Riding in style!

Yesterday, Connor got to take a Hummer limo ride to Pizza Hut for lunch! He was way excited because he has never been in a limo let alone a Hummer! This was one of the prizes he won during the school's magazine sale. To qualify they had to sell a certain amount a subscriptions. I usually split the amount they sell between Zachary and Connor so it is even. Since Zachary had already been on the limo ride two other times he wanted to give the subscriptions to Connor so he would get the ride. Isn't he the sweetest? Just goes to show that even though they fight, they do love each other.
This is Mr. Chuck helping the kids inside. I really didn't get great pics but wanted to post them anyway. The highlight of the lunch for Connor was drinking Diet Pepsi. Gotta have priorities!

I decided to cook Chili last night for dinner. The weather seemed just right for it and it is something that my whole family will eat without complaining. A win-win situation. As it was simmering on the stove I decided to check my email. Boy, I am so glad I did! I got a request from Memory Makers for two layouts for their upcoming Scrapbook Idea Gallery special issue! I am so excited as this is my first time with their magazine. These are two layouts that I just love and they both feature the products from Studio Calico kits.

It is snowing again today! I think we are supposed to get 4 inches on top of what fell earlier in the week. Yikes! I am so ready for spring. Unfortunately in NE Ohio that is going to take a while.

Enjoy your weekend!
