Jacob spent the day fishing and paint-balling with some buddies, and Elizabeth was invited to go with some friends to the ballet and dinner in Savannah. Nancy stayed home & cleaned house, so we were all beat Saturday night.

Yesterday afternoon we took Bernie to Sam's Club to pickup some supplies for the store. That's about it for my weekend. I hope to work on the car some more this week.

I hope y'all have a great day!


I love your new Avatar, Brad !!!! xo

Hey everyone! How's it going? All is well here. Just enjoying the day/evening with DH and the kids. I head back to work tonight, for the week.

What's new with everyone? Nothing new here. DH and I enjoyed the concert and the time we had away. It was nice to just be the two of us, for a day or so. When we picked up the kids, they had really missed us, as we missed them.

Not a lot going on this week. Both of the kids have Valentine's Day parties at preschool and daycare, so I have to make stuff for that and help them with their Valentine's.

On Friday, EA has breakfast with her grandparents at preschool. That should be very enjoyable for her. She's very excited about that.

Oh and have I mentioned DS has hit the terrible twos early? He is ALL boy!!!! 😄

Well, off to do dinner! Talk to you guys later. Remember, for any of you who do celebrate it, tomorrow is Fat Tuesday, so eat up, for Lent starts on Wednesday! God Bless and keep smiling!

I love the Bellagio! I could stare at the water show all day and night. It is especially pretty at night! Watching it on TV does not do it justice, you have to see it live! I am glad you got to experience that. Did you ever go see Love at the Mirage? I HAVE to get back to Vegas sometime to see that!!!

I hope you got a chance to see that Bocelli and Elmo song I posted. It's, Time to Say Goodnight (of course the original song is "Goodbye", it's cute!) I love that song too, the real song and the kid version with Elmo! =)

I have heard of that guy! I definitely believe in that 100%! I should read the book sometime.

Tee he he!!!!
That is hilarious about the accent!!! The Venetian is absolutely beautiful! I never road the gondola ride but I have seen the boats go through there.

I remember when the Luxor first opened and how amazing it looked inside. They had a boat going through canals and we rode on it a few times. Then we went back years later, they took the boats out and remodeled the inside. It's still pretty but I don't think it's near as impressive as it was when it first opened.

I also took pictures of the hotel New York New York when it was under construction. It was just a torn up mess and my family wondered why I would want a picture of it. I also took pictures of Paris while under construction one year. That one is pretty too! I told them it's kind of neat to come back later and take more pictures of it finished, before/after thingy! I think it's kinda cool! lol... We did go back, that New York New York is nice and even rode that coaster around a few times. Paris is nice too!
