It was another BUSY Fall weekend for the Rose Family!
We started it off Friday Night at our high school football game.
It was not a good night for our boys..... (frown).
First off....Reid was running fever all day at school. Thank goodness I work at the high school and can keep "tabs" on him. He had been feeling bad all week and I knew he would not tell his coaches that he was. No matter what! So, I gave him tylenol before he left school for the game and called all the trainers and his close coaches and warned them about him being "sick" and to make sure he drank lots of water and to check on him. Ohhh.....if he only knew! Ha Ha!
He played well though....not his best game, however no one had their best game Friday night. Grant it, we played one of the TOP teams in the state but we did not play them as well as we could. Reid was double teamed all night and played more as a blocker against this offense instead of them letting him go and run the tackle. As parents, we hate that for his stats....ha ha. But, he does what he is told to do for the team....and that is what matters most! As sick as he was....he played hard and stayed in the entire game. He was sooo disappointed, mostly in some of his teammates. They were not playing well and seemed to be making excuses. We have a few a few teachers that were on the sidelines for being "Teachers of the Week" and they had come up to us after the game to tell us how impressed they were with Reid's attitude. He was getting on to his teammates....but motivating them at the same time. He is a FIGHTER and NEVER gives up.....no matter what! That's my BOY!! Needless to say.....he was one down kid Friday night. He HATES to lose......
He did make a comment that the trainers "babied" him all night.....Ha Ha. I wonder why???
Here are some pics from the game....we played away.

Kick Off...under the Friday Night Lights!
Last home game of the season!
On Saturday, we headed out to my sisters town for my nephew Elijah's birthday party. It was an hour and a half drive one way.....ahhhh. Mom and Dad drove out there with us and Maddie brought her BFF Elizabeth.
Eli is 5!
With the long drive there and back....it was a LONG day. It was fun and it is always a blessing when we can all get together! Brant and Reid stayed home since Reid had been sick, and Brant got some major work done around the house. It was a bautiful day, so he worked in the yard....I will post pictures later this week!
On Sunday....we went to church, and then had a relaxing day at home. We came home and fixed chili dogs and watched Brett Favre and his Vikings lose their first game (frown). I LOVE Brett Favre , he is such a champion! I am really rootin' fo him this year!
It was MISSION ORGANIZATION for me today! I got our coat closet cleaned out and organized with all our winter coats, jackets, scarves, gloves and hats. Like we really need all of that in Texas, right? Ha! It was 85 degres today....but it could be 40 degrees the next day here. You never know! I also got a ton of laundry done and completely cleaned out my master closet. Ugh! Not fun....but rewarding when it is all done! I feel mush better....it is stressful for a girl to have a disfunctional closet!
Maddie had her select team's basketball practice today rom 4-6 today, so I was able to get go and hang out with my Mom friends and had some good laughs while we watched the girls practice! Then back home to watch some more football with the hubbie and Meagan (Reid's precious girlfriend) came over to watch the Cowboy game and stayed for dinner. Brant cooked chicken alfredo (love him so) while I finished up some more organizing and getting all the kids things ready for the school week. I even had time to bake some Blueberry Cheesecake Muffins for in the morning as we run out the door!
I finished just in time for Brothers and Sisters. I do not have a ton of time for TV and have to DVR almost anything I watch....but Sunday nights is the one night I sit down and watch Brothers and Sisters. Love, Love, Love that show. It so reminds me of my family! Ha Ha.
Well....I hope ya'll have a super FAB week!
