Let's see... how about a few quick pictures of Delaney and her middle school newcomb team posing with their first-place ribbons for winning their CountyTournament last night? They went undefeated to come in first place out of six county-wide teams. Go Delaney! Go Hueytown! (We were behind in the final match 12-5 and came back to win 18-16! Very exciting!)
Before we left for the games, though, I had to convince
This is the closest I could get to an action shot at the tournament. (Pretty bad, huh?) It was pretty near impossible to get any action shots inside the gym with the girls moving around so much, with the little camera I had. (It will be a challenge to do a scrapbook page with this one! lol) But I wanted to show Delaney on the court!
We saw a ton of girls that we knew from different schools, from playing with or against them in travel softball over the years. We even played against
Delaney did complain that they only got ribbons (she's used to big trophies from softball tournaments). LOL We were so proud of them, though!
Now, I have a very serious question for you all..
Do YOU like candy corn?
My problem is that I DO like candy corn!!! I like it very much!! (It's sorta like my strange attraction to Peeps at Eastertime. I can't get enough of them!) Well...Remember the basket of it in my last post? Well, it's all gone! Although Scout ate a few of them, I pretty much ate 98% of them!!
(And kinda related to this because, well, if I keep eating candy corn and other assorted treats at the rate I'm eating them, I could be as big as a house very soon. When I was getting dressed the other night for Bunko, I looked in the mirror and moaned, "This really does make me look fat." I didn't realize that Scout had heard me but when I left for the party an hour or so later she said to me, "You don't look fat in that, Momma."And then last night at the newcomb tournament we were in the bathroom and she looked in the full-length mirror. She turned around and looked at her backside. "Are my hips big?" she asked. Okay...I need to be more careful about talking about the size of my hips because she obviously listens to EVERYTHING I say! LOL)
And now... My plans for the weekend?
...polishing off the last of the candy corn.
...totally chilling tonight (Delaney has a very early softball game in the morning, so tonight we will play chess, eat some Burger King, watch some Hannah Montana, and read).
...waiting to hear from McKenna on how the high school football game goes tonight (it's an away game, plus it's turned downright chilly. So I don't really want to take the girls out in it!)
...going to Delaney's softball tournament tomorrow. 4 games!
...making goodies for a Halloween party Sunday night. Can't wait to share pics of my Monster Cupcakes! (and us all duded up in costumes!)
... doing some scrapbooking (finishing up a few pages that I may upload later tonight)
...feeling sad because there's no
...probably buying more candy corn (but trying to resist!)
What are you guys up too?
