A night out with Jim Brickman...

I am currently posting because I am out of school AGAIN for snow. The teachers were actually scheduled for an inservice day today, but very late in the game, the system decided to cancel school. Therefore, Duncan and I are still in bed, and we are planning to catch up on progress reports and graduate school work. NO PAINTING!!! Can you tell I'm painted out? In case you were wondering, Andy and I did finish painting our bedroom yesterday. One more room down!
So, yesterday was the day of love. Yes, Andy and I did plan a night out on the town without the kid (Duncan). Truth be told, I am a closet Jim Brickman fan (until now, I guess!). Several of the piano songs in our wedding were the works of Brickman. For those of you that may not know who he is, look up songs like "Angel Eyes," "Valentine," "Never Alone," and "Timeless." These are some of my favorites. Well the symphony center downtown was hosting Jim Brickman, so Andy and I got tickets for last night's show. It was SO much fun. The symphony center (I refuse to call it by its name because I can't spell it or say it) is absolutely gorgeous! We had dressed up for the evening, so it really felt like a special night out. If you haven't been to the symphony center, I really recommend it!
Here are some pics of the center and Andy and me before leaving the house...


A shot of the concert hall...just before the usher told me I couldn't take pictures. The show hadn't even started yet!!! Needless to say, Andy was embarrased...


I did try to add a little red to my outfit. This is taken just before getting out of the car and freezing our tails off!



A family shot before leaving. Notice how Duncan turns his head just as the picture snaps. He was just mad because we wouldn't take him on our date...


And last but not least, here are a couple of pics from my class Valentine's party at school on Friday (no we are not supposed to post pictures of students online, but these have full masks on!). It was quite possibly the craziest day ever with parent-teacher conferences and a Valentine's party all in one. We made symmetrical heart masks to reinforce the concept of symmetry that we were discussing in math. These were a couple of my favorites!



Please notice the bows and eyelashes...too cute!!!


Love the cheeks and eyebrows...
