    It has been a while since we wrote here, I know. I actually haven't taken one single picture since the last one was posted on flickr, but we have been keeping busy.

    Mike celebrated his 31st birthday on Monday, the 14th. We spent the weekend in the Twin Cities where after we watched the Packers win, Dan and Katie made us all a very tasty (and healthy) meal. Then we all went out to a very cool bar in St. Paul, the Muddy Pig, that serves a whole plethora of good beers. For his actual birthday, we stayed home and played his new present from Benjamin and I - Guitar Hero 80's Encore, which is just a blast!

    The previous weekend, we went to see Avenue Q, a very funny and entertaining musical. The tickets were a Christmas present to me from Mike. We had a very fun night away, just the two of us!

    We have a busy few weeks ahead of us, full of very exciting things. Mike will be running the Securian Frozen Half Marathon this month and is helping to organize the Lace Up Against Breast Cancer Half Marathon in February. His big news though is that he has once again registered to run the Boston Marathon this year. He is excited to hopefully have better weather this time and to improve his finishing time.

    I am once again performing as an actor in a murder mystery as a fundraiser for a local charity. If you live in or near Rochester, I highly recommend buying tickets - it is a very fun event (plus all you can drink wine and all you can eat desserts are included)!!

    We will be attending the Twin Cities Food and Wine Experience again this year where one of my personal heroes, Collette Peters (a cake decorator) will be speaking. At the end of February, Mike and I will be jetting off to a much needed relaxing and romantic vacation in Hawaii. It will be our first vacation without Benjamin since before he was born! We are beyond excited!!

    So that is what is going on with Familie Schmitt...I'm sure we will be back with more updates soon!!
