A Little Bit About Me

I am a SAHM of 3. I have to sons and 1 daughter. My life is full of adventures as my children are all VERY active. I live in a small town in Upper Michigan. I blog when I have enough free time to write. Hopefully I will be able to this alittle more often than I have been. I really want to learn how to make my blog a success. I appreciate every one of my followers. Once I get myself up and running I am hoping to be able to give back to all of you.

    I'm not sure basketball is suppose to be a contact sport.  Maybe if you were participating in extreme basketball. 
   Our team and the teams we play against ( I have noticed over the last few years) are very competitive.  They always end up with alot of fouls being called.  When it comes to holding on to the ball to get a jump ball neither lets go.  They don't care if the other player is swinging them around in circles, they hold on like someone superglued them there.
  Last night was our 4th game into the season.  The seasons for the younger kids don't last very long.  we have 5 weeks of reagular games and 4 tournaments left for our season.
  When the season started me had 2 boys on injured reserve. One had broken his knee during the summer and the other broke his shoulder in November.  It was great when both boys got their medical release to play again.  Our team was back to complete.
  Last night at the basketball game, my oldest son was going for the ball.  Apparently he didn't see that someones foot was in his path, he tripped of course.  He hit the floor pretty hard and got up crying.  A trip the the emergency room followed the game.  He broke his humerus. 
  I think his season is over for the year.   Though we will not know for sure until Thursday when he sees the orthopedic surgeon.  So he is now on the injured reserve list aling with one of his buddies who broke his foot last week.

I recently won a Ganz Bear in a giveaway from Between The Lines.  It is so soft, cuddley and completely adorable as u can see.  The fur on it is very fluffy and soft. 

My little one isn't much into stuffed toys or dolls yet but she is always hugging and holding her Ganz.  She cuddles with it at bedtime and always wants to have it with her when she is playing around the house or when we go anywhere.  It has become our "Don't Leave Home Without It" toy.

I love the way the bear is made and so does Annalise.
