Fabulous Friday Continued....

It was such an amazing day...for me and Keller...

The pep rally was loud & fun & crazy...

Keller is the 4th down from the top on the left side...

One of our cousins was the best cheerleader....

The coaches & the head of the journalism department surprised the team with a video...

Have you seen the Boys of Fall video by Kenny Chesney?? Google it & watch it, if not...great for all athletes. Anyway, the surprise was that they changed all the football footage in it to TCCHS footage...left in Kenny & the song & the coaches talking in it. AMAZING. I cried...but that's not a surprise.

Keller warmed up better than anyone on the team, if you ask me. All heart....

and he's the one in the middle who looks like he's praying...

#68 in all these shots....

Wishing the starters good luck....

It's kickoff time...

Looks like he played...muddy is good, right?

He cheered & urged the crowd to stand & holler the whole game...

I asked him last night if his arms were tired from waving them up & down at the crowd all night...

I've never seen him so happy....made me cry again...

We received the opening kickoff...scored a touchdown on the 2nd play from scrimmage. That was the only time we led....UNTIL we finally took the lead with 6 minutes to go. We stopped them twice after that. And then....the buzzer sounded...


It's not too late for you to still win our giveaway this week....if you haven't already entered...or even if you have, enter again...increase your odds...

Leave Keller a comment here (or on Facebook, which seems to be the most popular route) and congratulate him & his team for a hard-fought win last night!!! That's all you have to do to enter to win...way easier than what Keller & his team went thru to win last night!

I don't think Keller's feet have touched the ground yet!

Way to go, Jackets and #68! I've never been so proud!! (and yes, I cried some more)

Fabulous Friday is an understatement...

Today is fabulous because we're going to give away another great prize.

But, today is more than fabulous in our world. It's a frenzy of excitement and nerves. It's a first. It's going to be fun from beginning to end (hopefully). It's been on Keller's mind since last April...when he decided to try out for the highschool football team. TODAY IS KELLER'S FIRST FOOTBALL GAME.

It's a varsity game, so not sure if he'll see action on the field. He's just a Freshman. And at 6' 1.75", he still looks small next to the upperclassmen. And, he's still my baby, of course. So, I'm perfectly happy just seeing him in his uniform....seeing him run on the field...seeing him be a part of something so much bigger than himself.

Our day started at 6am...dressing in his varsity blazer and tie presented by the coaches yesterday. Then, a few last minutes to study for a World Geography test. And, Keller actually let me take a couple pictures...not many, but I'll take it.

Then, off to fun for me to watch his 'swagger' as he left the car & walked to his fun to see girls' heads turn toward the football fun to see him 'high five' another lineman.

I hope Keller soaks it all in. And enjoys the fruits of his labor for the last 5 months...4 hours a day in 100+ degree heat every day. I hope he walks with pride all day knowing that he is one of only 7 Freshman to make Varsity. Not bad for a kid who had only previously played 4 football games at the Y in 5th grade. I want him to never forget the sound of the band and cheers at his first pep rally today. (and he even agreed to let me come & take pix at it...with permission from the coaches of stay tuned for those this weekend) I want him to enjoy the short ride with his team across Thomas County Central (county school, Keller's school) kicks off the season with the biggest rival in our going to play the Thomasville Bulldogs (city school). I hope he remembers every word his coach has to say before running on the field. I hope he listens to the crowd tonight. And hears the drums & the cheerleaders & all the noise of this town that fills that stadium tonight.

It's big. It's Keller's day. Truly, a FABULOUS FRIDAY!

Ok, back to what you can win & how....

Ok, this is the easiest giveaway contest EVER to enter to win! But, bear with me just a minute before we get to that part...

What are we giving away? What could you win?!

How 'bout this Acrylic Cupcake Album from Clear Scraps??

It's pretty dang cute...and it's approximately 8x8 in size. It's just one of the many adorable products from our friends over at Clear Scraps. Visit them at and tell 'em we sent ya!

Ok, back to the contest this week....seeing that cute cupcake album, does it kinda make you think of birthdays?? Hmmm....who's birthday is this week??? Why, Keller, of course!!

Yep, Keller turns 15 on Sunday. So, if you are the kind to attend church (or even if you watch from home on tv like me....or if you just want to say a random prayer), please say one for me on Sunday. I'm having a hard time accepting that my baby is going to be 15. And the he started highschool this past Monday. Freshman. Football team. 15. How? Mind-boggling.

Ok, last time to reign myself in & back to the contest at's as easy as it gets...leave a comment here to wish Keller a Happy Birthday! Our theme for him this weekend is Fabulous & 15, so it's perfect to go with our Fabulous Friday here. Send Keller good wishes, be entered to win a cupcake album. Told ya it was easy.

Oh,'s my baby on the first day of school this year. He just appears to be 6 feet 1 inch. He just appears to have a size 15 foot. He just appears to have football-ready neck and shoulders. In reality, he's 36 inches tall & still sits in my lap & still giggles at my silly jokes. (I know, I know...I need therapy)

Happy Friday,
