His One Big Chance.... Gone

So, here we go, Steve's birthday! Hooray! We had ice cream cake and had a few friends over to help us eat it. Then I was sick for the next two days... lol But it was a pretty fun night. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the cake with his big 29 candles on it, but here's a picture of what is left as of tonight...

Here's Steve's big haul from his birthday and Valentine's day. Thanks everyone!

He got the most interesting cards this year... Here, for the benefit of you all, is an entertaining card from Bill and Kerry. Turn your volume up!

The only downside to this year's birthday, is what Steve realized watching Idol this week... He has missed the age limit to try out for Idol, and is perhaps wishing that he would have made one last trip as a 28-year-old... Maybe they'll let 30-year-olds try next year; we'll keep our fingers crossed!

We just know that Steve would love to hear Paula say something crazy in person, enjoy basking in Simon's sarcasm, and throw a "Dawg!" to Randy...

More on our latest aquisitions.

So, we are finally posting pictures of Steve's favorite new baby.
Here is our TV, showing one of our favorite drop-your-jaw scenes from Galapagos.

Also, for your viewing pleasure, some new pictures of the sugar gliders, now officially named Keena and Zahira. They are taking to their room quite nicely and love to come out and explore now, as the pictures show.

Apparently baths are best when hanging by two feet.

The gliders mid-jump onto the Chinchilla cage, one of their favorite places to climb.

Running across textbooks. They like to hide on top of the books on our shelf.

Keena pointing to her favorite volume of Elder Maxwell quotes.

For some reason, the best way to get a refreshing drink, is upside down...

Lastly, because we thought it would never happen, Nicolle sewing! And the finished product - a sleeping pouch for the girls. Simple, I know, but still...
