Winter is finally here

We seem to finally be getting some honest to goodness New England winter weather here in mid-January. Not that I want actual winter weather. I was in fact enjoying the mild weather very much. Today we have had a mixture of sleet, freezing rain and snow. I would prefer just straight snow but since I didn't have to go anywhere today the ice is okay. As long as we don't get too much and lose power! Becca should have had school today but it was cancelled because of the weather as was her dance class. Dom wisely chose to work from home today so everyone has been home safe and sound. When everyone is home and we can just hang out and not worry about the weather I don't mind the snow/ice/freezing rain. The weathermen are saying that the cold weather is here to stay. It is supposed to be really cold all week.

Now so you don't think I am total geek rambling on about the weather for my last two posts, onto other news:


I am not a big football fan but I watched the whole game to support my poor husband who was a total wreck the entire time. How they managed to pull it off I don't know but they did. Dom thinks that if they can beat the chargers they'll go to the Superbowl. Let's hope he's right!

We are in the final planning stages of Becca's birthday party. She wanted a Willy Wonka themed party this year so I have been wracking my brain trying to come up with ideas. I made the invitations and they came out pretty cute. For the front of the invitation I color copied a Wonka Bar then inside is of course a golden ticket! Sorry, pics aren't so good. I've got some candy crafts planned. I even found a small chocolate fountain on clearance at Target for our chocolate waterfall! (I love Target clearance! It was only $12.00!!) You should have seen Becca's eye's light up when I told her about the fountain. Instead of a cake I will make cupcakes and let the kids decorate them.
I will post more pics after the party on Saturday.

Wow...Cindy...those invites look so authentic. I wish I had an ounce of your creativity. Chocolate fountain...I want to come too :o)

Huh, on the cold weather...tell my brother na na from his favorite sister. We actually warmed up to 30 degrees today....No more negatives...hooray!

GO PATRIOTS!!! I was sick to my stomach watching the game too. I almost felt like throwing up...I think it'll be Pats vs. New Orleans...we should be golden!

I love the invites... you are so creative.

Hope you are surviving the ice storm. From the news it sounds pretty bad.

As for the Patties.... you can't get much better than that. I, like Lisa, almost throw up once or twice at the end of the game. As I am screaming "he missed it, he missed it" and Reese is running around barking, like actually knew what was going on.

During the Ravens-Colts game I booed Adam Viniteri and Reese started to howl. It was too cute.
