Ford Field Fun

Well, the Rams didn't win the State Championship, but they made it to the Championship game, which is still incredible! They lost 38-16 to Macomb Dakota, an extremely remarkable and impressive team. Brogan did AWESOME! We, the "Bibler Fan" section heard his name several times over the loud speaker and couldn't have been louder cheering each time! He still has two High School football seasons left to come back to Ford Field! Above are some of Brogan playing on Ford Field, one of our sister-in-law Tracy and niece (under the orange T-Shirt) Gracelyn, one of 4 out of 5 of Brogan's brothers (from the left) Matt, Peter, Blake and Austin (we know you would have been there if you could have, Mike!), one of Austin and his best friend (and HUGE Brogan fan) Tim, and some more fun pics. We now get to leave football behind us and move on to Basketball!! Great season, Brogan! We were highly impressed with your improvement and skill at each and every game! GO RAMS!!

Fun Day with Maddie

I got to spend Friday with Maddie...thanks to the warm weather and Tom wanting to go golfing and the huge sales for Lauren to shop! Maddie and I (along w/ Grandma H.) went out to lunch at Sam's Joint (our regular, the Corner Bar, was PACKED!), and Maddie helped me pick out what Rockford shirt to wear (to Ford Field) at Pegasus. We also got visitors...Grandma Hosford and Uncle Austin. Here are some pics of our fun day, and of Uncle Austin reading to Maddie and me making "toot" noises on her tummy !!

We're "Dome"ward Bound!!!

WOO HOO!! Rockford beat Canton 30-0 in the semi-finals today, and are now on their way to Ford Field!! Brogan had some AWESOME hits today, starting the game with a blast to a Canton player (who is probably in a lot of pain as I speak!)! I could not possibly be a prouder sister, (except of course for a second State Championship next week)...and he's only a SOPHOMORE!! Brogan's a freakin' stud...plain and simple. :) Here are some picks of the Bibler crew at the chilly game today at Lansing Everett. Look for more football pics this time next week after we travel east to the game (which FYI is next Saturday at 1p.m.)!! GO RAMS!!!!!

God Bless, Grandma...

Today was a very sad day, as well as a day of relief. Grandma Hosford went to her eternal home this morning after a very intense week, and she is now freed from her pain. Grandma will be missed more than words can say, and she was by far the strongest, most amazing woman I know. I can only hope that my children and grandchildren have half the love and respect for me that I have for her. I am comforted by the fact that I know Grandma will look down on myself, Austin and our family for the rest of our lives. I'll see you again someday, Gram. God Bless.

Halloween 2006

Here's Maddie and Uncle Austin, Maddie Trick or Treating at "Grandma" Bibler's House, Jonah Carlson (the absolute most handsome, adorable lion to walk this Earth!), and Maddie and her Daddy sharing a Halloween smooch!
