Cowboy, Wedding and Soccer!

What a month it's been. Tobin chose his career path...cowboy. Sela got married. And the girls dominated in soccer.
Apparently his sisters wanted people who saw him to know his name...hence the T.O.B.I.N. stickers on his forehead. Thank goodness, because we were wondering who he was.
So Obse came downstairs and gave me and Jason some homemade invitations to our youngest daughters wedding. Of course we attended, but were totally under dressed. Yes, there is a ring on the doll couch Tobin is holding. He was the ring bearer.

After Jason walked her through the closet, Sela gave a speech telling us who our new son-in-law was. He seems nice enough, just wish we could have met him before the big day.

Obse, the maid-of-honor, gave a touching speech about her sister, which included little known facts like her name and age. I cried.
It was truly a joyous occasion for all of us. Congratulations Sela Baby!

Daddy handled the news of his daughter's wedding with a little less enthusiasm. He'd prefer we don't talk about the subject until they're at least 35.

So the girls had their first soccer game last Saturday. Unfortunately I was out of town, so Jason was the ultimate 'Soccer Dad'. Not only did he bring two of the team members, but also a little cheerleader named T.O.B.I.N. and some fruit roll ups for the team afterwards. This is how they rolled in.

For the love of common sense, can someone please tell that boy's parents that shin guards go INSIDE his socks!

I think the yellow team won just by the sheer intimidation our girls brought to the team. Seriously, would you want to try to get past that impenetrable wall?

Mia Hamm eat your heart out.
For those who aren't in the know, T-bone is hyper-vigilantly anal about his hands being dirty. Here he is absolutely frozen until someone removes that offending piece of lawn on his palm.

What a relief. Now Samuel L. Jackson Jr. can enjoy the rest of the game!

Channeling Michael Jordan.

Frankly, Obse is just down right annoyed with having to carry her team to victory.

Nothing like post-game celebratory water! Thanks soccer dad!

Just look at him. You can see that athleticism runs all the way through the fam even to our dog Twinkle Toes.
However, sometimes just thinking about sports wears out our Mona.

This is Jo's friend, Cami. I LOVE your blog--can't get enough of the kids or your commentary. And everyone looks so happy and funny; you must spend most of your time cracking up. I only hope to find a wedding dress as beautiful as Sela's for my April wedding!
