You would not believe...

what all has happened since the last time I have written on here. My boys are now a Senior in high school and an 8th grader
.
I am no longer a football mom. I am now a band (percussion), golf, cross country, Boy Scout, theater, scholar's bowl mom.
   
 My oldest is looking at colleges and my youngest is testing his
 waters.
 The main thing I want to share as I hopefully (fingers crossed) start back blogging regularly is that teenager boys aren't that bad. Well except the smell ;-).
   
 My boys have wanted to spend more time with me, talk more with me and they actually plan stuff for us to do. I even have heard the words "I am sorry" come from their mouths which in my opinion is something every mother should be teaching her son (their future wives will thank you). As I have said before God knew what he was doing when he gave me boys. I am not saying that our home doesn't have issues, fusses or even chaos but it is our pandemonium and I LOVE IT!

ALL IN....

(I wrote this back in May after the storms but never published it.)


Driving through Tuscaloosa has become a chore, but not because of traffic. It is because of heartbreak! The destruction that the evil giant unleashed on Tuscaloosa is unavoidable (watch the videos you will see what I am talking about. It looks like it has arms and is walking destructively through our city.) You can't go here to there without seeing it. I avoided all the areas as long as I could but it just isn't logical.

I know some people don't understand why I am so upset since I wasn't "directly" impacted, but that just shows that they don't know our city. Our city is more than just a football loving university town. WE ARE FAMILY!

It isn't just our city either. It is our state. We have all come together to help each other no matter what team you cheer for, what city you live in or what race you are. We have become a state of help, concern and love. AND FOR ONCE I AGREE WITH AUBURN, WE ARE ALL IN!!!!!!!!

My city and state are hurting! :-(



It has been a long week here in Alabama. A week ago today tornados took away our normal lives. The boys and I are ok. We were less than one block from some of the major damage. I just can't believe how lucky we are. I know it has been a long time since I have written but I feel like I need to ask my blogging family for help for my town and my state. There are many ways you can help, but the biggest thing is you can pray for my city. We are heartbroken, but I will say this I am proud of the response and the attitude during all of this.

If you would like to help, you can go to numerous places to see what is needed. I will try to list a few here.

Just wanted to share with you guys my FB status....

Sabrina Baker Sentell has realized that her meaning of being a princess is a van driving, football game attending, homework helping, test studying, clothes washing, room cleaning, hug giving and always listening MOM!

Thank you my crazy lovable boys for making me a PRINCESS!!!!!

You know you are a DOUBLE football mom when...

1. You have to do laundry every night or your whole house smells like a football player the next morning.
2. Mouthpieces disappear and get chewed up faster than socks get lost in the dryer.
3. Instead of listening for the pitter patter of little feet you listen for the clunky clunk of cleats.
4. You arrange everything around practice and games and your time is out the window.
5. You hear about every hit they make but you hear more about the little bruise that is barley big enough to see.
6. You remember the score to the football game that was played before the Alabama game better than you do the Bama score.
7. You are chanting the cheers from both of the games all week in your head. Just like one of those songs that you hear and you just can't get it out of your head(Let's get a little bit....oops there I go again).
8. You have discovered the magic of getting stains out of white football pants
without questioning how they got there since you never saw the player hit the
ground.
9. You wear your son's t-shirt to show support for the team even though he thought he hid them all from you.
10. AND IT DOESN'T MATTER IF THEY WIN OR LOSE, PLAY OR SIT THE BENCH....YOU STILL CHEER THEM ON, YELL THEIR NAME AND BRAG AS MUCH AS THE STAR QB'S MOM!!!!!

GO STAMPEDE!!!! GO HUSKIES!!!!!!!!!

Christmas Playlist




Today over at Exemplify, they are hosting a Christmas Playlist blog, so since Preston has had me watching Christmas movies for the past week, I thought I would share some of my favorites with you.

First let me say that the OLD Christmas cartoons are my favorite and the best of all times is "The Year Without a Santa Claus". One reason it is my favorite is the following video....



I have included a few more of my favorites for your enjoyment. :-)

Mary Did you Know?



And a scene from The Little Drummer Boy that just gives me cold chills every time that I see it.

So click on over to Exemplify and share your Christmas Favorites and maybe it will help someone else begin to get in the Christmas Spirit. :-)

MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS!
