A birthday weekend that ended "super"

Okay, so I debated on doing a post for each day... since they were all so busy... but decided to just make a really long post.-- So HANG ON-- it's a long ride :)

Friday (Feb 1st)....
During the day the girls and I had lots of fun playing in the snow. Again, it was too fluffy for a Frosty (keeping our fingers crossed that if we really NEED 6-12 inches as promised tomorrow night that it will be Frosty snow!!)

(this video cracks me up... she can't stop eatting snow long enough even to say hi!!)
Friday night... DATE NIGHT!!!!
Kim invited us to a "date night" that she was organizing for her church. We met LOTS of people. Everyone was sooo nice! I can't say enough nice things about the people at her church, seriously... the most welcoming, friendly, fun people. We had a great dinner (Olive Garden salad and breadsticks, rotisserie chicken, pasta), fabulous chocolate fountain, games, and more...
Thanks for having us!
Thanks Whitney for babysitting on such short notice (the kids love you!!)
Saturday-- Ryan's Birthday
Well, obviously the Groundhog saw his shadow-- our weather just keeps getting worse!!! I headed to get my hair done (finally) and Ryan headed to the doctor (finally!). I ended up with a great haircut and color and Ryan ended up with {are you ready for the list??} Sinus infection, Ear infection, and Throat infection! Okay, so we have all taken our turns... we should be good now! His birthday was pretty low-key, but I hope he had a good one!

Sunday, February 3rd-- SuperBowl Sunday
We decided to have a little Super Bowl Party. We invited the Garners and the Warners. The Warners had to turn back (taking back home their brownies) due to whiteout conditions {we missed you... and your brownies} The Garner & Ladwig kids had a BLAST playing, Kim and Candi had a fun night chatting and snacking, and Craig and Ryan cheered on their teams! GO GIANTS!!!!!

Reese was tuckered out after the fun...

and that all, folks...

7 friends had to say...:
