Happy New Year!

Well, as always I'm a little late to the party, but I just wanted to briefly post about the past few weeks. We had such a nice winter break, Jon was actually home for most of it, which was so nice! I don't think he's ever been able to take as many days off just for fun.  In the past when he's had more than 2 consecutive days off it's due to a hospitalization so this was a real treat!
In mid-December Josh finished up a great season of basketball. His final game was full court and boy did he ever play hard! He spent the entire game giving 100% as he always does & sprinted from one end to the was exhausting to watch! I was a bit worried that full court was gonna be too much & he'd end up pooping out half way through the game.  He never did.  Afterward his coach had some very nice things to say about Josh...


That night he slept very well.  By the next day all that running had caught up to him.  He felt pretty darn crappy and his little body ached.   So we took it very easy for a while.

Over winter break we really had a lot of fun.  We were able to go back home and visit all of our family (well, most of them).  Besides all of the excitement of Christmas Eve and Christmas day another highlight for the boys was the annual holiday football game. Josh and Sam thought they'd get a little more playing time.  There's always next year. :)

This was our first year to spend Christmas away form our home.  It was just as special, if not more, being at Grandma and Grandpa's.

We also took a little trip to Bodega Bay.  Grandpa Steve has a trailer he keeps there and so we're pretty lucky that we get to go stay there from time to time.  We had so much fun!  One morning we decided to go on a little walk before breakfast...a little walk turned into 5 miles!  We didn't get back until after 11am! It was not what we intended but somehow it happened.  I really had no idea we were gone that long since we didn't bring our phones we couldn't keep track of the time.  I can't believe the boys made it that far with out being fed along the way.  They are like puppies and we have to bribe them with treats usually if we expect them to cooperatively hike that far! Good memories!

Here are a few other pictures from December that are worth posting....

Happy New Year everyone!
