More Football

You are probably thinking... is this all you do.. go to football games?! The answer is yes! This is our life in the Fall.... football, football, and more football. I am learning to love this sport that takes so much of my husband's time. Hopefully there will be more exciting posts in the future with other things than guys ramming into each other chasing a ball. (Matt wouldn't appreciate the fact that I just referred to football as this) Because of all this crazy rain lately, the game was moved to Hoover's field...not a big crowd, but a win.
And Saturday we headed to Tuscaloosa for the game. It was a rainy, yucky mess again. We are blessed to have our seats under this overhang, so once we got into the stadium we were fine.. it was just the trek there that wasn't so great. See the bottom right picture... we have this feature on our camera where you can swap colors... so I decided to spice it up and change mom and dad's clothes to green. Who doesn't love to come to the game wearing red and leave wearing green?!

Catching Up

I know you are just on the edge of your seat dying to know what we've been up to these past 2 weeks... We have been extremely busy and I have just neglected the ole blogger ooh... so here's what's been going on. Last Friday night (9/11) we celebrated Grandma's birthday at the Cracker Barrel. Matt missed out on the fun because they had a game in Georgia. I didn't make the 9 hr trek there and opted to watch it on TV at sister's house. Good thing she pays for the expensive cable and she had the channel. We had a good time celebrating with Grandma and our great aunt, Gin. I think they had to kill the chicken in the kitchen, because our food was taking forever so mom and I decided to play with the lemons.
Then on Saturday as soon as Matt pulled back into town and literally he didn't even get to come home... we headed to the Jeremy Camp concert (along with Natalie Grant and Bebo Norman). This was a great concert!! It was such a blessing to have three hours of praise and worship and just give God the glory for everything! Matt was such a trooper... he knew how much I wanted to go to this and he had been riding on a bus for 9 hours, but just put on smile, changed in the car and was ready to go. He's a keeper!!

In between last weekend and this weekend it was filled with literally something every night.. and not a lot of fun somethings.. like class and meetings and yuck stuff! But anyways, Friday was the Hoover/Thompson game. The whole fam made it for the game and let me tell you... my parents sat down and literally 2 minutes later the rain came and it didn't stop the entire game. Luckily I know one of the coaches.. wink wink.. and we were able to sit in the box and stay dry. Don't you love that picture of Matt and I? Well, the field was so wet and was getting torn up so they wouldn't let anyone on the field after the game... So this is how I got to congratulate my hubby on a win and say hey--through the net.

And then Saturday --bright and early--it was off to the AL game. And another rainy day it was. There wasn't much picture taking going on because we were just trying to stay dry. Thanks to my great husband I got to wear my hounds tooth rain boots and they came in handy when I was scaling down a hill of mud and then into a large puddle below. Keri and Steven sat in the 2 seats 2 rows below so I didn't get any pics with them.

Labor Day Already?!

Here's a little rundown of the Labor Day weekend.... Started off Friday night with a game against the mighty Homewood Patriots. Sister came this week to join in the festivities. It was a fun game!
Saturday we were planning to go to the lake but we woke up to a beautiful day of raining. Instead my two boys were napping on the couch... with remote in hand. Saturday night mom and dad came over to watch the AL game. It was touch and go there for a bit, but thankfully they pulled out a win!

After Matt got home from practice today we headed over to Tannehill State Park. Now matt has never been here and I myself haven't been since maybe 4th grade. We were trying to think of something fun to do since it was nice out. You would know the day we go they are having some sort of union rally. I thought "rally"... I love pep rallies. But apparently this was not what it was. They did have a band and some food and we enjoyed that... but otherwise we were a little out of place without our bandannas on our heads and our leather jackets.

Matt already had his AL gear on so we could meet our sweet friends Jonathan and Rachel at Chick-fil-A for a free sandwich. Yeah!

And then, it's hair cut time. Matt's bangs are in desperate need of a trim. I have trying for a few days to talk him into letting me trim them. Why not save the $16 bucks and let me do it? He finally agreed but nearly peed in his pants while it was going on. And I did get a major case of the giggles as the scissors were about to snip away. Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend without the labor!
