Weekend Update: BOB, birthday parties, and good football games

Our weekend was jammed packed full of fun and activities. Friday night we all went to B.O.B., which stands for Battle of the Buildings. Our four elementaries, two intermediates, the middle school and the high school all battled it out for the right to fly the B.O.B. banner.

Our little elementary had quite the turn out and I'm not sure my hearing has returned to normal. My son was beside himself with excitement because his teacher as one of the participates. Maybe next year I'll represent the cafeteria....

This is a picture of our principal running in the plunger/volleyball leg of the contest. That takes some serious concentration.

Our team color was purple and some of the teachers had this iron on on the back of their shirts, which I thought was quite clever and had to take a picture of it. Sadly, we didn't win, but we came in a strong second. The high school won again, which is quite the rip off. For three reasons, they have an entire P.E. department and we have a gym teacher, they have home field advantage as the event is held at the high school, and no one from the high school comes to the event as they don't really care what there teachers are doing...

Next year...we're taking them!

My son's party was a hit and the kids were all very good and not too loud. I think I kept them moving and busy the entire time so they really didn't have a chance to get out of line.

Out of the 12 we invited 9 showed up which I thought was pretty darn good.

Here is little G with his cake. It is the same picture I used for his invitations. I ordered it from Ebay and was very happy with how it turned out. Very easy to do and you can get just about any design that you want.

Hubby's parents stayed the night and on Sunday we went to church and then out to eat at a restaurant showing the Steelers game. Yep, that's right. Even though I live in Pennsylvania I'm tortured with Baltimore Raven games all the time.
The good news...Pittsburgh won and Baltimore didn't. Doesn't get much better than that.

That BOB event looks like it would be so much fun. I really like those shirts too, such a neat idea. Sorry y'all didn't win :(

I am glad that his birthday party went so well. The cake is super cute, I had no idea you could do something like that.
