Football mania!

 This little family of ours has ventured into a whole new stage....the football stage!  That's my big guy, #17, we got the memo about the black pants a little late :)
 This amazing, hilarious, little - big guy is my new favorite football player.  And let me tell you, he loves it!!  Stephen is so in the zone when it's time to practice, or play.  He's not the fastest on the team, or the biggest, but he gives his all.  I don't make it to the practices, but Alan says he's all in.  He listens to the coach, he tries hard, and he is having a blast.
I'm finding it funny, as a mom who was a former athlete and a very competitive person, that I have a hard time with these little 5yr olds have such and intense practice/game schedule and routine.  But Alan would disagree - and I'm gonna give him this.  I know nothing about football.  All I see is my little baby out there, all dressed up like a big boy, getting hit, pushed down, pulled by his mask and yelled at...... but I guess its a boy thing.  Stephen never complains, and is up ready to do it again the next day. 
I'm so not ready for this!

So I noticed that there are some very cute, loving, sweet faces that have been missing from my posts.  So Here they are :)
This family wouldn't be the family it is without everyone, and though these past weeks have been full of Stephen and Cecilia activities, I promise these two little ones have kept me on my toes....
 Especially this one!  Oh Jude the Dude, what will we ever do.  I have decided to build him a climbing wall in the new to find the budget :)  But the other day, Alan heard Cecilia scream for her life during nap time and he ran in - guess who had climbed over the side of his crib into hers???  You guessed it!  Oh, my little wild man!
 And this sweet girl is loving the extra attention while Stephen is away - but she misses him so much!!  She is slowly learning her new role, and testing all boundaries (like any good three year old would!)
So off I go, hopefully I will post again soon with some football pics of Mr. Stephen man!  God Bless!!
