BULLDOGS WIN!!!!!!!!!!!

The Mighty Bulldogs of Kenosha have won!!! We defeated Lake Villa Timber Wolves on saturday. It was an awesome game as the whole team showed up to play. Our offensene stepped up huge with two touchdowns. As proud as we were of the offense for scoring, of cousre I have to give major props to the BIG "D" for the shut out.
I was a nervous wreck as usual. Jase (The Doctor) has been moved to D Line. He has his daddies hitting ability but lacks the ability to decide whether to hit this guy or that guy. They would really like him to play LB because he will knock anyone he dosen't care about size. The game wasat a crutual point at the end of the half Lake vila was out of time outs and the clock was winding down. 10..9...8...7...Snap. It was 4 and GOAL!!! on the 1yrd line. I was sure that they would score and tie it. Any way back to SNAP they handed off and the D LINE plugged the hole and Miles and one of the other LB made a perfect hit..............END of the Half with No score. HUGE HIT BY THE WHOLE D.

He loves D Line now his big accomplishment he hit a guy and pancaked a guy the poor little kid was crying and had to leave the field for a couple series. I feel bad for the kid but Love that JASE can hit!!!!!!!!!!

I love this game, just think what it is going to be like when all 4 are on the field.........Jones pitches to Jones who got a blocker in front of him Jones and TD!!!!! Yeah now lets watch a Cheer by Jones.

I LOVE MY KIDS!!!!!!!.

Double OverTIme

Well, It was a hard loss this week!!! The Defense Did Awesome they held thier own and forced a double overtime. (these guys are only six and they had a double overtime)

Mom and Dad were going nuts, I felt like I was playing back in Highschool again. We ended up loosing 12-6.

I am married to such a talented girl. For all of those that dont know Joran bought a Vynl machine and decided that after looking at some scrap banners that she had and left over colors that she would make a run through for the TEAM!
SHE IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Life is good for us, we have football 3 days a week and then all day saturday. The twins are ready to stap up thier pads as well. I think maybe next year. Joran is busy with the kids getting them ready for school and spending time with her little buddy. I have been traveling more and dealing with the building of a Highrise in downtown Chicago. We are happy but miss family huge.

The Doctor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I finally got Joran to so me how to log onto the Blogger account. So i figure i will try to keep up with posting.......since someone else keeps slacking. J/K

We signed Jase up for football, we thought it would be cute and fun you know like little league. WOW were we wrong, It is is all out either your on defense or on offense and complete with special teams. I have tried to stay back and be encouraging but not over bearing. I have done good so far. He has natural hitting ability.....gee wonder where that comes from, wrestling with brothers, his daddy to name a few. His only problem is he is "Ferdinand the bull" He is working on the aggression but he still can't get over that it is ok to hit and that he wont hurt anyone.

It is awesome to go to the games on Saturday we have had a blast the last couple of weekends!!!!!!!

Meet The "DOCTOR"

While mom's away the boys will play!

Josh took a week vacation to play with the boys while I was gone, Although his week vacation turned into working from home for a week. He still managed to do some fun and questionable activities with them.

Like teaching them how to throw tennis balls at a wasps nest

Toasting breakfast with cans of soda

Eating ice cream for lunch, not AFTER lunch but FOR it.

Somethings were a bit more normal...

Burger King runs

And Miniature Golfing


but to give josh the appropriate credit. he did cut the boys hair and had the house completely cleaned up. You would have never guess the boys were bachelors for a week. All 3 bathroom were cleaned, every room was vaccumed (including the stairs) all landry was washed, folded and put away. I've trained him right, but just to make sure I think I should go on another trip to really test him. haha

She is the BEST traveler

This being our 8th trip her and I have taken together, i realized we don't have one picture together on the plane. Now we do!

Baby Conlan Lincoln McKinney

Dinner with the Girls


the Shout House

Gum in the Hair


do NOT let brie push a grocery cart with a baby carrier on it, she can't see over the top of it. resulting in hitting this tower of glass bottles of salsa. We watched as it swayed but managed to stay standing. We left the isle quickly before she had a chance to run into it again.
Other Fun!!!

March, April, May = ArIzOnA

  • March= a trip for mom and varsity to phx to see boy go through the temple. And be there for his farewell. I had already booked a flight for the last week in March thinking I would make it for boy's farewell, the temple and seeing him off at the airport. However thanks to stake conference and the temple closed for cleaning. Those plans that were already in place were going to put me in AZ after all of the permission celebrations had already taken place. So josh quickly changed my flight plans, rescheduled his business trips and sent me out earlier.

  • April= a trip for mom and varsity to Phx. Grandma dots passed away unexpectedly and thanks so my amazing husband and some quick help from my aunt Lois and uncle Dave. I was able to book a flight and be there with my mom and sisters.
  • For the first time in three yrs Jerrae, Statton (nephew) and Giada (niece) had booked flights to come out and visit us....that trip was put on hold with grandma passing away just a few days earlier. Hoping they make it out soon.

  • May= a trip for mom and Varsity to meet baby conlan (new cousin/nephew) and my 10 yr high school reunion. V and Leave on Saturday. For what will be her last free lap child trip to Arizona now we'll have to purchase 2 tickets because she is my little travel buddy and I can't imagine going without her.
  • Josh spent another week traveling through Pennsylvania and Baltimore meeting with customers and working more on his Modular Fire Protection buisness plans.

  • More pictures to follow after this trip.

4 Years Ago

these two little guys decided to make a very early arrival... at 33 weeks.
  • And after i had laid in a hospital bed only allowed to walk to the bathroom for 7weeks. Trying my best to keep them in. Contracting every night. Nightly doses of Terbutaline. A 24/7 IV of Magnesium, a new IV every four days with a least 2 attempts to nail my rolling veins, a suspicious heart murmur because of to much Terbutaline, twice a day fetal monitoring laying still so they could get a good solid hr reading, constant eating to gain the weight they wanted to see gained --never happened, pretty stretch marks, a two yr old at home and an emergency c-section. Still didn't seem like enough sacrifice when I saw them like this.....

  • Kage 3 lbs 12oz

Kadin 4lbs 2oz

after 6 weeks for Kadin and 8 weeks for Kage. We were a family of 5 at HOME!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOYS!!!!!March 1st 2004.
