Superbowl Sunday

The boys are sports crazy. At 4.5 they know more sports statistics, players and their numbers and teams than I do. They spent the season grilling Tate about all of it and every morning after a game would wake up to ask him who won. One night I woke up to Jackson standing next to our bed. He said - and this is a direct quote - "Excuse me Mommy. Sorry to bother you. Do you know who won the game?" I'm pretty sure it was about 1 a.m. and I wasn't too thrilled, but with manners like that it's hard to be mad!

In addition the boys would do their "picks" every Wednesday with their aunties who take care of them while Tate and I are at work.

When it got down to the two superbowl teams everybody was firmly on the side of the 49ers - except Brett. He went with the Ravens.

The boys were excited about the matchup and even put in their requests for Superbowl snacks.

Auntie Kerry surprised the boys with Super Duper Candyland. The boys love that game and she used colored paper to set up a life-sized version of the game in our house. We all got to take turns being the gingerbread pieces and Auntie Nancy won twice and I won once. The boys had a blast!

We enjoyed the food and the boys got to hang out until half time. They, of course, couldn't wait to find out who won, but wanted to watch the second half the second they woke up.

I didn't take many photos but here's one of everyone eating and watching (me and Brett are off camera!)

Brett in his football helmet pjs - he only snoozed for a few minutes.

As the only one who rooted for the Ravens Brett got to enjoy a big piece of chocolate pie when he got home from school on Monday. Here he is doing a dance - victory really is sweet!
