The Big 50!

Posted by Gabrielle

On Tuesday, we celebrated Daddy's birthday...and it wasn't just a birthday - it was the big 50!

Of course, the great birthday feast was not complete without a full table of savory treats for the main meal!

Marinated Mushrooms...


and Croissants were just two of  our  tasty delights for the main meal!

Serving up the peach tart!

Besides fresh fruit, peach tart, and ice cream, dessert included

A chocolate platter,

yummy Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake, 

and homemade jam treasures

Happy Birthday Daddy! I'm so glad you're my father!

Our First (and last?) Snow of the Season

Posted by Gabrielle

We've had a warm winter...sunny, 80 degree days, afternoons outside in short sleeves...how much better can it get?

And then, two weeks ago, we got snow!

This is what our house and front yard looked like when we woke up that morning

It's a lovely sight, isn't it? Sadly, it only lasted half a day, and then, it looked like it had never snowed. :)

So ends the saga of our first (and likely last!) snowfall of the season!
