Game Night

We have a pretty strict rule in our house about eating as a family around the table. So any deviation from that norm is a huge treat. We like most Americans last night watched the game. We decided to make it extra special with a carpet picnic. Mark loves picnics and we do them often in the summer. So when he heard about an indoor picnic he was pretty thrilled. We gathered our supplies. Homemade Stromboli, chips and dip and cookies (Oh yes it was healthy here last night) and gathered round the blue tube. (There may have been a glass or two of that tan elixir of life around too.) It was so fun. Mark asked if we can do it again tonight. I think it was a hit.

Me thinks a family movie night might be instituted in this slice of heaven.

Some one forgot to tell Jason which teams made it to the Superbowl this year.

On another note: My favorite part of the Superbowl is the commercials. But I found them to be lacking this year. Only one made me laugh. The Dorito one with the snowglobe near the beginning was funny. I love me some slapstick humor. What about you? Did you think any of them were any good?

I see you have the table cloth on the floor. Smart woman! We used to have this kind of picnic in the winter just for a change too. Makes for fun doesn't it?

Now that looks like fun...I think that creating a new family tradition is a marvelous idea.

I have been trying to leave a comment for a couple days now, but each time my phone rings or I get sidetracked...Super Bowl was fun, Phee loves football, during some of the lame commercials we switched over to the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet which is always too cute and a big hit with Phee Phee :) Looks like you all had fun too! Love the pix :)
