He's a "wolf".......and Hi/Lo Thursday

Tonight was Matthew's Blue & Gold Banquet, for Cub Scouts. We had a medieval feast of riblets, potatoes, garlic bread and fruit. We had all "finger foods", because long ago, there were no utensils, unless you brought your own...Yikes! So Matthew is no longer a Tiger Cub.....He is now a Wolf! It was a fun evening of entertainment, from movies, to a ventriloquist and skits. The boys were cracking up! Even Michael had a really good time!

"Hi/Lo Thursday" posts started on the Riggs Family Blog(http://www.riggsfamilyblog.com/)If you have not visited their blog, you should...it is worth the read!They could really use our prayers right now for Abby & the whole family!

Wordless Wednesday & Pray for me Pray for others

I participate in "Pray for Me... Pray for Others" on the Riggs Family Blog. Check out their blog to add your prayer request. Wednesday is now known as "Pray for me...Pray for others" on the Riggs blog - and they want blog authors to post their prayer request and then post a prayer request that they have for another person/family/situation.
Pray for Me
I have lots of things going on right now...just trying to keep up and keep the focus on the important things!
Pray for Others
Pray for Abby, she is getting ready to face another tough week!
Pray for our country and for the President to make the right choices.

Wordless Wednesday

100 down, and many more to go........

We had a really good weekend.....
I made heart pancakes for the boys on Saturday morning...

We exchanged gifts, I got beautiful flowers from David and a red rose from each of the boys.

The boys got new V-day Webkins and some candy and a new I-penguin.We got David a new Wii game he has been wanting.
We took the boys out for lunch to Olive Garden, and then picked them up heard shaped pizzas for dinner and I made them a big heart shaped chocolate chip cookie. They had a sleepover and two sitters(best friends from school) we left the boys for a night of fun, and headed over to our friends Teresa & Gene's for dinner. We met them 12 years ago, while eating dinner out on Valentine's Day. We were seated next to each other in a tiny bistro and became instant friends...We have since attended each others weddings, and spent every Valentine's Day together since. Now they are pregnant with their first babies, TWINS! A boy & girl due in about 4 weeks. We are so excited for them and cannot wait meet them!
Teresa made an incredible beef tenderloin with a gorgonzola sauce, she also made a yummy tomato red onion salad. I made twice-baked potatoes and a few appetizers. I also made these for dessert! They were delicious!
We had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

This is my 100th post! I wanted to do something different, which is why I had been posting less this week, but I could not decide what to do...so instead I changed my look and I picked the song "100 years"......Hope you like it :)
To help me "celebrate" I would love to hear from some of my "silent followers", you can leave a message or click on the right and become an "official follower".
Thanks so much :)
