Happy Birthday to my man

This past week we celebrated Joey's big 35(getting closer to 40-yikes you're old!! :)  Just keeding. A couple of years ago I told him he should take off work on his birthday each year because, well, gosh, darnit, he deserves it! And you only have one birthday a year, right? So this year's birthday fell on a weekday during Spring Break. Since the kids were home, we decided to do something fun and took a little day trip(next post!) to Oklahoma for some drive thru safari fun(And it was a blast! Can't wait to share the pictures!) I picked up yummy donuts in the morning for breakfast since we were in a hurry and the kids gave their daddy their gifts they bought him and wrapped themselves. They were all food(which is why we had him open them in the morning so he could snack on them on the road). They picked the perfect items: beef jerky, flamin hot cheetos, & a dark chocolate bar. They know their Dad! And I know he enjoyed eating it on the drive. Ella also made him a homemade duck tape tie that he wore to church today:)

We spent most of the day in Oklahoma and then went out for dinner at Rudy's BBQ and came home for cake and icecream. The kids and I decorated the house and cake with Toy Story toys(Shout out to my friend Monda for letting me borrow her slew of Toy Story toys!) and we even played the music from the movie. We are crazy about silly kid-themed family parties over here:) We made Joey stay in his room while we got it all ready and when he came downstairs we got him with silly string. The kids were laughing and laughing, especially Ammon. He had never seen such a thing:) We then devoured way too much chocolate cake and icecream. Oh, and I also have to add that Aubrey did the lettering on the cake-she was so excited to do it and did a great job! It was a WONDERFUL day with our WONDERFUL guy. We love you so much, Joey. I brag on you too much sometimes because well, you are the best!  I don't know what I'd do without you in my life. I hope you had a great birthday. We tried our best to show you we love you and make it special!! xoxoXOXO
