You're The Cat's Meow

Miss Sydney has a shadow. His name is Uno. These past few months, she is rarely in her bedroom or on the sofa alone. She always takes that extra minute to scratch Uno behind his ears and talk to him.  

Tonight before going to bed, Sophia told me that I was pretty... Sydney added, but Uno is the prettiest. Not sure how I feel about being replaced by a cat, but it is so darn cute to see the two of them together.

On our way home from running errands the other day, I mentioned to the girls that we had to get home in-time for their naps. Sydney said she had to check her calendar to see if it was a nap day or not. (A calendar she made on her own!... Isn't she a smarty-pants.) Here she is in the photo above and below looking at her calendar. ["x's" are nap days and "|||" are no-nap days]

flurrious food

Today we had another taste  HUGE helping of Old Man Winter [I may post some pics tomorrow]. They were calling for blizzard conditions so we remained inside all day. Daddy made the girls pancakes for breakfast. The girls baked a Red Velvet Valentine's cake with dark chocolate icing and sprinkles. For lunch, I made a Moroccan Lentil Chickpea Soup with crusty-buttered bread (Wegmans recipe... my new favorite grocery store). This recipe calls for some lovely, fragrant spices including turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, coriander and cayenne pepper... A Perfect Soup for a cold, snowy day.

While I'm on the subject of FOOD (one of my favorite pass-times), Wegmans opened a store in our area a few months ago. I'm beginning to rely on the Wegmans for planning my menu. They make it so easy by including the recipe, photos, and pictures of the ingredients in their magazine... and the best part? When you walk in the Wegmans store, the display items include the ingredients for the recipes in the magazine. Even better, there are coupons in the magazine for a good-bit of the ingredients. It makes grocery shopping for specialty items EASY. A grocery store that does marketing right!
our sliding glass door is beyond the cake stand... notice all the WHITE!

My winter wish is for Old Man Winter to go slip sliding away. I'm looking forward to Spring!

Stay Warm,

baby, it's cold outside!

A few pics of the weekend snowstorm. It's beautiful, but I'd rather be in the tropics soaking in the sun.

For me, snow is overrated.

Finally Back

This is my longest absence since I started this blog.  It's been a crazy few months with vacation, holidays and birthdays, but more importantly just spending time with the girls and needing a break from the computer/blog for a few months. I'm going to play catch-up this week. I will post some photos from the past couple months and then blog a little bit about our Disney Cruise and Christmas Holiday. I would like to archive this as a book for my girls someday so I am back dating my post in chronological order :)!
