I was so excited that DJ would be able to drop off Gretchen and Megan at their schools and that Adalyn and I wouldn't have to go anywhere! I had plans to stay home and sew all day long. That was ruined when I remembered Thursday night that Addy had her two month well baby check up on Friday at 11.
She had a great check up and since I was in the middle of town, and there were three sewing supply stores nearby, Addy and I went and priced embroidery machines! I announced on my facebook page last week that I've finally decided it's due time that I take the plunge and purchase my own machine in order to grow my business!
We ended up not getting home until 2 and we were able to stay home for all of 30 minutes before we had to leave again to go pick up the girls from school. Poor Addy was exhausted.
Gretchen spent the night with two friends Friday night, which left DJ and I with the younger girls.
Meggie was thrilled to have some mommy and me time while we waited on DJ to get home.
Saturday morning, DJ headed to the team hotel for meetings. I picked up the house, then Meggie and I made chocolate cupcakes.
She had to taste test one!
We decorated the cupcakes with blue icing and gold sprinkles and little footballs for TU's first home game this season!
After all of the girls had naps, they got ready for the game in their spirit wear dresses that I made.
Their dresses (and bows) are available on my page; starting at just $40.00
For some reason, Meggie was still whining after her nap and did not want to cooperate with getting her picture made. Addy didn't have a good mid-afternoon nap and was exhausted. I didn't even try to get a picture of all three of the girls before we left; because I knew that at least one of them would be screaming.
We got to the game early so we could enjoy pre-game festivities.
We watched the band perform.
Meggie was her typical shy girl at first. She wasn't so sure about the loud music coming from the band.
Gretchen wanted to play on the inflatable bouncy house and slide, so we headed that direction.
At first, Meggie wanted to play too, but when I tried to put her inside the house she cried. So we just watched Gretchen.
Afterwards, I decided it was entirely too hot and we headed inside to the stadium to find DJ and get settled before kickoff.
We have a family suite this year for the game, and there was so much more room for the girls to play and the windows are larger so we can easily watch the game!
DJ met us in the suite before he had to head over to the press box.
We attempted a family picture and weren't very successful. There's always next time!
Gretchen had fun playing with her friends.
I leave a toy bag in DJ's office and we drag it out whenever we're up there. I'm so glad that I thought to do this last year; it's been the best because we're not dragging in toys with us, as I use to when it was just Gretchen.
There were plenty of snacks and the girls treated it as a free for all.
Meggie ran around barefoot and you can see how dirty her little feet got!
Addy was great during her first game! She enjoyed the sling or the bjorn carrier and sat in her carseat just for a little bit. She took little cat naps and ate twice.
Meggie ate lots of candy and cupcakes!
TU won the game by a field goal kick! I always say that field goals win ball games and it was so true at Saturday nights game!
After the game, the girls and I headed down to DJ's office to put away the toy bag and to say goodnight to DJ. He has to stay and edit game film, and I think he said he made it home by 2 am.
The girls and I made it home around 11 and Addy and I finally got to bed closer to 12.
Saturday was such a long day that we decided to skip church and recover on Sunday. DJ also needed to cut the grass. The girls played and I made us all breakfast, and DJ went back to work around noon.
Gretchen went to our neighbor's house to play and Addy, Megan, and I all napped.
Football and Fall feel real when we have our first home game! I love weekends that keep us busy but give us time to relax and enjoy each other!
This weekend we play at OU and even though it's close, I definitely do not plan on taking the girls!
