Blake's 12th Birthday

We spent Blake's birthday playing arcade games, kicking butt in laser tag, and bowling. Afterward we had dinner at Red Robin followed by yummy ice cream cake back at home. Blake's friend Jonathan joined us and stay the night. Blake is loving the cars, collector cards, and skateboard he got. He put on his Dale Jr shirt right way despite my trying to convince him to exchange it for a smaller size (he loves it). They've even put his new slip-n-slide to use already. He's having a bast with the NASCAR Kart Racing game for the Wii. We put a deposit down to reserve a Nintendo DSi for him and it's scheduled to be released on the 5th. He used some cash and a gift card to buy a new slot car track and plays with it ALL the time. We enjoyed our day with our little man and think he enjoyed it too. Blake says thank you for all the cards, calls and gifts!

The Cinderella Ball

On the 13th, Sam escorted Emily the the Girls Scout Cinderella Ball. They danced the night away and had some great father-daughter time. Aren't they cuties?

She's got skills!

Miss Emily was chosen for and performed in her school's talent show. She dazzled the crowd with a fun hula-hoop act. It was fun to see all the kids. Performances included LOTS of Taylor Swift Songs, dancing and gymnastics, piano and violin playing, and even The Blues Brothers!

We enjoyed a nice Valentine's Day together before I went to work. Even though Sam had gotten home in the wee hours of the morning from Daytona, he went out and got me a coffee and cinnamon roll before I woke up. He also got me a box candy, a teddy bear and some flowers. Isn't he the sweetest?
