Forever Young

Brandon had his last basketball game of the season this past Saturday. He is very much improved from when he started basketball last year. He can dribble pretty well and make baskets sometimes. I think we might try karate next and I am guessing he will love it! He is much more interested in fighting than playing with balls. We'll see....

This is Brandon and three friends after the game. The four of them all live in a row on our street. Our neighborhood is lots of fun! We really are thankful to have great neighbors and lots of kids for Brandon and Bekah to hang out with.

Yes, we had a great time at the circus. I think the motorcycles in the big metal cage were everyone's favorite part. (I don't know if you can tell, but that is what the third picture is of.) They started out with 2 motorcycles and ended up with 5 motorcycles riding around in the ball at the same time! It makes me think of my brother-in-law, Trey. He's crazy enough to actually try something like that!! Speaking of sister-in-law, Tessa is getting married in just a couple of weeks. She was only 7 when I started dating Todd! And now she is 22 and getting married.....gosh, that makes me OLD!!
We had a nice Valentine's Day yesterday. Todd planned and prepared a nice dinner for all of us. We got the kids sleds for Valentine's Day, and now we just hope they can use them before winter is over!

We don't have too much going on right now other than the usual, church, work, etc. It's finally really cold here, but still no snow!
We did get free tickets for the circus from some friends. So, we are looking forward to going there on Thursday night this week. Brandon has been before, but it will be Bekah's first experience at the circus. They both want to ride the ponies at the circus (Brandon got to do that the last time we went and he remembers). Bekah loves to "ride" anything. She will say "yeehaw" and try to ride whatever she can find. We need to get her one of those ponies on a stick for her to pretend to ride. Right now she'll use Brandon's swords or guns and run around the house with them between her legs and yell "yeehaw!" Anytime I lay down on the floor she tries to roll me over so she can "yeehaw" on my back! The other day she put her sippy cup down on the floor and straddled it and said "yeehaw!" What a silly girl!
Brandon has been going through a growth spurt lately. He's actually been eating, which is a change for him since he is never interested in that! I put some pants on him the other day that he had gotten for Christmas. At Christmas they were too big, but they fit just fine now! In just a short while we will be planning his 6th birthday!!! That's crazy!!!
