This week after getting home from our cruise I have been on the go. Laundry, commissary, lots of crafting and I have run everyday! These bags above I made for the snack to hand out at Madi's basketball game...I gave them to the coach at practice since she won't be at the game this Saturday. We are leaving tomorrow to go on another vacation with Steve's side of the family. The kids are stoked to be going away with their cousins.
Here are Ben's Valentine Cards.

This is what the kids are giving their teachers for Valentines Day. They read: You're the chocolate truffle in a chocolate bar world...we hung them on a yummy bag of Lindt truffles.

Earlier this week on our drive home from the cruise, we stopped off in Daytona Beach to show the kids the racetrack. The big race is there this coming weekend but you would not believe how many campers were already flooding the place almost a week early. Bet they are having a fun week with all fans gathering there.

Everything looks so cute! Another vacation!?!? Wow, lucky ducks!

We live near the TX Motor Speedway and you would not believe the amount of people that arrive early and stay days after the event just to avoid all of the traffic. It's crazy and I think to myself, do these people do this for every race?

I love the crafts that you did! Lindt chocolate is the best and I had the same type of idea for the kids teachers! Where are you getting to go this time on vacation? Lucky girl! I just came home from an 11 mile run with my friend. It was a great run! I can't wait to see you in April!
