Tonight, Ben and I bought some remote control cars! They are called 1 Badd Ride. Ben's is silver and mine is green.
Assembling our cars.
Almost time to race!
Charlie was a good little assistant.
WHEE! Racing our cars! So fun.
It's Mom's birthday today!!! Mer had us all over for a birthday party. Pete made some delicious salsa, and look how CUTE!!
It's a salsa monkey!
We played some Apples to Apples.
Mer made fancy cappucinos.
Birthday cake time!
Mer put the candles on in a heart!
Mom did a good job making a wish!
MMM! Cake and ice cream!
In other news, Pete is growing a mullet! It's just a baby right now, but let's follow its progress as it grows and grows!
Mr. Studlyhunk was so impressed with Ben's lasagna-eating skills that he bought us dinner this Saturday night!!! I guess it was a congratulatory gesture, since Ben beat him at two lasagna eating competitions in a row. He bought us a deluxe lasagna dinner and delivered it himself. What a GUY!
Tonight we got a big group of folks together to play euchre at the Crystal. There was this guy sitting at the bar that had been there the week before, too:
Suzanne looking mysterious!
It was Dad's weekend, and this Dad bought us a round of beers! YUM!
Suzanne and me!
Tonight, Ben's mom invited us over for her famous lasagna. Mr. Studlyhunk was invited as well. Since Ben totally won the last lasagna eating competition, Mr. Studlyhunk demanded a rematch.
They were neck and neck. Bite for bite.
But then Ben went in for THIRDS!! Vana looks proud.
He's seriously going to eat that third piece.
Look at the size of that bite!
Ben daydreams about how awesome it was to WIN earlier that night.
Luckily, Mr. Studlyhunk and Ben can remain friends, even after such an embarassing defeat.
I have been doing quite a bit of embroidering recently. Here are some of the things I've made!
My friend Beth commissioned me to do a portrait of her friend's cat Leopold as a Christmas gift.
Anne is really into owls these days, so I embroidered an owl onto a hoodie for her:
Ben really wanted one of those velvety vellux blankets, so I got one for him and embroidered a fight scene between a unicorn and a robot onto it. RARR!:
