4th of July 2014

In keeping with my blog lameness of only really being able to post during the 4th of July.....ta-da...I present to you the 2014 edition of the Netz-Lafitte-Carrigan-Roberts edition of the 4th of July.
 
You can see from the last post that we were expecting a special guest star at this year's party.  After a couple months of scary-ness, hospital-ness, early arrival-ness, a little bit more hospital-ness we final welcome Kellyn to the gang. 
 
 




We gotta start the part off right with the tradition of decorate somebody with newspaper.  This year's creation was Benjamin Franklin.  P.S.  we had a couple of extra guests at the party.  Riley (cute blond girl sitting there front and center and Jake from State Farm sitting a little left).  Team 1 getting to work.
 Team 2 getting to work.  Please note Honey Buckets new hair do.  She looks naked! Please also note that she got to come out and play this year and that she was not in lock down.
 Team 2 chose to decorate Chase.  I won't tell you that they used a hundred dollar bill outta Busters wallet as the model (who carries a hundred dollar bill around in their wallet?!!?  Buster does....)
 Team 1 decorated Jake from State Farm.  Nice glasses!
 Team 1 finished product
 Team 2 finished product
 Our second challenge was a photo scavenger hunt.  And it was so dan#@ hot that I forgot to take pictures.  So you will just have to settle for a narration:  One team cheated!  Badly!  They drew pictures of almost everything on the list and took pictures of it.  That's just wrong!

 Then we ate!  Aaron and Yo Bob were our grill masters this year.  Watch out Aaron Jean.  Keep showing off those cooking skillz and we may crown you Aaron Jean BBQ Machine and have you cook for us every year!

For our final challenge: Zombie air-soft gun shoot out.  We did it college basket ball bracket style.  Here's a shot of the gallery........
 Tiff vs. Chaston
 Aaron vs. Buster
 Jake from State Farm vs. Lydon  (p.s. Lydon ended up winning his round by utilizing the "kill shot" side ways gun hold.  It was hilarious)
 Riley vs. Uncle Boyd
 Uncle Jill vs. Bren (Really Uncle Jill.....You got use your beauty pageant smile while competing?)
 Yo Bob analyzing the competition 
 To cap off the evening we made patriotic ice cream floats (as demonstrated by Aaron Jean)
 First you take some vanilla ice cream and add some blue soda.....
 and then some red soda.....
 and then you eat it!!


 Off to Grandpa Bob's to watch the fireworks.  But first a little football game.
 Lydon was our token big firework lighter this year.  The kids hunkered down waiting for the show.
 After everyone left, Aaron broke out his giant gummy bear that he bought himself in Nashville and gave it a test drive


 Poor giant gummy bear.  Looks like a chocolate Easter bunny who's had its ear eaten off.

Someone RSVP'ed to my 4th of July Party

 
Casuree has let it be known that she needs one extra ticket to the Netz-Lafitte-Carrigan-Roberts 2014 Fourth of July Party Extravaganza. 
 
Seems that she plans for a "special delivery" on the 4th of July.


If you need special help interpreting the pictures (because I did), there is special meaning behind Kambrie's BLUE handprints (It means she is going to have a baby brother!)

New Driver Alert!

How did this happen?!! 
 My sweet, first born nephew some how climbed behind the steering wheel of a car this week and  magically became old enough to drive.  What?  How?  When?
 

I cant believe it's true.  He should still be riding his scooter not driving Buster's car!

Thank you Brenn, for getting your learners permit so that Aunt Stacy has someone else that she can call when she needs someone to run over to the Julibee for some milk.  I'll be calling you.

It's Award Season!

Golden Globes, Grammies, Academy Awards oh my!
 
And now this knucklehead .......
 Went and won himself one of these!
I told Aaron if I was going to spend so much money buying him that fancy suit, he better win. 
Well I guess he showed me!!
 
I don't know if you can see that number there in the middle of that award (that is suitable for framing) but it says 1st place!! 
And for anyone who isn't familiar with the letters "FBLA", it stands for Future Business Leaders of America. 
Look our America---There's a Future Business Leader in town wearing a shiny gold award necklace around his neck, packing a 1st place certificate who's going to do some 1st place public service announcing with his super proud momma chasing behind him snapping pictures for the blog.

Aaron Jean Homecoming King!

Yes, the rumors are true---Aaron Jean Lafitte just may be too good to be true! 

Just when you think he is done being amazing, he goes and pulls this little stunt........

Aaron Jean Homecoming King 2013
 
Forgive me if I gush but this kid was a CHAMP during Homecoming Week. 
I hope you are able to hear everything the announcer says as Aaron is walking off the track

And I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge every kid that rallied around Aaron, made sure that he OK and that participated in his well deserved King-ship.  If it weren't for those kids, Aaron would have missed out on the whole experience.  I don't know how we will ever be able to thanks those kids for being there for him.

And if I could pick a Miss Congeniality, it would be Aaron's date, Molly.  She could have bailed on the whole situation but that sweet girl stuck in there and they ended up having a great time.  Molly: consider yourself crowned, sashed and a handed a dozen roses for being such an amazing, graceful young woman during that awkward, difficult weekend.


And thank you to Aaron's date crew.  We had to throw together the dinner date but I think considering the circumstances, we managed to pull it off!
