Happy Birthday Murray

We learned one thing about our kids today,
we have to be careful what traditions we start with the kids.
 Today we celebrated Murray's 33rd Birthday at Chuck-e-Cheese
 for the second year in a row.
 There is no going back now,
 Murray's birthday tradition is now set.
 For the foreseeable future, you will be able to find us at 
Chuck-E-Cheese at noon every October 24th.  
 After lunch the kids got busy right away picking out and wrapping Murray's birthday present.
 And then making Daddy's favorite dessert for his birthday dinner.
 The best part of making cookies... eating the cookie dough!
The minute Murray walked in the door, the kids were ready to give their present!

Can you tell who was the ring-leader in picking out the presents for Daddy?
 For his birthday dinner, Murray chose Pioneer Woman's Dr. Pepper Spicy Shredded Pork.
 If you have never made this, it is a must!!!
It is truly the best bar-b-que!
And you will be amazed how simple it is.

My only suggestion is to strain out the peppers.  Pioneer Woman's family, kids especially, must like spicy, spicy food.  The Lee kids do not do spicy!  After I have shredded the pork and pulled aside the kids' portion, I add a little bit of the sauce back to the pork.  
 I also use Coke instead of Dr. Pepper.
Just look at how tender the pork is!
 My mouth is watering just looking at the pictures.
 Ok, back to Murray's birthday...
Murray's choice for birthday dessert,
barely done Chocolate Chip Cookies served on top of Moose Tracks ice cream

 Happy Birthday Murray!!!

We Love You!
