Number 43

Last Tuesday evening we celebrated Donald's 43rd birthday!
I got him a nice case for his new iphone and he really liked it!
But I think the gifts from the kids was more his style...

We celebrated with a carrot cake...

And then gifts...
 Jenelle is gasping at the size of the bag of m&m's that Hannah bought him.

Ivan is explaining all the ingredients of the Take 5 bar.
Thank you Ivan.
Best presents!!

But we actually sort of celebrated for the whole previous Memorial weekend.
Donald spent a lot of time with the yard, garden and the BBQ - three things he really loves to do at home.
Needless to say, we ate well...
BBQ chicken on Sunday and brisket on Monday.

We added mulch to some of our flower beds and it looks so great!!!
We had helpers to spread and shovel...

Mom and Steve gave Donald an Ace gift card and he bought a flag for the house!
It looks great and must be very inspirational as you can see.

Hannah made her dad some cookies to top off his chocolate special weekend.
She bakes very well and does it all by herself.

Tired, but content...a perfect combination.


  1. It looks like a great time was had by all, especially the birthday boy! That carrot cake looks sooo good.
