Happy Valentine's Day 2011

For Valentine's Day, Amy made the family a red velvet cake.

The kids helped ice the cake.

Owen thought licking the spoon was quite tasty!

This was the first time Amy made a layer cake and it was awesome. We (O.K., mostly I) finished the cake in 2 days! Here's Luke giving his sign of approval.

3-2-1 Blastoff!

The kids were recently treated to their own personal NASA exhibition courtesy of our next door neighbor's sons. Luke & Owen were psyched that Sam and Matt made them both rockets of their own.

They even made Rory her own rocket!

The launch was serious business. Here Sam is setting up the launch camera (& the launch pad warning).

Rory was ready for the countdown.

The countdown, 10 - 9 - 8 ....

Here are the boys with their new friends, "rocket scientists," Sam and Matt. They even ran down the street to retrieve the rockets so the boys would have souvenirs. Everyone had a great time. A big thanks to Sam (Sr.) and Toni for hosting the exciting launch.

Jr. RedHawk of the Game

Yep, it has been a while. Life has been quite hectic, but we can't complain. We are truly blessed. We are going to try our best to update our site more frequently this year. Let's see how that goes...

First, we want to wish Grandpa all the best. He is the original superhero!

This past weekend, Luke was the Jr. RedHawk of the Game for the opening game of the Michigan vs. Miami series. Special thanks to Randy for capturing Luke's big moment!

Here's Luke taking the face-off against Chris Wideman. Luke's favorite player, Justin Vaive, dropped the puck. (Picture courtesy of Miami University Athletics)

Here's Luke from earlier this fall.

Luke's team, the Gators. Well, this is about half his team. The other half of the team did not make it to practice that day.

More pics coming real soon (probably on Saturday). Stay tuned...
