My son is a HUGE Steelers fan. Has been since his childhood. As a teenager, he and his dad painted this big HUGE Steelers logo (just like the one above) on one of his bedroom walls. It took up the entire wall. So, you can imagine his excitement when his beloved Steelers made it to the Super Bowl. I promised him "football food" as he requested. We had meat and cheese, bread, crackers and a couple of kinds of chips and dip.Rachel made an awesome cheese dip.Not a whole lot of color in that food! I added a bit on the side....I had an Atkin's plate, though my weight has not dropped this week. I have not cheated AT ALL, and am getting frustrated playing this game with the scale. Hopefully I will be able to report a significant drop next Monday, Sharon.
Kyle had a friend over and they ordered pizza and watched a movie downstairs. He did join us for most of the game after his friend left.
TJ came over all decked out and "ready for some footbaaaaaall!!!"Paw Paw worked with him all season to say "Steelers Stink.", but TJ came in today saying "Bears are stink"!! Daddy had been working on him!!!Little Emerson was as cute as she could be!! What a sweet disposition. She wakes up smiling! She and Grandma caught up!!The game was going so smoothly for the Steelers that a few people fell asleep!!!! Sweetheart napped in his Bears hat...he is a diehard!Bud's girls did not make it either....TJ and Zachary played, but TJ got very tired at the end of the evening. He curled up next to grandma and fought to keep his eyes open. He did make it through the game though, unlike some others I have already mentioned!Charlotte watched the game while working on her "skinny scarf" she is making for Rachel.She did clean up the kitchen for me during half time.I worked on the last of the hand quilting on a table runner and put the binding on the front during half time (I did see Bruce sing a couple of songs), and worked on the back during the rest of the game. I can show you the front once it gets to it's new home.It did not take long for all the sleepyheads to wake up, as the game got a little tense at the end. Bud was on the edge of his seat!!! Emerson thought it was all great and did not doubt her team for a second!Those Steelers pulled it out and won the Super Bowl!!! They made history twice during that game...one for the longest play (that was awesome even if you are not a football fan) and another for having the youngest coach. No, not him..... My son had a GREAT day!!!! As a side note, it seems the Steelers won a Super Bowl the year TJ was born and now another in the year Emerson was born....maybe I will get more grandkids yet!!! He would do anything to see his Steelers win a Super Bowl!!
