What if?

But what if the Earth's saddest day and gladdest days weren't three days apart?

Super Bowl 48

Ok folks, it's the Monday after the Super Bowl and all I see on any news cast or media outlet it information and replay videos of the Super Bowl ads that came out last night during that (pitiful, am I right?) game.  There were obviously a few favorites:
As always the Budweiser commercials are a crowd-pleasing favorite.  This year two stood out with the sweet simplicity of puppy love and patriotism for our country and those who have served so unselfishly (Follow the links under the pictures to view the commercials).

What were your favorite commercials from last night?  What did you think of the game?
Were you embarrassed for Peyton?  Thrilled for the Seahawks?  Happy for Derrick Coleman who was told never to play because of his "disability?"  I would love to know your thoughts!

The Great Comeback Kid

Friends, it's been entirely too long!  As of today, January 22, 2014, I have decided, DECLARED, determined that I am going to be more DEDICATED to my blog this year!  It is my goal to post (AT LEAST) once a week this year and I need your help sticking to my goal (what's a goal without accountability right?)!  If I forget get too busy to post, please shoot me a message (You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram)!  I love accountability,  I need it, and I crave it!  Just like if you see me eating a Double Cheeseburger and Large Fries with a Warge Sweet Tea (right, Tracey Jones?), STOP ME! 

Please know that there is so much exciting stuff going on in our lives since my last post!  The kids are now in 3rd and 2nd grades at Alpha and doing A-MAZING (as in all As for all 3 kids) and I am working on my 3rd year at WVMS still teaching 6th grade reading and trying (praying) to figure out all things Common Core.  Chad is now teaching World History at the Jefferson County Freshman Academy and continues to coach football there.

We have started going to a new church and are really loving being involved.  For the past 7 months, we have been attending Manley Baptist in Morristown and felt lead there for several reasons:

 #1 our kids and I are in school here in Morristown and being with our peers JUST MAKES SENSE. 

#2 We were invited by our kids Upward Soccer Coaches!  These two sweet young men had encouraged Cooper and Brody to join them at church because they were helping lead the Kids Worship Program!

#3 Our dear friends, Kenny and Meghan Cobble had been going to MBC for about a year, had joined the church and were loving it!

The school bell is about to ring and I must go to bus duty (on one of the coldest days ever of course), then it's backpacks and dinner and Awanas!  More soon - I promise!
