Mission Complete!

FINALLY, the shed is 100% done!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now...to just finish the 10 other projects we've started around the house....

Donkey Basketball? Believe it!

That's right folks...donkey basketball is exactly what it sounds like. Saturday night Scott got to find out first hand what it is like to play basketball with a donkey. I don't think it is something he hopes to repeat either. HaHaHa...
Andrews High School (where Scott teaches) helped host the event. Competitors, other than donkeys, were teachers, firefighters, policemen, and sheriffs. The crowd was small but all seemed to enjoy themselves!
Here Scott is trying to sweet talk his stubborn donkey into going in the direction he wants it to go. He was fairly good at this part...however, his four legged teammate would not agree to carry him anywhere and players were not allowed to shoot for the basket unless on the back of these mini beasts. Needless to say, Scott made a lot of excellent passes however his team went scoreless in both games he was in.Scott quickly realized this tactic below was totally worthless. The harder everyone pulled on their donkeys the more stubborn the animal became, I must say though - it was quite an experience to witness the event.
Here is a 4.5 minute video of the first game Scott was in. It's quite interesting and hilarious at the same time. There is no traveling, no fouls, no nothing but the rule mentioned above in donkey basketball. Enjoy! I did!!!

Halloween!!!

Only the cutest Buzz Lightyear and Clemson football player I've ever seen!!! You may form your own opinions :)

Elon Homecoming!!!

Oct. 23-25 was Elon Homecoming weekend...wow 5 years has really flown by! It was a rainy, horrible weather day but we all managed to keep smiles on our faces and enjoy ourselves!

Loved hanging out with old friends - photo below is of some of the West End 404 crew!!! We might not have all lived in the same apartment but I think we would all agree that we lived together. Elon defeated Chattanooga something awful and unlike in my day.."That's another ELON ---FIRST DOWN Phoenix!" was heard quite often!!!Rory brought Dagny down for the weekend and I met her for the first time!!! Not like I haven't had the baby bug for a while now but it's definately in overdrive after spending time with this tiny angel!!! p.s. I made her the flower - isn't it too cute!!! (thanks Martha kits)

On Sunday, we managed to 'get one by' Towa and threw her a surprise baby shower in honor of her and her 'half-baked' baby boy, Bennett! While we thought we had spoiled the whole surprise the night before when she accidently caught a glimpse of the invite - I think she was still quite surprised :) Bennett is due to arrive around the end of March.
