My 40th Birthday!

Last Friday night my parents took me, my wife, my sister, 2 of my nieces and my nephew out for a nice birthday dinner. It was nice to get together with the family for dinner, we don't do it as often as we should.

Thanks Mom & Dad!

On Saturday, Laurie had a 40th party for me at the house. She made several different kinds of dips and made cupcakes with yellow and blue sprinkles.

Here are most of the gifts I received. I also got some money to buy some of the parts I will be needing to fix my Camaro.

Laurie also had bowls filled with my favorite candies (tootsie rolls, vanilla tootsie rolls, swedish fish, skittles and pez) set out for everyone to enjoy. She also had M&M dispensers around for the "kids".

I really enjoyed the weekend and don't feel any older even though I am "vintage" now.

Thanks for everything Honey.
I Love You

Easter Sunday!

Our niece Alexis

It was Chris's Mom and Dad's turn for Easter dinner this year. (we alternate holidays) There were 13 of us up there for dinner this year. We enjoyed the time with all of the family, but for some reason didn't take that many pictures. (strange for us)

We took the first picture, but 'borrowed' the second one from our niece Stephanie. If anyone left the house hungry, it was their own fault, there was plenty to eat.

We hope everyone had a great Easter with their family and friends. We will be posting about our Easter Monday soon.

The Living Room Is Done!

We got all of our decorating done today. (after raking and cleaning up the yard and gardens) At least for now, until I decide to change something or add something. =)
We really like the way this area turned out. We love the way the chairs look against the darker paint. Click HERE to see the old paint color if you missed it.
We found curtains that we like. They really look better in person. The colors are a lot closer in person.
Everything seemed to come together really well.
I told Chris the other day that we have lived here for 12 years and now our living room really feels like a living room.
Whoops, just realized Chris forgot to scrape the windows after he re-painted them.
