Jason's birthday and Roommates

Many of you remember my post about my dear dear friend Danielle.  If you don't...  here it is.  Well, she called me about a month ago and her husband was being transferred down here for about a year.  That was about the end of the details she had though.  Ha!  

With a bit of finagling and some packing and some shifting...  they arrived with two cars and an economy size bag of paper towels and toilet paper on Sunday.  :)  I couldn't be happier. 

Danielle will only be here for three weeks and then she drives to Minnesota for a wedding.  A very special wedding.  A wedding I will be sure to fill you all in on, with her permission.  Let's just say it involves no bathroom, sitting on haybales, cooking your own shish-kabobs and camping.  Her side eye is spraining.  

Then she is driving back to Pennsylvania and then that night, flying to Germany for three weeks of treatment.  

She gets home, and goes to Disney world for her anniversary.  She is aiming to be back here in TX in November.  :)  But will be at her home for thanksgiving and then back to Germany in December for THREE month's.  oye!  She's my hero.  

And on top of it, she's still working 77 jobs with consulting and such.  She is one busy lady full of energy, let me tell you!  :)  Did I mention I couldn't be happier?  :) 

So, the 24th was Jason's 21st birthday again...  (with about 18 years experience at it) and we went to Lamberts Steak and Whiskey for dinner.  Can I say YUM!  Seriously one of our favorite restaurants.  And the waiter, Nathan, was fantastic!  
oh wait... Jason's eyes are closed... do another.  
Todd and Danielle
the whole gang
and cause we had to...  
Happy birthday my love!  I can't wait to spend the next 50 "21st" birthdays with you!  :-)

Happy Monday...

I don't have a lot to say... just some adorable pictures.  :) 

My gorgeous Dezi who is one funny cat! 
Joe loves to clean and mop...  even the concrete.  
He loves his mop! 
We went to the children's museum and Joe had a blast.  "wonder what THIS button does?"
There was this big blower that you put these paper cups with cuts in them.  They would float all the way up and out.  Joe was enthralled.  
 The grocery section also held GREAT appeal.  
The trains also were great fun. 
There is also this water section with water guns and tubes ... 

cute cute cuteness!

Mr. and Mrs. Zazzetti

So, last weekend my sister got married again.  She and Mike have been dating for about a year and they had gotten engaged about six month's ago but hadn't really gotten anywhere with the planning.  Emilie was in town for her summer visit and they decided why not.  :) 

So, it was a wedding planned in three weeks and it really went off without a hitch.  The weather was hot but beautiful.  Jason had been in town the week before, so Joe and I met him at South Shore Harbor.  We stayed in the hotel that night and had a nice morning.  

The rest of the gang had boated down to Galveston to Moody Gardens.  It was a relaxing day with a nice dinner at the hotel that night.  And sunday morning, at 11:00 am, my sister walked down a path to her husband to be for her beach wedding.  

Taking my shoes off.
