These are actually the outfits we wore to church this morning! We are not used to our state team being in an actual league championship! I mean, they have NEVER been to a superbowl. And since Louisiana, honestly, ranks, like 49th or 50th in most of the "good" rankings, like schools, medical care, general health, and like, 1st or 2nd in "obesity", "early deaths" etc... it is really GREAT for our state as a whole to have a little "feel good", morale boost like this!
soooo... the Groves house is happy to lend our support!
We got our game faces on. After all, this is right up there with a SNOW DAY in Louisiana. It just doesn't happen! ANd when it does, we bring out the salt for the road, chains for the tires, and anything and everything that looks like it may "sled" across the 1" of accumulation from the flurries!!
Mary Allison was spending her obligatory Sunday afternoon with us, so of course, she "got her paint on" too.
And if you notice in the background there.... SOooooomeone has returned to the many, many orders that were awaiting her after Christmas. Please email me if you are still waiting on yours. ANd I DO apologize! I was overwhelmed with the Christmas orders! I will start earlier this year!
Little Miss sat so still and really acted maturely for this process. I likened it to painting fingernails, so she was all over that concept!
And yes... that is what I wore to church too!
Ok, pay attention to Maddi's shirt (may have to zoom in) because I will reference it shortly.
By now, you know that we all get together for any football game... LSU or Saints!
and we typically gather at HER house...
and SHE is always there too! (Don says he has two wives!)
ANd SHE Is always in the bunch, especially considering she lives on the other side of the BAH that now divides them.
Maddi refused to smile or pose. THis is the best I could get!
And now for the real reason I wanted to do a big ol' Saints post... the PANTS!
Staci had these made for the girls as a preview! She is going to be selling them at her store this week... like hotcakes!
I asked her if I could get any of you who want them to order them, by when would she need that order to get them shipped out. She said with two weeks to spare, she would need to know by Thursday in order to get them all out on time.
So if you are local... head straight to Spoiled Rotten... that shirt that Maddi is wearing above... that is a white tee with a black fleur de lis and gold Madison monogrammed across it.
The cost of the shirt $25. The pants, IF there is any fabric left in our city, will also be ready in a day or two. Call Staci to place the orders at her store... 318-324-1159. May be getting more of the pants ready before the big game. Will have to call her to confirm! Little boy shirts with "Who Dat" are also ready for purchase. Nothing like blogging to promote little sis's store, huh?!
And one more thing....
