Look Who's Ready for Some Football!

Our dear friend Miss Rachel made the girls the cutest Alabama blouses.  They asked to wear them on Monday, and they were actually giddy about having their pictures taken.  (I always jump on that kind of rare opportunity!)  The sun was a little brighter that morning than they'd probably bargained for, but I got a couple of gems...

It's that wonderful time of year again, the anticipation of the start of football season.  I'm so ready!  This time of year makes me think of gorgeous college campuses...a hint of fall in the air...tailgates and ballgame food...and great friends and family.

We have yet to take the girls to their first Bama game...I'm thinking next year will probably make sense for us to make the trip...but -- even a couple of states removed from the Heart of Dixie -- we still celebrate kickoff in full Bama regalia.

Here's a little look back at our celebratory gear...

Season 1, ~7 months old...the first picture of them both smiling!

Season 2, 20 months...the day of the Penn State Game game.

Season 3, 2 1/2 years old...sporting their new jerseys and giving a hearty ROLL TIDE!

We're definitely ready for some football in our house!  (At least Daddy and I are...the girls are just excited about wearing their Bama gear, and that's OK, too.)

I'm linking up with Ms. Cheryl at Twinfatuation for Way Back When-esday.  Thanks -- as always -- for the inspiration to dig through my photo files.  I always love the walk down Memory Lane.  :)

Love, love, love all the Alabama attire!! Those tops are very cute! I'm trying to think of something not too hard I might be able to make for A & M this season. I guess I better get on with it, huh?

There is an excitement in the air in our office this week--we are full of die-hard Bama fans, minus the two who root for the other team. : ) Despite spending the first weekend watching those OTHER guys play, I'm excited for the season to begin!

They couldn't be more precious....and neither could you for getting them all 'Bama-ed up! Darling, darling, darling!

What fun looking at their previous "pep" rallies for the seasons ahead, too!

Thank you so much for looking back and playing along with Way Back When-esday, Mandy! :)

Oh goodness...I am definitely a fan of the cuteness,,,and those bows!!

How appropriate that they both first smiled for a pic while wearing their Bama gear!
