The Big 3-0

My favorite Man celebrated 30 years yesterday! The day started off rough (Sophia forgot her booster seat for a field trip so I had to rush up to her school with wet hair and a stinky baby) but ended great! We hurried and set up some decor before he got home from work. Do you love the pink streamers? That's what you get when you have a houseful of girls! Here's his (poor excuse for a) cake. I almost got the Cheesecake Factory Reese's cheesecake at Sam's club but decided on another one of his favorites instead. The bottom layer is ding dongs, the middle layer is chocolate covered Twinkies, the third layer is a Twinkies and it's topped with a Reese's PB tree. Maybe I should have gone for the cheesecake.Here's one of his gifts. They're night vision goggles. He was so excited about them but they don't work! We're going to get a fresh set of batteries today and keep our fingers crossed that that does the trick.

Happy Birthday Douglas! I hope it was a good one for you. We're going to celebrate for real at Ruby River tonight (thanks to the GC from work) so hopefully that will make up for everything yesterday).

Finally, here's our Christmas card picture for the year. We only had enough to send to family but know that you are still loved. Happy Holidays!

Happy Birthday Doug! Happy hunting with those sweet night vision binocs. The Christmas card is very cute. A little creepy, but mostly cute.
