Now thats a good husband!

As many of you know, yesterday was my birthday. In years past my birthday has become lumped in with the many holidays that surround it (namely Christmas and New Years). My day always seemed to be full of Birthday/Christmas presents, or Birthday/New Year parties. Alas, my sweet mother always made sure my birthday was special and that I felt like I was important. I was having an especially hard time this year without her and feeling a little down. Kira came up from Salt Lake to spend the day with us and that was nice, but it was still kind of a down day.
Then about noon Kira sent us out to lunch while she watched our kids (the day was looking up). How could I pass up a full 2 hours without my kids. So Cory took me to Burger King for a Whopper (I'd wanted one for 2 days) an then to several local shops. I thought at one point that we should head for home, but he was darn persistent about keeping me out.
Now here comes the part that I'm sure half of you reading this were in on. We got home at about 2 o'clock and what did I find but my house in full Hawaiian garb, and a room full of friends. Can you believe it! A surprise part for little ol' me. It was the first surprise party I've ever had and it was wonderful. There was good food and good company and I loved every minute of it. So I'd just like to profess from the top of my blog, MY HUSBAND IS THE BEST HUSBAND IN THE WORLD! Thank you sweetie from the bottom of my heart.
As a side note I'm told that Kira did a fare share of the work for my sweet boy so here's a big ol' cyber hug for her as well. I love you friend!

I'm sorry I couldn't make it there as well, I'm glad you had a happy birthday and that all turned out well. You deserved a day to celebrate you...I'm glad you got one!

I think that every day should be a day to celebrate us. I would like to tell you that I didn't do much, and I think that your cute friend Jaime said it best, normal husbands don't do things like that. We all pray that ours will however.

What a fun surprise! I am so glad you have such a wonderful husband - you desire the best. I do remember you and the crazy May term we had living together. Good Times!
