Upta Camp - February '10

February started out for Iz and I with a trip Upta Camp to hang out with Auntie D for a few days. We haven't been up since LAST JUNE!!!

A little play time with Kiko :)

Hanging with Auntie D and Kiko.

"Roughing it"

Monday's dinner....seafood chowdah - YUM!

A surprise when we stopped in at the local library...there was a MAGICIAN!!! :)

Posing with her balloon dog!

We also went snowmobiling (no pictures, though - sheesh!) and played a lot of go fish and old maid.

Another great trip upta camp! Can't wait to head back this summer when we can enjoy the outdoors even more!

Flashback Friday: Itty Bitty

IzzyB ... February 2006

Gosh, it's hard to believe that the little person I spend my days with used to be an itty bitty ... on one hand, I can't believe how fast the past 5 years have gone and, on the other hand, I can barely remember what it was like when Iz was an infant....a baby....a toddler. She's not any of those things any more. Now she's a kid. She makes her own sandwiches, she pours her own drinks. She's independent and smart and funny and sarcastic and stubborn and a million other things that make her her. She's the light of my life. She's the hardest challenge I've ever faced. She's frustrating and complicated and the most wonderful thing I've ever been a part of.

She's my heart. Running around out there for the whole world to see :)

*** The amount of hair Iz has in that picture up there? The same amount she had until she was almost TWO! Our little bald baby!!!

So, yeah, we went to SnL's for the BIG GAME (yes, I know that was almost 2 weeks ago. Better late than never). Anyhoo...the big boring game with the terribly sung national anthem and two teams I could care less about and no hopes for me winning the football, instead, I focused on the food!

There was a LOT of food there. Taco dip, artichoke dip, muddy buddies, veggies and dip, chex mix, meatball subs, hot wings and cupcakes.

The only picture I have is of the cupcakes. SO cute :)

SOMEONE (ahem, gave Ellie her own dip...
then got scolded by L to clean up MY mess :)

Iz made herself right at home with L's laptop :)

I have more pictures since we were ALL there but, let's face it, you only come here for the cute kids so I won't waste your time with the rest of us :)

Thanks to SnL for hosting!!!!

Wordless Wednesday: Snow Dog

A Night Out

Last Thursday night Iz and I met up with Hubby in the "big city" for dinner and, what would later be proclaimed, the BEST night of Iz's life.

Disney on Ice....Princess classics!

Yep, all the girls were there - Jasmine, Ariel, Aurora, Mulan, Snow White, Belle and Cinderella :)

And our girl was in her princessey glory!

No good shots of the show because we were a bit in the nosebleeds and my camera is TERRIBLE with night shots but, trust me, it was great. I promised Iz that if they do a princess show next year we'll leave Hubby home and splurge on VIP seats!!!

Seeing the pure joy on her face as she watched the skaters made it one of the best nights of my life too :)

Are YOU Ready For Some FOOTBALL?!?

I wonder what's so great about this bird? What exactly makes it a superb owl? Tee hee hee

So, in case you live under a rock, there's a football game this weekend...kind of a big one in fact. We're headed to SnL's again to hang out, eat, do a Yankee Swap [though with a twist this year...just gift cards...not actual gifts :)] and, maybe, watch a little of the game :)

I would be a whole heck of a lot more interested if MY BOYS were playing this weekend, but nooooooo, they blew it and now I'm stuck between these guys:

and these guys:
It's a tough choice but, since I like to root for someone, I'm thinking....


Here's looking forward to a fun day with the fam....I'm actually more excited about the commercials, halftime show & hanging with Ellie than anything else :)
