Tayler's birthday party with friends and $20,000!

For Tayler's party with friends, we went to see the movie Eragon. It is sort of like Chronicles of Narnia mixed with some Star Wars ideas. The book was written by a 15 year old (bet his parents are proud!) After the movie, we came home for pizza, cookie cake (Tayler doesn't like cake-weird, huh?), and gifts. The boys also played flash light tag and football.........what would a get together with Tayler be without football? The highlight of the day was when Tayler received a lottery ticket for a gift from a friend. While we thought this was odd, we let him go ahead and scratch it off and see what he won. If you scratched off three $20,000, you won. So, as Brian is watching Tayler scratch off the pieces (there is a pic of this below), the excitement grew as Tayler scratched off two, then three $20,000 pieces. Tayler began screaming and jumping up and down. Brian was smiling pretty big and thoughts were racing my mind...(like college fund, here we come:) Then, we hear from the friend (over Tayler's screams) IT IS FAKE, IT IS FAKE! Ah, pretty funny, right? That would've been one nice gift!
