Daddy-Daughter Scrimmage (Rec. Program)

The picture is not that great, but the smile that was on her face when she ran down the court in front of her Daddy was PRICELESS!!!

A dog day afternoon

The week has been really busy for us....but it didn't seem to effect our furry friends. Bella still wants to play ball every 3 minutes....
and Minnie is still watching for squirrels outside.......

Basketball is our life right now....we're playing those few last games and tournaments before the end of the season!! We watched Anna play on Saturday....the coaches are so good, they give every girl a chance to be point guard....Here's Anna, the point guard!!!

Here's a picture from last weeks game. They played a "red" team. I know the coach was probably concerned about playing good defense but it looks as though Anna is thinking "Oh my goodness, I can't believe you're wearing pink shorts with a red shirt!!"

The Office

John moved into a new office in his building about a year ago. I don't get downtown very often, so I took this opportunity to take a peek at his office when I was there this week.

Loved the fancy door with his name on it...
and LOVED the new spacious office space!!! I'm so proud of this guy!!!

My little helper

When I ask Ben politely to unload the dishwasher, he always says "YES." It literally takes him 15 minutes to get ready to unload the dishwasher....he has to find his Ipod and his headphones. If I'm patient, he will get the job done...
What's up, dog??

Date Night

Saturday night John and I had a date night. We went to one of our favorite places....it overlooks a lake. We arrived when there was just a little bit of sunlight left. Out on the lake was an ice fisherman and his 2 dogs. It was amazing just watching them all walking on the ice, checking their sites for the "big one." A friend of mine who was dining there a little later than we did said that the dogs eventually had collars that had flashlights attached to them so they could keep fishing!! We finished the evening with a piece of carrot cake......
I had to put this picture on...to make Grandma Ellie hungry!!!

It was a slow weekend for us...hooray, just what we needed!! John and I managed to get out for a date night and enjoyed a wonderful dinner and CARROT CAKE for dessert!! YUM!

I decided to make some Super Bowl Food even if our PACKERS weren't a part of it....made some Chili.....
and made some Hot Wings....very messy to make, by the way....
and some little girlie decided to eat pasta instead....
