And We Celebrate Again!!

So my computer download has been messed up for the last couple of weeks but here is a post I have had saved for a while :)
Last night the Burns' celebrated yet another National Championship won by our beloved Alabama Crimson Tide!  We gathered as usual about 30 minutes before the game started to try and eat a little bite but most of us just nibble enough to make the nausea feeling go away!

 As the 2011 defending National Champions run onto the field everyone finds a spot to sit or stand for the next three hours.  Some were on the couch, others standing behind the couch, and one seated in a folding chair behind everyone clenching two pom poms that were not to be shaken by anyone other than the owner of them at the beginning of the game.

The kids were being so good playing in their rooms and it was time to get serious.....only this year it didn't take long to realize that we were soon going to be back-to-back Champions and enjoy another glorious year of the Alabama Crimson Tide being yet again the BEST IN THE NATION!!!  And as Saban so proudly spoke at the end of the game....we will enjoy this for a couple of days and then start on next year! ***ROLL TIDE ROLL***

We love the rain these days....

Well, I told you that Al is now the proud owner of a Jeep Wrangler. I have to admit it is a really fun vehicle to have and now we don't dread it raining for several days! We see it as an opportunity to dirty up that pretty yellow jeep!
This past Sunday it had been raining for a few days and Al saw this as another great opportunity. This time he took a couple of others with him.  They had a ball!  Carmen and Anna Beth came back just giggling and arguing which side was "dirtier".  Carmen also told Al that it was supposed to rain again today and he totally needed to call her again.  I know we are going to have many "dirty" and fun times in this Jeep!
