Ladies and Gentlemen...I present the McKeon kids!

Max Truman and his Sunbeam class doing the Hula. Dad couldn't figure out the camera until it was almost over. If you want to see the entire version we'd be happy to show you. Come on over!

Gracie and her CTR 7 class. At the end of this Grace is victorious! She ate the whole thing off the floor. Sacrifices to win...germs!

video
Jack Jr. and his Valiant 10 class. The boy has rhythm! This is a great song done by a group called InsideOut A capella. Really great sound doing church songs!

Gracie and her friends Emma and Chloe. Looks like we have dancer!

Emily was the MC of the evening. I'd have to say it was a very enjoyable evening. We had dancers, singers, gymnasts, guitar and piano soloists, and comedians. The Primary kids of the Newhall 2nd ward are amazing!

Please VOTE!!!!

What a sight! Prop 8 Rally! It was truly amazing. Our stake has organized rallies for this week on busy street corners throughout our valley. We had about 300 members and friends join in to hold signs in support of Prop 8.

My Mom and I tonight. She was very reluctant until she heard the honks in support. Now she has committed to hold a sign with me tomorrow! Go Mom!
Uncle Buck McKeon, our Congressman, showing his support came out to hold a sign with us Monday evening with Aunt Patricia.
Our friends the Seegmillers. If the vote was up to our valley we'd win, but it will take more than us...so wherever you are in California, Vote YES!
Me on the corner smiling and waving! I can't talk so this is my way of helping spread the word! I went door to door with Jack and he did all the talking. Again I smiled and waved!
On behalf of me and my family, I ask you to go VOTE!! Make your voice heard. We need to head the Prophets counsel and restore traditional marriage as the California standard!
VOTE YES ON PROP 8!

The last 2 weeks!

We were lucky enough to have Abby come stay with us for the weekend!! She is an amazing girl with a happy personality. She is loved by all, especially Maddie. It was a very wonderful surprise.
Everyone was happy to have Abby here...look how close they are sitting together.
Maddie and Abby did some serious partying! or should I say snoring!!! Party girls! Good thing they have each other!
Jack Jr lost his footing walking to school last week and landed square on his leg. He had to have 10 stitches which sat him for last week's football game. I'm not sure who was the most upset. Jack Jr or Jack SR.? You guess! The stitches came out today so we are goo to go tomorrow!
Last week Debbie and Cindy Crockett joined Maddie and I to go see a taping of Dancing with the Stars. We waited a long time, but ti was so fun. The stage is much smaller than it looks! So fun!
It has been a fun time the last 2 weeks, even though I still cannot talk...it has been 2 months. I have nodules on my vocal chords. So frustrating since everyone knows how I love to talk! Another "What do I need to learn from this?" This time I'm sure you guess right... "Sammy be quiet!" My third grade teacher Ms. King is probably jumping up and down in heaven...Yahoo, she is finally quiet!!

Last day of nasty medicine!!

Emily has had to take this nasty medicine called Nystatin since the transplant. It tastes so disgusting! I know because I have tried it :)
She had to put 10 cc in her mouth swish and swallow! UGH!!!
We had our last dose and boy was it a relief for her (and me). No more nightly battles to get her to take it! One more thing to bring her back to normal!

All Done! Thank Heavens! Literally!

Who would ever think by looking at that face that she has been through a nightmare the last almost 2 years. What a blessing!

Go Wildcats!

Jr is number 62. Look to the right side and you see him a make a great tackle. In the second video you see Jr. coming off the field after a fumble recovery!
Great game in the rain...Wildcats 14 - Simi Green 0! Go cats!
They are 5 and 0!

I finally figured out how to do the video from my camera to the blog!! Yahoo!

Opening Day!

BIG WIN for the Wildcats! Jack Jr.'s team beat Simi Green 22-0. Jack Sr. 's defense held strong and the victory was sweet. Jack Jr. 's #64 jersey did not come in , so he is #62 this game. He had a strong game with a huge hit. The ref came over to the side lines and told the coaches "great hit by 62, but he stood over him after the hit, that's taunting, watch that". We watched the play on film and YES it was taunting...he's a McKeon what do you expect! We took a knee at the end of the game to not score the extra points. If you go up 24 points you have to write a letter of explanation to the league as to why you beat the other team so badly. They say that was the gentleman's thing to...What? Football is not a gentleman's sport, go play golf!

We got to hold Opening day at COC, our home college field. So exciting.
Jack Sr. pointing directions!
The cheerleaders did a fantastic job. Maddie and her friend, Cindy are the coaches. I have been very impressed with their leadership.
It was 102 degrees and even hotter on the field. Miss Grace has a very funny sunburn :) Happy to see this smile, it faded as the day went on.

Gracie is the cute one on the end in this picture.
Jack Sr. very into it! I have to remind him that he has to stay off the field. He gets so excited that he crosses the coaches line.

Football!

The season begins...
Opening day tomorrow at COC! Hoooooya!
Jack Jr has come out twice tonight because he is nervous. He has a stomach ache and a headache, now he is coughing. Or is it clearing his throat? Whatever it is the poor guy has major anxiety! He will not start at center tomorrow, but he is starting on the "D" Line. Love how I know the terms? The countdown begins...game time noon!



We did a very fun thing last week. Jack and Jack Jr. were sitting down to work on their fantasy football strategies. I asked what they were doing and the next thing I know our whole family is playing fantasy football. We had a draft in which each team ( we all have a team in the Braggin' Rights League) chose their players. I got very lucky and nabbed LT (for those non-footballers) LaDanian Thomlinson (sp?) as my first pick. He is ranked as one of the best right now! Yea Grace and Sammy, the Pink Panthers! Jack has 3 of his brothers playing plus our family, that is 8 teams. I got totally into it. I studied the Sports Illustrated and took notes. Yes, I got made fun of, but I wanted to be successful! So we will see who actually wins, me me me me me me! Maybe?!

Football!
