Birthday Week

Mike's 31st birthday was on Saturday. We celebrated with some delicious grillled Omaha steaks on Friday night. Then, Saturday morning, we got up early and drove to Philadelphia. Mike, Owen, Uncle Carl and Olivia all went to watch Creighton play St. Joe's (in basketball, if you were wondering!).
Ben, Aunt Katie, and I did a little last minute Christmas shopping. Saturday night, the adults went to dinner at Yang Ming's and the kids stayed with a sitter!!! So much fun! We drive back home Sunday after lunch. We had discussed stopping by Sesame Place ( a Sesame Street themed amusement park for their Christmas celebration) but decided against it given that the boys were up at 5am and it was a little chilly. They slept the whole way home and went to bed like troopers at their normal time. Monday am, Owen got up bright and early as normal but Ben slept until 9am!
The birthday celebration continues this Friday. Someone is going to be "big!"
