Happy Birthday Daddy!!

Today our best friend, husband and daddy turned 34! We are so thankful to have him in our lives! He had to work today which stinks but we celebrated when he got home with a yummy dinner, chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and 34 melting candles (I had to change the batteries in my camera at the last minute – which didn’t help the melting candles much), and mint chocolate chip ice cream, some of his favorite things. We bought him a new watch - which he really needed - and the big boys made him a card and Sam gave him a dollar from his bank, they also got him “Rockband” for the Wii. I say got “him” but they pretty much used the excuse of his birthday to beg for Rockband for us - and I couldn’t help it…I caved. We’ve had lots of fun lately with Guitar Hero so we thought this would be a fun way for the whole family to join in on the fun. The boys just loved singing Happy Birthday and eating Daddy’s yummy cake. Will ESPECIALLY loved eating the chocolate cake and was BEGGING for more more more! He was covered in chocolate - it was so cute. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful husband and father, we thank our Heavenly Father for him every single day. Happy Happy Birthday Sweetheart!! We LOVE you!!

Happy, happy Birthday, Mark! You are one amazing guy, and simply one of the best daddy's I know! Thanks SO much for inviting us to your family celebration. It truly meant the world to us. We felt like honorary Readings and loved being there. Thanks again, and next time I'm over there, I'm expecting to hear you sing in that microphone, and see Mel on the drums.

You have such a cute little family. I can't believe how big everyone is getting. I still love their big eyes.

What? Mark had a birthday and I missed it?????? Very very bad. Happy late birthday to one of my favorite people. (By the way, Will eating cake pictures on Mark's birthday? Where is Mark eating cake. Maybe that wouldn't be quite as adorable!)

You are definately out numbered! Look at all those boys! They are so cute though! And Will is getting so old!
