{Happy Birthday Mikey}

Mike is "30" I can not believe he is that old! J/K {my day is coming} Mike did not want to do anything big or rather at all for his birthday. So in true Dee Dee style I planned a surprise dinner out with friends. It is rough to have a birthday on Halloween we you are a kid, even worse when you are a daddy. We were unable to celebrate on his birthday {we did sing to him at the Halloween party} so we went out to dinner the next evening. We went to The Old Spaghetti Factory and had a blast. Neither Mike nor I had ever been so it was a lot of fun. The food was great and we were glad to spend in with a few friends {Devin and Jacquelyn, Shantel and Gerardo, & Arif and Karry} Happy thirty love, I love you. Can not wait to see what surprise I will have for you @ your 40th!

*** ok about the balloon hat. We were about to leave the restaurant and then the balloon guy came over. A few jokes later and Mike, Mr. I can take it, received the lovely hat. It was so funny, BONUS the kids loved it!***

{Best Buddy Sleep Over}

Happy Veteran's Day! There was no school today and so we invited Gavin's best friend Zach over for a sleep over. Gavin and Zach meet when they were 3 at TLC Preschool and for over almost 2 years they have had a standing play date on Tues. afternoons. It was a huge culture shock, to Gavin, when he started Kindergarten and did not have Zach with him {he is at a different school} So we try really hard to keep getting them together. They played, watched movies, ate popcorn, ad had fun with was/candy mustaches, even Ellie and Joey had one! It was fun to see those two together and having fun!

{Halloween 2009}


We had a lot of fun this Halloween. I still had family in town from the wedding we had the weekend before Halloween. We had a PaRtY at my aunt's house in Littleton! It was a lot of fun to spend time with cousins. Joey was a "hunter", Gavin was "Count Dracula" {thank you Amanda}, and Ellie Ann was a "50's girl". I used Gavin and Ellie's dance recital costumes from this spring and converted them. Joey had the camo shirts and some boots, he loved the $10 shot gun Mike picked out for him!! And also this Halloween was Mike's 30th birthday {that is another post, coming soon}
