Not much of anything

Not much to post tonight.  Even though we have birthdays and Valentine's Day in February, it still manages to be a quiet month.  Ever since working in a restaurant I don't enjoy going out to eat on Valentine's Day, so that is a day I usually make a nice meal, or we splurge for delivery.  This year I made a delish meal of chateaubriand with a port wine gravy, garlic mashed potatoes, and an array of vegetables.  I feed the kids earlier, and we had a nice peaceful meal.  Sean brought home dessert for us all.  Special cookies for the boys, cannoli's for me and Mom, and chocolate covered strawberries.  They tasted so yummy with the Verdi we were drinking.  

This weekend has been pretty busy.  I am getting ready for my baby's 3rd birthday!  I can't believe he will be 3 next week.  Gosh, I can close my eyes and see him laying on the bed in his huge hospital undershirt, just sleeping.  What a sweet boy.  We are having a big construction machine party, and he requested his machine to be orange.  So Mommy is happy to oblige and make him an orange machine cake.  It isn't quite done yet, but it looks pretty good.  I am far from being Duff, but I do pretty well, with all the extra challenges and obstacles I have.  

I'm off to bed, but I will get some photos up of the party and cake in the next few days. Until next time....

Cherished Memories

Wow, it's been over a week since I have posted. We have been pretty busy both during the week and on the weekends.  Last weekend I celebrated my 39th birthday, I mean 29th.  LOL  That would be nice, but I would want to be where I am now, just 10 years younger.  On Saturday I went to lunch with my good friend, her kids, and Alexander.  Sean Jr. was busy with his Aunt most of the day. Him and Aunt Nanci threw me a wonderful Little Mermaid birthday party on Sunday.  He arranged for games, dinner and decorated a beautiful cake.  He even tried to tell me lies so I would think we were going out to McDonalds for dinner.   He is some wonderful little guy. It was a great weekend spent celebrating my birthday. It was a very good birthday, and it makes me look forward to turning 30 next year.

Fun with food

It was a busy, fun weekend for us, that included a birthday party and a Super Bowl party. It was a quiet Super Bowl party this year, I think we had 14 people, so that makes things easier, and l got to see the game and BRUCCCEE  at halftime. No such luck with getting tickets today though.  So of course the kids are bored today, after being busy for the past few days. So while I caught up on some stuff, they kept themselves busy, but that doesn't last long. By that point the last thing they want to do is sit still to eat lunch.  So on days like this, we have fun with food.  My kids love making faces with their lunch. I know, Mother always said don't play with your food, but I enjoy playing with mine, shouldn't they?  The pictures are all out of order, but I couldn't get my post to cooperate with me.  Alexander turned his face into a sandwich, but under that is a set of eyes, nose and ears!  So cute.
