here is a little update on familia brower!
(ok, its not little, its long and includes alot of photos. but, if you stick around, i promise some of these pictures will make you smile!)
first and foremost, it was my birthday yesterday and we celebrated all weekend! yes, all weekend! thats how much i love my birthday. ok, not really. my dad and bo went out of town on saturday so we celebrated my birthday on friday! mom and larissa made a most scrumptious meal of homemade fettucini alfredo, grilled chicken, apple & gorgonzola salad, garlic bread and texas fudge cake with vaniller ice cream. it was sent from the heavens, it was SO delicious!
can you tell the kids put the candles on the cake? allison, i'll save you the trouble- there are 25 candles
carrie, this is the only recent picture of my buddha belly...somehow i try to avoid those...
here is sweet little ellie girl in my favorite outfit. she's hard to resist!
what happens when there's a birthday cake, birthday candles and three little kids who dont get to blow out the flames? a whole lot of this...
we relit the candles several times for the kids to have a turn blowing them out.
i have wanted this watch for oh so long, but couldnt come to grips with spending the money on it. i kept waiting for it to go on sale, but apparently its such a popular item that they dont think it will be going on sale any time in the near future. so, i guess a birthday is the perfect excuse :)
i should also add that this year was the year for hilarious cards! i appreciate all of the kind (and funny) thoughts from you all!
on saturday we went to golf safari!
if you can enlarge this next picture, you should! it was SO stinkin' hot! jack was even sweating from under his eyes... i didnt know that was even possible, but apparently it is
and yesterday we went and ate at iguana mia! i love fried, greasy mexican food! and nothing beats a free meal on your birthday!
lets not even talk about how silly this next photo is
alright, enough birthday talk.
lets get down to the nitty gritty.
in real life we have been learning how to dip oreos in milk:
