Birthday Fun

Another birthday has come and gone. And for all of you that like to give me a hard time about getting old…just a reminder that I am still in my twenties :)

I woke up on Saturday morning to Casey getting Gavin’s breathing treatments & breakfast taken care of, birthday cards and the Mumford & Sons CD. I also got a new wireless HP printer, which may sound lame to some of you, but we haven’t had a printer in over two years and I am constantly looking for new projects (for myself and Gavin) and am psyched that I can now print them off at home…without even having to plug my computer into it :)

Saturday evening Gavin went to church with his Grandma & Grandpa (and spent the night with them) while Casey and I headed to the country club to do a food tasting. All of the couples getting married there this summer/fall were in an attendance and we ate for 3 1/2 hours straight. It was so good and I don’t even want to think about how many calories we consumed! We ended the night meeting up with friends downtown with the plan of having just a drink or two…and we ended up staying out until bar close, whoops! Luckily we had nothing planned for Sunday and lazed around with Gavin in pjs.

I am positive that Casey is glad that month of February is over. His mom, Gavin, my mom and I all have February birthdays, and that doesn’t include Valentine’s day!

For my mom’s birthday, Gavin painted her “picture.” For all the other mom’s out there, keep an eye out for your craft stores putting the canvases on sale. Gavin loves creating art work, and this is a way to have their art hanging on the walls without needing a frame! I didn’t get a picture of the final product, sorry, but this kid loves to be creative and asks me to paint nearly everyday!


Soon I am going to need to try my friend Molly’s idea. Some water, a paintbrush, and construction paper. They use the water to “paint” a picture…hours of fun and no mess!

  1. Great idea about the canvas! Once I introduced real paint to Jack, it was hard to have him "paint" with water - but he still likes painting our deck with water in the summer. Another fun idea is putting a bunch of snow in a big tupperware bin and bringing it inside on the table and putting shovels and spoons and stuff in there. Just make sure it's clean snow, because he'll probably eat some too - HA!
