Our family tries hard to keep the Sabbath day holy. We attend church, serve our neighbors, write in journals and have family planning meetings. Occasionally, we nap. We do not watch television. It is the day of rest, after all.
But, there are exceptions to that general rule. Twice a year our church services are broadcast worldwide in an event called General Conference. We turn on the television for that. Also, my husband is a huge fan of the University of Georgia football team. Occasionally they play on Sunday. We turn on the television for that.
And, the Super Bowl is held once a year. We don’t watch every year, but this year Young Son’s birthday is on Tuesday, and he thought it would be fun to have a few people over, watch the game and eat party food. Since a person doesn’t turn 15 very often, we agreed.
So, after church we got serious about the party food. There were hot wings, twice baked potatoes, fruit and vegetable trays, stuffed jalapeno peppers and more. Great food for fun times. I should have got out the camera sooner, but all I got freshly prepared was the potatoes. The rest disappeared too fast.
By the second half of the game I was ready to stop eating and sneak a little sewing time into all the togetherness. Football makes me nervous, and I get more so if I watch closely, so instead I worked on a quilt. Big reveal coming soon!
Standard or not, it was a fun family day. Since I didn’t care who won, the game was fun, too. And, a little quilting time thrown in on top. Perfect!
