'Twas the Saturday before Christmas
and all through the house
not a creature was stirring
'til they smelled a german apple pancake.


The bodies in this little house have increased...and so have the piles of stuff.

And it all belongs to boys.

But they did find Dr Mario for wii....for me, so all is well.

And if you have a wii, we can play online together.  It is WAY fun!
We've been at a basketball tournament all week and today was the finals...lots of dads and lots of dads video cameras.
Our boys won by 6 and it was not an easy win...Alex was in foul trouble by the start of the 2nd quarter.  Not good...not good.  (Not good for the team and not good for the mama!!!)

A few highlights of my #35 (in white):

In the end, all was well....and after getting a huge trophy, my two youngest shot some hoops.

Since we all 5 were there (in a car with only 4 seatbelts...Alex had gotten a ride there) we headed to our favortie spot...Nick's.

It was early, but worked out perfectly.

Came home and watched The Santa Claus and made homemade caramel corn...and fed all the neighbors, too.
Tomorrow morning is church as a family of 5...first time since August!

  1. Oh my goodness, as always, the pics of food are killing me. Can't I just be your neighbor and eat at your house every day? Sigh.

    To answer your comment on my blog...sadly, my CA trip is super short. I leave by noonish on 12/24 and land just in time to drive myself (fingers crossed, no delays) to Christmas Eve service.

    I miss you guys too and would LOVE to see y'all soon. I'm back for a Wed-Sunish trip in late January. Does Alex happen to have any games on Thursdays? I'm coming to see the Ruiz clan play and there are games on Wed/Fri...I would love to see Alex in action as well as get in my Michele time too! Love you!
