Happy, Happy Birthday ...

This is what I did on my birthday:

Watching Gpa on my birthday was mostly quiet ... thankfully!
This is what I had for breakfast (Aunt Liz is pictured having a little taste of birthday breakfast goodness):

Bananas with peanut butter and chocolate chips ... doesn't get any better than that! And isn't her little banana chocolate tree adorable?
This is my birthday cake (it's not pretty, but it was DELICIOUS!):

It's Chocolate and chocolate with chocolate drizzle, and best of all ... completely animal product free!
This is what Daniel gave me for my birthday:

Sweetest birthday present ever!
This is what I bought for myself on my birthday:

A Halloween shirt! Perfect!
Also, on my birthday, Daniel took me to Red Robin for dinner and to an awesome corn maze and Halloween Festival. I wish we had brought our camera for these other birthday activities, but ... alas, so goes life. It was a wonderful birthday!

It's a Good Thing He's So Cute!

I decided the other day that it's a good thing he's so darned cute. It helps to balance out the frustrating things that we have to deal with. Take a look at this! He was so funny and cute!

I was cracking up!

I'm Bored

I'm bored with our blog. I think it's because we haven't posted anything in a while. So, here's a quick update of things we've done recently:

Cirque show with Daniel's firm, VERY cool!

The Getty Center in LA. An art museum. We took Gpa, and he was scared. He kept saying how he was lost, and many kind people offered to help us ... even though, really, we didn't need help.

Uncle Gary has 17 chickens in the back that keep getting out of their pen. So we clipped their wings. It hasn't completely worked. Chickens still get out. Blasted chickens!!

Going to the LA temple. Beautiful!!

More adventures to follow...

A Book Recommendation:

The Agony and the Ecstasy: A Biographical Novel of Michelangelo Buonarroti, by Irving Stone

Was everyone getting uncomfortable with the David? How 'bout a little variety and something else to look at?
Michelangelo: the greatest sculptor, painter, architect the world has known. I can't wait to go to Italy someday and see his work in person!!

PS: the book is fascinating! What an incredible and hard life he lived!

My First Success...

... as a Seamstress!

When I graduated from High School, my mother bought me a sewing machine as a graduation present. Well, the above machine is not that which she bought me before. Long story short, she bought me the above machine (a Pfaff Creative 7510, or something) this summer, which is significantly better than the one she had bought me before. (did you get all that?)

I've been quite anxious to read about how to use it and to finish a project I started months ago at a Relief Society activity: namely, making a denim skirt out of an old beat up pair of jeans. Now that I have my own sewing machine, and in my possession (THANKS MOM!), I got to finish it the past couple of days.

It's not much, but I'm very excited about how it turned out! And I'm very impressed with my little machine!

Looking forward to many more fun and exciting projects to come!
