Last game, went out with a BANG !

So some of you may remember me blogging last year about the type of league that Bash play soccer for. It's called FFPS which stands for Fun Fair Positive Soccer. Which has its pros and cons. One of the pros is that no one is allowed to yell anything negative at yours or anyone elses child. The con, sometimes you REALLY wanna let em have it, especially when they know they are slacking and you can't tell them anything. Another rule, is a pro and a con, they have a goal limit which is 3, after that you have to pass and not score. Well, this is a pro because you may have a slightly challenged team and an opposing player that scores nonstop, well this rule takes care of that, however, when your child reaches the limit within the first 15 min. of the game, it's kind of a bummer to watch him have to pass the rest of the game.

This was Bash's last game and he was on FIRE!!! He told me on the way to the game:
Bash: "Mom, I know what you and dad want me to do and it's my last game so I'm going to make ya'll proud. I said a prayer and I'm going to use all of the advice you gave me"
I smiled and said ...
Mom:"Just watching you do your best makes us so proud"
Boy was he ever serious about using our advice. He played the best game ever. See for yourselves!

We're just here for the snacks, but "Go Bash" On fire Ok this is a sweet Zidane move he learned from, you guessed it, his ole mama. You step on the ball with one foot, then pivot/turn and land with the opposite foot on top. I taught him the Sunday before his game and he practiced all week and NAILED IT! No pressure
Took it right in the gut and still scored Sweet shot!!! Did it go in you wonder? Yeah like 5 times, he was over his goal limit by the second period
Tony was a big help and allowed me to focus all my attention on Bash She was so proud of her big brother, plus sucking up to get some of his post game snacks!

Girls Rule and Boys Drool...

Who can play and play and play ALL DAY? These two ! Boy they've worn me out.
High Five , with a twist
drive through...... "May I help you" One of the few times, he let me snap a pic

Resting on the Sabbath

These girls had no idea what kind of week I had in store for them. So, I'm glad they got to rest.

The Woodlands- Market Street Shopping !
Oh Yeah, these girls shopped it up in the Woodlands, they played with lip gloss and tried on clothes, shoes, hats, glasses, you name it. They did a great job while I tried on every maternity item Gap had to offer. They were having a 40% off the sale price, so I went crazy! My cutest purchase by far were these for Mia and Beckham's little outfits.
Eating Trying on gloss
Super Jane Fonda lookin

FHE- Roller Box
We were inspired to make this roller box at the open house of our new church building. In the primary room , they had an example of one on a much larger scale, so we scaled it down to a jello box and tied in a lesson about the Holy Spirit.
Girls coloring away, NOT Really! cut out out a 2 x 2 1/2 in. rectangle
color all strips cut and tape in order wrap in foil, ours is messy but the kids did a great job add pencils and tape ends of strip to each pencil and "ROLL" away

Cutesie Tootsies

Who wants a Pedicure? Oh these girls just ate it up! They were little divas ready to get their "pedi" on. This was Mia's first time ever getting her toes painted, so considering, she did pretty good, until she wiped out a toe getting in the carseat. Sicily on the other hand, is a pro cause her mommy paints her toes all the time.
Mia being an outdoorsy sorta gal, needed a little more work than Sicily Adding the sparkles

Sicily just needed a little touch up Trying to convince them she was badly in need of a "mani" And Voila! Cutesie Tootsies!

Grandma and Grandpa Alaniz's visit

Does it look like Grandpa Joe's visits make my kids happy? You be the judge

Grandpa taught Mia to make a new face, and whenever he wasn't paying enough attention to her, she'd run up to him and make it. It never get's old!
I hate bedtime, when Grandpa's here!
