Sorry for disappearing last week. Life has been a little crazy of late. Vinny and her best friend, Katherine, bought each other the same shirts for Christmas. The girls have been going to Yoga together and these shirts were perfect.
Get it?

Sorry for the lack of posts last week! Yesterday, my honey and I spent Valentine's Day eating a nice meal out together and spoiling each other with a box each of See's Candy! Who's box will last longer?

This is what your night can look like when you take your two crazy kids with you to dinner on your anniversary.
Yep, entertaining the entire night!

Vinny received her third college acceptance right before Christmas to Wofford College. She is also a Wofford Scholar and was awarded the Old Main Scholarship for $20,000.  She will most likely not go to this school due to the size and location, it is only 10 minutes away. It is an amazing school and we are very proud!

They also sent her a beautiful leather portfolio! So proud!

Santa brought the family the Pie Face game. You put either whip cream or a wet sponge on the hand and then turn a knob until it randomly smacks you in the face. Messy but fun!

Getting a little help from the boy! The other two boys were too scared to play!

We had a light Christmas this year but no one went without!

New blazer that did not arrive on time. He does have it now. 
The following photos were taken with my new lense.

Yes, it was a great Christmas!

Vinny's friend Sawyer, has a grandmother, Louise. She is now in assisted living and a week before Christmas, Vinny, Sawyer and friends, went to perform for the residents! They were so amazing and the audience loved every minute.
This is Holt who is Sawyer's big brother and a grad student at the University of Kansas in Composing! Vinny was the page turner for him.

This is our sweet Louise! She is the kindest, most amazing woman I have met in a long time. She adores and loves everyone she meets. I love how she is looking at Vinny in this photo.

Happy Monday!

I discovered last night that I had forgotten to blog the photos from Vinny's birthday! Oops!

Mitchell bought her a couple of necklaces!

A new car stereo from Mom and Dad.

Mom's first cake from scratch, no boxes or cans involved!

After cake, a little game of scrabble! 
Still hard to believe that my baby girl is 17!

After Smores and games, it was time for the kids to open their new pajamas. Then photos were taken!

My crazy kids!

Then it was time for the reading of Twas the Night before Christmas.

And then the kids went to bed.
