To answer her question, this is what's been going on.
Last Saturday, I had a girls night with my sisters. We went browsing at a furniture store (for Ellen, not me. I only dream of new furniture, like this really awesome leather sectional.
Someday...) Then, we went to the movie and saw 'The Impossible'.
OK, now, I could write an entire post about this movie. It was amazing and I highly recommend it. Unless you have a heart problem, because it is an intense rollercoaster ride! Also, bring tissues, because those napkins from the snack bar just don't cut it. (I cried through about 75% of the movie.) I can pretty much guarantee that you will come away feeling like your problems are not that bad.
I LOVED this movie and plan to take the Handy Man to it as soon as possible. (Also, finish your nachos/popcorn/candy in the first five minutes, because after that, you will be too involved to eat. My nachos ended up on the floor under my seat, half eaten.)
Then, on Monday, because my family has a get-together-addiction, we went to dinner. All my siblings, their significant others, and my parents. Why, oh, why did I not bring my camera? I've gotten very sloppy about this. (Note to self: take your camera every time you leave the house!) My parents, my older sister, Heidi,and my sister-in-law Kerrie, all have birthdays coming up and we usually go out to dinner to celebrate. My dad is having surgery on his birthday, so we did it early. It was great. Chinese food and lots of laughter and teasing- some things never change.

(NOT from our birthday dinner.
But, we needed a picture.)

(These are from Christmas Eve, but it's the same people.)
Monday and Tuesday we had no school. By Wednesday, I was ready for them to go back.
Today, they're home again! Ack! Yes, after a snow day a couple weeks ago, today was an 'ice day'. Why?
