First, if there is anyone out there who hasn't heard...the New Orleans Saints WON the Super Bowl!!!! Now, SNOW with SOME ACCUMULATION!!!
I know it in no way compares to the amount that has blanketed the east coast area, but you just have to understand that this is the first significant accumulation for us in about 10 years. That means none of my 4 grandchildren have ever had an opportunity to experience what so many of you take for granted, the building of a snowman ...until today!!!
However, even though it is still snowing now, they had better get out there quickly and start scraping up that snow before it begins to melt later today.
Here are the oldest two with their first ever snowman.
They say confession is good for the soul so here goes...I watched my first full football game tonight!!! There... I admitted it to the whole world. I've never been a football fan. The only football games I attended when I was in high school were the home games where my boyfriend played ...drums in the marching band. So I wasn't officially watching the game. Then there was the homecomimg game at college that I attended. My aunt had made my cousin an awesome outfit for the occasion ,but she was restricted to staying in the dorm for the entire weekend (That's another whole story.) so I wore her new outfit. After all, we couldn't let a perfectly good suit go to waste.
After the Saints made it to the Super Bowl for their first appearance in 42 years, it would have been almost unAmerican or a least unLouisianan not to watch the game. Who Dat????
(Kathy, I hope you don't mind that I borrowed your Saints pic from your blog. Thanks.)
