Happy 3rd Birthday Blake!

**PHOTOS ADDED 1/4/09**

I greet you from my comfy La-Z-Boy chair after a busy day!

My parents and brother are in town to visit. They arrived yesterday after a 7.5 hour delay at the airport, not due to weather, but a missing part for their plane. Fun times!

We decided to do something simple but near home today to get out at least for a little while, so we went to visit a classic/antique car museum near home. The kids really loved some of the famous ones, but also loved some of the classic cars that had unique paint jobs (skulls, flames, etc). They also adored the military section full of tanks, helicopters, jeeps, and more.

We ended the outing with a stop for hot dogs at a nearby place....Yummy! (I hate that I LOVE hot dogs when I'm pregnant. I usually think they're disgusting, but right now they are OH SO GOOD!).

We came home, and were soon joined by Grandma, Aunt Kate, and Scary Steve. The two families visited and everyone was having a good time. Dinner time couldn't come soon enough for the boys, who were anxiously awaiting cupcakes!! We finished dinner, Blake opened his presents, and we ALL had cupcakes. Yum!

Cupcakes for the birthday boy!
One of the favorite presents
Everyone (except the birthday boy) playing Hungry Hungry Hippos!

Photos will come soon, but puting them on now would require me to leave my comfy chair... which ain't gonna happen! Christmas updates coming soon too!!
