Happy Birthday Babe!

Saturday was Kristoffer's Birthday!!!  I can't believe my husband is 31, only because I can't believe I'm 27!  When did THIS happen?!  Although I had to work on Saturday, we bookended his birthday with some wonderful things.  Friday night our good friends watched the kids and we went on a *MUCH* needed date.  His request?  BBQ.  So we went out for BBQ and then walked around in the mall for a bit...coming to the bitter conclusion that both of *desperately* need new clothes...as a matter of dignity!  Then Sunday after church we celebrated with some friends.  I don't care how old you get, everyone deserves to have a happy and wonderful birthday and feel loved.

And how did we celebrate on Sunday?

With THIS...Kris's *favorite* pasta dish.

 And THIS...some very manly pulled pork sandwiches.  Mmmmmmm.
 And some of these...I mean, our friends of course!
 And what would a birthday be without that...a cake...it's more a mound of luscious chocolate frosting ON cake.
I just love the look in Marin's eyes as she ogles the cake with magical gleaming candles on top.  Such wonder and anticipation!
 And yes, we DID sing Happy Birthday to the birthday boy.
 So Happy Happy Birthday to my amazing man and the wonderful father of our children.  I couldn't have asked for a better husband!

YAY for birthdays!!! And yay for Daddies coming home!!! If only they'd come home around 2:30, 3:00... that's when I was always at my daily desperation... Then there were 2-3 HOURS to fill AND keep my patience level up!!
