With a birthday in between Christmas and New Years, it’s hard to get excited about yet another party. Steve always does a great job about making it a fun and special day, but truth be told: by that point I’m worn out from all the parties.
We started the day with a trip to an indoor trampoline center with all the cousins who were in town. Wall-to-wall trampolines with kids jumping all over the place. Hunter got roughed up more than a couple times and Hallie hurt her leg. All in all a decent trip!
Steve was able to make it home from work early enough for us to spend the afternoon together at the mall and he was a great sport.
Steve made me a delicious spice cake with cream cheese frosting and we had a scrumptious turkey and potatoes dinner followed by some presents.
Steve got a new little camera for Christmas (after all these years, he is still intimidated by the humongous camera I seem to have attached to my hip!) so now you’ll be graced with photos from Steve. Not the best picture quality on the smaller camera, but hopefully an effort to capture even more moments!
When Steve asked for a list of Christmas/Birthday “wishes” I willingly provided a number of things, and not surprisingly the list contained a number of tools. Big tools, small tools, power tools. I explained to Steve what each one was used for as he carefully wrote details on a small piece of paper. For Christmas I received a Kreg Jig; which I am more than excited to start using as soon as I’m reunited with my tools. For my birthday I received a Dremel tool. One might wonder what I would need this for, the possibilities are really endless. I’ve borrowed this from our neighbor countless times for a number of projects, and now I have my very own!!
It was a good day and I was so happy to share it with the people I love!
