Friday evening

Good evening faithful readers! :)

We just got home about an hour ago (it's 11:30pm) from our football scrimmage this evening.  Next week is our first game! Super excited for this season... our boys are looking really good this year!

The babes have been bathed and tucked into bed. And now I'm taking a moment to unwind and then heading that way myself!  We had a GREAT but long day today!

Our morning was spenting shopping for shoes for Colty...that is a whole other story for another blog post.  I'll tell you the story in the next post... basically his feet are fat and I can't find shoes that fit.  :)  More on that later though.

Then we came home for quick naps before some friends came over to play for the afternoon while their mom was away.  And after that it was off to the scrimmage...and all of that combined makes for a very busy back to back day.  I am SO happy to be sitting here ALL peace and quiet :) Thankyou Lord for creating the end of the day! :)


Here are a few pics of our evening...

Every time the crowd would clap and cheer Colt would join right in like he knew what was going on!

Our Coach :) I am so proud of him!

After every game the wives and kids head down to the field to see our husbands/dad's.  I love this part!!!

Take note of Colt's shoes above... I'll tell you about them tomorrow...


On the agenda for tomorrow is grocery shopping.  I've been doing the Pantry Challenge and have been trying to use up whatever I have in the pantry and freezer.  I've pretty much cleaned both out and it is TIME for food in this house!  On the menu for next week is Beef Stew (crockpot), Meatloaf with mashed potatoes, Roast with potatoes and carrots, French Dip and Home-Made Granola for breakfast.  I am in the mood for some good home cooking!  Mom...would you mind just coming down and preparing all of the above for me? It always tastes better when you make it :) :) :) 

I'll be sharing a few of the recipes next week!


Have a great weekend!

Philippians 3:14
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.


  1. I'm on my way!! I think we should add strawberry soup to the menu! love you all


  2. Strawberry SOUP???? MMMMM..... sounds delicious! Roast sounds good during the week of Sept. 13th.. heheheheh hahahaha.

    Emma's dress is very "college/sorority" like. I'm in love with it! I love Colty's big feet too. His shoes look comfy! Like I tell Macey and Emma, I'll dip Colty's toes in ranch and eat them :)

  3. I love going down on the field after the game too. My little boy has fat feet too. I am going to have to get him measured for shoes soon.

  4. How rewarding to get to see your husband hard at work!! I love being 10 minutes away from Jared's job site...every once in a while we load up and head over there and he takes us out on the golf cart to see how far along the new barns are coming and all that fun stuff. Jared LOVES looking at the equipment!
    I must say that growing up I absolutely LOVED running up to my daddy after a big win...and even more so after a hard loss. I can't WAIT to go see some football games this year!
