Final Football Game

This weekend was the final football game of the season. MU took on #8 ranked ODU. There were some positive plays, but in the end ODU won 40-13. Not the best way to end the season on the field, but after the game it was uplifting to hear all the players encouraging one another and paying tribute to the seniors.
Does she look ornery?

but oh so cute!
It was a cloudy day, but considering it is mid-November the weather was quite warm. We sat outside and let the kids run relatively free. Nora colored most of the time. Sawyer ran his cars along the bleachers, jumped around, cheered for the team and of course made bead bracelets (@ one point I found it ironic that all the son's of the coaches were making bracelets during a football game :)

During the game Sawyer really wanted to say "hi" to Daddy, which really isn't possible during the game so I suggested after the game he could give him a big hug. So that is exactly what he did. As Sawyer diligently watched the clock reach 0:00 he ran to the field and jumped into Daddy's arms for a big hug. It was too sweet and I'm sure it helped lift Kyle's spirit.

smothering Daddy with love

And following every home game my children act like they own the field as they run around like crazy...mind you this is the hallowed Hall of Fame field that my children treat as their own personal play ground

Another season in the books, now on to recruiting...

And an FYI: I'm going to take a little blogging break. With the holidays coming up and my Etsy shop blowing up (in a good way :) I haven't had much time for blogging. Plus we'll see all the grandparents at Thanksgiving time, so they won't have to wait too long to see the kids faces in person :) So, I'll be back after Thanksgiving to share all the fun/craziness of the holiday.

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!
