My honey had only one request this year. He wanted 33 candles on his cake. Not the big 3 candles, but actually 33 individual candles on his cake. Yes, my 33yr old is a big kid at heart. (Don't all women say this? Is there a man that is NOT a giant child? lol)
Well I granted his wish, and along with it, whipped up a quick party in a fireman theme, complete with a fire extinguisher centerpiece which was all funny ha ha to the kids, but on a serious note, I've watched enough episodes of America's Funniest Home Videos to know that although I might win a cash prize and a few laughs if I caught it on tape, it won't be enough to cover a new kitchen should things go terrible wrong!
He really enjoyed it. The kids made him cards. I got him a Texas flag for his new 20ft flagpole (if they are going to see us from the moon, they are gonna know we're from Texas!). Miss Thang got him a new wallet, and the little ones got him each a fancy balloon which they reclaimed the minute he thanked them for it. Later we took him to see the new Star Trek movie and lucked out because it was a double feature at the drive in and we got to watch UP before the space bore began. UP was really good (get your tissue ready) and although I have zero interest in the ST series, Kirk is Hot with a capital H! Which Miss Thang concurred and I'm beginning to realize we are at that weird stage where the "too young" are still hot to me and the "too old" are hot to her. Not liking it. :P
Here are some pics from the day:
The fireman decor as done by miss thang and yours truly...
cake I was so proud to say I decorated in less than 10 minutes because Honey was on his way home from work sooner than expected, but now that I look at it again, I think it looks like it was done in 5 lol
All 33 of em! The front 3 are firetrucks :P
My honey on his special day. His smoker/asthmatic lungs got every candle out on the first breath. I think he was out to prove something...
Two of my rascals chowing on cake. I will more than likely devour whats left throughout the weekend. I have zero will power these days!
Have a good one, and I'll try and get another Home tour challenge post up before Monday. I might do the front yard because Mimi requested gnomes and I want to get some mulch and stuff this weekend. I repainted the little guy just for her too. :)
