OK, I am not the inventor of LEGO's, but since you see everything as Legos, you might not notice the difference.
I can't make you a cake this cool, but we can get you a picture of one, so here it is.
We love you very much, and we thank God for giving us the gift of a clever, funny, sweet boy like you.
Happy 10th birthday!

Anyways, we recently went to Recycled Books in San Jose, and our son took a picture of the Emergency Exit, right below.
What is extra cool is that he submitted this picture to Failblog, and they actually published it today! Here is the entry:http://failblog.org/2011/01/26/epic-fail-photos-emergency-exit-fail-6/

Last year, there were 35,000 participants, and organizers were expecting more this year.

Just seems like a better shopping experience could be had elsewhere. Every once in while though, you gotta go get a free sample at See's, Check out Best Buy, catch a movie, or just take a walk while the weather outside dips all the way down to the 50's and turns nasty.
We recently did just that, and on the busiest shopping day of the year. Come take a stroll with us to our local mall and have a look around.

Really? And it is not even the most expensive one!
Man, I'll take my own.
For whatever reason this past Christmas, the two smaller kids wanted to mail off letters to Santa.
They never asked to do this before!
After dinner it was off to Byzantine Divine Liturgy. It was one of their shorter liturgies. Only three hours.
Lizzie has been wanting to wear Monica's old First Communion dress somewhere. We decided Christmas Eve was special enough for a dress that fancy.
In spite of our late night, we all woke up early Christmas morning to open presents.
Twelve days later, it was time to break out the Official Mendoza Family Epiphany Wrapping Paper.
After Mass, we had a Rosca de Reyes (Three Kings Bread). The lucky person to find the hidden baby Jesus figure in the bread won a glamorous aluminum foil crown and a collectible photo of the Mission. Taken by your humble blogger.

Happy birthday, sweetheart!
Here, enjoy a delicious Princess cake.
Also, please enjoy this video of a love song by a 70'2 big haired rocker who amazingly is still alive.
Happy Birthday again, Sweetheart. I love you very much.

Happy Birthday Laurie! We can't take you to Chuck E. Cheese, so we hope you will like this picture of a cake. I know it says you are six, and we all know you are twenty-nine, but close enough, right? And who doesn't love Disney Princesses? So we hope you are having a great day, Catholic Kansas Mom!
