Brynn turned 6 yesterday and according to her it was THE BEST BIRTHDAY EVER! We heard that phrase several times during the day. She had a cake decorating party which included a game of "Pin the Hat on the Chef", a little freeze dancing and decorating your own cake. Everyone seemed to have a great time.
This year was the very first year that someone in my own family made a cake for me for my birthday. Not only that, but they got up at 6:30 in the morning to make it before the girls had to go to school. I knew it was going to be a good day when no one woke up crying and I got to stay in bed! Thanks family.
Buddy has grown a bit since we got him as a puppy. He'd really like to be a lap dog if he could. I don't think we're big enough. I'm not sure what I expected when I got a Basset Hound, but it sure wasn't Buddy. He gets jealous if anyone (dogwise) gets any attention. He wasn't going to let Fang be the only one to hang out on Greg's lap.
Greg and I decided that my dad needed a new friend. My mom warned us about giving someone a real animal as a present. If we waited for them to decide, then nothing would ever happen. Since Dad is now retired we figured it would be a good time to follow through. Mom said that the next dog they got should be small so it could stay in the house where they could give it attention. Dad has always wanted to name a dog Fang. I decided that we'd surprise them with a small dog already named Fang. He ended up being a little bigger than what I expected, but he is very sweet and calm. He cleaned up pretty well and I think they like him.
