Investing in Hot Chocolate

Little Guy had his first Upward Basketball game this morning.    When we left the house the thermostat said 21 degrees.       When we walked into the gym the thermostat wasn't much different.      For whatever reason, the heat wasn't working!     Not only that, but the the fans kept turning on and blowing cold air through the gym.    The only people who were warm were the kids running up and down and court.     Oh my goodness it was so cold.      

Despite the icicles hanging off our fingers, the boys did a great job and we all  had fun cheering them on.      Little Guy scored points for his team and we were excited for him.    Basketball at this level is a lot of fun.     You know boys on both teams so you are cheering for everyone.

To say we were ready for hot chocolate and the roaring fire hubs built when we got home was an understatement.      We all grabbed blankets and cranked up the heat to try to get our bodies warmed up.

After our bodies were warmed, our hearts were chilled when we received news that Jesus decided it was time for our precious Uncle Currin to come home to heaven.     Hubs is lucky to come from a family of men of God who influenced him.    Uncle Currin is one of those men.     When we were struggling to get pregnant, Uncle C told us that God was going to give us a baby.       Oh he was so happy when we delivered news of our pregnancy and I will never forget his face when we brought Big Guy as a two week old to the family reunion and let Uncle C be the first to hold him.       What a happy day for heaven and such a sad day for our family.

Hope you are enjoying your family AND staying warm.

My goodness, that gym must have been cold! Glad you had a nice warm home to come home too. I'm so sorry for your loss, but it sounds like he was a wonderful man, who is glad to be home with his Lord. {{{hugs}}} to everyone in your family.

Sorry for your loss. I know I'm a little late.

Alyssa has played Upward since we moved here in 3rd grade. We loved the atmosphere and the rules. It was a great experience.
