Grandpa's Birthday.

Yesterday was my Grandpa Scott's 80th Birthday. Grandma planned a small surprise party for him. He was home, and everyone started showing up, we didn't want to have him go away and then jump out and yell SURPRISE when he got home. That is probably not a great idea for an 80th birthday. I was able to get some great pictures of both Grandpa and Grandma, and I can't wait to get them printed and scrap them. Here is the card I made for him.

I just finished watching Julie and Julia, for the second time. I really like that movie. We all know that I can't cook very well and some of you even know what happened on Christmas day when I tried to bake an apple pie. (Let's just say that we had a flaming apple pie). I really hate not being able to cook very well, I have learned a few thinks from my SIL Nikki and there are a few things that I can now cook that involve more than just boiling water. I know that there is no way I could ever do what Julie Powell did and cook all of those Julia Child recipes, but inspired by the movie I am going to challenge myself to cook Julia Childs Boeuf Bourguignon Recipe for Sunday. I'll be sure to post pictures of it no matter how it turns out.

Speaking of posting pictures I promised to post a picture of our new table and chairs a long time ago. I'm sorry I forgot all about it until I was going threw pic's from Dan's birthday and found this one of the girls not so patiently waiting for cake and ice cream. (Please pay no attention to the coats everywhere)

On the way to Grandpa's birthday party I had to stop at the store. Dan and the girls stayed in the car with my camera.

I guess there is something funny about pork butt roast.

OMG that last picture is too funny! Did they tell you that they took that picture, or just left it there for you to find later? Can't wait to see the pages you create from your grandpa's birthday party!
