Barnes and Noble Mini Recital

If you are in the mood for some Christmas music, I have just the thing for you. Here are the kids playing their Christmas pieces at Barnes and Noble this past Saturday. They all did an incredible job. You may have to click on the link to my blog to be able to see them. Enjoy!

Wildcats Take 2nd Place

Sadie's team took 2nd in the BASC Tournament U12 Division this past weekend.  They fought hard in the final game, but couldn't get another goal in.  It was a heartbreaker and they lost 2-1.  This is a great group of girls. 

So, soccer season has come to end until January, when we will start indoor.  All the girls had a great season and can't wait to start again.

Kitty Kitty, our new kitten

We have a new addition to the family.  The kids call her Socks, I call her Kitty Kitty.  We have high hopes for this little girl.  She is going to keep all those rodents far, far away from the Goff Manor, as soon as she weighs more than they do :) 

She runs and hides from Nicky, as soon as she sees him coming for her.  He is known to pick her wrong side up or by the neck or just hold her with one hand.  Wonder why she doesn't like him?

Turkey Shootout U13 Champions!

Lizzy's soccer team, Eclipse, attended the Turkey Shootout in Edmond this past weekend and won their division.  It was a very exciting championship game, to say the least.  We were very proud of Lizzy for setting up our forward to score the winning goal in the final 30 seconds of the game.  It was awesome!  Way to go Eclipse!

Halloween 2012

Here they are dressed in their costumes this year, with the exception of Sam.  He felt he was too old to dress up.  We took them to a Trunk or Treat at a local church, and then we went to our church for their regular Wednesday night service.  Sadie went as a cheerleader, Lizzy a princess, Sophie went as Princess Adelina (from a book we have), Henry a soldier, Silas is the Hulk (again), and Nicky is Derek Jeter from the Yankees.

Lizzy Beth

 We had a bit of a scare this weekend w/ Lizzy.  She was playing in a soccer tournament and took a ball to the left side of her face, trying to keep the other team from scoring the winning goal.  Well, she succeeded, but took the force of the direct kick right to the head.   She grabbed her head, but stayed in the game.  Fortunately, there was only a minute or two left in the game and they ended in a tie, 1-1, thanks to her.  As we were leaving, she started crying and saying she couldn't see very clearly out of her left eye.  As soon as I pulled into the driveway at home, she started to throwing up and was having difficulty walking.  So, Aaron and I took her to the ER, where they did a CT scan.  Everything came back normal,  and she was diagnosed with a concussion.  She will be out for a few days from soccer.  But, she is feeling tons better.  No more dizziness, headaches or nausea.   

Our church sent her some balloons and a bag full of candy and cookies to help the healing process ;)

The Best $15 I've Ever Spent

I bought this box of play doh at Wal-Mart on clearance the other day.  My kids have gotten many hours of out of it.  I would much rather them doing things like this than sitting in front of the TV, and it was much cheaper than an XBOX or Wii game :).

Just wanted to mention that Sophie scored 4 goals this day, and helped her team win 7-3!   It was her team's first win in 3 seasons!

Nicky's Favorite Game is . . .

 guessing "which hand."  He wants you to guess which hand the play doh is in :)
