Super Saturday - no not elections

WOW! What a day we had Saturday.....It started at 6:30 am (can you believe what wonderfully dedicated parents we are - as well as all the other parents on the team?) to get Josh ready for his 8:00 am football game. He had a great time and got quite a bit of play time. He is not very aggressive - unless his brother is really irritating him - so TACKLE football has been a stretch for him this year. BUT yesterday he initiated a tackle by wrapping up an opposing player and one of his team-mates came in a finished it off by knocking the guy over! YIPEEEE! Then in the next play he almost made an interception. He had the ball in his hands and then it slipped out - but boy was he excited! He wore his jersey ALL day!
After the game we went to get doughnuts and head to Jacob's FLAG football game. He had a great game with 3 or 4 touchdowns and pulled many flags. He sure has some speedy legs!

For lunch we were off to McDonald's to celebrate the football success of our offspring! Don't worry - we usually don't eat doughnuts and MickeyDs very often - especially in the same day!

When we got home Ken was off to chop wood and load it in the truck to take to his parents house today. I crashed in bed and took a nap since we were up till 11:30 pm on Friday night and I had to be up at 5:30 am today for work. The boys played Legos and watched a bit of Greenacres I think. Oh and of course the played with their new furry, little friends!

Then at 4:30 we were off to a Pumpkin Carving Party at Kendall's house. The boys did all the work themselves and they are very proud of their pumpkins. We didn't even have to have any band-aids or stiches after using knives!
