Our family is getting older....Cate turned 20 yesterday. I took her out for breakfast and in the evening some of us went out to eat at Olive Garden to celebrate. We came home and had cupcakes given to her by Mary and Peter Frey. Funny as I wrote this I realize again how important food is to our family in some of our traditions.

Making peanut butter buckeyes or white chocolate or milk chocolate truffles is always a fun time and a yummy one too.

I looked over and saw my older guys sitting in our new "chair and a half" looking at their iPhones . They were doing different things too- Not playing a game. I actually got one in October and love it. It is so much faster and better than my Samsung Galaxy....I understand the addiction sadly I have to admit. The face time is amazing... When Mary Kate and Keith were in Ghana last wknd...they face timed us for free. We got lots of pictures and even videos of the kids with them in seconds. We can face time with Jenn and her family too. It is way better than the Skype we have used. I also was gifted with a new Apple computer for my b-day....I use it like a phone and I am now a totally sold out customer to Apple. Way worth the money.

We looked over at Mady today while she was eating ….and this was her pose :) I tell you this one has some spunk but, I sure love it. I mean really who can resist a very pink little girl who just relaxes at the table while she eats…I mean really relaxes.
