I Love that my Nephews are playing (American) Football!

First football games of the season today! I'm a proud Auntie, my nephews played hard! 

I was so excited that their games were at my old High School, Santana. It was kind of surreal for me after not being back there in 12 years (I feel old, lol). They redid the football field and it is amazing! It used to be dead grass surrounded by dirt back in my day!
My nephew Reese. I am so proud of him! He has always been stocky and a little bigger than most of friends. He had to work extra hard the last three weeks and lose 11 pounds to be able to play tackle football, and he did it! At his weigh in this morning the weight limit is 97 pounds with all his gear on, he weighed in at 96.2! 

My little Joey. We have always had a very close relationship, I'm so proud of him too, he's a great football player!!
During Joey's game, he's the kid sitting right at the 40 yard line.

I love his facial expressions!

Me and my boy (he says I'm his favorite Auntie, awwww).

My oldest nephew Wyatt! Can't believe he's turning 11 in a couple weeks and starting 6th grade, he's playing Soccer this year, so here soon I'll have soccer pictures!

And the Princess, Jillian. The youngest with three older brothers :)

So, that's all I have for you this time. Just me being a proud Auntie. . . it really is one of my biggest joys in my life, I love these kids so so so so much!

Oh, my Aunt came home from the hospital today, yay!  She's still having to go through a long road of healing, but at least she's home. 

No incoming/outgoing to share. Hoping next week to reply to the one letter I have waiting. . . which brings me to this, if anyone is looking for more penpals, I am too, so drop me an email! :)

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!



  1. Looks like a really fun day!! I am glad your aunt is doing better.

    1. It was a fun day. . . until the sun came out toward the end of Reese's game, and silly me, I wore long sleeves because it was overcast and drizzly when I left the house at 7:30am, whoops, lol. My Aunt is getting better, right now she still has the wound vac in, she's getting her first visit from a home health nurse today :)
