But, when it comes time to watch their games, we realize why we do it. To watch Braxton knock other kids to the ground, then score. He is amazing! He is so confident, he truly understands the game. It is so fun as a parent to watch your child's mind and body at work. Kenna finally starting to get it, watching her body up on other girls. Having her true colors come out on the field. She is so competitive, not afraid, and when she has the will watch out! Brixton at half time is a whole other story, he runs out on the field drop kicks his ball and dribbles it to the goal. To have all the other soccer parents in awe. They tell us every game that they can't believe how well he kicks the ball. Makes it all worth it. I bet you are wondering where Branton is during all of this. Well, we are wondering the same thing. He stays behind and does what he does best. WATCHES TV. He is a pro., he watches with the best of them. We are so proud of him. Best Damn TV watcher in the world. And if you don't believe us, just ask him. He could be great at anything, if he wanted too. He just likes TV. He is so smart and coordinated. We do not get it. But we are proud. Ask him about his cartoons, he can tell you anything and everything. We will just keep telling ourselves this is why he is such a good writer.

Soccer. It's finally over!!!!!!!!!! Well, we get 2 weeks off, then indoor starts. This soccer thing is killing us. It takes all of our time, from 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., every night of the week. Driving one kid to practice, then taking the other one to their practice, then back to pick up the first one, to go pick up the last one. It is alot of time waiting in the car. 2 games a week, 3-4 practices a week. Plus cheerleading. This is each kid. I want to be on the boat. ( WHILE WE STILL HAVE IT!)

Halloween 2008. Tiffany and I have been hosting our halloween party for 12 years. There has been many of memories made at these parties. When Cathy teamed up with her team and kicked Beau out on the survivor game. Nici and Randy dressing up like Tiffany and I, they played that off well. When Brady and Tara dressed up as Tarzan and Jane basically lingerie. When Brent said IN DA BUTT. And when the Keverns won almost every costume contest. This year they Didn't get 1 vote. I think people wanted to give someone else a chance. It is Politics.
There has been many of people coming to this party through out the years. It is a invite only. It is really hard to choose the 12-14 couples. ( That is the perfect number.) We wish it could be 30 couples. But then people get lost in the crowd. There are some that want to invite other people But we do not allow them access to back stage passes. We are really close to the people that we invite and we are going to keep it that way. We also don't want any new comers to think bad about the Martinson's. Sometimes this party gets out of hand. It can get really crude at times.
Nici And Randy took over after they were 1 1/2 Hrs late, they were in charge of bringing drinks, they brought all sugar free beverages (they can bring dessert next year.) They did some blades of glory moves. Great times. Trish and Destry won the game this year. The game was who is Adam's BFF.
But we had a great time and hope everyone that showed up did also. We already are planning next year. So If you think that you might get an invite, you may want to start planning your costumes now. Only limited passes and NO BACK STAGE VIP'S.

D asked if he could tag along the other night. So this is what I got in the 3 minutes of shooting him and Luke.
I found the perfect place to shoot pictures. It is A-Marts secret place. I have a lot of SECRET things. So if you know anyone that wants some pics Let me know. The Mortgage market isn't the best.

Tiffany is due ??/??/09. We don't really know when. She finds out this coming Sat. I sure hope it's sooner than latter. It Might be me, but I am getting tired of her. She is not that nice. She doesn't think I 'm funny. ( And I am Damn Funny ) We got in a little Fight yesterday. ( it was her fault ) Didn't last that long. A average Adam & Tiffany Dual. ( 30 minutes ) I thought since she probably new she was in the wrong. She would bring me a package of Lifesavers. When she got home from work, I was waiting outside for her. I was excited. I thought for sure she would bring me a package. Is all I got is (What are you doing ). I told her I was going to RuleMakers to help him with his Garage. ( He is doing his floor ) She told me she was going to bed. I thought WOW that's weird She is really going to bed. OH ya I forgot. She is PREGNANT. She Is always sick, Tired, Reading Twilight or playing Web"kins on the computer. SO For those of you that think it's Just the wife That suffers from having a baby. THINK AGAIN.
The Bottom Line is I love her more than anything. And I am really glad this is last child.
I want this Back

Happy Birthday Randy!
We missed you. Well, some of us. We didn't bother the neighbors with any loud games, we didn't see who was the best at anything, we didn't hand out any ribbons or trophies, we didn't even make any new rules. We just hung out and enjoyed some birthday cake. We left you some did you enjoy it as much as we did? We missed the pool being open, we missed the slide, we missed the hot tub, we missed Keeli. Some of us missed croquet, some of us missed Jana , some even missed Randy, but we all really missed Benz. Adam figured out how to hot wire the pool cover (with great tech support). But because your sister-in-law is afraid of you she would not let it happen. We hope your birthday was as fun as your party but next time leave the key. We always clean up after.
