2012 Football Season - Week 3

For the first time since Robbie & I met, Auburn's 2 first games of the season were away games. So this past weekend (week 3 of football season) was actually the first game I've blogged about. Now my naming convention for the blog memory book that I'll always talk about, but never print is all messed up. Oh well, I did enjoy the break, but the fall is so much fun, you can't help but look forward to it. I love football games (just not Auburn), I love the tailgates, our friends, watching our kids play. Here's to the 2012 football season! (3 weeks in)

 The iPod was the entertainment for the first part of the tailgate
Thanks for not even looking up Jake

Jake explaining to Robbie how to tackle

Jake actually did really well at the game. Considering it was right in the middle of his nap time and 200 degrees outside. We stayed until halftime. He could have made it longer, but Robbie was worried he'd melt down in the middle of a quarter, so he wanted to head back to the RV during halftime, so we could watch the rest of the game from there.

Then running

Too tired to walk anymore
Because I LOVE to look back at our pictures through the years....

Happy Birthday Marrell!

Last Saturday, my sweet beautiful niece Marrell turned 4 with a Pink-a-licious Birthday Party. There is a 3-month age difference between Jake & Marrell. Since Jake doesn't have any siblings, she is the closest thing to a sister he has. And they completely act like brother & sister. Marrell is spunky and a cute little hot mess. We love her to pieces and love hers & Jake's sweet relationship (when they are not fighting). Jake calls Marrell Mo-Mo and was excited to help Mo-Mo celebrate her birthday! (Actually, he had just woken up from a nap & was somewhat in a horrible mood, as shown in the pictures below. The bounce house perked him up though!)

My sister-in-law did such an awesome job on the party!

Ready to blow out her candles

Great face Jake

This one is even better
