Season's End

My little guy's  flag football team the Rockets placed second in the flag football championship playoffs yesterday.

It was a heated game, but we were unable to beat the Ravens, who ended the season undefeated.

Final score was 12-14, so we gave them a pretty good run for their money.

Walker led the entire league of 104 players in number of pulls by 12, number of rushing attempts and came in second on overall points, only passed by a player in the 8-9 year old division. 

I screamed my head off yesterday, became "one of those" parents that gets upset with the officials and Mike followed Walker up and down the field wherever he was. He was too nervous to sit down. I stayed in my chair with my mom and dad and watched from the sidelines. My tummy was in knots the whole time. 

We are proud.


  1. So sweet! Thinking of Anderson getting older is bittersweet but I look forward to watching him play sports and be a part of a team.
    I bet that is a great feeling! Walker looks so happy and I bet he is so proud of the medals he received!

  2. Sooo cute - Great Job Walker :-)

  3. Woo hoo Walker!! Y'all are so blessed!!! :)

  4. aww, way to go Walker! I can't wait to go to sporting events for our littles, I am so going to be one of those moms screaming from the sidelines :-) that pic is so cute :)

  5. Way to go Walker!

    I have a feeling I will be the mom (when I have children) screaming from the sidelines, too!

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?

Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!
