For the third time in four years, I took home the honors in our annual family Burger-Off. While normally a two-way race between Kathy and myself, this year saw the inclusion of Ken as a third party candidate. I went with the Sweet Hot Thai Burgers, one of my personal favorites. I didn’t have time to go big on presentation like in 2010…
It took us a while to get used to the idea of getting a new dog to replace Rudy, but we found Axel online through ARF and just had to rescue him. He’s a very sweet dog, loves the girls, and is faster than lightning.
One of the unexpected bonuses about the design of the new house was this little wall section that I thought would prove the perfect little isolation barrier. Kind of like what they used to use on the Dating Game. Problem is, it doesn’t really work. It may look like it in this photo, but the “sitting still” part lasted just long enough to get this shot.
It doesn’t seem possible, but we’ve known the girls for two years now. Though we tried to keep their second birthday party a low-key affair, they got so many presents it looked like a Christmas morning aftermath at the end of the evening. We’re starting to get used to a house with five small children running around. Scary.
Well the girls had their first official trick-or-treating experience last night and really enjoyed it. The only hitch was that they usually tried to give their candy back at the next house. Guess they were just trying to redistribute their wealth.
