hbokor said...

My plans on the Big Game Day are simple......keep the kids out of the living room so that they do not interupt the men watching the game!!!!! So, I am the babysitter!!! I will keep tabs on the game depending on who's playing. I would also be in charge of making sure there are plenty of snacks, like chips and dip, soda, and hand grabbing foods. It may not sound fun, but I actually do not mind doing it!! Thanks for the awesome giveaway.
