars
favorite place to eat out:  McDonald's
favorite subject in school: art
favorite activity:  play with Bob (his LARGE stuffed dog)
favorite sport: basketball and soccer
favorite team:  Arizona Cardinals (because they have a red bird.)
favorite basketball player:  Jimmer Fredette
goals to accomplish when 7:  learn to ride his bike, running first 5k, taking over the world.:)

Happy Birthday, Booker!

the football game. boys style.

One of the most enjoyable activities we had when the family was visiting was an impromptu football game played by Booker and Bodhe (his cousin).

The boys were SERIOUS when it came to putting their game together. 

Here is the fly by:

The beginning of the game..Boise St. (Bodhe and brother)
vs. BYU (Booker and Ben)

There were good catches:

Good planning:

Good Defense..or a good attempt:
This was Booker's first try at defense..Ben told him to not let Bodhe get the ball and this was his interpretation.:)

Good Scoring:

and Good Kicking:

Seriously, such a fun time..We laughed and cheered and can't wait till the next time! 

They even had a cheerleader:

She may have been a bit of a downer for that game.:)

I know, I's been forever.  But the upside is that we are all healthy and back into the full swing of life.:)  Have a lot to catch up on..but around here these days you will find Bruiser:

That's what we call him since his trip and fall into one of our side tables.

If you wondered..the side table won.

But he is one tough cookie. Love him.
