Avery's first LSU game!

We had a pretty busy weekend. Of course, any weekend that we get to watch the Tigers win is a good one. Avery got to watch her first LSU game, although she heard her momma going a little crazy when LSU won the National Championship, it was pretty dark in mommy's tummy, so she didn't get to watch a game until Saturday! She was all geared up in her "Grrr...I'm a little Tiger!" onesie. I couldn't find a pink one so it does look a little boyish - but it was LSU - so I'm sure she didn't mind a one time exception to our all pink, all the time rule! We went back to Vidalia Friday night since I had a hair appt Saturday morning - and the LSU game was rescheduled to 10 am - yuck! I thought if I waited until her bedtime she would sleep all the way - think again. She was doing good until her daddy called the car phone which comes through the speakers and woke her up! Then she cried about half the way, with me stopping 3 or 4 times (I lost count) and finally she fell asleep. The rest of the trip consisted of Avery snoozing and me praying, "God, please let her stay asleep - God, please let me stay awake!" For some reasons on Friday nights I am always so exhausted. Needless to say, no more Friday night trips to Vidalia. She was a little grouchy Saturday but I still managed to get some good pics and videos, I'm going to post them all in this one post, so its a ton of 'em. We also got to go to Avery's first bridal shower. My mom said I loved going when I was little. I hope Avery grows into that. She was a bit grouchy there too, but overall she did ok. I was glad to show her off to some of my friends from high school. And it was fun to catch up with them too. I hate that we live so far apart! The trip home went much better because Avery's nonna went with us and rode in the back with her, keeping her entertained. My mom and dad helped Mark move into his first house in Ruston. (btw, congrats Bulldogs on beating an SEC team...whoda thought?!?) Well, hope you enjoy the tons of pics and as many videos as I have the patience to upload! Stay safe during this Gustav mess and oh yeah, HAPPY LABOR DAY!
