Week 4

It's been another great week.  I'm so blessed to have so many great friends and co-workers.  My birthday celebration lasted almost 2 weeks in all with 4 different cakes! Am I spoiled or what?  It was all great but now back to healthy eating and exercise.

Here are the pictures from last week:

Day 22- Sunday, 1/22/12
Happy Birthday to me!  Unfortunately we had to leave the mountains and come home today, but we did stop at Cheesecake Factory on the way to pick up a chocolate peanut butter cake--yum! 

Day 23- Monday, 1/23/12
Brandon lost yet another tooth at school.  I love the little necklace holder they give them to keep the tooth safe.  He has a slight tear/dirt streak running down his right cheek because the blood freaked him out.  This is his 7th tooth--you'd think he'd know the drill by now, but I guess the sight of blood is a bit scary no matter what.

Day 24- Tuesday, 1/24/12
I'm driving with new tires today.  John was kind enough to take my car in yesterday and have them installed.  It was an unexpected necessity which hurts the pocket book especially after we just had to replace the tires on John's car last week--double whammy!

Day 25- Wednesday, 1/25/12
Tyler got a huge Mega Bloks Halo set for Christmas but over 100 pieces were missing--no joke!  We contacted customer service and luckily they were great and sent him all the pieces he needed.  The package came in the mail today so you know how he spent his afternoon.  Turns out during packaging they put in 2 of the same bag of pieces and left out the second required bag which means he now has duplicate extras.  We've had this happen with a couple larger Lego sets too and their customer service was also fabulous.

Day 26- Thursday, 1/26/12
Score!  Brandon had some GameStop money to burn and really wanted to buy Skylander figures but they are hard to find.  I just happened to check in Davis today while running errands and found the set he's been waiting for.  Now that's a happy boy!  The best part is the game also encourages him to draw and create his own characters and cards.  I love finding this kind of inspired work left on our kitchen table.

Day 27- Friday, 1/27/12
Here's our Bella girl eagerly waiting for some attention.  She knows that after work, school and homework its her time for some love and games.  I can't believe she'll be 3yrs old in a couple months.  Seems like just yesterday we brought the energetic bundle of fur home. 

Day 28- Saturday, 1/28/12
What a beautiful day in the city!  We headed to San Francisco and spent the day at the wharf before attending a friend's party not far from there.  You couldn't have asked for better weather.  It was so sunny and nice with no wind or fog.  We had a great time eating out, exploring the aquarium, visiting the sea lions, taking in a magic show and partying with wonderful friends-- the perfect way to end our week.

That's all folks!  Thanks for stopping by.
See you next week.
