Debel the Devils

     Yes, that is our homecoming slogan for 2011.  Supposedly it means "to conquer in war", but I have my doubts that it's even a real word.  Leave it to those clever high schoolers to come up with something no one else understands.  Today the kids all got out of school early for the homecoming parade and football game tonight.  They were all decked out in their red and black to support our Trojans.  Parker was especially excited because I bought him a tshirt this year just like Jackson and Mia.  He was very proud to wear it to his school today.  We went to the parade this afternoon and met up with lots of friends.  Mom and the cousins met us there and Jeremy got off of work a little early to join us.  All the kids were excited about the parade because that only means one thing to them. . . Candy.  They caught tons of it.  Parker was a little hesitant at first, but he got the hang of it pretty quickly.  At first he would look at whatever he picked up, and if he didn't like that particular kind he would throw it back down.  I had to explain to him to just get whatever he could, and we would look through it at home.  Once he realized that, he was right in there with all the big kids.  Jackson's friend Max rode with us to the parade, and then we met up with their other buddy Dawson.  This is the first year in a long time that we haven't ridden in the parade, but neither of the kids is playing a sport this time around, so we got to watch it all as it passed by.  Jackson and Mia saw lots of their friends from school on the floats, which worked to their advantage candy wise.  We skipped the game tonight because the kids played outside all afternoon, and we ended up hanging out at mom's for supper.  We are all exhasuted, but it was a fun day.
