How can it be?

How does time pass so quickly without any updates to this blog? Sometimes we're just so busy that there isn't the time or energy that it takes to make a post. But then, it seems like we're so busy but there really isn't much to tell. How can that be?

Well, it's official now. We have less than one year left of having 'kids.' Next year we'll have teenagers.

I shudder at the thought!

My babies turned twelve last month.

How can it be?

We surprised them for their birthday with dinner out and then to a hockey game. We told them that we were going to dinner at a place that Dax had seen in Austin and wanted to try. After dinner Addison asked if we could go watch a movie. I told her that we would go watch 'something.'

Since we wanted this to be a big deal because of their birthday, Dax and I both contacted several people about having their names on the jumbotron (without knowing the other was doing it.) I think that between the two of us we must have contacted everyone in the organization!

It worked out to our advantage though.

I had bought tickets at center ice only about 5 rows up this time since it was a special occasion. Two different people from the Stars showed up at our seats with gifts for the kids.

They were thrilled to get autographed pucks.

They also got other pucks, some championship banners from last season, and a blanket. It was great!

Wyatt and Dax even got to see their favorite players out on the ice.

And they did get their name on the jumbotron and announced during the game.

All in all it was a good birthday surprise for them.

Not to mention all of the other great gifts they got.

But, I still can't believe they're already 12. How can it be?
