Costume Tease

I have finally gotten a chance to sew Maddie's dress today.  The structure is complete, however there is one major thing I have left to do to it, but can't without revealing the actual costume.  Think you know what it is now?

Storm Update 

Today the Rookie Storm returned back in the winner column.  Zack played SO well!!  He ended up playing almost the entire game.  He played the following positions: Defense End, Running Back and Offensive Tight End.  Yes, you read that correctly....he was on the LINE!!  He did great!  He had to go up against boys WAY bigger than him (twice his weight) and he held his own.  He had one play where he blocked for the QB who ran it in for a TD.  They won against the Pirates 18-6.

Maddie did a fantastic job at cheering today.  The girls performed their halftime dance for the first time today.  They were great!!!

Tough Loss

So, this past weekend Storm received their first loss in three seasons.  It was a very close game.  Both teams traded touchdown after touchdown.  Unfortunately, storm missed their extra point after a touchdown two times. They were down by two with two minutes left. They were able to drive the ball down the field and had 2.4 seconds left on the 17 yard line. They threw the ball into the end zone, but unfortunately did not catch the ball. I think if these two teams played again, then Storm could come out on top. They were to evenly matched teams.  Here is a picture of Maddie giving Zach a hug after the game.

It's Starting

Well, I have to give a HUGE shout out to my dad for letting me borrow a table saw for the next 1-3 months while I work on Christmas gifts.  Today when I had a "free", and when I say free I just mean "kid free" hour, I pulled the saw out and started cutting some scrap wood I had at the house.  Unfortunately, by the time I got the saw dragged out, found an extension cord and all the measuring tools, I was only able to cut 4 boards before time to hit the school pick up line.  I'm happy to report I have all my fingers intact....that was a joke by the way.  I'm so excite to start on tons of projects!!!!

Storm Update

I just realized that I have not posted about Maddie and Zack's football team, Storm.  2 Saturdays they played the best team from Troutman and won 33-7.  Zack played mostly offense at tight end.  Maddie, did great at cheering.

This Saturday, Storm played the other team in the Mooresville league, Lightning.  It was a TOUGH game and VERY evenly matched.  Storm squeaked by 12-6.  Again Zack played Tight End and Maddie did great in cheer!  They are officially 4-0.

Death Warmed Over

Well the Nowell household has not been a fun location this week.  Sunday morning, Zack woke up with the stomach bug.  Mike was out of town and I was VERY grateful that my mom was at my house, because I had to sing a solo at church.  There was no way I could have brought Zack with me.  So she graciously offered to stay at home with him.  Then Monday night around 9pm, poor Maddie came down with the nasty mess.  Then around 11pm, it hit me.  Then around 1am it hit Mike.  We were all so pitiful!!  Since I am the mom, I still had to somehow roll out of bed and change sheets, get Zack to school and try and get better so I could sing at a banquet last night.  Today's tasks are to Clorox and Lysol EVERYTHING!!!!!!
