Great Game Last Night.

The annual Florida State/University of Florida game was last night.  This is always a tense game. BIG rivalry. 

We are Florida State Fans.  And last night we were happy.  I think the UF quarterback thought he was a Seminole.  He kept throwing it to our guys.  :-)

In the end, the score was 21-7. 

We were happy!

Go Noles!

So Proud of the HS Marching Band!

Last night was the final performance for the band.  It was State Competition.  The band arrived at the field early and performed in the semi-finals at 10:48 AM.  Bill & I went. I'm so glad we were able to go.  There were 15 bands in their division. That's a lot. Only 5 makes it to Finals.  Well, our band made it to finals.  We were THRILLED! 

The end result, they placed 5th in their division.  That's a big accomplishment. That means they beat 10 other bands.  It was a long day, but ended on a high note. 

Friday night the band hosted a Family Night so they could perform the show 1 more time before States.  So we all went.  The kids have never seen the show.  They loved it. Even Ethan was calm and watched.  Abby said she wants to do that when she's big like Tiff. 

I'm so proud of Tiff. She has put in a lot of hours and hard work this year.  She's had fun and made new friends.  But I know she's exhausted and ready for the break.  Marching Band starts back up in the summer. Her final year. I can't believe she's already been in marching band for 3 years. 

Enjoy the pics from Friday Night.

Finally! Ethan smiled for the camera

Poor guy. Being the only boy in the house has it's disadvantages.  One being that there is a lot of Pink.  Yes, we found this Pink Santa hat in our Christmas stuff and yes, I put it on him. Bill was not thrilled about it.  :-)  I'm surprised Ethan kept it on. But he called it "Goofy's Hat". :-)

Ethan never smiles for the camera.  He usually stares off into space. Well tonight Bill got him laughing. here are a few that are my favorite.  I just love his smile!

2nd Grade Feast

Today, Abby's class had a Thanksgiving Feast. Parents brought in food for the kids to eat for lunch. There was a lot of yummy food.  The kids were well behaved and waited until everyone was served (yes, the parents served the kids LOL) before they ate.  I'm so glad Bill & I were able to attend.  Abby was happy too.  Enjoy the pictures!

Thanksgiving has begun

Today, Bill & I went to the girls school to watch Jadyn perform in her class play.  We're so grateful to our friend Billie who watched Ethan so we could watch the play. 

Jadyn was embarrassed.  She did not want to wear her costume. And she was the only one who had to hold a "baby" and she did not like it.  But she did great.  I know she had fun and I know she was happy that we were able to go.  Bill & I were happy that we were able to go too.

Here are some pics from the play.  Friday we are going to Abby's class Thanksgiving Feast.  We're looking forward to that.

Busch Gardens

It's been a while since we've been to Busch Gardens.  We have the annual pass and like to take advantage of going.  Well yesterday the weather was beautiful so after church we went.  We were happy to see that the crowds were not too bad.

Bill & Tiff went on a roller coaster first. We tried to get the girls to go too but they were too scared. So I took the 3 little's to rides that were more their size.  They had a blast.  A & J love that they are tall enough to go with each other, and not with me.  They were even allowed to take Ethan on a few rides without me.  The smiles on their faces were priceless. 

A few of the rides I did have to take Ethan on.  So the girls went together and I went with Ethan.  It was fun. Thankfully he's still to small for the little roller coaster. LOL Even though the girls said "it's boring. We did not even scream".  :-)

The girls LOVE the Scorpion roller coaster.  So while they did that with Bill & Tiff, Ethan & I went on the rides he loves.  He spotted the choo-choo train and ran.  He was getting into the car and a girl said "I want to ride by myself" and then hopped in with Ethan.  Ha ha!

We did a few more rides and then we were tired.  It was a fun afternoon.  I'm so glad we were able to go. I'm so glad everyone had fun. I'm so glad the crowds were light.
