the simple things

I can't tell you how thrilling it was to have all of us together for dinner last night. That so rarely happens during the week, it was quite the treat. It was an extra special meal as it was our 18th wedding anniversary. The kids had fun listening about the wedding, the reception etc. I pulled the photo album out and we looked at pictures, they of course commented on how young everyone looked and how much hair their daddy had back then! Lots of laughter and joking around the table, it really is the simple things that are the best. Probably one of the best anniversaries we've had.

I'm housebound today as the HVAC people are finishing the installation of our new systems. So, I will be trying out a new to me recipe, Rotel chicken pasta. I had it the other day at a friend's house for lunch and loved it, but what is not to love about chicken, pasta, velveeta and Rotel!!

The oldest daughter is working her way through Romeo and Juliet at school. It has been fun to hear her practice the lines she has been assigned to memorize. The other two are buried in TCAP review as the statewide test is given next week. Better make sure I have plenty of breakfast meats and foods for my test takers. Got to bolster their protein intake to help them think better!

Easter is right around the corner and I haven't set my menu yet. Better get busy with that too.....and on that note, have a good Tuesday.
