The Oscars are tonight!

The Lil' Golden Dude As I write this, it dawns on me just how many things Giliane & I actually bet on. :)

Yep, you guessed it. We bet to see who will win an Oscar. We always print out two Oscar ballots and then fill in who we think will win. I'm predicting I'll kick Giliane's butt by at least 4.

How many people actually watch all of these movies? There are plenty of movies on this ballot that, quite frankly, I've never heard of. We've only seen one movie that was nominated for Best Picture: Little Miss Sunshine. Weird movie. Hope that doesn't win it.

I actually like watching the Oscars, but to tell the truth, I couldn't give a fig about what everyone is wearing. I think Giliane likes watching the stars arrive to see who's wearing what. You know, I probably wouldn't mind it too much only I HATE Joan Rivers. Her daughter, too, although the daughter isn't nearly as obnoxious as the mother. Who am I kidding? All the interviewers are annoying as... But I digress.

So order some takeout, turn off the cells, step away from the computers. Grab your significant other, print out the Oscar ballots, and have fun tonight! And don't forget to root for Jeff!!!!!

Happy 60th Birthday, mom!

Man alive, you hit the big 6-0!

Naturally had to have an uber-chocolate cake, with double the frosting!

Oh, please note the black candles. One for every century. Damn, did it again. :) I mean, one for every decade!!!

Oh, of course, what's a little over-the-hill celebration without the decorations to match! So Keri bought some black & white streamers and we "decorated" her kitchen for her!! Even put some balloons in the living room, all appropriately labelled, of course.

In this second picture, you can get an idea of what her kitchen looked like. Black & white as far as the eye could see. On top of that, there were hundreds of little plastic toy balls lying around everywhere. Bailee was going nuts. Brayden & Blayke helped make mom's dream of finding those things for years to come a reality.

At any rate, happy birthday, you old timer!!!
