We had a fun celebration for Rick's birthday this year. I wasn't able to do much for him since I wasn't supposed to leave sitting position. I always make him Homemade Oreo Cookies for his birthday and I was so disappointed I couldn't do it this year. But then, Carly offered to make them for me! Yay! I spent the day on modified bedrest over at her house. She made the cookies, and I frosted them. I made this banner using my Cricut (in sitting position :) ) and Carly picked up balloons for me. We ordered Lou Malnati's Pizza, got an Oberweis Ice Cream Pie, and had Oreo Cookies. It was all delicious!
Funny Story: Rick's mom got him a dress shirt from Nordstrom and I was wrapping it earlier in the day. Daci was watching me and getting so excited for Rick's party. When Rick walked in the house Daci ran to him, yelled, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY! We wrapped your shirt! And we made you cookies!" Oh great, both surprises of the day....ruined :) Haha! It was pretty darn cute though. She was so excited for him!

Rick's brother Sam got home from his mission last week and he came out to visit us.....well, I think he mostly came for his cute nieces :) He adored Daci before he left. She was 10 months at the time and Carly was pregnant with Eleni so he hadn't even met her yet. It was so fun to watch him with the girls. Daci was really shy around him for the first few hours but then she warmed right up to him. She loved playing with him! He was a big help while he was here. He and Carly took Daci and Leni to the Children's Museum one morning while I laid in bed :)
I made him a cross-stitch of the Campinas Brazil Temple (he served in Vitoria, Brazil) and gave it to him while he was here.
