Where has the time gone…..

It has been a long time since I posted anything. I had thought about just stopping this blog as even now I try and type this the kids will not leave me alone.  And I may still yet. However it is a way to communicate with friends and family, not on FB and other social media. So for now it will stay.

We have had a short but fun, action packed summer. School did not let out here till June 21st, because we lost so much time from hurricane Sandy. Gina went to Girl Scout Day Camp immediately following last day of school and then we loaded up the van and we all headed down south. Stopping in Georgia to see my childhood best friend and his family. The trip down was not pleasant at all, due to horrible traffic and torrential rain, but we did make it.

This is the torrential rain….nice huh?

While in Florida, the kids and I visited Dinosaur World in Plant City, with my college best friend and her two boys. It was so hot and humid, but we enjoyed it.

The hubbs and I went on a nice relaxing cruise to the Bahamas for 4 days. We were celebrating out 10 year wedding anniversary  a little bit early. The kids stayed with Papa and Grandma and when we returned we had nice trip to Siesta Key beach and visiting with them and my brother Ben and sister in law Jaime and swimming in my cousin Garnet’s pool on the lake.

While the kids and I were down in Florida the month of July Brian was back up in Pa, finishing up fire fighter school. I am now a proud wife of an official volunteer fire man. Actually this evening is the graduation ceremony and this coming Saturday we are having a party to celebrate not only Brian’s completion of fire school, but his little brother Kevin’s as well.

So I am making a cake, maybe I will take pics of the icing I use, it’s called Faye’s Wonderland icing and it is what my mother has always used. It’s easy and yummy.

Looking a head to the rest of 2013, we have a 1st grader and a 4 year old preschooler, continuing with Girl Scouts, starting of CCD classes, maybe gymnastics for Casey. Trips to Clarion, PA to see Aunt Anna, to West Virginia for Uncle Ronnie’s pig roast and I am sure many other fun things and who knows maybe I will come up with more recipes from the pantry.

Stay tuned…..
