Glenn's Highschool game against Aurora

We figure they'd lose this game.. which they did. 10-0... in fact stopped the time for the mercy rule. Same thing happened at their game last Wednesday... oh well...

Anyway - Glenn had a pretty good game and here is some video of it.

This one is of Glenn doing a free kick then he ends up carrying the ball. He kicked it a little too far in front of him and Aurora took it away. Hector knocked the ball with his foot then head. The ref's thought he got a hand ball so blew the whistle and called a PK on it. They ended up scoring the last goal then...

Here Glenn took the ball away from someone.

Scrawn - Rawn

This is Scrawny and Glennie - back in the good ole days!! Isn't he just the cutest baby ever?!? :)

My cat - Scrawny... she is old -15 yrs old. She is getting to be a very crotchety old lady - she has almost no teeth, walks with a limp, snores, whines etc... Well now she is starting to pee/poo on rugs in the house. Her litter box can be perfectly clean - but I guess not as clean as the old lady would like it. So she decides to use my bathroom rugs or a kitchen rug. Which now - have all been thrown away!!
Saturday we came home from Kaitlin's soccer game and running errands and there was a pile a poo on the kitchen rug. We are trying to find her to punish her but I needed to get dinner started so I start filling up the corn pot with water(yes - all we have is corn on the cob - I know I am weird!! It comes from my dad and my pepe..). I forgot the poo was there and stepped - barefoot - right into it!! EEEEEEeeeeeewwwwwww
So we find her, rub her nose near it, spank her nose tell her bad etc... and she stayed clear of us the rest of the night. So all is well... until this morning.. I see she pee'd on the bathroom rug. I yell at her and she hides. She comes out of hiding and goes outside and becomes this ever grateful cute sweet cat!! She started drinking from the stream... we have been trying to get a photo of her doing that numerous times but she always stops. I caught her being cute today. It almost makes up for the brat she's been!!

Another soccer game

Kaitlin had a game against Edge on Saturday. It was their first loss of the season - bummer! Here are some photos of the game.



Here is a clip from Kaitlin's game. It's a short one... I am trying out new things and need a larger memory card so I can shoot more video at the games... but it's something and it gives you a better feel for the games!! Watch closely - did Kaitlin knock her down?? =) Or did the girl trip?

Mmmm tasty

So I get sick and tired of cooking the same things over and over. I love to cook... but when I cook the same things.. I lose that passion for cooking - cuz it's just so boring.
I subscribe to an awesome magazine.. http://www.tasteofhome.com/simple-delicious-magazine/
I have been trying to pick through the magazines and come up with new dinner ideas. I made Garlic Ranch Chicken the other night and it was a hit... easy too!

Garlic Ranch Chicken

Boneless skinless chicken tenders
1/4 C. milk
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 C. flour
1 TBSP. ranch salad dressing mix (the powder)
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 TBSP. olive oil
1 TBSP. butter

Slightly flatten chicken; set aside. In a shallow bowl, combine milk and garlic. In another bowl, combine the flour, salad dressing mix and pepper. Dip chicken in the milk mixture then coat with flour mixture.
In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil and butter over medium high heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.

White Men Can Jump!

Whoever says white men can't jump needs to see this!! LOL

So that's what the boys do during half time... Glenn wants to shoot on dad. Dad blocked this shot - Goooo dad!! :)
This week was filled with soccer. I forgot my camera at Glenn's Thursday game (shame-shame)
They have 2 next week, so hopefully I won't forget. At the beginning of his game they sang the National Anthem and introduced their starters and what grade they were in. Glenn was a starter and he was the only starting Freshman out of both teams!! I thought that was pretty cool. They ended up losing 2-0 - big bummer.
Kaitlin had her 3rd game today against Pride Red. They won 3-0. Still looking good - looks to be a very promising season.
We called her Pumpkin all afternoon. Their home uniforms are orange tops and shorts.
"Hey look! There's a ball.. my ball...my ball..my ball...MINE"
The opposing coach was yelling at the referee to watch Kaitlin cuz he thought she was throwing elbows.. hmmm was he right??
