darric and kenzie went to watch vegas elite play at a volleyball tournament this morning. that's the other team that kenzie was thinking about playing for. while they were gone, i attempted to make my sugar cookies again. (i tried last night and they turned out super sticky. i had no patience and just threw the dough away) they were still sticky today, but i floured them up really well and eventually could get them off the table and onto the pan. luckily, all that flour wasn't too much and they ended up tasting great.
at 2:30, we all went over to my mom and dad's for our first monthly birthday dinner. tonight we were celebrating me, madi and miss posie. mom made enchiladas (my choice) taco soup (madi's choice) taquitos and squash (jen's choice even though it wasn't her birthday). jen brought some burritos too. it was all very good. mom and dad put up the volleyball net and some of us played some vball. best moment of the night... when kenzie ripped her pants. right up her backside. grandma got her some new jeans and she was good to go.
we came inside for dessert. i brought a chocolate nothing bundt cake and my cookies. we sang happy birthday to us and let posie blow the candles out. we got to open presents next. madi got a new purse, gumballs, an itunes gift card, skittles, joanns gift card and $40. i scored some more too with a cute basket and tray, target gift card and some mini wood hangers to hang pictures with.
when we got home, we got right to work on max's science fair project. shame on us for waiting til the last minute. i found a project online a few weeks ago that showed how to power a light bulb using lemons. so we knew what we were going to do, just didn't start doing anything until now. with darric's brains and my creativity, we finally got everything figured out and working. we finished the rest of it up on monday and he took it to school on tuesday. the real test will be at the science fair when max gets to hook it all up and explain how it works. we think he's got it.
