Seth scored two tickets at work for the Saints game against Atlanta….on Christmas Eve. I decided I did not want to leave the kids on Christmas Eve to go to the game. I could see he was disappointed since he loves his Saints so much. To my surprise, what did that sweet hubby of mine do!? He managed to score 3 more tickets….so that we could ALL go. I still don’t know if he did it to be sweet, or if that’s how bad he really wanted to see the game….I’m gonna go with sweet :)
I had so much anxiety traveling with three kids to the Superdome on Christmas Eve. Will they like it? Will it be too loud? Will they need to leave their seat every 5 minutes? Will this be enjoyable at all?
To my surprise, it was seriously one of the best times we had as a family ever. Everyone was smiling the whole time…the energy was awesome….no meltdowns…just an amazing memory we will always cherish. I cannot believe how smoothly it went….and they are still talking about “the Superdome.”
Easton was in awe with the ball, and the girls were in awe with the Saintsations. We actually passed the group when we were walking into the Dome, and they waved at Kennedy and Jules. They were all smiles!
In the first 20 minutes of the game, Jules & Easton fell asleep on me….really!? It was SOO loud..I have no idea how they stayed asleep. They took a nice 30 minute nap and woke up after the first touchdown.
I loved watching the kids cheer, dance, scream, clap, etc. They got SO into the game…much more than I thought they would.
It was a day I will remember for a long time – and I still smile when I think about the fun we had in the Dome. Thanks Dad for a memorable Christmas Eve!
