The first year we had to cut ice to do the plunge. All the other years there wasn't any ice or snow. At least I get a sweatshirt out of it if I give them $100.00 and the satisfaction of doing something for the kids I teach.
We are having our polar plunge tomorrow morning since they are having our NY state games here this week end.It should be a cold one with temps in the 20's , snow & winds up to 50 MPH.

I baked heart shaped cut out sugar cookies last night & iced them...some pink, some white, some white w/ red sprinkles & some pink w/ cinnamon sprinkles. I'll bring some to my parents, and I'll bring a plate full to a couple friends & of course I'll save some for my hubby. But just for my hubby I'm going to make a strawberry cake in my heart shaped cake pan. I was going to make a nice meal, but then I remembered I won't be home on Valentines night & neither will my hubby ~ we sponsor a bowling bash every year & it is this Saturday, so I'll be at my friends house cutting meat & cheese & making jello shots & my hubby has to bowl that night. Romantic, huh? HA!! Last night I made a dump cake in that heart pan, so we have to eat it all before Valentines day so I can use the pan to make a cake. Oh darn!

We are planning on something but nothing big. We have a gift card to a local restaurant. We're going to to that....just because! Isn't that the best reason of all?
