So, we painted it light blue and brown! It turned out ADORABLE - but I don't have a picture of the finished product, so you'll just have to trust me on that one.
Their little Nick is the cutest little guy - you would die! He says "BYU eats boogers!" and kids never lie so...
Thursday - SOCCER, SOCCER, SOCCER!!
FRIDAY - Friday was too boring to blog about, really. Just a relaxing day. But here's the cutest picture of Cole that day playing with his favorite doggie. You can tell when a stuffed animal is a favorite of Cole's because he'll bite the nose! Mason did that too - I love it!
TODAY (Saturday) - So far - well not much. But I had an extremely frustrating morning with Hallie. She is so stinkin' shy - like PAINFULLY shy that she just can't function in crowds. I kinda just had it with her this morning at Soccer when she played her final game of the season and just stood there AGAIN! She has some serious "stage fright" issues that need to be resolved. No amount of coaxing, bribing or threatening has worked.
To show you what I mean, here she is on a normal basis at my house:
It topped it off when she had pictures today and wouldn't stop putting her fingers in her mouth. I asked for my money back and told her we were done with Soccer. I don't know what to do. I tell ya - I feel like a failure sometimes.
So that's my week thus far ... "In a Nutshell" - (get it??)

And later that evening, I went and saw cute Kinley and Erica rock the house in their High School Musical play. They did awesome! Good job guys.
After which I came home to my adorable family - who had cake and ice cream ready for me. And my kids had worked really hard to make me these adorable presents filled with all sorts of fun stuff. Thanks, guys! I love you.
And don't worry, my birthday didn't end there! The next day, we all went to the Spaghetti Factory for dinner (my favorite) to celebrate a little more.
I have the best family in the whole wide world. I am truly blessed!
Thanks to all who made it really fun and special. I couldn't ask for better family and friends.

...she drives her baby brother CrAzY!
He loves her to death, but he's terrified of her! I hope he survives.
Oh... and here's a picture of the newest resident in our home! (don't worry, I will be disposing of it as soon as I possibly can without Mason knowing)
I HATE SPIDERS!

Our nephew, Mitchell plays football for Hilcrest. This week he played in Bountiful - so we thought we'd offer a little support and go watch him play. It was fun - especially for Mason to see his cousin play football! And yes, Ross gave him a little "pep talk" so to say. Sorry Mitch! We love you!

What is going on? I feel like everything is going in fast forward and if I blink I might miss something. How in the world can I have a 1st grader and a pre-schooler? Didn't I just graduate from high school? I'm the type of mom that takes video and pictures of EVERYTHING but then can't go back and look at it EVER because it will make me cry uncontrolably for weeks straight. It's really hard for me to watch my kids grow up. I will never get this time back.
She came home from school and had to instantly call her daddy and tell him how "great" her day was. I'm so proud of her. What a big girl!
Okay, so she's not really participating. But at least she's not crying!! I think she did great.

Apparently he scratched his cornia - and this is supposed to force his eye to rest so that it can heal. Whatever - I'm just glad to have it off now. We had to keep it on him for 24 hours. It was a rough day for a mommy. I hate stuff like this. I love you, buddy!

This is us ... (minus me) ... waiting for the train.
As we all know, the University of Utah football season plays a rather LARGE role in the Clark home. We (he) takes things pretty seriously. But as you can see - the stadium was PACKED! So, it's nice to know we aren't alone!
Grandpa and Hallie had a great time!
And our little Mason (bless his heart) has re-lived the game about 40 times since then in our front yard... while asking his dad millions of questions about who plays what position and what happened in which quarter and so on...
And of course there was peace and happiness when we finally got home that night because... THEY WON! (by a lot, might I add)
G O U T E S!

I mean seriously... pink cleates and all! She's really excited about playing. . . but Hals hates to have any attention drawn to her. So, hopefully she'll warm up and play.
Go BLUE LIGHTNING!
Apparently Ross is coaching next week - so maybe she'll actually give it a good effort! I'll keep ya posted.

So 14 hours later, with frustrated husbands, tired kids and aching bodies we present to you ....
What Angie has officially named our "BFF Salsa". (yes, and she even made labels!)
And I've just gotta say - it is super fantastically delicious! (not that we'd admit it if it wasn't) Might I suggest warming it up with shredded cheese... mmm... mmm...!
Thanks girls! Let's not do it again until next year okay?

We swam all day and everyone was pooped by the time we got home, but it turned out to be so super fun. I think we might make it a tradition every Labor Day weekend!
