Girl's soccer game

Bella and I officially live at the soccer field here... Today was the girls soccer game and Lance, Bella and I decided to go. Bella loves to be outside crawling around in the grass so it actually is really nice. Everybody loves seeing her there and she loves all the attention she gets. She's a popular one around here :)

How do I customize my blog so it's not BLA?

I would appreciate any advice and help I can get. I can't seem to figure out how all you people have cute backgrounds and mine is so stupid.... Ok thanks


BYU Hawaii won their first game tonight! They played Sanoma State last week and lost, but it was just an exhibition game so it doesn't even go on their record. Tonight they played Chico State and it went into overtime. BYU won 2-1. It was an awesome game. I'm so proud of Lance. He kicks major butt out there. Go baby!!! Bella had her first pigtails in tonight for daddy. She was cheering him on the whole game. She'd yell "Daaaaa" We sure love our daddy and all his hard work in all areas of life :) We're off to Maui for a tournament next weekend! I'm so excited! (as you can see I'm not much of an action shot picture taker. I'll get better as the season goes on)

Bella, Abish and Daddy's sandcastle

Abish is Bella's good friend who lives in our apartment building. She loves playing with him. They worked hard together to build this big huge tall sandcastle... of course with a little help from Daddy :)

MMMM.... Spaghetti

I think I've deprived Bella of being able to enjoy her baths up until now. I have always sat in the bath with her cause I didn't want her to drown or stand up or ya... just call me a paranoid mother. So like a month ago I decided that since she's almost one she's big enough to take her own baths. She loved it! And she didn't drown :) But last night I decided to let her try a bubble bath. She couldn't stop saying "BU Bu, Bu bu" for bubble. She was hillarious! I never knew bath time could be so much fun.

I thought I'd bring my camera to one of Lance's practices so everybody could see how we have spent most of our days this last week. Bella and I go to pretty much all of his practices just so she can watch daddy and crawl around the grass. It's pretty fun. Bella LOVES soccer balls. She'll crawl wherever she has to to get one. Her favorite part though is stretching with daddy after he's all done.

It's when you don't have something that you really miss it...

I have to say that I have taken the best husband in the world for granted this last little bit. I have been spoiled through the summer to have him helping me out with EVERYTHING. With Bella, with laundry, with cleaning the house, just with everything. He's the BEST! Last week he started soccer training... He's been playing anywhere from 5 to 8 hours a day. Insane! Bless his heart, inbetween practices he just comes home and crashes, so this last week I have really missed spending time with him. It was funny he made the comment the day before his 3-a-days started " I don't know if I really want to put my body through this agian, I'm getting old" :) He had his first game on Thursday and played Sanoma State who is ranked #1 in their conference. It was a good game. They lost 2-1, but played awesome especially since the morning of their game was the first time the players EVER played together. This will be Lance's last soccer season and we're excited. The team is looking really good. They've brought a whole bunch of new recruits that I think will be awesome. GO LANCE! GO SEASIDERS!

Our kayaking adventure

A few of our friends decided that they wanted to Kayak out to an island and invited us to go. I was very sketchy about going, first of all because I am not too fond of the ocean and second of all because why if I was afraid would I want to put my precious little Bella out in the middle of the ocean on a kayak? Well with some peer pressure and a husband who REALLY wanted to go, I gave in and went. It was ok. That's about all. I didn't enjoy the 30 minute kayak trip to the island, Bella hated her life jacket so it made it even worse with her freaking out the whole time, but once we got there it was pretty fun. Bella's little friend Kali was there too and they played so cute together. All the guys went spear fishing, a few of them caught some fish. Aaron caught a nasty octopus and as you can see by the pictures there was no fear with handling it at all. SICK! Kali and Bella crashed on the beach for about an hour. They were troopers seeing how we were out there from about 10am to 4pm. I was informed that there had been a shark attack right where we were about 3 weeks ago so... the kayak trip back was even worse than the one there. I think it was cause I was so tired and so was Lance and he had to paddle all by himself and the waves were bigger and it just seemed to be a little more intense not to mention I was thinking about sharks the whole time. Sorry Lance for my freaking out the whole time... We made it back safe I was very grateful. I don't think I will be doing that one again. Once was good enough for me :)

More of the adventure...

My belly

Here are just a few pictures Lance took yesterday. I am 22 weeks and feel like I am ten times huger than when I was pregnant with Bella. I guess that's what happens with the second child. I don't even want to imagine what the 3rd will be like...

We're back!

It's been a while since I've posted pictures. Not because I've been lazy, but because as you already know when we were in Maui our camera broke. It took us this long to get another one. We decided to get a video camera that takes still pictures too so it's really nice. I love it. Anyways... Bella is getting bigger everyday. She is doing so much sign language and is actually starting to talk. She of course says mom and dad and her newest words are grandma and grandpa (she loves saying grandpa, she LOVES her grandpa) dog, cat, fish, and tickle tickle which is my favorite. She is becoming more and more stubborn and knows when she is doing something wrong, but still does it anyway... It's hard for me not to laugh at her. She'll tell herself AH-AH when she knows what she is doing is wrong like what Lance and I do to her, but she will still go ahead and play in the drawers, mess with the xbox, knock over our fans, and the thing I hate the most, pull her bows off her head. Stinker butt! I love her more than anything though. She's still my little angel
