Jayme and Poppy came out for a visit and while they were here Poppy wanted to play a game on the iPad. So I found her a game where you decorate cookies. At some point in the game the voice says "Now it's time to eat the cookie." She lifted the iPad to her mouth and licked the cookie on the screen. I managed to just snap a picture the next time she did it. It was good for a few laughs.

I tackled the storage container cupboard and that led to cleaning them all out because I would go to put something away in another one and that one would need cleaned out so what I thought might be a 30 minute job turned into an all day thing. But so worth it.

This is what the dogs like to do in this cold, cold weather. And side note: My bosses are in Big Sky, Montana at a conference this week and she called today and told me that they ate outside because it was so nice out! Now that's just not fair! Our temperature today was 17 with a real feel of 0...
Yesterday I came upon this picture on the internet.
From Omaha World Herald, November 13, 1968 so I decided to make them yesterday. If you like the Runza Restuarant (It's a Nebraska thing) Runzas then this is very close. I mean, I have made them before but the dough of this really is the dough like in the restuarant.
Doesn't that make you hungry for a Runza?
Trey had a meeting to go to today so we got to have Poppy over for awhile. She and Boden always have a good time.
Too cold to wear anythng but "cozy pjs" as Boden calls them.
It's been a fairly calm time these last few days. That's been nice. I am just ready for spring.

Friday evening Bryan and I had a nice quiet time alone at home. He had been gone almost all evenings since we got home from Chicago so I just made us a nice Valentine dinner a day early.
Poppy's Gigi Beth, Trey's mom, did a photo shoot with her for Valentine's Day. This was the Valentine I got from her. Such a little sweetie.
Then on Valentine's afternoon and evening, since both our husbands were working, Jayme and I hung out with Poppy. We went out to the mall to visit Trey and eat some supper out there. Poppy was playing in the play place but as you can see from her face she thinks there were altogether too many kids out there. I agreed.

Bryan had a retreat in Nebraska City this past week after we got home from Chicago. He happened to leave a speaker for his iPad in the conference room. So after church we headed down there to pick that up. Since we were down there we decided to go by a few antique stores that are down there. At one of them the guy has a bunch of stuff in his back yard. Bryan found a small door just perfect for a project he has been working on in Bobbi and Travis' basement. Oh, wait, it won't fit in his vehicle...so we duct taped it to the rack on top...say what you want...
Bryan cracks us up quite often by making broad hints about pie or cookies or homemade noodles...you get the idea. When he is hungry for something he asks questions like "Have you ever heard of someone making a pie.(or homemade noodles...) He's a real crack up! Monday it was homemade noodles. So I made him some. Beef and noodles. That is a meal that makes me think of childhood. They were delicious. I don't know why I don't always make them! .

As we were walking back to the hotel we saw this shop front. Of course I had to take a picture.
Then off to the airport this morning. I've never seen a plane de-iced so I snapped this picture of the de-icing.

After almost two weeks of spring like weather, February decided to be winter.
United, after an hour on hold, got us a flight out today. Why are we going to Chicago, you ask? Well, over a year ago or more Bryan was asked to be a speaker at Moody Bible's Founder's Week 2015. The super bowl of Christian speakers. That day has arrived and he speaks on Tuesday, February 3. It is such an honor for him and especially since he attended there so many years ago.
I very proud of him! So Chicago here we come.
