Cupcake Party and Lights out!

On my birthday, the girls from mommy's group got together to have a cupcake party. Very nice and always a good time. They are all super nice and a joy to be around. The group shot was taken by Emma (age 4) so I left it untouched for memories sake and a good laugh. I personally think she did a bang up job.

My Auntie JaLayne, Cousin Eric and Cousin in-law Scott drove into town on Saturday night only to find us sitting in the dark hoping that the electricity would return soon so we could finish making the beef stew that we had been frantically cooking. Let me clarify. Our sitting in darkness was due to a power outage, not someone's failure to pay the bill! We finally decided to finish cooking supper on the grill. It was a very nummy and romantic candle light supper. The first picture is without a flash (for effect) and the second was taken with a flash. Wow, what a difference a flash makes. All in all we are happy that they made it safely and are happy to have them here.

Thankfully it has slowed down, but for about the last two weeks every other word out of LaRee's mouth has been I need. Example: I need Ice Cream, I need baby doll, I need shoe, I need outside, I need slide, I need bath, I need Grandpa, etc. etc. It was getting to the point of driving us crazy. Surprise, some of you thought we were there already. Not so. Sione kept telling her, "Your two, you don't need anything!" Each time she would profess she "needed" something. Sione and I would look at each other and ask "where is she coming up with this stuff?"I mean it's not like we as a couple are prancing around the house stating, I need laundry, I need sleep, I need T.V. I need help, I need ride. Well, we were soon to find out as we stood in the middle of Wal-Mart and Sione turns to me and says , "What else do you need?" and I quickly reply" I need milk and bread and I also need bananas."
