Baby Camryn, a banquet and happy little Boone

My good friend Janet had her third baby girl on Friday. Sweet Camryn is just as adorable as her big sisters! Looks so much like them but might have darker hair.

We always love attending the Coaches Outreach banquet. 

Double ear infections don't have nothin' on this litte guy!!

MHS Banquet

We went to the MHS football banquet a few nights ago.  I really do always love celebrating our season with a banquet.  This is now the 9th banquet I have gone to with Dave. They didn't start out so well.  I remember our first when we were "just friends" as I thought, it lasted 4 1/2 hours and I was breaking out in hives from a reaction to an antibiotic. Banquets have been much better since then. They aren't quite as long, I haven't gotten hives since and it's fun celebrating our team, the boosters and the coaches. These are some extraordinary iPhone pics.      

Such a sad excuse for a picture, but proud Dave always has a way with words speaking about his boys.

Got to love those sweet kids that show their appreciation for the unsung heroes, their coaches.
 And those awesome parents that tell your husband how much he means to their family. 
We had a great season! We were quite the underdog going into this year but ended up 5-5 and one win away from the playoffs.  Very proud of how hard the coaches and players worked to get those five wins!  Lots of highlights from our season, but one of my favorites came after the season was over. There is a boy on our team who I know a lot about because one, he is great athlete, and two, he has not always made the best choices in behavior.  My husband and other coaches have poured into this kid through good and bad days, because that is what great coaches do. They love on the unlovable. It's easy to coach the well-behaved, hard-working, respectful kids, but the tough ones, that takes something more.  The point is...a few weeks ago this same kid called Coach Hall aside to tell him he had asked Jesus into his heart the night before. awesome.   I love that he wasn't too prideful or embarrassed, and that he knew Coach Hall would be so excited.  Just a memorable moment that we will not forget. What an impact a coach or teacher can make.

It was a great night celebrating the Lions!

Stuff lately...

Daddy and Papa worked through sickness, rain and cold to build us a new fence last week. It is looking awesome and I'll get some pics of the finished product when they finish up the last details. These two onlookers loved watching it all come together.  

Last weekend we went to Fort Worth to see our friends Kirk and Marissa and celebrate their twin's first birthday. We claim to be the reason for these sweet babies since Kirk and Marissa met at our wedding. ;) 

Marissa had an adorable Lady Bug party for Kanon and Clare.

Kanon loved it, Clare not so much.

I love Christmas presents that entertain for weeks after Christmas! Thanks Aunt Sissy and Junod crew!

Tink wants to get some Boone lovin' everyday.

So glad to have our healthy, happy baby back!

And...we have an army crawler on our hands! Uh oh!

They call this playing "parade" in Honey's car after school one day in the parking lot.

We miss our friends, the Shermans, who used to live just around the corner. We met them for Taco Tuesday this week.
