Back when I was living in Columbus, Ohio my friends and I started a quote wall. Whenever a bit of brilliance (or otherwise) poured out of someone’s mouth, somebody would yell “Quote!” thus nominating it for Quote Board status. The quote then had to be seconded by someone (it almost always was), and then it would be written down to be forever immortalized on the Quote Board.

This is the modern-day equivalent of that classic piece of my past.

QUOTE BOARD:

“West, why did you poop in my ice cream truck?”

– Grey, 8/8/19

It was a long day,

We couldn’t have asked for a smarter, funnier, and more brilliant daughter.

GREY IS FOUR!

A few weeks ago, our good friend Milan asked Grey what kind of birthday cake she wanted. Her request: “A pink panda cake, with a house on top, with a skeleton on top, and a polar bear candle.”

Pretty specific, right?

Soon after, Milan (who wasn’t able to attend Grey’s party) sent us this sketch.

CAKE SKETCH!

Our other good friend Marla (we have a lot of good friends) got busy building the house and baking the cake. I was in charge of sculpting the skull (which was simplified down from a skeleton) and the polar bear candle holder.

CAKE PARTS!

In the end, Grey’s cake looked pretty close to Milan’s sketch.

CAKE!

Next up… West’s big number two (heh),

It got real wet.

…in a torrential rainstorm, and give her your hoodie to stay dry, from behind…

Phone home.

…it kind of looks like you’re walking with E.T.

Grey does love Reese’s Pieces,

-Shady

They're the tall ones underneath the giant one.

…for stopping by on their way back to Ohio!

That thing just walked into the frame at the last second,

-Shady

Fun brunch with Mana!

…for flying 2,000-plus miles just to stop by for brunch!

She may have had other reasons to be in town,

-Shady

But where's Bubble Cat?!? Or Alien?!?

…for coming to visit last month!

It was the last time the weather was nice,

-Shady

…have all been captured by Krampus!

Despite all our rage...

...we are still just trapped in Krampus' cage!

Grey’s come a long way since her first encounter,

-Shady

Beach bums!

…for coming on down for some beach fun a few weeks ago!

No more beach fun for awhile,

-Shady

…from Chucky!

Chucky!

And a pumpkin!

Pumpkin!

And Supermarket Sweep champions!

Champions!

And from all us Shadys!

Shadys!

And like that, my favorite time of year comes to an end,

-Shady

PS: There was also an appearance of a duck, which some of you may remember.

Ducky!

Another great round of guests!

…for visiting and making for a great weekend!

A mix of old and new friends,

-Shady

Old Poop!
