The Miami Heat were on TV this afternoon. When I came back from my run, the fellas were watching it. There was two minutes left of the game and I decided to stretch and watch it with them. Link looks at the TV and yells, "Come on guys!!!! Get your hands up!" We have created two basketball monsters.

The guys are doing so awesome at basketball. Nate and I are having a blast watching them play better and better each week. This morning before the first game, Link's friend had a b/day party at Pump-it-Up. The guys played hard and were worn out.
This picture was taken within the first five minutes of the game. Link hadn't even been in, yet! Luckily he played super hard once they got started!
Lincoln saw me with my camera and decided to pose while in the midst of the game!!! Ethan's game was so fun to watch today. We felt like the teams were matched up pretty well. The players were very respectful and courteous on both teams. Ethan was amazing today. He was so aggressive and tried to shoot many times! At one point in the game he was paired up with the biggest fella on the opposing team, who happened to be a very sweet guy. It was fun to watch the match-up.
I got this video of Ethan stealing the ball and then getting knocked down. Poor guy really got hurt. The coach took him out, but he was ready to jump back in a few minutes later!
We had so much fun today! Both boys made us super proud today. Lincoln was awarded the offensive player star and Ethan was awarded best effort and most Christlike!!

We are considering going to Disney during Spring Break. It all depends on our next assignment. In order to get Link ready for all the walking we will do, I have been taking him out for a walk every afternoon before Ethan's bus arrives. Two days ago, we were walking and Link says, "We better get to the bus stop before someone kills my poor Ethan." I have no clue where this kid gets his dramatic attitude!
He has really been enjoying his walks. It's very rainy today. He asked if we would get our walk in and I told him that it was doubtful. So, he told me to just bring a towel.

I think Mommy, Daddy, and Ethan are LOVING the warmer weather, but Link loves his sweatshirts!

Nate's God daughter, Ariana, was baptized today.
Ariana and the boys were terrific during Mass today.
Ariana became so fussy after the actual baptism. She is usually so happy. When the ceremony was over, Nate told me that the water was SUPER cold! Poor thing! :)
It was such a nice day! We are thankful to have them in our lives!

The boy is turning into a little encyclopedia. The other night, while looking at a shark book, he said, "Do you think this is a remora?" "Ughhhh (silent pause and look to Nate...who gave me the same look) what do you think, Buddy?" "I think it is" he said. Apparently, a remora is a suckerfish that lives on sharks.
I begged him to bring a fiction book home tonight and he sighed and said ok! Such sacrifice!

Ok, if you are so clever just do it yourself.
I know that that Sprite burns my eyes, but I like.
I can't believe I misspelled Ankylosaurus.
Is is bad to freak people out?
How many full family days do we have left?
Could you watch Dead Man's Chest and tell me everything?
(after time out) I am so mad at my mind for doing bad stuff.
Who came out of the belly first, you or Uncle Josh?
