It’s a little hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that my BABIES are now old enough to play tackle football. I was feeling a little sullen as we were heading to get their equipment yesterday, but once we got home and had them suited up, my excitement began to grow. FOOTBALL!! I *love* football! Speaking of equipment, omg, I have to get them both in full pads and helmets at least THREE times each week. Shit. Just getting the helmets on and off their heads is enough to send me to the crazy house.

Anyway, it has been my husband’s dream to coach his kids at football. It is hardly possible with his work schedule, which consists of him being out-of-town for weeks at a time. When we heard one of our good friends was going to be helping to coach the boys’ team, I told Jdogg he should just go to the coach’s meeting and help out when he is home. I’m pretty sure he is more excited than the twins are.

My camera has been collecting dust for most of this year {why?}, but I quick charged the battery and managed to get a few decent shots in. Keep in mind, I was passing the football to the boys, so ignore the blur, k? ;p

And for shits and giggles, a video of their “first practice” at home in full uniform. What could be better than having a twin brother to practice with? We’ve got offense AND defense covered. ;) Warning: Obnoxious mom-voice in the background. That’s just me.

    Although I have to tell you as Brody and I were sitting here watching it and you said “you got a point, 2 points” Brody proudly piped up with… “MOOOOOMMMMMM a touch down is for 6 pts,” :)

    I can’t wait for my lil guy to be in tackle football :) PS remind me I said this when I am sobbing because he wants to play… :)
