They are called the Green Alligators. The team includes Griffin and Gannon, and cousins, Demi Dykstra, Lane Dykstra, Trey Bosman, and 2nd cousin Ryan Levein and some other kids! We actually don't have Trey anymore because he broke his arm this week :(

Last night right after we put the kids to bed we looked out our window and saw two deer eating the apples on the ground around our apple trees in the back yard.
So we let Griffin and Gannon get up to see them... They were trying to sneak up on them, but the deer ran away. Maybe someday they will be tame :)
And our little dear Tyra! 5 1/2 months old! She is getting so big... rolls all over and scoots around. I don't think it will be long before she is crawling! Part of me is excited and happy and part of me is sad that my baby is growing up so fast. However, I feel like I know so many people that are pregnant right now... and I am DEFINATELY happy I am not in that stage of my life anymore!
She is really into her feet and toes and shoes right now, and wants everything in her mouth! She absolutely LOVES real food! Cannot get enough of it!
She hasn't had an ear infection in over 3 weeks... I should knock on wood right now b/c she has been sneezing the last couple of days... and if it is actually a cold, more than likely it will turn into an ear infection! But I am keeping my fingers crossed and praying about it lots. She is still super easy going and does great in her carseat which she is in a lot of the time with having to run to school, soccer, and errands. Can't believe soon she will be 1/2 a year old! Weeks are flying by!

Gannon and Griffin put on their football pads and gloves to practice their football skills. Grant made them give me their mean faces! They are loving all the football stuff, all the boys got to go to the LC Sehome game at Civic field on Friday night and thought that was great! They play tackle and football a lot at home, even though they just had their first soccer practice today. Next year Griffin will get to choose, soccer or football, and I have a feeling it will be football. I can't forget to leave Grant out in all this football talk... he is SO EXCITED for this coming Sunday, the first Giant's game! He had to go buy an apple I pad so he can sit in the lazy boy with his I pad, checking his fantasy football all the while he is watching the Giant's game on the big screen and watching the "other teams" on the kitchen tv that he can see from the lazy boy! I guess there are far worse things he could be addicted to. :)
Grandpa Rick and Grandma Deba stopped over this weekend and grandpa started this "throwing the boys onto the trampoline thing" which they can't get enough of! I had to snap some pictures because the sky was so blue and it was "kind of" warm and sunny. Gotta get out while we can before the cold wet winter comes! This one is of Gannon
Even Grandpa looks a little scared about the landing!
