Happy Birthday to Youuuuuuuu
Happy Birthday to my dear Hubby who turns 37 years old today! The boyz gave him a Red Sox tie (he got a Patriots tie for Christmas. Do you sense a theme here? I'm slowly trying to wean him off his favorite brand of ties, Vineyard Vines, that cost a fortune); and his Mom (who is babysitting the boyz today) is preparing a birthday meal of some sort of red meat (I can never keep them straight---pot roast? sirloin? prime rib? Whatever happened to plain old steak?). His birthday cake will be a trifle (layers of chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, Cool Whip, and chocolate Heath bar crunch) that the boyz helped me put together (meaning, they licked, ate, and/or smushed the ingredients while I furiously tried to create the trifle so they wouldn't destroy it and my kitchen). Hubby's mantra about his birthday is, "It's just another day." He says this every year. But I think he secretly enjoys seeing the boyz get excited, especially when they sing to him and "help" him open gifts and blow out candles. Priceless.
