April showers please bring warm weather!

Hello Everyone
Sorry I haven't updated in a while but the webfittie icon was blocking the sign in icon so I haven't been able to access my blog. It is still blocking but I found a way around it. Anyway we are fine and dandy and ready for some warm weather.
I just took a trip to New York with a group of 9 women to see Lion King on Broadway. It was amazing! We had so much fun. So we decided to do it every year. I even drove in New York this time. The cabbies there are crazy! We stayed 2 nights and everyone went where they wanted to go. My Mom-in-law Linda and I went to the NEw York City Botanical Gardens to see the Orchid show. Seriously Cool, you were in a rain forest dripping with 100s of different kinds of Orchids with no bugs. We also went to the garment district to all the fabric and trim stores.
I have two great stories from this trip.
First, (I hope I can relay how funny this was because we are still laughing about it) We had 5 women staying in a hotel room for 4. We booked a room with 2 queens and a sleeper sofa. When we got there our room had a King and a sleeper sofa so they were going to bring up a roll away. Linda hid in the bathroom while the guy set up the roll away just in case they made a stink about us having 5. He opened the bathroom door to check if we had enough towels and pushed the shower curtain aside and there was Linda standing in the shower with her arms folded. She smiled at him and said "Hi" He said "O!" and then left. Way funny

2nd Funny thing. Linda and I went into an Italian bakery to share a treat. She really wanted this rum cake. She promised me that the rum gets all cooked out, she has had them before yada yada yada. So I ate my share first and when I was on my 5th bite my stomach started feeling really warm, uncomfortably warm. So to make a short story shorter, my Mother in law got me a little sauced. Hans says I can't go on any more trips with her. Ha Ha My only side effect was a warm tummy and a headache the next morning.

This week is Spring Break so I am taking the girls downtown to the zoo, museums, and to see the cherry blossoms. Should be fun!

Soooo C c c oldddd.
I don't think I can walk Sadie to the bus in the morning any more. My ears are going to get frostbite.
happened to the mild weather of Virginia? I think I am getting soft.
On to bigger and better things. I love Valentines Day! I make everything the kids eat pink and red. Hans and I go on a big hot date with flowers and great mushy cards. Its the best. So I was really looking forward to this Valentines day and then I got a phone call from a nice Sister in the ward putting together a Valentines dinner theatre telling me that my dear sweet husband
volunteered us to sing a duet. AAAHHHH! its ok Sara breathe, so we can't sing no one will notice right!?!. So we ended up singing "a whole new world" from Aladdin. Now that it is over I can say it wasn't so bad, but my mouth full of stress canker sores still hurts. So that was Friday. On Saturday Hans went to the temple with out me, and after went to a Gun Show for 3 hours. He came home just in time for us to miss our movie but the night was still salvageable because we had reservations at this cool place called The Inn at Kellys Ford. As a nice surprise, since we missed the movie, Hans took me shoe shopping and bought 2 pairs of sweet shoes instead of flowers. I think that should be a tradition.
Then it was off to dinner. The first thing I heard when we walked in the door was really loud country sounding music filled with bad words that start with f. And then the host told us it would be 40 min wait. The gross music was coming from a pub/lounge in the basement of the Dining Room. And because there were only 2 chairs to sit on upstairs we had to go down to the lounge to find a seat. We ordered our sodas while this
barfarama cowboy sang awful Jimmy Buffet style songs, but when he started singing a song about never seeing a breast he didn't like, it was time to go and throw up somewhere, preferably on his guitar.
The dinner was fine and the atmosphere was too.
Ok so thats my funny story and while all true here is some stuff I left out.
Hans did volunteer us for the show, but he was going to sing to me on stage not have me sing. (I'm not sure which one would be more
Then Friday night he got up with the girls in the night so I could sleep even though he had to make the 7am session at the temple (1 hour away) to go with a couple in our ward. So he needed to let off a little steam and what better way than to go to a gun show and he ran a few errands for me too. My errands are what made him late so no biggie and the shoe shopping was way better than any movie. The whole gross cowboy was totally true and totally barf. But was soon forgotten except anytime anyone mentions Valentines Day, and anytime I might have to bring it up to get my own way. Just Kidding!
Happy Valentines Day Everyone!

January Brrrr

January started out with lots of fun. New toys, new activities, and school. Women's basketball has started and I love it. It is now officially cold. But still no snow. THis last weekend I went on a scrapbook getaway to a cabin in Maryland. It was really fun and I got 25 pages done! While there someone emailed me a picture of my girls hair at church with the caption (so, gone for the weekend huh) Their hair was pretty sad but at least Hans tried. My brother Nate and his friends got tickets to the inaguration and so they braved the cold and the HUGE crowds and had a great time. Except Nate got the stomach flu thats not so fun. As soon as I learn how to get pics from my camera onto this computer I will do a blog about Christmas it was really fun. Now I get to start planning my friend trip to New York to see Lion King on Broadway! I can't wait.
