A Blast From the Past...

I'm still working my way through super old pictures, and these ones didn't dare go unshared! They date way back to September, but Em's little buns sticking out of his jersey are just a little too much to keep hidden. This kid is serious about workin', which is great cause I have a whole list he can get started on as soon as he is capable.  

I'll even admit Winston looks fairly cute (and miserable) in these pictures... I'm officially the worst dog owner E-V-E-R, and quite possibly the worst wife when it comes to any conversation about our dog. There may or may not be a profanity before his name if no small children are in the room, but our kids (and Matt) sure do love him. Emmitt rolls around on the floor with his arms wrapped around Winston's neck on a daily basis.  He talks about him by saying, "My dog" in a very serious (and possessive) tone and they both love to tie something to his collar and drag him around the house, which he usually does with the same look you'll find plastered on his face in the following pics. He's completely docile until he hears something/someone coming to the front door in which case he decides to act like a thousand baby squirrels have just been drug in front of his face 2 inches too far for him to reach... and that's not even an exaggeration! 


Now you know why his name has two words somedays...

Anyway, I digress... he does make for a cute photo shoot, so I'll give him that!

The pout probably has to do with not being able to use the hose all by himself. How dare someone else attempt to get something done!

I'm sure Madelyn was probably done "helping" by about now.  The potential of getting wet/dirty probably became too much of a threat and she bowed out.  

Not this kid though... the fun was just beginning!

Alright, and for the grand finale...

I told ya. 

Too much cuteness. 


Maybe, but I'm okay with it. :)

Summer can't come fast enough...

Friday Night Lights...

These pictures are hardly the greatest (as they were all taken on my phone), but they do represent just a fragment of the excitement our kids had towards attending high school football games this year!!! Our oldest nephews are a freshman and junior this year (***gasp***tear***etc., etc.). I don't know how that happened, but it did. We had lots of fun getting bundled up on Friday nights and heading out under the lights.  Unfortunately, Cameron, who's a freshman, broke his arm the day after his first game (which we missed) so sadly he spent the season on the sidelines. :( Thankfully it's healed and there's always next year, Cam!

...and no, it wasn't from flying out of a bounce house.

Sorry, Matt.

I couldn't resist. 

The amount of Central gear in this house might be rivaling the amount of Eagle t-shirts left laying around; I know it might be hard to believe. The kids loved their personalized sweatshirts from Aunt Stacy and the boys; and I'll admit, they just might be the cutest little Panther fans around!

Emmitt became quite accustomed to spending time on the field after the game.  He honestly started to believe we were headed to the game JUST so he could play.  After the first game, he spent the rest of the evenings whining into our ears (usually beginning in the 2nd quarter), "Mooooom, I wannna pway foootball!" It was cute at first, but got super annoying by about, oh say, the fourth quarter! 

I can hardly believe how alike these two look! Love it!!

Some seriously handsome boys!!! 

These kiddos sure love their big cousins, and football, among other sports, has become an ultimate passion of Emmitt's. Throwing a spiral and punting a football come remarkably easy for this two year old and Madelyn is proud to boast entire Panther cheers...from head to toe! **sigh**

It was a sad day when football season came to an end, but we're already looking forward to next year!!!
Or, I guess that would be THIS year!
