 I had a great birthday this year.  Ezra's mom, Linda, came up for a visit and so kindly took Greyson off my hands for nearly the whole day!!  Avery and I had a girls day that started with two tickets to see Elmo Live and Buffalo's historic Shea's theatre.  Avery thought it was pretty special of Elmo to come all the way to Buffalo just for my birthday.  Elmo wasn't really at the top of my bday list, but I am glad we got to see a show at Shea's before we leave buffalo.  It was built in 1926, and been completely restored and is definitely a site to see.

Then we had our own Elmo after party at Red Robin for lunch. Here is Ave thanking me for being on a sugar-free diet so she can devour my bday sundae. 
Linda watched the kids again (thank you!) so Ez and I could go out.  Like Elmo, Lady Gaga really wanted to hang out on my birthday this year.  We had tickets, and in because I am the worst gift receiver ever, I decided to try and sell them on craigslist.  Ez bought them for me as a Christmas gift since she was coming to town on the night of my bday, but I just couldn't stomach the price.  I am somewhat of a Gaga fan, but FOUR HUNDRED dollars for OK seats was just crazy to me.  Long story, short we sold them about an hour before the show to one excited teenage girl and her mom.  We still lived it up with dinner at the Cheesecake factory and a movie at the cheap theatre...that's a little more my style.
