Roll Tide!

The day of reckoning was Saturday. That's when Alabama's two college football teams turn to face each other in the Iron Bowl. Since my Sister-in-law, Leah, and her husband, Andy, are both Auburn alums, and Jacob and I support the University of Alabama, the rivalry is personal and spirited and takes place right there in the kitchen or on the couch...

This year, we got to involve two cute little tykes in it, dressing them in their respective team to say, neither one cared one bit...
but Andy cared a great deal when he had to wear my crimson cap as a gesture of defeat (we beat them 36-0, Roll Tide!) Look at him...that's pain right there!
Back to the boys, neither one feels particularly victorious or defeated...they were just happy to be sharing a great spot next to Granna's seat where all the picture books are...I hope they'll always love each other more than they love their parents' favorite teams.
