First up was Florida vs Mizzou! Started out as a chilly morning but turned into a beautiful day as we watched the Gators fall at the Zou. This was the boys first college football game so we grabbed a few passes to a tailgate before heading in. We sat on the Hill, for the game we were very happy with our seats.
Our oldest was trying to figure out how the game worked. It is not an easy game to explain to a 5 year old besides "don't let the ball hit the ground"

So here are a few other moments in history made:
1) Undefeated, I believe it was 31 games at this point (they went on to finish the year 35-1) The last game they played was their only loss for the season.
2) First SEC Championship won for the school (we have only been apart of the SEC for 2 years)
That following Monday Nov 25 we ended up winning tickets to the Men's basketball game (how did I go 10 years going to only 1 sporting event and then in a month hit 3 (husband went to 2 more) and it would have been 4 if we did get the stomach bug on Halloween.
Last up was Mizzou Football Senior Night! I didn't get to go to this game but my husband did. It was perfect timing since it was cold out a babysitter was needed for the children so we volunteered. Well it was "we" until we were told an extra ticket was available to sit with the Franklin's. It was a bit of a whirlwind day because my parents were still in from Thanksgiving and helping to complete some unfinished projects. As soon as we got the call they were on the way to drop the kids off my parents left and Mark was getting ready to head out as well.
