Charlotte, Family

Roll Tide Roll!

You all know that we’re hard core Alabama fans.  We are raising our children to be the same and Charlotte’s been singing the fight song for at least a year and James will throw his arm up and wave a shaker any time someone says “Roll Tide!”  But with the crazy month of November, I got behind on my game day posts so I’m going to combine the last three into one post to catch you up.
Texas A&M
A 2:30 kickoff which interferred with James’ afternoon nap meant that Charlotte and Jason went to the the pre-game festivities with Memma and Papa.  James and I headed to the game in the second quarter once James woke up.  We ended up leaving in the 3rd quarter due to kids who were tired and wanted to go home.  I’m kind of glad too because had we stuck around for the end of the game after dealing with fussy little one’s I wouldn’t have been happy.
Highlights of the weekend:
Charlotte got to meet some actual cheerleaders and do the “B-A-M-A Bama all the way!” cheer for them.

I spent some portion of the game with both kids on my lap pushing at each other.  Ok, maybe this was a lowlight but still funny in retrospect!

Some fun family time in Bryant-Denny.

And those blue eyes.  Can’t beat them.
Overall, the loss was a bummer.  And made Charlotte’s lifetime record at games attended 18-2.  Not bad for a 3.5 year old.

Jason, James, and I stayed home to pack for this game.  Memma and Papa graciously took Charlotte down to the game and I’m pretty sure they regretted that decision since Charlotte was awake from 3-5:30 am playing and then fell asleep in the car on the way home and was a grumpy bear when she got up.  But the weekend was redeemed for Charlotte when she got to take a picture with some Sparkly Cheerleaders after the game!
James and I were still feeling pretty icky so we stayed at home and watched the game on tv.  The super cold temps didn’t tempt us, nor did the blowout of a game.  It was nice to win so handily in a rivalry game but, honestly, it didn’t even feel like a rivalry game which was kind of sad.  
Highlights of the weekend:
Charlotte dancing on the swooshy A in the middle of the field, post-win
Another picture with sparkly cheerleaders
Lots of snuggle/bonding time with Papa and James

Lots of snuffle time with my baby boy

And Charlotte seeing a promo for the SEC Championship game after the game and saying (unprompted), “Hey! Those are the bulldogs that we teach to behave!”
Roll Tide!
