Well it is 10:30pm here in our house. It is raining outside and the girls have been asleep for almost 2 hours. I'm finally sitting down to write my post I promised. This past week has gone by in a blink of an eye. Last weekend there wasn't much to report. It was a pretty normal weekend for us. We went to the football game and had a good time. The Saders pulled out the 56-0 victory. As usual Wilke's and Karner came over for a couple of beers. After the game we were waiting on a score of another game before we would know what the playoffs would be for us, so after some calling and tracking people down, we got the score and were able to get some playoff stuff figured out. Saturday was a normal errand running day. I got grocery shopping done in record time (that's what happens when you don't have any kids with you). We even managed to drag Christian out of bed for some lunch with us. Of course, he has just gotten up, so he ate breakfast. Phill, Steve, and Chad went to a poker night with Phill's brother. They had a good time, but only Phill's brother Paul, went home a winner. While the guys were gone, Shelly and Christian came over and we played Blockus. It was a really fun game. Sunday was the same old same old. I did go to a jewelry party, but didn't buy anything.
This week we have been getting ready for our company. I had MOPS on Monday and the rest of the week was pretty quiet until we headed to San Antonio for the football game. They ended up only having a half day of school on Friday because of the game, so that was nice. We left by 1 and got to Greg and Jamie's by a little after 4. We got to eat dinner with Greg, Jamie, Naomi, and Jordan who came down from Austin. It was a quick visit with the Truwe's since we were on our way to the game and Greg had a softball game also. The game was a lot of fun. Maddie of course had a blast because Isaac was there too. Both girls showed their Sader support along with their love of the Wilke boys (see pics above). Emma even managed to fall asleep for the whole 3rd quarter and about 1/2 of the 4th quarter. It was a very exciting game. The Saders ended up pulling out the win by 10. With 5 minutes left we were down by 2 and I thought we were done, so did Christa, but they pulled it off and got a big win. Maddie took a nice big goose-egg on her head home. She sort of bounced off Chad's foot and onto the cement. It has gone down a lot already, but I'm pretty sure that she will have a nice bruise.
Today (Saturday) Chad had to help with the senior float in the Tomball Holiday Parade. I got my normal grocery shopping done and the girls and Chad got a nap in. Tomorrow the senior baseball players are coming over for Chad to meet with them. Then rah-rah and bumpa will be here on Monday. They are scheduled for 9:30pm, but might get on an earlier flight. We will see. Maddie knows that she has two days until "rah-rah Maddie's house". That is what she goes around saying. Chad has school Monday and Tuesday and then the rest of the week off. Football will be playing either Friday or Saturday. They are actually playing the team that they had their only lost to in District.
I'm sure we will have some more pictures from this week, so when we get some more I'll make sure to put them up. I am already working on the girls t-shirts for this week's football game. After this week, I'm sure the next few weeks will fly by and Christmas will be here before I know it. Good thing I am pretty much done with my shopping.
Happy Thanksgiving if I don't post before Thursday!!
