Tons of food and friends...and the tasting was so much fun! Tina won for the 'white' and Nicole won for the 'red'...! The winners rec'd gift cards! I had so much fun I hope someone else hosts another one soon...:)

Cousin Sleepover Fun...

What a week for the kids...not only did they not have school for a full 5 days in a row...they had their cousin's sleep over from Thursday til THAT is a treat!

Sunday breakfast at McD's playland w. Ryleigh, Collin and Haylee Grub time...

Ry and Haylee show off their rapper side


One word: GIDDY! These 3 girls had such a great time...they sang, laughed and were star struck with G&T...even tho they agreed that this Troy was not anything like the real was definitely worth the trip.
I thought THIS guy was a much better fit for playing TROY

Trying Times...

When I'm down and out, THIS is my FAV prayer ever....and lately I've been saying it daily:

"GOD, grant me the serenity to accept the things I CANNOT change;
The courage to change the things I CAN;
And the wisdom to know the difference!!"

Then....deeeep breaths....

Snowed IN

First w/e in Feb., and DE got hit with another Nor'Easter...up to 2 feet of snow piled us in for the w/e (2nd w/e in a row)...throwing yet another wrench into our w/e plans. But, we made the most of it, and enjoyed good family time! Haylee's school is already closed for tomorrow...AND, we are supposed to get MORE snow Tues night into Wed. I'm sooooo over this stuff!!! Bring on Spring/Summer...sun, sand...makes for a happy girl!

The calm before the storm...Ash and Haylee prepare for school as usual.Snowed in (too windy to be outside just yet), so they decided to build their 'club' where us parents were NOT
can't get out the front door....
Baby it's cold outside...too cold for mama...:)
