November to the New Year

I am not much of a blogger anymore, but I still want to try to get at least one post up a month so I have a record of our quickly growing boys and their active lives.

Toby had a fun soccer season, which wrapped up in November. His team was full of talented and motivated players - a great group of kids! Toby scored goals almost every game. He loves the sport and is very driven when he is on the field. We loved watching him play.
We had a quiet Thanksgiving, just the four of us, but somehow that made it extra special. We are so thankful for our little clan. Asher flashed a huge smile for me AFTER his Thanksgiving program at preschool, but spent the actual program feeling shy and hiding his face behind his hands. (It was still cute.)

Matt, Sara and Bella visited the first week of December. Having a baby in the house was so fun for all of us and we all fell in love with Bella.

School Christmas programs (this time Asher sang confidently), parties, and shopping carried us through most of December. Toby got one of his Christmas gifts early: tickets to Disney on Ice from Uncle David and Auntie Kristi! It was neat to drive in to LA and go to a show at the Staples Center (where the LA Lakers play). The boys were captivated by the amazing performances, costumes, and music.

I love Christmas! So glad my parents could spend it with us!

We spent the morning of New Year's Day watching the Rose Parade, but not on TV! With Debbie living so close to the parade route and the boys being old enough to sit through it, I decided this was the year to be there in person. It was totally worth it! It was a beautiful day. Looking forward to 2010. Happy New Year!

Susanna, I love your posts and pictures! How fun to see the parade from the sidewalk!!!! It would be great to see Toby playing soccer--I can imagine the intensity and his excitement! Looks like it was a fun Christmas--We missed having you all here---we did have snow, but it was after Christmas. Have to have the Bundys here for snow!!!! I know you are enjoying your parents there. Love, A. Dianne

Susanna, your blog was worth waiting for!!! Loved all the pictures! How we miss seeing the boys programs, watching their games etc. They are so precious. So glad your parents could be there for Christmas. Next Christmas you'll have ANOTHER little one! This was a good year to see the parade in year will be a bit more difficult. Love, Mora/Mom/Nana

Hi Sue! I haven't been on your blog in so long {because I haven't blogged in a while, but have jumped back on the bandwagon}! Anyway, your pictures are delightful and your boys are so big! I do hope we can see you in Feb, even for a day. Say hi to the family! And, I hope you are finding time to rest! Blessings.
