Stars on Ice

Kickin' it in the suite!

The group with two time U.S. National champion and two time Olympic medalist, Evan Lysacek.

The 'Stars on Ice' tour came to Tulsa this past Sunday and through the generosity of the Tulsa Figure Skating Club, and some good friends, the kids got to take in all of the action from the privacy of a corporate box. The girls all had a blast and even got to meet the skaters afterwards. Jordan was near fainting when she got to meet Olympic Silver Medalist, Sasha Cohen!

The best part of being a kid....

The best part about being a kid is that all you need to play basketball in Madison Square Garden is a mostly deflated balloon left over from your birthday party, some laundry baskets and a couple of bar stools. I walked into the kitchen over the weekend to discover Will playing basketball with these exact accessories. It made me smile, thinking back to when I was a kid. Though he couldn't quite dunk, he was money from downtown!

Sooner State Games

Jordan and Peyton
Basking in the glow!

Jordan with some of her loot.

We spent the weekend in OKC for Sooner State 2009. Amie ran the volunteer program, even enlisting the help of the girls. Both of the girls skated great! Taylor won one gold and two bronze medals. Jordan won two silvers and a bronze. They love hotel living and made great use of the pool and take out food!

Monkeys number one and two.

Taylor and Jamie. Friends first, competitors second.

Rhian acted as a runner, helping to post event results.

William turns Four!

The Birthday Kids!
Good Morning!

Presents and cake, the breakfast of champions!

Our little buddy turned four years old the other day and we celebrated with Birthday cake for breakfast and presents. A couple of day later we had a joint party for him and his sister Jordan at Pump it Up. All of the kids had a blast and got quite a workout by the time it was over. I still can't quite believe that he is four already.

Jordan and her buddy Carly.

One of the inflatables at Pump it Up. This was Will's favorite, along with the obstacle course.

Jordan, always the ham.

Taylor makes it down the slide.

Will is ready to celebrate.

Jordan blows out her candle.

A little patty cake to celebrate!

Super Bowl Weekend!

Ready to Roll!

On Sunday we had the "Super Fans" ready to watch the Super Bowl. Amie fired up the offspring and everyone was decked out in black and gold. A special shout out to the Slane family for continuing to associate with us even after the show we put on! Amie's lifelong dedication to the Steelers, cemented during formative years when she got to meet Terry "Super Wanker" Bradshaw, paid off once again when they snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. Welcome to "Sixburgh" baby!
We were able to enlist the help of Martha Stewart in a place setting design.
Will crashed before the big play! Poor little guy!
