Apparently we are Eagles Fans

As we age, we just don't Party like we used to.  
We used to go to a friend's house, and do the Super Bowl Up!   
Then our kids got older, and we realized it's a School Night.  
Then we realized we actually hate having to wear clothes outside the house past dark.  
Seriously, it's a Lot Of Love for someone that leads me to not be in my jammies at 8 pm.  

So, we've taken to watching the Super Bowl at home.  
We don't traditionally make a bunch of fancy food, we ordered pizza once, but it took like 3 hours to arrive.  This year, I didn't think we cared much about the Super Bowl.  It ended up being the Eagles against the Patriots.  we ordered a Pizza Kit off a friend's son, with a build your own pizza, breadsticks, and cookie dough.  Super Easy!  I'd totally be doing that again.  The only thing we missed most of the first quarter because the TV antenna was being super fritzy.   But after a half an  hour of Eric messing with the Plex channel he created, I gave up, and tried the NBCSports App.  Boom, there it was.  Now, every commercial break, it would fritz out on me for a second, so we only saw about half the cool commercials.  But as it turns out, that was ok.  
It turns out my Kids like football games.  Way to go Opa.  
Sam instantly began rooting for the Eagles, because they wear Green. Of course.
That wasn't surprising at all.  I was rooting against Patriots.  Chris began to root for them too. He asked me why we hate the Patriots.  At first I just said, They Cheat.  But then as the game progressed, they kept giving us reasons to dislike they way they play. All new reasons. 
By halftime, the boys were calling the Eagles, WE.  That's fine, I can be an Eagles fan for a night.  
Usually I root for Colts first, Peyton second (or Eli since Peyton retired).  Everybody else. Meh. 
But yes, I root against Patriots.  They like to push the limits, and not really in a good way. How often when they play did you hear last night, "Well, that's not Technically Illegal"?  I think that's a sign.  
They are like kids.  Actually, a lot like kids.  Tom Brady has Temper Tantrums, and Cries when he doesn't get his way either.  Yes, a lot like the kids.  Frankly, I was impressed by how the Eagles handled themselves at the game, and after.  I love how they Praise God first.  

Chris had to join Justin Timberlake when he started dancing to "Can't Stop the Feeling". 

Are asleep? 
Jacob didn't make it to Halftime.  
He felt a little warm to me, and was curling up, putting his hands under my legs, because I am the "Warmest". 
This morning he woke up with a Fever.

Secret Recipe


A Secret
The Photo of the Day is A Secret.  
While doing my research for my Oil Party next month, I found the Secret Recipe for making the Lavender Lemonade they serve on the Young Living Farm in Mona, Utah. 
I got hit with a whammy of Motivation today. 
I'm wishing of warmer days, planning goals, and plotting schemey schemes for my Oily Career! 
That's my Secret today.

Mysterious Footprints

The Photo of the Day theme is Magic.
What sort of Magical Creature makes this crazy track in the snow? 
I was so confused.

Turns out it was the blowing leaves.

It's not looking good.  
Reading Little Women, and Beth is very sick.  
I have to stay up late to read her through it. <3
The theme for today's Photo A Day is Text.

Thank You For....

Thank You Lord, for Quality Time with my Sweetboys. 

This morning was "Muffins with Mom" a breakfast event at Sam's school. 
Of course, I didn't eat a single donut, Sam and I oinked out on donuts.  
Woohoo!  Beautiful carbs. 

Christopher and I had a Lunch Date after his Band Concert.  
Lots of Quality Time, and a Cheeseburger as big as his head.  
That's all he needed to call it a "Wonderful Day".
I think this picture makes me smile and laugh more than any of the ones I took of the Band. 

This face. 
He told me he needed sunglasses to be in the car. It was Amazingly sunny today.  
He and his friends at school had Pajama day, and then got to go outside and play. 
By the time he got home, he was exhausted, and he didn't even mind taking a nap.  
His sleepy snuggles are the best, but he can also rock the Superstar look.

My Morning View


Everyday my morning view consists of my nightstand.  I have my: Alarm clock (Yes, that is the same alarm clock I got in the 1980s, my first!) my phone (No, I don't sleep with my cell phone, I have a land line, you wanna reach me in the middle of the night, or naptime in the afternoon, call that), my Diffuser (I keep that thing Loaded, but currently it has Thieves in it, since Jacob keeps crawling in bed with me), my Peace and Calming balm, and my Genesis Lotion.   For Christmas Eric got me a Kindle, with a pretty blue flowery case, and so I'm currently reading Little Women.  Lotions and a Book. Priorities Yo.
