Here they are Ridgewood Rebels, Regional Champs. Yes that is what I said, Regional Champs. Coached by the great Karl Frixen. For those of you who do not know, Karl was the Head Varsity Womens Basketball Coach at Ridgewood High School this past season. They struggled this season with a regular season record of 3 and 20. Well here you play in regional games no matter what your record is, and if you lose your season is over. Well they played Chicago Academy, whose record was 15 and 11 or something like that, for their first regional game. The Rebels went on to win by 25 points. We all thought that was it, but then they went on to play last friday. They played Gordon Tech, they played this team the first game of the season and lost by 20 + points. Well, we all went to the game and it was AWESOME. The end of the first quarter we were down 11- 1 and then from then on we got it together and it was a 2 or 3 point ball game the rest of the way. We ended up winning by 2 points. They then advanced to the next round, sectionals, but the girls just didn't have it in them and they lost tuesday so the season is now over. Karl ended his first season as a head coach with a 5 and 20 over all record and a regional win, what a way to end the season. We are all very happy and proud of Karl and next year we are hoping for some more wins, it looks good.

Well now that I have bragged about my wonderful husband, I will let you all get back to your day. Oh, the kids are doing great as well, theyare very happy to have their daddy back full time since the season is over. I am happy as well. Gavin is almost walking, he took one step the other day, sorry Karl I forgot all about it, ya know the third kid. Ella is sassy as ever, too much winter and in the house I guess. Kylie is still loving school. Me, I am good tired of the weather, this winter has been awful. Spring is almost here, well at least that is what I keep telling myself. Well enough about us. Hope everyone is doing good we miss and love you all.

This is what happens when mom is helping Kylie with homework, and dad is in the living room with Ella. I knew he was doing this but he was quiet and content so I left him to his work. He got into the snacks and the cup cabinet, he was very proud of himself!

Hey, where are my pants!!!
Oh, there they are

This is how I find Gavin pretty much everyday. He somehow crawls out of his pants at least once a day and I don't know how he does it, because the pants fit fine, how well, it makes for a nice little laugh every once in a while

This years cake theme was a guitar. Here is my creation. It turned out ok, I wasn't super happy with it, but Kylie loved it so that is all that counts.

Well, Kylie is 6, can you believe it? I sure can't. We had a little celebration on her birthday with basketball cake and subway, her favorite place to eat. She had her first ever friends party at build a bear and I do not have any pictures due to the fact I forgot my camera. she had fun and so did the rest of her friends.

As for Gavin and Ella, they are good, both had a HORRIBLE cold. I think it was the worst they have ever had. They are better now, still a little cough but doing tons better.
