 Can you believe it's the 10th of February?
This month is flying by. Probably because I have been sick for most of the month!
We played hooky from church today in order to rest up. Kevin now has the fever/cold that we have all had for the past few weeks.
Here is a snapshot of our day.
Coffee. Can't start my day without it.

 Egg in a Hole. A Valentine Hole:
Kate's favorite Birthday present from her cousins. Stompezzzz....
Tulips are my favorite.
My Grammy have gotten all of my kids a set of Tiffany china when they are born. 
Yes, it is ridiculous that babies get China. 
They get a plate, bowl & cup of Tiffany china from Grammy. Grammy loves china & it's tradition.
When you are 101 years old, like Grammy, traditions like this continue on.
Each of my kids have had their first "meal" of solids served out of their Tiffany China from Grammy (and then I box it back up to keep it safe)

Then, it was off to my parents for dinner to celebrate my younger sister Rebecca's 29th birthday!
I brought an appetizer....my favorite cheese & crackers:
 The girls made Valentine's cookies with our older sister, Elyse.

Hope you had a great weekend & a great 10th!!

  9. okay i'm gonna have to try that cheese! i love trader joe's fun cheese selections! super fun and easy party food! i usually bring the syrah soaked cheese with the raisin rosemary crackers - if you haven't tried it, do so ASAP! i know you would love!

    We played hooky from church too, kids STILL sick and Erik, too! Love the china tradition (my grandmother bought the first three a silver cup and spoon and since she passed away, my uncle continued it). And oh, how Anna wanted stompeez, but I wouldn't give in! ;)
