WINTER WONDERLAND, PACKER VICTORY, AND FINISHED OBJECT

Lots of pictures today. First we have the picture of the finished baby sweater for my great nephew, Bruce. Just in time for him to wear it for the NFC Championship game on Sunday. I am so happy that the Packers won!!

This is a close up of the football buttons I put on the sweater. I think they add just the right touch to the sweater.
This is a picture of the two men who sat behind us at the game on Saturday. (Dan and Tom)
It truly was magical. We felt like we were in a snow globe. That big white blob on the photo is a huge snow flake. It wasn't on my camera, but in front of the lens. So cool!
Before the game Tom and I stood in line so he could have Frank Winters and Antonio Freeman sign a mini helmet and a Sports Illustrated that had Antonio on the cover.
This is Tom and I near the end of the game. We could hardly see the players on the field. I know that this was the most fun I have had at Packer game ever.
We will be able to go to the NFC Championship game in Green Bay on Sunday. Maggie has a volleyball tournament in Merrill, WI so I will be getting up at 4:30 Sunday morning and we will leave at 5:00 to get her there at 7:30. Tom is planning on getting there around 11:00 to watch a few games and then we will head on to Green Bay. I think it is a two hour drive from Merrill to Green Bay. Maggie will ride home with another parent after the tournament.

I think I will get another Packer tatoo if they win and we go to the Super Bowl. I'm thinking of a small jersey with Favre's name and number on it. Probably on the same ankle as my Green Bay G, just on the outside of my leg. I'm sure some of you think I'm nuts, and maybe I am. I just love my Packers so much.

I'm going to start a pair of mittens today and hope to get them done for Maggie's friend, Alexa by Wednesday. Think I can do it?

Well, I'm off to work out!! Wish me luck! Happy knitting!

*another* Packer's tattoo?!? There is so much I don't know about you...can we still be friends? Well, yes, I'm not really a Vikes fan (ssshhhh.) But I love this post and find it a little hilarious.

Yea Pack!!! The sweater is awesome...especially the buttons. I will be watching the Packer game from my sofa but will cheer for a win. According to my kids they will probably here me in GB. On to the Superbowl. J
