As a surprise, I ordered this picture for Natalie from a game we went to in June.

DODGERS UPDATE: For the first time in four years the Dodgers have won the National League West Championship! In your face Diamondbacks!! They start the postseason Wednesday at 4:30 MST against the Chicago Cubs and you can bet Natalie and I will be watching it! Our hopes are high that they could win the World Series! If anyone wants to come see the games with us on Wednesday, Thursday, or Saturday, you are more than welcome to come to our apartment: BSF+D (bring some food and drinks). But please make sure to call us before you come so we can make sure our apartment is spick and span!

Today is Bryan's birthday!!! And he sure had a wonderful one! (In my opinion and his as well). It started with me waking up at 6:15am to make him a delicious breakfast in bed including pancakes, eggs, toast, chocolate milk and yes, chocolate cake! Then off to school it was, but not before he found the few love notes I left him in his shoe and such :) We really got to celebrate his birthday after work when we went to the Brick Oven with my brother, sister-in-law, and 3 month old nephew: Johann, Deborah and Henry. We love hanging out with them! They also paid for our dinner which was so kind of them! We had lots of pizza and the waiters brought him some chocolate mousse and sang to him. After, we headed over to our apartment for cake and presents (Bryan's favorite part). It included all of us previously mentioned and Bryan's close friend Kevin from his work. I made him chocolate cake with chocolate icing, per his request. From Johann and Deborah, Bryan received a really cool Dodger cup that you can put in the freezer and it will keep your drink cold when you take the cup out and they also got him a movie gift card. We LOVE going to the movies so it was the perfect gift! Next he opened the gift from his parents which was, of course, his favorite Disney movie that just came out on DVD: The Nightmare Before Christmas!! Finally, he opened the waffle maker that I gave him (which, yes, he has been wanting one for about 6 months now, it's true, it's not for me I promise!). And then for the last gift, his most favorite of all, the DAVID BECKHAM JERSEY!!!!! Oh man, that sure made him happy, which indeed makes me happy. It has been a great day (besides having to go to school and work on his birthday-nobody should have to do that). So Bryan is officially 23 and still young. I'm just so grateful that I am able to share this day with him and really hope I made it worth his while. Oh, also, we ordered a Spanish card deck, which are cards that they have in Uruguay and Paraguay, and they arrived today, so we just included that as one of his birthday gifts as well. It has been a nice day :)
Nice pose ;)
