Getting Away

Although we did not take a glamorous trip (like my sister who is landing in the Virgin Islands any minute!) - we did get away. Over President's break we took the girls' up to Minneapolis to visit Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America. When I use to see all the families at the amusement park in the middle of the Mall I alwasy thought, "they're crazy! why on earth would you bring your family to the mall to play"! Now I know. Getting away is important. Getting away is necessary and Dora always makes it more fun for the kids! :)

So worth the mess

Last night Bill and his friend Chris were at the Grammy's! I have not watched an entire awards show for so long, but I couldn't miss this one. I had some sewing to do so I moved my machine onto the dining room table. A mess ensued. Thread, fabric, Good N Plenty's, etc. where everywhere. But it was more than worth it. To watch the show texting back and forth with Bill while he was there was unforgettable. What an AWESOME experience!!!! Thanks Chris!

The little student

Lucy wants to do EVERYTHING that Bridget does - including go to school. She is enamored of Bridget's backpack and decided to model the other day. Unfortunately the bag was bigger than she was ... and down she went! It must have something to do with the backpack being just as big as she is!

This is worth a post. Last Saturday I took Bridet skiing in the afternoon while Bill and Lucy went to the grocery store after she got up from her nap. When Bridget and I got home I looked at Lucy's outfit and said, "Did you take her in that?" "Yep".

I always take her dress off to take a nap and he never put it back on. She was cruisin' the grocery store with tights and a turtleneck on. HA!

I'm not that jealous - I swear...

Well - talk about fly by the seat of your pants. In a matter of 4 hours or so Bill told me he'd been invited to the Grammy's with a friend of his, we booked a plane ticket for him, rented a car, booked a hotel and got some golf course recommendations with the help of my friend Lindsay. I on the otherhand will be home with my two divas...
