Birthdays Are Big in January

January has always been a big month for birthdays in our family....my Dad, my brother, my son, and my granddaughter all celebrate during January. The kids were here this weekend so we celebrated Morgan's birthday on Saturday. The day started off with a trip to the movies to see Moana. Grandpa went to the Gunshow while the rest of us went to Moana. It was actually a really good animated movie show that we all enjoyed. Then came the birthday dinner and party.





In case you were wondering, Morgan had a King cake for her birthday. She loves the fact that she can have a special cake because her birthday falls when they are available.


After the party, Steve, Helen, Morgan, and Cameron were off to a Monster Truck show. Angus came home with Grandma.

Sunday dawned on another birthday......Steve's big day.

We had to have a second King cake to celebrate!



You may have noticed the hat the birthday worn by the birthday pair. Helen found this wild hat and it immediately became the family birthday hat. Those are candles on the top and it says Happy Birthday on the front. There is also a Ronald McDonald's birthday plate that the birthday person uses.


It was a great weekend and I think both celebrants enjoyed their day!

A Quick Trip to WImberley, TX

Some days are just too nice to sit home so Birdie and I were off to Wimberley for a drive. We had a nice walk around town. They have a popcorn shop with more flavors of popcorn than you can imagine. The Kiss the Cook kitchen shop is always a must stop too.

Just a quick teaser on the boot statues.  If you haven't been to Wimberley or haven't been in a very long time, you need to visit just to see all the boots around town. Every one is different. Follow the "boots" link to read the story behind the boots.


We walked up to the Wimberley Pie Company but all they had that day was whole pies and we just wanted a piece.....so we settled on a visit to The Wooden Spoon for frozen yogurt. It's a nice friendly little shop. It was a great drive through the countryside and a fun visit to a neat place.
