I thought these jammies were so cute. Cheap at Walmart and they glow in the dark! Fun way to go to bed and it helped them stay there.

Soccer Mom?

So I don't know how I feel about the title of Soccer Mom, but we did sign Tyler up for soccer this year anyway. He really likes it and is having a great time. They had their first game on Saturday and they creamed the other team. We need to work on him being a little bit more aggressive, I'm thinking bribery. I'll let you know how that works out. I think I have discovered though that I am a yeller at games. Hmmmmm... I wonder where I get that from...Mom? It really is hard to control myself though and deep down I don't want to be this way. I had to keep reminding myself that he is only 5 and really has no idea what he is doing besides chasing a ball around. And by me yelling to get the ball and go faster and kick it, KICK IT!!!!! Was really just distracting him. This Saturday should be better, Jeff will be there to tell me to bring it down a notch. *sigh*
He is number 4. Seriously so cute. They play three on three with no goalie, it really is just get the ball and try to score a goal. A great way to start our Saturday.

Hook 'em

Football in Texas finally started a few weeks ago. We busted out the burnt orange to wear it proudly and are looking forward to a great season.
It is actually rather silly how the whole Texas world stops and revolves around football through the end of the year. Oh well, we have finally conformed and love getting caught up in the drama of it all. It goes something like this if they are winning"They are the best team ever! How could they ever lose! I love Colt McCoy! (or who ever your QB is) National championship here we come!" and if they lose just one game "I knew they would lose. They really aren't all that. That QB really needs to get his act together or they aren't going to get a good bowl game, why didn't he go to the NFL last year?" It cracks me up. We love 'em and we hate 'em. But we will always wear their colors. GOOD TIMES!!!
We are still working with Dylan to get the hook 'em sign down, maybe by the end of the season!

Dylan started his first week of Pre-School this past week. We was so ready to go he didn't even care that I was leaving him unlike many of the other kids in his class crying for mom. I think he was so use to seeing Tyler going that he knew the drill and happy it was his turn to stay. I held it together to. Him not caring that I was leaving him is what almost pushed me over but I managed to be okay that he didn't seem to need me and he is having a great time.

Stand Up

Over the last two weeks my baby has finally decided to put a little motion in his life. He is finally crawling on all fours like a maniac, and is a standing machine with the assistance of something to hold on to of course.
