So.. the Super Bowl. I have never been super interested in football and was just happy to hear if our state colleges won a game. Yay. But I got into the spirit of things when Dayle started watching the Oregon Ducks games and then they went to the Rose Bowl. We went to our son's house and.. watched.. them.. lose. THEN.. our NW team - the Seattle Seahawks went to the Super Bowl.. our sons and DILs and 4 grandsons came over for a party and to watch the game. We enjoyed family time, the kids all had fun together, I ordered 4 pizzas and Dayle picked them up. Kristi made a zucchini cake. The game began and we watched all the hoopla.
My sons thought it was hilarious that I was taking photos of the television. :-) And I must apologize for the quality of the images, but you get the idea.
Then the teams, led by their mascots, ran onto the field.. YAY!!
The halftime show was good, Katie Perry came in riding a huge mechanical "lion" operated by men beside the legs - which was actually made here in Oregon. John Legend, Missy Elliot and Lenny Kravitz performed, among others.
We were rooting for the Seahawks - the first score was by the Patriots, and then the Seahawks scored 2 touchdowns and we were feeling good.. then the Patriots got another score.. and near the end were 4 points ahead... and then with a minute to go - we were 1 yard from the goal line and we thought they were going to push through and win.. and then the coach decided for them to pass it and it got intercepted and we... lost... in the last 22 seconds. GAH!!
Our 4 grandsons thought it was great to have all the pizza you could eat. :-) Mike, who is a teenager, reported he ate almost 10 slices. LOL!
The boys were so excited that their cousins and aunt and uncle were coming over. They're getting pretty big.. I wonder how long they'll be able to sit on grandpa's lap?
This is my favorite pizza, Italian sausage, black olive and fresh mushrooms. What is your favorite?
Kristi's cake turned out delicious!
I knitted on my dishcloth through the game and finished it off.
I want to thank Betsy in Spokane WA and Dorothy in Australia - who tested my newborn hat pattern. They both said it was easy to follow and was a quick project, like about an hour! This first one is by Betsy, isn't it cute?
And this cute hat was made by Dorothy and is modeled by her new little grandson! :-) Thanks, ladies! If you want a bigger hat, just continue making the double crochet crown bigger before you begin the continuous shell body.
Last but not least is a photo my daughter Amy took for me of my two granddaughter's real live guinea pigs with the newborn baby guinea pigs I crocheted for them. Isn't this cute?
Well.. time for dinner.. I'm having leftover pizza! :-) I hope you have a great week ahead! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
