Sports have always played a pretty big role in my life. We have been participating in them since before I can even remember. I always wanted my kids to be active in sports, because I feel like there are so many benefits from playing. In a world that is dominated by screens and technology, it is nice to interact with other people and get some physical activity in. I am excited to say that we signed up Aiden for baseball this year, and so far he is absolutely loving it! He ends almost every practice with a huge smile on his face and excitement for the next time he gets to play again. I say "almost every practice" because the last practice ended in tears, while he was batting the ball hit off his bat and into his chin which hurt. I encouraged him to finish his turn at bat, and he ended up getting a hit and running in the bases. :) Tough love for the win. Connor is having a hard time sitting on the sidelines, he wants so badly to play. We caved yesterday and bought him a little glove so that he can at least practice, and play catch with us when we go to the park. Aiden's first game is this week and I am so excited and so nervous for him, I did not realize you could get these kinds of butterflies for other people! Aiden playing a sport is also giving me a chance to work on some sports photography. I am hoping that as the season progresses I will get better and better.

|See the penny?!|
|Hooray! Penny Free!!!|
Even though we were in the emergency room the day before Aiden's birthday party, we were still able to pull off a pretty good party. Aiden had an amazing time, and I think everyone else did too, which at the end of the day is all that matters to me. We are so blessed to have such amazing family and friends that always make our parties successful. It is all about the wonderful people that we spend it with.
I put together a slideshow of some of the pictures of the party.
I hope you enjoy!
(I suggest making the slideshow larger so you can see the pictures. I will also be posting these pictures to Facebook, so feel free to enjoy them there as well!)

We do not get a whole lot of snow here in Kingman, Arizona, so even the smallest flurries are a pretty big deal to my little boys. The snow did not stick, so there were no snowmen made or snowball fights to be had but my kids found the joy in the moment they were given. They ran outside in their winter coats, desperately trying to catch the tiny flakes on their tiny tongues. It is so much fun to watch them experience little things, that so many take for granted. I love that something as pure and simple as a few snowflakes can make them so deliriously happy. I have a few things that I want to write about, including Aiden's birthday and Connor's emergency room trip but I am waiting for a few things to happen before I dive into those topics. Until then, please enjoy a few pictures of my boys enjoying a few snow flakes in our backyard.
