Mr P's Flag Football Toy Bowl


Which team is going to take home the Mr P’s 2018 Toy Bowl Championship?!? 

Will it be the Warhawks with those fast brothers (Silas and Auggie) who transferred in from Colorado?
Or those fierce tigers starring Camp and Rand who always bring their “A” game?
Or last years champions~ the Bulldogs~who are being lead by 1st graders Aulds and Pearson? 



    And don’t forget those cheerleaders.... Wowza!!!




They got the crowd so pumped with all their “Open up the Barnyard..” cheers 🤣🤣  and all their cute cartwheels and splits.



They wanted their boys to WIN!!! Lookin’ good Joy, Phoebe, Gray, Bella, Emma and Breelyn!!! 




  The boys hustled and played hard and most important, tried their best.





Tons of folks came out to cheer on the annual event. Moms,Dads,Aunts, Uncles, Friends, Neighbors, etc. Folks were tailgating and playing corn holes.






Juliana and MacCade were cheering on the Tigers.




 Skylar, Cricket and Justin were rooting for the bulldogs 

and Tori and Taylor were cheering on their fellow Warhawk friends.




  After the games were over, hotdogs were enjoyed and new friendships were cemented.








The winner really didn’t matter because a great time was had by all. 





The End. :)




Well, we didn’t reeeeallly have a toy bowl, but the kids all def thought they were on an ultimate play date at Forsythe Park in Monroe, LA one sunny Sunday afternoon And they did really eat hotdogs during their photo "break". 



Special thanks to Photographer Heather Land and her two most helpful assistants Stella and Beverly. I always love the behind the scenes pics. 






I'm so glad Coach Garvin was there and knew how to hook on the flags!! 



Thank you to all the parents who allowed your child to be in the shoot and thank you to our college/adult brand Reps for posing and being so patient. 😘



Did you like the tees used in the shoot?!?








They are available now online at www.mrpstees.com and will be in our select retailers in the next week or two. We are soooo ready for Fall, Football, Tailgates and Fun!!! 




Thanks for reading!! 
Love

BEST LOCAL PRODUCT- Thank you!!!!







First off...

THANK YOU! 


We learned that we won "Best Local Product" again this year in BayouLife Magazine's Bayou Buzz Awards. 
Wow!!! 
To think that we won this over some folks/businesses that we adore and respect like Kelly Moore Bags and Flying Tiger Brewery, is pretty amazing to us. 
  We are really appreciative and decided to take out an ad to thank all of you featuring our two kiddos ~ Pearson (aka Mr P) and Phoebe. 




Photo shoots are funny things. Especially when you are trying to do one for an ad in a magazine that will come out a whole month later. We wanted to show one of our newest tees ~ the Watermelon Chicken shirt and feature our kids wearing it in our big garden. When we found out we won, there was not a whole lot of time... luckily, our friend Kelly Moore Clark was able to squeeze in some pics for us one evening before the rain hit. 

So here is the new design....

They really are all hand drawn by me! No clip art!!! 



We try to create tees that have some sort of special meaning to us.......In our other life (besides  the tees, and me being a talented art teacher and Brent selling windows and doors, we like to pretend that we are "farmers".....

We like to "grow stuff!".... 

and we have a dozen Hens and they LOVE watermelon!!!!  YUM
Last year, you may remember that we grew pumpkins and we had a funny Pumpkin patch tee that represented our adventures in trying to grow them. 

 Art Imitating Life 



This year,
we are attempting watermelon and cantaloupe... so far, so good. But, the watermelon and cantaloupe are TINY!!! 

Nothing you want the public to see for the moment. They are smaller than my shoes!!!! Hahahah 

  Fake it until you Make it!!! - Right?!? 

  So, poor Brent and P went on a mission to find some really big impressive watermelon in the grocery stores so that we could place it around our patch for the shoot. 

They ended up at Super 1 in West Monroe and bought 4 biggies. 

Thank goodness I remembered to peal off those big red stickers! HA


Brent placed them around the vines.


And Kelly went and caught one of our hens for Phoebe to hold in the photo. That would be Posey the Chicken :)

Hopefully, 
OUR watermelon will look this good and be this BIG next month........to be continued.


Thank you again for voting for us for Best Local Product. We are proud to say that we have donated more than $75,000 back to our community and region since 2013. Pretty amazing for this little small family owned company!!!

Love
Lissy
