Annual New Years Kids Questions

Typically our dinner conversation is all over the place.   It is always interesting, to say the least.   As we were eating dinner on New Year's Day two years ago, Kevin and I came up with three questions to ask the kids.  We decided this would be our "Annual Kids Questions" that we would ask each boy the same questions at the beginning of each year.  We thought it would be fun to see how much each of the boys answers change from year to year depending on their age and as we move.  We also thought it would be neat to see if any of these dreams come true in the years to come.  So here we go with this years answers....

Where do you want to go to college? {We limited the list to Top 5 Colleges}

Holden {Age 12}: LSU, Clemson, Georgia, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M

Rylan {Age 9}:  Georgia, TCU, Auburn, Florida, and Ole Miss

Leyton {Age 5}: Georgia, Colorado, Kentucky, Notre Dame, and Wisconsin

What do you want to be when you grow up?  {We limited this to Top 3}

Holden {Age 12}:  Sports Agent, Professional Athlete, and Lawyer

Rylan {Age 9}:  Veterinarian, Builder and Engineer

Leyton {Age 5}: Ninja, Professional Hockey Player and a Pilot

Where do you want to live? {Top 3 Places}

Holden {Age 12}:  Georgia, Florida and North Carolina

Rylan {Age 9}:  Las Vegas, Georgia and Florida

Leyton {Age 5}:  Colorado, Georgia and Ohio

Just looking back on last years list the boys have changed places to live and teams.  Some of this may have been to do with at the time we were watch bowl games but this is what they picked.  It will be interesting to see if any of these hold true for the next couple of years.

Christmas 2017 Recap

In a flash, Christmas has come and gone.  The boys did not get out of school until the 22nd and Kevin's family arrived the same day.

We have been so busy with sports and activities that I had not done our annual North Pole Breakfast but somehow I snuck it in and that is all that matters....

The weather was bitterly cold so we made the most of our time, we played cards,

decorated cookies,

went bowling, and even braved the cold and went ice skating on the pond.


Christmas Eve service was beautiful and as soon as we got home Leyton was in full swing getting cookies ready for Santa.

He may a snuck in a few for himself as well.  Christmas morning came early!

Leyton was so excited, he got a big boy bike and lots of toys.  Holden and Rylan received more electronics or whatever tweens are into these days.

All and all, it was a nice and fun Christmas for us all.  The boys went back to school on the 2nd and we have been in full force ever since.  Hence, the delay in posting pictures and blogging.  Hopefully, I will find a little more time this coming year or at least that is one of my New Year's Resolutions.  Here we go 2018....wishing for lots of love, laughter, adventures and happiness!

Leyton turns 5!

Hard to believe but our "baby" turned 5 this weekend.  He has been so excited about his birthday for weeks now.

Leyton woke up excited to be 5.

A little glimpse of Leyton's personality is that he gets very excited about anything!  He just have a sweet personality and is typically happy all the time.


We decided against a big party this year because when we asked Leyton what he wanted to do for his birthday he said, "I want Logan to go to laser tag and have pizza".  Well, that is pretty easy so that is just what we did.


We had a day full of hockey and basketball but we were able to get out and celebrate with our little man.

Part of Leyton's birthday request was to have a Spiderman cake....


After a day full of sweets and celebrations, our little newly 5 year old was worn out but oh so happy! Happy Birthday sweet boy!

Life Lately....

It has been a busy couple of weeks.  Here is a little glimpse of our life lately....

We have been enjoying the weather and spending as much time as possible outside!  We have hiked, rode bikes after dinner, and visited our favorite nature trail too many times to count.

Leyton started skating lessons with Wildcat Hockey.  He absolutely loves it!


Rylan ran in his school Colorthon.

Leyton and I visited the farmers market last Thursday for a little fall fun.

The kids were out of school for Parent Teacher conferences last Friday so we ventured out to Sutter's Ridge before the rain arrived.

Our high school team has made it to the it's Friday night lights.

Holden and Rylan both finished up their football seasons.

Our mornings have been gorgeous!

We all enjoyed the beautiful fall weather at Enchanted Farms.  There was so much to do and so many great memories.

We attended the UW Red and White Scrimmage.  I think the highlight was meeting the players.  The boys met Brad Davison, Kobe King and T.J. Schlundt.

We experienced the most beautiful sunset and rainbow!

Well, thats about all that has been going on these past couple of weeks...more to come from Fall Break and our day to day life.
