lots of mario kart & hugs & kisses & birthday wishes from the kiddos & me.
miss gracie made the lasagna with a little help from me (all i did was brown the sausage & sautee garlic, carrots & onions). she was so proud, wanting to do every step by herself.
she pressed those noodles down extra hard so they wouldn't move. please disregard unshowered, sick me & all the medicine and junk in the background.
she picked out her "i love daddy" shirt to wear in honor of his birthday. i don't know why she has that look on her face. hard telling with my miss moody.
we were able to tear ben away from mario kart to help make a cake. he is going to have some withdrawls from this game once he is healthy again!
this evening, ben put on his party shirt (a pink floyd one) & got to decorating for the "party" which consisted of a quick song, some cake & presents. daddio got a new guitar tuner (his old one has been mia for quite a while), a pirate treasure kit, a set of pup & pop phonics books (stuff from the gift closet) and several pictures colored by the kiddos. ben thought it might be the best birthday ever!
the kiddos have stopped coughing 24/7 (thank god). ben no longer has that sick look under his eyes. we all still have a ways to go before we are back to normal.
making a wish!
i think it came true, a sweet hug from the kiddos.
happy birthday, honey. i love you so much more than you know. you're my best friend, my soul mate, what keeps me together. thank you. i love you.
