wip 2.11.12

my birthday. three squared. and it snowed. of course it did. it's usually either bitter cold or snowing for my birthday. ;)

so did i do something special? maybe slept in a little later than usual. but then it was back to the friday routine. cleaning and groceries! we couldn't decide what we were going to do for eats. we finally decided to venture out despite the inclement weather. 

a certain someone trying to catch some slush. they weren't quite snowflakes yet.

birthday margarita. with a moscato side car. :-D my two favorites. tequilla and wine!

love the little hand nabbing a chip. 

and one of my favorite desserts.
fried ice cream.

that little hand nabbed my cherry. ;) and our waitress was kind enough to bring him a little plate of cherries.

and our lovely ride home! 

and then we watched a movie. i believe it was what's your number... not 100% sure though. silly, old memory.

breakfast of champions. okay, i couldn't eat the donut. it was stale. love that nick tried to bring me a little something though. cracked me up when he told me he bought me a heart shaped donut for my birthday! {and i totally just typed heart shaped birthday for my donut. perhaps i should go to bed. and not try to catch up on these silly posts!}

some computer time. 

then we headed to the lake central dance invitational. wanted to see nick's step sister {so much easier than dad's girlfriend's daughter} perform.  we were a little nervous because it was smack dab in the middle of ben's nap time. we decided to give it a go, that we could always leave if he wasn't cooperative.

he loved it. chilled on jer bear's lap for the majority of the time. ben would comment on their shoes. clap when they were done, and yell 'good job girls'. a few times, he even was dancing along with them. so cute!

my illegal photography. shhh...

we asked ben if he wanted to go home to nap. of course, he said no. and since he wasn't acting up, we decided to stay. not five minutes after we asked him if we should leave, he fell asleep. 

yup. in the middle of the gym. during the super loud performances.  the kid NEVER falls asleep in public. we couldn't believe it.

we left before we got to see all of the lake central teams. but we saw both of bri's. and that was all that mattered. ;)

ben and bri.

then we came home and napped. and when he was up, we ran a few errands.
he's obsessed with his trains. and putting things in his pockets.
so he was playing trains while we were at home depot.

quick stop at strack's for some beverages. he loves the car cart. i cannot tell you how much i dispise the car cart. smaller cart space and it is not the easiest thing to steer. 

our crazy ass cat. seriously. walking on the legs of the chairs. strange. 

and a naked-ish baby. he loves being naked. i guess considering that i heard nick was a streaker. and that i made it half way down the block naked when i was younger, i can't be too surprised. 

almost fully clothed to brush his teeth! 

family birthday party.
for some reason ben felt he needed to 'go somewhere'. so he insisted on putting on his shoes and packing up his 'pack pack'.

this was how we found him a few minutes later. i think it might have been a bit loud in the other room!

showing everyone how to use the phone.

time for cake!{ignore the red eyes. i'm feeling extra lazy. and apparently, the photographer {ahem nick}, didn't check the settings. oh well. 

then ben got the camera. 

okay. back to normal pictures.
pressie time. i had such a good helper. he opened. while i read cards. perfect.

the sign is now hanging in my office. love it! 

and i finally got to do the 'grandma' holiday shot. 

and just as the party was wrapping up, nick's mom, aunt and cousin stopped by to deliver ben some valentine's pressies.
