I-O-U the 4-1-1...the rest of the story, as promised!

So now for the rest of the story!
You remember last week. I was so super HAPPY about our big day with Cam Newton!
I promised to come back and share the rest of the story and today is the day!
The Panthers are locked out of the they had practice at a local school. The practices had been open all week...but last Thursday, they were closed to the public...and open to the media.
Our friend, Kevin Donnalley, played for the Panthers when they went to the Superbowl!
He helps out with the team...and he was able to get us in!
We were sporting our Fan Wear....Auburn Tigers (where Cam played) and Carolina Panthers!
The boys brought 2 brand new footballs and were busy getting them signed by all of their favorite players...and then some!
Thomas Davis. He played for Georgia!
Jeremy Shockey, previously with the Saints!
Lots of other Panthers players. I need the boys here to tell me these names!
Jimmy Clausen, QB!
And then it was time for more fun and games. Emily was in the golf cart that was being pushed down field by the players. They were sweaty and smelly...but she loved it!
 And then Kevin called in a huge favor and got Cam to take a photo with us!
Someone made this the wallpaper for our family computer.
(Not me...and I didn't know anyone else knew how to do that!)
 I hope it isn't our Christmas card pic...but who knows!
Crazy fun!
Now you have the 4-1-1!
Today is alphabe-Thursday!
The letter of the day is I!
To read more, head on over to Jenny Matlock's blog!

  1. OH MY GOD - as a seriously huge Cam fan, I am totally speechless over that last photo ... heck YES to using it as a christmas card photo ... AND blowing it up poster size for every room in the house - I mean WOW - just wow!! He is every bit as adorable and sincere and genuine as I thought he would be ... I can see it in that great smile of his ... GREAT photo ... I am sooooo envious ;-)

  2. Wow the boys must have been awestruck. Isn't it surreal to be around football players. My cousin married a professional football player and at the wedding The Agronomist at 6ft felt like a shrimp. The rest of us were lillliputians. Looks like you had a great time.

  3. What a once in a lifetime opportunity. I bet the boys were lovin' it.

  4. That is just so super! How much fun!


  5. Cool pictures and Drew would totally tell you to use the Cam one as a Christmas card. . .but you might want to wait and see if there is a season, and how they do!:)

    looks like a once in a lifetime day!

  6. That is so awesome! How exciting! so glad you had this wonderful opportunity!

  7. That last picture is awesome! You guys all look so teeny next to that big guy!

  8. What cool fun for the whole family!

  9. Oh man! Such an awesome, cool time!!

  10. You so need to use that as your Christmas card. He totally looks like he's part of your family. ;)

    What an amazing day that must have been for everyone. So, so exciting!

  11. I'm a huge sports fan, your post has me smiling from ear to ear! What an exciting day!

  12. Wow! What an amazing time for you all. What a lovely family you have. You certainly don't look old enough to have kids that old...I might believe an infant!

    Just think, someday these footballs will show up on Antique Roadshow and hopefully they'll turn the volume up loud enough in the nursing home so I can hear the story of this lovely day!

    Thanks for linking and thanks for the smile.
