I'm officially banished to the basement. T has a bunch of kids over. Chris & KJ got the heck out of dodge and went to dinner and possibly a movie. I prefer the kids upstairs in the great room vs. the family room because we have a wet bar and mini fridge down here. I really don't want to be responsible for a bunch of 8th graders "experimenting" with my top shelf liquor.

Anyway, holy cow! Can these kids eat! T made cupcakes today, we've done chips & a couple different types of dip, chicken wings, chicken strips, pretzels and a variety of Valentine's Day candy.

I hate the basement because I don't know how to work the TV/DVD/Surround Sound/Picture- in-Picture/Hi Def down here. I can barely figure out how to change the channel. I hate his TV. Chris has TiVo down here too but it's full of House episodes, American Gladitor and lacrosse games. Blech.

So Chris watched some extreme skiing show on TV today and has it in his head that Breck (as in Breckenridge, CO) is THE place to be for Spring Break this year. He thinks T & KJ would really enjoy learning how to ski and snowboard properly. I'm sure they would. However, I will do my best not to smack him upside the head when he mentions this again. I still have vivid nightmares of Chris snapping leg in half our 2nd day in good ol' "Breck"just a mere months before our walk down the aisle.

haha, that is hysterical. I never know where to go when the kids are over. I usually hang out in my room, this Friday I watched tv in Rick's office.
