Do the Turkey Trot

Gearing up for the Annual Utah Human Race
benefiting the Utah Food Bank
Early Thanksgiving morning
1,500 people, or more, join together for the The Human Race
This year they raised over $100,000 for the Utah Food Bank
Here is our team of 12 getting ready to head to the beginning line
and we're off!!
This was my two youngest bird's first time doing a 5K marathon!!
They were soooooo excited!!!
and had so much fun!!
We almost weren't able to do it, without this woman (below)
and her awesome Daughter Cheese!!!
Thank you so much again!!!
Striking a pose in mid step... 
You are Awesome Mother T.
Here comes the Finish line....
We did it!!! We are #1
Proud of my little birdies!!
My oldest had done this last year, and wanted to again, 
but was invited for some "Manly Men Time" playing Football
He had a blast!!
Now it's time to Gobble til we Wobble!!!
Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Almost Forgot

 Forgot these Gems...
Coach treated the whole team to Slurpees after practice one night!
you should have seen the chaos!!!
I think we scared a couple customers right out the door!
not to mention the sugar rush.... oie!
 3 Cheers for Coach!!!
Our last game was on the Coach's very Birthday!!
Of course we had to end with a big bang!!
They all poured their water jugs and slammed his face in a cream pie!!
Happy Birthday Coach!!

And that's a wrap!! for Kelson's Football 
*stay tuned for Brayden's :)

Party Time

 Kelson's first football season has come to a close...
and now it's Party time!!!
Time to celebrate as a team and give our last Hoo-Rah's!!
 Our Team Mom is the BEST!!!
we raised money throughout the season to pay for coach gifts and trophies for our boys...
we raised over $200!!!
The touchdown bucket was a huge success!!
(patting myself on the back) ;)
 Love these coach gifts!!! Highlights of each Coach
and the boys signed the mat that goes in the frame...
very Clever and Perfect!!!
 Another cute mom made these personalized cookies for the boys...
We really had some amazing football parents this year
 Kelson didn't want me taking picture of him...
Guess he is too Macho!!
 But this cute girl posed for pictures all night...
While Kelson was off running around with his buddies, me and Ken Doll 
had a good ol' time...
We rollerskated, went on rides, and played miniture golf!!
Golf balls hate me... I kept hitting mine into the water
 Here's my little Dude
and his very first Football Trophy!!
 Coach Jeremy saying a few words about Kelson....
 #1 Coach!!!
He was such a good coach!!
And really loved each and everyone of these boys
Thank you Coach for helping me when I needed it...
and for being part of Kelson's life :)
 This is the Team Mom!!!
Did I mention she is the BEST??
She and her Hubby went above and beyond this season!!
Thank you!!!

Rewind :: Football

 I think we had some of the Best Coaches this year!!!
 Our Boys played so tuff
and were the cutest on the field...
tiny little bodies with big bobble head helmets!!
 Kelson played the front line (Center)
 and sometimes again Boys 3 times his size!!

 Each week they would choose a player that earned the "Big Stick"

 There's my little Snapper with his hand on the ball
 Momma Proud!!!
Let's Go Cottonwood Colts!!!
What a great season!!
