Happy Birthday!

Yesterday was my birthday, and we celebrated by spending the day at my parents' house after Mass at Resurrection. We had a steak dinner with banana sundaes for dessert. Jake also took me out on Saturday for burgers at Red Robin. Grandma Poynter came over on Friday with the lovely cake shown above. She also had a fun time with Gabriel, who seemed to have fun with her, as well:

Finally, last night Jake introduced me to a disgusting visitor. For scale, notice the black door latch in the upper right of the picture. This guy was huge!

Gabriel's Bad Mood

I finally got a good shot of one of Gabriel's AMAZING frowns. Usually, I'm too compassionate to take pictures while he's upset, but today I took the time to shoot this before snatching him up. I tried playing some Bach on youtube for him, but that seemed to make the situation worse! I guess he still needs time before his tastes refine enough for that.

This is just another one of those blogs to keep family and friends up to date on what's happening in our lives. I'm new at this whole blog thing, so don't be surprised if it eventually crashes and burns; there's no way of knowing now how faithful I'll be to it, but I'm prepared to give it a try.
