Super Todd III

On Super Bowl Sunday, we had some friends over to celebrate Todd’s birthday and to watch the Super Bowl.  We call this celebration “Super Todd”.  ;)  This year was Super Todd III because it’s the third time we’ve had this party, combining Todd’s birthday and the Super Bowl (They always seem to happen at the same time.)

Before the party began, we got a visit from AJ & Meera and the kids.  They were going to come to the party, but AJ’s grandma passed away, so they needed to go spend some time with AJ’s grandpa.  So they came before the party to visit.  I love spending time with them, they’re one of my favorite peoples.

We picked up our catered food from Chile Peppers around 2:30, and the party started at 3:00.  The spread included flour and corn tortillas, beans, three meats (chicken, carne asada, and carnitas), cheese enchiladas, and rice.

Also lots of fresh-made chips.

And hot sauce, sour cream, guacamole, and pico de gallo.

I made some Crunchy Asian Broccoli Slaw, which was a big hit at last year’s Super Todd!

The food was fabulous, but we enjoyed the company of our friends who came the most.

Monika, who made Todd a popcorn cake!  It was like a rice krispie treat, except made with popcorn.

I pulled out the Super Todd banner that Todd’s sister Amy helped me make last year.

At half time, the birthday cake came out!  Yum!  It was a lemon cake with cream cheese frosting from Nothing Bundt Cakes.  It was a hit!

And after watching Madonna vogueing in the half time show, Shannon and I can’t help mugging for the camera as well, ha ha!

It was such a wonderful time with friends.  So thankful to have friends to celebrate Todd’s birthday together.  We would love to continue the “Super Todd” tradition every year!  :)

  1. Looks like Todd had a Super Happy Birthday!

    Looks like you can vogue much better than Madonna. (I'm sorry, but she made me feel old.)

    And..

    Looks like I'll be shopping for a super cool mexican condiments dish like yours. LOVE this!

  3. Thanks for having us! Since I don't care about the super bowl much, I would much rather celebrate Super Todd.

  4. Thanks for inviting me! I had fun! I'm glad no one was into the game. ;o) BTW the pic of me and Todd looks like he's trying to take it from me and I'm pulling back with both hands. haha
