Cheering The Home Team

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

We started the day off by tying our Town Color hair ribbons around our ponytails and heading down to the football field to watch the famous Thanksgiving battle between our town and their rivals.

The sun was shining but it was freezing cold outside, so we tried to dress appropriately.  In other words, we told Henry to put away the shorts and put on real pants for a change.

Much to the chagrin of the children, we elected to walk to the game.  It's very close and finding a parking space is a challenge.

We arrived early enough to get great seats at the 50 yard line:

It was not the most exciting game... well, it wasn't exciting if you were rooting for the home team (which we were).  Our rivals certainly enjoyed the game - they were winning 56 to nothing when we left in the fourth quarter.  And that doesn't include one touchdown that the refs took away for "unsportsman-like conduct."  

It just wasn't our year.

Josie enjoyed watching the cheerleaders.  Some of her friends are PopWarner cheerleaders and they were cheering alongside the high school girls.

And of course, who doesn't like a good marching band.  Well, I use the word "good" loosely.  Perhaps "energetic" was a better term.

We are having a light lunch now and will celebrate Thanksgiving with Gordy's parents at dinner time.  

Hope you are all having a wonderful day!
