Hey All! So sorry my posts have been few and far between. When I started this blog, I had much better intentions. I promise this offseason I am going to really dive in and give this whole blog thing my full effort. I guess it goes to show that life really does get busy and when I do have some downtime when the girls nap, I have at least 3 loads of laundry to put in, fold, and put away [Does anyone else’s laundry grow by the second?!]... But hey, hindsight is always 20/20 right? I promise to be better when life slows down a little. However, we are fully enjoying this ride and cherishing every single second.
As far as what has been going on in the Rudolph world...the Vikings made the playoffs! WOOOOOHOOOO! The Vikings got the ‘BYE’ for the first round and had to play the New Orleans Saints at home this past Sunday. I’m sure everyone who has a TV or access to the internet knows that the Vikings won on an insane play in the last 10 seconds of the game. That game was such an emotional rollercoaster. The Vikings came out so strong the first half...we all thought the game was in the bag. However, anyone who watches football or any sport for that matter knows...nothing is guaranteed or in the bag until the final whistle and the clock reads 0:00.
The second half, we were up & we were down. But the guys never gave up. I thought for sure when we got the ball back after New Orleans kicked a field goal to go ahead...that we would get as close as we could and kick a field goal to win. But, something way more awesome happened. Case had the ball and threw it to Diggs. Diggs not only caught the ball, but he then turned and ran it into the end zone. US Bank Stadium absolutely erupted. I have never seen or heard anything like it...in my entire life. I was jumping, screaming, high fiving, and crying. I could not even believe my eyes and what I just saw.
Looking out on the field, the entire team had run to meet Diggs in the end zone to celebrate and to find their family and friends in the stands. To look down on the field and see Kyle so happy, so proud, so emotional, It’s something I will never forget. I am so beyond proud of him and the entire Minnesota Vikings team.
I am so excited that we are still playing football and that the season continues on. The Vikings are headed to play the Eagles for the NFC Championship. I can't wait to be at the game and cheering my heart out for my husband and his team. Let's go Vikings! BRING IT HOME!!!
As far as Fin and Andi...What's new with the girls!? They have moved right on from walking to running. They open doors [there is no more keeping them in one room]. They are busy as ever. They love swim lessons and Little Gym. They love to do somersaults, play with each other, and talk. I, of course, think they are talking so well, but other people have no clue what they are saying. MOM LIFE. They love football & their daddy. They love going to the games to cheer on dad and dance to the music. They are getting so big and learning & trying new things every single day. Life is extremely busy with them right now...but I am loving this new stage and the little people they are growing into.
