Are you ready for some football?

It's that time of year...the air is crisp, it's getting dark earlier, the leaves are starting to change, and the level of testosterone at our house is increasing. Yep, it's time for football. It's a strange phenomenon in our house. On Sundays, my quiet, introspective, sweet husband transforms into this crazy person who yells, jumps up and down, and even grunts from time to time. I generally try to plan other activities during this transformation because, heck, even the poor dog gets scared! What is it about football? I have always hated football. HATED it. But, I have slowly developed a tolerance for it over the past couple of years and have started to develop a slight interest. And, as you can see from the pics, I think I will be in the minority at my house. So, I might as well join em, eh?

My boys watching the game!
Already cheering?
Eli has quite a throwing arm, though he usually throws with his left.
Yep, Ben Roethlisberger is from our town. Though, Jason is very quick to remind people that he was raised in Pennsylvania and has ALWAYS been a Steelers fan. ;)
Football may have started, but it's still baseball season!

I was raised in a house of boys, too. I've never developed a love for games - but I must say I enjoy the "sounds" of the men cheering. Austin and Logan have jumped right in watching football on the "beast!"

Eli is so stinkin' cute. And I thought about you guys being "exactly where we were last year" when I was writing my post. I'm SO happy for you all! I sure hope our paths cross in real live one day (soon!). It looks like Eli, Mr. One Year Younger will be about the same size if not bigger than my little fellas! I think Daddy may have himself a football player!

SOunds like football days are Mom's day out! Don't fall for it, stay uninterested.

Though, Eli does look awfully cute in that little football jersey.
