It's Been Awhile. . .

. . . since my last post.  So, here is what we have been up to since November:

Of course, I couldn't have a post without mentioning soccer, since we live at the soccer field most of the time.  Sadie's team won two tournaments and took 1st place in the U11/U12 Rec + Division:

Lizzy's team also won one tournament and took 1st place in the U13/14 Rec + Division:

Silas' team won all but one game this past seaon.  He scored so many goals, I lost count:

He has decided to not play this Spring, but will be playing baseball instead.  I am a little sad about this, because I enjoyed watching him play soccer so much.

Henry's soccer team came in 3rd out of 5 teams.  Unfortunately, I didn't get any good pics of him playing with his team.  They were all blurry.  But, I will have more opportunities this Spring, as he has decided to continue with soccer instead of playing baseball.  (Don't ask Aaron how he feels about this :)).  

Sophie had another "mini" recital:

Isn't she pretty?  Her big recital is coming up in May.  She has started practicing her new routine and had their costume fittings.  She is so excited and I can't wait to see her.

Samuel celebrated his 15th birthday:

He wanted triple banana delight for his "cake" and he got a bowling ball and a bag to carry it in.  He is still enjoying his league every Wednesday afternoon.  He is bringing his average up every week it seems.  

And, Nicky has been hanging out having fun:

Lizzy, Sadie and Samuel entered the Ugly Christmas Sweater contest at church.  Samuel took his off before I could a picture.  Can you believe they didn't win?

We had a fun Christmas.  Here are the kids in the new Christmas jammies striking a pose.  They love opening their jammies up on Christmas Eve.  We had a blessed year and are looking forward to 2014!
