Go Bears, Go Bears, Go Bears, Go Bears Go!

Howdy-ho neighbors... not sure where that came from, other than the new Tim Allen show that keeps commercialing... is that a word? Remember Wilson?!

Well, we had an exciting weekend in Waco... truly!

But before we get there... I have a little Katie's Hair Weekly for ya... I cut it off... ALL OF IT! It is the shortest I've had it in years! Maybe I've only had my hair shorter than or as short as this one other time...

Here's the pic...
It's a pic from the Flying J parking lot in Jarrell, TX... with my phone... so give me some grace... or don't because I LOVE IT! Bye, bye hair!! See ya lata...

So back to our exciting weekend in Waco. We drove in for lunch on Saturday to celebrate Ree Ree's 28th... I mean 21st birthday! Of course, the occasion was Ree Ree's birthday BUT the big deal was the BU football and Caden's debut to the land of football this season... he and Justin got to go to the game last night... just to test the waters... see how far we'd come in a year... was he ready for at least a few quarters? Maybe even the whole first half??!!

The verdict...??? THREE QUARTERS! Daddy was THRILLED! And the Bears won... so what could be better than that... BUT let me just say that Kaki and I were getting a little worried as we were watching it from home... the first quarter had us doing some serious nail-biting... or hiding under the couch-ing... eek! But justice prevailed ...

Kaki and I did a lot of playing last night... a little girls nights if you will... the Prince and Me on ABC Family and then the Bears... done and done!

And now for Baylor's BIGGEST fan...

The Chade man... pre-game... at the house... you think he's excited?!!

Heeeeeeyyyyyy, sip 'em Bears... yes I know I said sip 'em... that's how he says it!

A little tailgatin' with Uncle Tag and Aunt Ree Ree's friends... a hot dog from the boys...

Thankfully, Nana and Bop's ticket neighbors were gone for this game and Caden and Justin got to snag the seats next to them! FUN times!!

New pom-pom!! I had packed Caden's old pom-pom... but he got a new one at the game so you better believe he was gonna shake that baby!!

Super fan... Caden!
Half-time... eyes looking a little tired and swollen BUT hanging... he LOVED the band... march, march, march!!
And half-time meant snack time... Kettle Corn anyone?!! Caden LOVES tot-torn... but it doesn't love him quite as much... it is only a sometimes treat! :)

He got home about 9:15 last night and was DYING to tell me all about the game. The first thing he showed me is how the drummers in the band marched and played the drums. He LOVES drummers... I think I might have a little drummer boy on my hands! He was also keen on finding Bruiser the Bear the ENTIRE game. He kept asking Bop... "where is the Bear? Is him?" And I think it was because Bruiser is obviously awesome BUT more so because Caden wanted to be sure to keep an eye on that silly bear... no surprise mascot attacks... we're still not super comfortable with things in costume!! Get excited for Halloween! :) Yes!

Today, he told me a story about how the band parted at the beginning of the game and made a tunnel and all of the "football guys" ran out of the tunnel and then something about the Army guys on the BIG TV... thinking maybe when they sang the Star-Spangled Banner and held the flags? Either way... they made an impression on him!

What a FUN FUN day for Caden. I have to admit I was a bit jealous! Justin had the BEST time watching his budding football fan! I can't wait to experience the excitement myself... :) Homecoming... just a few weeks! So excited!

When we got home today a special package was waiting for Caden on the porch... his NEW set of blocks... since they are his OBSESSION!!! Now Nana and Bop and KK and Albi each have a set... and so do we... and they are each different... so here's to building LOTS of "docks!"

He likes to USE "all dem docks" to build his castle... not just a few... what a funny little man!!

In other news...

Justin INSISTED I put this on the blog... as a recommendation of course... in no way are we poking fun at our "naked" dog... never!

We have had labs for well the entire 7 years we've been married... and NEVER once have we shaved them... thought about it several times, but just not done it, despite our shedding woes... and Dyson-cleaning!

BUT... we finally did it last weekend...

Max before...

Max after...
And no shedding... beautiful! It has seriously helped the MESS!!


Happy weekend everyone!! And thanks Nana and Bop for a fun weekend of birthday celebrating and Baylor Bears!! Happy birthday Aunt Ree Ree!! Hope 21 is the best year yet... wink, wink!

AND NOW FOR MY FAVORITE PICTURE OF THE WEEKEND...
