Friday Favorites-Weekend Edition

We’re in FULL BLOWN decorate-for-Christmas mode at The Slaughter House!  EEK!  Why does it always get so out of control messy before it gets nice and cozy.  I’m dreading that but it’ll be so worth it.  Right?  Tell me it’ll be so worth it.  🙂

  I’m joining Narci and Andrea to to bring you Friday Favorites!  Today, I have a post full of favorites from our weekend to share.

First up-CONGRATULATIONS to @caelacakes.  You’re the winner of the CHRISTMAS CASH!  I messaged you this morning!

On Friday afternoon, the three big kids had a Fun Run at their school.  Bowen and the first graders were up first.  Please note this flag…Shay and I really showcased our craftiness with this one.  Don’t you think?  Let me tell you-there were some AMAZINGLY decorated flags.  

This kid ran his heart out!

Look who I found after the run…ASHBY!

I had a little one hour break and then it was time for 4th and 5th graders.  Please note Nixon’s TEETH!  UGH!  Apparently he had his mouth open as he ran through the color.  {4th and 5th graders got a Color Run.}

At the end of the run, they passed out color cups and let all the students toss them in the air.

Can you tell?

Tab’s Saturday game was local so Friday night he got to join us for the Friday Night Lights at our local football stadium.

It was chilly Friday night but it made for the perfect football-watching experience!

Saturday morning we were up early headed to the TCU/Baylor game in Ft. Worth.  We were on the field by 8:15 a.m.

 Game Day came EARLY!  Bowen stayed with Marla, who took him to his flag football game.

Since the game started at 11:00, the kiddos and I grabbed a yummy breakfast in our free time.  Please note, Ebby Lee only had a TCU shirt so she added a gold long sleeve to be more neutral.  ha!

Nixon is always down with the jokes!

The weather was absolutely perfect on Saturday!  This was the view from our seats.

Check out the cutie on the right.

My crew for the game.

Toward the end of the game, they walked us down to the sideline so we could meet up with the officials outside their locker room.  Little did we know there would be three overtimes.  So we were on the sidelines for a while.


I kept having to make this one scoot back.  #justalittlecloser  #onemorestep

 Another overtime, another picture of the guy with the “U”.

I found some goodies that would be perfect for either TCU fans or Baylor fans-all priced perfectly.  You can see them here…

We ended our weekend with the cowboys on tv, a fire on the patio, and the heaters turned way up.

    I've been following your blog since before Britt became a part of your family. Looking at these pictures…did Ebby Lee and Nixon both recently just grow a foot or so? They both look so grown up.
