"Siegel\'s Roberson finishes 6th in state bowling finals"

Senior Moments of Bowling

Ok, I am warning you now that this is kinda long. And I added my pictures before I started to type and it did the ones I needed at the first part and it put them at the bottom. Oh well.
Let me start by saying that I am very much starting to feel the pain of my son being a senior and all these wonderful memories that we are having are starting me make me very emotional.
Matthew made the state Individual Bowling Tournament this year. He went in it being #5 in the whole state! Yep, #5.
It started out with 48 bowling on Thursday and then went to 24. He mad the top 24 and again was # 5 when they re-seeded the kids. He then bowled and then they took the top 6. He didn't do as good and we figured he would end up #9. We heck no.... he got the 6th and final spot. When they called his name I just about tackled him.
I was so proud. He did so good.
He then had to be back on Friday at 8:30am. So it was down to 6 bowlers to be the state champ. He did pretty good , but he ended up finishing 6th.
Here are a few pics.
I am also adding some in another post of some other things.
Needless to say, bowling is over and here we come BASEBALL!!!!!!
Oh and did I tell you that Matthew has also been in the paper 4 times this week and his is the Athlete of the week for our area. And he also got interviewed by a college coach for bowling.

Matt doing an interview for paper

Sitting and waiting to see if he made it to the final. This is where he was sitting when I got up and tackled him when we heard his name as the last spot to get in.

Another interview!

This is some of his closest friends that came to support him. He has some great friends. He had lots of people there. Even when his name was called there were several tears shed.

Here is Matt in action! Yay, he is awesome!

Class of 2009

Class of 2009
16th Bday, see ya Mom

Brothers. 2004

Yes it 2009 and what does that mean? That means my first baby graduates this year. Everyone has told me that after Christmas that it will fly by. So I guess I better grab a hold and hang on huh. It has gone by fast. I sit sometimes and wonder what it is gonna be like without Matthew in school right down the road?

I wonder what it is gonna be like to not have so much say so in his life. What will it be like to wonder what the heck he is doing? I am not looking forward to that. What is it gonna be like the first week he is gone. Waiting on him to call me. And most of all I wonder what it will be like for his little Brother Jaden? It is gonna be an adjustment for all of us.

Matthew does not know where he wants to go yet , but he has several things in mind. We are still waiting to see what this spring brings with Baseball. He is now released from his therapy twice a week and is throwing everyday. He says he feels good, so that makes me very HAPPY!

As we sit back and enjoy what the last few months of his senior year have to offer please keep us in your prayers. Pray that Matthew will continue to get better and better.

I am so thankful that he is such a good kid (even though we don't see eye to eye all the time), he makes good grades, he did good on his ACT, he is just a great young man.

He has kept a job for over a year and a half. First job and still has it.

Christmas and everything else!

Hello, My name is Daisy. I am happy to be to my new home with Matt and Jaden. Although I look like a little FOO FOO dog they still love me. I am half Maltese and half Bishon.

I am almost 4 months old and I have been a very good little girl. Jaden named me before he even knew he was getting me for Christmas. See Mommy told him a friend got a new little girl puppy and what would be a good name and he said "Daisy". I have a few cute sweaters and I sleep all night.

I am sure you will see more of me on this blog.

Ok,enough about me.... here is the rest of the family.

Ok, the holidays have kept me going like a crazy woman. Whew. Hope everyone had a good one. We did, and the kids got a bunch from Santa. Matt goes back to school on Monday and Jaden has one more week out.

Good news this week, I sold a house that closes Jan 20th. I am very thankful for that. Good way to start the new year.

The boys and I went out to eat New Years eve at Chili's and had a great time then came home and watched all the fun TV shows and the guy who did that jump in Las Vegas. WOW. Crazy.

Here are a few pictures I wanted to share. I will do more later.

I have been reading all the blogs out there , I may not post a comment because I have been so busy, but I will soon.

Matt and Jaden Christmas dinner with My family.

My little sweet Dawson checking out the Tree. Aunt's let the

kids do these things. He loved the tree.

Matt plays basketball for the Church league. He loves it, keeps him in shape too.

Matt and Jaden opening new drums for Rockband.

Boy, we have had fun with that. Should hear me sing on that thing... NOT!

Jaden Singing at his school program. It was really cute. They had a breakfast for the parents.

I did all the craft for the kids and it was pefect. All the parents thanked me.

This is Matt and his entire baseball team at the VA hospital. We go every year. Me and Jaden tag along to visit too. We take them things like socks, lotions and things like that. The patients love seeing the boys. Of course Jaden is always a hit with them too since he is small. I love it as well. It does my heart good to see those men who gave to this country happy to see these kids. Some of them have noone that visits. Jaden and I took up with one of the men 2 yrs ago and was hoping to see him this time, but he had been moved. We took him a special gift last year, but didnt get to see him this year. But we had a wonderful time. It is a great experience for them and I am glad that we can join them.

the kid loves music!!!

Christmas Eve after Santa left the gifts out about 2am. I bet

he (she) was tired.Jaden got a Titans football signed by the Team. I

got gooooood connections!



Hope everyone hade a great holiday and hope everyone has great 2009. I have so far.

Lots of love to everyone.!!!!
