Today is February 28th...It may not seem like and important day, but I will always hold this day close to my heart. It is not an anniversary or my birthday. It was my grandpa's birthday. He was one of the greatest men I have known. I don't have words to describe how I feel. It has been almost 10 years that he has been gone but it doesn't seem that way, though. Every so often I can hear him laugh at a dirty joke or sing a song by a campfire. I am sad that he did not get know my girls. I am sad that he did not get to see how much I have grown as a wife, mother and educator. Grant Pinney, you are missed dearly!

Join me in the Fight Against Breast Cancer!

I know way too many women who have had breast cancer or have relatives or good friends who have breast cancer. My mom is one of these strong women who have survived breast cancer. There are so many opportunities for people to get involved and help raise money for a cure! I have been interested in the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk, but frankly don't think that I can do it. I hope to participate in it someday and maybe I can get in better shape by next year! A good friend of mine, Candy Macias IS going to participate in the 3 day walk in San Diego in November. She is in terrific shape and has run in two marathons! I am hoping to help her out and spread the word about her participation as she is trying to raise $2,300 for the cause! If you would like to check out her website for the event please go to the link below!
Every little bit helps with a super important cause!

Rob and Liz's birthday

A busy week has finally come to an end! We had a holiday weekend where we celebrated Rob's birthday as well as our friend Liz's birthday. The four of us enjoyed another day in the snow with the Capone's to celebrate more birthdays! We went miniature golfing on Rob's birthday. Savannah had Colonial Day at school so I went and volunteered at that also.

Snow Fun!

The last time the girls went sledding, Syd was just a toddler. Savannah doesn't really remember it either. We have been wanting to take them and it has been great weather for sledding or tubing so we decided to try and find a fun place to go! We have seen all the snow on the mountains all around us and we knew there had to be a great tubing area. I found Snowdrift tubing park,which is just south of the Snow Valley ski area. It was beautiful in the mountains and the weather was outstanding, in fact we even had to take some of our layers off because we got too hot! Sydney was our daredevil of course and was the first to go down the longest hill! Savannah soon followed when she saw how much fun Syd was having. Rob and I took turns tubing and taking pictures and videos. I have uploaded some to Youtube. They are pretty funny. Just look for mom2savsyd and our videos should be on that page! Rob and his girls
All of us!

All I want for Valentine's Day is my two front teeth...

Syd lost her third tooth last week. It was another top front tooth! I know that soon the big teeth will come in and she will no longer look like our little Syd Vicious. But for now, she is sooo cute with her front teeth gone and a little lisp! Oh, and there are a couple more loose teeth, too!
