Our final Jazz game from Santa was on February 16 against the Golden State Warriors. We weren't able to pull out the win this time. The final score was 100-107. We still had a great time cheering on our team and hope to be able to go to more games soon. Let's hope the Jazz start winning again. :)
My Damon is 10. I can't believe it. He has been waiting for this day for quite a while. He took almost a year's worth of piano lessons in order to get his very own guitar. His cousin Alex is quite the guitar player and he would like to be able to play like him. My brother is also a great guitar player and is planning to teach him lessons. He had his first lesson yesterday and is already able to switch between a couple chords. The first song he wants to learn to play is Smooth Criminal by none other than Michael Jackson! I am excited to hear him practice as he learns to play.
For his birthday we went to Classic Skating with his cousins and friends from school. They seemed to all have a good time and it is much easier than having 20 boys at my house. :)
As part of the party he got to go into the ticket blaster and catch as many tickets as he could in 45 seconds. Then he got to spin the prize wheel where the BIG prize was $10! He was lucky enough to actually win the BIG prize!!
Here we are after skating with all the cousins sleeping at our house. In all (including my 4 boys) we had 12 boys sleeping over! Good times indeed!
Here they are playing the Michael Jackson Experience game. Love it!
I can hardly believe it has been 10 years since I became a mom! Love you Damon Paul!
Jazz game #2 was on January 14 against the Cavs. Jazz won 121-99! It was awesome. Damon and Brady are really starting to understand and get involved. We had a great time. We made some signs, but didn't ever get put up on the big screen. Maybe next time. :) Me and my boys! Raja Bell came out to shoot around before the game. We were hoping to get his autograph on Brady's jersey and our Jazz ball, but it was too close to game time and he had to hurry into the locker room.
Big T Bailey is so nice...and so tall!
Big Al Jefferson
Coach Jerry Sloan
Watching them shoot around before the game.
Patiently waiting to get some autographs. We got a total of 8 signatures on our Jazz ball that we will take to the next game and hopefully add to that. :)
Evan celebrated his 6th Birthday at Pirate Island. Aunt Carrie made him an amazing Pirate cake and we all had so much fun. He invited a few friends from his Kindergarten class to come celebrate with him. Here are a few pictures from our day.
Santa brought us Jazz tickets this year and each of our boys get to go to 2 games. We are so excited. Our first game was on January 3 against the Detroit Pistons. Brady and Evan were the lucky ones that got to come first. We had such a good time. They each also got $10 fanzz gift cards to spend on more Jazz gear at the game. Jazz won 102-97! Here we are all decked out in our Jazz gear! Evan
Brady (totally chillin)
our view of the court
We got to the game early and went down to watch some of the players warm up and were fortunate enough to get a few autographs. Here is Mehmet Okur!
We had a great Christmas this year. Santa brought lots of fun things for the boys. Here are just a few pictures of our day. This picture is Christmas afternoon on the way to Grandma Karren's house. The boys must have been tired from all the present opening because they all fell asleep. :) Sean got a Buzz and Woody from Santa. He loves them.
Damon got Sean this singing alligator from an auction at school.
Damon and Brady both asked Santa for Lego sets. We spent most of the day building all of them.
Evan wants to learn to be a magician so he asked Santa for the Criss Angel magic kit.
Evan with Star Wars the Clone Wars for PS3.
Damon got the Michael Jackson dance game for the Wii. Spending time learning all of Michael's moves is one of our new favorite things to do.
The boys all got Jazz jerseys along with tickets to go to 2 games each in their stockings. We are so excited to go cheer on the Jazz!
