The kids all had their Valentine's parties at school this week and they had lots of fun.  Weston got a little excited about some jumbo lifesavers and he got a lesson about how we don't take things that don't belong to us...especially candy from a baby. -Well, about 8 years ago the little girl was a baby...  Anyway, we celebrated VDay again that night with friends and some absolutely fabulous margaritas!  

Spring Break is around the corner and we don't have to go anywhere!  Yeah!  It will be a fun week.

New Year? http://www.texascoxfamily.com/blog/2012/12/new-year I am amazed that it is December 30th and the turn of the New Year is around the corner.  This year seems to have flown by!  I suppose though, looking back, we have done so many things, the kids have been through many adventures and we have had many changes.   We look to 2013 with great anticipation and excitement about what this New Year may bring.

Game Face http://www.texascoxfamily.com/blog/2012/7/game-face Nolan Wayne is such a little ham...  Today, I was on the phone with Kevin on speaker in the car and I said I hear a log of giggling in the car.  Nolan Wayne piped up with "I'm the little Giggler!"   Never a dull moment...

Ray's Homemade Birthday Cake http://www.texascoxfamily.com/blog/2012/7/rays-homemade-birthday-cake Raymond always gets to choose a cake 'flavor' that he wants for his Birthday.  I always improvise with creativity to try to create it for him.  This was a Double Fudge Cake with Coconut / Fudge Ice Cream, real coconut and fudge layered in the middle layer.  On top, I drizzled Chocolate fudge with real coconut flakes piled high.  On top of the Coconut, I layered coconut oil infused almonds dusted with sugar.  Raymond's friend helped us tear it up! ;)

The Bird Bakery http://www.texascoxfamily.com/blog/2012/7/the-bird-bakery We stopped by our local bakery a mile from our house for some afternoon cookies today.  This bakery is owned by couple Armie Hammer and Elizabeth Chambers (see: http://blog.mysanantonio.com/jakle06/2012/03/hot-hollywood-couple-opening-alamo-heights-bakery/).  Sophia Madison's classroom brought in a poster board they made for the bakery.  Today, Elizabeth was so sweet to Sophia, thanking her for the poster.  They have some great chocolate chip cookies, too!

Pancakes and more Pancakes... http://www.texascoxfamily.com/blog/2012/7/pancakes-and-more-pancakes This morning, Sophia Madison and I made Pancakes!  We made homemade honey-roasted pecan pancakes, strawberry pancakes, chocolate chunk pancakes and Banana Foster pancakes...each sprinkled with powdered sugar!  Everyone put in their order and we served it up!  Sophia was a great help and she learned just how much math is involved in doubling a recipe! ;)
