Our Weekend: Night One - Not Quite a Sweater But Almost . . .

Tonight we went to Wallene's Homecoming game for High School.

No, you may not ask how the football team did.

But the band?

Look at my smiley little girl:

She is absolutely NOT supposed to be smiling.
That was the look on her face when she realized we were there.
We waited until after halftime and met up for a quick picture before Dad and I headed for home. It was cold.

Now, if you look closely at my lap. . . THAT is the sweater I was wearing tonight.  It is my favorite sweater, but I was gifted with a lovely Band Sweatshirt this evening, so, of course, I had to put that on.  No complaints - that sweater kept my legs very warm while sitting in my chair.

Still - I count it as sweater number two for the season.

Tomorrow?  Getting ready for the Homecoming Dance. Prep, primp and pretty up!
Sunday - I get doughnuts and diner food, plus a visit with Squirrel <----best part.

I think I need a nap.  Stay warm Tadpoles.  We'll see ya' on the flipside - all prettied up and girlie for Homecoming. [Well, Wallene, at least.]

Hi Skippy! Lovely to see those great photos. Love the smile on Wallene's face when she saw you were both there. Bless! Doesn't that just make life worthwhile?? I'm glad you were wrapped up nice and warm in that sweater you were gifted, but the one on your lap looks really nice. I think I've only seen photos of you in a baseball cap before, so it was nice to see you with hair!! Hee Hee! Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and I'm looking forward to more piccies. Try not to get too tired. (Hope little Spot is feeling a bit better by the way). Hugs.

Oh this brings back memories... my kids were in the marching band back in high school, R on the flute and C on the drums. I distinctly remember freezing my buns off during football games just to watch the halftime show. What a cute daughter you have! And your sweater looks nice, you have to model it for us...

Love Wallene's smile when she realized you were there. And who doesn't love a free gift? Have fun with the kidlets this weekend. Darb and Net leave for Ohio this morning and I'll be busy trying to get our stolen wallet mess straightened out so I'll catch up with you later. Love ya!
