Houston hockey.

We made a quick trip to Houston recently with Hockey Boy's travel team. In addition to seeing Will's three games, we were able to go to my niece Mary Grace's 3rd birthday party and I was able to squeeze in a short visit with my sweet friend Kim from 3 Peanuts (no pictures from that, sadly!). All in all a very fun weekend.

At Mary Grace's party - she ran over to us when we walked in and exclaimed, "Vivi's here! Vivi's here!" It was so very sweet and really warmed my heart

Dots enjoyed seeing her cousins at the party

After the party Vivian had fun with the sidewalk chalk at my brother's house

It's always great to have extra fans at a hockey game!

The boys were very interested in the game and loved spotting their cousin Will on the ice (Vivian, on the other hand, would prefer
Dora on her iPod Touch to a hockey game any day!)

Robert held up Mary Grace so she could see better

Watching for Will

There he is!

Although Mary Grace loved watching her cousin during the game, she was petrified of him off the ice in his uniform and skates!

My brother, my nephew and me with Will after the game. Did I mention Will scored the game-winning goal with under a minute left? Hence the big smile!

After the game my brother kindly invited the girls back to his house so Robert and I could enjoy dinner out with the team. I thought this was a cute picture of Will

Congrats to Will! Loved seeing these pics as well as the ones from his choir trip-- especially the candid ones of him! :)

Great pictures! And I did notice Hockey Boy's madras jacket from last post. So cool... and he is so cute!

I have to be careful and kind of cool when I find clothes for my EIGHT-yr-old boy. I can't imagine what it will be like when he's 18 - LOL!

Oh, and congrats on the winning goal!

I've only been to Houston once, when we moved my daughter there in July (whoa....can you say hot?) It looks like you had a great weekend!

Congrats to Will! Isn't amazing how cousins can favor each other? I see that in Dots and your nephew. It's the same way with my son and nephew - they look like they could be brothers!
