Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Half my girls with our trophy!!
Woohoo, we ended this volleyball season with a bang! We are going down in the record books as the first team to place in a major tournament.  We even got a trophy, which is super exciting because the only trophies the school has are for chess tournaments. We won 4 out of 5 matches, winning the consolation bracket.  The girls all signed a ball, and a clipboard for me to commemorate the season. I ended up breaking a clipboard because I was so excited during a match, er go the clipboard they gifted me. I did not realize that the tournament was going to take so long, we had made plans to host game night for our friends the same night. I ended up being late to our own game night! It was well worth it to see my girls play to their potential, it was one of the proudest moments of my life. Despite the wonderful experience coaching was, I am pretty excited to have more time at home.  It is so nice to be able to turn my focus to taking care of the house, planning the wedding, having dinner on the table and extra play time with Aiden. This week I ordered my wedding dress, the main components of my centerpieces, and am planning to get Dave and Aiden fitted for their wedding wear this weekend. Busy, busy, busy but excited that things are starting to come together!

Dancing, Cheetos, Life :)

This week has been another crazy week. I have been to California the past two weekends, and am looking forward to the limited driving of the weekend to come.  I had to decide on a wedding venue this weekend, and I am happy to say that we finally chose a place.  I have only seen pictures, but it looks beautiful. I hope that everyone likes it because it took a lot of work picking the place.  This is my last week of volleyball, we finished our season of with a record of 5-5. Not so bad for my first head coaching gig, at least we broke even.  We have our end of the year tournament on Saturday, it would be really great if my girls could place but they tend to choke under pressure. Aiden is going to miss going to Dave's school everyday, he had made a lot of friends and loves visiting his Daddy.  Everyday around 3, he runs to the front door and says "bye" because he knows that it is time to go to practice.  I am hoping that it does not take him long to get over the disappointment of staying home.  By now, you should have received your Save the Dates, did you all find the hidden Mickey? Unfortunately, I still have not found my camera but I do have a video that really shows off Aiden's dancing skills. Enjoy! :)

Aiden in the Kitchen

Bad news, my camera has gone missing so I do not have any photos this week.  I had a couple of really cute ones this past weekend of Aiden, but hopefully I can post them next week. For now, enjoy this video of Aiden working in the kitchen. He LOVES helping me cook in the kitchen, so I gave him some bowls and spices to do some of his own cooking. :)

Nothing But Photos!



I know that I said nothing but photos in the title but I wanted to comment on the bottom photo in the right corner. This is where Aiden ended up when I put him down for a nap. He climbed up into his rocking chair, and onto his dresser; so he could stand up in the window.  He has becoming a crazy adventurous climber lately, everyday he discovers a new place and way to climb up and get into trouble. We are headed to California this weekend for a wedding, and Aiden gets some quality grandparent time! :) I think everyone is pretty excited about it. Hopefully I will have some good pictures to post next week!

Plenty of Photos!

Award Winning Smile!
He Likes to Pose for the Camera!
I have been super proud of my food skills these past two weeks, we have eaten in every night and they have been good meals! :) Tonight, we had some delicious shredded pork tacos. I cooked the pork in a homemade green sauce, and it was quite scrumptious! Aiden loves to help me cook, and he is a really good helper. I let him put several ingredients in the mixer when I make cookies, and he gets so excited when I turn it on.  I think I have a little chef in the making, he is particularly good at adding salt and pepper to all our dishes.  We have started to ease our way into the potty training world, Aiden know the word "Potty" and that it means we are going to the bathroom. I am hoping that it is not too hard to train him, but we will see. Everything is an adventure with this little one. We got our Save the Dates in the mail this week, so watch your mailboxes. There is a hidden mickey on them, so keep your eyes peeled. Dave could not find it, so do not feel too bad if you cannot. Wedding planning is stressful, but I am plugging along and slowly checking things off my list. Thanks for checking in on the blog this week! :)
