Last Weekend

This post is titled "Last Weekend" because, well I put some pics up from this past weekend. But, the bigger news is that it was the last weekend before the kick-off of college football! It just so happens to be my husband's favorite time of the year and it is right up there for me, too! Seriously, Flint wakes up like a kid on Christmas morning!!! That is just one more thing I love about him. I also love college football. There is NOTHING else like it! If you are from the south, you know exactly what I am talking about. If you are not, I hope you get to experience it someday! It makes grown men cry like babies. Women roll out in their Prada shoes and with their Louis Vuitton handbags for football games and yell just as loud as their husbands!! People serve hot dogs and barbecue at their tailgate parties on their finest bone china and silver! The smell of the barbecue fired up, the air getting a little more crisp (well, not in Waco but in most places!), head to toe in your school's colors, fight songs, mascots, the Gameday theme song "Comin to Your City" playing at my house at 10 am on Saturday mornings, Lee, Kirk, and Chris...Oh I am getting so excited just thinking about it!

So, with that being said, life is about to get crazy around here. For our family's safety, I don't post many details about Flint's job on the internet for all to read about. But, for those of you who know us, you know the fall is a busy and exciting time of the year!
Baylor kicks off their season this weekend at Wake Forest. We have high hopes for this guy:
He is known around these parts as RG3 or Robert Griffin III. What a great guy on and off the football field. We are hoping he can help lead our Baylor Bears to a bowl game this year...for the first time in...I don't even know how long. I think everyone has lost count!

And for my first love...
The Razorbacks!!!
They kick off their season in Little Rock this weekend against Missouri State.
You guys are going to have to do it without us being there again this year! But, know we are are cheering you on and send our love from Waco, Texas!
This stadium and the "A" in the pregame give me the chills!
Go Hogs and Bears!!!

SO, we had a fun "last weekend" being lazy as a family!
Cilla had a birthday party on Saturday morning! Her friend, Drew, turned two!
Here she is party-ing it up with her daddy!
Sunday we went to church and Cilla took a 2 1/2 hour nap after lunch. PTL!!! Flint and I got to have some alone time in the pool with our puppies!
I just had to take her picture Sunday morning before church in her little smocked dress! This was a gift and we have been trying to get some wear out of it because it will probably not fit next summer! It is so precious. It is blue and has little palm trees and alligators on it. Any Gator fans want to borrow it? It would be perfect!!!
And here is my little Cilla getting to be such a big girl! She just sits up in her her high chair like she has always known how do that! She also is sitting up on her own now and she is starting (early stages) to crawl! It is mostly backward right now but still, oh dear!!! Soon there will be NO holding her back!
I love you, Little Miss Sunshine, so much!!! You make mommy's and daddy's days so much brighter!!!
