We're still here. I wish I could say my lack of blogging was due to an overwhelming amount of life going on but that's not quite true. While things are still charging full steam ahead, it's not overwhelming and I have managed to watch 20 episodes of Mr. Selfridge in my spare time. Time that really could have been put to better use. However, I enjoyed my tv time and now it's time to move on.
Today is the first day of the 5A state swim meet. Yippee! I'm super excited to watch Sydney and Gretchen swim. They both qualified for 2 individual events and 2 relays. They are on the same relays together so that makes it twice as nice. They have been working so hard for this. I hope they are able to do their best and be happy with whatever happens. They had good swims for the region meet Jan. 30 so it looks promising for today and tomorrow.
This guy turned 49 and was overjoyed to eat his triple chocolate birthday cake. It's the same cake every year and he's happy about that every year.
This one turned 17. Her special request was for a dreamsicle cheesecake ("is that is thing and could you make one even if it's not?") and some family friend love on superbowl Sunday. Apparently dreamsicle cheesecake is a thing so I took what I liked from a few different recipes and made a winner. I couldn't leave well enough alone and made a lime coconut cheesecake too.
Can you pick out the birthday girl in this pic? She's the one who loves friends at USwirl and is missing the hardware in the next picture.
This picture is featured just because I'm not in any of the others and it was a supremely beautiful day at Snowbird while the Salt Lake valley was totally socked in with not even a hint of sun visible.
That's it for now. Hopefully I'll post some fabulous pictures of my state swimmers next week!
