August 6, 2009 at 7:45pm

September 5, 2009 at 10:57am

* Joey and I have been planning his 9th birthday party for a week. When he came up with a guest list of 20 kids and the location fell through, I offered him cash and a fun family activity in lieu of the party and was thrilled for a change to have such a mercenary kid. Mother. Of. The. Year.
September 17, 2009 at 5:04pm

* the office :)
September 17, 2009 at 6:57pm

My lifting buddy

She can't really spot me on the bench press, but Ainsley is very enthusiastic, and a great flexibility coach. I'll be struggling to touch my toes, and she'll say, "No mom, you're doing it wrong. Just do this. See, it's easy!"

Here she is working out with me this morning. We've taken a page from Rob's book and are watching a Palladia concert. This one is Jason Mraz's Beautiful Mess.

Epic. Awesome. Music. Thank you Natalie, for posting your favorite music on your facebook page so I could discover him last year.

Festival of Trees

Ainsley had a performance at the festival of trees yesterday. It was pretty hilarious watching her grab the little girl closest to her so she wouldn't slip in her tap shoes. As my aunt Jan said, all they really had to do to entertain us is walk out on the stage looking cute. Here she is after the show with her best non-cousin friend.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

Well, the force must be with us. In addition to the reflections contest and the fabulous brownies, we scored big in the raffle at the company party. There were around 10 prizes, and our tickets got picked four times! It was actually a little embarrassing. Of course there was a one prize per couple limit, but we walked away with the complete set of Seinfeld DVDs. I may need to call one of my Idaho friends and have them purchase a lottery ticket for me! :) And of course I'll need to create a new label for the blog: "winnings." Or maybe I can tag it as "traditions" and keep the luck coming...
