Because it wouldn’t do to say I hate the computer operator who just deleted a wonderful re-telling of our fantastic & relaxing birthday yesterday – Stupid buttons!! That’s what I get for typing without my contacts.
We had a great and relaxing day. We’ve never had such a relaxed birthday. Kurt loved his movie! It was so much fun. Karra has declared it her new favorite movie & asked for the DVD for her birthday (along with the dragon keeper books). We ended up right down front & Kurt got scared a couple of times & cried when they captured the dragon. All in all, he really liked it. It had everything little boys like, fighting, dragons & lots of blowing up! It is just a wonderful movie – can hardly believe it came out of Hollywood. We did manage to fill the memory card on the camera so there is a possibility that you’ll see Kurt’s snow mountain cake in the nearish future. We found a terrific dirt bike mountain cake in Family Fun magazine, but Kurt doesn’t like chocolate cake, so we did it up in vanilla and put a monster truck on it. It is so yummy. I’ve never made a 5 layer cake before. We propped up the back with fat pretzel rods so that it didn’t topple over!!
I haven’t gotten my trim stained & my doors painted because Joel’s been fighting a cold & hasn’t wanted to do much beyond sit in his chair. The pressure is really on to get it done before Life Groups start.
I didn’t get soccer blankets done (but on Thursday, I got all of the mending out of my sewing room except for one pair of Joel’s jeans!!!) & I froze my bahumbus off at Kurt’s practice last night. Kristen’s will be cold tonight too & still no blanket. Joel begged off on the games tomorrow since he’s been sick & has a business trip. Karra & I will endure! Kristen has a double header, so we’ll be there all morning. Kurt’s friend, Jared, is coming so the guys can go to Churck E Cheese for the traditional birthday outing. We girls will hang out & take Karra to lyrical practice.
Well, that’s not as good as the original, but it will have to do. We have birthday pictures today & music lessons, so I’d better get me together.
And that’s what’s happening on the homestead.
