Happy Birthday to...


Last year, I had such a great birthday. It seemed like I celebrated for about a month. Here are some pictures from last year.

This is me with some of my friends from work (preschool). This is at Romano's Macaroni Grill with all of my family. Yes, there are two cakes in front of me. That is what they bring you when you get this old! No, really my Dad's birthday is Jan. 1 and we were celebrating his also so they brought us two cakes each so that we could share with everyone. That was nice!

Taylor and I on the actual day of my birthday last year and we had just come from a SF Basketball game, of course.

Me with my girlfriends! Such a fun night out!

And then this is me ANOTHER year older, with my boys this year and yes, we were heading out to a SF Basketball game!

Another year older, and I feel a hundred years older!

Christmas pictures

On Christmas Eve-Eve. This is when we opened our gifts to each other. Thomas thought the wrapping on his gift from Taylor was hilarious! Christmas Eve at my Mom and Dad's house. Beautiful neices!

I don't normally dress up animals but since this one is over my Christmas tree I wanted him to have a little Christmas spirit.

This is Thomas' wee-little snowman from the beautiful snow that we had a few weeks ago.

Last week we celebrated my sweet niece's 13th birthday (Jessica with the hat on). Her birthday was actually yesterday on the 21st. This is her with her sister, Amanda.

A sweet birthday surprise from some of my very special friends. I especially loved the song that they sang to me: "We wish you a Merry Christmas, We wish you a Merry Christmas, We wish you a Merry Christmas, and A Happy Birthday!"

Thomas' basketball season ended last week with tournaments in Hampshire. They came in 3rd place.
This is Taylor (40) in the JV game the other night. (I can never get a good picture! If he sees me with the camera - I am dead!) He had a break-out game in which he scored 12 points!

May you all have a blessed Christmas full of much love and happiness.

High School Basketball started up a few weeks ago. Here are a few pictures.

This is Taylor (#40) at a scrimmage game in Summertown.

This is a Junior Varsity game at Santa Fe.

And this is Thomas (middle) warming up for a middle school game. We had our last middle school game at Hampshire Thursday night. Next week we have tournaments. Thomas did not get very much play time, but hopefully will in the future!
