longest month ever

I'm so glad February is here. I thought January would never end. It just seemed to drag on and on and on. I guess that's normal - the letdown after everything that goes on during Christmas and New Years, the dreary weather (we've actually had more rain than snow - yuk), nursing a couple sick/recovering kittens (they were both spayed on the same day) and we had a couple personal not-so-happy moments during the month that made it even worse. But with all the bad things that have happened recently, we have been able to do some fun things too - the concert mentioned a couple posts ago, my first ever youth group retreat (pretty sad when you're the "leader"), the Super Bowl party and enjoying the Patriots' loss, and baking a Barbie cake for my aunt's birthday.

The representatives from Greene Valley PCA at the Pittsburgh Presbytery Senior High Snow Camp in Ligonier, PA.

The cone-heads.

My homemade Super Bowl cookies. This is the 3rd year I've had to make Patriots helmets since I started doing this in 2004, I'm so sick of it.

We got to watch the big game through the lens of a projector on Andrew's living room wall. It was so awesome, unlike this photo. The picture was perfectly clear and did I mention huge?! I think it was about 8' x 10'. If you look very closely, you can see me to the right of the "screen", the players were bigger than life-size.

The Gone with the Wind inspired Barbie cake.

Thanks for the update, Jen. I've been thinking about you... Hope February is better than January was! Here I'm holding down the fort -- Currie's had the flu since Sat. morning. He has only left the house once since then to see the doctor. I'm hoping and praying I don't get it next!

Love the cookies! They are great as usual!
Sorry to hear that you have hated January as much as I have! :)
Here's to a better month in February and hopefully a fast-approaching Spring!

I sure did miss those cookies! Ok, not so much the cookies as the whole experience of sharing the time together, but the cookies are always a masterpiece.
