Football, Fun, Family

I'm beginning to see a pattern in my life. Are you? Football and Family!! Could it get any better than this? Maybe you are getting bored with the same things in my life over and over again. I'm not. I'm blessed!!

I have began to make a list of different post subjects in order to add some variety!!! Maybe I'll do some this week.

On Friday night, Bryan and I made it to the first home football game where my older nieces and nephew go! I love high school football games!! Bryan said he would go with me IF we got to go to some basketball games later in the year. Of course I would...crazy question!! Remember his "thoughts" on football this year?? I tried to take the below picture not knowing he was making this face. I told him I would post it on the blog as punishment and as a representation of his "football thoughts"
In all fairness to Bryan, he has had to spend any extra time he has working on graduate work and preparing for a Sunday School lesson and trying to fit in work around the house. So his time is spent wisely. I think he is being very responsible. I just like to tease him about it every now and then.

The town is MAJOR football. In fact, the last Sooner to win the Heisman Trophy graduated from their high school! High school football spirit is so neat. I had so much fun watching the teenagers and wondered...Did I act like that?

Bryan got a hair cut on Saturday and I told him I should post a picture. I've seen several pictures of little ones' "first" hair cut. So why shouldn't I post a picture of his!!! (although it wasn't his first :- )
The angle is so weird! It makes Bryan look like Andre The Giant!!
After the hair cut, we met his mom and some friends of ours for lunch at Texas Roadhouse. The food and company were great. My friend from high school is the daughter of Bryan's mom's best friend. Tracie (my friend) had a baby in June. Isn't he a cutie pie!!
Sunday was a great day in church and a wonderful family day with our cousins! Hasn't the little man changed?!
I think I may be called "Aunt Julie". Bryan and I love this family! Whitney, Katie, and Jesse went to church with us and then came home with us. We had roast, potatoes, green beans. Your traditional Sunday dinner. I held and watched Jesse while Whitney took a little nap. It was my pleasure. Before they left, we "posed" Jesse on the couch!

I'm so blessed to be surrounded by babies everywhere I turn!!!

um, hello, that's my life as and family! I'm so glad the babies are there. I've been praying for you and how God is going to use you in motherhood. My devotional this morning was about how many times should I pray? One verse Jeremiah 32:37 says "Look, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too difficult for Me?" I can just see Him saying to me, Look dude, don't you know who I am? I can do anything you ask of Me, you just have to keep asking sometimes. haha!!

Jesse is absolutely adorable. I love it when babies are a couple of weeks old that way you can see their eyes and start noticing their personalities. Looks like you had a fun weekend! I just got back from the airport picking up my mom and grandma. I am so tired now...I don't drive much anymore, so when I do, I tend to be over anxious about it all. I am glad to be back in Celina now. Hope you have a good week. Talk with you soon!

You can't beat spending time with family -- and with these gas prices, and the shortage of gas, none of us can do much else!
Glad you had such a fun weekend!

Hi there,
I am new to your blog but wanted to let you know that I have enjoyed reading your posts and looking at pictures. Before moving to Alabama, high school football and family were our life too! It was so much fun. Now, we are tryingn to unpack and chase after our 8 month old twins! Enjoy every minute that you have with family! You can never get enough....

Megan said...

Looks like you had a great weekend. I love Sundays with good food and family! Glad you got to see Jesse! I think Aunt Julie sounds great!

valerie said...

I posted about football too.
We've been wanting to go watch some of our youth play and Friday night was the perfect night.

I'm glad you had a good weekend with your family. Jesse is adorable.

Oh, I would never get tired of family and football! I am loving all your fun pictures..

I acted just like that in highschool. We were crazy crazy fans..

Kristen said...

Oh my word he is PRECIOUS! It's amazing how much he's changing! So cute!

Leigh Ann said...

That tickled me that you took Bryan's picture getting his hair cut because it is so something I would do. He looks thrilled!

Jesse is adorable!

Laura said...

When I first saw the picture of the "referees," I thought, "OMG! The referees in OK where hats!!!" Then, I finished reading your blog. Sorry. Blonde moment. The pic of the girls sitting on the buckets is hilarious!!

Glad you had a great weekend!

Those babies are adorable!

We're hoping to attend a few local high school football games now that our boys are a little older!
