Spider-man, Spider-man

Note: click on the pictures to see them bigger if you like!

It was Adam's 30th birthday yesterday! Look who came to pay him a birthday surprise visit!


A.K.A.: Brother-in-law/Comic Geek Buddy Adelmo!

I arranged for Adelmo to make a surprise visit for Adam's big 3-0 so they could spend some well deserved geeking around time together.

Here are a couple pics from Adam's birthday festivities:

Opening gifts:

A bird feeder so Adam can lure birds to our backyard. He hopes to see a cardinal again:

More goodies for the comic room:

2 tickets to WWF Monday Night RAW!

And another special craft project from me for the comic room:
A picture frame made out of an old hardback comic book with a photo of me as Wonder Woman (Photoshop is magical)!

Here is the picture in all it's glory:

A couple pics from dinner. Goofing around with brother Joey:

It was a good day! Happy birthday Adam!

In other news:

The upstairs renovation is coming along. We've ordered carpet, which we expect to be installed in the next week or two. The upstairs windows should be here by the end of March. Here are a couple of pictures of Adam sanding upstairs to prepare to stain some of the wood work:

Also, in my effort to furnish the house one step at a time, I bought a new rug from Crate & Barrel to go under the dining room table. I likey likey. Here are a couple pics:

And, on another note -- and may I say I hope this does not turn into a bigger story...

We found what appears to be mouse droppings on our deck OUTSIDE:

Here, Adam investigates:

So, now a trap is set in the basement -- just in case, the mouse, who I like to refer to as Victor, decides to come inside:

Hopefully our next post will not have a picture of a bludgeoned Stewart Little :)

Till next time,
Carole (& Adam)
