Mandy Jo told us that she is pregnant again by opening this book! I'm so excited!

Girlfriend Gift Gala

Okay, so it wasn't exactly a gala, but we did exchange gifts and eat a lot of food.
We did books this year:
(My face was hideous, so I just showed the important things.)

Good holiday fun. However my favorite part of the evening might have been when Anna thought a breast pump was something you used to pump milk directly into your baby's mouth through a tube. Sigh. Good holiday fun.

Prodigal Cousin

I hadn't seen my cousin Jay in over two years until a week ago. He came to the city for work and wanted to stop by. I was so excited! Bonus: Look how well we coordinate/blend in with the walls! That made the reunion complete.

Birthday Dreams

Well, I think Lucas had a very happy birthday last Tuesday.

We started things off with a good exam at my doctor's office. Then had a hot-and-ready pizza from LC (gotta love the convenience, at least).
Picked up the kids after school and surprised him at work with some Sonic. I think they are prime replacements for Kevin Ogle and Linda Cavenaugh:
Then dinner with family and a jam session. Lucas is now officially the proudest uncle ever.

And finally, our friends threw him a party. I don't think he knew who all was there because he was too excited about his cake.

Happy 28th Birthday, Lucas!
