Birthday Fellowship

Today is my beautiful bride's birthday. We celebrated more on Friday night. My sister & brother-in-law came over to watch the boys so we could go out. Beth had a coupon for a free burger at Red Robin. We discovered Red Robin while we were in BC. It became one of our favorite chains. So it was fun to go back and get a tasty burger (although Beth's wasn't done as well as she asked--they let her keep her coupon so she may go back tomorrow on a date with Nils. She also had a coupon for a free admission to Comedy Sportz. Laughing is good. And it's nice to not have to worry about offensive humor.

Yesterday (after a morning & afternoon of the boys being on their un-best behavior) we went over to the home of some friends' from church for our Fellowship Meal Group. It was the first time we've been able to attend in months. I made a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting to take. Fellowship is good.

Today after church we took the fixings for taco salad up to some friends who just had a baby. We offered to bring them a meal; they requested that we stay and eat it with them. It was good to have more fellowship. And time with a cute baby (they're not all cute, you know). Even after having experienced two births in our family, its always amazing to see the little miracle of life.

My wife is celebrating right now by watching the USA-Canada hockey game (well, watching and napping). Most of my family is cheering for Canada. They've actually got the players we know better. Either way, it's bound to be a good game.

The sun is shining, the snow is melting and it's around 40 degrees outside. I think a walk might be in order as well. If the birthday girl desires.

Happy birthday, sweetie.
