Everyday Happenings

This past month was a cold one here in PA, but here are some happenings that kept us warm inside.

**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 cooking  company, so we trudged through and had a fabulous time.

These two are great hosts and go all out to make it special.

Not sure how I missed snapping a pic of the other couple that made it there (Jeff and Vicky), but I did get a pic of a couple of funny napkins.  I must have had too much wine.

PTA Reflections participants (Tommy, Ann, and Matt) 

 **Pajama Day at the elementary school

**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!


  1. Such fun, happy days Kathleen!
    Your little ones are so cute...and talented!
    Enjoy the longer, warmer days of spring!!!!

  2. Great days! Having great friends and having good times even in the nasty weather is a blessing.

    Keep warm now. Have a fantastic weekend!

  3. You have had a fun social calendar! Not so much here. But, as you said, spring is on the horizon. We are currently on spring break and we have done much. That's okay. To be honest, I think I'd rather have them's so hard for me to sit still and just be!

  4. Your have been one busy family! I love seeing pictures of your family. Hope you are having a good weekend!
