Are You Ready For Some Football?!?!

It just wouldn't be fall without High School football, would it? Ever since we have lived in Belton we have had season tickets to the High School football games. No, we don't have kids that play on the team or in the band. In fact, back then we didn't even have kids at all! It's just "the thing" to do around here. Everybody goes to the Friday night football games - to support the team, community, and just because it's fun! Tonight was Landry's first football experience and it went really well. We were a bit unsure about even taking her because she's been going to bed between 6:30 and 7:00 lately, and the game didn't even start until 7:30! She did great, though! She took a nap from 6-7, so she was a bit recharged. She just observed and soaked it all in. She didn't cry at all, but she did nuzzle on my shoulder and suck her thumb around halftime. Of course, we couldn't leave before watching the band perform! I did take Landry home after halftime and Raymond and Bethany stayed for more of the game. Bethany didn't want to leave. She had a great time and was a great fan, cheering "Go tigers, run, run, run!!!" Raymond went and got her a drink near the beginning of the game and when she put it down, she put it in the drink holder on the back of the chair in front of her. She looked at Raymond and said, with excitement, "I found the perfect place to put my drink!"

Here are some photos to commemorate this event!







Oh, and just another funny thing Bethany said. On the way home from the game she told Raymond, "I push Mommy's buttons!" How true, how true. :)

"I push mommy's button" - Ha ha - I love it. Totally something my boys would say too (b/c they know they do). I love the football pics of your two sweeties - they are so precious. How fun that you all went out the game - and I think it's great you go all season. Paul and I loved watching Friday Night Lights last year so we totally get the concept of the whole town cheering on the high school football team. I guess it's like hockey here - just a lot colder to go take your kids to a game ;-)

Friday night football would be much more enjoyable for me if I had my hubby WITH me in the stands! I love the girls' matching outfits. What's the deal with "perfect?" Em's been using that word a lot lately herself.

So fun! I've been sorting thru baby clothes and recently came across Jenae's little Tiger wear. aawwww.
I'm slowly getting my blog going again...long story...but I'll have to post our football pictures soon. You will LAUGH! There seems to be a huge difference between 1A and 5A football in Texas!!!
