Happy Birthday Mark!

So Wednesday was Mark's birthday. I had the day off so I spent most of the day at Mom and Dad's making a skirt and just hanging out. Mark wanted to challenge me in Guitar Hero so we went to my house where Mark quickly found out he wasn't as much competition for me as he thought he was:) Just kidding Mark, you were a worthy opponent. After we played we headed back to Mom and Dad's for an awesome birthday dinner of bratwurst and sauerkraut. It was such a good dinner and a very good choice by Mark. After dinner Mark wanted to play a game of croquet. It was really fun even though I was the first one eliminated. We then had some dessert and just sat around and talked for a little while until Mark had to leave to go up to Salt Lake to hang out with his friends. So Dad, Mom, Ryan and I finished out the birthday celebration by playing miniature gold at Cascade. It was lots of fun, even though the birthday boy wasn't there. We had a great time and we ended the night with some slushes from Sonic. Dad and Mom are so generous and we love spending time with them. It was a really fun day and I hope we can do more things like that more often. Thanks for the fun day!!!

I'm A Slacker

Ok guys sorry I haven't been posting. I feel like I never have anything to put on here so I just don't. Nothing new has been going on with the Dunaways. We've both just been working a lot and just hanging out. We did start a membership with Netflix that we have really enjoyed so far. It's nice not to have to go to the movie store just to walk around and leave with no movies because there is nothing out we want to see. Ryan has been the one picking the movies and I just watch what is brought to our mailbox. The latest movie we watched was The Burbs. Ryan wanted me to watch this movie because we have some neighbors across the street that Ryan and his brother call the Burbs. Now that I have seen the movie, they do have a pretty close resemblance to the family in the movie. It's really kind of creepy but it was a funny movie. But besides watching movies and working we really haven't done anything else.

While Tricia was here Mom, Tricia and I went to the fabric store and Mom suggested she would buy me some material to make a new skirt. I found some material I liked and the other day Mom helped me make it. I had to start out with the simple a-line design and it turned out pretty good thanks to Mom, or it would have been a total disaster. So thank you Mom for helping me! I didn't really have a shirt to go with it so Mom and Dad were really generous and gave me some money to go buy one. So thank you for the shirt as well! But here is the final product. Just ignore the fat girl in the outfit, she is working on getting skinny.
