Honey and Papa visit, the banquet and randoms...

We were all so excited for Honey and Papa to come visit! They delivered our Christmas gifts that wouldn't fit on the airplane, and they were going to keep the kids while we went to the Permian Football Banquet. 

Honey treated the ladies to manis and pedis.

The hand and the chair are both a little creepy.

Honey brought the stuff to make gingerbread cookies.
These next few are out of order. I am pretty sure I didn't do this in kindergarten. Thankful for a wonderful teacher!
The lame-o play area at the mall.
Watching Frozen on the computer. Boone didn't really watch, just bugged the bigs.
Dickey's bbq and some dessert.

Daddy and Papa had to put the goal back together which was quite a chore.

Saturday night we headed off to the football banquet, which is quite the event for the Panthers!!
The Panther Booster Club does it up FAN-CY!! Oh my! The seniors wear tuxes, the girls were full on prom dresses, they spend bookoos and it is THE EVENT of the year for PHS! Who knew?!! 

Dallas Cowboy, Roy Williams, who also was a Permain Panther, was the speaker. This was my sneaky pic from the table. We sat on the stage under some big lights, so I had to be discreet. 
Each varsity player is announced along with their date. They walked down this long carpet while their stats are read. It really was pretty cool and SUCH a big deal. It's one of the many things that has never changed at Permian. Tradition runs deep here!

This is where the varsity players were announced. Dave had to help the dates walk down the stairs and not trip on their dresses. I giggled each time.

How about a panther ice sculpture?!
It really was a fun night and obviously a big night for the Panthers. Thankful that Honey and Papa were here to keep the kids! So thankful they made the long drive to bring all of our Christmas loot. Unfortunately, our weekend with Honey and Papa was cut short when Papa started feeling bad. They had to head home a day early. :( boo!
