super bowl birthday

Here's a little early February trivia for you (at least as it pertains to my family, anyway). On February 6, 2011 Scout was baptized at Braddock Street United Methodist Church in Winchester, VA. Later that evening the Green Bay Packers went on to win Super Bowl XLV in the great state of Texas. Exactly one year later--February 6, 2012, in case I lost you--Tillie was born in the great state of Texas. I'm not saying that any of these things have anything to do with each other, but I'm not saying they don't. Either way, we kind of think of Tillie as a Super Bowl baby since her birthday falls during that blessed first week in February.

This year the Green Bay Packers were not in the Super Bowl, but we decided to have a party at our house anyway and tie in an early birthday celebration for Tillie (because no one at the party really cared whether the Patriots or the Seahawks won). I made a fancy cake--the same one as her first birthday since it was such a hit with the little guys--and the adults got buzzed on whiskey cocktails while the kids got buzzed on sugar. Every Super Bowl party should have a fancy cake.
