Big and little Steeler madness

Terrible towels were waving, fingers were orange and jerseys were sported as the crazy Steeler crew in our house kicked off the 2008 football season.

And while he'd never admit it, I'm of the belief that Jason enjoyed seeing Trace in his new Steeler jersey more than he did watching the game. I'm now wondering if I stocked the kitchen with chips and Cheetos, had the (root)beer chilling and exited quietly, if they'd even know I was gone for a few hours.

Note: For anyone even wondering, no, we do not serve minors. An empty (plastic) beer bottle is a thrilling acquisition when you're 1 1/2 years old, though.

P.S. Today I'm thankful for:

  • Trace's new little boy haircut (and the fact that he sat still for the clippers used in the process).
  • that it's only her grapes that Alysse bounces across and off of the table while giggling.
  • Alivia's beauty - inside and out.
  • Alena's understanding and occasional use of manners.
  • a Steeler dad who asks to have his picture taken with his resident groupies.
