Day 54

The JV baseball team got their uniforms!  B was able to keep #18, but the jersey is enormous.  He has been #18 all but one year since he was 8 years old.

Day 53

After 5 days of tryouts, the roster for the JV baseball team at West was finally announced.  We are so proud of Brendan for making the team.  There were a total of 6 catcher out there, and only one of those was a senior (no juniors).  There were two returning sophomores and 3 freshmen.

We surprised B with a cake and balloons.

Happy Birthday Carson!!!


Day 51

Saturday we went to my niece's 6th birthday party.  Her birthday is Monday the 22nd!


Day 50

Brendan put a team together for the annual Dodgeball tournament that our church hosts each year.  All money is donated to the food pantry, and guests are asked to bring canned food items as admission.

Brendan's team was Snoop Dodgy Dodge.  They got sent to the loser's bracket the first game, but managed to win all other games and played in the championship.  Unfortunately they lost that game.

Day 45

Valentine's DAy 2016

Day 44

It is bitter cold outside.  Highs in the upper 20s and lows in the low teens.

That didn't stop these two from playing on the trampoline today.  I've got to admit that it was nice for the kids to be outside a little while at least.


It also helped that hot chocolate with A LOT of whipped cream was waiting on them when they finally came inside! :)


Day 43

I gave JC two canvases for Christmas.  The quality is not so good because they were printed from snapshots of old photos.  I love them though, and I finally got them hung in the stairwell leading down to the basement.


In the top canvas, JC is running in a 1993 track meet for UNC.

In the bottom photo, he had just won the United Kingdom High School Championship in the 800m.

I married a track star! :)

Day 40

Emma loves to watch instructional videos on YouTube.  Lately she has been watching tutorials on braiding hair.  She tried out something new on me this past weekend.  I think she did very well!

Day 39

Emma and Jackson decided to bake a cake one night this past weekend.  We didn't have all of the ingredients so we improvised.




They each decorated 1/2 side.  Emma drew a flower pot, and Jackson tried the Liverpool FC bird and some other graphic designs.

Day 38

Super Bowl 50

Carolina Panthers vs. Denver Broncos

Although I am a Cowboys fan, Brendan loves the Panthers.  We went to a Super Bowl party and everyone there was a Panthers fan.  I painted Emma's face for the game. I wore a UNC shirt and my Cowboys earrings! :)



Day 37

Emma played in her first soccer tournament this weekend.  She did really well considering they only had one practice before the tournament.

Came across this in a sweet!
