Birthdays are kinda a big deal over here. Ok a really big deal. I have a 30 day calendar count down to mine! I have always loved my birthday and have wonderful memories of my mom trying to make sure each one was special. From bringing balloons to school, decorating my locker and even one year ordering me a cake with the face of Chris Kirkpatrick from *N sync on it. Which p.s. when I got home from school and saw that one started to cry tears of joy. My love for all things *N sync growing up is another story. But every birthday was great. Even now as an adult I love birthdays. And now that there are more members of my family club I get to celebrate more often. Jeremy is not as crazy about his birthday, but he goes along with the fun. I think he secretly enjoys it. Ha ha.
This year Sabrina and I decided to give him a big card in the form of our driveway. I opened up the sidewalk chalk and left him messages and art all over. Then we set up a barrier of streamers that he had to break through in order to come into the house. We had presents, dinner and a rice crispy cake with candles waiting for him as soon as he got through the door. We had such a good night. Sabrina started singing happy birthday as soon as touched the cake to light the candles. But we weren't done! The next day we went out for dinner and got fancy ice cream. When it came out everyone's eyes got big! It was such a fun treat. We love ice cream in our house and made short work of eating it.
We had a wonderful birthday weekend celebrating the best husband and dad we know. We are so lucky to call him ours!!
