I am not mad!!!! Very disappointed, but not mad.
Yes, Alabama lost against Florida yesterday in the SEC Championship game. Instead of going to the BCS Championship Game, Bama will be playing in the Sugar Bowl here in my home state in the city of New Orleans. Bama just can't seem to get away from Louisiana (they have played in the Independence Bowl for the last two years in Shreveport)!! Wayne and I are trying to get tickets as I type. I would give anything to go and cheer my team on in a bowl game for three years in a row! We'll see.
My thoughts about the game? I like Tim Tebow. I always have. That dude is a hoss! He has the culmination of the entire offensive line in his body. But honestly, I got tired of seeing his face on my TV. Enough of Tim Tebow, people. I like their coach. He's kinda cute. As for my team, I thought they made alot of mistakes. Usually Aerenas redeems himself (I'm referring to him stepping out of bounds on that last punt return), but he was never given another chance. I thought JPW began to loose it at the end. And what with that fake field goal? Give me a break!!!
I was scared to death of us playing Okalahoma in the BCS Championship! I'm glad that won't be happening. I knew that even if we could (somehow) beat Florida, we would never get past OU! We have no reason to hang our heads. Bama had an awesome year! No one expected us to do as well as we did and to go 11-0, well, that's something that no on else in the SEC was able to do. I will continue to say, "Roll Tide!!"
I haven't decided who I will be pulling for in the BCS game on January 7th. I feel obligated to cheer for Florida because they are an SEC team, but after getting beat, well, there is a part of me that doesn't want them to win. I like Oklahoma. I always have. As long as they didn't join the SEC. Ha, ha!
Now, the good news is that you don't have to read anymore about Alabama until January 2nd!!
I've been busy baking this weekend so I'm catching up on everyone's blogs. Alise was suppose to help me in the baking department, but she decided to TOTALLY wig out on me Saturday morning when we were leaving the library and decided to carry it on into the pharmacy and grocery store. I was not happy with her at all! So, her punishment was that she didn't get to help me make "Peanut Butter Tassies" and white covered pretzels. We were suppose to make a birthday cake for Jesus, but I didn't think that being totally ticked off and making a cake for my Savior would really go over that well, so we will have to wait until another weekend.
Wayne kept Alise this afternoon while I did some more of my Christmas shopping. I can't remember if I told you or not, but last week, someone asked Alise what Santa was bringing her for Christmas. She told them that he was bringing her a baby doll. A baby doll? UGH! She doesn't even play with dolls that much!! So, off I ran to Toys R Us this afternoon to get a baby doll!! I haven't even started wrapping yet! I told myself last year that I would never again save all my wrapping for one night. I've got to make a dent in it sometime. Wayne has offered to help, but I just can't seem to get in the mood to wrap.
Here are some pictures from our photo sessions - yes, more than one - today!
