Does anybody Blog anymore?

Or is everybody on Facebook? I caved to the pressure and invitations to be friends and I'm on it. I was very skeptical and negative but it's been so fun connecting with old high school buddies but it is consuming way too much of my free time!

Sick of birthday cake!

Ben choose to have his party at Chuck E. Cheese. I despise this place...but it wasn't my birthday!The party got off to a bad start...Steve had an unexpected campout with the scouts so I was left alone..I got one of my ctr 9s to be a mommies helper ...the minute we walked into the chaos I was inline to pay for the pizza and tokens, Ben had to go pee but didn't tell anyone and didn't know where to go so he peed his pants naturally. Luckily I had a bunch of clothes in the back of my car that I've been meaning to drop off at the Salvation Army, they were a a little small but they worked...the one time procrastination paid off! My friend Sarah, Brooklyn's mom helped me out alot too...thank goodness for friends...the kids had a really good time and Ben said it was great, that's all that matters!

It's official..his party with friends wasn't until friday but his actual birthday was the monday before, he was very upset about this and said he was not 5 until his party with his friends.

He had 7 friends to help him celebrate: Taylor, Emily, Brookly, Blake, Jonathan, Sophie, and Matthew and his brother Lucas who had a hard time being happy for his brother, he keeps complaining "when is it going to be my bday?"

After several parties and much cake the birthday festivities are over! Steve's is the 14th and Ben's is the 19th. We had 2 family parties one with the Fenskes and another with the Woznys (who surprised us with a visit on the way home from their trip to the Grand Canyon) I made cupcakes for Steve and his scouts on his bday and then had cupcakes last night! Believe it or not...cuz I love cake...I am sick of cake!

This is a great lady and I'm not kissing up Steve. Her family is so important to her and she so selflessly gives, cooks, cleans, babysits, and is an awesome grandma. Thankyou Ruthann for being you and letting us take over your house for the week.We had some good times and made some great memories!

Steve's brother David, his wife Cinthya(she's a really cool dancer), their boys Dylan and Preston, along with Uncle Paul came home from Utah for a week. We went to FO FO Figgleys, too bad uncle Paul threw up in the car and had to go home. Luckily he felt better Christmas morning!

I love this picture. I also love no matter the distance between them when cousins get together it's like they've never been apart. Ben adores Preston he was by his side the whole week! It was very cute.

The highlight was the Wii, grandma Fenske got one for the boys to play and we got our own from Grandma Karen and Marty. Jacob is awesome on guitar hero. I like boxing. It's funny I'm pretty fit and the next day my back was sore from it...great workout! The other night Steve and I stayed up golfing just the two of us. It's a great gift! Thank you Fenskes and Woznys!

We had such a great Christmas this year! The whole Fenske clan was together for the whole week and my mom and Marty came up Christmas day. It was so great to be with our loved ones except my sister..someday we will spend Christmas together girl!
