Holy Shnikies. I have bruises all over me. We had our first Fencing Tournament last night.

I did ok. Mark totally rocked it though and got 2nd place. I am so proud of him. On the down side...He lunged so hard on one of his advances that he shoved his toenail into the front of his shoe and it broke. He took his shoe off and it was completely black an blue. He will probably lose it. I guess that is the price for fame. I'm sorry I lost but I am overjoyed that I still have my big toenail. lol. I am going to give him Private lessons with one of the greatest fencers in our area, for valentines day. Romantic huh???? It will make him so happy. I did ok, but have a lot of work. sydney loves it too. We are tempted to enroll her in the kids classes. She sits and watches us and tries to do it. We bought her a little jedi sword that she uses. It is a blast. I will post pictures super soon....as soon as I can bug my Marky enough to download them from the camera. Love that boy. :)

I'm so glad you have found something so fun to do. I dated a guy in High School who was a fencer too. (However, he kept it a secret....not sure why?) Yes, you need to download photos of you guys!

Now I must think of something really fun to make and send you....

Who knew you were a fencer! Maybe I'll see you in the next olympics!

Ok, I hope he lost his toenail and not his toe.... cuz I couldn't tell for sure...

Love you guys!

I happened on your blog by chance. . . I linked to it from conclusively inconclusive. My friend from High School, Steph Ironside, follows that blog. When I saw the name Houser on the inconclusive blog I just had to check and see if it was any of the Housers that I grew up with. I was so shocked to see it was Mark! This is Abby Maile, or Abby Davis, as I was growing up. We went to church together in Sate College. You have a beautiful family, and I hope all is well. Feel free to look at our blog. I used to be at abbymaile.wordpress.com, and recently changed to sixmailechix.blogspot.com. Again, hope all is well.
