A Very Busy Week...

A quick week in review for those that wonder why sometimes the blog, emails, and phone calls are the last to be addressed.

Monday: Day: Work/ school. Evening: Brooke had Bball practice and Ashley participated in Day 1 of the Mini Cheer Camp at CV High School. Dinner, homework, showers, misc.

Tuesday: Day: Work/ school. Evening: Science projects and laundry!! Dinner, homework, showers, misc.

Wednesday: Day: Work/ school. Evening: Ashley participated in Day 2 of the Mini Cheer camp at CVHS while Dave and I hosted Care Group (6 couples + kids) in our home. Dinner, homework, showers, misc.

Thursday: Day: Appointments to take care of personal business (i.e. nails, cut & color, waxing). At 2:30, Brooke's 4th grade class hosted a "Wax Museum" where each of the kids in the class selected a famous individual to impersonate. In the past few weeks, they read books and studied the lives of these people. Today, they stood behind their desks were they displayed props relating to their character. Each desk had a red button to push that triggered the kids to begin their speech that highlighted their characters life.

Brooke portrayed the life and times of Abraham Lincoln.

Brooke as Abe Lincoln and Courtney as Annie Oakley.

Thursday evening we watched at the Future Cheerleaders of CVHS (Ashley and friends) performed at halftime during the varsity basketball game.

Friday: Work/ School. Evening: Shane picked up the girls for the weekend at the bus stop. Dave was out of town for the past 2 days and traveling home so I took advantage of the free time to enjoy dinner and drinks with some of the ladies from work at Rock City Grill. Before leaving the mall, I stopped by Banana Republic and picked up two pairs of slacks on clearance. One pair was $14.99 (originally $89) and the other for $30.99 (originally $110). I LOVE A GREAT DEAL!!
Saturday: We were at it early again for BBall games and cheerleading with games beginning at 9am.

The Glitters!

The girls went home with Shane so I took advantage of the free time to get a massage then came home and napped while Dave caught up on lost episodes of "Red Eye". Finally, I calculated and submitted our 2008 tax returns after balancing our budget.
Now, it is Sunday morning and time to close so I can get in the shower and get ready for church. Then it will be time to do laundry again, hit the grocery store then pick up the girls. I am sorry that it can be long between posts but as you can read, life with two daughters and two parents working full time can be hectic. We beg your grace.

Time to Relax...

Last weekend The Wilson family invited us to enjoy some down time with them at Becky's parents condo in Pinehurst, Idaho located just West of the Silver Mountain Ski Resort. We joined them Saturday afternoon once the girls had completed their bball and cheerleading commitments. Saturday evening we enjoyed a great Italian dinner and had a fabulous time playing games. Sunday morning after breakfast we walked the girls to a sledding hill nearby. The photo to the left is Dave and Dax with "Tommy" the tomahawk. The girls enjoyed a snack before braving the sledding hill. Once everyone was done playing in the snow we returned to the condo and warmed up with some hot chocolate. Finally, we hung out until Superbowl time where we witness the heartbreak loss of the Cards to the Steelers. By the time we got home it was time to shower and get the girls tucked into bed in order to start our busy week of school (and work). The time away as a family was definately worth the stress of coming home to full laundry hampers and an empty fridge.

More More More More... Upward Cheer

Here are a couple of quick pic's that I took of the girls on picture day.

She shoots... She SCORES!

The girls run through a fog tunnel and their names are announced as they enter the gymnasium.

The referee huddles both teams up to review the rules and lead a prayer for the girls before tip off.

This is Brooke's first basket scored of many this game. In all, she made 8 baskets scoring 16 of the 24 points earned by her team. Talk about an MVP, that is 66%.

Brooke had a great time playing against her friend and neighbor Kyra.

Here is one of the highlights of the game. For a complete recap of the game, reply this clip 8 times. We are so proud of Brooke's performance today and look forward to watching her continue to shine on the court.
