I don't know if I've ever gone this long without blogging. Let's just say that life has been busy. Well not necessarily busy, I'm just busy enjoying it. I'll do a little recap of a few things that have been going on.
Drew's birthday party was a success. We had a few mishaps but that's to be expected. The biggest was the cake catastrophe. I will spare you the details. It all turned out fine. Drew loved his cake and that was all that mattered.
The "Birthday Tree" was a hit. I think everybody thought I was insane but Drew loved it. He had been saying since Christmas that for his birthday he wanted a Christmas tree at his party. I wasn't about to drag out our huge tree so I decorated a small one with Lightening McQueen foam shapes and ribbon.
I won $1000.00 on a scratcher ticket. I never buy them but for some reason thought I would give it a shot.
After the first number matched and I saw that I had won $50.00 I thought, "Sweet! Fifty dollars!" Each number ended up matching and each prize was $50.00. What a nice little bonus that was!
For a few days our backyard was a lake.
One day it was so bad that our street was completely under water! All I have to say is - Rain, rain, go AWAY!
We thought it would be fun to take a little trip to Animal Paradise (used to be Exotic Animal Paradise). It cost us $33.00 to see a few deer, something that we named a zonkey because it looked like a mix between a zebra and a donkey, a couple of goats, cows, and...
this big smelly camel that Drew was brave enough to feed. I now know why they dropped the "Exotic" part from the name. Seriously it was horrible. The only part that made it fun was that Drew loved it.
This little guy is getting cuter (and chubbier) every day.
And he already needs a hair cut! Look at the hair over his ears! The back is really long too.
I was hoping that we could make it a year before we cut it but at this rate his eyes will be covered!
So there is my little recap! :)
