This Weather......

Ummm-mmmmmm I love this cool weather! I could really go for it being in the 70's ALL the time. Even though I am a bit on the cold nature side, I could live in a world that feels like this every morning and then slightly warms up with the suns rays.
It has been a glorious day - I ran, worked out with weights, and went to church! Doug even ran with me!
I am thinking some potatoe soup sounds good!
Anyone have a good recipe?

Random Update - Just to say Hello from Us

Hi Everybody - or at least Barbie ( i know you read these) and it warms my heart because you seem to have such fond memories of your boys and I would like the same one day!

Just a brief update - Our very own Dougie Springer is being casted for Quarterback role on the Jr Pro football team! He was pretty excited to get that news, even though he really wanted to be running back. I think he has tremendous speed but right now he has to concentrate on "beefing" up. He is already eating us out of the house!
Emma is running cross country. eeehhh - she could take it or leave it. Her comment, "it's too much running" I asked her what she thought it would be? haha -
Speaking of running, we held our 2nd annual Bird dog break away this past weekend. The rain stopped for the day, and close to 200 people showed up to run! What a great fund raiser for the Center for New Beginnings - it is our local center to help with autism and general tutoring. Check it out

Lukee poo has been a little under the weather with tonsillitis and recurring fevers, but he is such a sweetie, you would never know he felt bad. He thinks he should get to play football with Dougie. He puts on Dougie's helmet and practice jersey and runs and runs and runs around the house. Reminds me of Forrest Gump. haha

Doug and I are just moving right along as the parents of these three rowdy youngens - and loving every minute of it!

Hope everyone is doing great!
Love to you all!

Dougie - A Growing Boy

One Random Day After School Last Week......

Lori picks kids up from school. We go to the bakery for an after school snack. (Wonderful homemade goodies)

Dougie - Can I get 2 choclate covered donughts?
Lori - No, just 1. 2 has too much sugar.
Dougie - Ok, thank you.

We get home, Dougie ate his donught.

Dougie - Can I have a bowl of cereal now?
(Keep in mind he likes raisin nut bran.)
Lori - Sure, Hey - Did you eat all your lunch today?

Dougie - Yes mam. I ate it ALL. (Turkey sandwich, grapes, chips, and a yoguart)

Dougie eats 2 bowls of cereal.

Dougie - Ok, I'm ready to go to football practice now. :)

This boy is going to eat us out of the house once he really starts growing and hitting those teen years!
