Birthday Party

Well yesterday was Alex's birthday! So to celebrate his day, the girls and I decided to surprise him at work. We started first thing in the morning and started mixing a yummy chocolate cake from scratch! Can you believe the recipe called for Mayo????? Anyway, of course after getting it poured into the cake pan the girls HAD to lick the bowl. I thought it was so dang cute I just had to get pictures. I tried to tie their hair back, but it only worked a little. They still got cake batter everywhere! Oh well, it was really fun. We headed to Alex's work and picked him up a Subway Sandwich and surprised him with Lunch and cake. We even brought candles and sang to him. The cake and frosting turned out great! And Alex was really surprised to see us. Later that evening we (the girls and I) took Alex out to eat at Texas Roadhouse. We all had a good time. I will post his email to the family just below the pictures.


Anna and the kids and I went out last night for my birthday. Our favorite place to eat as a family is Texas Roadhouse. It has a way layed back atmosphere that allows the kids to enjoy their experience. Our girls eat there better than anywhere else. I always order the same thing- baked potato, 8 oz stake, with a slab of ribs, wonderful roles, peanuts, etc. Anyone who has kids could perhaps feel as happy as I have these last few years raising our kids and spending time with them. My kids are truly unique and energetic. Last night I just spent some quality time appreciating my family and watching my girls interact with each other. The two make me laugh a lot, because they are totally different and complement each other in a really fun way. Well, things are good right now. I am getting my truck painted through BSU's auto body shop. It will take about 3 months to complete and will not cost that much compared to getting it done somewhere else. I am just glad to have it under a roof and not outside in the weather all winter due to the van kicking it out of the garage. Well, that's all from here. Enjoy the rest of the week and your weekend. Thanks for the contribution to dinner last night mom and dad! Later.
