I took the kiddos to the zoo last Monday. They have free admission every Monday through February. I figured it would be a little crowded being “free” day but I did not take into account it was also Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It is a little challenging to steer a stroller through all those crowded zoo streets.
Elizabeth(randomly states): Mommy my birthday is coming up.
Mommy: Yes, but it is still going to be a while. What do you want for your birthday?
Elizabeth: To get presents.
Mommy: What do you want your cake to taste like?
Mommy: Vanilla, Chocolate, strawberry, vanilla with sprinkles?
Elizabeth: I want Chocolate WITH sprinkles!
Mommy: Do you want Dora to be on it?
Elizabeth: Oh, it would make me SO, so happy to have Dora cake AND presents for my birthday!
Sorry I missed last weeks post. I had it ready to go on Monday but Tuesday media night was cancelled because I was sick and went to bed at 8:00. The rest of the week was spent passing a virus around and lots of middle of the night throw-ups. YUCK! I am very happy to report we all seem to be on the up swing. Brandon is still recovering. Hope everyone stays warm this weekend!

I don’t have much time tonight for a long update because we have been working on some other things. I wanted to post this most recent cake I made with the help of some friends for Taylor’s 16th birthday party! It was a lot of fun and let me just say I am glad that cakes don’t have to be perfect! Because while it may look decent in the picture the flaws were many!
Cuteness Quoted:Elizabeth (said in sweet tones) – Mommy, I’m glad you’re here with us because I love you!
I am glad to be here with you too sweet girl!

Here I am again, more than a little behind on updating the blog. This year I am going to try to be a more faithful blogger; meaning updating at least once a week. :) We have had a busy and fabulous last few months of the year! Here it is in a nutshell.
October first and foremost was Brandon’s birthday month. Each year he claims a birthday month rather than a birthday day because, well, really I think he thinks he is just that special. :) It is actually a running joke and we have a lot of fun with it. This year I tried to give Brandon a real birthday month by gifting him something each day. I would say it was a success and he really enjoyed it. I know I enjoyed it! Although I told him not to expect a birthday month again!
Throughout the month I would always blame the gift giving on the birthday month fairy. So on Brandon’s actual birthday we had a small get together. When we were there suddenly appeared a pink gift with my name on it. Apparently the “birthday fairy” had gotten me a gift; A NEW CAMERA. I was really surprised…which is a big deal for Brandon. The camera is a Nikon D-40 with a lens that goes from 18- 200 mm. I am trying to learn more about all of the features and I plan to take a class at Bakers in a month or so.
Watching him sky dive was one of my personal favorites!
