A Little Pre-Game Celebration

Ben commented to me today that he hasn't been this excited about a Packers Game since we were in high school.  I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that he has an outstanding bet with a Vikings fan coworker that would result in that particular coworker coloring his hair green if the Packers make it to the Super Bowl.  

Anyway, today we went to the grocery store to pick up some football game necessities...mainly Sprecher Root beer (thankfully we are all stocked up on Chex Mix).  We checked out the bakery for some festive Packer goodies, but seeing as we are in the heart of Vikings territory, our only choice was Packers and Bears cupcakes...CO-MINGLED IN THE SAME PACKAGE--ACK!  THE HORROR! 

So, being the over-the-top football fanatic that I am, I took it upon myself to create some chocolate green and gold Packer cupcake goodness:  
And, then we tried them out tonight after dinner.   

 Ok, so Olivia didn't get to partake, but she still looked mighty cute watching us all eat ours!

Or whatever....
