Superbowl Sunday is not an exciting day at our house. I have very little interest in football. The only reason I even know how the game is played was because I was in marching band in high school and after sitting in the bleachers for four seasons of high school football, you start to get a general idea of what's going on even if you spend 90% of the game talking to friends or desperately attempting to warm up your freezing cold hands.
So Daddy went off to a super bowl party at a colleague's fancy house with a giant projection screen and MiniM.E. and LittleL.G. and I stayed home. MiniM.E. stayed home sick from school on Friday, LittleL.G. was right in the middle of the bad cold that had MiniM.E. out of commission and I could feel it coming on (gotta love being cooped up with sick kids in the winter!). BUT we wanted to do something fun since Daddy was doing something fun. So we decided to go out to dinner at MiniM.E.'s second favorite restaurant, Friendly's. Restaurant #1 is Ruby Tuesday's because "you get to pick out your food," but our Ruby Tuesday's closed. Friendly's wins spot #2 for mini cheese sticks and cone head sundaes (which MiniM.E. likes to order and then stare at and let melt...)
It didn't look like it was going to go very well as LittleL.G. screamed the whole way there and then refused to go to sleep even though it was her bedtime, but we ended up having a great time and both kids fell asleep on the way home in the car!
Monday we woke up to a lot of snow and music class and school were closed. Unfortunately it was freezing cold outside so we couldn't go out and enjoy it.
At least we were able to go out last week and play.
Today we're having a quiet day inside because I inevitably caught MiniM.E.'s nasty cold and LittleL.G. and I are definitely under the weather. MiniM.E. is recovering too... so it's going to be a day full of quiet time and Daniel Tiger...
