Trivia Night

It's Thursday night.  Poor Amy had surgery on her gums today.  Also Ariel got a palate expander put in so it was pretty rough and expensive day.  Hopefully everyone feels better quickly!

Last Friday night we had a fundraiser for the elementary school.  It was a coed trivia night where we could drink!  Amy put together a table of 8.
 It was a big, fun crowd.  

Our table.  
 Our neighbors.  
 This team had matching shirts!  They were the Average Joes like from the movie Dodgeball.  
 Everyone brought food.  We had meatballs from my mom.  

 For dessert, I brought one of the King Cakes.  
 It was a big hit!  But nobody found the baby Jesus.  
 Trivia time!  We had two doctors at the table so we better have done well!

 There were 5 rounds.  After 4 we were in 3rd place.  Our team was No More Kids!  
 There was a raffle.  Amy won some jewelry.  
 We ended up in 4th place but we had a fun night!  Have a great weekend!

What Is That a Picture of Eli?

So disappointed we we didn't win!
 Here's some artwork to compare.  Noah is just a bit neater.  
 Speaking of Eli's artwork.  Not so sure about this one.  
 These are from last week.  This was pretty late at night and the boys had just set up a ramp to run their cars down.  They were downstairs and we were all upstairs.  

 I was getting ready for Fat Tuesday.  These are the fastnacht doughnuts I would be eating that day.  
 This is one of 2 King Cakes that I got sent to me from New Orleans.  They are traditional cakes for Mardi Gras.  There is a baby Jesus doll baked in and whoever finds it is supposed to have good luck.  I'm not sure why I got 2 giant cakes.  
 Who was going to eat all of this?  
 This was a school bus accident that our friend's kid got in.  Thankfully she's ok.  All of the injuries were minor.  
 Ariel ran playtime in the basement.

 Our sitter's friend's new dog!

President's Day

It's Tuesday night and I am so full of King Cake and Fastnacht doughnuts.  Thankfully Fat Tuesday only comes around once a year!  Back to last Monday.  It was President's Day and the kids were off.  The twins had their 5 year well checkup.  They were both pretty good.  

 They liked getting their ears checked.  They checked out well.  
 Melissa and the girls and Ali and the boys came over to play.

 We went up to the school.  

 It was warm enough to play outside a while.  
 Then Ariel had a birthday party at Altitude.  

 Chillin' in Aden's room.
