Yesterday was my bride's birthday! Yeah! I wish I could say that I took her to some exotic place or really awesome restaurant, but I didn't. As she would say, it was a "regular" day.
She went to work, came home, and then we headed to a Christmas party. The folks there knew it was her birthday, so a hearty "Happy Birthday" was sung. We had a great time at the party, and were real glad we went. (I had given her the option, go to this party or go out for her birthday). We'll go out for her birthday later.
The kids and I presented her with gifts and a cake when we got home. The kids enjoyed the cake, Amy and I were stuffed from the party!
The funniest thing happened with her cake that I had never seen before. I had gotten some candles that spelled out Happy Birthday. Kendall had the candles lit and was walking into the living room - we were singing Happy Birthday - and he was about to hand the cake to Amy when all of the candles went out at the same time! The look on Kendall's face was awesome!
Needless to say, it doesn't work well to carry a lit birthday cake underneath a ceiling fan!
Happy Birthday HB!
