Birthday Weekend

This weekend the we celebrated my birthday (1/26) and Lexi's birthday (1/27). Lexi got lots of presents and really enjoyed them. I got a big birthday cookie and Lexi got a dozen cupcakes covered with a THICK layer of buttercream icing. Needless to say we got our sugar for the month.

My mom stayed with Lexi and Nate while Me, Chris, Bobby and Darlene went to the mall. Bobby and Darlene shopped while Chris and I got to do that quiet, romantic thing we've been wanting to do for a long time - we got new glasses.

Damn, getting old sucks :)

While I was waiting for our glasses we went to the Genghis grill for dinner. Its a Mongolian grill meaning you take a bowl and fill it with the meats, vegetables, spices and oils that you want then they cook it up for you. I really like Mongolian grills because if you don't like the food its your own fault.

I posted pictures of the birthday party on our photo site. Enjoy!

Mid Janurary update

Not much going on so far. Last weekend we put up all the xmas lights and this weekend I got the leaves mowed up and bagged. I took the kids to McDonald's today and they played around.

We took Thumbs to get his blood tested to make sure the hyperthyroid medicine was working okay. The Thyroid was okay but Thumbs has a Urinary Tract Infection. So in addition to the thyroid medicine for the next two weeks we have to take a dropper full of antibiotics and make him take it (twice a day). Fortunately I picked up the medication and had them show me the best way to give a cat medicine through a dropper.

We did take the kids last weekend to Toys R Us to spend some of their allowance. Nate got a "Home Depot" tool box and work stool and Lexi got a Barbie cheerleader dress and light up pompoms.
