I know what you're thinking - it's too early to be talking
about the Super Bowl! But not for
me, since today I had the Super Bowl for my flag football season! (You can keep up with me despite the jersey changes because of my Spidey hat.)
Since we don't keep score in my age group, we didn't really
know which teams should be playing for the championship. So instead we played a Jamboree - three
short games against three different teams. It was fun!
We won two of the three games. In the second game, I intercepted the football and ran it
back for a TD! Unfortunately, one
of my teammates was offsides, so the score didn't count. But I was still excited!
After the football game, it was time to do some yard
work. Our yard is COVERED in
leaves! We filled up 10+ bags of
them, and we're still not done.
But the sun went down and it started to rain, so we had to call it a
day. Hopefully we can finish up
tomorrow, because on Tuesday we're having a party! Mom and Dad's friend Jay is coming for a visit, so we're
having lots of folks from the lab here for dinner. Other than having to clean up ahead of time, Lilli and I are
looking forward to it!
We've had fun this week working on the great puzzle that
Sophia and Audrey sent to Lilli.
We're still not quite finished! (Lilli is providing moral support here, but she's also worked on the puzzle herself.)
Yesterday we celebrated Dad's birthday!! Mom had to go to an event at the
university in the middle of the day, so Dad and I watched UNC play a good
football game while Lilli napped.
Mom came home and cooked a big birthday dinner, and we helped with some
yummy peanut butter cookies. Happy
Birthday, Dad! (And to Audrey and
Coach from last week, and Grandma for this week! Whew, we have a lot of November birthdays!!)
Mom and Lilli did a pretty good job last week of updating
you on what Lilli is up to these days, but they forgot a few key points. First and foremost, Lilli loves
Part. Who is Part, you ask? Well, Part is a piece of her favorite
blanket (Night-Night) that came off long ago, so now Lilli just carries Part
around with her so that she can rub it on her nose while she sucks her
Part used to go all over the place with us, but Mom got
pretty worried about losing it, so now Part stays at home unless we are going
on a trip. As it is, we lose Part
at home all the time! Despite the
fact that I'm not usually very good at finding things that are lost, I often am
the one to find Part (and more importantly, I never complain about helping
Lilli look). Lilli also still has
Teddy, who was given to her when she was born by Lil's friend Juan. Teddy is pretty special too.
The other thing Mom forgot to mention is that Lilli and I
are still best friends, and we insist on sleeping in the same room every
night. (We trade each week whether
it's my room or Lilli's room.) It
works out pretty well for Mom and Dad on weekends, since when we wake up, we
just start talking or reading together, and we're not so anxious to get out of
bed! And amazingly, we don't keep
each other up late by playing.
I don't know what we'll do to keep busy next weekend with no
soccer or football. But I'm sure
we'll think of something!
