The kids love it when we decorate the stairway for their birthdays. It's special and I feel like the Easter bunny sneaking around decorating in the middle of the night.
Monday I ordered Domino's for her birthday since I really couldn't take her out to lunch. I suppose we could have taken our bikes somewhere but that would require highway riding for us and I'm not riding my bike on the highway with Houston drivers. Needless to say, lunch was a carb fest.
That night we had plans to take her to the Melting Pot where they had a magician who performed table to table. I had reservations and everything. Rachel decided that she didn't want to go anywhere that night. She was sleepy and it was actually raining outside (!!) and so we just stayed home.
But before the rain came down we had a little bit of a surprise as golf-ball sized hail rained down and hit our windows. I just knew one of them was going to break but we made it through in one piece. Unfortunately it did cause some accidents on the roads since it happened right around the time of rush hour.
Yesterday I was still without Vincent Van Go so we stayed home and did lots of school work. Rachel is working through two years of math this summer because she wants to take a physics class with her friends next year.
It was a very low carb day for me yesterday complete with deviled eggs (oh, they're so good) and breakfast tacos for dinner: low carb tortillas, eggs, turkey sausage crumbles, cheese and salsa.
|Something bad must have happened with the upload of this picture. There's eggs and then trees? You get the idea though.|

I did finally get my van back last night. We're not even going to talk about how much it cost but let's just say my money tree in the backyard has been plucked clean. Yikes. Apparently there was a relay problem. I don't know. Something electrical. At least I have my box-on-wheels back.
And I leave you with a parting shot. Charlie took one of Rachel's birthday balloons and turned it into an eyeball. Boys are so weird. :)
