Scenes from my phone camera

Talking to me 5 seconds prior to this.  I left the room and did not hear her... Not even her room!

Happy Easter

 Pete caught some pictures on his phone

 The Sunday school classes added flowers to the cross.
The girls were very proud of their flower cross.
So I was left with literally 5 min to get dressed after Easter baskets, feeding these two lovelys, dressing them, and doing hair.  Then the older one decided while I am not yet dressed that she wanted to have Easter pictures taken outside.  When I said not now but maybe later she began the pout.

Audrey began to pose

So I zoomed in on her as Celia persisted with her pout

Yup, cuteness on all levels
The older one could be cute but she chose not to be.

A little bit of cute peeking through because she thought her sister was funny.
By the way do you notice the look of love for her cat?

The girls made out quite well with their Easter baskets.  The bunny was heavier on toys then candy this year.  Audrey got a dreamlite and some awesome sinkers for the pool along with a toothbrush that can't tip over.   Celia got a dohvinci kit, crazy loom watch craft, Peter Pan (book), and a toothbrush that does not tip over.  There were some candy treats included too.

Aunt Vickie's Hats

My Mom came back from her visit with my sister with hats that she made for the girls.  They really liked them.  But no offense to my sister, I hope that we have no use for them until next Winter!!

So we have done a lot in the past month.

We had our first big snow storm, about 10 inches.  That week school was closed on Monday due to icing and then everyone went about normal business Tuesday until the late afternoon.  In the late afternoon came the freezing rain that brought a 2+ hr commute home for Pete.  So everyone had a 2 hr delay on Wednesday.  Then.. 10 inches that Thursday and the snow did not end until the evening and was brought by a deep freeze.  So school was also closed Friday.


Celia went back to school for four days and then had Spring break this week!  We started off her spring break with a trip to the zoo with friends.  I have never taken the girls to the Philadelphia Zoo and they had a great time.

I drove Celia to Grandma and Grandpa's house this past Monday and left her there from Tuesday (Audrey and I spent the night Mon) until Thursday.   Celia had a wonderful time.  Lots of memories made with her time spent away from home.  She got to see Paddington and went to the Science factory.  There was a tea party for grandpa thrown in there too.

Celia arrived home just in time for Spring or rather snow…..  We were supposed to get around 1 to 3 inches, leaning more along the lines of 1 inch.  I think we got at least 4 inches but it stuck mainly to the grass and not to the roads until later.  The girls had a blast playing in it.  Now I feel safe to say that the snow is done.  It is officially Spring and it will be 60 by the end of the week!

 And just to share.. She was asked to brush her teeth and this is how I found her.
Notice the foot on the book.

Happy Spring

Warm breezes, flowers blooming, it is beginning to look a lot like…

Oh wait, there's a flower

Yes, our first day of Spring arrived with snow.  The girls had a great time playing in our LAST snow storm for a very long time.

Celia, the insurance sales rep

After watching tv

Celia: Mommy, are you happy with your insurance?

Me: Uh, what?

Celia: Do you think your insurance does a good job?

Me: What???

Celia:  Well State Farm seems like they do a good job, maybe you should consider that.

Me:  you like the State Farm commercials? 

Celia:  Their ok

Word to State Farm, apparently you just have to do "ok" to sell to a 7 year old
