London 2012!

We are such Olympic junkies around here!  We just love them!!  I cannot tell you how excited we have been for the London Summer Olympics to start!  We're the type of people that have them on all day everyday for the full 3 weeks! So in honor of the opening ceremonies, we planned a fun Olympics party with the Oveson's! Of course we started with traditional British food - Fish and Chips (chicken and chips for our allergy conscious folks) wrapped in newspaper.  It was so yummy!  And for dessert we had a British Trifle.  Yum!  What party is complete without yummy food?
While Mary and I were busy cooking, the boys played Olympics Charades, and built Olympics Lego things.  The only one I got a picture of was the High Jump, but they were all very clever!

Then of course we had to have some girly stuff:) Mary made this darling Olympic head band that we all had to model. And I found these awesome nail stickers!

As for the actual opening ceremonies.....I LOVED them!  The best part was the skit with the Queen and 007 :) So clever and I was amazed at what a good sport the Queen was!  I honestly was shocked that she did it!  I also loved the shout outs to the literary greats that have come out of the UK.  All in all it was an amazing night and I can't wait for the events to start!
