Amy had an audit job in New Orleans. While she was gone, I took the girls to lunch at "BEARS" po-boy shop. Then we went to see "Princess and the Frog!"
Thomas kept himself occupied with a treasure we found during our weekly Wal-Mart trip...T-REX MOUNTAIN!!
It was about 55 degrees when I took the picture. And yes, it felt pretty warm outside! Funny how your perspective changes! :) The fountain is starting to thaw. There was a little bit of water on top of the ice when I took this at lunchtime. I just checked the temp and we're up to 59 now.

Aimee wasn't too thrilled about driving across Lake Pontchartrain. She told us that she didn't like listening to the "kathunk kathunk kathunk" the whole way.
After the Christmas Story, the kids opened their traditional pj presents...don't they look cute!?!
NEW YEARS EVE!
New Years Eve was spent playing on the wii. I even got a chance to try it out! I did the sword fighting and the 100 pin bowling. I ended up with the TOP SCORE in 100 pin bowling! :)
We went outside for a little while and watched the neighborhood fireworks from our driveway! They put on a great fireworks show! The fireworks started around 6:30 and went in spurts until about 12:30! We had to get all snuggled up in blankets and the kids used their new sleeping bags too!
After watching the fireworks, we went in to get warm and watched a movie! The movie ended up putting the kids to sleep before the New Year was official. Bethany had been at a party, but got home a little before midnight. She and I stepped out to watch the FIREWORK FINALE...pretty impressive for neighborhood fireworks!!! :)
NEW YEARS DAY!
Our new year started with race to clean the house! The Knights were coming to stay at our house for the weekend! :)
Aimee got her room clean and wanted a friend to come over. Catherine was the lucky one! She and Aimee are in the same class at school and have violin class together too! Aimee and Catherine are like two peas in a pod! They are so cute together! We went to the neighborhood park to play for awhile and had hot chocolate when we got back to the house! :)
