I use this blog to highlight some of the bigger things in our life - holidays, adventures, cute photos, etc. So, it may be a few weeks in between updates. If you want details about the day to day stuff, be sure to check out my 365 blog. (link should be on the sidebar) I update it every Friday.

Happy Birthday Sam

Sam turned 31 yesterday. We kept it low key. A few gifts, dinner out at Texas Roadhouse, and dessert at home. I think the kids were more excited about it all than Sam.
Tyler couldn't wait to see the presents opened. He was literally rubbing his hands together in anticipation.

I tried out a recipe for Boston Cream Pie Cheesecake for dessert. It was a lot of work but tasted good. The kids had fun slapping on the candles.

And it took what felt like forever, but he did get all the candles out in one breath :)

Birthday hugs from the kids

And while I'm at it, here are the lastest photos of the house. We (mostly just me on the painting part - I spend the day doing it while Sam is at work and Kaitlyn's at school) painted the powder bathroom and dining room (which will actually be my craft room).

And the master. (it's a deeper, dustier blue in person)
And put up tons of shelves and organized the garage.
We're getting there. My hope is that by the end of one more month we'll have all the major stuff done and I can concentrate on the fun decorating part.
