Happy Birthday!

Well, Thursday was Christopher's 24th birthday! And though we weren't in Paris, I think he had a pretty good birthday!

He went early that morning for an eye appointment and got 2 new pairs of glasses and some contacts...thank goodness, apparently his prescription had changed dramatically since his last eye exam and he's been having really bad head aches because his old glasses werent strong enough.

After that, we headed over to a place called Pop Bellies, which is our favorite restaurant out here. Its one of the first places we ate at when we first got out here and we've been there many times since and havent been disappointed. Christopher had his favorite, a traditional English Breakfast (sausage, bacon, eggs, hashbrowns, beans, mushrooms, and toast) and I had pan fried wild mushrooms on focaccia bread. Mine was absolutely phenomenal! When they said wild mushrooms, they meant wild mushrooms! They were pan fried in butter and herbs and it made the best sauce! And of course, Christopher looooved his breakfast!

Once we finished brunch, we headed to the base to check the mail and stop by the BX, where we got Christopher's birthday present.... a Wii!!! We also bought WiiFit and the original Super Mario Bros game that we used to play when we were little, so we've been having a lot of fun the past couple of days!

I made him Chicken Marsala for dinner and Mymom's Peanut Scotch Pie for his birthday "cake". Everything turned out really well and the Birthday Boy loved it all! He even danced around the kitchen with his, he was dancing to "Phantom of the Opera" (I was listening to it while cooking dinner).

*Also, February and March are the birthday months for our families and friends, so Happy Birthday everyone: Poppy, Denise, Brandie, Kasey, ME, Kellea, Jeff Sierzenga, Christopher, Jared, Izzie, Mom Wofford, Parker, Aaron, Mymom, Ashley Sierzenga, Josh, and Lisa...and I think that's everyone, though I feel like I'm missing someone....*
