Happy birthday to my Superman~

My baby turned 45 this year. I am so proud of Conrad & of all his accomplishments, & I wanted to show it by throwing him a fancy birthday party. I talked to our good friends, Sheena & Tommy, owners of Thai Palms (hands down the best Thai food in town) & made arrangements to have Conrad's party at their restaurant on Saturday, which happened to be Conrad's actual birthday. They printed off cute menus for Conrad (I loved this!!!) & did a fantastic job with the seating. My sisters & our soon to be brother-in-law, Ty, drove up from Portland (which was AWESOME to see them & hug them!!!). The turnout was perfect. We had family, some of Conrad's coworkers & friends. We are so blessed to be surrounded by so many amazing people, my gratitude is beyond words.

Happy birthday sweetheart. I love you. And, you're hotter than ever! ;-p

A Visit to the Dentist

This picture had me cracking up when I looked at it. I swear, Bronwen & Ava look like they're preparing to blast off into outer space!

Cate also had her dental appointment (her very first one!). I would've taken a photo of her, but I was too busy holding her hands down with her body on my lap, & her head on the dentist's lap as he cleaned her teeth. She pretty much screamed & cried the whole time through her cleaning, which was nothing more than when I use the sonicare on her at home. I think it was more a matter of pride. "How dare anyone put their fingers in my mouth!" Haha!

Conrad went with us, & secretly I was happy he had to hear the crying too ;-p

Slumber Party!!!

On Friday, September 16, 2011, Bronwen & Ava officially had their first slumber party! We've been friends of the Tu's for about a year, as we met through our daughters (Chanel & Bronwen were in first grade together & are in the same class this year, too). Little did we know that it was Chanel's first time to spend the night at a friend's house!
I picked up the girls (all three, since Ava is big!) & we headed to McDonald's for Happy Meals! We got home & everyone decided to ride scooters & draw with chalk until Conrad got home. When he got home, we all dressed in our pjs & turned on the jumper in the backyard. The girls proceeded to make a disaster with play-doh outside!
After snacks & getting ready for bed, the girls went to Bronwen's room & saw the blow-up mattress all cozy with plenty of blankets, waiting for them. I heard them a few times at night (they were trying to be sneaky & go downstairs in the dark -for what, I don't know), but by 10 they were sound asleep.
They had a great time. :-) Here's to milestones!
