Bice on Ice, the Dream Team

Hannah's House League Team needed another solution? Add Matthew...he required permission to go from a non-checking league to a checking league...Our Favorite Martin obtained the permission necessary last week and he was good to go. It was a very good thing because that night, Hannah and another teammate were absent. Matthew defended the goal and Hannah's team won.

Last night, my two favorite players hit the ice together. Proudest Mom moment I might ever have in my life is when Matthew assisted Hannah's goal and they both gave each other a HUGE hug. I wish I had a picture but no, I will just have to remember the moment. I have some not so great pictures of my Dream Team. Yep, I am bragging...I love my kids.

And what would a post of mine be like without a swiped social media picture?

Trophy Presentation

Click on the link above to see Matthew receiving the Trophy for his team's wonderful efforts in South Bend last weekend. I am going to have to post links for the videos now since only half the video shows when I use the embedding method. I am posting his goal and assist winning goals below.

One Weekend. Two Championships

A great weekend of hockey for both of my players. Matthew's and Hannah's teams both won their tournaments this weekend. It's good day.

TOURNAMENT WINNER! v Trenton Enforcers 1/16/2017 68-Watts scores assisted by 11-Faulds and 6-Bice from Ben Faulds on Vimeo.

This is what 2 girls and a couple of boys can do

Back when it all began...this showed up as my FB memory

I promised Hannah a facial for not getting to go to South Bend this past weekend....

And We're Off!

Matthew has two games under his belt and Hannah starts her tournament at 12:50. Here are the photos I have so far (One I stole from Facebook and the other is a screenshot from Matthew's morning Snapchat to me).

It's Friday!

Friday is here and things are hopping. The boys are on a road trip to South Bend, Indiana for hockey and the girls are here for hockey at home. Hannah has a tournament so we were not able to join the boys for the hockey tournament up north but I am enjoying my girl time.

I will keep you updated on how the two tournaments are going and let's hope I have some pictures to share with you!

My Offensive Defenseman

Matthew's team didn't fare so well this weekend but my favorite defenseman was outstanding. He worked hard and never quit. I couldn't be prouder.

A little video of his goal this past weekend. Watch this boy skate. Love it!

For some reason, only half the video is showing. Try watching on the link below, you should be able to see the whole screen. M comes in from the right side to score.

Yesterday, I sent the kids back to school. I worked out and took a nap. I didn't realize our quiet Christmas Vacation was quite so exhausting...apparently, it was...because it was a long nap, a really long nap.

Last  night, we were back on schedule. I made dinner and took Matthew to the Rink. The kids were all bubbling over with mirth due to the announcement school was being canceled today for wintry weather. Here it is, 9:31 a.m. on Friday and it is cold and it is windy but there isn't any ice...or snow. I am a bit disappointed there is no snow. There is nothing like the quiet beauty of snow falling and being in the South, that doesn't happen much. 

There you have it...I sent the kids to school yesterday and today they're back...just like a boomerang.

I forgot to add these pics of Greg and Matthew from his 4 on 4 Tournament last week. Don't you love his hair??? I do. Who knew he had such beautiful locks of hair. I am so glad he decided to grow it out.
