Ever since we got married, Matt has wanted to watch the Superbowl at home. But every year, we get invited to at least one party, and we have always gone. It was just easier to go somewhere else. Until you have 2 kids. Then it's easier to host your own Superbowl party. So that's what we did this year.
We invited my brother and sister and their families, and we had a great time!
Emily was so excited that Rivers was coming to our house. (We may have bribed her with it for 5 days before he came to get her to do things...)
Everyone brought yummy food.
And before the game started, we predicted what the score would be at the end of each quarter. The closest person got a prize for each quarter. John pretty much won every time. (Although at halftime, it was a 3-way tie between him, Matt, and Mystie.)
The prizes were: 1st quarter: football brownies. 2nd quarter: California Baltimore raisins. 3rd quarter: Rice a Roni (the San Fransisco treat!) and the final prize was a Superbowl ring pop and hat, which John won.
I really could care less about the Superbowl, but I had fun hosting and coming up with the prizes (and eating all the yummy food). The raisins were inspired by Emily because I was asking Matt what color the Ravens were and Emily said, "The raisins are black, Mom!" Ha!
