Cheer Banquet

It's Thursday night.  Woo hoo!  This weekend is looking pretty quiet.  I'm ready to go to bed so here we go.

This is really the kind of season we are all having.  
 Back to last Friday.  The boys have found a few banks and are spreading the coins everywhere!

 They had to bring in 100 of something.  
 That night was Ariel's cheer banquet.  Back to our usual hangout, the Richboro Pub.  
 The girls and the twins love those games, when they are working.
 Angry Birds sadly was not.
 Coach Lynde put together a video of the season.  Most of it was my footage.  I'm the unofficial AV guy.  



Coach Lynde is also super creative.  Made these for each girl.  


 Eli was bored!
 She also made an award for each girl.  Ariel's was for empathy.  



 Amy bought the team gifts for the coaches.  Lynde sent us a pic enjoying her new socks!  They got those and massages and wine!  All stuff to help you relax.  Have a great weekend!

Cool New Car Seats

It's Wednesday night.  It's not fun taking the trash out when it's so cold.  We had Aden's Winter Concert tonight for band and chorus.  It was very nice.  We got over 100 new kids with the redistricting so things sadly will have to change.  There were too many people there!  Speaking of school, here is the entire 6th grade of Holland Elementary.  
 I wanted to get portable car seats in case we travel.  These turn into backpacks.  I got them from London through Amazon UK.  For some reason, they aren't sold here.  
 The boys were cutting out pictures from magazines.
 In backpack form.



 Help yourself Eli.
 Heather helping Eli with his letters.  
 And Ariel with her handstands.  
 Chillin' with my girlie.

 Ariel is always very busy with her dolls.  
 Aden had tennis on Thursday.  

 Poor Amy tried to clean up the playroom.  It's a lost cause.

The Blizzard of Dec. 2, 2019

 It's been kind of warm and rainy the last few days but tonight it's supposed to turn to a cold snow so we will see what it's like when we get up.  We really don't want another snow day already.  Speaking of snow days, we had one week!  These pics are from last Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.  

Sunday morning we took apart old legos.  
 Ariel got into some slime.  
 Amy and I and Aden and Ariel drove into Philly to meet Amy's mom, sister and Eva to see Shrek the Musical.  First we had a quick lunch.  
 Then we walked to the Walnut Street Theater.  
 We knew a bunch of people there!
 The show was very cute.  
 We all had a great time.  
 I saw this at the theater.  Pretty cool.  

That night was quiet.  
 Monday morning, we woke up to some snow.  The forecast was for a pretty good accumulation throughout the day.  All the area districts had a snow day.  I took Aden to the dentist early and it was pretty slippery.  
 But then it stopped and there was nothing!  That was a waste of a snow day.  
 I went to work and the twins had school so it wasn't too bad for Amy with the older ones.  
 I thought this was funny.  
 Tuesday night Ariel had dance.  

 Aden had basketball.  

 And that's it!
