Rilyn’s cheer competition!

Yesterday was Rilyn’s cheer competition!  This is like their “recital”.  Her age group is not judged competitively, but they still give them “scores” so they know what to work on.  Rilyn got to be part of the stunts this year, and if you ask her, that is her favorite part of the routine!

getting ready to start!

Happy Saturday!

I was in charge of the “photo booth” at the Manor Elementary “Carnival” last night!  It’s funny how some people really love photo booths with silly props and then others…well, they were forced to put something on by their parents.  Happy Saturday everyone!

flashback friday-pumpkin patch

James reminds me that our kids will not want to take pictures at the pumpkin patch forever…sigh.

It is true.  My own mother might of tried to force pumpkin patch pictures for too long…

You might be too old to be taking pictures at the pumpkin patch when the only picture you can get of your teenager, who just got finished with soccer practice, and is still wearing her shinguards, while drinking a diet Pepsi…
is when she is not looking.

I promise not to take any Gotcha! pictures at the patch like the one above. For one thing, I would never let my kids go to the patch wearing what I was wearing! 😉

pumpkin patch!

We went to the Elgin Christmas tree farm on Monday to have some fun with tractors, hay, and, of course PUMPKINS!!

The kids love the many mazes!

cornfield maze!

I think this was Asher and Caden’s favorite thing to do!

Rilyn had the homecoming dance for the Manor Falcons on Saturday night!

She told me that she learns her moves from daddy! 😉

I love this one!

This is Rilyn and one of her good friends from cheer and her class!

Homecoming 2011

Rilyn had her “homecoming” game yesterday!  She got to cheer at Manor High’s football stadium and they got mums.  This year they wore them as headbands!

All the parents make signs and hang them on the fence for the homecoming game
