Well, it has been a very stressful couple of weeks at the West house. We have been working the girls to death with extra practices at nights and on the weekends and it paid off this year. They both made the volleyball teams. Very rough tryouts since we do not have a gym this year with the roof collapse so they are working out in the 110 degree heat. We are so proud of their diligence and know that the season is going to be so much fun for them to share together..

Back To School They Go

Patrick is totally eating up the excitement of his first week in school. I volunteered to be the homeroom Mom(shoot me now)and I am the PTO President so I am at the school a lot. He also got voted in as a class rep for student council. Another politician in the works! The girls decided that they would wait until the second week of school to be photographed??

School Is Absolutely Out

So we decided that some craft projects would be a great way to start the summer off. My girls are very responsible and with me only feet away, what could possibly go wrong. Well, lets just say that things can go wrong within seconds and now my kitchen counter has a burn hole in it. Gotta love them!! I will not say which lovely child broke my beautiful home, but at this point I really wished we had upgraded to tile counter tops when we had the chance. Guess what we will be doing next???

Spring Hike in Arizona

Lauren's Chimp Project

Great work on your project. The art portion was fun and turned out awesome.

The Best Birtday Present

Not only did my kids have fun on Easter the high of the candy carried over to my birthday the next day. Good thing because the flu got me good. What a memory!


With only a few tears shed, our baby girl has entered the life of womanhood. What a blessing!!! And so it all begins. She is so lucky to have a big sister and a Mom who understands hugs and lots of chocolate.

Mom & kiddos out for a day at the movies

We had a great day at together seeing the movie "Race to Witch Mountain". The kids took some friends, ate too much popcorn and treats. What else could they ask for during their spring break? They already live in Arizona!

Family Bowling Night

This was a fun time for our family. Dad was finally off after a lot of overtime and he waxed us at the lanes. Must be all that bowling he does on facebook.

Patrick Takes Pinewood Derby 2009

It was an awesome night for Dad and Patrick. Their car was unbeatable and red in honor of the Arizona Cardinals. Thank goodness the car had a bit more luck this year! Lots of fun and memories for the big and little guy in our family.

The Amazing Lauren

This was a project that brought back many wonderful memories of our life with our amazing Lauren Nicole. Each year the 6th graders have to put together a collage. We knew just what to do since we just did it with Amanda last year.
