"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2016"

Jaden: He had a great first football game of the season! The Chiefs won on a last minute throw from Tristan to Drew for the touchdown, but this one here also scored a touchdown on the very first drive of the game with a well executed reverse play that not only picked up the big first down we needed, but the points as well. He had some good catches, some good stops on defense and then even scored the two-point conversion at the end of the game, too. (Though they didn't give him the points because they penalized him for flag guarding). ;) It didn't stop us from winning though, and the Chiefs looked better than they've ever looked in practice. We all had a lot of fun, too!

Brandon: He was a peach during our full day of football and festivities on Saturday and then on a very quiet Sunday, spent about eight hours straight building with Lego's! I thought at one point that I should make him stop and come up for air, but he was so happy and content, and it was our last "relaxing" day for a while, so I just let him keep at it! He started right after church and stopped only for supper, homework and bed. :)
