Middle of Football season!

We are right in the middle of the boys' football season here!  Last night was so much fun.  Nathan's team got to scrimmage with a neighboring communities team at their high school field, under the lights with AstroTurf!  And, while they didn't win, they played by far their best game yet.  The high school band needed practice, and so we even got to have them play for halftime.  It was so. fun.  And I had these fabulous pictures of the evening and managed to delete them this morning.  Don't ask me is still too painful to talk about.  So let your imagination run wild and that is what the pictures looked like.  Here are some pics of my boys.   I am going to try to get some more action pics of them tomorrow and will, hopefully, manage to post them before I delete them.
Oh goodness...the handsomeness of this picture.  And they look so huge in their pads!  And trust me when I say you do not want them to hit you unless you are also wearing pads!

"Big John" and "Big J" is what he is known as on the football field.  He plays offensive line and has been playing a little on the defensive line this year as well.

"Big Nate" (notice a theme?) and "NateO" is what he is known as on the football field.  He plays center on offense and defensive line. 

Nate is number 57 this year.

This pretty much sums up the girls at football games...snack time!
John is number 76

A date...

I got a phone call yesterday afternoon from this handsome man....

inviting me on a date.  It was kind of a miracle...we actually had a couple of hours where we were both free.  When we have had time lately, we've been enjoying some local spots....partly because i don't want to spend time riding in the car and partly because we have some really yummy places locally.  Last night we hit a small town nearby and had some fabulous burritos and then chilled out at the local coffee shop.  It was such a great evening.  I have such a great man and it seems my kids agree....

A Sunday

Sundays can be crazy days at our house, but several years ago The Lord made the importance of sabbath and rest so clear to both Joe and I. So when we get home from a long (but good!) morning and early afternoon (our small group meets after right after church) with our church family, we hit the bed for a nap. I LOVE is one of my favorite hobbies and I don't get to enjoy that hobby near enough.  And then this is typically where you find us....

You can't tell, but that is football on the tv. (The Broncos are getting whipped up on, but if anyone can bring them back it would be Manning.)  I don't even get up to make supper.  On Sunday evenings we have the same thing for supper every week.  It is a special I like to call " get your owny".  I try to ignore any laundry or dishes and chill out.  Hoping your Sundays are filled with as much relaxing and resting as ours is! (It is certainly much easier to rest at our house when the Colts are playing as well as they did today!  ;) )
