This weekend we will spend our time inside as the temperatures fall and the wind blows. Friday we are free. I have some bedrooms to organize and bedsheets to change. Dinner will be an easy favorite of grilled cheese and soup.
Saturday my bestie Marian comes!!! We love when she comes. She comes every year for Super Bowl and we look forward to it. She plays tons of games and watches all kinds of movies and stays up late talking and laughing. We have Mass in the early evening, and then I think we will go out to dinner before returning home for a movie night. : )
Sunday is Super Bowl Day!!! We will decorate and bake and cook and nap before our company comes to watch the game. My sister Margie and her husband Chris, my mom, and our friends Heather and Dave are joing us to watch and eat and watch. And eat.
I hope you all enjoy the first February weekend with your people doing whatever it is that makes you happy! Now here is a peek at the past week in our country home...
Peyton made a delicious cake to celebrate National Chocolate Cake Day on Friday...
And on Saturday, we celebrated Chinese New Year!
We decorated the table...
Set out the chopsticks...
And ordered the best takeout ever.
Peyton tried a new Chinese cookie recipe for dessert.
They were supposed to have almond extract and almonds on top.
But she substituted vanilla extract and chocolate chips.
And they were good.
My Flynn wore her new coat to Mass Saturday evening.
She loved it!
Well, maybe not at first..
But after she thought about it being pink and all...
She decided it was a keeper.
Because Zulily has a no return policy. : )
She wore it again when we went out to celebrate my beautiful mother's 80th Birthday!
Margie and Chris brought the pretty flowers and festive balloons...
And we brought the delicious Boston Cream Pie made by Peyton, of course, that my mom requested.
My mother is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.
And she was so very happy.
We all were.
Madison and Nicolas even Face timed us during dinner so they could share in the celebration.
Happy Birthday Mom!
The rest of the week brought snow and cold to our part of the world...
And it was beautiful...
Steve estimates we have at least a foot of snow out there!
Thursday was Groundhog Day, and that little guy predicts we will have six more weeks of that snow!
Sounds good to me!
Bring on the quilts, tea, and movies!
Oh...a special shoutout to a very special friend...
Thanks so much for your kind words.
Have a cozy weekend!
