I'm already "decorating" for St. Patrick's Day! But, it is actually one of my favorite holidays. (You're thinking, "St. Patrick's Day?") Well, yes! Maybe it's because I'm quite proud that I've got some Irish blood running through my veins because of my Irish heritage and I can truly enjoy this day to celebrate Irish things. Now, it's not like my grandparents arrived on a boat, but I do have that ancestory. So, why not enjoy it?

So, do you know who she is? Not only is she Boo from the movie Monster's Inc...but she is also rather young looking, isn't she? I have the incredible knack for making people think I am very young simply because I look it. Recently, I cut my hair pretty short which seemed to make my "youth" become more aged looking. Recently, however, a lady asked my mom what grade I was in. So much for that! *smile*

Yes, sickness. Isn't it that time of year again? At present, I don't think I could agree with Andy Williams when he sings the lines to that famous song, "It's the most wonderful time of the year!" *smile* The bug has hit all of our family except my dad. We've had different strains of it. First, the little insect infected two members of our family with the flu; then, it manifested itself in nautiousness, aches and cramps in another member; now, it is attacking some more people in the form of colds. I happen to be one of those people...and I am discovering how uncomfortable a cold can make you feel. Oh well, it will soon leave and we'll feel like ourselves again.

On Saturday, we celebrated Valentine's Day by having a nice breakfast, at which we received Valentines from my parents. Part of the menu included Chocolate Filled Breakfast Crescents which my mom made, and if you haven't ever tried them before, they are delicious! (Just click on the name and it will take you directly to the recipe!)
My parents also went out that evening and had dinner for just the two of them. The rest of us stayed home and enjoyed pizza and some movies. Pizza is always a winner in our family!

Q & A

Last week, I asked you all what you thought Molly's favorite dessert is...and here's the answer! Cheesecake!! She absolutely loves it! In fact, she says she almost can't contain herself when there's cheesecake around. *smile*

Thanks for guessing, girls!

Well, I'm taking the plunge (for now anyways!) and writing on my online journal. As I write, I am pretty...uhh...I don't know what words I should use to best describe how I feel...worn out? Some of the gang decided to play soccer this afternoon and I am now feeling the effects of it all! I don't remember experiencing this when we played last time, which was shortly after Christmas. And I don't really feel like I did much more than usual...I certainly didn't run up and down the field, although I did run; and I didn't score any goals. So, I don't know why! Oh well, we just have to sometimes!

Mom has been feeling better today. She had been feeling achy and was laying low for a couple of days. Albeit strange, this flu bug has been making its rounds every five days. At least in our family! So, we're expecting somebody to come down with it tomorrow. Hmmm...I'm wondering if it will be me! Yikes! As long as I don't get a migraine, I'll be okay...well, somewhat. I just don't like migraines.

Well, I guess I'll sign off for now!

I know, rather short, but it was something! *smile*

Here is a recent snapshot of Chloe...isn't it hysterical?! *smile*

Another birthday girl!

Happy Birthday, Miss Molly!!! You have now lived one decade!!! *smile*

Okay, blog readers and friends, I have one question for you to answer: what is one dessert that Molly absolutely LOVES?

More to come!

I haven't done a very good job of blogging, lately. ("Lately" meaning for the past month and a half!) I do have a couple of entries to make, but I just haven't gotten to it yet. So, stay tuned!

You know, I realize that a blog is the online place for cyber-space journaling. But, I don't really feel like I do that much. All I do is just highlight the highlights of my family and I! Rarely do I write. I guess I'll have to try doing that more.

Lately, we have been battling sickness among our family. It's a 24 hour flu-bug. First Molly, then Tanner and now possibly my mom, have all gotten it. Fortunately, it only sticks around for a short time. It's a 5 day cycle. Molly got it last Saturday, then Tanner got it on Thursday, and now my mom has it today. We were kind of targeting this day as the next time for it to hit!

I'll post more later!
