Happy Happy Birthday!

Yesterday was Louis's first birthday. I can't believe it's already been a year. What a wonderful year it has been! We had a party at our house yesterday for family and some friends. Louis had a great time playing with all his friends and eating his cupcake!
Thank you to all our family for your help making the food.
Here are some photos from the party thanks to my sister, Caitlin!

I had planned to write a blog all about LSU's amazing football season that ended with a third National Championship. Sadly, that won't be happening this year. As I'm sure you all know, LSU lost to bama Monday. It was truly heartbreaking. Don't get me wrong- I still love the Tigers and I am a proud LSU alum, but Monday was a little more than I can handle.
The funny part about all this is that I never thought we would see the day when LSU went 13-1 in football. I vividly remember LSU losing to UAB, barely scraping past Tulane, and considering Vanderbilt a true test. How things have changed. When LSU played in the Independence Bowl when I was in 8th grade we all thought we had died and gone to heaven. Now, I'm pretty sure that LSU wouln't even accept a bid to that bowl. It's truly a shame that we consider the season a loss when we end up ranked #2 in all the polls to a team that we beat once already in the season.
Ok, no more about LSU. I'm sure most of you stopped reading long ago. I just had to say something about my Tigers and that I really am proud of how well they did this year.
I'll leave you with this video:
