A Birthday and a Show

It was time to celebrate the birthday of Ellen's friend Bri. Bri's mom invited all the girls and their moms to Infinito's Pizza then to Lancaster Bible College to see the musical Fiddler on the Roof. 

The gang's all here!
(Minus Terry, Elizabeth's mom.)

The girls.....
Ellen and Nicole

Marissa and Bri

 Sarenah and Elizabeth

Emily with her mom 

Bri blows out the candle while the girls applaud!

Bri opens her gift from Ellen.....

She looks thrilled! It's a wristlet and a Target gift card :)


Bri gives the girls a gift....Nicole and Ellen are thrilled to find Reese's PB cups!

Marissa likes the notebook!

Thank you Bri and Marge! We loved celebrating with you!!

We left the pizza place and headed towards LBC to see the musical. 

We are ready to see Fiddler :)
Elizabeth asked me to sit beside her. I was happy to do that. She was really missing her mom....I told her if she wasn't missing her, we would be worried! She giggled :) Love this girl!!

The show was fantastic!! We loved it, we laughed a lot! 

I say it so often but I'm saying again.... I LOVE this group of friends! They are such an answer to prayer...they have no idea. Blessed every time we are together. 

It was a good day!

A Snowy Afternoon

It's snowing. Here's a few pictures after it started around noon today. 

Looking forward to having my coffee out there someday again. 

I guess It won't be today :)

I wanted to take a yardstick out to a patio table before it got dark but I got busy making dinner and forgot! We have at least 3 inches. Hubby said it's not snowing was a fast moving storm. 

I took Ellen to work this afternoon. It was snowing a lot here but as I drove to the east side of Lancaster, they didn't have much at all. It must have just started there and was snowing much more as I headed home. The highway was ok but the 2 lane roads to our house were slick. I don't drive in this kind of weather unless I must. I. Do. Not. Like. It. For most people this amount if snow isn't a big deal. 

After I got back home, Ellen soon let me know they were only cleaning at one store and would be heading back to the Lancaster store......say what?? I called her Dad to encourage him to leave the job site early to go get her. Ellen needed to wait for a little while. At least the store wasn't closing early and she could wait inside.   

Home was a welcome sight tonight!

Everyone is here except Gina. She works the later shift tonight. 

Dinner was good even though I improvised....A Lot!!

Gluten free chicken pie. 
Doesn't look pretty, but as you can see, it was well received :) If you want some, you would wise to show up soon!

Yes, it's pretty out there!
