My favorite boy Cory turned 4 over the weekend. We all celebrated at a brewery restaurant called BJ’s (get your minds out of the gutter!). Pizza and pizookies were the order of the day. What’s a pizookie? A big, hot pan cookie right out of the oven with vanilla ice cream melted all over it.
Cory is a huge fan of Thomas the Tank Engine and his biggest dream was to get the Roundhouse, a toy that is kind of like a train garage for Thomas and his friends. Six of us chipped in to get it for him and he was totally silent after he unwrapped the package (which for talkative Cory means he was stunned when he saw what he got!) His grandmother Shirley says he’s been playing with it ever since!
We all think Cory will be a civil engineer when he grows up. He comes up with these elaborate train track layouts without any help from grownups. They always link together to form a smoothly closed path, which amazes me as there are so many different shaped tracks to put together.

Cory’s unexpected vocabulary words and interesting phrases crack us up!! Here my hubby Bill is treated to the latest “Coryism”.
