My Niece, Nephew & Younger Sister!

Saturday I went to watch my niece for her weekly horse back riding lesson. And, I took some pictures since it was a good day weather wise for such. Albeit a bit windy and chilly. After her lesson my sister along with her two and two of their friends and Brian and I went to Ashland for dinner. It was a very nice time with them. We don't get to gather too often since Tyler is 15 and seems to just want to hang with his peeps all the time. But he's a good child and does well in school, so nothing wrong with that. So here are a few pics of our time together. They are growing up so fast it seems. I remember when Tyler was born (12/1)@ 10lbs 12.5 ounces; he was beautiful and on Christmas Day he looked like he was 3 months old.

I'm looking awful in this picture with my sister.

My Birthday Celebration!

The 24th was my 46th birthday and what a great day I had. First of all there was a Ukrops cake on my desk from a colleague who is a very good friend as well. That was such a treat. Later about 13 of my girlfriends met me at Cafe Caturra for a lunch celebration and it was just the best. Here is a picture of Katie and me while there. I love her new hair style and color. And, OMG, Brian had an amazing basket of fruit delivered to my office before I left to meet my friends and I took it with me. It was so impressive and the fruit was awesome. I've posted a picture of it here. I also received many, many well wishes from my friends via FaceBook which was way cool. I can't thank everyone enough for making my day spectacular. Of course, I'm still celebrating as Ming has arranged for my massage therapist to come to my house Sunday for an hour massage. And, Ming's coming over for one as well. Then we plan to have some champagne and sit in the hot tub for a while. But we have to do some stamping as well. I'm entering the SU Artisan Award Contest, so that's why I've been MIA lately.
