Superbowl Sunday

The last few days have been pretty hard for us, but we are trying to cope as best we can. We have friends and family coming over to watch the game with us today. Jason and I both love making snacks so we should have some good food too. I hope everyone enjoys the game. Eli loved football so we will be watching it in honor of him.

Update:
We were cheering for the Cardinals...as was everyone here. I didn't really have a love of either team, but picked them because my baby boy loved red. :) For those of you who didn't get to meet Eli, I thought I'd share a cute story with you.

One Sunday evening Jason and I were watching football and Eli was just hanging out in his bouncy seat. We started to notice that he would cry when the game went to commercial, but would quit when it came back on. He loved football. We really figured this out a few Sundays later. People were over trying to talk and play with him and he would cry if they blocked the TV. He wanted to watch the game! He was our little sports buddy already. We told him we would have a Super Bowl party, so we did... I hope he was here in spirit to enjoy it with us.

We will be watching the Superbowl, too......well at least the half-time show- LOL!

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to add the "Savings Information" on your money-saving blog. It was very informative! Lessons from an expert is always nice.

Have a great day!

Gary and I are on opposite sides - he is for the birds, and me - for anything but a team with a BIRD as a mascot!!!

How about you and Jason! Eli - oh we know that he is playing with the Angels :)

It was a very close game! I am glad you had people over and did the Superbowl Party just as you told Eli you would.

Madi loves red too... and so far football and hockey. She had a similar experience as Eli, crying during commercials, but totally focused during the game, it's so funny how they were already into sports!

Hearing those stories makes me wish again they were able to meet... it sounds like they would have been two peas in a pod...I know Madi will love hearing about her pea pod twin when she is able to understand....
