Here We Go

Here We Go Steelers, Here We Go, Pittsburgh's Going To The Superbowl!"

Ok let me go back to yesterday.....

My husband picked up Ben from school and around 4:15 he handed me a note from Ben's teacher. The note said that she was having a last minute Superbowl Party at school the following day and it would be great if I can contribute to this party! We had to leave for hockey practice at 5:00, so I only had 45 minutes to run to Walmart to get these supplies for the party! I knew that I could have gone after practice, but I actually help teach the kids to play, and knew that I couldn't go to the store smelling all sweaty and nasty.

Sidenote: The way you smell after playing hockey is the worst smell possible. I knew I could not go out in public smelling that way! ;)

Anyway, this is what I grabbed at the store. I'm not a football fan, so hopefully this will work for a Kindergarten Superbowl Party.

Have you seen these cute football shaped Little Debbie's Brownies? They are sooo adorable and very tasty!
I also bought black and yellow Pittsburgh Steeler tortilla chips! Yes, we have our own Steeler Tortilla Chips that comes out this time of year.
And of course I had to get Steeler napkins and plates!
And then I went to the party store. I wanted each of the kids to have something that was fun and something that they could take home with them. So I bought black and gold Mardis Gras beads! I'm just hoping that they do not know the real use of Mardis Gras beads or we may have a huge problem on our hands! lol ;)
I also came up with a little game for the party. At the party store I bought a little penalty flag, which is like a weighted type of flag. I thought it would be perfect for playing either hot potato or used to throw at a target like a garbage can.

People in Pittsburgh really take their football seriously...it's like a religion! I'll blog more about that tomorrow. But yesterday being Thursday was crazy with people rummaging through all of the Steeler merchandise at Walmart and the party store! It was nuts!

Will you be watching the big game on Sunday? Who are you rooting for?

Chick you got all those kids in the mood to play and have fun! I need to be in that class.
Rooting for Steelers but my hometown is for Packers cause Eric Walden who is on Green Bay is from here so they have big writes up in paper about him.

Girl, I am living in the midst of Wisconsin. I live with a genuine Green Bay Packers fan. I have had to go to the Packers hall of fame on tours. I endure football all year long. Vince Lombardi is quoted daily, here in this house. I have to admit he was a very wise man.

It is my opinion, though, that until they start having parties for things like ballet, orchestra, art openings, in kindergarten, I would tell those teachers to make some cupcakes and call it a day!

Smiles to you, my new amazing friend. You do go all out!!! I tip my hat to your creativity!!!
