J-5 Rogers Family



I'm bummed the weekend is over. Mondays are such a drag. It seems like everybody is off from work/school today except for my family. Jaydon was off from school on the 3rd & 6th of this month, and Jeremy hardly gets any days off.

We had a double header on Saturday, and surprisingly, the kids did okay. We had a slight intermission while we waited for the 2nd team to arrive, (they were from the Boat Club YMCA, and all got stuck in traffic) but it all worked out well. During the intermission, we had story time so that the kids would stay seated and focused. It worked for a little while. The kids are cute when they are trying to come up with stories. Some told better stories than others; some didn't want to tell a story at all. It's amazing the different personalities that they have. Jaydon told "The Three Bears" and he used all of the "voices" that I use when I tell it. It was funny to listen to them, and I wish that I could have videotaped it!!

We spent the rest of Saturday at home, not doing much. We watched the Texas Tech game. WOW - what a scary ending! They pulled it off in OT with a 37-31 victory over Nebraska, but that's too close in my opinion. It just goes to show that most of these Division I schools are good enough to play each other. They are still ranked #7 in the polls which is AWESOME for them! (My Trinity Trojans also won on Friday night.)
The Texas/OU game was a good game to watch - even though we wanted OU to win. I CANNOT believe that they ranked Texas as #1 now. Those BCS polls are all a matter of opinion! I wish they would do it like the NFL - REAL playoffs and such.
After the Tech game, we went to Sam's. We bought formula, diapers, Jell-O, yogurt, and corn dogs. Too exciting, isn't it?

Jaydon decided that night that on Sunday, we would go to Pizza Garden for lunch, then go eat ice cream after that, (Jaydon does NOT like ice cream-funny story there) then go get Jacoby's haircut, then go to the park & play tennis, then go to Wal-Mart. Sounds like a good day to me, kiddo! Such a planner...
So on Sunday, Jeremy went to play golf. He left at 6:30 AM, and got home right at noon. I had the boys ready when he got there, and we went to Pizza Garden for lunch. All of us ate for $13 - sweet! Jaydon ate 5 slices (yes, 5!) of SPINACH pizza. He thought it was cheese. The spinach was hidden under the layers of cheese, and he didn't even taste it. Jeremy and I were just waiting for him to complain, but he never realized it. Then after that, we went to get ice cream at Sheridan's. They open at 1:00 on Sunday, so it worked out perfectly. We were their first customers that day. Jaydon wanted one scoop of "veRnilla" (so cute how he says it!) and he said that I had to get 1 scoop of chocolate and so did Daddy. So he ordered for us, and when he got his ice cream cone, he hands it to me. Yep - I knew that was happening! I MADE him lick it, and he about puked. He gagged, pretended to choke, and handed it back. This is the child who doesn't eat yogurt, Jell-O, applesauce, cake or popsicles either. What child doesn't like a scoop of ice cream? ARGH! We did get a VERY nice compliment for a lady there. She arrived right after we did with her 2 granddaughters. Jaydon walked over to me and I hear her say to her oldest granddaughter, "Wow, what a good-looking little boy." Then she comes over to me and says, "He is SO handsome. He is going to be a lady killer when he grows up." I thanked her then turned around to look at Jaydon and he DID look really handsome on Sunday in an all white shirt. It looked so good on his tan skin. So I decided that I need to get him a new white shirt for school pictures on Tuesday! :)

So after that, Jacoby was restless, so we had to go home. Jaydon & Jeremy went to the park and played tennis for a whole hour. Jeremy says that Jaydon is getting so good - they can actually go back & forth over the net a few times now. Jaydon does SO well at individual sports like golf & tennis.
So the goal after that was to get Jacoby his 1st hair cut. Well, that didn't happen. You see, that morning, Jacoby was crawling around the house and he decided to try and stand ON the window sill. Yes, on TOP of it! He had one leg on it...well, he obviously didn't make it up there since he's only 28inches long, but his eye sure found the corner of the ledge. He has a nice goose egg on the corner. Poor baby! What's sad is that I was watching the ENTIRE thing and just couldn't get there in time to stop it. I feel badly for him because he is in a play pen or exersaucer at my Mom's pretty much all day long, so during the weekend, I like to give him free rein of the house. We have put away all of the breakables, and child covered all of the plugs, so we thought we were safe. Lesson learned, huh? Since Jaydon never crawled, this is all new to us!
Okay - so I didn't want to have his first haircut picture with that mess on his eye, so we'll save that for next weekend. He is in DESPERATE need of a haircut. Then we went to Wal-Mart, came home, and called it a night.
My Dolphins lost in the last seconds of the game to the stupid Texans. That was my only football loss this weekend. :(

Oh - after the Cowboys game yesterday, Jaydon says, "Dad, I think that blue team needs a little more practice." LOL! It was TOO funny! That little stinker...it IS the truth though!

That's enough writing from me...

Have a good week!
