Birthday Sombrero

Today is Blain's birthday.  Last night we ate out at a Mexican restaurant and we surprised him with a chocolate cake dessert at the end of the meal.  The waiters came out and plunked a sombrero on his head and clapped and shouted "Happy Birthday!"  Blain was a good sport about it, the kids loved it and everyone else had a good laugh.

Me! When I'm 100

This is one of Lindsey's school art masterpieces that she brought home.  I laughed so hard when I first saw it.  I guess as you age your neck gets longer.  I'm feeling pretty long-necked these days.

Patriotic School Night

At a school art night and for President's Day, Lindsey's class sang several patriotic songs including Yankee Doodle Dandy.  The grand finale was with the kids using plastic plates like cymbals.

We also went into Lindsey's classroom and admired several pictures the students had drawn and put on the walls, including several masterpieces by Lindsey.  Plus there was a great story about Abraham Lincoln she had written.  The cutest was a story about her father which said, "Daddy gets up in the morning, drinks coffee, watches TV and then gets us breakfast and ready for school and makes my lunch."   She's got a pretty special Daddy.
