A Birthday

Yesterday was Rich's birthday.  I had to wait til the last minute to go shopping, because I had to make sure there were "sufficient funds."  We went to Wally.  Good old trusty Wally.  I swear they pump something through the vents to make you spend more money.  I found a shorts outfit for Ryan.  He really does need new clothes.  The outfit was $6.  Don't you wish you could buy a NEW outfit for SIX dollars.  Next I grabbed some black socks for Rich.  Cool gift, right?  Really he has been needing them for a while now.  So I sprung for the nicer kind.  It was his birthday after all.  Then we moved on.  I got him some pens. Do I know my man or what!?  Then I went for what I really came to get.  A prepaid game card for World of War Craft.  Yeah he's a geeky gamer, but he's my geeky gamer.  


Of course the trip wouldn't be complete without a car--actually a motorcycle guy--for Ryan.  And since he got clothes, the girls got something too.  My mom and I split the cost of the game card otherwise I don't think anybody would have gotten clothes.  


When I got home, I made the cake.  I used diet coke instead of oil and water.  The cake plumped up nicely and is super tasty.  I kept the eggs in it.  I made Rich polish sausage for dinner--low fat of course.  And then we opened up presents.  
Play time!

All in all, it was a nice little celebration.  March is actually a big month for birthday in this family.   I know there are at least six this month!
