**Our friends John and Mary hosted their annual Valentine Wine and Food Pairing party. There was a horrendous snow storm that night and many of the couples couldn't make it there. Total bummer. However, there was no way Bill and I were going to miss out on Mary and John's wonderful
These two are great hosts and go all out to make it special.

**All City Orchestra Concert
In a nutshell, I dropped off Mary for early morning rehearsals two days in a row. It is here that she learned about 12 songs with orchestra students from her school and 3 other middle schools in the district. Never having practiced before it is amazing that by the end of those two days (about a total of 6 hours) those kids put on a heck of a concert together.
**My nephew Jimmy served his first mass as a new altar server. It was great to be able to witness that and also see his Dad (my brother) on the altar with him serving as a Eucharistic Minister.

** From there I headed to bowling and lunch with the Six. (minus one....we missed you Rose)
With family birthdays, Easter, baseball, and track season on the horizon, we are now ready for warm weather days. Bring on Spring!
