PURE LOVE?


OK, so let me explain! Basketball officially started this week at Alyssa's school. She has "tryouts" in the morning (I say it like this because she has already made the team but has to be there for the tryout anyway) and conditioning after school. She came home on Monday SOOOOOOO sore! I felt really bad for her! Her coach told her to take an ice bath. She had to fill up the tub with cold water and add all the ice we had in the freezer. She was told to dress in a bathing suit and wear a hoodie. That would help keep her warm.....at least a little warm. She was to sit in there for as long as possible, an hour if she could stand it. She decided to make hot cocoa and put a movie in the portable to help pass the time. Next thing I know, Ashlee and Brandon decided that they needed to support Alyssa in this therapy treatment and ended up in the bathroom with their own cups of hot cocoa. Now that is TRUE love! (smile, smile)
Aside from the obvious, there are a few interesting things about this photo. Notice Brandon's beanie? This is his new thing. He wears the beanie everywhere but church and it is on backwards too! Also notice the cell phone??? Alyssa can't even take a bath without her cell. The other day she was in the shower and I heard her talking. I snuck in to tease her about talking to herself and guess what....she WASN'T talking to herself. She was leaning out the shower curtain talking on her phone. What is up with that?

They probably don't think anything of it...especially since Mom and Dad take a bath together, right? haha So excited that I saw the link to your blog ;)

This is so cute! I couldn't help but just laugh so much and share it with Russell. Ya the phone thing, they are so attached to them, hate it! Kels & Ash do the same thing~ I want to take the cell's and hide them under my cough cushions and make them hysterically search for them, it would give me such a laugh!!! Glad the siblings could get in on the whole ice bath thing, gosh!!

How do you suppose we ever survived without cell phones and portable DVD players?
It's so cute to see them all huddled in the bathroom together. Most teenagers would yell at their younger siblings to get out. You have nice kids. :)

What great supporters! I just love those kids! It's because they are like you! Caring and supportive! :)

EEEEEH, and ice bath. That sounds 100% not fun at all. So what, Ty didn't want to join the fun? And that is a cool hat. Although, Brandon doesn't need anything more "coolness." I understand the cell phone, I can't live w/o it either. I don't know if I have ever talked while in the shower though. Must have been an emergency call, right?!

Looks like Brandon wants to be like his big bro Tyler with the hat thing. Did Alyssa get my surprise in the mail????
