Busy Times

Where has the first month of this new year gone? That is the question that I found myself thinking today. It seems like it was just the other day that we were fighting to stay awake to see the new year in. Now we are one month through it.

We have had so much going on that I feel like my body is literally spinning in circles at times. Between starting back to school and all the sports games and practices it is always something going on.

Yes, we did just get back from a nice little get away to California to see Mickey and friends. We spent most of last week walking the parks of Disneyland and California Adventure. We were so exhausted from all the walking that we almost felt like we needed a vacation from our vacation. HA! :) We had a great time but it has been non stop every since we drove back into town.

The night we got home we had just enough time to unload the car and then we were off to Kyle's soccer game. The next 3 days we found ourselves driving an hour each way to more soccer games. Kyle played in a tournament that was really far away. It was so far that most families from the team ended up staying at a hotel by the fields for the weekend. One of the days we had to be at the fields by 7am. I had to set my alarm for 4:30am that morning. Blah! (way too early or me). It was a fun tournament, they always are. Kyle's team ended up in the consolation round and won it. Overall, Kyle had 7 goals this weekend! He was on fire!

There is always Hockey on the weekends as well and this weekend was a big one for Tyler's team. They played the #1 team in their league and beat them with a 4-3 win. It was very exciting to say the least!! It has been a long time since I have seen grown adults jumping and screaming uncontrollably with such passion. hehe!! I think all the parents were more tired then the players from all the screaming, yelling and cheering.

Now looking ahead from here...we still have the crazy hockey and soccer schedules in addition to the start of a new recreation soccer team that the hubby and I will be coaching, and... Tyler will be picking back up with his song and dance group at church (more practices during the week to be at). Oh yes, these are busy times!

Another trip tp Disney

Yep, we are planning another trip to Disney in the near future. Last Fall break we took the kids to Disneyland. After a few days there we enjoyed it so much that we decided to upgrade our tickets to annual passes. So being that we already have our tickets to the park we thought it was about time to return to the "happiest place on earth".

I am also looking forward to seeing the ocean. I LOVE the ocean! I look at the ocean and think of how truly awesome our God is!!

Belated Greetings

Let me start by greeting you with a belated, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We celebrated with family from out of town, we ate lots of In-n-Out (for the out of towners), went to a Phoenix Coyotes game, shopped for Christmas gifts together, wrapped Christmas gifts together, shared many late nights together and had lots of fun! Thanks for making the time to spend Christmas with us, Jen. It was wonderful to have you here. I look forward to spending many more Christmases with you.

We had so much fun that the time went by way too fast. In fact, the kids started back to school today. Blah! It was hard for everyone this morning to get up to alarm clocks, instead of the sun.
