Happy Birthday


Happy Birthday

Micki’s birthday was March 9th. We’re getting to the point in our marriage where the whole surprise thing or excessive and unnecesary gift phase is outgrown. This year asked her what she wanted for her birthday and she said she wanted the entry room redone. New wallpaper and fixture. So we went with Duane and Nel to shop for paper and fixtures. Their present to her was giving up a Saturday for the install. It was really fun.

We started early stripping (the paper) and finished by afternoon. It really was a dramatic transformation and she was really pleased. I think the best part was simply being together. A low-maintenance, high-end birthday celebration. Well, we did have a party that night too. Thanks Strods, Durochers, and Lukes for making it extra special!

Cabin Weekend


Group Shot

I haven’t blogged in awhile and wanted to grab some pics of our annual cabin trip. Chad took some high-end pics and made a Web gallery of the annual weekend of fun and friends. Fun time at the casino, BW3, cards, walks, Jay’s Sporting Goods, General Jim’s, and stoking the fire. This year was the first year Chuck and Dumont went on the hike, so we really kicked it up a notch. Plus, Todd made an amazing table that we were in awe of. We also got a preview of Bryan’s band’s new CD. Nice. Another year at the Cabin.
