Had a fun day with Ashleigh. Went to the craft show, again, and got a beautiful picture. It's even framed and hanging on my wall! Also got a bracelet for A's b-day next week. She got LOTS of fudge and a few cards. Later we went to Sole Obsession where my friend Tami, www.theladyinthestonehouse.blogspot.com, who was working there for the day. We tried on copious amounts of shoes!! A girls dream! Took home two pair! (Paid for them first, of course!)
Tyler is at a Halo party down the street and Ashleigh is at work so hubby and I ate dinner in front of the TV and watched basketball. We know how to party! We even had ice cream!!
Good Night! Holly

My brother-in-law, Brad, always gets things going and this year is no different. Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Brothers, Sisters, Grandma and Papa all participate. We had some technical difficulties this year, so I had to pick for my kids-sorry guys!
I've decided that I need to set up a special "Chick" site, as there are not enough details on any of the sports sites. I prefer to know the important things, such as location, team colors and mascot, the word to the fight song, how many cheerleaders and are they any good (the cheerleaders), weather, etc.You get the picture. Alas, I could find none of this info so I had to report to plan B.
This involved looking at each teams ranking,location, league...all the boring stuff that the guys look at. I had to create an edge so I decided to see if they had a #12 on the team, (my favorite number), or a Tyler ,( my favorite player). This process takes quite a bit of work and just a few web-sites!!!
With Ashleigh, I picked all the teams, within reason, that are local to us (West Coast), or places she'd like to visit! Not necessarily the best picks, but she could sweep with the odds!
With Tyler, I went will all the highest seeds, because that's what he would probably do!
No money involved, just bragging rights and the chance to trash talk!!!!
I'll keep you posted on my teams, but right now I don't even remember who I chose!!

It's here!!!!! The new Farm Chicks book arrived today!
My best friend, Lynda , aka Betty, Burke gave me a note for Christmas this year, saying that I would be getting the book as soon as it came out and today was the day. It is Beautiful!!! Stunning!!!! I read it cover to cover in one sitting. The pictures are lovely and there are tips, recipes, ideas, history and lots of projects! It's very inspiring.
I've been going to the Farm Chicks show for 3 years now and it is so much fun! Can't wait to go back. Thank you, Lynda dear, for this delightful keepsake!

I was going to go to Spokane tomorrow, but a winter advisory is in effect for the mountains and chains are required. I hate chains.
The State B Basketball tournement is over there and I wanted to go and watch the Davenport Gorillas. Such memories of my youth at those games. Mostly of looking at all the cute boys with my best friend and cousin, Annette. We'd get all prettied up and flash our brightest smiles and flirt til the lights went out! Oh, the fun we had!!! Now the children of these boys are playing and it would have been fun to take a stroll down memory lane. Maybe the weather will improve tomorrow! Go Gorilla's!!

Who are these children? Was I ever really this young? DH and I celebrated 24 years yesterday! Where has the time gone? Seems like only yesterday that we were celebrating our wedding! It was a wonderful day, and it has been a wonderful married life! I am so blessed to have this man in my life. We don't make too big of a deal out of our anniversary, we try and celebrate every day, but we did go out for dinner last night. Monday is not the best day for big plans!!!

I've been getting over a cold and really have nothing exciting to report. I didn't even make it to church with my family today. My husband and son have been busy making new cupboards for my pantry.We had a leaky shower, back in November, and are still waiting to have all the wood floors replaced. My pantry is an odd shape and didn't have a lot of storage, so my Brilliant husband came up with some ideas. He cut into the walls on the sides of the pantry and put shelving between the studs. He stained and trimmed it out and it looks amazing. Now he is building furniture-like shelving and cupboards to go on the back wall. Everything is built and primed, but I need to sand and paint. I'm really excited to have it all done and will post pics as soon as I learn how!!! The pantry innards have been in my bedroom for 4 months now and I am definately looking forward to getting them back where they belong.
I'm thinking salmon for dinner tonight. So easy, so good with Aunt Lisa's salmon sauce. Absolutely to die for! I will take pictures and hopefully post someday and add the recipe! I never seem to have any trouble coming up with the main dish, it's the side dishes that give me grief. Does anyone else have that problem? When I do come up with one or two , they seem to go with the main forever. I have no flexablility! So,,,, tonight will probably be fettucini alfredo, from the box, and a salad or vegetable. That's it, no more, no less. Sounds pretty boring, but it's a family favorite!
