This was a pretty awesome day. I got to sleep in (thanks Mark), and eat pancake breakfast (oh I know it's twice in one week - lucky me!). Then I actually braved the cold and ventured into that white stuff. I did it for the kids, they were so excited to try out the new skating rink in the back yard. So armed with two pairs of pj pants, coffee and sun glasses I enjoyed a morning with the kids. Just in case you are wondering where the third one was, he was having an early nap today. I think the poor kid is getting sick again. So here are the pictures of our backyard adventure.

I dropped Annaliese off at home and picked up the littlest kid and off I went grocery shopping. I really really love grocery shopping. It's so much fun. I know, I hope I'm not making some of you sick with my dorkyness. But I've been shopping at the same store for the past 5 years and they all know me. Sure it helps that Mark's been working there almost 15 years (only once a week now though). They are so sweet at Longo`s. They cut open fruit to feed the kids, offer samples and run out their way to help! So here is what I got for the week. My pantry and freezer is well stocked so I didn't need any pasta/beans/lentils/beef/pork! I also did a huge shop last week replenishing my baking supplies. And yes I know we are spoiled but just remember that we don't spend a penny on take out... ever!!!!
