It's That Time of Year, Again

I can't believe it that it is January again and that basketball season has started. The kids are once again in the Rocklin High School Little Thunder League. Julia is on the Cougars, Thomas is on the Hawks, and Macie is on the Rage. There weren't enough girls for Macie to play so they have put her in the Rocklin Rec. League. She practices on Friday nights and plays on Saturday mornings. Last Sat. Thomas made a 3 pointer and made 3 regular baskets for a grand total of 9 points and his team won. He was soooo excited. Julia has been learning how to keep her hands up and try not to let the other team make a basket. She gets to be on the team with her best bud, Billie Mae Bates. They are so cute playing together. We had to tell the girls the first week to let the other one play and not follow each other around. I love watching them play. Matthew will get to participate next year as he will be in Kindergarten. Watch out world Matthew is coming. :) Anyway, happy January and all the basketball that comes with it.
Tom and I got to go out on a date Friday night. Mom babysat and we went to the movies. We saw Leap Year. We both loved it. It was a classic romantic comedy with humor. We would definately see it again. It was nice being by ourselves, but of course we spent most of our time talking about the kids. :)

Hay, Happy New Year!! :)

Well the Hay Gang made it to another year. Welcome 2010! One person here at the Hay House is very excited for 2010 because it is the year he turns 2 digits, you know 10. Thomas is thrilled to be into the year 2010. We welcomed the new year in Hay House style. We were going to have another family come over, but they couldn't come. The gang was a little disappointed, but it turned out all right and we had a ball. We rented 7 movies and watch 3 last night and 2 more this morning. We started the night out eating candy and watching Paul Blart-Mall Cop. It was very funny. Then onto homemade pizza and watching UP and then ice cream sundaes while we waited for the Ball to drop in NYC. At 11:45p.m. we put on our party hats and plastic leis and started blowing our horns. We counted down from 10 to 1 and then yelled and blew our horns. Not one Hay Gang member fell asleep and we were in bed by 12:05p.m. We had some fun! The only thing we missed was the sparkling cider and they usually get that on New Year's Eve so the gang was a bit sad about that. Happy New Year!
