Final Home Football Game End Of The Pre Game Meal

Since Justin started on Varsity this year, I wanted to commemorate the first year of varsity football in a special way. Every home game, I prepare a pregame meal and send an open invite to all the football players. Our first pregame meal had twelve of the fellas showing up. We've had as many as twenty two and as few as nine, but regardless of how many come, it's always been a lot of fun.

Tonight is not only the last home game of the season, but it's also parents'
night. Parents will be escorted by their football player from the field into the stands. It's a long honored tradition in Wink Football. This evening's game is being played against our biggest rival, Iraan Braves. I happen to work for the Iraan School District. But don't you worry, I know exactly where my loyalties lie...GO WILDCATS!!!

Whisky has been missing now for two weeks. Whisky was our new kitty and while we were away for a few days, Whisky went on his own vacation and hasn't returned. This year's jack'o'laterns are all themed around cats in honor of our missing beloved Whisky. We didn't have him long, but he definitely made a huge impression on this humble family.

I'm so sorry about Whiskey, but maybe he'll come home still. Your pumpkins honor him well.

You kids carved those pumpkins? Very impressive. We need to get you a better camera for Xmas. I'm sending a message to Santa right after I finish this comment.

I have pics of the other two pumpkins we did, but haven't posted them yet. I don't think I've been good enough for Santa :(
