Too Cute Not to Share

Sam and Josey sitting on the couch. Aren't they adorable!

Matt and Sam sporting their Husky outfits before the season opener. The Huskies lost that won but we got a win last weekend.

Desert Canyon

Matt and I spent last weekend with our friends Brett and Michelle at the Desert Canyon golf resort in Eastern Washington. We bid on this package at the Boys and Girls Club auction earlier this year. It was a two night stay in the Penthouse Suite, four rounds of golf, and $100 at the restaurant. The guys golfed twice and Michelle and I hung out at the pool. We had a great deck overlooking the golf course and the weather was beautiful.

Abby's 7th Birthday

Abby turned 7 on September 8. She had her birthday party at the skating rink here in Lynden and invited a bunch of girls from school and some neighbors. It was so much fun. She also had a family party at our house.

She wanted a Blackberry pie as her dessert.

Kiley, Emilyn, Abby, Matt, and Faith hitting the rink.

Girls in Abby's 1st grade class. Abby, Arianna, Lucy, Kiley, and Katie.

The girls we so cute. As soon as Abby started opening gifts all of the girls crowded around her wanting her to open theirs next.

Blowing out the candle.

Family Photos

Here are a few of the pictures that Becky took for us. If you would like to see more of them I can forward you the shutterfly album. She did a great job.

The Day After

Abby had a quiet evening at home last night. One of the neighbor girls (who happened to be in the waiting room at the Doctor's office when we brought Abby in) came by with a get well gift. She had made her a card and bought her some note pads, a stuffed animal, a movie, and some otter pops. It was so sweet, thanks Paige! When she was going to bed Abby said to me that she liked having a fat lip. When I asked her why her response was, "Because I get to eat a lot of candy." I guess that was true because in the few hours since the accident all she had eaten was a few popsicles and a milkshake! This morning she woke up still pretty swollen and I think she will end up with a black eye. I took a couple more pictures. Even got her to smile in one of them.

You Should Have Seen the Sidewalk!

We started out on a bike ride this afternoon but did not get very far. Abby fell off her bike and landed face first on the sidewalk. It was quite traumatic. Once we got home Abby's lip and cheek were very swollen. I called the Dr. and decided to take her in. They got her all cleaned up and said that she was very lucky that she did not knock any teeth out or break her cheek bone. It ended up just being a bad case of road rash. Here is a picture of her after we got back from the Doc's.
She had a milkshake for dinner and I rented her a movie. Poor kid.
