All my football talk this fall, the season went on ,and on, and on! It wasn't a bad thing, actually a fun thing. After Taylor finished his sophomore season, he was invited to continue on with the varsity team, so all in all we attened 24 football games this season (that is about 3 season's worth of game rolled into 1 season). The varsity team went on to Metrodome to play in the semi-finals for the state championship! We lost, but it was a VERY FUN year!
Next we moved onto dance. Remember the back issue with Emily? That long word? Well, she tried to be on the team, but had to step down due to her back. It was a very difficult decision, bittersweet for all of us. She has been dancing since she was 3 years old and not to be able to finish her senior year is just plain TOUGH!!
NOW, we have basketball for Taylor (never sits still). Just started practicing last week. First game is next week!!
ME? Well, I keep plugging along with everything... Have you seen my new Christmas tags on Etsy? My fun new ornaments on my website? My Ebay store has some good deals (and the SALE button my website too).
I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!

So now this morning, in between the chaos I managed to get a few pictures again. Here is Emily first day as a SENIOR!! Getting ready to leave in her car!
And then one together.....the poor kid NEEDS a haircut, but we have had NO time for that with football!! So, I guess he just keeps flipping those bangs to the side for the time being!!!Ahhhhhh all day peace and quiet....

It was really strange, my husband's stepdad had an appointmen at the Heart Hospital at Abbott at the same time. We were only a few floors and a few corners away from each other!
Emily was told she could start to wean from the brace and get into PT sessions and life should be back to normal!! She is hoping she can get her stamina back and be on the school dance team again this coming year!
After we did the hospital thing, we landed here:
This could possibly be my all time favorite store!!
Now that I have Emily on the mend, I have to take Sadie to the vet, she has the annoying habit of licking her front paws until they are almost raw. I am not sure what they will do for her, but there seems to be a problem and I guess I have to find out what it is!
Just got back from the vet---allergies!! It is always something! Had to get meds for her too! UGH!

The little guy belongs to one of the coaches!!
Sorry about all the fencing, there just isn't a good place to take a picture at this field!!
Here is a better picture of my almost 16 year old son (who gives me my gray hair), this was taken after his 9th grade season. I suppose he is chewing on sunflower seeds! Is there anything else to chew on at a baseball game??
I am working on some new things for my Etsy site and Ebay, have you seen my America Star Banner on Ebay? If you love Americana, you must take a peek:
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I think we are playing B's baseball (that would be the other team Taylor plays on) and then rush back for a spaghetti dinner at the local VFW!!
In the name of baseball......Amy

I told you she was cute!!!
Here is one of the things I made with Cosmo Cricket's Lacing Cards and Basic Grey's paper:
This is Emily, we call her "Em", at four stages of her life. I started getting sentimental, she just finished her junior year TODAY. I now have to say she is a SENIOR. That is hard to do!!Summer vacation starts tonight for my kids, they will be running me ragged, 2 baseball teams, football camps, basketball camps, basketball summer league, dance camp, and dance practices....ugh! I hear several teenage boys (now Sophomores) coming through my doors as I type.....Well, I think this is a good start for my blog.....or is it not??
Tootle loo, Amy
