Thank you Donna!!

Who is Donna?! Donna is the assistant to the head coach of the Rams! We LOVE Donna!! In anticipation for the BIG game Tam, Bo and I wrote letters about Mike's LOVE for the Rams - I mailed them (along with some photos) to every Ram's address I could find! Not really thinking anything would really happen... Guess what?! They got them and Donna (the coach's assistant) came up to welcome us to the game! She not only put a welcome on the marquee - but she brought us a Rams bag filled with hats, football cards, a signed program and a personal signed letter from the coach! WHAT A SURPRISE!!
Donna said if we'd come back next year she could get us field passes or good seat!! Needless to say, it's in the plans to go back next year! SO AWESOME! Can you believe it?!
You'll have to take my word for this - I just caught the tail end of the message! On the marquee it says, "Welcome Mike Barben and family!" Isn't that too cool?!

Fun! I have never been to a real football game. I actually have never even had the desire, but this looks super, duper, genuinely FUN!

You guys must be living right! I think that we would all be dead on the ground if any of that happened to us, but in Green Bay of course. And Vanessa, you have now posted about Mike's team, your catching the bug!

Yea!!! My daughter is finally a football fan!!! I want pictures of the 5 of you at the game and the kids in the Rams gear. Send it on over to Wal-Mart ok?? Mike you deserve all of this...what a dream come true for you. Of course I am still a Bronco fan...but I am very impressed with how sweet they were to my Bo.
