Darren and I were really proud of Jax during this season of basketball. There's no humble way to say this, but I think it's okay because it's a fact... Jax was the best player on his team!!! Jax was placed on a team that sincerely seemed "young" and almost didn't even know how to dribble the basketball (quite frustrating for someone who has such knowledge of the game). Jax did have a female teammate that was very impressive though; I believe her name was Parker. He enjoyed having someone he could rely on. Either way, Jax was such an extremely fair and helpful teammate. He passed the ball, instead of being a ball hog, when he could have easily stolen the show. He was an amazing defensive player. He always had his hands up. This league didn't allow the ball to be "stolen". Basically, each player had to wait for the ball to go out of bounds or wait for the opposing player to loose control of the ball. That rule was so hard for Jax to follow, even though he did follow it and well, because he knows the sport and knows that that's not "real basketball", as he had said over and over again, on the way to each game. The idea behind this league is just to simply increase the players knowledge of the game and to teach them how to be a good team player. It was a short 6 weeks, but Jax did a fantastic job and we can't wait to watch him play "REAL" baseball this April. I am so glad he's finally old enough to let his light and skills shine!!!
Capturing a good photo in the gym was so hard! I am having the same issues during Ty's basketball games. I may have to look into a new flash or lens before next season.
Receiving his trophy! Shy guy!
Jax received his trophy, but was too shy to let me take his picture. I begged and begged, but he started to cry, so I let him be. His trophy now sits on his dresser for all to see! He didn't seem to get overly excited about it. He said, "I already have a trophy!" LOL!

OUR FAMILY MOTTO
Our Blog Readers
Darren is a dedicated, faithful, and an involved husband, parent, and worker. He is the best team player I could ask for. He is also a follower of Christ and has the HUGE responsibility of leading our family to the cross. His greatest physical attribute is his smile. He's also more giving than 10 people combined. God has blessed him with the gift of giving. He enjoys tender love from his "wifey", playing with his children, football, and working out. He has more energy than I can understand.
OUR FIRST BORN SON
Tyson, aka "Ty", was the first blessing God gave to us. He is your typical boy, rambunctious with a capital R. He is very smart, goofy, sweet, handsome, and a definite leader. He has been told that he is the spitting image of his daddy. He enjoys spending time with his siblings, playing play-station/ipod, and doing anything relating to all sports, especially football. His favorite place to go on vacation is Myrtle Beach aka “my beach”. He also is learning the importance of obedience and loving the Lord.
OUR ONLY DAUGHTER
Lilah is a twin to her brother Jaxon. She is bubbly and full of laughter. Her personality gives her the rap of being “sweet & sassy”. LOL! Just like her mommy. She's infatuated with her blankie aka “baby” as well as her daddy! She's has a great head of hair, is petite, and extremely fun to dress. Simply ALL GIRL! Some of her favorite things to do are sing, dance, play “mom”, and apply make-up, using her new vanity. I am so glad God blessed me with a little sidekick. The extra estrogen has become more than evident in our home.
OUR LAST BORN
Jaxon is a twin to his sister Lilah. He is well known by his nickname "Jax" or “Jaxey”. He is by far the sweetest kid we have. He is so helpful, so appreciative, so loving, and aims to please. His favorite things are playing with his big brother and sissy, cooking/baking with mommy, and spending time with his buddy Cohen. His current loves are basketball, wrestlers, and the Great Wolf Lodge. There's nothing MORE that I love than his beautiful dimples and tender kissies. He truly is a love bug!!! He’s the he kind of human that would give you the shirt off of his back.
