The second reason it was a great day was that Stephanie threw a surprise celebration party. May 4th is "Star Wars day" (get it? "May the Fourth be with you") so Stephanie created a themed dinner with all sorts of cleverly named finger foods.
|Star Wars fare dinner: Yoda's soda (sherbet floats), Hutt dogs (Lil' smokies), Luke's lightsabers (frosted pretzel sticks), and Palpatine's produce.|
|Vader taters, Bantha fodder (homemade Butterfingers), Wookie cookies (Oreos), Princess Lays (chips), and "Han" burgers.|
|Stephanie's hair wasn't quite long enough for the Leia buns, so she went for the closest she could get!|
This is the third or fourth of such themed dates Stephanie has put together in the last several months. Since we can't afford to get babysitters very often right now, these dates have been a nice break from the relatively lame Friday night dates I've planned (or more often, failed to plan). I'm really lucky to have a girl like Steph!
And finally, here are a couple of random cute recent pictures.
|Josh, you don't want to know where that's been...|
|We got a nice solid wood bookshelf at a garage sale this week. Later Joshua had fun closing himself in the cabinet.|
|Heather enjoying a raw onion. What is up with this girl?|
