Hockey Season

It's hockey season again! Woo hoo!!

The kids have been playing for several weeks so far...

Andrew's team is in first place as of now.

Lily loves to dress like Olivia Newton John for her brother's games:

George and I are doing fantasy hockey.  It's my 1st time doing it, so we'll see how it goes. He gave me some guidance on who to choose for my team, but he helped build my confidence enough that I would suggest a player I wanted and he would say, "That's a GREAT pick!"  (Could be that he just wants to win and was telling me to pick someone who's terrible.haha)  Nah, he'd rather me win.

The other night we were talking about hockey and I had this revelation-- we no longer have a goalie on our team.  See, when we found out we were pregnant with Lily, we joked that we had a complete team:  George and I are the defense, Andrew and Reagan are the wings, Lily was the center, and our dog, Fred, was the goalie.  A few weeks ago, we had to put Fred to sleep.  It was a really sad time and seriously difficult to watch my husband be sad about his dog. :(

Daddy and I are the defense protecting our family, of course. Andrew and Reagan are the wings because they are one of each of us and Lily's the center because she's all of us. ♥
If you're not quite sure of a hockey formation, here's what it would look like:

Andrew              Lily               Reagan

George                       Steph


So, right now, we're sans goalie.

Penguins kick of their season this Thursday too!

It's a great day for hockey!


  1. I'm so sorry you had to put your sweet dog to sleep. That is so hard. :(
    I love your family hockey team. You are so cute!
    Lily looks adorable girl. Seeing her pics does not help my baby cravings.

  2. Hockey season ...woohoo! Lily is so adorable!!! I am going to watch my brother play this weekend again ASU's team...should be awesome!
    Sorry about your pup hope you guys are all doing okay!

  3. Kick off the season to the Red Wings.... LET'S GO PENS!!!!!

    She is so darn cute! My husband totally wants our boys to get into hockey - he is now playing in a 30 and over league and it is nice for him to get back into it!

  4. God is your goalie, Steph!

    Sad you had to say goodbye to Fred.

    Thanks for keeping up with my blog. I love being able to share our life (and stay tuned in with the lives of others)that way. The cake is super cute (and easy) - fruit by the foot (stripes), marshmallows cut in half and touched up a little with yellow icing.
    It would be nice if Trent and Andrew could know one another better.

    So glad that Lily is doing well. I'm sure you're noticing different things with her, no longer consumed with the unknowns that first-time parents endure.
    Take care, Steph!

  5. Finder's keepers has it right, and I like the idea of your wings :)

  6. Lily is such a doll!

    Love the hockey formation!
