Are You Ready for Some Football?

This past week has been full of football, football and more football. In between I taught 4 Play Group Scrappin' classes (LOVE my Play Group* ladies!). Stay tuned later this week for photos of October's Play Group projects and class dates so you can sign up!

I thought that instead of artwork, I would share a little of what the Pedersens have been up to this week. I'm also sharing a few photos of something fun from last week too. I'll start with that...

Dawson got asked to his first dance. Since he's 16 now he is allowed to date according to Pedersen rule. His date impressed me by calling me first to make sure it was okay to ask him. Brownie points, girls! That's how to earn them with mommies! She decorated our front door with a big sign and tied balloons to Dawson's favorite treat (2 big bags of Red Vines) with a note that said "It would be SWEET if you would go to Sadie's with me." Dawson decided to answer back with cupcakes. He and I baked and decorated a couple dozen cupcakes and made them spell "YES". On the top of each cupcake, Dawson added a little flag of one of his favorite sayings. Silly but fun. We drove up to her house, Dawson left it on the doorstep, rang the bell and ran. FUN! I am still in denial that my 'baby' is 16 and dating.
Dawson's football season has begun. This past Thursday was our third Lone Peak Sophomore game and our first loss (Darn those Brighton Bengals). We are now 2-1. As sad as Dawson was to lose, he was a little bit happy about his sack, 2 tackles for loss, and several assisted tackles.

and he gets him!
All but Tannon (he had to work) piled in the car to head down to Cedar City for Southern Utah University's first home game of the season. Easton will be red-shirting this year but was honored to be one of only a few red-shirts to be asked to dress for the game. SUU beat the University of San Diego 32-3. GO T-Birds! Dan, Dawson, Daysha and I all had fun cheering them on.

Warm ups...

Tannon is going crazy waiting for his mission (he leaves Oct. 20) and trying not to lose his mind while watching his brothers play football and not playing himself. While we were gone he hooked up with some buddies and played a couple of flag football games. He says he misses football so bad it hurts. 2 more years, my son. 2 more years. I can just imagine what it will be like to have Easton AND Tannon playing at SUU together. With Tannon playing QB and Easton receiver, we might actually get to witness one of our sons throwing to the other in a college football game. How cool would that be? But, first things first. Tannon, you'll be a GREAT missionary!

Since I don't have any football photos of T from this week, I thought I'd share one of him doing one of his other favorite things...eating!I still haven't adjusted to having Kori, Rick and Daci in Chicago. Love you guys! I wish you were here to watch all this football!

All I can say is its a darn good thing you finally posted, I was going through withdrawals. In fact, I sat down at the computer right now to put in a formal request for a new post. Good thing I saw this first :) Its fun to see what is going on there but it makes me really sad that I am missing it all!

I don't know where to start. This post is a huge mash-up of Pedersen Goodness. First, your little cupcake & his cupcakes. Sweet is written all over that. He is so stinkin' cute and those cakes look yummy! Secondly, E & D are going to make the most beautiful babies and from the look in their eyes you are getting them soon. hubba hubba. Thirdly, I know the photo was blurry but your hair was rockin'. I like that style on you! The football pics are wonderful & it doesn't hurt that your kids are always making the plays. Lucky momma! Lastly, what is T Man eating? Good boy choosing water. I am officially jealous of your family. If I didn't love you so much I would have to hate you.

Such a sweet story about Dawson. I love that he helped make the cupcakes for the reply. What an awesome post. TFS.

Rick and Kori said...

I agree with Tracey....love your hair in that pic!

Karen Pedersen said...

Really, Kori and Tracey? You like the hair? That was after a wind-blown night of football. Tracey, you crack me up! LOVE YOU, Girl! Tannon is eating chicken/broccoli casserole, a Pedersen mainstay. I'll post the recipe for you on the old blog this week.

Tracey Mason's Studio said...

Yep on the hair. Wind-blown is your look! lol

I can't wait for that recipe! Serously.

Hey check out my blog. I just posted my NFL pics.
