As all normal American families did (or at least the ones in my city), we spent last evening at Buffalo Wild Wings up to our elbows in barbeque sauce and wings, our eyes plastered to the big screen. It was the big Packers/Cowboys game. Even our children could feel the excitement and were yelling up at the screen, "Go Pack! Go Pack!" and Cate would cheer when she saw that one of the guys in green had the ball. She was only half watching though- she had brought along markers and paper and was keeping herself quite happily entertained with her pictures, stopping every once in awhile to look at the TV or ask me how to spell something. Joel was quite content to sit there and eat for three hours. Of course we all know the Packers lost, but it was a fun time anyway. And I'm sure we'll be back there in a couple of weeks despite the 45 minute wait and the deafening noise.

James thinks that the little girl in the picture looks like Cate, herself. So cute!

You've done your job, and you did it well! I'll bet Roger had more than a little to teach them to pick a winner! Love you all! Grandpa Bill

Great. Now even my niece knows more about football than me.

Cate's getting so good at her letters! As far as watching the sports goes...I side with Joel.
