Skylahs 8th Birthday and Soccer Pics

Landon just started his 5th season of soccer! He loves it and has become very good! We are thinking of joining a competitive league next season though! The Y isnt supposed to keep score (but somehow we managed to remember we were undefeated last year!!)
I think he is ready for a little competition now though!!
Nana and her love!
Go Landon Go!
Skylahs birthday was on the 23rd! We celebrated at home with the family on her bday b/c Landon wasn't going to be at her party (slumber party..see below)
Aren't they so cute?!?!
Then last weekend, Landon packed up to go stay at Mimi and Nanas, and we packed up to have a campout slumber party at Skylahs dad and step moms house!
Crystal is so creative and we manage to throw Skylah some pretty cool birthdays every year!
The girls had there 3 room tent all set up...The beautiful birthday girl...
The 4 coolest moms in our "Camp Skylah 08..STAFF" shirts...The girls making their rhinestone camo bandannas... Opening presents...
We cooked hot dogs on the campfire... we told stories...
we made smores (yummy)...
we bobbed for apples...
and we made...(no, they are not jello shots!!) Jello cups that they had to get the gummy worm out of and eat it all with chopsticks!
They were too funny!and last but not least we attempted popcorn on the fire...but as you can see, that didnt work out too well! ;)We had such a good time..the kids were in the tent and asleep by 12:30 and then all the adults stayed up drinking wine and sitting around the campfire until 4:00 in the morning! (shh..dont tell anyone!)
Here's one more pic of Skylahs mom, Crystal, me and Skylahs step-mom, Les!
and again...we are such dorks, but had a ball! We are having a campout for Landons birthday too in December, so I'm trying to think of fun ideas for that now!!

What a fabulous party! Although it is hard to tell who had more fun...the adults or kids!

I love the jello/gummy worm game. I might use it for the Halloween party at school.
