Presidential & Sports News
So, you just thought that all of the votes had already been counted and tallied for president. Nope...there was still one more important race to call...
And I'm proud to announce that Delaney is now the Student Body President of her middle school! I greeted her at home yesterday after school with the strains of "Hail to the Chief" behind her and we've been referring to her as Madame President since her victory!
She won by a landslide; she got more than 200 votes! (There were five people running, so I think it's quite an accomplishment...although I guess I'm a little bit biased!)
This was one of her campaign posters...
And some other great news to go along with Delaney's win is that her friend, Jaelyn, won as Secretary/Treasurer! (Jaelyn is my next-door-neighbor and daughter of the uber-cool blogger Adrienne!)
Woo Hoo for Delaney and Jaelyn!! Now let's just hope that they can bring change to their school...bridge the divide between individuals...and keep taxes low! (LOL)
On other news, which is equally (well, almost as equally) exciting...
Have you heard that my Alabama Crimson Tide is #1 in the country??? I can't believe that I haven't posted about this yet, but with the election and other cool stories I wanted to share I somehow let this amazing news pass by.
Alabama is #1 for the first time since 1992, when they were ranked there after winning the national championship over Miami (to put that in perspective, that was the same year McKenna was born!). The last time we were #1 in the regular season was in 1980. I don't know about you, but 1980 is a LONG time ago. Shoot, I was Delaney's age myself back then (and wearing leg warmers!).
We are all so excited about the possibilities that are in front of us for the rest of the season, and it has been so such a pleasant surprise (we really thought this sort of season would get here for us in another year or two!). But, it's not going to be easy the rest of the way!
(although with our monster offense line creating holes like this for freshman phenom Mark Ingram, we may be a-okay!)
We have LSU this weekend, which will be HUGE!!! (So, all of you, please get your crimson gear on and start practicing your "Roll Tide" yell. We're gonna need you this Saturday at 2:30!)
I hope that all of you are having a fantastic week. (It has gone by super-fast for me, for some reason.) Today, I'm working on my "A Week in the Life" album...and hoping to do some Christmas shopping. Should be a good day!
Love you all and See ya soon!
