Permian VS Mansfield game

Finally, some actual photos from a MOJO game! Cherise and the boys went to Brownwood to watch Permian take on Mansfield in the first round of the playoffs.

Michael Allman and Bryson at the game. Michael is coach Allman's son, he and Bryson are the same age.

The MOJO fans were at the game in full force!

MOJO games are fun!

Going to watch Permian play is fun beyond just watching MOJO play football!

Brylie and Cason were glad to see each other!

Cason loves his uncle "Dodo" or "stinky feet" as he's also affectionately known.

Family, Fun Times and Football

These past couple of weeks have been filled with fun times. The Friday before Thanksgiving, the boys and I drove to Brownwood for Permian's first play-off game. Wade had to work so we went with Susan Allman and her three kids. Susan's husband Darren is the head football coach at Permian. We were very proud of ourselves for driving by ourselves with all of the kids in tow. The boys and I met up with Matt, Darla and kids the next morning. We were playing against Mansfield High, which is the school district that Matt and Darla live in.
Darla and I had a HUGE surprise. While we were waiting in line to eat at Underwoods Cafeteria, my boys took off running towards this guy in the parking lot. It took me by surprise, since this is unusual for my boys. It was Wade and Darla's brother Darran, who just got back from a 14 month tour in Iraq! He and his wife, Tania, and their two girls, Reagan and Sfrona came to go to the game with us. Matt knew he was coming to surprise us and had secretly purchased tickets for us all to sit together on the MANSFIELD side at the game. Yes, I sat on the opposing side. It was so worth it to all be together as a family. I felt so sorry for Wade, who was stuck at work in Odessa. I cried for him.
I'm sure you are all wondering where all of the wonderful pictures are of this fun- filled family adventure. Well, I assure you they are tucked safely inside my camera. Wade has been trying for 2 days to download all of our pictures without success. Our computer is old and is having a hard time right now. So, rest assured, soon (I hope) I will post some wonderful pictures of all of these fun events. I even have pictures of the trophy presentation after the game. Since we were with the Allman's, the boys and I got to be down on the field. The boys were very excited!(and so wasI!) Did I mention that we won that game 60-21.
Stayed tuned for pictures...That seems to be a recurring theme with this blog...

Cason our little Power Ranger!

Ok, I finally got the Halloween pictures put on, so enjoy! Cason has become obsessed with the Power Rangers. He is always battling invisible enemies, & providing his own sound effects. (Darla, does that sound like anyone you know?)

Cason, aka the Red Ranger, Powering up! (or is he morphing? I can't ever tell.)

Red Ranger with his Power staff. Cason loves his costume, especially the fake muscles!

Cason at the Kooky Karnival. This kid has some energy! All he did was jump on the various jumpers for 2 hours straight.

Cason and his friends from school, giving us their best Power Ranger pose!

Bryson as Elvis

Bryson, our huge Elvis fan, wanted to be Elvis again! He had decided he wanted to be Elvis for Halloween before we got home from our trip to Graceland.

Here he's testing out the costume while performing a whole Elvis concert! ( I tried to get it on video, but he quits as soon as the camara comes out.)

Elvis is now leaving the building! These were taken at St.Johns Kooky Karnival.

Bryson with two of his best friends, Morgan & Madison. He calls them, "his girls."

Elvis and the pirate twins. (almost sounds like one of his movies!)

Bryson's Class Project

Here are pictures of our Family project for Bryson's class.

The Procter's interpretation of what a Sioux Indian village looked like.

We each decorated a teepee with Indian symbols. (Cason was a natural, all his art resembles primitive cave drawings.)

We got 'er done, and survived our first Family project!
