HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! and The Chick-Fil-A Bowl

First of all I sincerely hope all of you out there have a wonderful, wonderful safe New Year!
Out with last year. (I remember saying that last New Years)
Well, it didn't work, except for many magical things that happened in my life, last year pretty much sucked.
But, I won't bore you with THAT soapbox!!!
Painting was wonderful and we welcomed a sweet new little bebe into our lives!!!
So, I'm gonna look on the bright side.
Is is really 2013?  Gosh it seems like yesterday it was 1959 (the year I was born) hehe.
We had a fantastic night last night!!!
Gregory came up with a couple of friends and my nephew Jackson and a friend of his.
Now, backgound history (gotta give you some history before we can move on ya know?)
"W" has been on the Chick-Fil-A Bowl Selection Committee for 5 years now.
Its a huge honor and one that many would love to be a part of.  He got lucky when he was chosen!
So, we had ALOT of tickets for the game last night.
You know, the one that um Clemson won????
Well, me with a sore throat, laryingitis, and a broken toe was about to fly to coup about the 3rd inning.
Even though I LOVE DABO
Dabo Swinney is a personal friend of ours and is truly our hero.
I cannot tell you properly what a great person he is.
Not many know of his life story, but it is simply ammazing
"There are no obsticles in one's mind, just opportunities"
Dabo Swinney
In high school he and his mom lost their home.  They slept in hotels until the money ran out, then they slept at friends homes on the floor.
When Dabo was in college at University of Alabama, his mom lived with him in his dorm room.
What an amazing person.
He even gives a big chunk of his salary to his assistants.
For Christmas, as a favor to "W" he signed 10 footballs for "W" to give out.
We are just so proud of him and what he has accomplished in his young life.
I'm sure he will have  an ammazing carreer.
Go DADO we love you buddy!!!!
now of course my camera was intow!!!

 have you ever had their milkshakes??? Don't start, you WILL become addicted...

 Fun Fest had tons of fun things to do!
 Unfortunitly #10 didn't have much fun
 If you got tired of the game the Club level had mucho flat screens for you to watch!
 and ya know, I'm sorry, but why can't the American's get their Gelato as good as the Italians?
I just don't understand it!

 they threw out 100's of little parachutes.  Unfortnately many got sutck in the line that the camera was on.

Dabo and one of our best friends Chris Donnelly (who holds one of those shiny National Championship ring himself!)
Clemson won!!!! yeah!!!
have a great day y'all!
