Over the years I have learned that most people who watch the Super Bowl are really watching it for the commercials. Last night, there were a few commercials that really got me hooked. Below are three of my favorite. And don’t get me wrong, both pistachio and Doritos had great commercials this year, too, they just didn’t make my top three.

What were your favorite commercials this year?

First and foremost, a very merry Christmas to all! A big family tradition for me is cozying up next to the fire, with the pup playing and the family all in one room, watching holiday movies. So far today, we’ve already watched three: Holiday Inn, I’ll be Home for Christmas and Window Wonderland. The following are a few movies to watch during the holiday season.

Die Hard

I’ll be Home for Christmas

Love Actually

Christmas Vacation

Home Alone

White Christmas

Charlie Brown Christmas


Santa Claus

Jack Frost

Before the day ends, I trust that my family will have conquered this list! From the list above, we have two left. Christmas is kind of a big deal in this household. With that,  I will leave you to enjoy your family and your holiday traditions.

Here’s yet again another guest blog post. I like to have guest posts featured by different people to show new perspectives, outlooks and different personalities. Get ready for it! Without much introduction, the following is a guest blog post by the one and only: Ann Marie! Most of you know her as Ann Marie, while others know her as Mrs. Franck. But, even less get to refer to her as mama! Without more of an introduction, I will let her take it away!

Hi! This is “Mom” as I am sometimes called or Ann Marie as Kendal so lovingly refers to me. I am honored to be the guest blogger today, or maybe not so much since Kendal informed me that she made a promise to herself to write a blog each day for a year and it sounded like she ran out of things to say…if one can actually believe boomer

Kendal mentioned how totally worn out Boomer looked as he sprawled out under the Christmas tree after he came in from supervising Joel’s shoveling after the big storm.  In case you aren’t aware, Boomer loves to be outside, especially in cold weather. Winter is his favorite season especially when it snows. Often it is hard to get him to come back in the house as he loves to make dog angels in the snow and run through the snow as it flies out of the snow blower chute. Supervising Joel as he snow blows is Boomer’s number one job. Sometimes the most demanding job is being the sidekick!  So is being sneaky enough to scope out each present that Kendal placed under the tree and discerned that none of them are for him. I sure hope that Kendal told Santa Paws that Boomer will be waiting patiently for his present come Christmas Eve.  An early Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night from me (and Boomer).
