2. Friday night Peppy's dad offered to come watch the boys so that we could go on a date. We had dinner at P.F. Changs and saw Side Effects. The last time I went to the movies was when I was pregnant with Owsley. I took Gage to the dollar theater to the see chipmunks movie.

And these red velvet ones are probably the best ones I've ever had. (I hate cream cheese, but I love red velvet cake.)
4. I'm an aunt! Peppy's stepsister in Arizona gave birth to her son, Ezekial Tyler, yesterday. And since neither of my brothers are going to be having children of their own anytime soon, I am claiming little Zeke as my first nephew. :)
