On to the Superbowl!!

I'm just going to warn you ahead of time....there are lots of pics and I'm an extremely proud mama!

Cade's football season has been amazing.  They were undefeated until 2 weeks ago when we lost to the Prairieville Broncos.  It was a tough loss, made tougher that the officials were completely one-sided.  (I won't get into that....just know that it's been documented).  We also lost last week's game.  But we made it into the playoffs, which were yesterday.  Guess who we played?  Yep...the Broncos!  We wanted this game so bad!  (So bad that I bought Cade new cleats 3 days ago.  His were not gripping anymore and we were not going to lose this game because I was too cheap to buy new cleats!!)

Going into halftime, we were down 14-0!  I was worried, and thought we might not be able to recover...but we did!  We won the game 20-14.  Our last touchdown was scored with 30 seconds left on the game clock (a pass from Cade).  It was amazing!!  I am so proud of the entire team for working together for this comeback win.  Of course, I have some highlight pics of my favorite #12!!

Bare with me...I took over 500 pics at this game! I guess that's what happens when I don't have 3 yr. olds distracting me :) playoff-0650ps playoff-0802ps playoff-0794ps playoff-0982 playoff-0792ps playoff-1020

Watch this next series of 3 pics.

He really smoked this kid.  Do you see what he did after?  He tapped on his helment like a drum :)  When I saw it happen, I knew there must be a story behind why he did it.  I asked him last night, but he said he didn't know why he did it.  A part of me didn't like it because it comes of cocky, but he has boys cussing him out there and doing very ugly things when they tackle him.  This was an amazing hit and the energy was definitely shifting our way.  If that's his way of "retaliating" a little...I'm good with that.

I love this.

My sweet baby boy.  Everything he does, he does with all his might.  This game was a sweet reward for all the hard work he has put in!  (and for mama shelling out $30 for new cleats!!  lol...)

Now it's time to get back to work preparing for the biggest game next week.  This team is tough, but I can guarantee, they won't work harder than we will this week!!

BTW...I already have a sitter lined up...NO distractions :)
