Sports! Sports! Sports!

My boys have been working hard and playing hard!  Colton played basketball this season...As the score board shows, the last minute of this game was a nail-biter!  But we won!!

Bryan played with a recreational soccer team after his school soccer season ended...

Kyle played basketball.  He's always a fun one to photograph because he really gets intense when he's playing!  love the tongue sticking out of the side of his mouth when he's concentrating too.

What's the saying? "It'll be a cold day in H*LL?"

Well, Phoenix is pretty hot during the summer.  People could compare the summer climate here to...that place where the devil lives :) .  It's about perfect the rest of the year.  We LOVE it here!  We actually saw snow this winter!  Now that is pretty unusual around these parts.  We see it in the surrounding mountains, but we really don't see it in the valley.  It didn't stick, but there were flurries!

Valentine's Fun

Kyle had a lot of fun with his box for his Valentine's party at school this year...

Bryan felt loved when he got this on our front door...

I got up early on Valentine's Day to make everyone breakfast.  Anyone who knows me knows that I don't like getting up early, and I put pajamas on as early as possible - whenever I know I don't need to go out again that day, even if it's noon ;)  My kids usually have cereal for breakfast, except for the occasional Saturday, holiday, or birthday - so this was a special treat!

I made Nutella French Toast with Strawberries.  Holy cow... yummy!

I also put these labels on some Hawaiian Punch for each person (thank you Pinterest for the cute idea)!

I gave each of my kids a cute little teddybear and box of chocolates.  They were so excited!  It was a yummy, fun day!

Morgan LOVES volleyball!

Morgan started playing volleyball and is loving it!  I took her team's pictures.  Before starting the shoot, Morgan took a picture of me! 

We LOVE watching Morgan play!

Colton and me at DISNEYLAND

I really, really, really LOVE Disneyland!  But I love this boy even more, which is why I was willing to give up sleep in order to go on this trip.  Colton is in band, and they took a trip to Disneyland.  I immediately jumped in to chaperone.  The only bad part was leaving on a charter bus at midnight and trying to sleep on the bus.  We got there at 6am, spent all day at Disneyland and California Adventures, then got back on the bus to leave at 10pm.  We got home super early the next morning.  So fun!  We were zombies the next day, but so worth it!  Loved spending that time with my cute boy!

On the bus (I wore my PJ's)...If I'm going to get any sleep I might as well be comfortable.
