Oh, and Todd and Brandi, too!! Last night we celebrated the many November birthdays in the Driy family. Eli turned 5 this week, Jonah will be 3 on "Nobember Firty," and Todd and Brandi are... older than me :) We enjoyed some yummy pizza, and the boys opened lots of presents.. though the Cars balloons were one of the biggest hits of the night! One of Jonah's favorite gifts was his new VeggieTales umbrella.. he is now wishing for rain since we won't let him open it in the house anymore!

the boys each got their own cake to blow out candles on!
Yesterday we went with Auntie Liz to Westshore Mall to see the baby tigers. We weren't planning to play with them... but as Auntie said "its a once in a lifetime experience!" Oh wait, we did it last year too, Auntie! :) So we got to spend 8 minutes in 8 week old Edward's cage playing with him, petting him, and we even got to give him his bottle! Suprisingly Jonah warmed right up to him and wasn't afraid at all, dispite being scared at bedtime lately that lions and water buffalo are going to get him. They also had a bigger tiger, a baby kangaroo, and some baby monkeys who were quite funny to watch because they did NOT want to be in their cage!
Last night we took our cute little pirate out trick or treating. We visited some of our neighborhood friends, and then went to see great-grandpa and grandma Maat and Auntie Liz and Uncle Jonny. Jonah loved trick or treating and wanted to eat everything as soon as it went in his bucket. ;) I think we've got enough candy to last until next Halloween!
