Family Times

my parents just left this morning snif, snif.
we had a great weekend with them though. they came to visit us to get away from the constant
  • work
  • they have been doing on the house since the hurricane. they just needed a break. thursday night we celebrated Christmas and new years.
    we gave them their Christmas presants and toasted the new year with welches sparkeling grape juice. they were able to go to the mall since they still don't have one. we went to eat at
  • jerusalem cafe
  • b.j.'s brewery
  • and
  • sweet tomato
  • desert was at
  • rimsky's and a rocky road apple from the chocolate factory in the van mall. we played rummikub and scrabble and watched some football. having my parents here was lots of fun but another good thing is that they made some yummy
  • gumbo
  • on friday night. it's been so long since i've had such good nola food. it was a fun weekend and i'm always sad to see them go. but now i get to look foward to seeing my sister and her boyfriend whenever they come for a visit and some more fun times.


    1. One day my three yr old came up to me while I was loading the dishwasher and said, "Mommy I want to be just like you when I grow up" I said, "You do", she said, "yeah a Cinderella Mom" and so the title of my blog was born. Its original name was Me,Me,Me, its all about me....for once!!

    2. that's sweet. i like it. i've always loved cinderella and cinderella is part of my email address and it was a big part of my wedding such as my cake topper so when i first started blogging and saw your blog on a friend of a friends blog i thought i think i'm going to like this blog and i do. keep posting. smiles.

    3. I totally loved meeting your parents! They are awesome people -- and anyone who can get Sir Calvin to warm up to them within 5 minutes is good in my book (good job, mom!)

      Sounds like you had some good eatin' while they were here -- you managed to visit all of my FAVORITE restaurants. LUCKY DOG!

      Thanks again for the gumbo -- we're still enjoying the leftovers.

    4. glad you're enjoying the eats. i'm glad that my parents got to meet some of my favorite people too. i talk about you guys all the time so now there's a name with a face.
