Birthday Celebration for Daniel

Posted by on Sunday, 30 December, 2012

Today was Daniel’s birthday….and we were thrilled we could share it with him—as he has been visiting this Christmas.

We started out and went to Church, then had a quick lunch at home. ¬†After that Daniel and I went out and played hockey together for the 2nd time. Daniel was the star of the show….he scored a goal and got an assist, and also had a good check in the game (pretty much a Gordie Howe hat-trick for our league—since we don’t fight—and it is supposed to be no-checking).

After the game, we recovered for a bit before going to the Cheese Cake factory for a Celebration dinner in honor Daniel’s birthday and his great performance on the ice. While I don’t have any pictures of our skate this time, I do have a couple of photos from the dinner.

Christmas Morning 2012

Posted by on Tuesday, 25 December, 2012

Here is a few pictures from Christmas morning. Daniel is here for a week with us over Christmas. Check out his socks in a couple of the pictures—they are called shin tights, used in hockey to keep your shin guards from moving around.

Rebecca and the new Fastpitch Softball team

Posted by on Wednesday, 12 December, 2012

Rebecca is playing her first year on the Frontier Fastpitch Softball team. We are excited that she made the team as they had tryouts and mostly the team is made up of veteran 8th graders who are a pretty skilled bunch of girls. There are some new girls from 7th grade to the team, like Rebecca. She is learning how to play, as this is her first try at organized softball.

The team finished their first tournament and did well. They won all their games (convincingly) and captured the trophy. Below are a couple pictures of Rebecca in her uniform.

She hasn’t seen much action on the field, as the coach plays the veteran 8th graders mostly, and tries to get the other girls in once in a while.



Some random family pictures

Here are some random pictures from Christmas and New Years.

My mom, Terry is holding the baby on the day before New Years eve….she was here for around a month to help us during the surgery and recover time….Thanks MOM.

Jared and Jordan came over and visited with us on New Years eve…there is a picture of Mom and Jared, not sure why/how Jordan did not get in any of our photos!

The girls had some friends over to hang out with. Best buds, just chillin and being crazy too. Also a picture of our crew eat breakfast and playing Hedbanz, a fun game.

There is also a sweet picture of Heidie holding peanut (taken Jan 12th).

Hope you enjoy.
