You don't have to bow!
I mean, you can if you want to but really, you don't have to.
Just bring cupcakes.

Thank you to Mrs. 4444 for naming me QUEEN FOR THE DAY.
Oh wait, she didn't.
But she did award me with her world famous "Favorite Friday Fragmenter" award.
Okay, even that's kind of a lie.
What won the award was a conversation with Garrett.
Without Garrett there would be no hilarity in our house.
There would also not be a pile of small appliances, clothing, school supplies and ties at the bottom of the stairs.
Pack it up and get to college already!

Anyway.......thank you Mrs. 4444s!
Go on over to Half Past Kissin' Time and you can play along.
You might even get the award next week.
Let's do this thing!

* Wow!  I am so relieved that Kanye West is making a come back <- does that sound sarcastic at all?
After his classy mic take over from Taylor Swift at the Grammy's/MTV Music award/wherever that was, I lost ALL respect for him. Not that he hadn't already lost my respect because of his trashy lyrics. 
But I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to Fridays, now that he has announced that he will "drop" a single every Friday from September to December.
So I guess this is my last Frag because I'll be busy listening to Kanye.

* Garrett says he is ready for school and totally ready to move into his apartment:
"I have a popcorn maker, rice cooker and a hot chocolate maker.  What else could I possibly need?"
Oh my!

* It's a big, big day at the Crazy Cox household!
Someone is having a birthday!

Since he already received the fountain pen he wanted and the aforementioned appliances, it's not going to be a very exciting birthday.  We'll go to dinner.  But we have to go early. 

* Tonight is the the first football game of the season.
It's a huge night for Tiny Baby.
No.  He's not the quarterback.  He's more important that the quarterback.
We have a long standing tradition in this family - and Parker is continuing it!

You can't have a football game without the flag boys!!!!  They are essential to the game!
And the real reason to be a Flag Boy?
Girls! Yes girls!  Unlimited front row access to all the poms and cheers.
These boys aren't dumb....but they COULD work on their kicks!

You can see that MY weekend is going to be fun-filled and exciting!
I hope your's is too!

Congrat's on being Queen!

I had a roommate in college who survived on only rice. She didn't even have popcorn or hot chocolate to balance out her diet, so I'm sure Garrett will be just fine!

Bonehead Brothers: College Edition

That would sell...just saying...:)

Why else would a boy twirl a flag?? Actually why else would a girl be a cheerleader? Boys of course!!!

Happy Weekend!

As a former Cheerleading Captain and always and forever lover of the Fall season... I enjoyed this FF entry because of the nostalgia it brought as I looked at the pics! It seems sooo long ago!

I also am not a fan of Kayne West :)
