Catch Up

I, Lindsey (Dave's sister) do hereby take creative liberties on updating Dave and Sarah's blog. As I sit here on Dave's laptop going through their camera and deciding myself which pictures to put on I wish I could tell witty stories on each of the pictures. However, I do not reside in this household which limits my story telling. Therefore, I choose to show updated events from the past months. I've attempted to get them to commit to regularly updating the blog, but it's still a struggle. Anyway, so here are some new developments in the Sellers' household!

Who would've thought that Dave would eventually give in and let the family adopt this adorable kitty?! Yup, Dave is a sucker for his girls and they now have a little kitty named Nike. Fitting? I think so. For Bryc'es birthday, Dave dressed up as Darth Vadar and had battles with the kids! Really entertaining to hear stories. It took some of the kids awhile to believe that they really were safe.
Also, for the third time this year they celebrated a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese's. Chuck actually came out and we got family pictures!

Before Thanksgiving I came up and got some new pictures of their family. Always good years to try and get the whole bunch smiling at the same time. Here were some attempts. Also, it was REALLY cold and around sunset so be very impressed that they are truly smiling!

Halloween! There are more of these too, but I can't find them. I'll try and get these two crazy parents to update their own blog....yeah, probably not! (Name that commercial....those of you from Denver should remember it!)

summer fun

Samantha's daily job. Actually whenever the dishwasher is open she empties it in record time - clean or dirty!

We discovered Sammy's love of cotton candy!

Playing downstairs, climbing up the wall and fighting the bad guys.

Bryce's 2nd head

I came home from girls camp and this is what Bryce looked like. I asked him what happened and he told me something that happened 2 years ago - i guess his injury time takes a longer time to show up than mosts! The Dr. told me it would take 4 weeks to go down (longer than mosts because he is a hemo) I guess we should have given him factor. Oh well it was fun to make up some really cool stories.

Bikes and Swings!

With the money the kids saved up, they bought some brand new bikes! Here are some pictures of the new bikes. We'll try to keep updating!

Birthdays and fun in the sun!

We're back!

Due to the fact that Kobe and Solena have their birthdays only 4 days apart, this year we had one day of birthday parties. Solena had her friends over in the morning and they played on the waterslide, did their nails, put on makeup and hit a pinata. Kobe's friends had a magnificent relay that they had to complete on all water obstacles in the yard as well as the trampoline and they also did the pinata. It was a very successful day!

Both Kobe and Solena chose to go to Chuck-E-Cheese's for their birthdays this year!

Here are the boys at Kobe's birthday swinging at the pinata.

We love playing outside in the summer and turn our slide into a water slide. This year we also got the big blow up slide at Costco and set it up for the kids to play with. It was a big hit at the birthday parties!

Lakers Nation

Yes, the Sellers household has officially become world headquarters of Lakers Nation. Sarah is already Vice-President and an outstanding member (having watched or partly watched when she's not asleep 82 games a year for the past 8 1/2 years.) And when Solena told Dad the other day she wanted to wear a Lakers shirt, well she didn't have to pull his arm to get one. And of course, Kobe and Bryce have become faithful members as well.

Sledding Day

Our kids have discovered their new favorite winter activity: Sledding! We took them to a sledding hill at a park near our house and they all loved it--including the girls. In fact, Solena has become so brave, she will even go down by herself. The boys love to go on the same sled and see how far they will go and most of the time they will go farther than anyone else.
