Handbags, babies, and snow--Oh My!!

1. Last night was our live auction and underwriting party for the Dallas Handbags event. We "sold" twenty laptops towards our Laptops for Love program (including a joint purchase from great friends). We had a great time! I met with many new people getting acquainted with Heroes for Children, and had the chance to visit with some great supporters that we've had throughout the years. The Mansion was the perfect location for this event. I haven't been there in over 12 years. I went one other time in my life, wearing my prom dress that I had just gotten. It was my 18th birthday and this cute guy that I was dating was treating me to a special evening. 12 years later, that cute guy was standing by my side last night at the party. And then dinner with Weintraubs and Franklins afterwards? The best ending to a fantastic evening. Sorry, Tracey--I told them the texting needed to stop--they don't listen well to me!




2. Ella came HOME today!! Due to the weather here in North Texas tonight, we chose to stay in and not drive on the potential ice (people, Texans are freaks when we have an ice storm--only once a year, but we act like it is the worst thing you've ever seen). Maggie, Andrew, and I babysat Beck Tuesday night. Not since Allie have I met a calmer, sweeter, easier going baby. He is the most laid back little man EVER. Love him. We can't wait to hold sweet Ella tomorrow night!! Maggie is a little obessed with the babies now. She currently has a baby doll that she has just taken interest in. Her name is Baby Ella, of course, and goes with us everywhere now. This Baby Ella is about three times the size of the real little peanut! Oh, and if you haven't check out the slideshow of the twins on Deb's site, you are missing out. Breathtaking!


3. Been a while since I've posted some pictures. We had snow on Tuesday morning as well. No ice, so it wasn't bad. Before heading off to school, we put on her rain boots and headed out to the backyard. Maggie loved her first snow experience and Brandy was a complete spazz. She freaks in the snow, running around like a wild woman. Some pics of Maggie with the cool little man as well.

My kids would love to play in the snow. We don't get much here in St.Pete. Maggie is so cute, I love her curls. I wanted to let youknow that my daughter who is almost 4 likes to call me Amy instead of Mommy when she's mad. Of course she doesn't do this with Daddy.
The slideshow was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.
