Selfie fun on a road trip...
And a super fun visit with Steve's sister Sally and her awesome family.
(I'm talking about you, Greg!)
Flynn and Sally made brownies for dessert and we had the best meal of barbecue chicken, cheesy potatoes, and delicious broccoli. And...we ate outside! In Pennsylvania. In February.
We had the best time visiting and laughing and they even indulged me in my love of retro game shows. We had the best time playing Family Feud!
Two days later reality returned, and we were cozy inside during a rain to ice to snow storm.
Just the norm. In Pennsylvania. In February.
And then this.
You know the Holiday Barbies released every year?
The super fancy ones in the big boxes?
Well, Santa brings one for the girls each Christmas.
The old Mommy thought they were much too special to open and play with.
The more mature Mommy realized that having stacks of unopened Barbies was perhaps a bit ridiculous.
So...Flynn opened her Barbies!
(Except the beautiful one from 2009, the year she was born.)
Apologies to Madison and Peyton for all the years I told you to keep your Holiday Barbie in the box!
We have graduated to using notebooks for practice spelling tests in our little schoolroom.
Wasn't it just yesterday I was teaching a little preschooler the alphabet with our plastic little letters?!
Finishing up with my smoothie of the week...
I blended a frozen banana, a cup of Iced Mocha Coffee, and some nonfat plain Greek yogurt So quick. So easy. So good!!!
Have a great weekend, my friends!
