Today is Gretchen's birthday - Happy Birthday Gretchen - and two days ago was Stephen's birthday - Happy past Birthday Stephen!
We had a good Labor Day weekend. Or at least I did. Alvin worked in the yard for a total of 11 hours plus hiring a man to work along side of him for the same amount of time. He finally came to his senses and decided to get some help with our yard. Needless to say the front and back are both clean and trimmed. I just wish it could stay that way.
We celebrated Stephens birthday with dinner on Sunday evening. Beef Madagascar, cheesy onion bake, baked potatoes, buttered peas and rolls. Of course we had "Stephen's favorite cake" for dessert. Good food, good kids, good puppies and good company!
Monday late afternoon we went to Oreganoes in Gilbert to celebrate Gretchen's birthday. I actually have photoshop class tonight so that spoiled having her dinner on her exact day. The pizza and salad were good. The kids actually gave a thumbs up for the pizza which is not always the case. Cooper would be a good taste tester for the "perfect tasting pizza." Then we went back to Gretchen's new home to have cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. A perfect relaxing afternoon and evening.
I have been spending most of my weekends lately helping Gretchen get organized in her home. She is almost there - so exciting to see everything find its right place and to see things hung on the walls and new light fixtures and fans finally installed.
