Rollin' with the Roby's

A couple of weeks ago marked Ty's first adventures of basketball...this is my jam...and now that we are almost 2 weeks in...I, once again, have newfound respect for my they watched me play basketball since I was ty's age...whew(surely it wasn't as brutal...haha) ...for someone who was super competitive in basketball...this is tough to! But, they are doing good. haven't won yet..but, they know the rules and abide by them (can't say that for every team). 
Ty is loving it. He is hustling after balls, sprints back on defense and has this new found spunk....we have never seen that from our calm child. This may just be his sport? ha! who knows. 
With 15 kids on the team...woa...the coaches are doing a great job getting everyone equal playing time...not an easy job. 
Travis is coaching and doing a great job...the kids always take to him well..along with a friend's dad...and together they are teaching the kids the basic fundamentals...which is definitely not the easiest with 5 and 6 year olds. ha! 
They play every tuesday and thursdays at 6 and practice saturdays at 8am....way to early! ha...but, that's the time the Y gives our, that's what we do! That's always just a  daddy-ty time.haha! 

on tuesdays we go directly from hanna's dance to ty's basketball game. (so,sonic or a pbj is what's for dinner..ha).. 
This past tuesday was parents day..since typically, we just drop kid off and continue on our way...(me, ty and claire usually run errands during that time)...but, we got to stay and watch this time to see what they have been learning as they gear up for their recital. (there is no way of viewing the dancers from the waiting it was a full surprise.)...
we loved getting to watch her as hanna truly loves to dance...and then to find out her recital costume is  a ball of pink sequined fluff....she was in (her favorite thing). 
Seeing tiny dancers is quite possibly the cutest thing to see...they are all so precious and adorable and were excited to show their mommies their skills! ha! 

hate to leave claire out of the, she is still going strong in gymnastics..but since I do it with her pics are limited. 
this is the most recent pic I have of my little claire bear...
can't seem to kick her sinus, it's around the clock breathing treatments. but, doesn't slow her down!

Oh! we did go see Wild Kratts Live this past weekend....casey, b&S came in we, along with mom-mom, went to see chris and martin. 
we were a little saddened (I think with most of the audience) that there weren't live animals...but, it was a cute show that had poor production. ha!
but, the kids had fun! 

well, that post became more than just the intended basketball post..but, when i have to cram it all in. ha!
Love our busy schedules...makes saturday's and lazy sunday's more appreciated. !ha!

Roby Christmas...

From the end of December through the new year we were at Gamy and Granddaddy's celebrating christmas and family. 

When we got there wednesday...the kids waited so patiently for uncle brian to get there after work..but just couldn't stand it any longer..haha! so, they busted into their presents. 
and in 5 seconds they were done! haha! they were all pros. 
scooters for ty and hanna...and a plasma car for claire..but the baby belle was a hit! any doll claire just loves! Ty and hanna..along with addison's scooter from santa..cruised around the block. but, it was pretty cold and they didn't last too long! 
hanna also got a giant white board...that was a big hit for them all...and still continues to be at our house. perfect for playing teacher, homework and drawing football fields. ha!

loved their blankets from aunt ash. 

ready for a scooter ride...

They broke into addison's gift of dressup clothes...they had so much fun! beautiful princesses.

For new years eve...we had plans of going to friends house...but Trav was feeling pretty terrible (come to find out he had a sinus infection) so...we decided to stay and just lounge and watch football. 
hanna crashed about 5ish...and claire went down about, it was just Ty and, they played ty's ninja turtle game from aunt much fun and got some energy out! 
hanna, of course, woke up when ty and addison were going to bed...
but, after eating and jammies...she was back to bed..with the rest of us..before midnight! haha!

Happy NEW YEAR!! 2016!!!!!!

Christmas day we just lounged and played..until that night when we had the annual Roby/DEvine christmas....everyone was there and it was so much fun! 
Ty is always in heaven b/c he has 4 boys to play with! haha! 

Saturday, before we had to head home we celebrated our little Elly's first birthday! what a fast year! 
we had lunch, cupcakes and played pie in the face! Which, ironically, my clean child, Ty...LOVED! haha! it was definitely a hit! 

after celebrating we headed back to midland! (well actually the lake to get travis' truck)..and for him to go hunting sunday! (which he got a doe...we needed meat). 

we had a wonderful time and this was pretty immediately after we left....3 sleeping roby's...always makes for a good trip! haha! means a fun trip.and holiday break!

It's now Jan 11th and we are finally getting our house back in order. 

One of the gifts I received was a professional, she came twice last week..and really helped get areas cleaned out and organized...while I was able to put away the christmas decor and unload some was a very productive week.
and then inspired me to keep going, while travis took the kids to a bday party, I organized our medicines, linen closets and my closet. 

Friday, I finally took the kids to the dr...Ty and Claire both have sinus infections...I was hoping to get an antibiotic since they haven't been able to kick their sickness with OTC, that worked out well! haha! 
So, I had our dr. refill all the kids meds too...breathing treatment and allergy meds for all 3....along with, we should be refilled for awhile....

and sunday after church trav worked on the garage....aahhhh!!! life, to me, is so much better when you feel clean and organized. 

Tuesday...our cleaning lady comes and I get my car I am excited for those two things...after that I will feel like we will be good to go for awhile! ha!

I wouldn't call this a new years resolution...I was just tired of living in clutter, not having time to fix that problem, and ready to get back to normal. 
and i feel I am on track 1 Two thumbs up!
