happy birthday Angie (bird nerd)

Isn't this the funniest magnet and even funnier since Laine chose it for her Aunt Angie for her birthday. Saturday was Angie's birthday. I took the kids, minus Ridge, to a local church's holiday bazaar to check it out and to find presents for Angie. Of course the children were not as interested in roaming around as I was and so we ended up making a decision at the booth we were in front of which had handmade magnets with animals on them. Sommer was trying to get away and I told Laine and Cannon to quickly decide. Laine decided on the purple heart, I noticed it had a bird on it, and Cannon found a dog one made out of a bottle cap. When we got in the car I finally read Laine's magnet and burst out laughing. Is it supposed to be a compliment? When I told the kids what it said they started laughing too and Laine was excited to give Angie something that would make her laugh.
Chad planned a little surprise party for her and invited us (to our house) and some of Angie's friends from work and church. It was a Rock Band party and Eric's friend loaned him a screen and projector from his work so that we could be musicians on the big screen.
Laine saying "peace and love son," a favorite funny phrase around here since hearing it in a picture book at bedtime a few weeks ago.
The party got a little late for Sommer. Eric the couch rock star.
The kids were excited to help give Angie all her presents. Hope you had a wonderful day.
