The 2 things I am most thankful for...

My wonderful husband and beautiful daughter.

Laura enjoyed her first Thanksgiving. And I enjoyed the cute Venezuelan family who was there and took care of Laura the whole time so I could help set up and clean up. She loves hearing them speak in Spanish. This is the 12 year old daughter, Denise, who carried her everywhere she went. Maybe a potential babysitter?

Happy Birthday to us!

Peter and I both celebrated our birthday last Thursday. I am glad that Peter is finally 24, but he is not catching up because I turned 27! We had birthday dinner and cake at our house on Thursday and then celebrated by going out on a date Friday night and dropped our baby off at a friend's. It is the first time we have been just the two of us since Laura was born.

My parents called and made reservations at a Korean restuarant and paid for us. The food was awesome and thanks to my parents, Peter didn't have to choose one thing and was able to order everything he wanted. The food was excellent. When we finished and asked for our ticket, the Korean lady told us to wait. 5 minutes later she came out with a Wal-Mart birthday cake with lighted candles and announced to everyone in the restaurant, in her broken english, that it was our birthday and everyone sang to us.
i'm not quite sure what my mother said or paid to that little Korean lady, but it was such a fun surprise.

I hate toys. I hate organizing them. I hate picking them up. And I hate finding them all over the house. Because of these reasons, I haven't bought any toys for Laura, even though she is getting to the age where she is starting to appreciate them. I always tell Peter that there is no reason to buy a toy when she has just as much fun playing with a piece of paper or a wooden spoon. Well, two days ago I caught her trying to swallow a big piece of paper and yesterday she poked herself in the eye with a wooden spoon. So I gave in today and bought her a toy to play with. I don't think she likes it anymore than the wooden spoon, but at least I am not worried about her hurting herself.
