I don’t really want to recap the game.
That’s already been done.
Besides, the Cardinals didn’t win so why bother.
It was a good game right down to the end.
Except for the part about unsportsmanlike conduct. We could bother to recap the grown men/professional athletes being paid tons of money and their bad behavior.
Which does always make for good conversation with the teenagers about how NOT to act.
But like I already said, I’m not going to recap the game.
Really, I’ve moved on.
I just wanted to recap “The Party.”
We went with Knox Double Decker Blox for both teams. In honor of our family’s love of whupping cream.
Scary Baby was quite helpful while her big sissies were working. I let her touch the yellow lemon Knox Blox since she insisted on rooting for the Steelers.
I obviously have no control.
She was also in charge of decorating the fruit pizza with the fruit and did a fine job.
Before Roger Leroy left for her shift at work, she was kind enough to run to the store for the forgotten poster board and she and Scary Baby got busy making signs.
They were lovely additions to the family room wall.
Wizzy got off work early so she had time to come home and crank out a sign too.
Which obviously did not meet with my approval. Note the last line.
I threatened to make her and Scary Baby (and The Grunter’s girlfriend) all watch the game in the basement because they insisted on rooting for Steelers. And I have no control.
Then I realized that we can all be different and still get along…sort of.
Even when Sharté arrived in Steelers attire.
Side note: The Steak-n-Shake hat made its way downstairs from The Grunter’s room. C-Mac and Roger Leroy were rooting for the Cardinals so they can wear whatever they want!
Oh yes, it was a
wild pretty relaxed party with the teens, a few of their friends plus Scary Baby.
Did anyone see the 3-D commercial(s)?
We were never sure if we really saw it but the girls stayed ready just in case.
We had our requisite spread of appetizers like wings, party ham rolls, mexican dip, chips and a crockpot of PhilBillPaul’s chili.
A good time was had by all…
I do NEED to tell you about the Carvel football cake and the experience of buying it and serving it. It commands its very own post. Seriously.
I don’t mean to keep you in suspense but it’s late and I’m tired so tune in Friday and I promise I’ll tell the ice cream cake story…
