If I had a hammer...

Lisa's party has come and gone! We had over 30 people make an appearance tonight to wish her a happy 25th birthday. All the planning and hosting and party prep has worn me out. So this post is about all you'll get out of me. (The above picture is Lisa with a custom painted hard-hat. (via my Uncle Greg, who paints cars for Boyd.) The hat looks great and Lisa wore it the rest of the night. (I'm afraid she might bring it to bed with her...))

Ok, maybe you'll get more: We did a Pinata at Lisa's party and that went over really well. It was fun to see adults going at a small cardboard bull with a metal pole for the reward of candy. We also played pin the tail on the donkey (for no rewards) and people were laughing through a lot of it so I assume it went well. We got wings from the Wing Dome in Kirkland, and cupcakes from Cupcake Royale in Ballard. Plus we had a salad bar and some fantasic punch. (That I only modified slightly) It seems a lot of folks had fun and I know Lisa had a good time as well.

A big thanks to my folks, Lisa's folks, and Ryan Palmer for all the help. It would have been impossible to pull off without you guys.

A big thanks to everyone as well who has been praying for Lisa and I as we continue to go through cancer treatments together. I don't know what this week will hold, but hopefully some light will be shed come tomorrow. Thanks again for all the prayers and support.

    Well...if I had a hammer. I would hammer in the morning. I would also hammer in the evening. Heck, I would hammer all over this land.

    I'm glad the birthday went well. Kids parties are the most fun anyways.

    "And that's it and that's the only thing I need, is this. I don't need this or this. Just this hammer. And this hard hat, the hammer and the hard hat and that's all I need. And this remote control."

    Come on, you had to see that quote coming, albeit slightly modified for Lisa ;)
