It's February!

Baby Joey is almost three weeks old already! Check out that head of hair! 

We got some snow last night, about 3 inches for us. North Jersey and New England got a lot more from Winter Storm Nemo. 

My school went on a field trip yesterday, to the Wells Fargo Center in Philly to see the Wings Lacrosse team play. I knew the basics of the game, and it was interesting- it moved really fast. The kids seemed to enjoy it, especially the part about eating while watching the game. 

I've made six  no crochet sashay scarves so far, and just bought more yarn. They're so pretty, and work up so fast! 

I just read the first three books of a new series by Brenda Novak, called the Whiskey Creek series. Each book is about a different one of a group of friends, and the other friends are supporting characters. I read the second book in the series, "When Snow Falls" first, and liked it the most. Cheyanne, the main character, has always felt different than her low life mother and her sister. Cheyanne has what may be early memories of a different family. Her dying mother, Anita, says Cheyanne just thinks she's better than anyone else. Anita can't remember where Cheyanne was born, and there's no birth certificate available. Then a private detective comes around. A really good book, and highly recommended. 

I also just finished Shadow Woman by Linda Howard, one of my favorite authors. Lizzette wakes up one morning, looks in the mirror, and doesn't recognize the face in the mirror. She also has a two year memory gap. Memories start to come back, and her life is in danger. Another really good book. 

We had dinner Thursday night at Bertucci's with Steph and Dan. Steph is in her final semester of getting her master's degree from St. Joe's, and Dan has gone back to school to take IT classes. We had a nice evening of visiting with them. Even tho they only live 2 miles from us, we don't see a lot of them- we're all so busy. 

Manda and Ben's best man and groomswoman, Kyle and Danielle, had their baby boy this week. Zach is a cutie! 

And tonight we'll see the Garemore side of the family, at Sharon's house for her Zach's 12th birthday party. 

And the beat goes on!
