Do you remember back in May when Mitchell partnered Lucy for the Deb Presentation (see post here)?
At the time, Lucy's mum, Lisa, was taking part in a Channel 7 show called Bringing Sexy Back. Lisa's aim was to look great for Lucy's big night. She lost 40kg and had a makeover. She looked fabulous.
Last night Lisa's episode was on and finished with the big reveal (you can see the show here). Right near the end of the show, they go to the ball and show Lucy dancing with her mother. Can you see who is in the background?
This was awarded for all the work Noel does behind the scenes over the years since we joined Yarrambat when Mitchell played Under 10's. He is always happy to help whenever needed. He sets up and packs up for functions and is on the Committee. He has been Game Day Manger, team manager, water boy, boundary umpire, goal umpire, umpire escort, helps at the BBQ's and
where ever else he is needed.
I only found out half an hour before as I was leaving to take Nelson to basketball. They wanted me there so after a quick phone call, I was able to organise for him to go with a team mate. I raced back to Diamond Creek, dropped him off
Last night was the Yarrambat Junior Football Club's
Under 17's Brownlow Night.
This is where the count is done for the Best and Fairest.
We decorated the room which looked lovely.
The table centre pieces were old footy boots sprayed gold.
We also has a Lolly Buffet for at the end of the night.
There was even a red carpet to walk down!
The count started and Austin got 5 votes and 4 votes
(2 different voters) for Round 1.
So at the end of Round 1 he was leader!
The coaches spoke about each player. First up a baby photo would be shown. Everyone would try to guess who it was and then their official footy photo came up. The boys were also presented with their playing jumpers to keep.
One of the Vice Presidents, Dave, interviewed different players just like at the AFL Brownlow.
(Can you see Noel in the background?
Austin placed 5th at the end of the night. Not bad for a full back player. He did an amazing job this season stopping a lot of goals by the opposition.
This is Austin's friend from school, Izzy, who came with him to the night. It was a Dress to Impress night and the boys all scrubbed up well. The girls all looked gorgeous too.
Today we are heading back to the club for Presentation Day.
Another year over at Yarrambat Junior Football Club.
Mitchell finished his last home and away round today
and won. They are now in finals next week.
So we're not quite finished with footy yet!
My stitches aren't very small but I've been able to keep them reasonably even. Probably by the time I get to the end I'll be doing tiny stitches.
I managed to get the centre block and four of the melons done. I also started the second ring and got the centre done (it's a bit hard to see).
I stitched one and a half Block 14 of my Quilty Stitches! Yes, one and a half. I started down the bottom with the blue and then stitched the red. When I got to the last line, the top of the red, I realised I was one stitch out. I had started stitching on the wrong row! It took me about the same time to unpick it as it did to stitch it! Talk about annoying!
Blocks 1 to 14. Only two more to go.
I also finished off two more Christmas decorations.
I really enjoy making these.
Finally, some of the goodies that came home with me.
