It Was a Super Bowl

On Sunday, we went to the Maki Family's annual Super Bowl party. And a super party it was! I even wore my "Moose Handsome Player" shirt for the occasion. Here I am at the beginning of the game. Oh wait, is that a rubber band...cool!
Then I noticed all the pretty girls at the party. And lots of beads. It was the New Orleans Saints vs. the Indianapolis Colts, after all. So the Makis decided to go with the New Orleans theme since no one could quite figure out what goes on in Indianapolis besides car racing. Here I am getting crazy with our friend, Janet. Hey, can I have those beads?
Here's our host, Danielle. She made all sorts of New Orleans food, including po'boys, benets, jambalaya and...
...here she is dropping the first of her delicious hush puppies into the fryer. She even kicked them up a notch with bacon and green chiles. Wow, huh?
And check out this shrimp po'boy Danielle and Ian just threw together. Amazing! Ian also made some tremendous hurricanes and mint juleps for the adults to drink and even sent them home with souvenir glasses. By the way, so sorry the Broncos didn't make it to the Super Bowl this year, Ian. There's always next year.
Mimi and Pop-Pop were there, too, of course. Pop-Pop's Steelers didn't make it to the Super Bowl this year either. Sorry, Pop-Pop.
During half-time, I did a little dance to the music of The Who. I don't know "who" they are but they sure did rock!
And I finished off the night playing in Caden's room. He's five and sure does have some awesome big-boy toys, like this slinky!
So the Super Bowl was fun, thanks to good food and good friends. Thanks, Ian, Danielle and Caden, for hosting us. We had a blast!
So Mama tells me that it's Valentine's Day this weekend. We're going to celebrate at Great-Grammy's house with the whole Livingston gang...stay tuned!

Laissez les bon temps roulez - as they say in New Orleans (something like that anyway!) It's always a fun day at the Makis and we really appreciate all they did for this super party! Thanks, Danielle and Ian! Go Steelers!

The louis vuitton handbag is the latest must-have bag to come out of the louis vuitton replica handbags line. When it came out two years ago, despite its hefty price, cheap louis vuitton handbags was sold out in a matter of weeks, days in some locations.
