My mom is so cool

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people,
promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~Tenneva Jordan

I had the best time this week watching my mom teach a cooking class! She is the most amazing person in the whole world and I love her so much. It is such a privilege to be able to not only call her mom but to also call her friend. I am blessed!

Valentines Day

Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life,
love gives us a fairytale!

I borrowed a tradition from my dear friend SueKeeney after Terry and I got married. On Valentines Day (or as close to that day as possible) I serve the fanciest, specialist, most awesome dinner in the whole wide world to my husband and kids. Everyone gets a present and we use our snazziest dishes...cloth napkins and all! After all Valentines day is about love right? And who do I love more in the world than Terry, Brandon and Jenny?! It's become a really special and much anticipated event in our home. This year is no exception. I absolutely love doing this for my family. Valentines Day has become one of my favorite holidays!

Super Bowl

Super Bowl!!!

We had the best time getting together for Super Bowl Sunday at my mom and dad's house. There was of course wayyyyyy toooooo muchhhhhh food but we managed to polish most of it off!

Oh, and did I mention that my parents bought the biggest TV in the history of the world? It was a huge (and I mean HUGE) surprise to all of us when we showed up. So fun to watch the game when the players were almost life size!
