Not Losers

This is us looking entertaining ourselves at The Texans game while we watched them lose.

Except they won...after we were already home and asleep.

So Of Course They Got One

Maw Maw and Paw Paw couldn't have their precious babies wanting a blow-up and not having one, so I got a text from my dad on Sunday telling me he wanted to buy them a blow-up and go pick one out.

 This is what they picked.

And it lights up...

They Keep Begging for a Blow Up

I've decorated the outside for Halloween, but Kyle and Reed are super unimpressed because they are dying for a blow-up yard decoration.  They even told me they don't care what it is, they just want one.

So, here are my Halloween decorations that nobody likes because they aren't blow-ups.

Football Update

Remember back when I said we were just hoping to win 1 football game?
Well, we've won two.  So we made our goal.

We've got about 3 games left, and Reed's job as quarterback is for the passing plays.
He's the only one on the team that can pass it.

And Kyle has proven over and over that he's the only one on the team that can snap it.
Being center is a really big job since you loose a down if the ball hits the ground when you hike it.

Here are two highlights from our 2 wins.

The first is Reed running the whole length of the field for a touchdown. 
(except that is was called back for holding).  

And here is Reed passing.
Kyle is #5 and hiking the ball.

Just Like Last Year

I looked it up and my kids were in the pool for Columbus Day last year.

They aren't in the pool today because they are all off with friends, but they were having a water-balloon fight yesterday.  October is still definitely summer in Houston.

Singing with the Stangs

The middle school choirs were invited to sing The National Anthem with the high school choirs at the football game on Friday.  JR was thrilled to work with the high school kids, but furious that they "sounded awful" when 2 middle schools "that weren't even invited!" showed up.
(I thought they sounded just fine.)

I brought along 8 3rd grade boys to the football game.

JR rode the bus over with the choir so the "little" guys ate pizza at our house before hand.

Here's my one picture from the game. I don't have any pictures of JR because we aren't allowed to act like we know him.  When it was time to go we had to text him and then he met us in the parking lot because it would have been humiliating to walk out of the game with us. 

Here they are singing.  I have no idea where JR is and I never found him.  Jason spotted him at the end.

I Should Probably Check Upstairs More than Once a Day

I walked upstairs this morning to see Kyle had redone his fort.

Now this is a fort. 
(Or a huge mess, the terms are interchangeable.)

And no "keep out" signs, I guess JR just knows he's unwelcome.
