What an exciting game.  A little too close for me.  They won UCLA in five games by 2 points.  This was very good VB to watch.  These guys have got some power when they hit the ball.  They can really get up high too.  Tonight they play at Long Beach City College in a Tournament that last through tomorrow.  We had a great Lasagna dinner at our home after the win.

Another Beautiful Day...Ryan Home this week for VB

Here is Ryan working with Becca on her VB game with Nathan looking on.  We are having the UVU A team over today for lunch, before they play at UCLA.  Should be fun to see how they do.  We had four of Ryan's VB teammates spend the night last night. 
Such a warm day today. 
Nathan and I are so lucky to get to take walks along the beach twice a week.  We love going to the Redondo open air market and getting popcorn and tangerines.  They had great green beans and strawberries today too.

Peaceful night! Jan. 17, 2009 Saturday

A great warm weather night in January, fun walk and camera to capture the moments.  We have been having amazing warm weather.  I had been sick during most of it.  This was one night I finally felt well enough to go out and enjoy our lovely beach.  Good to be well again.  I appreciate my health.
One of my favorites down at the beach.
This is for you Sandi-  Inspiration
Coming Sunset and glowing wave.
Last wave of the day!  Loved watching all the surfers at sunset.  The beach was just gorgeous tonight.  Grateful to live so close to it.

Can you guess who these characters are?

The artist has signed her name.  Sandi couldn't resist drawing at the lunch table.  She had everything she needed, live models and paper and crayon.  In case your wondering who's who? Rebecca is the one on the far left with braces.  Ryan with Sandi's names signed below him.  Then Kelly next with Rachel on the far right.

More Christmas

Nathan was having a pretty fun Christmas day I'd say.

Uncle Ryan showing Nathan something fun on the computer.
This was one of Scott's favorite gifts he gave this Christmas.  He was very excited to give this Utah Jazz shirt to Nathan.  If you know Nathan's dad Kevin, he is a HUGE Laker's fan.  The Jazz is not a team he cares for too much.  This was way to fun.  If you look close you can see Scott in the back round smiling.  Kevin took this in stride.  He is a very good sport. 
 We all had a good laugh about it.  

Nathan is sporting the hat Ryan hand knit him!

Nathan Cracking up-

Here Nathan is cracking up cause the funny line in the book was just said: "Now giddadda here!"

Becca, Nathan and Ryan January 2, 2009

This is one of Nathan's favorite books that Ryan is reading to him.  It's called "Charlie the Caterpillar".  There are a few pages that just crack him up and he laughs every time you read them.  He wants them read over and over too.
Here are the kids all together before Rachel, Kelly and Ryan go back to school.  They were having fun looking up some funny things on you tube.  Scott and I loved having everyone home.
