I-N-I! Last Saturday, we took Sean to his very first Illinois football game!!! I dusted off the old Illinois football jersey I bought for Nick almost 9 years ago and viola, we were ready to go! He must have been good luck as the Illini brought home another win. Sean lasted up until half time, but then he was starting to get a little restless. In his defense, it wasn't a very exciting game.

He really liked when Illinois scored as they set off the orange and blue fireworks (I just liked that they scored)! He also really liked Northern Illinois mascot - the Huskie. He thought it was pretty funny that this big white and black dog would dance, clap and wave his "paws" around!

Here he is on the way to the game

At the game...

I LOVE this picture!

Happy Birthday Daddy!

As much as Jamie likes to make fun of MY "Birthday Month", I would like you all to know we are on week two of his birthday festivities!! Last Friday was his actual birthday, and I tried to surprise him with this A-M-A-Z-I-N-G candy bouquet (of which I failed to take a picture of). But he surprised me by showing up at work (where it was stashed) and I didn't have time to hide it. Regardless, it was a hit, and we've all been enjoying it! We then went to have lunch with his friend Jon and his girlfriend Holly. That night, we went to dinner with our besties to Alexanders Steakhouse. One word - YUM. Here are a few pictures from his birthday dinner.

This weekend we'll continue the celebration with a party at our house with our friends. Looking forward to it!!
