USA soccer rocks!

Last night the USA men's team played against Venezuela in Phoenix. This was our first time watching these elite players live and what an experience! I LOVE soccer! It's fast paced, exciting, and there's never a dull moment. The game was tied 0-0 until the last minute USA scored on a header! What a nail biter! Our boys were in awe of the skills these men posses and what a great opportunity for them to see up close what the best of the best look like.

All it takes is a little cotton candy to keep this one entertained!

We even saw Drew Carey! He's the blurry guy in the black jacket and purple scarf. Apparently he's a huge soccer fan...I'm with you Drew!

Ringin' in 2012!

Our friends Dan and Melissa hosted a New Year's party this year! They invited several families over for food, games, fireworks, and fun! What a great way to bring in the New Year!

Delicious treats!

Sledding Fun!

During the last week of Christmas Break my friend Nancee and I took our kids up to Mt. Lemmon to go sledding. This was my first trip up there. Logan had visited for Scout Camp before and he was excited to go back! How lucky are we that we can drive an hour and enjoy a fun day in the snow? Plus, when we arrived home the temps were hovering around 70! I LOVE Tucson winters! It was an icy snow which made for fast sledding runs and London was perfectly happy sliding on his tummy! It was a great day!

Christmas morning

Christmas morning was lovely. The boys let us "sleep in" till 6:30 (hey it could be much worse) and then the present frenzy began. Soon our living room was a pile of wrapping paper,ribbons, and bows and I wouldn't have it any other way. We then enjoyed a yummy breakfast of waffles, bacon, fruit, and hot chocolate. After our tummies were full we left for church where we were treated to beautiful Christmas hymns and inspiring talks. It was nice to take some time out of our day to truly reflect on the real reason we celebrate! The rest of the day was spent playing, napping, and eating...just perfect!
