Just one of Michal's many talents.

Thawing out.


We're on Amelia Island in Florida this week for Spring Break.


We arrived today and it's sunny and in the 70s.


Just heaven.


We were here last year for Spring Break so the girls knew exactly what they wanted to do first -- get fudge at a little shop at the resort. 

Chocolate mint fudge. 

They said it was to celebrate their 10 1/4 birthday today.  How could I argue with that?


Here's to a week of warm weather and sunshine . . . and lots and lots of fudge.

Martin Luther King Day

The girls didn't have school today so we headed downtown to the Field Museum.



We saw Sue the T. Rex, Egyptian mummies, priceless gems, a hall of jade and exhibits on Africa and the Americas.



We had a great day and on the way home we saw this building with windows lit up to spell "MLK."

The perfect end to our day.

Ringing in the New Year


Walking on the beach on Coronado Island on New Year's Eve.  One of the prettiest places in the world.

The Gingerbread Soiree


Five years ago I thought it would be fun to have a little gingerbread house decorating party for the families in the twins' club I belong to. It quickly went from "a little get together" to a big event for more than 100 people. We jokingly started calling it "The Gingerbread Soiree.


The event is now an annual tradition. Michal and I went alone this year because Kenna was a little under the weather so she and Eric stayed home. Michal helped set up for the event, watched the little kids whose moms were also helping set up, and had a posse of little girls who followed her everywhere she went during the event.

She was absolutely thrilled!
