Mum's the word...

Our weekly football game was last night rather than tonight. It's going to be a long day.

On the football front, we won 54 to 47. It was a close game right up till the end. Our boys fought to hold on to the win, blocking a catch by the other team in their end zone in the last ten seconds of the game. Go, Hills!

On the band front, it was also pretty good. Sonshine had a good time.

Speaking of mums-- our Homecoming is in a month. Sonshine has never bought/made/given a mum to his girlfriend of the year. This year he doesn't have a choice. His sisters and I are going mum shopping next Tuesday and we're gonna make sure he has a nice mum to give to his sweet girlfriend. I told her last night since he'd never given one, he's been saving all his money up and that she was going to get a freakishly huge one. Her eyes got very big. We were joking and only because last week was Homecoming for the team/school we played and some of those girls ended up with mums that could have served as armor or a shield they were so large.

Stay tuned for the creation of the mum and then the giving and wearing of the mum!

This will be fun to watch develop! It looks like you have nice school colors to work with, too. One school I know has the colors orange and black. And one year their Homecoming was closer to the end of October. A visitor to the football game noted all the orange and black mums and said, "You folks have an intersting way of observing Halloween!" :-)

Thanks, gals. The girls and I are looking forward to it. And I can't wait to see Sonshine's girlfriend's face...
