Wedding Wine

Matt and I agree that the best gift that we got at our wedding was from our friends, Adam and Gaurav.  The clever boys gave us bottles of wine that corresponded with happy fun days in our lives together.  We have had Adam/Gaurav wine on our first anniversary, the birth of our first child, and now for our 5-year anniversary.  We still have a lovely bottle of red waiting for us when we reach 10 years.  (now if that’s not incentive to stay together, I don’t know what is!)

THANK YOU, Adam and Gaurav, for such a badass and fun gift.  We miss you both…come and see us!!  You can hang out with the kids and get to know them and Matt and I will go to a bar.  Please.  We need a break.

Oh my god that is soooo cute. You guys make for one hell of a beautiful family.

I would be delighted to come by and see you all when I’m next in Houston – or you can come stay with me in San Francisco!

Congrats on the 5 years. You guys are doing a great job. Keep it up!

That is such a *great* gift idea! I’m totally swiping it for some friends getting married soon.

well, for all of the many handreds of hours we spent coming up with that brilliant scheme we expect royalties… At the time they would have been referred to as no less than royalties TO THE MAX.
In other news I call bs on 5 years. Outside of pbo looking older than I act some percentage of the time. The Halpern-Steinermans were in town for the weekend and did a fairly good job of convincing me that since there are no mutual weddings in the future I should find some other excuse to drag my lazy ass to HTown before long. If I make it happen y’all will be first to know..


Happy First Birthday, Carson!

Carson is one year old today!  We had a ball at the birthday party – 325 of them to be exact.   An inflatable ball pit in the living room, hot dogs, burgers, cake, and good friends…what more could you ask for on a Sunday afternoon?  (OK, football and beer.  Fear not, the Texans were on TV and the ice chest spilleth over with Bud Light.  NOW you have your perfect Sunday afternoon.)

A slow start to the cake eating…

Which Josh decided to hurry along…

Carson wasn’t too impressed with the mess.

Or the clean up.  :)

Lizard made all the boys matching ball shirts and Parker was thrilled.

And, of course, the birthday boy was not left out.

Cute kids come from hot moms and dads!

And for further evidence:

Happy, happy birthday, Carson!  We love you!!
