Funny story: we listened to the gospel this morning from Matthew who spoke of silent almsgivings, not letting the right hand know what the left is doing, praying in silent and not having to broadcast it, and basically doing good for the sake of good and not for the reward. Brett leaned over with his big black ash cross and said "Doesn't this cross on my forehead make it difficult to not tell people I went to church this morning?":-)

Scott and Stephanie went Swing dancing! and Ben and Shannon went to Sarris' Chocolate and then McDonald's.
Sunday we had some family and friends over to celebrate Scotty's big day. This led to the highlight of the weekend:
Back up to Friday when Ben, Scott and I went to Sam's. We spotted a double layer cookie cake with frosting in the middle and on top. We were drooling. Fast forward back to Sunday, Ben and I are standing in the kitchen discussing the cake Mom bought and Ben says again how good the cookie cakes sounds. So, we swindle $20 and a Sam's Club card from Dad and Ben and Shannon ran and bought the cake. Ben, Shannon, Stephanie, Scott, and I hid in Ben's room and we surprised Scotty with a cookie cake. The only thing was I made them swear they would still eat dinner and eat the cake mom bought. So, there is still a bit of cookie cake hidden under Ben's bed. Hi Mom! :-)
Monday was a bit sad as usual. Ben went to school and Scott went for a half a day. While Mom got ready, Scotty and I went to my fav restaurant (other than the South Side) in PA, Eat 'n' Park, for my favorite dessert - Grilled Stickies A La Mode! After that we picked up mom and headed to the South Side for lunch with Dad and Aunt Sondra.
Off to the airport for a tearful good bye but sweet memories of another wonderful trip home.
I was greeted at the door by puppies and hubby and we went to Chipotle for a V Day dinner! Brett bought me the Mamma Mia soundtrack - he really loves me!

Natalie insisted on adding more tequila...
What else would you use to break up frozen margaritas?

At approx. 6:30 am this morning, the Clancy family had their weigh in, Lucy (23.6; Fatty weighs way more than that!) and Tucker (16) included. I wish I had the camera when Brett got the dogs to "stand" on the scale. Maybe next Friday when we see if they have lost any weight. So, wish us luck, we have lots of water to drink, veggies to eat and miles to run!
