January 7, 2010

Tonight Daddy used the cookbook he got for Christmas to make dinner.  The cookbook in question?  Bobby Flay’s Burgers, Fries and Shakes.  The recipe he chose was called Cheyenne Burgers, served with homemade onion strings.  Just yummy.

While Zan made the barbecue sauce and the burgers, I made the onion rings.  Yeah, a tad bit greasy, I know, but oh-so yummy.

And the burgers?  Need I say more than this:

Didn’t think so.

We had a really pretty sunset last night.

I had a hard time getting a nice shot, however, since we were on our way to snag some Subway for dinner and Troy had no desire to wait while I took a picture.

I was an idiot.  I forgot to take even ONE picture.  DOH.

Oh well.  Back to the drawing board. LOL

January 4, 2010 was Madison Rayne’s 8th birthday.  She went to lunch with Daddy, Grandpa and Taylor.  From there, they went to Build-A-Bear.

And then, after Girl Scouts, we had cake.

Maddie, early in the morning.  Loverly, isn’t she?  LOL  Poor kid.

P1020001

Maddie at the grocery store.  She’s not all that enthused, can ya tell?

P1020002

Taylor insisted on climbing into the back of the cart and yet refused to let me take her picture.  Hmph.

P1020004

Maddie sitting on the step stool, playing on my laptop.  Unfortunately, Tiger also seems to think this step stool is his.  So, they decided to share.

Troy’s grandma, Uncle Jimmy and Jimmy’s friend, Judy, came into town the day after Christmas.  This was the farewell dinner at P. F. Chang’s.  Uncle Jimmy is impersonating a walrus.  I think the moustache adds something, don’t you?

And Madison, imitating Uncle Jimmy impersonating a walrus.

January 1, 2010

So, the girls spend New Year’s Eve with their Auntie Annie and cousins Kyrstin and Logan.  Since Annie lives on the other end of the earth from us, we met for lunch at Claim Jumper on New Year’s Day.

Taylor and Logan.

And again… this time it’s Maddie that’s looking the wrong way.  Why is it always MY kids?

Logan thinking he’s going to escape the camera.

And finally, Logan showing off one of his many talents.

Starting Over…

I fell horribly behind last year and just kinda gave up on all of this.  I’m going to try and do better this year.  Starting now.
