Saturday stuff

This Saturday we had our friends the Schoenings over for dinner. We started cooking early, I made a New York cheesecake and I have to say it was one of the best cheesecakes I've made so far. Then Jim and Morgan made his famous "cheeseburger soup" and the Scoenings brought a great salad and delicious rolls. Yum!! Everyone loved the soup, it's delicious every single time we make it. After dinner we hung out a little bit and caught up on the news of our families. Some good, some not so good , but it was good to talk and hear from each other. We played board games and laughed our butts off, everyone had a blast. Look at he pictures of the guys- you can see just how much fun were having!!We made a commitment to each other to get together every other weekend so we can keep closer than we have been lately. We really do miss each other when we don't see enough of our families. Love these guys.

Cameron's 15th bday

Wow, it seems really weird to say Cameron is 15 already. That means he's less than a year away from driving which I cant even imagine. We had a small dinner and cake celebration at the house on Saturday with just us and my sister. Jim bought trick candles for the cake that weren't really too tricky, he blew a few times and got a little help from Rachel to finish up the job. We all got a good laugh out of the shirt that I bought without realizing it says "boobies" , everyone else saw it right away. Pretty funny. We had a super yummy red velvet cake from Costco but we were all too full from dinner to have any until way later. Mike had his wisdom teeth out on Saturday so he could hardly eat much anyway. He recovered pretty quickly though, much quicker than the girls. We got Cameron another new Ipod since his old one is broke, we did warn him this is the last one he'll get from us though, he doesn't have the best track record for taking care of them.
I went out car shopping with my sister on Saturday too- she bought herself a Mini Cooper. It's the first newer car she has ever bought, she gets to bring it home on Monday. Lucky!!
