a full week late.....

Proud papa here...if you can't gloat on a blog where can you??? See below for some cool pics of both boys winning their City Championship football games. Granted they are 11 and 12, but in our little world it was big time. Both boys' teams beat the defending city champs. Hill's team won big and Wick's team, if you see below, went into OT. A certain #33 scored the winning TD on the last play! That's Daddy/Coach getting a winning hug.

That weekend we also had Abe baptized. It was a special Sunday morning with lots of friends and family. Our whole church prayed and cried for sweet baby Abe. FYI, everyone has giraffes in their living room don't they? They do if Mim (my mom) is their grandmother!
