Last Saturday evening I had a couple of unexpected visitors. My brother-in-law Steven, his wife Andrea and daughter Addy, along with my niece Cassie dropped in for a visit. It was good to see them, I was happy that they dropped by. Addy and Logan (and Steven) played while the rest of us chatted. I keep forgetting that I am now a Breinholt Vet, meaning I have been part of this family for twelve years. Luckily Cassie was there so it reminded me how old I am. She was just a little older than Addy when I first met her. Hmmmm... ...that might be a good column in itself. About an hour later Kristy's parents came over too. It was a nice evening.
Here is a pic of Logan hugging Addy goodnight. She is such a cutie!
I invited my sister over for some good ol' fashioned sibling rivalry. Well, it was not much of a contest when it comes to the Atari and Ice Hockey. She came over after all the kids were put to bed. Jennifer came to play the Atari and I went through a whole load of old pictures that we confiscated from our mom. I wanted to find some pictures for the blog and boy I got some gems. It was fun to sit and reminisce about our childhood. And it was a lot of fun teaming up together to wipe out some aliens in Space Invaders. We will need to do that again sometime.
Even when I was young I loved my soda.
Logan was sick today and had a fever of 102. So we kept him home from school today and I didn't work last night so I could watch him during the morning. The best part of a sick Logan is that he likes to cuddle. We watched a marathon of "Phineas and Ferb" the whole afternoon. If you have not seen that show, you need too! Seriously. Here are two of my favorite clips.
It has a platypus! How could I not love it?
Tonight I went to a movie with my dad and brother Nathan. We saw an early showing of "The Men Who Stared At Goats." I was feeling a little blue today and that movie certainly cheered me up. I can't describe it but I can only say that was my type of movie. Clooney and Ewan were so great in this film, I laughed through the whole thing. If you like quirky movies or love either of these actors, you gotta check this movie out. I have to see this again.
I have a pretty cool family and I am happy for the chance to spend time with them.
