Our Saturday

We started out with Jacob's League basketball game that Dale coaches. We won! 1st Place! Hopefully we will do well in the tournament and get a second trophy!
After League basketball it was off to church basketball.

A little mismatch

Just one of three 3"s that Jacob made

Father and Son:)

Then it was yard work for Dale. He got to use his new chainsaw and saw down the frost bitten jungle from our very cold winter.

Dale and his new toy!

Brittney's Coaching Debut

After Jacob's basketball game we headed to the church for the church basketball game. When we got there Brittney was coaching another Ward's team. It was fun to watch her. She might have a career in coaching.

They lost by 1 point, but that is because they were ahead by 4 and she told them to slow it down and they kept taking stupid shots instead of passing and stalling.

Mom's Birthday

Happy 76th Birthday Mom. We were lucky enough to have my Mom here during her birthday. We got her a cookie cake since we still had cake from Jacob's birthday. She had never had a cookie cake.
Since our family doesn't sing too well, we had to hire our friend Chantel and her boyfriend Daniel to sing for my mom. Actually, Chantel and Daniel came by to get something, so we waited till they got there to sing.

Way to blow out 76 candles in one breath!
Mom and her cake.

Jacob's Birthday

For Jacob's birthday we just had a family dinner of Domino's pizza and hot wings. Jacob had his favorite cake, Chocolate with chocolate frosting. Contemplating his birthday wish or just hoping we will quit singing
How many times does it take to blow out 12 candles?


Three or more?

Got an XBox live renewal

And Money!!!!!

And Dale enjoying the hot wings

Our Baby is Twelve

Time sure has flown by! I can't believe that Jacob is already 12 years old.
Happy Birthday Jacob.
We love you!

Class Rankings

Brittney got her class ranking today: She is 45 out 719 Juniors! Not too shabby! Of course she gets her brains from her mother, since she was smart enough to marry someone really smart!
Way to go Brittney. You just have to take down 35 people in the next year to be in the top 10!
Brittney, we are proud of you and love you lots and lots.

Jacob the Leader

Jacob received a leadership award at school yesterday. They called Dale at work to tell him he was getting the award, but they didn't call me. He received a certificate and a t-shirt to wear to school today and he gets to be on CNN(Coyote Network News) today. I asked Makenzie to take her camera and tape Jacob on CNN but don't think she will, that wouldn't be cool. We are proud of Jacob. Certificate
Front of Jacob's shirt, he didn't want his picture taken.

The kids were allowed to wear PJ's to school if they donated money for the Haiti Relief Fund. I went to give them some money and they told me they were using their own money. That made my day. I made them take the extra money anyways.

Scratching My Head

The small box came in that big box. Over packing?
It is an important box. It has the part to fix my broken ovens, at least I hope it fixes it!

Our Point Guard?

Brittney got to play some point guard last night. She played some last game also.I didn't get a picture last week because I was in shock to see her playing that position. This is so not her specialty and so out of her comfort zone, but she did a good job. Taking the ball down the court

Another trip down the court


Taking it to the basket

I think she scared the defender in this one!
The girl is crying for her mom.

We are the visitor and came up with the win

OK... You decide....
Giraffe or Mustang?

A few years ago we were the football game of the week when we played this school .The TV crews came to our schools the morning of the game and film the band and cheerleaders. One of the news anchor made a comment something like, Go Giraffe's. He later apologized when he found out it was a Mustang, but put up a picture of Geoffrey the Giraffe from Toys-R-Us so you could see the similarities. I'm with the news anchor.
