These pictures cracked me up. Alex wanted to point out that the kid with the donkey has a Georgia shirt on, and this is a typical pansy Georgian reaction. Strangely, this was the same reaction Georgia had while playing Bama this past weekend.

Is this kid (below) not the creepiest?!? I was laughing so hard, it's my favorite. And what's up with the girls outfits? Hooker prom? Small town Oklahoma prom? I swear that kids a vampire or something.

Happy Birthday Jo.....oshua!

Well, my second nephew turned 3. I can't believe it! They are growing so fast. Here are some pictures of the backyard festivities. Next year there will be a new addition to the family in the pictures!

Josh's much talked about blue cake.

Carson prepares to race in the number 88 car while uncle Russell (aka uncum) explains the rules.

Josh ready to go in his Jimmy Johnson car.

Singing happy birthday.

Blue tongue!

Pinata fun.

Candy! Swarm! Swarm!

Not so turbo charged.

Having a little "talk" with mommy. They had a disagreement about how much candy he could eat. He wanted to eat the whole bag as quickly as possible.

Fellow party goers.

Birthday Dinner

Well, I turned the big 3-0 this month. I happened to be in Salt Lake City, Utah for a meeting and so celebrated my birthday on the town. We went a little crazy and drank caffeine! Just kidding. We went to a delicious very authentic Italian restaurant and had a wonderful dinner. The atmosphere was great and the owner, Valter from the old country, came around to all the tables thanking everyone for coming. I highly recommend this place if anyone goes to SLC. Below is the documentation of the meal. Pasta-tastic!


This was our little waitress. She prepared the plates at our table each course. Her name was "O".

First course, scallops, spinach, shrimp and shaved calamari in butter sauce (and a nice bottle of chianti in the foreground).

Second course, handmade cheese ravioli with pesto, cream sauce and asparagus.

And third course, my favorite, chicken marsala. Dreamy.

My birthday wish.

Lemon gelato with lemoncello liquor in the middle.


And my new birthday earrings. Saphire drops, of course.

Fort Worth Weekend

Alex and I went to Fort Worth this weekend for the first TCU home game. The final was 67-7, not a great game, but still a good time.

Me and the Count, Laura and Sam's giganto bunny.

Burrow, burrow!

He wouldn't hold still for a picture.

Yessssss! Cotton candy!

Sam and Alex very intent on the game.

Go Frogs!

The new section of the stadium.

Ouch, the lumberjacks are hurtin'.
