Early Christmas Surprise!!

We surprised Ryanne with an early Christmas present!!

USNWT SOCCER GAME IN NEW ORLEANS!!!

There was such crazy rain on the way there and SO MANY wrecks that it took us 5 1/2 hours to get there!!!
We checked into the hotel.....and immediately felt under dressed.
Can we say FANCY?!

How could we have a fun girls New Orleans trip without jumping on the hotel beds?!!



Waiting down in the lobby for the taxi!



It took us so long to get to New Orleans that we didn't have time to make the half mile walk to the stadium so we hopped into a taxi!

SUPER DOME!!

We had amazing seats!!! 4th row!! on the home side!!



Abby Wambach was retiring after this game so they did a special presentation for her before the game started!


And one of the chicks from Pitch Perfect sang the National Anthem!! SO cool!






When Abby Wambach was called out towards the end of the game she kicked off her shoes and ripped off her shinguards! The game came to a hault as her team huddled up around her and the stadium stood up cheering!


We lost :(

But we still had a blast!
After the game Abby Wambach gave a short speech....


....then did a mic drop and walked off the field haha

it was pouring when we walked out of the stadium!! But getting a taxi proved impossible so we sucked it up and walked back to the hotel in the rain!


Before heading home the next morning we took a quick walk down to Jackson Square!
Cafe Du Monde was our first stop!!



Ryanne's FIRST time having beignets and mid bite she said "MMMMMMM These are SO GOOD!"



It was a short fun packed trip!
It was so much fun to surprise her at school!!

Merry Early Chirstmas, Boo!!

BIRTHDAY BOY!!!!!!!

We picked up some donuts on the way to school so Bubba could share it with his class and Blaire was pleased to know we brought home a few extra!

He got some special visitors at school for lunch!


For his birthday we took him to the local police station for a tour!!

HOLDING CELL!

POLICE CAR!!

He got to turn on the lights and sirens!

playing with handcuffs!


the baton is a lot heavier than we thought it would be!



so is the bullet proof vest!


It was so fun to check out the police station!
Bubba says his favorite thing was the PEPPER SPRAY!!!

He opened his presents when we got home!
Daddy got him Football trading cards and the folder and pages they go in!!!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUBBA BOY!!! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!
