A Favorite Pastime

Monday night we spent our evening doing something that I LOVE!! Football!!! Now for those of you who know me this is no surprise. For those of you that don't...I love everything about football. The game, the spirit, the food, the people. I really wish that I could have played when I was younger. I always wanted to take someone out and then get pumped up about it. I know a little twisted. I just love that sound it makes when the pads hit! AWESOME!

My daughter Makenna is a freshman this year and she made the color guard team at her school. I don't know who was more excited about her making the team me or her. You see this meant that the Gurzi's were now going to be spending our Friday nights out at the lights...Football Games!!!

Here are a few pictures of the game on Monday.

the captains go out for the coin toss. love the holding of hands. when will you ever see teenage boys holding hands???

the drumline bringing out the team.

this guy makes Ed and I laugh everytime he runs by and barefoot no less. Really fast!!!! The crowd goes wild for him and his flag!

a great play!

and then of course why we go to the game in the first place. Our beauties as we Moms call them. Makenna would kill me if she knew I used this picture but it is not that easy to get a good picture when you want to watch the whole show. So this will have to do. She is lucky enough to be on an award winning team. They travel everywhere. It has been such a blessing to watch her grow in the sport yes i said sport. They are at the school almost more than the football team! It has been quite and experience for her and us. Ed and I miss her tons. She is never home and when she is she is planning something or going somewhere.

Enjoy those little ones. They grow up so very fast and you will be surprised how soon you will start talking about driving tests, colleges, dances, etc. It is almost too much to handle.

Well, we are off to celebrate Halloween. Be safe out there!

Here is a little craft that I made a couple of weeks ago because I was tired of my same old Halloween decorations.

The first post

Well I finally bit the bullet and I am starting a blog. Not sure why I want a blog but after months of reading others thought I would give it a try.

I hopefully will be able to inspire others as others have inspired me!

I will say this I have tried 3 times now to post this and for some reason every time I save it I can't figure out how to get it from there to my blog. So needless to say this will definitely be an adventure for me!

For those of you that do not know me I am a Mom and Wife and I get to work for an amazing company by the name of meandmyBIGideas. We are a sticker manufacturer in the scrapbook industry. I am Director of Education. I love my job and all the wonderful people I work with as well have met through this job!

I am hoping that I can spot what I do at mambi as well as at home. We will just have to see.

My family and I live in Trabuco Canyon and unfortunately this last week was a very trying week in that we were very close to the fires that practically took over California. I know kinda of an exaggeration but really....

A shout out to all of our brave and fearless firefighters! Those firefighters ROCK! My brother Chuck being one of them. They go out and fight these fires and get no sleep for days. Unbelieveable! Thank You just doesn't seem big enough. Speaking of does anyone know where we can donate clothes for the fire victims?? If so leave me a comment.

I will leave you with a picture of what we were looking at last week from our front yard.

Crazy isn't it??!!!
Okay all of you go out and do a good deed for someone! See how it will make your heart SOAR!
