1. STREP THROAT ~ This week was eventful to say the least! My parents who also double as my babysitters left for Florida. My 3 year old was supposed to begin Daycare for the first time ever and my other 2 children were headed to the before and after school program at their elementary school. All of these plans were halted on Monday afternoon when the three of them started complaining of a sore throat. Soon after that my 3 dollies developed a fever and the back up plan had to be instituted. My husband had to take the day off on Tuesday and I had to call in sick on Wednesday. My 3 little ones are being treated with antibiotics for strep throat and hopefully are on the mend. Let's just say that I did not see that coming. Who would have thought that on my very first day without my parents all of this would develop. I am very fortunate that I have my parents babysit for my kiddos 8 out of the 10 month school year. I miss them so much when they are in Florida for those 2 months!
Our Parents ~ SO blessed to have them!

4. WINTER STORM WARNING ~ This winter in Buffalo, NY has been the worst one that I can recall. It is starting to get a little disheartening. Usually I can plow right through but this year the snow storms seem to be occurring at the exact same time I have to be someplace important. The last storm came when I had a wedding to attend for my cousin in NYC. I made it but barely. It was a nail biter for sure trying to land at JFK in that storm. This weekend I am supposed to be driving to Syracuse for my annual college roommate reunion. There are 8 of us that get together once a year to reminisce about our good old college days! The weather forecasters are already saying no unnecessary travel on Saturday morning. I really don't want to miss this great weekend with my friends. Maybe I can talk my husband into letting me leave on Friday night. Two nights with the kids for him may be a little much but I need this girls night:) I am hoping the meteorologist is wrong... but here are some pictures below you might enjoy! The Church near us actually put this up a few weeks ago and it made National News. :)

I am more than happy to help!
Hope you enjoy our first Five for Friday link up!
