Football weekends

Football season is here!!! Oh how I love making some good tailgaiting food and enjoying the game (or the parts I can watch with 2 little kids!)
Last weekend, the game was at home.  It was supposed to be raining all day so we had decided to just hang out at home.  Riley worked that morning, so the girls and I went to Publix to get our ingredients for our yummy tailgating food.  Riley's Dad came to watch the game with us!

I made taco shells, fiesta dip and Pizza bites.  It was all very good!
I love having Pinterst around!!!

The girls in their uniforms.  They wouldn't cooperate
to take a picture together!

This was Saturday morning! :)  Such a happy baby!

This past weekend the game was in Arkansas.  Friday night, Riley and I went to eat with two other couples at Nick's in the Sticks.  We have started a "Supper Club" but rather than having dinner at each other's houses, we all pick a night and get sitters and go out to eat together.  It was so much fun!  We had not been to Nick's in probably 3 years or longer so it was fun to go back and the ticket is always CHEAP! ;)   Our sitter got last minute tickets to Arkansas, so Mom and Dad came and spent the night and kept the girls since Mom had to work on Saturday.  AR went back with my Dad on Saturday and spent the night with them.
We had 3 couples and their kids over to watch the game and we had so much food!  Each of us ended up bringing/making 3 things so we had quite the variety!  Have I mentioned how incredibly hard it is to lose weight during football season! :/
I made the caramel apple dip, homeade pizza rolls and rotel cups.  We also had a tomato basil dip, corndog bites, chicken nuggets, Bama cookies, cheeseburger dip, smoked wings, bacon swiss dip, hummus and an apple dessert!  YUM!!!!!  Good thing this was lunch and supper!

The game was a Shutout so it got a little boring toward the end...but so glad we were on the winning side of it! :)
All ready for church

Loving the one on one time!

Sunday, Ava Kate slept in until 9!!!  So we headed to Sunday School and then went to FIVE for brunch...more fattening food but oh so good!  We got to sit in their new Java section and I got a Mocha Latte...just what I needed! ;) 
Ava Kate enjoyed all the attention she got on Saturday and Sunday.  I think she could get used to that!
I think we are going to take Anna Riley to the game this Saturday!  It will be her first game!!  I am sure we won't last long but it is just Fl. Atlantic so it won't be so bad if we have to leave early.

We need to try FIVE. We have never been there and love to go out for Brunch. Thanks for the suggestion :)
