Harlem Globetrotters...NOT!

I love basketball. My dad and I used to watch all the Bulls games together. The '90's were the best- two threepeats, and it doesn't get any better than Michael Jordan. I've always wanted to see the Harlem Globetrotters, and the opportunity presented itself in an odd way.

I needed to get new glasses and contacts, and Jaime recommended I go to America's Best to do one of their deals and get 2 pairs of glasses. So, I did that, and in the process, I got a pair with transition lenses. When I did that, I received a voucher for 2 free tickets to see the Harlem Globetrotters while I was on Christmas break. I called my mom and booked her to babysit so that Ryan and I could go to the 2 PM performance.

My mom came from work on Monday, and both kids really enjoyed having her at our house. I was very excited to go see the Globetrotters on Tuesday. Tuesday morning came around, and I got up. I felt like I had been beaten up. My head throbbed, my joints ached, I couldn't breathe out of my nose, and I felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest.

Needless to say, we did not go see the Harlem Globetrotters. Instead, Ryan and Grandma took care of the children, and I slept on the couch and was miserable. Oh well, maybe I'll get to see them one day.

Here are some pictures that we took of Grandma and the kids, plus, a few I took today, when Noah decided to have me build a large railway complete with a nativity and zoo (we re-enacted the Polar Express all day).


  1. Oh no...bummer that you were sick especially when you were so looking forward to your bball excursion. Are you feeling better now? Love your "Polar Express" setup. Caleb got a Geo Trax barn with train, combine and bales of hay....we've baled so many hay bales...our farmers don't have anything on us!!! Happy New Year!

  2. What a really cool geo trax...wish I could figure out how to do that...where are the caribou? Loved the visit and will come back in a heartbeat...I love my babies! Love, Grandma

  3. The geo-trax may be the best "mistake" purchase I ever made. I am sure glad he enjoys it so much. And sister is soooo cute.

  4. It will be great to watch The Harlem Globetrotters, i have bought tickets from looking forward to it.
