Last night we held our First Annual UnSuperbowl Party. I made two pans of Marie's Special Pizza, intending to have plenty of leftovers to take for my supper today ... and we ate it all.  I should say, the boys ate it all. That's the first time that's happened. I guess it's a sure sign they're in the teenage years.

I also made Banana Galettes, which Hannah decried with loud choruses of  "ewwwww!" but were really, really excellent. We ate all of those, too. I mean, they're drenched in caramel sauce and butter. What's not to like? 

(At the Unsuperbowl Party we watched some Dukes of Hazzard episodes. It's the newest family obsession. :))

Sunday's sermon: a timely reminder that the Christian life is a joyful life. I wonder why I couldn't have heard it a few weeks ago, when I needed the reminder, but it was a wonderful reinforcement to my recent thoughts. And oh, there was such joy at the end of the service as we watched a certain baptism. I think there were maybe ten people in the entire room who weren't crying. 

And yes, I wore the hat. When I put it on in the morning I felt a dreadful sinking in my stomach as I realized I felt like I was putting on a costume .... I feel dorky in this hat! But I persevered, and held my head up high and determined that I would wear that hat. And I did. Mom said, "You'll stick out like a sore thumb" and dad said, "No, like a black hat. Do you mind?" And I said, "Who are you kidding -- you raised me!" 

Honestly, with the exception of a Christian heritage, I think one of the best things my parents have given me is the ability to not mind being different.

PS: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will not be released in e-book form because Rowling  wants the readers to, y'know, have the experience of reading the book on paper. *applauds wildly*
