My Mom, 81 Years Young

Today at school, I found this voicemail message from my mom.

Yes, she wrote it.

Yes, she said, "Tootleooo!" at the end.

She's so stinkin' cute.


She was also inspired to write this:

PACKER FANS, EXPLAINED by Elsie


Did you ever wonder why
we Packer fans shout to the sky
Why we yell, and holler, and jump around,
making such an awful sound?


It's not because we enjoy
being part of the maddening crowd
that we yell and holler and jump around,
and it's not because we enjoy making all that noise
or being rowdy girls and boys.


Listen close, and I'll tell you the reason--


We jump and holler TO KEEP FROM FREEZIN!

  4. Go Elsie !!
    You should mix that with a few pictures of her wearing Packers gear and make a viral video.
    She has a great voice.

  5. Get more clips of her singing. Post video on YouTube (like Esmee Denters did) and before too long Justin Timberlake will sign her to his record label.
