Revisiting Pittsburgh

Morgan emailed these to me the other day. I just love them! Here's Hayden and Pap playing the new Dora book game that she got for Christmas.

Two of My Favorite Things!

Mom and Bern got me these stacking cooling racks for Christmas-LOVE THEM! I've used them a lot, but they really came in handy this past weekend for the Boston Cream Dream wedding cupcake order that I had. Here are the cupcakes before the filling and frosting!
I just received my PINK cake and cupcake boxes! I am in love with them. They match the beautiful stickers that my friend MaryAnna designed and printed for me. She's super talented! Check her out on Etsy: Doodle Pad Designs & Whimsy Papers
What a little weirdo!

Krispy Kreme

Layner came home from school the other day with this hat!? The girls wanted to model it for mommy and daddy.

Notice the mantel decorations!! GO STLEELERS!
Bernie sent Jeremy a package this week. It was a box of tissues wrapped in a Terrible Towel....SO CLEVER! Jeremy got confused about what to do with them. He's just a young Steelers fan....he'll learn the ropes soon enough.
Check out the ruby red shoes that little girlie wore to the grocery store the other day!

Just In Time!

We just received a Play Off Package from Grandma and Pap!! Shirts and accessories for all! This is the front of one of the shirts. So Sweet! Can't wait to wear it!!
The girls were so excited!!
Hayden's football pose!
This is their imitation of Pap yelling "YEAH" when he watches the football games.
I drove around the other day and tried to capture a picture of the ice that remains. This stuff is NOT sledding material. Pretty sure you would get pretty cut up. It's just ice. The kids have been out all week. The temperatures are finally getting above freezing during the days so it's all melting slowly but surely. What a crazy week it's been!

Fun in the Kitchen

We are still snowed/iced in....going on day 3 of NO SCHOOL!
The other night we got out a Kitchen Experiment Kit that Aunt September and Morgan got the girls for Christmas. We chose to make the fizzing bubbly beverage. Added a little citric acid, baking soda, water, flavoring and there you had it-your very own pop that tasted.....
NASTY!!!!
Layne's was raspberry and none of us could actually get that one down the hatch. Hayden's was watermelon and it was nasty, but drinkable.
Sweet Steelers Superbowl Dreams!!
September and Morgan had a special Christmas elf that made 2 fleece Steelers pillows for me this Christmas! We LOVE them!!
The sheets of ice around her are terrible. All of the leaves looked like this. At least the sun is out today so I think a lot is melting. I don't think that it's above freezing though, so tonight could be interesting!
Easy Bake Cinnamon Pretzels!
Thank goodness we have so many great new Christmas gifts around!! We are definitely making use of them all!

We Got Snow!

Well, about 2 1/2 inches of white fluffy snow and then a thick sheet of ice on top. Just perfect for a little cardboard sled riding!
I wish that I would have known it was going to snow while I was in the burgh for Christmas. We could have come back with tons of sleds and warm clothes!! Oh well.
We suited up the best we could-including some crazy black lace up boots of daddy's for me to wear!
We almost headed over the hill of our neighbor's yard!
Jeremy just knew that he had been hanging onto Hayden's alien cut out from her birthday party for some special reason. Maybe now we can get rid of it!
Layner getting ready to slide. We did take videos, but I don't have much room left on the old bloggerino so I posted them to my facebook. Check them out!

Oh Yeah!
They really got it right this time! All schools around the Atlanta area are cancelled tomorrow! It started with flurries and now it's sleeting!
Oh yeah! Snow Day!!

Christmas in the Burgh!
We drove up to Pittsburgh on Christmas Eve. The trip wasn't too bad at all....of course that's coming from the one that didn't drive!
The ground was snow covered when we arrived. The girls went outside on Christmas Day to play.
They LOVED it!
Pap would make them snowballs and the girls would throw them at him!
And sometimes it would backfire and the sisters would turn against each other!
Christmas morning.
