Last weekend we had a jam packed football weekend! Mississippi State was set to play Auburn at home and we were excited despite the 11:00 AM kickoff because our friends the Bairds were coming in town.  Elle looks forward to the game that Lizzie comes the most so she was pumped! Memphis was on fall break so they were able to get into town early afternoon and just as Elle was getting home from school.

Friday night we lined up a babysitter because Kenny's fraternity was having a ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly renovated fraternity house. We weren't sure if we were going to go but Jay had a huge part in planning the event so we needed to go as a sign of support in the very least.  The Bairds were happy to come with us despite Wilson being a Kappa Alpha. The party turned out to be a lot of fun.  Lots of Kenny's fraternity brothers came in town and it was a big reunion.  It was fun seeing everyone!

The babysitter sent us this cute picture as she was putting the girls to bed!

The next morning we woke up bright and early. We planned a very casual breakfast tailgate.  Zo came to keep Walker and we got to the tailgate around 9 to have mimosas, bloody mary's, cinnamon rolls, biscuits and chicken minis.  The weather was wonderful and Elle and Lizzie and all of her friends had a great time playing.

We went in to the game and unfortunately the bulldogs did not play well at all.  This is just not a good season for us.  But we are trying our best to stick by them!  We stayed until the beginning of the fourth quarter despite getting our honeys whooped.  After we left the game we came back to the tailgate for a while and hung out because the weather was so nice.  That night we all cooked out.  We cooked the fish Kenny brought home from a fishing trip he had gone on with an account.  It was really good but I started to feel really bad that night.  I did not think too much of it because I normally feel bad tailgating from being out in the grass.

to this from two years before when they were smaller.

Ann Carlton, Mary Kenway, Elle and the Edwards stopped by so Miriam too!
These two have become sweet friends lately.

Sunday morning I woke up and felt terrible.  Elle had a bad cough that she couldn't get rid of so I loaded us up and went to the Urgent Care. I had strep and Elle had pneumonia.  Yikes!  So we came home to see Lizzie and the Bairds off and then got into bed to try and recover.  I am writing this post a week later and Elle is much better and I am still trying to kick it!  The price I pay for a fun vacation recently and a fun football weekend with our friends!
