Parties and bowling and babies, oh my!

I've been a little lackadaisical in posting, I realize. (Don't bother looking it up--I DID spell lackadaisical right). In my defense, it has been a busy week. My grandmother has been staying with us, and Abby has spent the last two days at home with her. They've had a ball. I've been spending time with them, and so haven't had time to download the pictures from Abby's birthday--until now. I am taking my grandmother back to Little Rock tomorrow, so I won't be able to post for a few days. These photos should tide you over, though. First, the birthday party.
Is that a great cake or what? I thought I ordered a way bigger size than we needed, but it was pretty much all gone. Her friends had a great time, and she loved being the center of attention:

Finally, a couple of shots of her in action on the gym floor:
Now, onto bowling. I am very pleased to report that I bowled a quite respectable 125 in my second game. We had a great time, but the best part was the matching shirts and awful shoes. Here is a picture of my team, the Fighting Otters, making our "game face":
What kind of boss, you may wonder, would arrange such an outing with a group of people like us, AND put us in matching shirts? This kind:

Just proof that good form does not a great bowler make :) Love ya, KB!

And finally, a picture of the entire Team UGPO. We're a bunch of oddballs, but we're lovable oddballs. What more could you want in an office?

I've decided to end today's post with a picture of my little man, because I feel I've neglected him a little on the blog lately. Gosh, this is one cute kid.

My gosh that cake was a monster - and it was all eaten - Crazy talk. I'm glad Ms. Abby had such a great party.

I want to turn four again! That looked like an amazing party.

Tell everyone that I thoroughly missed not being at the staff retreat. It looked amazingly fun, and I'm a little jealous that I didn't get a cute bowling shirt. All I got to do that day was sit on the side lines, eat bon-bons, and watch the kids try not to kill each other on the playground!

The kids look great, I did forget about Ethan for a while there though, haha. It's okay G, I missed the retreat also: Baby Business. By the by, Nancy, you have been hiding in that office of yours. I am getting the feeling that you are up to something back there, like a mad scientist actualizing some kind of experiment. Come out and talk to me sometime.

P.S. Don't be afraid of my blog, hahaha. I want some comments from you.

Oh how I wish I still got to be in the picture! I miss you all and can truly say you ARE the best boss working in the BEST office!
