Happy Birthday dear Steve....

Yesterday, all of our family came together to celebrate Steve's birthday.

I felt badly setting up his birthday party after I realized that Tuesday, which is when I invited our adult kids to his party, was also Valentine's Day. I had only paid attention to the fact that they all had Tuesday off... but nobody complained and everybody showed up.

So we ate dinner, ate Valentine's Day candy, ate cake, and then, once we were super full, we played Sponge Bob rummy, which is regular rummy with Sponge Bob cards. I had bought the cards for Christmas, thinking that I was so smart to get a jump start for next year.. but the kids saw them when we came home and unloaded groceries, so they became a Valentine's Day gift instead. ;)

All the while, while we ate, and ate, and ate, and played, Aiden was asleep. When he woke up, he was very excited to find the candy, and he helped himself to as much as his mommy and daddy would let him have.

I am the luckiest person to have such a great family and I'm especially thankful to have such a great husband! He is truly such a blessing to me.

So Steve, again I say: Happy Birthday to you! And many more!
