Here is Lexy Jo with the ice behind her. She is still sporting her medal from ice skating earlier in the day.
We had a great view of the ice...
The kids got a minute on the bench..
Chris was nice enough to take a picture of the three of us and texted to me. I hope that you can tell we were having a great time.

We had a great weekend in Pittsburgh for Lexy's figure skating competition. She got a 3rd place in Free Skate and a 5th in Interpretive. She did fantastic.
I have a lot to blog about and lots of pictures to post, but here is a start and I am tired tonight.

On Tuesday I visited the Smithfield 'algae farm'. Ha... Not supposed to look like that, on SO many levels...!!!
We made some Monte Cristo sandwiches that were listed on a food blog that I follow. They were pretty stinkin' good, and easy to make.
Lexy was ready to go to work with me the other morning. Hard hat and safety vest, she was ready.BIG weekend ahead... Stay tuned...!!!

I picked up the kids right after school so that we could finish getting ready for Lexy's Birthday Party on Friday afternoon. I was a little bit worried about the early start time, 3:30pm on a Friday. But we had a great turn out. I grabbed some pink, sparkle, spray-in hair dye for Lexy. She LOVED it...!! My, my it is soooo PINK...!!! I posted a version of this cake that we had on her birthday. But this is the one that we had at the party. Nice and small, it was all gone by the end of the party. Huh, Helper C...???
After the party we went to a pho-Mexican place for dinner. It was pretty much a goodbye to the Barker's dinner with the Payne's. The kids all had so much fun. I'm pretty sure the adults enjoyed the visit as well. I know that I did. Still kind of sad that the Barker's bailed on us. They had all lined up the restaurant up to sing Happy Birthday in Lexy in Mexican. They brought out this giant sombrero and two fried ice creams. At the end of the song one of the guys picked up the treat and held it in front of Lexy, she thought it was to try the treat... Nope, they pushed in in her face... Hahaha...!!! Just a little, it was so fun, she loved it. She talked and talked about how fun that was. Turned out to be a fantastic evening. Thank you so much for all the help, Helper C, Butch, Zoey, Jess, Andrew, Cam, Jen, and all the others that helped me pull this off. Thanks to all the parents that brought your kids. You all helped me make a WONDERFUL memory for my little Princess.

Lexy got some new shoes this weekend on her trip to Virginia Beach with Amy and Isaac. She loves these new shoes. They are SOOOO pink. Plus she loves that they are tall.
She wore them to school today, she is so very pink today... We love it.

So, he was still looking at some more Zigtechs on eBay. He found these that sold in 10 minutes. The bids were about half of retail, with free shipping. I bid just for fun. When we were the high bidder we were stoked. So, they ended up at our house.. Yes, that is the Dragon Ball Z crew guarding the shoes. No scuffs on these. He wore them to school today. I hope that he has fun with his newest diggers.

I have had some much fun with this ColorSplash App. I had my sis-in-law send me the photo of her kids on the first day of school this week and quickly turned the back ground to black and white. (Side note: You can't even see the carpet, girl.)
