Raiderette Reunion and Fall Decorations

Happy 50th Anniversary, Raiderettes!!

This past week was L.D. Bell's Homecoming and the 50th Anniversary of the Raiderettes.
As tradition, the alumni Rettes got to perform at half time with the current team.
We had some long practices, but it was a fun experience dancing with Rettes of all ages.

Here is our performance video.

There were about 150 alumni that performed (see us in the back)

Matt got to experience his first high school football game from the stands. He always been on the sidelines. This was also a much bigger venue than he was used to for high school football.
He didn't even know what a drill team was.... so sad if you ask me. ;)

Go Blue Raiders!

They actually won!

Now to reminisce...

Here was the first time I put on my uniform.... almost 10 years ago (I feel so old!)

Here I am.. my first year as a Raiderette.

My senior year with Dorinda. I sure miss those days!

Here is how I found my kitty yesterday... my krazy kat.

Happy Fall, Y'all!

Here are my new friends...

Fall Decorations...

And you can't forget the candy corn and peeps!

Three days of soffit work has turned into two weeks with all the rain.
It's becoming a real drag especially with our dogs.
Hopefully the humidity and rain will clear off for a few days so they can paint.
Check back next week.. hopefully by then we will have our new soffit pics!

Happy Birthday, Derek!

This is what I woke up to the other morning... Maverick asleep on his bench and Maddie asleep on her bed right below him. It's like bunk beds.. such cute puppies.

On Friday night, we went to Derek and Beth's to hang out and eat.
Here is Isaac in the cabinet.. he went over, opened the door, and took a seat.

Saturday was opening night of the Stars game. We got our seats upgraded to platinum level, so it was a great way to start of the season (except for the loss). It was a very exciting game..
we were down by two, then tied, then overtime (which we had plenty of chances)
but we lost in a shoot out. GO STARS!!

There they are....

Sunday was Derek's Birthday. We went to Stephenville in the morning to visit my Memere and Paw Paw. After that, we came back to my parents for a party!

Here is Isaac reading with his Pepere who he LOVES.

Isaac helping his daddy open presents.

Andrew wanted to help too! He did a great job handing out the presents.
Happy 33rd Bday, Bubba!
His yummy birthday cheesecake!

Admiring the cake...

Blow your wish!

Happy Friday!

This is the view I had when I left work last night. Beautiful clouds! We even saw a rainbow!

Braggin on my "kids"... here's my "fat cat" although I like to call her "curvy" like her Mama

Sweet Maverick boy... HYPER Maverick boy... where did I get him from? Well, that's a dumb question.. I got him from the pound and I know why he was there.. but I still loooove him!

Pretty Maddie!

Here she is keeping watch of the yard. The other morning we had an armadillo in the back yard.
So far, we've had possums, armadillo, mice, lizards, lots and lots of frogs, snakes..
I'm scared to ask what's next... (skunk?? we pray not)

Now time to brag on the nephew... here is in the the toy bin at my parents house. He always wants "more, more" toys, so my mom just put him in the bucket and he was happy. =)

Pepere reading to his little buddy. Isaac is a Pepere's boy for sure!

And here is cute Kaitlin with her new baby.. she loves it!
She looks cute in the pink car seat we gave her.

Here is Owen riding the lion we gave him for his bday last month. So cute!
Check back next week for house pics.. new soffitt and NEW FRONT DOOR.. yay! So exciting.. except for the fact we are having to spend money, but we are getting top of the line for a GREAT price!
