Good Times

Yesterday was my husband's birthday. Birthdays around here aren't celebrated in a very elaborate way, but they are still a big deal.
When I was a single mom, my kids woke up to birthday cake for breakfast on their birthdays.
For Nick's birthday, I made a real breakfast. He requested eggs, ham, toast and hashbrowns. He's a breakfast kind of dude! After breakfast, we gave him his gifts. There was a common theme this year.

He has been asking for this gadget for a while now. I had convinced him we had no room for it (which is true) so he thought he wasn't getting it for now. I'm not sure what you call it, but it holds a little pony keg of beer and keeps it cold. Nothing like cold beer on tap!

This is a bottle opener shaped like the Starship Enterprise. He really liked both of his gifts. He said we've made drinking beer a little easier.
He loves the commercial for Baskin Robbins ice cream cake (which is annoying to me) and he is constantly singing the song. Sooo... it only made sense...

He's been singing the annoying song for two days now.
My favorite moment was this one:

This is the kid sitting with her dad to map out her next semester of college. It does my heart good to see this kid lean on him and count on him for so much. He's a wonderful man and has stepped in to be a fantastic father to my kids. I'm a blessed woman.
I just realized he has on three different shirts in these photos. No wonder I have so much laundry.

With gifts like that, maybe his shirt should read, "Hangover Football" instead of Crownover. :)

Looks like he got the t-shirt right the first time!
He looks so happy in all the photos.
