Our repeat no shows were once again no where to be found in spite of enthusiastically RSVPing yes. I am so glad I did not tell the kids they were invited. If they would have come, it would have been a nice surprise for Veronica. At least I avoided disappointment. If she had time to update her facebook status, there's no reason why she couldn't have called, emailed, texted, or FBd me to say their plans had changed. This isn't the first, second, or third time this happened either. I decided I am D-O-N-E. Why bother with someone who has so little regard for us? Don't make time for those who have no time for you!!
Anyway, we had a great time with our awesome friends and honestly they weren't even missed!
Remember all the flowers? This is what they were for ~ Veronica's Tinkerbell cake!

And goodness, my kids got SO MUCH CANDY at school. Really? for Valentine's Day?! I remember giving cards and only cards in school. Every so often, one of the more popular kids would have a sucker taped to their card but that's it. Both girls came home with gobs of candy.

Security Alert Reminder
The State Department, based on terrorist threat information, reiterates its January 29, 2011 alert to U.S. citizens of the potential for terrorist attacks in Azerbaijan, including against American interests.
This threat remains serious.
U.S. citizens in Azerbaijan should remain vigilant, particularly in public places associated with the Western community. In addition, U.S. citizens should remain aware of their surroundings, be vigilant about their personal security, maintain an unpredictable daily schedule, and the vary the routes used to travel to and from their places of work and residence

This is what I did all morning... piped royal icing flower after flower after flower! It wasn't bad at all since they are all easy drop flowers. It took longer to mix and color the icing. What is this for you ask? That you will have to wait and see!!

Clint's latest adventure is on hold - for now. He was scheduled to head to Azerbaijan Thursday, but his visa won't be ready in time. We're both a little uneasy about the trip because there is talk of a terrorist threat over there. With all going on in the world right now you would think that this would be taken into serious consideration. It looks like he is going anyway though.
It is dreary and raining, so I did a little sewing today. I decided to make the girls matching t-shirt dresses for Disney! 31 days to go! The dress was easier than I thought. I can't sew much and wasn't sure about what I was doing, but this was fairly easy. I bought $4 shirts at Wal-Mart and used some fabric my Mom had. I think she'd be proud that I did this on my own. Just don't look at it too closely and you won't notice my mistakes!
