This is our secret to a low heating bill in the winter.

Birthday pics.

Vanessa getting ready to blow out the candles to her birthday cake. Still can't believe she's 2!

I like to treat the kids to an out of the norm treat on their birthdays...so, after talking Vanessa out of wanting to go to Chuck E. Cheese's she asked to go to McDonald's for ice cream cones. Of course the older kids kind of baited her into asking, but Vanessa was still very glad we went.

My little ladies eating their cones.

Here's the birthday girl going to town on her cone. We all had a pretty big laugh.

Spring Break

We had spring break a few weeks ago. We basically tagged along on one of Jeff's work trips to San Diego. We spent a night in Oceanside and then the rest of the week in downtown San Diego. If you ask the kids what the highlight of the trip was they would say it was the concierge lounge in the San Diego hotel. Since Jeff travels so much, he has wracked up the hotel points and gets access to the lounge when he stays. There is a hot chocolate machine and unlimited drinks. That's what the highlight of their spring break was.

Hanging out at the "royally" hotel. Veronica was very amazed at the hotel and the decor.

Vanessa was loving the beach.

These 3 loved the hotel. Can't you tell by their smiles?
