Jennifer’s 40th

All the girls got together tonight and took Jennifer out to Mexican for her 40th birthday.  It was a low key night, but the servers made sure Jennifer got a good ol’ shot of tequila for turning the big 4 OH.  I got a pic at the perfect time….



What Snow?!

I woke this morning to the msg that school was cancelled today.  Yay!  But instead of getting up and looking out the window, I rolled over, turned the alarm off, and went back to sleep.  When I did wake up a little later, this was the scene outside.  Where in the world is the snow!?!?


Disney Bound!!

We haven’t told the kids yet, but Matt and I have been planning a spring break trip to Disney.  We really didn’t know when to tell the kids, but I was doing some researching online and accidentally left it up on the computer.  Chloe saw it later and asked if we were going to Disney.  Matt and I just made up something to throw her off because we wanted to tell Cole and her at the same time.  So tonight while we were cooking dinner, I made some rice krispy treats in the shape of Mickey’s head.  We ate dinner and told the kids we had a special treat for them.  We gave each of them a Mickey treat, and they thought they were fun.  Matt asked them, “Do you know why your mom made you a Mickey shaped treat?”  Cole didn’t have a clue and didn’t care.  He just wanted to eat him.  Chloe looked at us suspiciously and asked, “Because we are going to Disney????”  When we said yes, there was lots of screaming and jumping up and down and chaos.  Saying they were excited was an understatement.  Can’t wait to see their faces when we are there!


Baby Cole

ALL of my friends think Caroline looks just  like Cole.  I think she looks a lot like Chloe’s baby pictures but don’t really see much resemblance to Cole.  So tonight, I looked back on the blog to find a picture of Cole at the exact same age as Caroline…… and oh my word!  They look identical!!!  Here’s the proof…..


Super Bowl

We have been so, so, so, so, so excited about this Super Bowl since Peyton is playing.  We’ve been waiting for two weeks for this game to get here; however, the game sure didn’t go even remotely the way we wanted it.  From the very first play to the last, it was a heartbreaker.  I was so sad for Peyton.  But…. while Matt and I were running around getting our food ready, Cole said he would feed Caroline her yogurt.  I thought we may have been on to something….. until he started giving bites that were way too big for Caroline and instead covering her in yogurt.  Oh well – he tried!



All 3 kids were playing in Caroline’s room with her this evening, and Cole darted into the kitchen telling me Caroline was stuck.  He was laughing, so I knew nothing was wrong.  I went into her room to find her trapped behind her crib.  Her crib is caddy-cornered in her room, so there is dead space behind it…… however, I have no idea how she got back there and got trapped!  I had to move the crib to get to her, but she didn’t seem phased.  And, her older brother and sister were loving it!
