sorry this is soooo blurry but this pic
sets up the stage for my Bub's life long love of
the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
and Drew Brees #9
this was the night the Saints won the Super Bowl
he is waving a number one
and the shirt he is wearing...
was mine when I was little :)
let's flashback 2 Santas ago...
when my Bub asked Santa
yep on his knee at bass Pro Shop...
should have seen Santa's face
But he asked Santa for Drew Brees
you see we live in Texas
and it is Cowboy Nation
or Houston Texans Country
so I am pretty sure this Santa really had NO CLUE
what my kiddo was asking for
Bub wanted Drew Brees to go to Disney with us...
at the time if you asked Bub what his name was...
he would tell you
Drew Brees #9 Freeman Farley
(that is his name plus Brees plus a number plus my parents last name)
anyways he said this for years
he even learned to write his name like that...
well needless to say
Santa didn't kidnap Drew Brees
but he did give Bub a mini Drew Brees doll
and boy did he love it
and this Drew Brees went with us to Disney
here he is photobombing
as we drove by the Super Dome
(aka the Saints football dome)
well let me tell you my Bub started boo who-ing because
we didn't stop there to pick up the real Drew Brees
because he still thought the real Drew Brees was going to Disney with us...
Hubs saw an opportunity for Bub to get up close to Drew Brees
he took it...
my Drew yelled at Drew Brees...
DREW BREES NUMBER NINE
and waved his mini Drew at him...
Drew Brees leaned over and said
Hey there little buddy and tapped him on the head
my name is Drew too
(he is not named after Drew Brees he is named after my Great Gpa Drew... but it worked)
and Drew Brees asked Bub if he wanted his picture taken with him...
before we knew it...
was up on stage with
and look so is
it was magical
it was overwhelming
it was the best day
after Hubs got Bub off the stage they hugged so hard
and all of us were boo who-ing
it is not everyday where you get to see your kiddo's dreams come true...
and even though he is still not going to Disney with us
that one little moment and this one little pic
are magical memories
thanks to Mrs. Nelson
