Jessie Quotes

"Did you know that Sadie has her own oven where she can make things?  A real oven that cooks real food.  And she hasn't even died yet."

After tucking J in for bed, she cupped her hands together and said: "I got all of your kisses."

When playing a guessing game, she described me for us to guess: "She has short hair, white skin, a black shirt on, and I love her."

After eating an ice cream cone: "I'm so happy I could eat another ice cream cone."

We were walking home in the rain and Jessie commented on the weather: "My favorite is when we have the bike or the car but this...oh wow...It's amazing!"

While eating a chocolate bar: "This is gorgeous."

Spring Break

Jessie spent most of spring break with a cold.  It was a good thing, because she's already missed 7 days of school due to colds/sickness, and needs to have a doctor's note after ten days, so it was nice that she didn't need to miss any more school.  We still had lots of fun though and tried to do some special things each day.  
Monday
Bought Frozen and ate it with lunch and treats.
Tuesday
Nunzio's pizza and Modern Family party.  After J Rob went to bed, Bryan and I watched When In Rome (Bryan's choice.  So fun to watch with him.).
Wednesday
Arianna comes to play all day.  Watched Frozen, read stories at lunch, cuddled and played iPad games, art projects, and squinkies.
Thursday
Hang out day.  Cleaning, homework/reading stories, exercise, and picking up Austin and Krystal from the airport!  We had fun visiting with them when they arrived!
Friday
Breakfast/getting ready.  Show Austin and Krystal Cleveland downtown, Tower City Center, Ritz Carlton.


Lunch at Slyman's.  Cool experience at a Jewish Deli.  Tour of Historic Kirtland and the Kirtland Temple.


Stopped for some photos of Cleveland (I love all the bridges) and even A Christmas Story House.



Dinner at Chipotle.  We had so much fun with Austin and Krystal!  We really enjoyed visiting with them.  They are always so thoughtful to bring a fun gift for Jessie, and they introduced us to some fun iPad games.  Perfect guests to have!
Saturday
Girl Scout Cookie Booth at Giant Eagle.  Our booth was scheduled for 3 hours.  We made it 2.5 hours before giving up.  Most customers from Giant Eagle were so sweet and bought cookies.  When we got down to 15, I bought 5, my co-leader Debbie bought the other 10 and we packed up.  It was cold.  A great first cookie booth though.  When all the money is in and the paperwork done, our cookie selling with have raised 566.00 for our troop!  Thank you to everyone who bought Girl Scout Cookies from any troop!



After the cookie booth and guests, we all had some quiet time at home.  My favorite alone/quiet time is to eat food in the bath while watching TV or reading.  After everyone had some quiet time, we had a simple dinner at home and then went to Mr. Peabody and Sherman.  Great movie.
Below: Beginning of Spring in Cleveland.  No complaints here though.  The snow this year has been so beautiful.  Keep it coming please.


Below: New movie theatre seats.  Seriously?  We'll be back.


Mitchell's Ice Cream.  They've added two Vegan flavors (they didn't used to have any): Chocolate and Salted Caramel Pecan.  Delicious.
Below: Jessie had fun coloring after.



Sunday
Girl Scouts.

General Women's Meeting.

Cav's Pregame Dance Performace

With her dance school, Jessie danced before a Cleveland Cavalier's Game.  It was so fun for her and we loved watching her and then enjoying the game afterward.  It was a fun night.
