Tough day for both teams….

Little Lady’s team lost 34 to 18.  Little Man’s team lost on a last second shot.
Ouch… Nobody on his team played well.


Little Man had fun this year.  Basketball is really starting to click with him.


Little Lady took some good pictures.


Little Man went over to his friends house… they played with their Halo
action figures and pretended to blow stuff up!


Little Lady and her friend came over and they make this cool village!
(see following close ups)

For the Cub Scout pack meeting, the Dads and boys were supposed to
make a cake.

Little Man and I make a bundt cake in the shape of a house.

Because of work, I did not get home in time to finish it.  Mom stepped up
to the plate and made it better than I could have. (Little Man helped quite
a bit as well)


Here’s the backside of the cake.  The chimney “smoke” is whipped cream.


The boys reached their popcorn sales goal, so the boys got to throw
pies at the adult leaders!


We liked the pinewood derby cake (entirely edible)


More cakes!  (the red one is a camp fire)

We had our Christmas lunch at work.

Santa came by and gave some gifts to us.  We all got an NBC
Super Bowl polo shirt.

Coming off her illness, Little Lady tried her heart out.

After the game, she shared out snacks with some of the other team…
she is a great sport!

After his basketball game, Little Man and I played ping pong.

This week was the first time we actually hit it back and forth.


Check out this pimp daddy car!

It is an old… 80’s??? Caddy  WITH SIX DOORS!

It has three rows of leather seats!

Little Lady has a good imagination.  She made all of this herself.

You can be….
Poor, famous, regular or a rock star.  Pretty much all of the
choices in life…

Little Man is warming up for his basketball game.  He was the leading
scorer on his team!  He scored 6 points including a loooooong shot.

In addition, he played good defense and landed several rebounds.


My friend got a Big Green Egg for his birthday!

I helped him set it up.
(he smoked a chicken the next day… and it was wonderful!)


We had an eggcellent time!

Little Lady drew this….

It is Mom and Dad thinking kissy, kissy thoughts of one another.

Little Lady had a fever and a cough.  Mom stayed home with her
on Friday.  It turns out, she had walking pneumonia!

Here in the picture, Little Lady and I were about to watch out sick kid
tradition, The Price is Right.
