Emma Lou and Paula went with us to this particular game.
Oh, looky. Ellie has gone and opened up that wound on her forehead.... AGAIN! Will that thing EVER heal?!
She bumps it into everything. The doc who sewed her up originally (New Year's Eve 2007) is also our neighbor. He thinks she will likely need plastic surgery on it, as it is pretty raised and the bone, itself, has experienced some changes. It is protuberant, so anytime she bumps into anything, it is prominent enough to take the blow.
Ok, back to the game. This is the kind of thing we grill at the game. We are no novices!!
This is Les. His son plays for the Warhawks! And that is Todd. He will never have a son who will play for the Warhawks! Soooooo, we live vicariously through Les!
Know why. Cause Todd has sweet girls.
Sweet, lovin girls who just wanna love him and give him sugar!
Oh, I think I showed these tees earlier, but they deserve a second look.
Hey there. It's Emma! ANd she's sportin that number 11! Hey Jake!
By the way, as God is my witness, as I type this, it is 4/3/2011 (adds up to 11) and it is 11:11 pm. Just sayin'! HEY JAKE!! WHatchu trying to tell me, boy?!
During the game, my youngest made some new friends. She, I do believe, is going to be my ball player.
Ellie has shown ZERO interest in a ball, whereas, Gabbi Girl can't resist playing with a ball.
Well, look who the cat dragged in! It's Mary Allison!
And can I tell you that I don't think there's ever been a sweeter baby. Especially not one who has shown her mom this much affection!
My Gabbi Girl L-O-V-E-S her mama!!
ANd her mama L-O-V-E-S that baby girl!
This is Ellie trying to move in on a big girl conversation.
And check out big girl's expression. She just don't know yet that Ellie is really 12 in a 3 year old's body! Give her a few minutes, she'll be runnin' that conversation! !
Well, hello there, Pammy.
So nice of you to bring snacks!
Gabbi found another friend. We learned that they may go to school together.
His mom and dad seemed nice enough! Ok, you have my blessing! Ha. I WILL be meeting the parents of the young men who will someday want to date my girls. They are so going to be OVER my prying! Oh well, they can raise their own girls however they like! And I'll do the same!
Bubbles seemed to be a big hit at the game. We pull out all the stops to entertain the itty bitties.
It is so much fun seeing Gabbi come into her own, developing her own cute little personality! She is quite independent at functions like this. You have to keep a close watch on her, because she has no interest in following the crowd, or doing whatever it is they are doing!
Hello there, Erin. Erin helps us with Shake for Jake every year.
And this is a big chunk of our crew.
Awww... PawPaw. I think this needs to be blown up!! This is a keeper.
Gabbi found cupcakes, and icing on the tips of her finger.
And she wore a cute little bracelet that I had made for the local docs/ nurses for St. Patrick's Day. I heard they wer ea hit.
Gabbi definitely liked hers! Ellie was too busy meeting the high school kids and conning them into letting her use their phones. ( I am not kidding)
Afterwards, the big kids, (and Gabbi!!), hit the field for a little running and playing!
I just never dreamed GG would be my ball player. But I am afraid so!
