Ski Lessons 2012

The boys took skiing lessons on December 30th out at Snow Creek.  It was Kenny’s second lesson ever and Luke’s first.  Luke was so funny because he was having a hard time stopping himself.  At one point, he took out a few kids.  I’ll work on getting some videos of them skiing on here next.

Thanksgiving Day 5K 2012

We did the Sprint Thanksgiving Day 5K this year.  This was Luke’s first 5K and Kenny’s second.  The boys walked the first 2.5 miles and then ran the last .6.  They both were in a great mood and had a lot of fun, which was very different from Kenny’s first 5K, when he would randomly start crying.

Name                 Bib #     Age     Time            Place (age group:  Males 0-17 years)
Kenny     KS    3223       8          52:38.1        404
Luke        KS    3224       5           52:39.4       405

Things I’m lovin’

Here are just a few things that I’m loving right now:

1.  Starbuck’s Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Yum!  Even better, we had to wait in the drive through for 5 minutes the other day and they gave us our order for free.

2.  Dexter

I had three people, in just one week, tell me that I needed to watch this show.  I did and loved it.  It’s a little messed up (serial killer that only kills bad people) but different, in a good way.  I’m waiting to get season 2 from the library.

3.  Fork and Screen movies

What could be better than eating dinner while watching a movie in big, comfy seats?  And the food isn’t that bad.  I did make the mistake of ordering the fish the first time we went and it was definitely more difficult to eat in the dark.  Eric took me to the Fork and Screen showing of Twilight two weeks ago.  The beginning was so, so bad BUT the end completely made up for it.  It had a little twist that I did not see coming.  It was much better than the book.

I want to see the Abraham Lincoln and James Bond movies next.

4.  Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

One of my FB friends recommended it as a good read.  At first, I was kind of put off by the fact that it’s about college students but quickly got over it.  She is also writing it from the guy’s point of view (this one was from the girl’s) and it’s coming out in April.

I also read 50 Shades of Gray and I’m not sure what all the fuss is about (maybe it gets better in book #2 and #3).  If she mentioned biting her lip or her inner goddess one more time, I was going to lose it.

Next, I really want to read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.  I’m still #121 on the wait list at the library.

My book club is reading The Life of Pi for our January read and I really hope it’s good.

I would LOVE some more book recommendations.  I need a new, good author/series.

5.  Groupon

I’ve already bought three Christmas gifts off of Groupon.

6.  Ebates

It kills me when I forget to go through Ebates when ordering on-line

7.  Luke and Kenny’s excitement for Christmas

Luke has been talking about Christmas since September.  Even though we’ve had to remind him a few times that Christmas is about Jesus’s birth, and not presents, it’s still really cute.  I am really going to miss it when they no longer believe in Santa.  I’m actually a little surprised that Kenny still does.

8.  Longview Lake’s Christmas in the Park display

This is the second year that we’ve gone to it.  The display is huge and they just really do a good job.  We took my parents along this year and we decided to make it an annual thing.

9.  Indoor soccer

I love soccer in general but I really love watching the boys play indoor soccer right now.  I love how fast paced it is.  Kenny’s games are just fun to watch because the kids are all starting to get to that stage where they are really good.  His footwork is getting so good and the kid can seriously get the ball away from anyone.  Luke is fun to watch because he likes to be the goalie.  Kenny and Luke are so different in that regard, and it really shows their personalities.  I feel like Kenny doesn’t like to be goalie because when he gets scored on, he takes it personally and feels bad.  When Luke gets scored on, it doesn’t bother him and he says he didn’t have any help (with a smile on his face).

10.  Eric’s schedule

I can’t believe I forgot this one at first.  Eric is now working Monday-Friday 8:00-4:00 like normal people do, with holidays off.  Unless a promotional process comes up, he’ll do this for the next four years.

Fall medals

Kenny played soccer too.  I’m assuming they just forgot to give out their medals and we’ll get them soon.

Walk of Champions/Flags

Kenny and Luke got to go on the field with the Sporting KC players yesterday for the national anthem.  Kenny held the bottom of the green MLS flag and Luke walked out with Kamara (he’s on the very end).

Even better, Sporting KC won the game, clinching the conference title.

Kenny’s last baseball game (2012)

Kenny had his last baseball game tonight.  He spent the majority of the season playing third base; the kid seriously has a great arm.  I have to say that I am slightly glad that baseball is over.  This summer has been ridiculously hot and I’m a little sick of sweating just while watching the games:)

Kenny’s first tennis lesson

Kenny has been big into tennis this summer.  My mom showed him some of the basics a few weeks ago and then my MIL gave him lessons for his birthday.  They started yesterday and he loved them!

Luke’s last t-ball game of the summer (2012)

Luke had his last t-ball game last night.  He was funny because he didn’t want to play t-ball, he wanted to play coach pitch.  I could be wrong but I think next year is t-ball too.  He may have to wait a while:)

Not bad for a rebuilding year, eh?

KU just beat Ohio State and we’re going to the championship!!!!  Not bad for a rebuilding year when we really weren’t expecting them to go too far. 

And I know this isn’t nice, but suck it Jack:)

March Madness 2012

1.  I LOVE March Madness.  LOVE.

2.  KU didn’t make a #1 seed but they didn’t really deserve it.  The #2 seed was fine.

3.  I took this blindfold bracket approach and came up with KU to win it all.  It’s kind of fun if you haven’t already tried it.

4.  I actually had Kentucky to win it all in the first bracket I made.  I just couldn’t do it and ended up ripping it up and doing a new one where KU wins it all. 

5.  As much as I want KU to win (or at least do well), I want Mizzou to lose.  K State used to be my least favorite team but that honor has now gone to Mizzou.

Basketball 2012
