Here's a great link to the Superbowl Ads thanks to Eric Keck.

We had a fun football party which culminated in a trip to the Emergency Room with my daughter's friend and team mate, who broke her collarbone during a halftime jaunt to the park. She's 12 and healthy and will likely heal quickly, but Spring Soccer is out, much to the dismay of the entire team (our leading scorer).

Not unlike other Superbowl parties, ours was categorized by tons of food and beer. Neither my husband nor I had planned to be a designated driver on this specific occasion (this is the best part of having these things at your house...) so at the moment of the emergency we recruited one of my son's 16 year old buddies to drive my husband, my daughter and her friend to the hospital where her parents eventually met up with them. My husband and daughter made it home by the end of the 4th quarter. Those of us waiting at home had switched to coffee and lost interest in the game (except for NY Guy who won the 3rd quarter football square (after also winning the 1st and 2nd quarter squares as well - heavy sigh). Upon their return and with great exhileration the 16 year old emergency driver exclaimed, "I always have the best adventures at the Johnson house!!"

A dubious honor, I dare say.

Kim, I can't wait for those days to hit!! It would be a dream come true for Deanna if a friend commented like your son's friend.

Sounds like you might have had a more interactive Superbowl party than some people are used to.

Do you now have bragging rights to the simple statement, "My daughter's friend broke her collarbone at our Superbowl Party?"

Dubious, to be sure.

Keck Family! Oh how I miss you!! Great to hear from you! Hugs all around!

Martin, thanks for visiting! I enjoy your blog and I'm glad you stopped by. My old roomie has moved to England, and I love hearing some of the daily news from you, (she's a new mommy and not very good about keeping us in the news these days -- a bit busy I imagine...).

Patti, a big Hello to you, too! I love hearing of your household adventures as well . Maybe one day we will reflect over a glass of wine (in lieu of dessert (or in addition to...?)

Rulan, as always a pleasure to hear from you. I love your blog -- you are an inspiration!

Quick update on our collarbone patient -- it turns out she broke the collarbone AND 3 RIBS! Not kidding. Unbelievable. One fall. We're currently planning the soccer team movie and popcorn night in her honor with no (absolutely zero) trips to the park!! I'll actually invest in some "crafts" for the girls to work on (it's my "no more broken bones" initiative....). We'll see how long I can keep this group sitting still...

Me an inspiration? You are very kind. Thank you. Careful, you might give me a big head and kiwis with big heads tend to walk funny.

wow, She broke 3 ribs as well? eek. I pray she heals real fast and that the Lord makes her bones stronger than before. All the best for your new craft group.
