~thursday & friday nights

Thursday nights our football team
 (The Warriors - the white jerseys)
 are treated to a
home cooked sit down meal
before the game on Friday.

Last night we took our turn in helping
 prepare the meal. We prepared enough for 70+
  The menu consisted of soups, chili, and gumbo.
Guess who cooked the gumbo?
I posted the recipe last October.
 Click here if you would like the recipe.

It was a hit!!!

That's our boy!
His mama thinks he goes up against
the ones, way to big for him.

The boys are makings great memories
on Thursday & Friday nights.
Not only memories being made 
but, the guys are hearing
 important principles on Thursday nights.
They are finding they have some great role models
whom they can come to anytime &
someone who cares about them....

Last night was special,
 not only for getting to help
plan & prepare the meal,
 but Nathan was able to share with them.

He asked the boys to help him with the
 object of the game
and then he related those things
to the game of life.

Choosing the right team
Giving your all

Friday nights spent in the stands!

Cheering them on to victory.
 The team's fans are die-hard supporters.
Home or Away
We are 3-0 in our division.

Oh how awesome...isn't it fun? I haven't ever had a football five have been baseball and basketball. Sports sure takes our little boys and makes them men!

Today we all gather around the TV to watch UT/OU...again a family memory time. Besides Lea at Letters to Emily has thrown me a I am hoping UT wins or I have to wear that ugly old hog hat.

Love you...praying for you...enjoy, enjoy, you have made me hungry.
