Levi's Birthday Celebrations

Happy birthday to our 12 year old, Levi!! 



We had a busy weekend celebrating Levi's birthday!

Friday I took cupcakes to his class:


Everyone loved the poop emijo theme:


When we got home from school, Levi opened his card and gift from Grandma & Grandpa:


For dinner we went to Earls and Levi got a signed Oilers puck:



He was very surprised and happy!


The party continued Saturday night... we went to Galaxyland for an evening of all you can ride fun!



and Sunday was Levi's family party:


Levi wanted his own cake, so I made a big cake for all of us to share and then a little cake - just for the birthday boy!

Zack & Levi's Soccer Season

Both Levi and Zack played indoor soccer this year. They both loved it and can't wait for next season to start!

Zack played goalie a lot and really enjoyed it. He took to the position really quick and was quite good!


Zack also played forward and scored 3 goals this season. He's number 13 :)



Levi played center forward and had an amazing season. He scored 43 goals and had 32 assists! Watching his games was very exciting!



This is a video I managed to capture of Levi scoring during the city finals, Levi is number 19, wearing white (sorry for the screaming, the lady beside me was really loud and when he scored we were all really excited!) Seriously, turn your volume down before you watch this ;)


Levi's team won gold in the city finals!



And then gold in the provincial finals! Yay! They beat out Calgary 4-1 for the win ;)

Family Ski Night

Saturday night we went skiing together as a family. The boys are all pretty good skiers, so it was fun to be able to ski together!

Oilers Skills Competition

On Saturday we went to the Oilers Skills Competition. We all put on our Oilers jerseys and cheered on our favorite team.


We had really good seats, so we got to see all the action up close. It was a really fun afternoon!
