We had another rainy Halloween this year...so there weren't many pictures! But there was lots of fun! Our neighborhood is so awesome - we have so many kids and everyone is big on Halloween. Many really go all out with haunted houses and lots of decoration and, of course, candy! Even adult treats get given out! LOL
Pre-Hallween antics!

Aaron's First Buck

Aaron is finally a licensed hunter with his own gun! He's actually been hunting for a while, but never had his own gun or made his own kill...so this was his year!! His Uncle David can't talk smack to him anymore! Ha ha!

Mother/Daughter Weekend

Being that this weekend was youth weekend, Aaron & Michael headed out of town to hunt so Emma and I had the house to ourselves all weekend long! It was so nice & quiet!! LOL

After the football game Friday night the boys headed out so Emma and I went to the Haunted Carwash...Emma had no qualms with going...until we got there! LOL Once she saw what was waiting for us she took up residence in the floorboard of the Jeep and didn't move!

Flag Football Has Begun

So, Aaron has been pretty busy year round with baseball since he started playing and going Select that isn't going to slow down...so we weren't sure how football was going to fit in, but when your teammates for baseball are playing football that means your schedules will kinda line up the same!

So...we're playing winter football now! And I'm honestly so excited - I've wanted Aaron to play football for a while now. And while they didn't win their first game it was still fun. And along with Aaron I think most of the boys on the team have never played football before...maybe only like three of them. So they all have a lot of learning to do together!

Scorpions Baseball

We had quite the busy weekend!! Friday we drove up to Austin for my nephew's wedding...we had planned to spend the weekend, but then our weekend got full with stuff going on at home. So, we got up way too early to drive home Saturday (5AM) for a 10AM football game that got cancelled! Sheesh! Then we had a 5PM birthday party for our nephew turning 10 and a 9PM birthday party for our friend turned 45! Then a double-header Sunday as the baseball fields and had to get Red Ribbon week attire in order for Monday! It was a super busy weekend!!! I am still tired.

Scorpions Spring 2018

Yesterday we had two make up games to play since we were rained out the weekend before...I almost thought we were going to get rained out again, but the fields held up so we could play! Yay!!! It started off pretty cool for game one, but by the second one we were getting a little toasty. And the mosquitoes were in full force, too - bug spray for everyone.

This weekend wasn't as victorious as last weekend, but at this level that is what's gonna happen. So it just means work harder, practice more, and get even better! This is a brand new team, too and only a few of these boys have played together before. So - next weekend will be a better one. And it wasn't for lack of playing and effort either - the boys all played great games! I was very proud of Aaron and how he played, as well as the rest of the team.

Aaron has become a great catcher - he really sees the field and is in-tune to what's happening and definitely is not afraid to send the ball when there is a steal or guard home when there is a runner coming in! I thought he'd found his home at 3rd, but that has become secondary to playing catcher now! So proud of him!

My Picasso

Emma and I had a great time today painting with friends!!! This new place we found was so much fun - I know we will go back and do many other projects now that we have found this little gem...and it's so close to home, too!!

She painted a glittery unicorn, of course...while I opted for the Tree of Love! Our friends chose two other beautiful subjects and I was so impressed with how they all turned out! We are good!!! LOL

Our little artists!

Scorpions for the WIN

So, yesterday we had make up games for the double header that was rained out last weekend. The rain missed up, but the HEAT made up for its absence for sure!

Didn't see to matter to these boys b/c they brought it - two Ws for their first games! 8 - 5 and 15 - 2 victories!

Aaron has made it home behind the plate and I am so impressed with him!! He still plays 3rd base as well and does a good job there, but I think catcher is going to be home. He really has an eye for the field and takes control! It does get hot under all that gear, though so we have to make sure in this Houston heat that he stays hydrated and cool.

He never got out yesterday and he got off a great hit yesterday right over 2nd base and into the gap. Brought in two runs with that at bat. We have a scoring app that one of the coaches is supposed to get up and running soon and I'm anxious to get it - I have a hard time keeping up with stats b/c I'm always taking pics of all the boys. The app will help me with all the details! Proud of him and all his teammates!
