President's Day

 This weather is getting to be too much.... We were off today for President's day.

 We were post to go to Danville today for  John Seymour funeral ( Grandpa Seymour).  This is Doug's dad - he lived to be 94 years old.  He was at all the family parties and the last few years he has lived with Doug and Gina.
This is a picture that Kaitlyn put on her facebook.  I thought it was good pictures of him.

We were  to have a Princess Social at Church tonight also.  Grandma was so nice to make 24 pink cupcakes to take.  Since I volunteered that I would bring cupcakes.  With this ice and snow it was cancelled.


Then Saturday night I thought it was cold in the house - Sunday we went off to church then we spent the day at Grandma and Grandpa's and went to small group in the evening.  We returned home the house was at 60 degree's and the heater only seemed to be blowing out cold air.  Ahh the heater was broken by morning it was 53 degrees in the house.  The heater guy said that I had the heat up to hot 77 and it triggered something on the heater to turn it off.  $150 later for them to re program it.  Has anyone heard of anything like that????
  We had a great day despite the weather we spent it at Grandma and Grandpa's.  We made lasagna soup..  I will post the recipe soon - it was great!!!
Hope everyone was a great week!!!!

5 on Friday

    Wow I worked a full week this week.  I don't think that has happened since before Christmas Break.  It's nice getting back into a routine.  I am excited to link up with 5 on Friday

 1.     Today is Valentines Day.  Ashley made me a sweet card with hearts on the inside.  She also put play money in the card $10.00.  I am trying to teach her about being grateful and that we can't have everything.  I might be going overboard cause she starting to say things like we can't afford that. Then when she put the money in the card it kind of pierced the heart.
        I think she had a great day!!  They did not have a party at her school but did have a party at Chesterbrook. After grandma worked with her on her valentines cards last night she forgot to pass them out at Chesterbrook.

2.  Last night my Franklin Nights 7th grade boys basketball team played for the State Championship Game in the IESA 7 4A State Game at Normal Kingsley we played Normal Parkside.  We lost but it was a great game and our boys played their hearts out.


  3.  We had a pep rally on Wednesday for the boys before the State game.  We made the local paper.  It was so much fun.  This is why I love being Athletic Director and teacher.


 4.  One of the snow days we had Ashley and I went to the movies.  Everybody was talking about Frozen.  Ashley loved it!!!  This was first movie Ashley and I have gone to - Grandpa and Grandma have taken her before.  Except now she is at the age that she likes movies and is begging to go back to see a movie.


 4.  Last week Ashley celebrated 100 days of school.  She need to collect something to take to school.  I had to go to pinterest and see what we could do that would  fit in her book bag.  We decided on a Caterpillar with grandma's help.
