Saints Super Bowl Party with the Family

The last few weeks have left me feeling breathless. First the Saints made it into the playoffs, then they became the NFC Champions. Now, they are the winners of Super Bowl XLIV. This is the first time the Saints even made it to the Super Bowl. After waiting all these decades, Saints fans were on pins and needles as we watched them playing the Indianapolis Colts (the team that most people favored).

We invited my sister-in-law and her boyfriend over to our house to watch the game with us. We also have an exchange student from China who is staying with us for a week and we talked her into watching the game with us, too. The German bought us all temporary tattoos to wear during the game. We also got our student a Saints shirt so that she could experience the Who Dat fever with us. Here's a few photos from that night.

The German popped open a bottle of champagne and we all went wild when the game ended and the Saints won.

We bought a bottle of sparkling apple pomegranate juice for the girls to drink when we toasted the Saints victory.
