Come game time......IT WASN'T ON!! Now this had everyone freaking out. Matt found the game online and was watching the very beginning on his tiny laptop screen with 4 other people attempting to hover over his shoulders when it dawned on Matt.........our tv has hook ups!!! He set to it, and 4 mins later.........SUCCESS!!!
Some one looks proud!
We couldn't get any sound on the tv and the laptops sound was WAY too quiet so he hooked up the computers speakers to the lap top and WOWZA.....my own McGuiver! Be still my little heart! lol
The the 1st touch down only a minute or so in and this........is what I caught on camera AFTER all the screaming of "YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS woohooooooooo" lol
We had a great little family party, and of course the Gator's won....duh!
Unfortunately Matty had a fever most of the evening, sat quietly most of the time and then became a little photographer,
making Matt hold his froggie and pose with it..lol what a Ham.
mini pizza making
I love College football, I love Saturday night games, and I love having my boys all around me enjoying the same thing and not fighting with one another for at least a 3-4 hour stretch..lol I need more football games!! lol

A few of the awesome things we did while out there:
1: Put up out tents in the pitch black.
2: Foraged for fire wood in the dark, there wasn't enough and the next day had to drive
15 miles and pick up fire wood out of the tree line. Can we say REDNECK much?
3: Cooked some tin foil dinners and chowed down in the dark...ooohhhh the bliss that is
carrots, onions, red potatoes, and ground chuck! SIGH something this baby will actually
let me hold down.lol
4: Swimming in the NASTY murky lake! (WOW the MWR's photographer is AMAZING,
because this place looked AWESOME online, the actual camp site was TINY, and soooo
back woods, WOWZA, but no matter what the kids had a blast with Matt, and the cool water
felt great on swollen feet!
5: listened to fish jump in the water all night, out tents were right on the water, it was rather
6: Matthew attempted to complete a "flying squirrel" off the see-saw and didn't quiet stick
the landing, busted open his chin and got a wicked bruise. He blamed his flying leap off
on Cody skyrocketing him...lol I agree.
7: Got annoyed that our camping neighbors had a mini schnauzer puppy that was a non
stop yipper! I am sooooooooo glad we have a dog that is almost 100% silent! She barked
in excitement 2x the entire time we were out there, despite all the people, all the dogs and
so on! YAY cupcake!
I have to say, one of my favorite moments of the entire trip was the sense of humor my family has! We bought walkie talkies for the kids to play with and so on. Matt helped them pick call signs. Matt was Apache Red Five Delta. Michael was Comando (seeing as he doesn't ever wear underoo's unless forced), Cody was HULK, and Matty was Lightening McQueen. Matty like running over to the play ground equipment (within eye sight) with a walkie talkie clipped to his shorts so we didn't have to yell. We would do a check in with him and he would lift his leg funny and try talking to his thigh as though it wasn't necessary to hold down the button, we got a real giggle out of that. Cody however had me almost falling out of my camp chair when over the walkie we hear...."Apache Redneck Delta....come in...over" Matt's face was classic! "Did you just call me Apache Redneck??" "Ya that's your call sign right?" Sigh....that and Matty would sit in his chair saying "Roger.....roger that" over and over and over to everything the boys said on the walkies. Ah fun times!

And then the results
The other afternoon I was whining to my little sister Kristy about how we were going to have to wait weeks to find out what we were having and she asked me why I hadn't tried these new gender tests. I googled it and evidently it's been featured on shows like Good Morning America and so on. It's 90% accurate in lab tests and 82% with human error. You pee in a cup and basically it reads hormone levels and so on and tada. We took two to see how accurate it was. So far we are going to assume that the results are correct and that we are now expecting my 4th, Matt's 1st son! lol The kids took it well even though they have really had their fingers crossed for a sister. Now that they have an idea that it's most likely a boy they are more excited to help up try out name combinations and pick out things for the room. We aren't going to be painting the room, or shopping a lot for baby until we get the ultrasound to confirm the results. As soon as we have a name set in stone we will let everyone know, for now it's still something we are working on but having fun with it! We have been a tiny bit disappointed that we aren't having a girl but as you can see, as soon as we found out it was a boy Daddy had to run to the store and buy cute little clothes,.....well, ok , fine, we both did!
I LOVE this little dinosaur sleeper Matt bought, it's so cute!
Matt and I are having a good laugh over God's sense of humor. He must really like this joke seeing as he keeps playing it year after year. LOL!

Other than the 1st day of school, we have begun the trek to the halfway point between Fort Polk and Houston, every other weekend to meet at the drop off point for weekends with Dad. About and hour and a half to two hours each way. While Matt and I are enjoying our weekends free, it's hard for me to know they are 4 hours away, where I can't just pop over if there's an emergency, but, I have to trust in their Dad's ability to care for them, this takes A LOT of prayer..lol.
Other than all that, we have been to or thrown bbq's most weekends with work buddies and that's been fun. What was fun for Matt was his CLS class (Combat life Saver). They have to administer IV's to one another, now that should be the new Army recruiting slogan...ARMY.....be a guinea pig! HAHA. Matt stuck his partner rather quickly, his partner got him quickly......after letting him bleed a bit..hahaha just watch the video, you can hear Matt in the back ground saying "you're making a mess George" lol.
As for me, I spend my day's cleaning house, running errands, napping (yay perk of pregnancy), annoying my friends on facebook, and being the Treasurer of our FRG (family readiness group). It's so nice getting to know some of the other wives, getting involved and helping plan fund raisers and so on. It's really very fun when it comes down to it. YAY. More of that to come soon. On the baby front there should be some more news tomorrow...YAY...we know what we are having!!!.................... CLIFF HANGER!!!!!! mmmwwwhahahahahahhahaha....ok ok all you facebooker's are cheaters..lol.
