Superbowl Fun....

Ah, so another weekend as gone and passed. I can not believe it is already February??? Seriously, where does the time go.....We have just been doing the usual.....I did finally get our taxes done....we had been waiting for Shawn's W2 which of course came on the last day of Jan...Typical I suppose.....I am looking forward to getting our return so we can FINALLY get the girls their bunk beds and bedding......Yep, bunk beds, the cool thing is they look the same when they are separated so if they do not like them bunked then they can have matching beds....I think the beds and new tires for the Suburban (well we had a buy a new tire last week, Shawn ran over a screw, so we only need to buy 3 more) will be our only splurges this tax season, if you could call it that.....the rest of the money will go towards bills and the usual........Since I am only working 7 hours (instead of 80) in March due to budget cuts at WSU....but that will be nice since my mom will be here from March 3rd-17th!....Yeah for Grandma!

This past weekend we had a little Superbowl get together. We got to meet Uncle Joel's lady friend, Jessica. She is awesome and so fun. The girls pretty much smothered her the whole time she was here!.....Dragging her up to the playroom and then back downstairs......it was pretty cute....I would say she passed the girls tests! ;) We also got to meet his friend Edge, super cool guy! "Light Up Carlos" as the girls call him, came over too for the big game.....the rest of his family was sick....Poor guys....Hopefully they are all feeling better today! On a high note for Carlos he did win the Harper Texas Superbowl II....nothing like taking home $50 cold, hard, cash!...

Superbowl was fun, the game was good....and boy did we have a spread of food....Veggies & Ranch, Fruit Kabobs with Fluff Dip, Wings, Capt n Crunch Chicken, Jalapeno Sliders, Homemade Black Bean dip, Jalapeno Crab Dip, Fruit Salad, Salami+Cheese+Crackers, Choc Chip Cookie Cake, M&M Cookie Bars, and Peanut Butter Swirl Chocolate Brownies (1st time I have made homemade brownies, SOOO GOOD!)......I am sure I am forgetting something....oh well....It was good....I think I ate WAY to much! Good thing I made it to the gym this morning and also took a jog around the 'hood with the girls.....Cause we have tons of leftovers that are calling my name!.....I might even have to do a bedtime jog!

Hope everyone is doing well and also had good weekends and all has a great week ahead ! I will leave you with a pic of MJ.....

This is what happens when you play hard....You literally fall asleep where you are playing!

Yeah I am, but I havent been since Alana was a baby. Back then it was all adults and teens that showed up. And now whenever there is a meeting I have to work :-(. I need to find out the schedule for the meetings ahead of time so I can get the days off work! I want to start scheduling meetings for the parents that are part of the group! I do however see Deanna now and then because she comes in to eat at my work. I know there is a few moms in Texas on the Turners Parents Group on yahoo. Are you aware of that group? We seen Dr Sybert once when Alana was just a tiny baby. We might make an appointment to just go check in now almost 7 years later! :-).
