Erik celebrated his 31st birthday this past Friday (the 9Th). We met him for lunch, and went to his favorite place, Extreme Pizza. I brought banana bread for the office (it was supposed to be cupcakes, but I didn't have enough eggs and I wasn't about to go to the store at 7:30 in the morning, so I improvised). That night all Erik wanted to do for his birthday was to sit at home and watch the Yankees play (even though I had a willing and free babysitter!!). So I cooked up some ribs and made him his favorite ice-cream cake (lemonade). He opened presents (actually the kids opened them for him), and we enjoyed a nice quiet evening at home.

Tonight we were trying to get Brooklyn settled down and ready for prayers and asking her to fold her arms. This is how the conversation went:
Erik: "Brooklyn, Jesus wants you to fold your arms for prayers."
Marcie (pointing to a big Christus): "Look there's Jesus, he wants you to fold your arms."
Brooklyn (while holding a soccer ball): "Jesus catch!"
Erik: "No Brooklyn, Jesus doesn't want to catch the ball (chuckle, chuckle). Just fold your arms."
Brooklyn (looking up at Jesus with his arms out-stretched): "Hey, fold your arms!"
Oh man. We got a good laugh. Gotta love kids! :)
