Gabby's b-day was Thursday. I made her favorite dinner the night before because I had a mandatory meeting on her b-day. I also made her cake that day and put up her decorations. She also wanted to make her class cookies to hand out on her birthday so Wednesday was a little crazy town. On her actual birthday I was able to go into work late and make her a birthday breakfast.
Most of Scott's family came up for the 3 day weekend to celebrate Gabby's b-day. They rented an airbnb in Eagle. Friday night we came to the house and had Valentine fondue for dinner and the Valentine Rascal came and delivered SO many presents. It was pretty crazy loud. The kids were ecstatic. The kids spent the night and Scott and I went home and slept in on Saturday. We met up with everyone at Five Guys for lunch and then we went to a little kid craft at a store. The rest of the afternoon people chilled out either at our house or the Eagle house. I was in charge of dinner that night so everyone came over and we had sweet pork burritos/salads for dinner. Today some of us went swimming with the kids at the Y. The water was warm. I loved that. I HATE cold pool water. We've been lounging around since then. It's Gordon's birthday so we will have roast and brownie sundaes tonight per his request. I think tomorrow we will hit Pojos.
I finished my photo wall! Yay! If I had ordered these canvas pictures from a company it would have cost $600! Instead I bought plain canvas from a craft store, painted the sides, ordered pics from Costco and mod podged them on. It cost me about $60 I think. I think it turned out great! I'm happy.

|Tried to figure out placement on the wall.|
|Placed them up. I used command strips and some of them kept falling down but they've been staying on for days now so fingers crossed there!|
|I didn't count the how many pics each kid had and the kids pointed out immediately how many they were each in. Of course! Oh well. It wasn't even. Oh well! It was hard enough to pick the pictures out in the first place. I did pretty good I think.|
|Gabby wanted a ukulele.|
|Gabby put all the candles on her cake. I guess she's 16. But really she is 10.|
|Gabby's Valentine envelope "a dragon destroying a city!"|
|The Valentine Rascal strikes!|
|Scott is such a dork. He grabbed the rats to play with while he was getting ready for bed the other night. Ha.|
