Grillin' It Up!

Now that we have a house, we really wanted an outdoor grill. Yesterday, we got it! Justin's parents made it into town and we celebrated with steak and shrimp on the grill, yummy! Today we made corn on the cob and stuffed hamburgers (artichoke hearts, chopped onion and avocado mixed into the hamburger meat). It was delicious, but I am soooo stuffed! Not to mention the quart of ice cream each that we got from Baskin Robbin's last night. Don't worry, I didn't eat it all, I could actually barely get it down 1/2 inch from the top.
This afternoon we went to the Chandler Mall to the Build-A-Bear workshop. Justin's parents had given Carrie a gift card for Christmas and we hadn't used it yet. She got a gray kitty and we named her Suzie. She didn't really like her while we were in the store, but once we got home she wouldn't stop giving it hugs. Every time we'd say, "Can you give Suzie hugs?" she'd pick her up, squeeze her and say "Awww...." Because that's exactly what we all say when we see her hug it. So now anytime she hugs anyone, stuffed animal or person, she says. "Awww..."
Don't mind the strange face Carrie is making
We're having a fun-filled weekend with Justin's parents. We're so excited they got to come visit for a few days! (and thanks again for the build-a-cat)
