The boys started indoor soccer last weekend. Jay liked it. Owen didn't. Owen complained of being tired, thirsty, and his foot hurting.

The boys spent their birthday at Happy Joe's and to our surprise, Santa was there.

The boys played "Santa" for about a month. They would load their toys in a sled (laundry basket) and push it around the house. We had to close our eyes and when we opened them, Santa had left us a present.

New Puppy

Michelle got her graduation present early. His name is Charlie Brown. He is 6 months old and a rescue.


The boys had their fourth birthday December 16.

Owen's Collection

Owen has decided he wants to collect skeletons. So far he has a set of skeleton lights, a skeleton pirate, and rubber skeletons that stick to the walls and ceiling.

He Named His Ice Cream

The boys each had a scoop of ice cream last night. Jay decided to name his "bally."
Jay: Oh no, Bally's melting.
Owen: That's okay you can get another Bally.
Jay: I miss Bally.
