Tyler takes home the Silver Medal!

Unfortunately I could not get the video of Tyler's match to download! He did such a FANTASTIC job today at his tournament. He had 3 matches, he pinned the first 2 and won the third by points. He went to the finals and lost by one point. He fought So hard and wrestled so well. He took home the Silver Medal! We are so proud of him. He puts his all in at practice, and it shows out in the mat. Tyler is so dedicated to his wrestling, even at such a young age. Way to go Tyler!!

Power Ranger Fun!!

Josh felt like playing Power Rangers thismorning, Matthew was the Red Ranger who got captured by the evil elves!! I have to love the creative minds my kids have! On the news thismorning, they talked about how "playing" makes you kids smarter!! If that is true then my kids are brilliant.


Good times with Daddy!!

Matthew loves every minute he gets with Reid!! This is just one of many good times they have together!

My boys!




I couldn't resist a cute shot of the boys in their matching winter pj's!!

painting projects











We went to Chicago for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time!! One thing we always do while we are there is PAINT with Grandma!! She always has the boys paint her pictures and she has them framed and hangs them all around the house! This year Matt was added to the tradition! He really got into it. I'm not sure what he liked more.. painting or eating the paint!

Trick or Treat











Halloween was so fun this year!! The boys got really into it, I actually had a hand in making the costumes!! The weather was GREAT!! We were able to stay out for a really long time.
