A1 loves any excuse to eat popcorn.
Jami took A3 with her to sit on the balcony while the 7th graders played. You know he was loving that!
Colt's a little camera shy at times. Not A3.
A2 was taking it all in.
Good game Jami. We enjoyed getting to watch you play.

This is what I came up with:
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
Yes, my kids get to open a gift Christmas Eve.
10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
With a mish mash of ornaments from various people, various places. The kids also have their own ornaments they've received each year and all of those go on the tree. A2 wants to know why A1 has more ornaments than she does, and A3 wants to know why A2 and A2 has more ornaments than he does. No amount of explanation is satisfactory.
11. Snow, love it or dread it?
I fall somewhere in the middle. The kids were wanting to know if there was going to be snow in Ohio for Christmas and if they could build a snowman. A2 was drawing a snow picture this morning and wanted to know if the big ball went on the bottom. :)
No. Did I mention something before about my lack of memory...I can't remember if I mentioned it or not.
14. What is the most important thing about the holidays for you?
That my kids know that we are celebrating the birth of Jesus and being with family.
I don't know that we have a tradition. It seems like life has been so crazy over the last few years that has not happened. I'll have to work on it.
17. What tops your tree?A star that lights up.
The white lights, the mish-mash, the topper.
18. Do you prefer giving or receiving?
It's definitely giving now. I love to see the look on my kids' faces Christmas morning.
19. What is your favorite Christmas song?
Depends on who I'm with and where we are going.
24. Do you own a Santa hat?

Playing around with the camera last night and I thought this was cute.

In 2 out of 3 cases, looks can be deceiving.

A2 had a grand time as well. I canNOT believe how tall she is getting. Sometimes I don't realize how much the kids have grown until I see them in a photo.
A1 had practice too, but he wasn't feeling well ~ some sort of respiratory thing ~ and I didn't get a good shot of him. Actually, I don't feel that any of the shots are that great. I did a lot of playing with the camera dial...TV, AV, white balance, flash, no flash...can Santa please bring me a speed light??? My internal flash just doesn't cut it in these situations.
A2 and A3 have 3 coaches, there are twelve 5 and 6 year olds on their team. Two of the coaches are retired NFL players. From what I've been told the head coach is quite competitive and even had the kids running last night. (I love it!) Practice was quite entertaining and I really need to take the video camera. A3 had never met Mr. Mike before, but during practice shouts out, "Hey, you used to play for the Panthers!" Mr. Mike just looked at him and A3 says, "Well, it's the truth!!" Can't you just picture his eyes and his hand motions? To which Mr. Mike smiles and says, "Yeah, it's true." Mr. Mike let us parents know quite emphatically that our kids WILL improve this year and they WILL win. It's going to be so much fun watching this season unfold.
