I am so ready for spring to get here so we can open the windows and get rid of these germs that are making everyone sick. Our oldest daughter has been home all week b/c of the virus that is going around campus. She will hopefully be able to go back this weekend. The high school has told us that they have been sending 10-15 kids home every day b/c of this virus. We just need some warm weather here!!!!
We are having a thunderstorm today. It reminds us of warmer weather:) I love thunderstorms if they aren't too bad :) Most of the snow is gone now. Yeah!!!! Hope we don't have any more big snowstorms. Next week is daylight savings time and soon it will be warmer. We made it through yet another winter-well almost.
Hope everyone is staying well.

This is the finished project of my hubby's entry for the dessert contest. I think he did a great job on it. He spent quite a long time preparing it and taking time to make it look good. We had an issue with the first round. He was impatient and tried to cut the cake w/o cooling but we recovered it and he ended up getting 2nd place. Can you believe that brownies won first????? I was shocked but it was all for fun and his dessert was very good!!!!!!!!!
His reward was this Awesome ribbon. I was very proud of him and his accomplishment.

Girly Comments & Graphics
Tonight we are going to a valentine's banquet for the adults. The men of the church are having a dessert contest. My hubby has entered it and is busy right now making his dessert. The rules are the man must make 99% of the dessert. No help.:) I will post a picture later since there may be someone from church that looks at my blog.hehe:) Have to keep the creation a secret til tonight. I am so proud of him. It is fun seeing him in the kitchen having fun creating a dessert. He even bought a special plate and decorations to go around it. Can't wait til tonight to see what the men make.

This is the game that is being played sooooo much in our home right now. It is really fun for the kids. You have a town that you name, get to own your home and pay a mortgage with "bells" which is your money. You fish and grow fruit trees, meet other animals and can visit the city. You now can get wii speak which allows you to really talk to someone else that is visiting your town. You have to accept the friend and open your town gate but last night our daughter got to talk to 2 people. One from Austin Texas. It was so neat to see it. Technology has come a long way.
