Game On


We are almost ready for the big game here. Cookies are baked, and the rest of our football buffet will be ready soon. We always eat in front of the TV with food spread all over the coffee table for this occasion. Even the football hating Emma gets excited about Super Bowl Sunday because she gets to eat in the family room.

It is so exciting to have the big game in our town this year. I love seeing my town shine. I'm happy to watch from home though, and I'm one of those rare girls that loves football. I will cozy up with my guy, knitting in lap and cheer on my pick. Even though my team didn't make it to the end (we were only 10 wins short), we are a loyal bunch so we're cheering on Peyton's little brother. Go Giants!

  4. YAY!! Peyton Manning is our fav!!
    So we would be cheering on his lil bro too:) But we are not even watching:( No tv and I don't like the headache of trying to get it streaming. Or the viruses that can come from it. Hope the giants win!
