Hunter has been ripping up the court in Jr. Jazz this year. His coaches and fellow team mates are floored when every time they ask us "Is this really his first year playing Basketball?" and the answer (every time) is "YES!" Hunter was nominated for MVP of the past 2 games by his coach. I will admit, Dave and I have been watching him play basketball for years and we truly saw nothing unusual about Hunter, but then again, he was playing against his Uncles, Dad, and Grandpa. Once we put him against kids his own size and age...a star is born! I am delighted with this new development and really hope this gives Hunter the confidence he needs to go out in the world and be a successful person. He can do anything he puts his mind to and I am so proud of him for his hard work.

Hunter has been waking up every morning at 5 am and going to the rec center to practice basketball, he is the only kid out there, and he is noticed by everyone. On the days I do not get up and go, he gets really mad and me and makes me PROMISE to wake him up the next day! I am inspired by this kid and am so blessed to have him as my son! GO HUNTER!!

Valentines Day for Harley

It was an exciting Valentines Day for Harley this year, on her desk was sitting the biggest Valentines Bear I have ever seen. Her teachers and friends were all smiling and giggling when she walked in the room. Then she saw the bear and couldn't believe her eyes! It was from a boy at her school and she is very impressed by this gift, but very mature in how she handled it. She thanked him for the bear and told him he was a great FRIEND. Her dad was not as happy to see the bear come home with his daughter, and her mom just laughed and laughed. Harley was a bit embarrassed but has taken the GIGANTIC bear with her everywhere this weekend, so I know she LOVES it!

It was a good day February 14th 2009. The kids got lots of goodies from Grandparents and Parents. Hunter got:
Hayden got:

The night ended well, when Kimmy came to babysit the kids and Dave and I went to the Ballet. Madam Butterfly was playing at Capitol Theatre and our friends gave us their tickets. The Act I was AMAZING. Act II was...well we left at intermission (it was 9:45pm and Dave was done sitting in a tiny chair watching people flail around the stage).

Saturday is a special day,
It's the day we get ready for Sunday.
We clean out the fridge,
We wash walls and doors.
And then we are ready for Sunday.

We cry and throw fits,

Throw everything on the floor,

And then we are ready for Sunday!
