Purple Storm Clouds

Ezra is now officially playing soccer and loving every minute of it. Coach Matt is doing such an awesome job coaching these adorable 5 year old kids. Ezra just adores that his dad is the coach and he makes sure that everyone knows that his daddy is his soccer coach. Matt makes all the parents at every single game get up and make a tunnel for all the kids to run through and they just love it. We now know that when the game ends and our team goes and high-fives the other team. Us parents know that we better get our butts up before coach Matt tells us too and form a tunnel for our kids. It is so great watching Ezra play soccer. He gets so into it and plays so well. I really think he is going to be very good at soccer and enjoy more and more as he gets older. Eli wishes he could be out there playing too. He has to put on all his soccer gear and sit with the team. He also got the parents to include him in on the half time snack and the goodies for after the game. We got to have Bree and Clint come and join for one of Ezra's games before they moved to Arizona:( Eli did not want to take one last picture with them but we made him anyways and it is now my favorite picture of all time. Ezra pulling a face, Eli crying hysterically, Bree laughing and Clint's happy smile on his face!!! PRICELESS

Really sad I missed a whole year of blogging:(

I was going to try and make a post of what has happened in this past year but that would have been just to much work. So I will just have to start off to where we are now. I might post a few pic here and there from last year just so I can remember and have it in our blog to look back on. Anyway we just got back from Disneyland with my mom. It was extremely hot and very crowded. We will never go back in the summer ever again. But it was still fun and we were able to meet up with my sister and her family. We had such a blast with them and all the cousins together playing for the weekend in San Diego!!!

Can he ever stay clean?

This kid literally walks outside for two seconds and is covered from head to toe. I have finally learned that when I let him go outside, I just strip his clothes off and let him play in the backyard in his diaper cause this is what happens. I love this little guy, he is so funny and always keeps me on my toes and I never know what he is going to do next!!!


The stone is up!!!! We decided to go for a drive Saturday night and we drove past our house thinking nothing would have been done cause it was a Saturday but as we drove up we saw that they put up our stone. We were so thrilled and can't believe it is getting closer and closer. We will meet with our builder this Wednesday and walk through the house... YEA!!! I am so happy and I know my parents are too.. ha ha They need there house back. When we move they will be empty nesters and I think they are more thrilled for that then anything. Which they should be cause they deserve it after raising us Barratt kids. We are so thankful for there help and roofing us for months. We love you Mom and Dad so much. Eli and Ezra will for sure have some withdraws but I think they will be ok!!!

Update #5

Our Black Island Cabinets
Our kitchen cabinets, we did two toned cabinets
The Master bathroom cabinets (I can't wait to have my own sink) :)
Our house, they still need to put the stone on our house, light fixtures, and garage doors.
We are getting closer and closer, as of right now our move in date is two weeks from today. September 23 is our official move in day. We are in the process of closing with our lenders, which has been very stressful. We thought we had everything they needed and they dropped a few more to do thing for us to get done. So we have been pretty stressed out about that, but we have amazing family support. We are so blessed for the people we have in our family and we thank everyone for all there love and support. We can't wait to start making memories with you in our new home!!!!
