Many of you know that my husband likes to hold it over me that his is 5 weeks younger than me. So from my birthday in December to his, well, today. I have to deal with him being “married to an older woman” and such for a while. But on January 8, it is not the case as we become the same age. Right? That’s how it works, right?
Today happened to be back to school for the kids and Jeremiah happened to have off work. So we took advantage of our kid-free day and headed to the movies to see The Hobbit. It was lovely. We even watched it on the IMAX screen in 3D.
The kids could hardly wait to give Dad his big presents that they worked very hard on. But we ate homemade lasagna and salad (as requested for the birthday dinner) first. Then the kids sang (very loudly) Happy Birthday to our favorite dad as he welcomed his 36th birthday.
Again, the kids could hardly wait for the birthday boy to take his first bite so they could dive into the red velvet cake with peanut butter icing.
It was finally time for the kids to give dad their gifts. They worked so hard putting this together. They made one of the crafts out of their Highlights magazine. It was a game. They all took part in putting it together. Jacob stated that he drew the mountains!
They played a round and happily put it away for another time. I was so proud they made something that made sense and they did it together!
Happy Birthday, Jeremiah. We love you!
