un-tidy josephs.

tonight was sloppy joe night.

or, untidy josephs as uncle matt calls them.

ryan has informed me that he looovvves sloppy joes.

"i wish we could have sloppy joes all the days".


"i wish we could have sloppy joes every day."

p.s. the williams sonoma website has the best recipe for untidy josephs.

birthday baseball game.

take me out to the ball game.

take me out to the crowd.

buy me some peanuts
and cracker jacks
i don't care if we ever get back.

so it's root, root, root for the rays.
if they don't win it's a shame.
for it's one. two. three strikes you're out
at the old ball game.

happy 4th birthday ryan!

to her brother.

happy birthday ryan!

love, ella.

tales from the soccer field.

friday was his first soccer game.

with the game on friday & his birthday saturday,

he has hardly been able to contain himself.

he was telling everyone he met.

"it's my birthday, and i get to play soccer tonight!"

he and his best bud, lucas, were rough and tumble.

his tounge was hanging out the whole night...

a sure sign he is working hard.

of course,they even had their own cheering section.

i think the first soccer game was a success!

now on to the birthday.

she did very well.

somehow i think she will get more out of this than just learning to ride a horse ;)
