The Super Bowl is coming!

The Super Bowl is coming!!!

The Super Bowl is coming!!!

Commercials and half-time shows and snacks, oh my!!!







(it is coming right, maybe I should check on that...)







Me:  Ethan, honey, the Super Bowl is soon, right?  Like this weekend?

Ethan:  uh...not yet Mom.  We're still in the playoffs.  There's a few games....
(insert lots of footbally technical terms and team names and statistics and stuff)
.....and then the Super Bowl.  We're still a couple of weeks away.







Me:  Oh....huh.

Ethan:  Why?






Me:  Well, I made these Super Bowl cookies thinking we'd be eating them soon, 
like in a couple of days.

Ethan:....yeah, I was wondering why you were doing those already but I didn't want to say anything....

Me:......(staring at cookies)






Ethan:  They look great though!  You got the yardage right and everything!
The little people in the stands are awesome!

Me:...(staring at Ethan)






Ethan:  You can just make them again in a couple weeks, right?

Me:....(staring at Ethan....eyebrows raised)






Ethan:...what?

Ethan:....so....can I eat one now?


Thanks for stopping by,

Lizy B

  9. Your cookies are amazing! I have tried cookies like this in the past and failed miserably. It doesn't matter that you made the cookies a few weeks early. Nobody important is playing in the game anyway (yeah, I'm a Ravens fan and I'm kinda bitter.)
