Are you ready for some football?

Fall is my favorite season for several reasons. In addition to cooler temperatures and the vibrant colors of fall foliage, I also enjoy keeping up with my favorite football teams. As a matter of fact, everyone in the family enjoys a good game of football except the cats. When the cheering starts, the cats run for cover!

We had a great football weekend--all of our favorite teams won! On Friday night, our hometown high school team, the Freeport Bulldogs, defeated their opponent by a score of 27-13. I was preparing for a craft show on Saturday so I didn't attend the game. However, my husband and our older son went and had a great time!

Saturday is college football day! I arrived home from my craft show in time to see most of the second half of the game between the Auburn Tigers (my college alma mater) and the Arkansas Razorbacks. And what a second half it was! My tigers took advantage of multiple turnovers and successfully converted them into touchdowns, defeating Arkansas 65 to 43! War Eagle!

Our football weekend concluded with the Miami Dolphins facing off against the Green Bay Packers. The score was tied at the end of regulation play 20-20. The Dolphins came away with the win in overtime by kicking a 44-yard field goal for a final score of 23-20!

Noce blog post. Love it Vicki! I went to check out the mail box and saw they have a chicken one. But before I buy a mailbox I need to buy an engine.

I was just about to share this on Facebook, Twitter and Stumble, out of habit, and I see you do not have the share tools on your blog. : (
