Spring Things

Wow, March 1st already?? Tony just got back from a 6 day trip to Phoenix for work. The kids were excellent for me while he was gone. I had such a hard time sleeping while he was away, though. I slept in until 9 his first day back! We all missed him SO much!

As much as I love winter, at least the snow part of winter (which we dont get much of here, usually), I'm really excited for Spring! We've gotten teased (like we do every February) with a few, very pretty sunny days, making me want to throw open the windows and spring clean.
My tulips are starting to emerge. I'm kind of excited about that, since they are my favorite flower and I just planted them this year. I hope they bloom. My last attempt a few years ago were duds. I think I got 2 blooms out of all of them, the rest were just the leaves.

We are soooo excited, we are taking the kids to Disneyland for spring break! We'll be there for 8 days. It's been 4 years since our last trip. It was a great trip but with the kids all being that much older now, I think it will be even more fun. Plus, before, it was their first trip there ever. They have memories of things they liked now, so it's nostalgic for them, like it is for Tony and me. Emilee isnt able to come with us because of her work and college schedule. I feel bad leaving her but she seemed to be ok with it.

I really need to get my iPod up and running. I got Emilee's hand-me-down when she replaced hers with a better version. It will replace my 'old school' Shuffle. I think that will be my goal today. Off to find the cord.....
